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?

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.

Disney actress Gina Carano was just the latest to be canceled for being vocally conservative — this time for making a Holocaust comparison. But on this week's episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," renowned Jewish historian Edwin Black explains how Gina's comparison wasn't exactly out of line: The second phase of the Holocaust, exclusion, "is like cancel culture."

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril. He told Glenn he believes our culture and our history are being erased. Our ideals are being censored and our values are being mocked.
