MSNBC’s Ronan Farrow wins prestigious journalism award after 3 days on the air

You just can’t make this stuff up. Ronan Farrow, son of Woody Allen and Mia Farrow, began his broadcast journalism career three days ago with the launch of his MSNBC show Ronan Farrow Daily, but he has already earned himself a prestigious award: the Cronkite Award for Excellence in Exploration and Journalism.

“I just have to start the hour with congratulations to Ronan Farrow, who… after three days of work on television, has just won the Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism,” Glenn quipped on radio this morning. “I think the Nobel Peace Prize was already given to somebody who hasn't started their job yet this year. So he couldn't win because he had been on the job for three whole days.”

Farrow seemed to sense to irony in the award tweeting:

But there was still controversy surrounding the evening. Farrow made headlines earlier this year when he mused that Frank Sinatra not Woody Allen might actually be his father. Furthermore, he defended his sister Dylan after she wrote an op-ed accusing Allen of molesting her as a child. Questions about any of these things, however, were strictly off limits.

According to the Daily Mail:

Before the event, organizers Reach The World banned reporters from asking 'off-topic' questions - to ensure that Farrow will not have to comment on the controversy surrounding whether his father was Woody Allen or Frank Sinatra.

The organization even threatened to throw out anyone who broke the rule.

'The theme of the evening is global education and service,' a memo to the press read, reports Politico. 'All press are required to stay strictly on message. Any press who ask guests or Mr. Farrow about off-message topics will be immediately escorted out of the event.'

“When you're talking about the exploration in journalism I think that is exactly the kind of journalistic integrity that you're looking for – where they escort you out of the event,” Glenn joked. “Can you imagine if I said, ‘You know what? Anybody who asks me any question off this particular topic… I won't answer it.’ That's your new Walter Cronkite winner for journalistic excellence.”

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.

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.
