SHOCKER: The Blaze reported truth without agenda

Who would have thought that the left would be praising Glenn and The Blaze for their news coverage? That’s exactly what happened last week when Scott Baker and Pam Key at The Blaze posted an in depth analysis of the latest video from Project Veritas and found some ethically questionable tactics used in the editing. Glenn responded to the sudden praise on radio this morning, and used it as a teachable moment for the mainstream media.

“There's something that I need to comment on,” Glenn said. “I got a phone call the middle of vacation last week from Scott Baker on The Blaze and he said, ‘Glenn, I'm sorry to bother you but this kind of has to go through your hands,’” Glenn explained.

Scott laid out the story and explained how James O’Keefe’s latest undercover sting video had resulted in NPR executives stepping down. You can read about it here.

“We wanted the raw video because we wanted to make sure that nothing has been taken out of context. I'm not going to Shirley Sherrod someone,” Glenn said.

After receiving the raw footage from O’Keefe and Project Veritas, Scott had found that some sections were taken out of context.

“He said, now, understand the NPR people are still saying despicable things and this still is a scandal, but what the video shows is not what really happened.”

“And I said, well, I do have an agenda against NPR,” Glenn joked. “I hate those guys.”

“And I don't have an agenda against James O'Keefe. But what is the slogan of The Blaze? The truth has no agenda. So just make sure it's the truth one way or another,” Glenn told Scott Baker.

As Glenn says every day, you have to do your homework, and it has been clear from the way the story has been reported by the rest of the media that The Blaze was the only one that followed his advice.

“They never watched the raw video, they never got the raw video,” Stu said. “I mean, you'd think that they would do this sort of homework on all these stories and they don't.”

Glenn knew that the story would be spun as him defending NPR or trying to take down James O’Keefe, but neither is the case. “There was no hesitation. The truth was the truth,” Glenn said.

“[Pam Key] has broken dozens of giant stories that the mainstream media has completely ignored. And it's like all of a sudden when one of them kind of agrees with you, they are going to report it and say how brilliant you are, you're a fantastic journalist, look how great Glenn Beck is all of a sudden. Who is this guy? He's been doing the same thing. You just haven't liked the results of the other ones,” Stu said.

“The truth has no agenda,” Glenn concluded.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?
