Media Matters embarrasses themselves yet again

Not to long ago, Glenn talked about the emerging political pundit training camp that Media Matters has been running in order to train some empty-headed progressive puppets how to effectively communicate their message. You can find graduates of these programs all over MSNBC, and one or two even landed their own show (don’t worry, no one else has seen The Ed Show either). The head of this program has even gone on record recently discussing why such an astroturf movement is necessary. Glenn gave his reaction on radio this morning.

For the comments from Eric Burns, courtesy of The Blaze, watch below:

Burns said, “[The right] seems to have a very good star generating system. You know, they find their stars of the moment and they pump them up and so they become, you know -- Glenn Beck was working out of a little nickel and dime shop somewhere in the southwest and suddenly he's everywhere.”

Not quite.

“That's Ed Schultz,” Glenn said. “Ed Schultz was working literally in Fargo, North Dakota. Now all of the sudden he's on television and that's what they do.”

Glenn, on the other hand, was working out of a number one station when he was sixteen., so it wasn’t exactly a nickel and dime place.

“ Then all of the sudden, in 30 years, you're starting to see him places. Who does that, other than everyone who's ever been famous? That's so weird!” Pat joked.

“You went from a small radio station to a lot of radio stations in 30 years! What is the right doing?! How do they plan so well?” Stu added.

“Can I tell you something? We've been working on a new plan and in 40 years from now, they are toast!” Glenn said.

“The right, what, we all graduated from some right think tank? Who? Who went to any think tank that spawned all these talk show hosts? Anybody? Rush Limbaugh started in Kansas City with the Chiefs, went to Sacramento, did local radio, became successful there. They put him on nationally. I mean, that's how everyone of us has come up through the ranks.”

Both Glenn and Stu felt like the Media Matters strategy is indicative of the entire progressive mindset. It must be a huge conspiracy when someone achieves a level of success, so they must be backed by the evil Koch Brothers or some other shadowy organization, right? Not so much.

On the other hand, a George Soros funded organization has said – with no intention of hiding it – that they are manufacturing people to compete with successful broadcasters on the right.

Sadly, The Ed Show shows how much of an epic failure their program has been so far.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
