Updatedx2: This is what "real reporting" looks like at NBC

Any clip of Glenn wearing a smoking jacket and mocking NBC, MSNBC, and the corruption of the media has to be posted. You just know things are too good when Glenn busts out the pipe.

Original Story (and details):

Remember when Juan Williams was touting about being a “real reporter” last week, launching into a lecture about how real journalists talk to officials and make sure to get stories in context. NBC must not have gotten Juan’s memo about what “real reporting” looks like, because for at least the second time this year they’ve been caught selectively editing videos to smear those that aren’t in lock step with their agenda.

TheBlaze.com reports:

After NBC was caught selectively editing the George Zimmerman police tapes to make it seem like he was volunteering racial information, MSNBC has been caught editing a clip of Mitt Romney to make him seem wildly “out of touch,” when he was really just explaining the difference between the private and public sectors.

In the MSNBC clip, Romney is shown discussing Wawa’s convenience stores like he has never been to one before (presumably because he is “too good” for such an establishment).

Introduced by Andrea Mitchell saying: “I get the feeling–take a look at this– that Mitt Romney has not been to too many Wawa’s along the roadside in Pennsylvania,” Romney says: “I was at Wawa’s, I wanted to order a sandwich. You press the little touch tone keypad, alright, you just touch that, and you know, the sandwich comes at you, touch this, touch this, touch this, go pay the cashier, there’s your sandwich. It’s amazing.”

Momentarily speechless, Mitchell repeats, “It’s amazing,” as her guest breaks into sharp laughter.

Too bad the clip was taken wildly out of context.

Here’s the real clip:

…and here’s MSNBC’s version:

This morning on radio, Glenn had quite a bit to say about GE subsidiary MSNBC.

“Mrs. Alan Greenspan is trying to make this into something that it is clearly not,” Glenn said. “This is what you call “taking things out of context”.

Glenn goes on to explain that Mitchell is trying to make it seem like Romney just happened to stumble into a Wawa all of a sudden – like he’s talking about it for no reason – and stumbled upon a scanner as if he had never seen this technology. None of what she reports on was the point of what he was saying, and you know that if you hear the unedited tape.

“This is the problem with the mainstream media,” Glenn continued. “This is why Mercury, my company, will put them out of business. I am bound and determined to put these people out of business. Not because I'm going to regulate them to death if I ever got a candidate in that actually liked me, which is never going to happen. Not that I'm ever going to go to congress and lobby them to put them out of business. Not that I'm ever going to lead an advertiser boycott or anything like that. We'll put them out of business the same way the scanner puts people who don't use scanners out of business - with the free market and competition. The more you know, the more you can educate your friends about what the media is doing.”

Glenn told listeners that he thinks Mitchell should be suspended. He even gave her the benefit of the doubt – something MSNBC would never do for Glenn – and said that if he had a producer he trusted gave him content that was out of context and he didn’t know, they would be fired.

Later in the show Glenn went on to explain that this is the very reason networks like NBC/MSNBC are struggling so badly, and eventually will go out of business.

“Your days are numbered, NBC. You will be put out of business by something called the free market,” Glenn said. “You better hope your big progressives win, because that's the only chance you have is taking money from the taxpayers and making the government guard your worthless company.”

The lies and deception of the mainstream media plays a big role in one of the 13 topics that Glenn talks about in his new book COWARDS. In chapter 9, 'Change The Media, Change The World', Glenn notes that people aren't just changing the way they consume media, but that they now also have the ability to personalize who they want to get their news from. You are no longer a slave to the "big 3" (NBC, ABC, CBS), which has turned the "big 3" into big-time cowards. Andrea Mitchell's distortion of Romney's comments is just another lame attempt to get what's left of her audience to buy into the MSNBC agenda.

Glenn made some big announcements yesterday about the growth of his company, Mercury Radio Arts, and some big changes for TheBlaze and GBTV, he knows that the reason his companies are able to do such great things is because of his great audience. The only way to get an audience like Glenn’s is by being a network that viewers can trust.

UPDATE: Earlier this afternoon Andrea Mitchell was said to be addressing the out of context video she played and commented on yesterday on MSNBC. This is what she had to say today...

Is this the mainstream media's way of "addressing their mistakes"? MSNBC: Leaning forward? Yes. Leading with their mistakes? No.

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.
