Another Russia Today anchor with a death wish: Rips Putin, quits on air

A Russia Today news anchor made the bold decision to quit her job on Wednesday – during a live broadcast. The grandchild of Hungarian refugees who fled Soviet oppression, Liz Wahl said she is “proud to be an American” and could no longer “be a part of a network that whitewashes the actions of Putin” before singing off the network for good.

Last night, Glenn shared the story on Facebook, calling Wahl a “hero” and questioning whether journalists at American news networks would be willing to stand up in a similar way in light of the Obama Administration prosecution and targeting of reporters. He took a similar stance on radio this morning.

Check out Wahl’s on-air resignation in the clip below:

“I think that is remarkable," Glenn said. "Now, if you go the easy place and say, you know, nobody is watching Russia Today, so it's not really a big deal… No, no, no. She's making an impact with what she said… because we are replaying it, and I think this is fantastic.”

While it might be easy to understand why an American journalist would cease working with an outlet like Russia Today, it is important to consider the state of press freedom in the United States as well. When the group Reporters Without Borders ranked the United States number 46 in the world for press freedom, citing the U.S. government’s investigations into various newsrooms, many gawked. But, under Obama Administration, freedom of the press is not what it used to be.

As Glenn explained, wouldn’t it be nice if more journalists stood up and said: It is time for the government to stop interfering with the press:

Wouldn’t it be nice if we had a journalist or two that cared about the Fourth Amendment or the First Amendment enough to say, ‘Hey… They were threatening my friends, my journalist friends. They are spying on their parents. The NSA is violating the Fourth Amendment, and I know what's going on. But I'm an American first. I'm not a Democrat. I'm not a progressive. I'm not a Republican. I'm not a TEA Party person. I'm an American. And there are certain truths that we used to hold self-evident. And here they are: You can't spy on us… We don't squash people voices in America. And it's important that all voices are heard. Yes, even Al Jazeera. Yes, even Russia Today. Yes, those voices have a place and they can be heard.’”

Wouldn't it be nice if a journalist said, ‘You know what? The New York Times won't accept a picture from an outside source… and yet the President is boxing us out of the White House. We don't get our photojournalists in. Our photojournalists aren't going in and taking those pictures. Those are his photojournalists, and they're not journalists. They are his photographers. We're not getting candid pictures anymore. We're getting set up propaganda film from the White House. We don't get to go into the White House and tape these things anymore. Wouldn't you love to hear a journalist stand up and say that?

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.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."
