Hillary Clinton pimps Al Jazeera over American news

Is Al-Jazerra now the most trusted name in news? Well, that's what Hillary Clinton and other leftist leaders are saying. The network has been gaining popularity ever since the events in Egypt, but people seem to be ignoring it's very anti-American stance. Glenn reacted on radio this morning.

Glenn played audio of Hillary Clinton saying, “ In fact, viewership of Al-Jazeera is going up in the United States because it's real news.  You may not agree with it, but you feel like you're getting real news around the clock instead of a million commercials and arguments between talking heads and the kind of stuff this we do on our news which, you know, is not particularly informative.”

Pat joked, “Imagine having both sides presenter and the viewer would have to make the decision.”

“We knew it was the propaganda arm of the Middle East and Islamic extremism.  We knew it.  Now suddenly we're all saying, oh, yeah, Al-Jazeera, there's real news for you,” Glenn said.

“Why does she say you may not like it?  Because they hate America and everything they do has that spin and they begin from that standpoint with every single story.  America is the great satan.  I was going to say, let's not forget.  They have talking heads, too.  The talking heads are through their contacts, videos of Osama bin Laden and the greatest terrorists on earth because they're playing them all the time,” Stu said.

“Who is their talking head on election night here in America?  Do you know?” Glenn asked.

Glenn explained, “It was Robert McChesney who was saying we should have a PBS, robust, national PBS.  We should pour more money into that.  Let's get rid of all the commercials and everything else.  That's who he goes over to help them with their coverage.  That's who they go for.  He helps them and now everybody in the press, and our own press is saying, we should watch Al-Jazeera.  No, we shouldn't.  If we're not covering it right start covering it right.”

Pat dissected Hillary’s statement. He said, “You have the commercial aspect which the evil corporations are making money on their newscasts.  That's wrong.  We know making money is awful.  When these corporations are making money on news, that's even worse.  You've got debate.  You don't have the talking heads battling back and forth.  We don't want debate, and you have legitimizing a Middle Eastern news source that is completely skewed and not real news.  Not real news.”

“She is not legitimizing them.  She is promoting them.  The numbers are going up.  Why?  Because it's real news.  You have the Secretary of State of the United States of America saying you cannot get real news here in America.  You can only get it from Al-Jazeera and everybody knows it.  This is insanity,” Glenn said.

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.
