John Kerry wants media to ignore the Tea Party

Former presidential hopeful and Massachusetts Senator John Kerry has come out with some disturbing commentary, which Glenn played on radio this morning.

Speaking about the media and its coverage of the Tea Party, Kerry said the following:

“And I have to tell you, I say this to you politely. The media in America has a bigger responsibility than it's exercising today. The media's got to begin to not give equal time or equal balance to an absolutely absurd notion just because somebody asserts it or simply because somebody says something which everybody knows is not factual. It doesn't deserve the same credit as a legitimate idea about what you do. And the problem is everything's put into this tit for tat equal battle and America's losing any sense of what's real, of who's accountable, of who is not accountable, of who's real, who isn't.”

These bone-chilling statements that ultimately tell the media that it is their responsibility to ignore the Tea Party caused quite a stir among Glenn, Pat, and Stu.

PAT: And I'll tell you another thing. I, John Kerry, will be the arbiter of what's real and what isn't. I will tell you whose ideas are factual and whose are totally false. My ideas are factual, and John Boehner's are false. They're nonsense.

STU: It would be so much easier if we just had someone like John Kerry to just tell us.

PAT: Just tell us.

STU: When we should know what side of an argument to have. Why have, waste all the time with having both sides of an argument presented.

PAT: Right, right.

STU: It's just such, it's so arduous.

PAT: This president, this president still will just decide whose opinion you can put on your media shows.

Communist-like calls for censorship are nothing new. As Glenn recalled, the White House already overstepped its boundaries when it attempted to chase him off Fox News by calling for boycott of his program.

GLENN: When the White House went and tried to force Fox to fire me, they had a meeting and they did everything they could to get Fox to fire me. They stood fast. They then had five different presidential advisors intimidate all of my sponsors.

PAT: Boycotts.

GLENN: Boycotts. Never before in American history has that been done. No one in the media reported it. Now we have ‑‑ now we have ‑‑ he's saying this politely. He's saying this politely.

This is just another case of the liberal government exercising its control over the liberal media in attempts to feed the American people the information they want them to know and nothing else. But in America, isn't the media’s job to be a voice for the people, not a mouthpiece for the government?

As Glenn said, when times are tough and the liberal message is unfavorable it becomes easier to “take away a right” than reconsider its unfavorable policies. And that is exactly what John Kerry is seeking to do.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
