Why does Glenn think he could be ‘out of business in two years’?

Technology has changed the way people consume content, and you can look no further than sluggish record sales, slumping box office figures, and declining television ratings to see the impact it is having on the traditional media and entertainment entities. On radio this morning, Glenn admitted he is not sure what the future holds and what will constitute “success” under this ever-evolving model.

“I think we could be out of business – I don't mean just us, I mean anybody like us – in the next two years,” Glenn said. “Everything is changing. I don't know what to do about it, but everything is changing.”

Jeffy offered an interesting example of this shift. He follows an artist on Twitter who recently posted “a random selfie of a girl in her underwear” that garnered some 500,000 likes and 1.5 million shares compared to an original piece of art that received just 387 likes and 14 shares.

“His conclusion is selfies are more appreciated than artworks,” Jeffy said. “What is the purpose of art? What is the purpose of Facebook?”

“This is an argument people are having everywhere,” Glenn added. “The world is being redesigned right now. Everybody is so busy holding onto what they have, they are going to be in the dust bin of history. I'm telling you now: The best minds in the world are trying to redesign it. It doesn't work this way anymore.”

Right now, there is a movement toward getting clicks or views or shares at all costs. Glenn does not believe this quantity over quality mentality is sustainable.

“That's the argument that's happening at the highest levels of some of these entertainment companies… doesn't matter the quality, doesn't matter what it is. Just put the panty pic up,” Glenn explained. “Okay and then what? That's like heroine. You have the panty pic today. What are you going to put up in six hours from now? And what are you going to put up tomorrow, and a week from tomorrow, and a year from now? There are not enough panty pics to keep that going.”

While Glenn isn’t sure what the future holds, he does believe this current obsession with throwaway content will ultimately lead to the return higher quality things that offer real substance.

“I don't know what the future holds,” Glenn concluded. “I don't know how any of this shakes out, but I really think that what happens in the end is good, because it gets us closer to something that is real.”

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
