Glenn sounds off on the Comcast/Time Warner merger

The two biggest cable companies in the United States are attempting to join forces as Comcast is trying to buy Time Warner Cable for a cool $45.2 billion. The deal is likely to face a yearlong approval process involving the FCC and either the Department of Justice or the Federal Trade Commission. Needless to say, customers and regulators aren’t exactly thrilled with the idea of having even less options on the cable provider front. And while Glenn is certainly not a fan of government regulation, he did question the merger on radio this morning.

“Man, am I torn because I am not for getting involved in anybody's business. And whatever companies want to do, companies should do. Let them succeed on their own or collapse under their own weight. When an industry has to run to Congress and say, ‘Oh, help, help, help, help, help,’ that's a sign that that industry is about to collapse,” Glenn said. “Right now, Comcast is trying to buy Time Warner, which makes them gigantic. And I don't have a problem. As Mike Rowe said, there is nothing inherently bad with being big. There's nothing inherently bad with being small. It's just where you are. And survive on your own merit.”

Regardless of how you feel about the future of cable. There are obviousl concerns about further limiting the number of options available. Last month, TheBlaze released a video that shows a very select group of people control what you see on TV:

TheBlaze’s CEO, Chris Balfe, was quoted in a Variety article expressing his concerns about what the merger could mean for independent voices:

“As monopolies in the markets that they serve, cable companies often ignore their subscribers’ wishes,” said Chris Balfe, the company’s CEO. “Major MVPDs do not have a good history of supporting independent programmers whose content is in demand like TheBlaze and we are skeptical that giving Comcast even more market power will benefit consumers, promote competition or lead to more diversity of voices or consumer choice on their channel line ups.”

Neither Comcast nor Time Warner has added TheBlaze to their channel lineups despite your persistent calls and emails. Glenn suggested now might be a good time to remind these providers you would like to see TheBlaze added.

“Comcast is one of the bigger pains in the neck for TheBlaze… Companies can run the way they want… I don't think there's a problem with calling up Comcast now and saying, ‘Hey, I hear you guys are going up in front of congressional hearings because you don't listen to your people. And there's really no balance… Have you guys thought about carrying TheBlaze?’ I just think that it would be an opportunity to remind them. Like right now, there seems to be an opportunity.”

“There's no such thing as too big to fail. People will fail because they suck, no matter how big they are. If they suck and government does not create special favors for them, then there's nothing natural stop them from failing,” Glenn concluded. “U.S. out of my business, out of my bedroom, out of other people's business that might be my competitor. Get out of our way. That's really the message. That's the message to Washington.”

President Joe Biden just had the worst-rated week in the entire first year of his presidency, but his latest poll numbers are the icing on the cake, Bill O'Reilly told Glenn Beck on the radio program.

Given that polls aren’t always correct, O’Reilly explained another way to prove that Biden's first year may be worse than any other president's before him: It’s impossible to name one single contribution Biden has made to move America forward.

"Biden: There isn't anything you can point to. Not one thing ... that he's done to improve the nation. That's the test. You just step back, take emotion out of it, politics out of it, and say, give me one thing that Joe Biden has done to improve the country. Just one. And you can't do it," O'Reilly said. "And if there is, I want your listeners to contact me at BillO'Reilly.com."

A recent report from Rolling Stone details a public letter sent to Spotify — signed by "270 physicians and scientists" — demanding that the platform implement a "misinformation policy" in response to Joe Rogan's recent interview with Dr. Robert Malone on “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

"This is absolute fascism," Glenn Beck said on the radio program. "There is no safe space. They're coming after talk radio. They're coming after our podcasts. They're coming after our websites."

Glenn said this is this is just one more example of the left's crackdown on freedom of speech and further prove of their ongoing fight against free thinkers or anybody who wants to have an open conversation that may include ideas contrary to what they believe.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession.
