New Tone? Olbermann wishes S.E. Cupp was never born

Yesterday, former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann made a transparent bid for relevancy by making some controversial comments about conservative commentator and Insider Extreme host S.E. Cupp. Olbermann wrote that S.E. Cupp is “the perfect demonstration of the necessity of the work Planned Parenthood does”. While Glenn was off radio for a doctor’s appointment, Pat and Stu interviewed S.E. about Olbermann’s Twitter remarks on radio this morning.

The Blaze has been covering Olbermann’s remarks. You can read their story here.

Stu said, “[Olbermann’s] making right now millions and millions of dollars to do nothing. I mean, the guy was paid out on his contract. He's got millions and millions of dollars literally to sit at home.”

“[NBC] would rather just not have him at the office and they are paying him millions of dollars to do so. And he's sitting there obsessively tweeting back to individual people and it's just begging for attention,” Stu added.

While Glenn is currently undergoing his own, gradual transition off of FOX News, Stu hoped “we don’t become this desperate.”

Pat was optimistic that their show wouldn’t sink to the same despicable level of Keith Olbermann. “ I can't imagine ever being as desperate as Keith Olbermann to be saying, ‘Yeah, it would be nice, wouldn't it, if all Democrats were aborted.  That would be great if no Democrats existed on this planet.’”

The guys then brought on S.E. Cupp to talk about the controversial statements Olbermann made about her.

“Someone alerted me to [the remarks].  I'm traveling.  I'm in Ohio. And so I was not regularly checking for Keith Olbermann tweets yesterday. But someone alerted me to it and I actually, I mean, it's weird because I don't recall ever turning down one of his sexual advances.  So I don't know what his beef with me is,” she joked.

“And I can joke. You have to joke about this kind of stuff, you know, in this business,” she said.

But Cupp certainly didn’t find his remarks to be funny at all. While she is used to getting criticism for her beliefs, “when you get death threats and hate mail, you never get used to hearing that someone wishes you were dead.”

“It never becomes something you just say, oh, no big deal.  It just doesn't, it doesn't get that way.”

“But the nice way, the nice way to look at this, S. E., is that not that he wanted you dead,” Pat joked. “Just that he never wanted you to exist in the first place.”

Stu asked what S.E. felt about the implication that her stance on Planned Parenthood made her anti-women.

“There's so much hypocrisy in here,” S.E. said.  For one, abortion is incredibly important and serious and sensitive issue to many women on both sides of the issue. And to use it as a cheap punch line I think really undermines the seriousness of the topic.”

“On another level, of course, no one is going to be surprised to learn that Keith Olbermann is incredibly misogynistic and has huge problems with women,” she added.

“And then, of course, lastly, to sort of invoke a call for tolerance and then spew that kind of bile in a public forum, I just, I can't imagine how his employer is going to defend him on that.  I mean, it's no wonder he's been fired from every single job he's had,” she said.

“This is not a one‑time incident with him getting booted from MSNBC,” Stu said. Stu also pointed out that Olbermann had pretty good ratings compared to the rest of MSNBC, but he was “hated by everyone who’s ever worked with him.”

S.E. said, “I really think it speaks to the kind of person he is, his character.  That's a line that I would imagine is very difficult for most people to cross.  He seems to do it alacrity and so regularly and so flippantly that I can't even imagine what goes on in his mind, what's happening in there.”

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."
