Glenn: Media focuses too much on old Obama tape, not enough on Libya


Glenn spent the Tuesday's monologue on his TV show addressing in detail some of the points he originally brought up on radio. Check out the monologue below and see why Glenn thinks we all need to be asking the very important question: Why?

Original Story

Glenn questioned the wisdom of many on the right who are pushing the latest ‘bombshell’ Obama tape which revealed little new information if any at all. Obama’s on tape explaining why he wants to raise energy prices and that didn’t work - why would this tape change people’s minds?

"I can't take that speech. When the speech tape (aired) I looked at Stu, and said why? Why would you do that? With everything that's going on. All of these important stories - why would you release that tape? Why is that important? Libya. It's like you're working for the administration. Libya. Why?"

Glenn warned that if the media doesn't start hammering Libya, the Middle East, and foreign policy then the story would fade away. Hammering Obama on issues that he weathered in the 2008 election will not help defeat him this election.

"You've got three weeks gang. They're not going to do it. This (Libya) is going to be erased or buried."

Stu pointed out that the State Department has now pulled all government personnel out of Benghazi, possibly ending any hopes of a real investigation into what happened.

"How is it we haven't had anybody over there. Again press, the question is why? Why was our ambassador there? Why was he alone? Why didn't he have his security personnel? Why? Why did he warn? Why did everyone say 'It's dangerous. It's happening.' They begged - you did nothing. Why? What are you hiding in Benghazi? Why can't the F.B.I. go investigate? Why did you say that there was an investigation going on and you can't comment on it until the investigation is completed - and there is no investigation! Why? That's the question that a two-year-old asks, and yet our press will not ask. Why?," Glenn said.

"It's crazy. It's not just this. It's everything. It's Holder. It's Eric Holder in Fast and Furious. Why? Why? Why, why, why, why? Why is this happening? It's crazy," he said.

Glenn also warned against people solely focusing on the House and Senate. He said that this President has been bypassing Congress at every opportunity and will continue to push his agenda through.


Is this what inclusivity and tolerance look like? Fox News host Tomi Lahren was at a weekend brunch with her mom in Minnesota when other patrons started yelling obscenities and harassing her. After a confrontation, someone threw a drink at her, the moment captured on video for social media.

On today's show, Pat and Jeffy talked about this uncomfortable moment and why it shows that supposedly “tolerant" liberals have to resort to physical violence in response to ideas they don't like.

President Donald Trump has done a remarkable job of keeping his campaign promises so far. From pulling the US from the Iran Deal and Paris Climate Accord to moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem, the president has followed through on his campaign trail vows.

“It's quite remarkable. I don't know if anybody remembers, but I was the guy who was saying he's not gonna do any of those things," joked Glenn on “The News and Why it Matters," adding, “He has taken massive steps, massive movement or completed each of those promises … I am blown away."

Rapper Kendrick Lamar asked a fan to come onstage and sing with him, only to condemn her when she failed to censor all of the song's frequent mentions of the “n-word" while singing along.

“I am so sorry," she apologized when Lamar pointed out that she needed to “bleep" that word. “I'm used to singing it like you wrote it." She was booed at by the crowd of people, many screaming “f*** you" after her mistake.

On Tuesday's show, Pat and Jeffy watched the clip and talked about some of the Twitter reactions.

“This is ridiculous," Pat said. “The situation with this word has become so ludicrous."

What happened?

MSNBC's Katy Tur didn't bother to hide her pro-gun control bias in an interview with Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton in the wake of the Santa Fe High School killings.

What did she ask?

As Pat pointed out while sitting in for Glenn on today's show, Tur tried to “badger" Paxton into vowing that he would push for a magical fix that will make schools “100 percent safe." She found it “just wild" that the Texas attorney general couldn't promise that schools will ever be completely, totally safe.

“Can you promise kids in Texas today that they're safe to go to school?" Tur pressured Paxton.

“I don't think there's any way to say that we're ever 100 percent safe," the attorney general responded.

What solutions did the AG offer?

“We've got a long way to go," Paxton said. He listed potential solutions to improve school safety, including installing security officers and training administrators and teachers to carry a gun.

Pat's take:

“Unbelievable," Pat said on today's show. “Nobody can promise [100 percent safety]."
