Good Morning Joe

Below is an excerpt of a post that originally appeared on Medium: Megyn Kelly, Fox News and the Curse of Me...

Dear Megyn,

Though I don’t believe everything I read in the press, it appears you are beginning to consider the next step in your career. I assume many people have weighed in and will continue to do so. But, since some have requested my opinion, let me attempt to provide my perspective.

Let me begin by saying that I think you are one of the most talented television journalists I have seen.

I don’t know, nor would I presume to know, what is right for you and your family, but I can tell you a bit about how I feel about my path. Going at it alone is hard. You are no longer just ‘talent’. It feels as if the world is on your shoulders. You take the responsibility of serving your audience, your advertisers, your partners, and your employees home with you every night. It is, ultimately, all on you.

Depending on the path you Blaze, you may find that some claim you no longer matter. They may say your star has fallen. They may even say that you’ve had your 15 minutes of fame.

Let them.

Those who use your name to engage in their own personal search for relevance deserve your condolences, not your contempt.

The question you have to answer is how do you want to be defined? Where do you want to make an impact? Do you want to frame the debate? Or do you want to speak to the people? Do you want to be judged by how big your bubble is or how many people you reach?

Make no mistake, being part of the Fox family is a remarkable experience, one you will never replicate. You are surrounded and led by the smartest people in the industry. There is so much to learn. There are so many opportunities to have your voice be heard. There is a clear path to make an impact.

There are far worse places you can be.

You could do a morning show you don’t own, on a network that no one watches, where your opinion is controlled and dismissed.

Imagine how that must feel.

Sad.

On the other hand, you could reach people on multiple platforms; where you take all the risks, reap all the rewards, and have an opportunity to reach tens of millions of people.

As I said, going your own path is hard and it’s not right for everyone. I know you will make the right choice. Your incredible connection with your viewers, who deeply respect your courage and conviction, will stay with you wherever you go.

If you do choose to leave for another network, you must consider how having a new boss on your next adventure would impact you. Let’s say, theoretically, you worked for Russia Today or a network with an even more biased perspective. Even if you had a clear preference for a Presidential candidate, would you be able to express that? While Fox News will stand by your ability to stay true to your principles, what if you find yourself at a network where you continually are asked to abandon what you claim to believe? Imagine if when you walked the halls people would whisper that you were only there as a ‘token’ to provide a ‘balanced’ perspective but not because you had any talent?

Imagine how that must feel.

So sad.

Do you wish to feel important? Do you wake up every day striving to be the loudest voice in the echo chamber? Or do you want to be honest?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
