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."

 

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

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."
