Glenn: 'NBC has crossed the line' with misleading coverage to support progressive agenda

The mainstream media here in America has been on the decline for quite some time. When was the last time anyone turned on the news and trusted the anchor to give you the truth without an agenda? It happens all the time - most of the anchors on the nightly news are operating with some kind of message or agenda they are trying to shove down the throats of the American people. But no network or company has sunk to the ethical lows of NBC and MSNBC, whose reporters are flat out lying and distorting facts and audio tapes. Are they looking for ratings? If so, it's a failing strategy considering FOX News remains the number one force in cable news and conservatives like Glenn outshine progressive voices across all multimedia platforms wherever they appear. Are they just shilling for the President and the progressive administration because they don't know any better? Whatever the case, they've made it clear they have no interest in telling the truth and have decided to just flat out lie. Glenn ran through their ugly, hateful, misleading, hypocritical track record today on radio.

"NBC has crossed the line. You have not heard me say this ever before. NBC has crossed the line and they are burning the bridge behind them," Glenn said. "You have no credibility at all. The ratings are going to tank on NBC. Because Americans are fair."

Glenn said that MSNBC has been headed down this road of non-reporting for a while, but said things are now shifting into high gear. For example, when news breaks that Obama's dad was not tortured by the British as he claimed in his memoirs, but does MSNBC report on that? No, instead their weekend anchor and commentator Melissa Harris-Perry says that African American men displaying patriotism post-9/11 (aka wearing NYPD hats in solidarity with those who lost their lives saving others) is a form of PTSD!

"That's one of the most racist things I've ever heard.  As if we're not supposed to be proud of the actions of the NYPD.  Think about what they did!  Are you kidding me? " Glenn said.

Meanwhile, Martin Bashir continues to show an anti-religion undertone when attacking Mitt Romney. For example, he allowed his guest Frank Schaeffer to attack both Mormonism and Islamism when Schaeffer said, "Looking at the religious right you have to balance their hatreds.  Do they hate the Mormonism of Mitt Romney more than they hate the pretended Islamic faith quote/unquote of the president?"

""Got it?  That's just anti‑religion.  That's not anti‑Mormon.  That's anti‑religion.  That's anti‑God.  Does the right hate Mormonism more than Obama's supposed Muslimism?  Wow."

"Only NBC is referring to Barack Obama constantly as a Muslim.  Only NBC.  Why are you guys keeping that alive?  I don't know anybody who's rational that believes that he's a Muslim.  I don't think there's anybody rational that believes he believes in anything but Barack Obama.  If there's a God, it's in his pants.  It's in his suit.  It sits behind his desk.  It wears its shoes.  His God is Barack Obama.  Why are you sleeping that lie alive?  How does that benefit your cause?" Glenn said.

But Bashir joined in on the attacks by reading an op-ed by a Mormon willing to throw Romney under the bus:

"Let me read you something from a New York Times editorial this week.  It's written by David Mason, a Mormon professor, and I'm quoting him:  'I suspect that Mr. Romney is such a typical politician that should he occupy the Oval Office, he'll studiously avoid the appearance of being anything but a WASP.  Mormons are certainly Christians enough to know how to spitefully abuse their power'," Bashir said.

Glenn noted that this is MSNBC's agenda: Find the one Republican or Mormon or whatever else group they are attacking to be complicit in their agenda and give them the ability to say 'it's not us saying'. Sadly, when you take that as a whole (Joe Scarborough loves to throw his 'fellow' Republicans under the bus) you can see their patterns emerge.

And then there is Lawrence O'Donnell, who attacked the Romney's for claiming the equestrian sport of dressage helped Ann Romney with her multiple sclerosis.

"Now, Mitt Romney has always told the story of the family's entry into the breathtakingly so‑called sport of dressage as a therapeutic option for Ann Romney's multiple sclerosis," O'Donnell said.

O'Donnell continued, "There are a lot of things you can do to try to deal with MS.  But come on, dressage does not appear in any of the more traditional courses of treatment."

But did Mitt Romney claim it was a form of treatment? No.

Mitt Romeny said, "I guess it's the sport of dressage.  Not many people are familiar with it, but something for which she has a passion.  And frankly her getting back on a horse after she was diagnosed with MS was able, she's convinced, to help her regenerate her strength and renew that vigor."

"It's where her passion is, and putting her back on her horse means something to her," Glenn said. "Her mental attitude is everything.  I'm sorry, doctor, tax attorney, actor, writer, socialist, commentator Larry O'Donnell.  Larry knows that there's many things that you can do to treat MS.  He's a doctor, of course.  He played a doctor on TV, or something, or he's written a line about a doctor or something.  I didn't hear that Romney was saying here that dressage appears as any of the more traditional treatments for MS.  What America heard, if they would have been listening, is that Ann felt like it helped her."

"The economy is on fire.  The country is facing more problems than we have faced possibly, possibly since the Civil War, at least since the 1960s.  We're charting the course for the next generation in the next six months.  Whoever is president will be the one that charts the course for the next generation, and that's why it comes back to Andrea Mitchell," Glenn said.

"Andrea Mitchell flat‑out smeared Mitt Romney on Monday with a heavily edited tape.  This isn't the first time they've done this.  A heavily edited tape."

"If she worked for me, she would have been fired.  If she would have done it to Barack Obama, she would have been fired.  And everyone in the chain of command would have been fired."

And did she apologize? No. She only said, "We didn't get a chance to play that.  So here it is now."

Wow, after the damage was done she threw the full tape out there in the most half hearted way imaginable.

"They completely edited a tape, spun it in a complete opposite direction, and that's your apology.  No apologies.  Do not watch or support NBC in the any way, shape or form if you believe in the truth.  That's my family.  I am not for boycotts, but I am also not for editing people's words for a political agenda.  And they've done it with Zimmerman and it was dangerous.  And they're doing it now with a guy who could be president, and it's dangerous.  Enough, NBC.  Send a message to NBC.  Enough."

 

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."
