Al Sharpton and Megyn Kelly Get Into Heated Exchange Over Ferguson

Fox News host Megyn Kelly and activist and MSNBC personality Al Sharpton had a heated exchange Wednesday about the Department of Justice’s findings in the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson.

Kelly interviewed Sharpton at his National Action Network event in New York City, and she repeatedly challenged him about his rhetoric about the racially charged case.

Police officer Darren Wilson fatally shot Brown, a black teenager, in 2014 and claimed self-defense. Witnesses claimed that Brown had his hands up and was not a threat to Wilson, but a grand jury did not indict Wilson for any crime, leading to riots and a renewed debate about police conduct toward African Americans.

The Department of Justice investigation ultimately found Wilson did not violate Brown’s civil rights, and it also found no evidence to disprove Wilson’s belief that his life was in danger that evening.

Sharpton, however, maintained that witnesses told him they saw different, and he had no reason to apologize for his charged language about Wilson’s guilt.

“I stated what I believe,” Sharpton said. “I’m an opinion guy.”

But, Kelly said, that opinion had proven to be wrong, and she asked if he bore responsibility for Wilson’s current low circumstances, given the notoriety he’s faced since the shooting.

“You don’t talk to all the witnesses,” Kelly said. “The DOJ does. They get people in there, and it can be a crime to lie to an FBI agent. It’s not a crime to lie to Reverend Al.”

Sharpton told Kelly to “calm down.” Kelly bristled.

“Watch it with ‘calm down,’” Kelly said. “Ask Bill O’Reilly about that. I had to lecture him on that one himself.”

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
