#NBCraceHate: You won’t believe what CNBC said about Ted Cruz

Glenn opened the radio program this morning with some egregious audio from CNBC yesterday involving Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX). During a segment about the weak jobs report, which CNBC’s Steve Liesman seemed to attribute to Sen. Cruz, Liesman asked for some “Mexican music” to be played while they talked about Cruz.

“So I want to play the audio of CNBC yesterday and what CNBC said about Ted Cruz. They are now calling the jobs numbers ‘Cruz numbers.’ They are blaming now a lackluster number in job creation on Ted Cruz. Can we just think about the lack of personal responsibility here? This president has never taken responsibility for anything a day in his life,” Glenn said exasperatedly. “And so now they are blaming the job numbers on Ted Cruz… Why are they so afraid of Ted Cruz… You don't spend your time, your treasure to take apart somebody that isn't making an impact.”

“They are terrified of Ted Cruz, terrified, because every Saul Alinsky tactic is coming out, every single one,” Glenn continued. “In fact, CNBC can't even get his Cuban heritage straight. For some reason, they said this yesterday:”

“Can we get some Mexican music? What does that mean,” Glenn asked. “Are you calling him a bean eater? Is that what you're saying?”

Could you imagine what the backlash would be if someone asked that African music be played while talking about, say, President Obama? That individual would no doubt be off the air the very next day.

“You can't even say ‘a chink in the armor’ and be on the air. You can't even say that. These guys can say, ‘Can we get some Mexican music,’” Glenn asked disgusted. “First of all, what does that mean? He's not Mexican. You want to call him something, call him American or maybe Canadian – if you want to go down the birth certificate road. What does that mean? He's Mexican? Is that a slam on Mexico? What a racist statement that is.”

CNBC happens to be the sister network of NBC and MSNBC, both of which have enjoyed their fair share of controversy.

“Let's just go down the road of crimes perpetrated by NBC,” Glenn said. “They are the ones that edited the tape making George Zimmerman out to be a racist. They edited the tape to make him a racist. What are the other things?”

“They edited the tape of Mitt Romney during the Wawa speech and made him look like a buffoon,” Pat added.

“Ed Shultz ran a report of Wolf Blitzer, in which he made Nazi references throughout to try to paint him in a bad light,” Stu explained. “He called the segment ‘Blitzerkreig.’”

After rattling off a couple of examples, Glenn then asked his listeners to get in the action by tweeting other examples of NBC’s low journalistic standards using #NBCraceCrimes.

“Please help us: #NBCraceCrimes,” Glenn said. “I would really like to see because I contend NBC has turned into – I mean long past Pravda into race hate. Who else can get away with that? Who else besides NBC can get away with that kind of race hate?”

Another way to let CNBC know you will not tolerate this kind of content is to contact the individuals responsible. Glenn shared the following Twitter handles on radio this morning, and urged the audience to share their opinions clearly but politely.

Leisman has since issued a formal apology for his remarks, saying he meant no offense by his words and his choice of "Mexican music" had nothing to do with Sen. Cruz's heritage. But is it too little too late from a network that has a history like NBC?

“Wow, are they terrified. The Lucifer Effect looks at the dark side of each of us, and this we should pay attention to because NBC has chosen its path,” Glenn said. “Instead of enlightening and lifting up, they have chosen the path of darkness, by saying all of the racial stuff that they have said, by embracing the squashing of the human spirit. Instead of saying, ‘Look, we can all disagree on things’… they have chosen the authoritarian way.”

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.
