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.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?

The corporate media is doing everything it can to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) roasted him for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

During an extremely heated exchange at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Paul challenged Dr. Fauci — who, as the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, oversees research programs at the National Institute of Health — on whether the NIH funded dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Fauci denied the claims, but as Sen. Paul knows, there are documents that prove Dr. Fauci's NIH was funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan biolab before COVID-19 broke out in China.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere presented the proof, because Dr. Fauci's shifting defenses don't change the truth.

Critical race theory: A special brand of evil

wal_172619/Pixabay

Part of what makes it hard for us to challenge the left is that their beliefs are complicated. We don't mean complicated in a positive way. They aren't complicated the way love is complicated. They're complicated because there's no good explanation for them, no basis in reality.

The left cannot pull their heads out of the clouds. They are stuck on romantic ideas, abstract ideas, universal ideas. They talk in theories. They see the world through ideologies. They cannot divorce themselves from their own academic fixations. And — contrary to what they believe and how they act — it's not because leftists are smarter than the rest of us. And studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country. Marx was no different. The Communist Manifesto talks about how the rise of cities "rescued a considerable part of the population from the idiocy of rural life."

Studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country.

Instead of admitting that they're pathological hypocrites, they tell us that we're dumb and tell us to educate ourselves. Okay, so we educate ourselves; we return with a coherent argument. Then they say, "Well, you can't actually understand what you just said unless you understand the work of this other obscure Marxist writer. So educate yourselves more."

It's basically the "No True Scotsman" fallacy, the idea that when you point out a flaw in someone's argument, they say, "Well, that's a bad example."

After a while, it becomes obvious that there is no final destination for their bread-crumb trail. Everything they say is based on something that somebody else said, which is based on something somebody else said.

Take critical race theory. We're sure you've noticed by now that it is not evidence-based — at all. It is not, as academics say, a quantitative method. It doesn't use objective facts and data to arrive at conclusions. Probably because most of those conclusions don't have any basis in reality.

Critical race theory is based on feelings. These feelings are based on theories that are also based on feelings.

We wanted to trace the history of critical race theory back to the point where its special brand of evil began. What allowed it to become the toxic, racist monster that it is today?

Later, we'll tell you about some of the snobs who created critical theory, which laid the groundwork for CRT. But if you follow the bread-crumb trail from their ideas, you wind up with Marxism.

For years, the staff has devoted a lot of time to researching Marxism. We have read a lot of Marx and Marxist writing. It's part of our promise to you to be as informed as possible, so that you know where to go for answers; so that you know what to say when your back is up against the wall. What happens when we take the bread-crumb trail back farther, past Marxism? What is it based on?

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism.

It's actually based on the work of one of the most important philosophers in human history, a 19th-century German philosopher named Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel.

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism. And, as you'll see in just a bit, if we look at Hegel's actual ideas, it's obvious that Marx completely misrepresented them in order to confirm his own fantasies.

So, in a way, that's where the bread-crumb trail ends: With Marx's misrepresentation of an incredibly important, incredibly useful philosophy, a philosophy that's actually pretty conservative.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.
