Media reacts to Glenn's 'warmly received' Knesset speech

What are the media outlets saying about Glenn's speech to the Knesset, the legislative body in Israel? Well, despite the protests by some leftist bloggers, the mainstream media has focused heavily on the warm reception Glenn's speech.

CNN Reports:

Outspoken American TV and radio personality Glenn Beck found a friendly audience Monday in the Israeli Parliament as he spoke to a group on how Israel can improve its international image.

....

But he was serious when he said, "Here is the truth (about the) Israeli -Palestinian conflict -- at the ruling class, (the conflict) is about the destruction of Israel and about the end of the Western way of life, period."

Beck spoke as a guest of the Knesset's Committee on Immigration, Absorption, and Diaspora Affairs. In addition to mostly right-wing Knesset members, the committee room was packed with guests who were strong Glenn Beck fans, applauding enthusiastically as he entered the room.

....

One Knesset member from the centrist Atzmatut party who came to thank Beck was Einat Wilf. When asked about having the controversial talker at Israel's parliament, she responded, "These days we need all the help we can get."

"I don't think anyone can contest that Glenn Beck has the ability to reach tens of millions of people and to convince them, and as Israel finds itself in an intellectual battle for its own story, as Zionism continues to be under attack, we need to understand how to make sure that our truth is heard ... and anyone who can help us with that is more than welcome," Wilf said.

TIME reports:

The topic of the day was attacks on Israel's "legitimacy," and whatever suggestions Beck might have on getting Israel's message out to a world that seems less and less inclined to listen.  The star offered more reassurance than advice, emphasizing that Israel is doing well in what was the very first country to recognize it after independence.

....

He found himself among friends. Legislator after legislator thanked him, both in English and in Hebrew. Outside, an ultra-orthodox businessman hired a crane to hoist a banner over the Knesset lawn. "Thank you, Glenn Beck," it said, above the signature, "The Jewish Nation."  The Hebrew lettering over both read: "The Left is Afraid and Rightly So" with three exclamation points.

Beck, for his part, began by apologizing to the committee for not wearing a tie, and then proceeding with his presentation, arguing that “politics as we know it is over” and that America had much to learn from Israel. “The media is skewed [in America],” he joked, “I thought you could only cook your food over a burning bus.” He went on to explain the American reaction to 9/11 and the “normalcy bias” that made Americans more vulnerable to ignore attacks, and quoted the Book of Ruth to express his solidarity with the Israeli people: “Where you go, I will go; where you lodge, I will lodge; your people are my people; your God is my God; where you die, I will die.”

The Jerusalem Post wrote:

Conservative pundit Glenn Beck was met with praise from coalition and opposition MKs, when he addressed the Knesset Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Affairs committee on Monday, but some seemed to think he was not right-wing enough when it comes to Israel.

More than one MK spoke out against a Palestinian state in the committee meeting, but Beck told Channel 10 news later that evening that he would not oppose such a state.

"I'm not against a Palestinian state. I'm not here for a political solution," he said. "There's something bigger than politics here. I don't think in my lifetime I've seen a more clear definition of evil that has been dismissed," he added, referring to the massacre of the Fogel family in Itamar earlier this year.

....

During the meeting, Beck leaned over and whispered to his assistant: "Can you believe how much God plays a role here?"

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
