Why won’t the media talk about Saudi national?

In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing the media flushed its credibility down the toilet when it valued breaking information first over reporting the facts. Remember CNN’s John King proclaiming a ‘dark skinned’ man had been arrested? Or the misinformation about the number of people killed and injured?

The federal government, meanwhile, took political correctness to a whole new level – initially refraining from calling the attack ‘terrorism’ and refusing to acknowledge the Tsarnaev brothers’ Muslim ties.

The incompetence has spilled over into week two of the investigation. Since TheBlaze broke the story of the Saudi national, Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, who was initially considered a ‘person of interest’ in the Marathon bombing investigation before later being downgraded to merely a ‘witness,’ the media has been silent, while the government has been in denial.

As TheBlaze reported, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano finally admitted (kind of) the Saudi was in fact placed on a watch list, but her statement was inconsistent at best:

NAPOLITANO: He was not on a watch list. What happened is — this student was, really when you back it out, he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. He was never a subject. He was never even really a person of interest. Because he was being interviewed, he was at that point put on a watch list, and then when it was quickly determined he had nothing to do with the bombing, the watch listing status was removed.

“We have like 10 sources on this,” Glenn said on radio this morning of TheBlaze’s investigation.

“It is amazing,” Pat added. “All of the media sources who just blindly believe what Janet Napolitano has said, when what Janet Napolitano has said has changed almost every day.”

“Journalists, you shouldn’t trust the Bush Administration, and you shouldn’t trust this guy’s administration. You shouldn’t trust them,” Glenn said. “That doesn’t mean you don’t go after them all the time. It means that you approach everything with a healthy does of skepticism.”

The art of investigative reporting has clearly been lost, if mainstream news outlets are now willing to take the government at its word on cases as sensitive as this.

“They just keep saying, ‘Well, I called the government and they said they just totally screwed up and put a random Saudi on the watch list. Oops,’” Stu joked.

And if the government really is just putting random Saudi Arabians on terror watch lists because they are Saudi Arabian and, therefore, a threat, the government is admitting racism!

“We’re supposed to be like, ‘Oh, they’re just racist. Put all the Saudis on the watch list. It’s all right. There’s nothing there. They just put random Saudis on the terror list whenever they interview them,’” Stu said.

“We pointed that out before. Nobody on the right is even taking this approach. Humiliate them for their racism. They don’t want to be called racist, so go for it,” Glenn explained. “If that’s their answer, if you believe what they are saying, then that’s racist.”

Glenn went on to explain that he knows many respected journalists at the major networks who put together reports on this story, only to be told that their stories would not be published or brought to air.

“What kills me is that they are now trying to make this into a conspiracy theory,” Glenn said. “People are like, ‘He has no facts.’ No, I have the documentation. I have the sources. We have as much as Woodward and Bernstein had. We have the sources.”

“Its pretty amazing how much they’ll dismiss,” Pat responded.

“In the end you’ll destroy yourselves. I just hope you don’t destroy our country at the same time,” Glenn said of the media. “We are in it for America. Now is there a single person out there that is also in it for America? ‘Well, we called the DHS already. The Department of Homeland Security said there is nothing to worry about.’ Oh, okay, whoo. You guys should get a nap in. That sounds like a tough day of investigative reporting.”

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he's all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in "public service," the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.

Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Political Elite," and to break downs how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.

"It's a major problem for Bernie Sanders," Schweizer said. "He's turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family."

"Isn't that what always happens?" Glenn asked. "I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving."

"Yes, that's exactly right," agreed Schweizer. "It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it's simply not true."

By now you've probably heard all about former Vice President Joe Biden's alleged corruption in Ukraine with his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. But as it turns out, the Biden family's dubious dealings weren't limited to Ukraine, but extended to China as well.

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:
