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.

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
