TriBeCa Film Festival to award Glenn as Disruptive Innovator of the Year

Glenn's basketball skills may have proved to be disappointing, but he is being recognized by a prestigious event that takes place in New York City every year: the TriBeCa Film Festival.

No, this is not a parody post. Later this month, Glenn will be awarded the TriBeCa Film Festival's Disruptive Innovator of the Year award. Pretty impressive, right?

"The TriBeCa Film Festival is huge," Pat noted. "Who have been some of the other disruptive winners?"

This year, the other disruptive innovator is the guy who did Gangnam Style. Among last year's winners was Justin Bieber, who won the award for his use of social media.

"You are changing the way things are done," Stu explained of the award. "You're disrupting the normal processes with innovation."

"With innovation…so you're not being a revolutionary and destroying other people. You're disrupting the normal flow because you've innovated and made something better. And so they believe that we may change television and the way it's being done because we are disrupting the big studios and the big television networks, we're disrupting through our innovation and so the TriBeCa film festival is giving me that award," Glenn added.

If you're thinking, "giving Glenn Beck an award at the TriBeCa Film Festival can't be the most popular thing they've ever done," you'd be right.

Glenn explained that they called him before giving the award because it was going to be controversial. The award is called the Charles Darwin Award, so they thought Glenn might get too much flack.

"I'm like, I don't really care. Sure, I mean, I think it's great. I'm honored. The reason why it's the Charles Darwin Award is because survival of the fittest.  I believe in the survival of the fittest," Glenn said.

"At least in business," Stu responded.

Glenn added that he believes in survival of the fittest in business and humans, but he also believes in taking care of the elderly, the handicapped, and those who can't help themselves. But what's ironic is that the people who claim to believe in evolution so much, don't practice survival of the fittest — they're opposed to it, at least in practice.

"I don't believe that we just keep passing you in grade after grade after grade," Glenn said.

He went on to add that the failing banks should be allowed to fail. If people don't feel pain in their own lives or when they're businesses aren't doing well, no one will ever learn — people will not learn from their mistakes.

If Glenn had never been allowed to fail, he wouldn't be in the position he is now to receive this award.

"So thank you TriBeCa Film Festival," Glenn said. "...It's an honor, and I appreciate it."

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
