Pursuit of the Truth Episode 6: Who will make the final three?

Well, it’s time for the contestants to show the judges what they’re made of…

On Wednesday night, sixth episode of Pursuit of the Truth featured the contestants heading back to TheBlaze’s NYC studios to present their two-minute sizzle reels to the judges, who held nothing back in their critiques.

While their competitors watched backstage, four contestants showed off their work and faced tough questions from Chalfen, Billingsley, and Hatkoff.

First up was Chris Bell and his reel for “Prescription Thugs”, a documentary that exposes a deadly epidemic of prescription drug abuse.

In his original pitch, Chris Bell said he was going to focus on the average person suffering from addiction and FDA’s use of undercover stings. But in his reel, Bell stayed in his “comfort zone” of interviewing athletes and professional wrestlers, an area which he had previously covered in his documentary Bigger, Stronger, Faster. Chalfen and Billingsley wondered why he didn’t go outside the box, and Bell shifted the blame to his financial resources, something that didn’t sit well with the judges who had all worked on innovative projects on tight budgets.

Once the inquisition was over, Bell headed to the backroom and warned his fellow competitors to be preparing to face difficult questioning.

Things certainly didn’t get any easier for the other filmmakers. Kelvin Owens was taken to task for the lack of original footage. His documentary, “An American Intervention”, would be a deconstruction of The Federal Reserve. The judges didn’t think that the sizzle reel showed off what the documentary would be, and the lack of new interviews was very worrying.

The judges were impressed by Joshua Ligairi’s reel for “Plan 241”, but wondered if he would be able to meet the deadlines they set forth for the winner and whether if he could land the key interviews needed to tell his story.

Last up this week was David Rufful, whose “The Dartmouth Review Pleads Innocent” would expose the liberal elite at a premiere American university and the conservative counter-culture that started to fight back. A first time filmmaker, Rufful had a hard time answering the judges questions and appeared nervous when defending his lack of technical experience.

Next week, the final two contestants make their case.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.
