Congratulations Ed Schultz! We knew MSNBC wouldn't give up on you

Here at the Glenn Beck Program, we think it's important to recognize success. When someone does a good job, they deserve to have it pointed out. So we would like to take the opportunity to celebrate Ed Schultz's move from the dead-end, ratings black hole known as MSNBC primetime and has graduated to the BIG TIME: MSNBC's expanded weekend line-up. Congrats, Ed.

Here's what the big guy had to say:

And in the big finish tonight, a big personal and professional announcement. MSNBC will be expanding its weekend programming and this opens a big opportunity for “The Ed Show” and my brand. I will be leaving this time slot at 8 pm ET and moving to Saturday and Sunday from 5 to 7 pm.

I raised my hand for this assignment for a number of personal and professional reasons. My fight on “The Ed Show” has been for the workers and the middle class. This new time slot will give me the opportunity to produce and focus on stories that I care about and are important to American families and American workers.

"Isn't that truth?  You can't get to those people week nights in primetime. You only hit them on the Saturday and Sunday nights.  That's when the real audiences, the much much smaller audience, you can connect with them better," Pat said.

Using Ed's mind-bending revelation that a smaller audience in a worse time slot is somehow better, Glenn couldn't believe how his own personal career had actually been going backwards. He was really at his peak when he started off doing late nights on a local station, not now when he's nationally syndicated in a prime time slot.

"Obviously it's a huge step in your career to go from prime time during the week to the weekend.  He wants the intimate venue of weekends," Stu said.

And, of course, there is the huge benefit that this move does for the Ed Schultz brand...whatever that is.

What makes this completely voluntary promotion such a huge story, however, was how rumors of Ed Schultz being booted from MSNBC's prime time lineup were vehemently shot down by the man himself just a few months ago.

Remember when Ed said this?

Gosh, there's a lot going on, isn't there? (laughs) Ed Schultz being replaced at 8 p.m., not so fast! I just want, here's the first thing I want to say -- Brian Stelter, is that his name? Yeah, S-T-E-L-T-E-R. He's never talked to me. And if he were to talk to me, I would tell him that I have overperformed in my time period for the third quarter and on my way to do that in the fourth quarter of this year, which puts me in bonus territory. You know, money? I mean, that's how well we're doing at 8 o'clock. And so I, I, I have never interviewed with the guy, he's never called me or asked me anything. I see that Phil Griffin, the president of MSNBC, has put out a statement saying that, uh, you know, we're, we're OK!

See, Phil Griffin is clearly so "OK" with the Ed Schultz brand that he's allowed Ed to take this amazing, wonderful, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to move to the weekends.

We bet Brian Stelter, one of the biggest names in media reporting, is feeling extra embarrassed today about his article. Sure, he was right about Ed leaving 8pm - but he totally missed the real story! He must have just been blinded by the all-encompassing, omnipresent Ed Schultz brand.

Sorry you're haters gotta hate there Ed. You really showed them.

Congratulations.

We'd like to just take a minute and remember some of the highlights of Ed's career:

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
