KC Star sets itself up for humiliation

You can read our original story here

If you watched the show or checked the site yesterday, you probably saw Glenn’s coverage of an assassination attempt on the Governor of Missouri, which was largely ignored by the national media. Glenn made a big deal about the lack of coverage, which upset The Kansas City Star, and one of their reporters wrote a whole article about Glenn’s coverage despite not tuning into the show or tracking down the audio. However, if the Kansas City Star had listened to the show they would have known Glenn did acknowledge the paper.

“[We] specifically mention the Kansas City Star and their coverage of it as one of the very few who did,” Stu said.

The Kansas City Star article seemed to be offended with the way Glenn covered the story, so Stu and Pat decided to tackle some of the articles main points.

From the Kansas City Star (Stu and Pat’s responses will be in parentheses.)

1. “The story was big local news, occupying the lead position on the Sept. 15 and 16 Star front pages, both times with the color mugshot of the suspect. Every other major news source in town also played it very prominently.” (“Again, though, we weren't talking about whether the incident was reported on.  We were talking about why Che Guevara and all the leftwing rhetoric this guy was doing it for seemed to be completely eliminated from the coverage” – Stu. “And why nobody else picked it up, I mean, you would think that would be a national story, not just a local Kansas City one.” – Pat)

2. “Brezik had years earlier been diagnosed with the serious mental illness of paranoid schizophrenia -- something that I believe most reasonable people would agree obviates drawing any conclusions about how his supposed political beliefs may have informed his actions.” ( “You mean like what our entire argument was about Tucson, the point that the fact that he's probably crazy ‑‑ it has nothing to do with politics?” - Stu)

3. “It's nonsense to declare it wasn't reported elsewhere. A cursory check of the Nexis news database shows that it most certainly did play in the media outside this area, in sources as far-flung as The Virginian-Pilot in Norfolk, Va., The Bismarck Tribune in North Dakota, and the National Journal's Hotline. Multiple stories went out on the Associated Press wire, and they surely ran in papers and on websites around the world.” (“The reason he uses as far‑flung instead of naming a bunch of them is because that was about it.” – Stu).

Stu pointed out that, while the story should have been more prominently covered on the national level, the show’s main issue was the fact that the assassins leftist interests were neglected in all the coverage.

“I think we came up with seven examples or eight examples of people who picked up the story of the assassination, not the part about how he loved Che Guevara and was doing violent riots that some people, some pie‑baking professors are calling for, by the way, that he was involved in those sorts of things and we seem to be the only one talking about that and a few states like Red State and American Thinker who pointed it out yesterday.  That's the part of the story that we're saying is unfairly uncovered.  Although it wasn't a big enough story in the national conversation.  When you have a governor who's almost killed, it's kind of a big deal,” Stu concluded.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
