The complete hypocrisy in the media's coverage of Hillary vs Republicans

How the media reacts to a story reveals a lot. When they don’t react, it speaks even louder. The day the Planned Parenthood video broke, no mainstream media outlet bothered to cover the story. It wasn’t until an entire day later that they begrudgingly began reporting on it. Now, from a media perspective, you’ve got shocking video. It’s undercover. There’s corruption. There’s murder. There’s no question that this has to be a must-cover story, but protecting the unborn isn’t high on the media’s priority list, so they ignored it.

But they wasted no my time leaping into action when Sandra Bland died in police custody after a routine traffic stop. That was labeled a suicide from the get-go, but the media refuse to accept that answer. Slate wrote about the history of the sheriff. USA Today wrote, “Sandra Bland laid to rest as questions arise.” Hillary Clinton blamed hard truths about race and justice. Listen.

Hillary Clinton: It’s heartbreaking to read about another death of a young woman, Sandra Bland, in Texas, another young African-American life cut short, and that’s why I think it is essential that we all stand up and say loudly and clearly yes, black lives matter. We all have a responsibility to face these hard truths about race injustice honestly and directly.

Oh yes, that’s what she’s all about, honestly and directly, whether it’s race injustice or her email or anything else. You know, the New York Times went deep into the history to try and prove a race narrative in the Sandra Bland case, “Texas County’s racial past is seen as a prelude to Sandra Bland’s death.” The research done here is notable. Significant staff and resources were assigned to the story. They had to further the media narrative that police are gunning down African-Americans for sport.

Immediately after the theater shooting in Louisiana, the media went into anti-Second Amendment mode right away. “Movie theater shooter’s mental problems didn’t stop gun buy.” NPR’s story, “Theater shooting highlights high rate of gun deaths in Louisiana.” Now, they wondered if a high rate of gun ownership was indeed the problem in the state. Oh yeah.

The next thing you know, the national media conversation morphed into a juvenile debate on should we have guns or not. I thought that debate had been settled since 1791, but these statists don’t want an armed citizenry, so naturally this is where the media angle veers towards after any shooting, even when there’s a much more compelling, significant storyline, like the tragic shooting in Chattanooga where four Marines and a sailor were senselessly murdered.

When the killer’s name was released, Mohammed Yousef Abdul Aziz, the media suddenly didn’t seem so vigorous in its research. There were no teams deployed, no extra staff digging into Mohammed’s life. There was a sort of aversion to labeling this a terrorist attack, an aversion that stretched all the way up to the White House.

The media found every opportunity to label him just a normal kid. The Washington Post said this wasn’t part of jihad but rather the work of an “aimless young man who came from a troubled home and struggled to hold down a job after college,” as if that isn’t the experience of millions of other American young American men who don’t shoot up military recruiting stations.

Federal investigators have dismissed the possibility of terrorism despite the fact that according to the New York Post, yep, not the Times or NPR, property records show the mosque Mohammed attended was affiliated with the same Islamic group as the mosques the Boston Marathon bombers went to and the hijackers who hit the Pentagon on 9/11.

The common link is the American Islamic Trust, who the DOJ named as a co-conspirator in the 2007 Holy Land Foundation trial. That led to several convictions of US-based Hamas terrorist leaders. Basically they were funneling money to terrorists in Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood and radicalizing people here in the states. The evidence is ample. We’ll get into the details coming up in a few minutes.

They make media’s rush to settle for the troubled teen angle all the more head scratching. Equally head scratching is the media’s desire to coddle and protect Hillary Clinton. I mean, this is a woman who just roped off the media like cattle. You’d think they’d have an ax to grind. Apparently not. The media says Hillary’s email saga is too complex, and it’s really hard to understand. So, it’s basically not a scandal at all. For it to be a scandal, we need to make up catchy banners for it, and besides, we’re busy finding ways to get Donald Trump into the news cycle.

Then out of nowhere, the New York Times dropped a bombshell. They wandered, they strayed from the approved statist line and published an exclusive report about a potential criminal investigation into Hillary’s email account. They claim that two inspectors general had requested a criminal investigation into whether Hillary mishandled sensitive government information, and yes, emailing classifying info over your Yahoo or Gmail is definitely mishandling top-secret information.

So, it looked bad, and then Hillary Clinton’s team called up the New York Times and complained. And would you believe it, they gave in to every complaint and rewrote the article. Look, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that the only possible reason to have a private email account as Secretary of State on which you are conducting your Secretary of State business is to do exactly what Hillary is doing right now, avoid and stave off any inquiries or investigations into wrongdoing. I mean, it’s so blatant even Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC conceded as much.

W: Is it possible Andrea, that the media analysts and others have underestimated the impact of this email situation on Hillary Clinton’s campaign?

Andrea Mitchell: I think so. Look, you have two inspectors general, and they are referring this to the Justice Department. Now, you can try to confuse it, and there’s been a lot of misdirection. There’s been inaccurate reporting significantly on Thursday night by the New York Times. It’s not a criminal referral, not at this stage. It could become, and it could become nothing. What they are suggesting is that there were classified—four out of the forty randomly selected had classified information, and it was not information that was later upgraded to be classified. It was information that was classified as “secret,” which is a level of classification at the time.

She admitted it but is still sort of meh about the whole thing. No one seems to be pointing out the gravity of the situation. I mean, here you have highly sensitive information being put at risk. Four out of forty randomly selected emails from Hillary’s private account had classified information—10%. Imagine what’s in the rest of the tens of thousands of emails, including all the ones she deleted, by the way.

During my time in the CIA, we were constantly reminded over and over again about what’s at stake with the protection of this sort of information, and we knew that there were very serious sanctions if you failed to protect classified. But Hillary’s flippantly out there on GChat or whatever spilling this stuff on unsecured networks. The media should be incensed, but Hillary Clinton herself in March said this:

VIDEO

Hillary Clinton: I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email. There is no classified material, so I’m certainly well aware of the classification requirements and did not send classified material.

Yes, that’s not true of, of course. That’s not true based on what we already know, but you see, if it’s not classified, it doesn’t mean that information is not classified. Classification is a process. The information has a sensitivity level, and that sensitivity level determines what the classification would be. So, if Hillary emails a pal what the nuclear codes are, even if she doesn’t write classified on it, it’s still classified. So, if she’s using her Gmail account to send all this stuff to people and not using any operational security whatsoever, just putting this out there on the open web, guess what, that information is still classified even if it doesn’t have a stamp that says top-secret at the top of it.

These are the sorts of inconsistencies that you would think would fuel the media skepticism on a story, and it might actually cause them to investigate it a little further. Look at the vigor with which the media went after other scandals involving very high-profile politicians. Chris Christie, how long have we had to deal with bridgegate? Scott Walker has a long-term investigation into those around him because of a convoluted series of allegations about how he’s moved money around and campaign coordination. Oh, they’ve got a name for this too, by the way, “Scott Walker’s dark money problem.” Ooh, spooky.

Rick Perry, of course, they opened an abuse of power investigation into him, but Hillary, when it comes to her, it’s complicated, depends on what your definition of classified is.

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."
