These are the most trusted people in America?

Reader’s Digest put out its annual list of the “100 Most Trusted People in America” based on feedback from over 1,000 randomly surveyed people. The list seeks to “discover which individuals and the ideals they represent have earned our confidence” this year.

“Here's something,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Now, this is coming from Reader's Digest. So I mean, you know, like you're going to put any stock in Reader's Digest at this point. Reader's Digest just put a new poll out: 100 Most Trusted People in America. Hear me: Most trusted people in America, the 100.”

So who is the most trusted person in America today? Well, none other than Tom Hanks.

Yes, that’s right. Tom Hanks is considered the most trustworthy person in the United States.

And who’s number two on the list? Naturally, its Tom Hanks’ co-star in the critically panned movie Extremely Loud, Incredibly Close, Sandra Bullock.

“I don't trust Sandra Bullock that it's going to be a good movie,” Glenn joked. “For every The Blind Side, there is a Speed 2.”

Moving down the list, the Hollywood love affair continues with Denzel Washington coming in at number three and Meryl Streep at number four.

“I mean, who did they call,” Glenn asked. “Only Hollywood agents?”

“Look. I mean, the people who are winning are actors, and their job is to play someone they're not,” Stu observed. “Their job is to lie to you convincingly!”

“Obviously they are doing a good job of it,” Pat quipped.

From the media world, ABC News’ Robin Roberts faired the best, ranking twelfth on the list. Other journalists and personalities include, Ellen DeGeneres, Diane Sawyer, Brian Williams, Katie Couric, Barbara Walters, Anderson Cooper, George Stephanopoulos, Oprah Winfrey, and Scott Pelley.

“No way,” Pat said in reaction to Pelley making the cut.

Fox News Channel, the most watched cable news channel in the country, only managed to get just one person – Shepard Smith – on the list. And Shep is ranked 100th.

“The most popular news network gets one [person],” Stu said.

“And the most watched in America, Bill O'Reilly, not on it,” Pat added. “Come on now.”

Other notable names to make the list include First Lady Michelle Obama, who is ranked at number 19. Meanwhile, Communist sympathizer Noam Chomsky is number 20.

“America, if we didn't have other things to do, I'd love to take a real poll and just ask people cold: Who do you trust,” Glenn said. “I wonder… is there anyone out there that you trust? I can't put a list together. Come up with five names of people you trust. We should do that tomorrow on the show.”

“Tell us the five names of people that you really trust,” Glenn concluded. “I don't know if I could come up with five.”

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
