Bizarre New Revelations in News Corp Scandal

The American media has spent the last couple of weeks entranced by the phone hacking scandal involving News Corp’s News of the World, which took a bizarre turn today as one of the case’s key witnesses was found dead and Rupert Murdoch was allegedly assaulted. All the while, liberals are rejoicing at what they claim is the impending doom of Fox News.

The man believed to have been responsible for exposing the News of the World scandal was reportedly found dead in his London apartment, as Glenn, Pat, and Stu discussed on radio.

GLENN: Did you hear about the guy from News of the World, the guy who was the whistleblower on the News Corp thing? Find out--I love this story.

PAT: He woke up dead.

GLENN: He woke up dead

PAT: Yeah

GLENN: And they're saying that it's not suspicious. Okay. I'm not saying foul play was involved, but it is suspicious that he's dead. He might have died of a heart attack, natural causes, nobody did anything to him, but it is suspicious that he's dead.

PAT: Do we know what killed him?

GLENN: No, not yet.

To add insult to injury, all sorts of News Corp employees are handing in their letters of resignation – even those who are not being charged!

“I mean, every time you see a new person mentioned as they're being protected, they resign, like, two days later,” Pat said.

“I know. Wall Street Journal, the guy from the Wall Street Journal who is-- and I haven't heard any explanation on why he has resigned,” Glenn responded.

“No. I haven't heard the reason of any of them,” Pat concluded. “Why would the head of Scotland Yard resign? It's just -- the whole thing is so bizarre. There's something going on that we don't obviously know.”

As if this isn’t fishy enough, Rupert Murdoch, C.E.O. of News Corp, was allegedly attacked today during a hearing at the British Parliament. The Blaze has reported that while Murdoch’s son was testifying an unidentified spectator interrupted the hearing, throwing what appeared to be shaving cream at Murdoch.

The Guardian has since reported that the radical group, UK Uncut, may have carried out the assault. Glenn has covered this group and its radical tendencies extensively on television, though the group took to Twitter to plead its innocence (see the Tweet here). Following the incident, the police removed the perpetrator, and the gallery was cleared so testimony could continue.

All the while, the American media continues to triumph in the idea that this international scandal somehow affects Fox News.

STU: There's no one, with the exception of crazy liberals here in America, who are trying to point fingers at Fox News. They will try that, of course.

GLENN: They will. They will use everything they can

PAT: None of this has anything to do with Fox. We're talking about British newspapers.

ABC News had a story trying to connect the News of the World scandal to Fox News. “ABC News is trying to say that this [News of the World scandal] is spreading across the pond,” Pat said.

“We were at Fox for, what, two and a half years? Absolutely nothing even close remotely close to anything like that was ever even -- I've never even heard that whisper in the hallways about anything,” Stu said.

That won’t stop the media from painting this incident as the demise of Fox News. “You could just hear the glee in her [ABC News reporter’s] voice, the hope, the hope that this could affect the licensing of FOX News itself,” Pat said.

As the bizarre layers of this story continue to come undone, one can only hope that this type of journalism did not infiltrate the American media.

“Let me tell you something. If there is something dirty or if they can smear Fox enough to try to get the government to… say we need a whole new system,” Glenn said. “That's what they'll do. They will use this and it will shut down. Let me tell you something: Subscribe to Do it now.”

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."
