Is college worth it?

Is Glenn anti-college? Last night on TV he had a bunch of current college students and recent graduates to discuss the value of their education versus the financial costs – and one listener wasn’t a fan of Glenn’s advice.

While the caller, Erica, is usually a big Glenn fan, she said, “I think you're giving maybe high school seniors false hope that they can just go out, educate themselves and get a job.”

Glenn pointed out that the majority of the radio staff – including himself – did not have college degrees. He also pointed out the successful entrepreneurs like the founder of JetBlue did not attend college.

“I am not anti‑education by any stretch of the imagination, and I made it very clear last night I am not anti‑college,” Glenn said. “Benjamin Franklin went and got his education as an apprentice. There is such a thing as getting an education other than through the gates of a university that are charging our children $100,000 to $150,000 to $250,000 just to be able to have a certificate that doesn't necessarily mean anything to them.”

“This entire society holds up an Ivy League education as, well, you'll ‑ everything is going to be rosy if you have that. We have a whole generation going into debt, massive, massive debt,” Glenn said.

“We're damning our children to hundreds of thousands of dollars,” Stu added. “Before they work a day in their life and they spend over half the time they're there in recreation.  It's insanity.”

Pat explained that he had originally got a job in radio as a teenager in order to save money for college, but when it was time to go to college he realized he was already doing something he loved and was making a living at it.

“I'm not anti‑education.  I am anti‑massive debt.  I am anti‑giving our children's souls over to these universities.  I am anti‑ this administration making internships almost impossible for businesses to do to be able to have them help the business,” Glenn said.

“We're teaching our high school students to go into college and then get that diploma and that will be a magic ticket to a job and then what happens?  And then they sit around and they say, well, nobody's giving me a job.  Get off your damn ass and create something,” Glenn exclaimed.

Glenn then started discussing his interns, many now employees, who got tremendous experience working for Mercury but also were huge contributors to the company. But when Jon, a Columbia University alum who works for Glenn, said he would leave school early to come work full time for Mercury – Glenn insisted he stay and finish school.

And what about Natasha, a producer for the radio show who also joined after her internship? You can read her story here.

Glenn concluded that education is very important – but there must be renewed respect for trade schools, apprenticeships, and entrepreneurs who choose not to go to college.

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."
