Glenn Beck is a thief! Or something...

A small amount of controversy surrounded Glenn this morning when a conservative website posted an “exclusive” story accusing Glenn of not properly attributing sources for stories he reported on TV. Glenn responded to the article on radio this morning, pointed out some glaring inaccuracies and falsehoods, and interviewed one of the “victims”, Glenn’s friend (and Blaze writer) Mike Opelka.

One of the articles main accusations is that Glenn stole the slogan “The Truth Has No Agenda” from Blaze write Mike Opelka. This isn’t exactly true. In order to prove his innocence, Glenn brought Opelka on to clear up the situation.

“A lot of people don't know this, but I was the best man at your wedding,” Glenn said.

Opelka joked that saying Glenn stole from him would be like saying someone stole a car from a dealership after giving them the full money for it. It just didn’t happen.

“I buy 'The Truth Has No Agenda' from you. I hire you to work for me,” Glenn said.

“We sat in a conference in March of 1990 with Michael Opelka putting together an FM morning show. We were stealing stuff from him back then,” Pat joked.

“I do have obligations to you to turn out some sort of work product on a regular daily basis,” Opelka joked.

The truth of the matter is that Glenn and Opelka obviously have a close relationship and a business relationship, and Glenn paid Opelka for the slogan.

But why would this conservative website want to attack Glenn and his credibility? Could it be because The Blaze analyzed and debunked a story they reported on that was full of holes? “I want to make sure everyone is aware, this 100% is not an attempt at revenge with the website that came up with the James O'Keefe web story,” Stu joked. “Not transparent, guys.”

“They're not upset that we ruined their cute little story,” Stu added.

“I want you to know that if I have ever not attributed somebody, it is not that I didn't intend to. We're not scrubbing videos. This is the most ridiculous charge I ever heard. If I have not attributed somebody, I apologize for that,” Glenn said, noting that thousands of hours of broadcast each day may result in some misses.

“And the other thing that I think needs to be said and I think we're all thinking of it is, wow, wow, it must have really hurt when we didn't take the story from James O'Keefe because we thought it had holes all through it and then when it was run, we spoke out against it.” (You can read The Blaze analysis/possible motivation for accusations here).

“Now to follow up that bad NPR piece, they run another piece full of holes.”

The Blaze posted the video below, which is a small sample of all the times Glenn has properly sourced bloggers and news sites, including the ones who voiced discontent in the article.

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."
