Unbelievable BBC interview sees journalist blindside Mayor of London with hard hitting questions

TheBlaze posted one of the most awkward and hard hitting interviews between the Mayor of London Boris Johnson and journalist Andrew Marr. The hard hitting and at times awkward conversation was a textbook example of what can happen when the press decides to do its job and actually ask the tough questions. But is it also an example of how quickly the media can target and destroy someone who gets out of line? Glenn played the interview and reacted on radio this morning.

"What has this guy done why is he being dismissed by the BBC? Remember, that's government news. What has he done behind-the-scenes," Glenn asked.

Watch the interview below:

TheBlaze reports:

To begin, Johnson, a former journalist, was questioned for purportedly making up quotes during his past career.

“The Times let you go after you made up a quote. Why did you make up a quote?,” Mair asked.

“Well, again, these are big terms, but what happened was — I can tell you the whole thing — I mean, it was — do, do — are you sure your viewers wouldn’t want to hear more –,” the mayor responded, clearly uncomfortable by the question and calling the quote debacle a ”long and lamentable story.”

The host also took Johnson to task over lying to his political party about an affair he apparently had. Additionally, the host asked about a phone call in which a friend described a potential plan to physically assault a journalist.

While being questioned, Johnson was overtly uncomfortable and irritated.

“What does that say about you, Boris Johnson, making up quotes, lying to your party leader, wanting to be part of someone being physically assaulted,” Mair asked. “You’re a nasty piece of work, aren’t you?”

Rather than admit fault, the mayor said he would dispute the points raised against him.

"You do not take down a government official if you're being paid by the government. So what did this guy do to all of a sudden get the 'BBC'," Glenn said.

You watch because the more controlled the government gets over things, when you see somebody destroyed, and, you know, look we've seen it before. But they're obvious. Most people don't ask what happened to that guy? What happened to that guy? Where did he go? They've been against them from the very beginning. But you're about to see people who will be destroyed," Glenn said.

"You watch, people who have been fine with the media in the past, they're going to unleash."

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
