The hilarious media/blog coverage of Glenn's Fox News announcement

Did you know that Good Morning America has an investigative reporting division? Well apparently they do! And they’re investigating why Glenn is transitioning off his daily TV show on FOX (and still producing specials and other television projects for FOX). While the media is busy inventing all kinds of hilarious explanations, Glenn gave his first comments on radio since news of the announcement broke yesterday.

“I have wanted to talk to you about things for months, months. And there are things that I still want to talk to you about that I cannot today and will not today,” Glenn said.

While there are some things that Glenn cannot address, he was able to comment on the announcement that he would be leaving his daily FOX News show.

Glenn said that he didn’t think this move would surprise many of his loyal fans at all. “I apologize if I did shock you.  I walked out of the studio yesterday and the boys left the Fourth Hour and everybody was called into the office at 12:00 for a meeting and I had to announce to the staff what was going on.  Nobody on my staff was surprised at all.”

“I'm sorry if I surprised you yesterday.  I just assumed that you hear me when I say things like for the last year prepare for a time when I will not be there to connect all of these dots for you.  When I tell you that there are other things that I am working on and doing.”

“When you talk about moving to other states where you couldn't do Fox News,” Pat joked.

“I will tell you this.  That I'm not concerned about us because when somebody asked me last night, what are your listeners going to think?  I said, what are my listeners going to think?  The truth.  You know, they'll deal with it and they'll know what the truth is,” Glenn said.

While Glenn can’t announce all the details of his new direction, the media is having a field day trying to come up with explanations for his career move.

“I just read Good Morning America investigates end of Glenn Beck show on Fox News, a marriage that went sour?  They investigated? Wow. I didn't get a phone call from them,” Glenn joked on radio this morning.

So what are they saying?

“Advertisers fleeing,” a GMA host said.

Is that true?

While some sad blogger may try and claim that they have gotten 300 to 400 companies to boycott the show, most of those companies never advertised on the show to begin with. “Nobody has 400 advertisers,” Pat said.

“I'm sorry to interrupt and I don't want to ruin your vibe.  But Tab soda just pulled their advertising,” Stu joked.

Keep in mind that the same people saying they got hundreds of advertisers to boycott Glenn are the same ones lied about the radio show having less than 400 affiliates. You can read about that lie here.

“Last night, his show was filled with visions of global doom,” the host continued.

Of course, it’s ridiculous to think that there just might be bad things going on around the world. Revolutions are sweeping the Middle East, Japan has been rocked by earthquakes, and labor leaders have laid out a plan to collapse the banks.

“I believe we're heading into deep and treacherous waters,” Glenn said.

“I will tell you that I have wrestled with this for over a year, and if you really do listen, you know.  I talked about this before 8/28 and I have really wrestled with it.”

“As I got closer to this day, I read a lot of Churchill.  In fact, I have been reading old newspapers from the 1930s about Churchill.  Have no fear.  The reason why I named The Blaze is because lies and distortion is an impurity and the refiner's fire burns all those impurities out.  If you have built an empire on impurities, you're toast,” Glenn said.

“Churchill was practically run out of town because he would not stop saying the Germans are building warplanes everyone distanced themselves from him.  Everyone.  In the end, everyone ran to Churchill.  Why?  Because he was the only one who had the spine to say it.”

“I got news for you.  I ain't going home and nobody's run me out of town.”

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."
