Glenn and Pat confront LinkedIn investor

During the interview with Peter Thiel, Glenn and Pat confronted him for allegedly investing in the most annoying social media service on the planet — LinkedIn. What’s their problem with it?

Below is a transcript of the segment:

PAT: What was your -- what was your involvement with LinkedIn? Did you start LinkedIn?

PETER: No, I was just -- I was just an early investor.

PAT: Distance yourself.

PETER: I was an early investor.

GLENN: How could you do that? You're a guy that doesn't take business cards from people. Someone hands you a card, you don't like that.

PETER: I take them. You always get overwhelmed with people pitching you proposals.

GLENN: So you take them, but they end up in a circular file.

PETER: They end up somewhere.

GLENN: So how could you have been a guy who helped with LinkedIn. It's the bane of our existence.

PETER: How is that?

PAT: We get a million requests on LinkedIn and we don't know how to stop it.

GLENN: I swear I never signed up for the damn system.

PETER: You don't have to engage. You can always just not do anything.

GLENN: Yet it just keeps coming.

PAT: It's relentless. It's the most relentless --

GLENN: His wife asked me to sign up.

PAT: Accidentally pushed a wrong button and asked every human on earth to join.

GLENN: Jackie wants to know why you haven't done this. Jackie wants to know are you a bad human being Jackie wants to know are you Amish or something why won't you sign up with LinkedIn?

PETER: Let's focus on the positive here.

GLENN: Okay.

PETER: We are in an economy that's a networked economy, which means the relationships you build with people are unbelievably important over time.

GLENN: That sounds like a guy who is still making money from that damn LinkedIn.

PETER: Well, I'm not even invested in it anymore.

PAT: It's done good? Is that what you're saying?

PETER: It's done more good than evil.

GLENN: We're not accusing it of evil. It's just obnoxious.

PAT: It's done a lot of obnoxious --

GLENN: Just leave me alone. I don't want to be LinkedIn.

PAT: Can you unsign or unsubscribe or get off somewhere?

GLENN: This may be below his pay grade.

PAT: It might be.

PETER: You just don't have to do anything.

GLENN: Well, that's the opposite advice you gave about the future. You said, if we don't do anything, the future arrives. If we do nothing, we'll be sucked into the LinkedIn nightmare.

PETER: Don't do anything in general. Don't do anything in particular in certain areas.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
