BuzzFeed: The Bold and Brave Frontier of New Media

Where can you learn 49 things you don't say to your plumber and read about corruption at the highest levels of government? BuzzFeed, of all places, has developed a powerful model of mixing hard-hitting news and pop culture fodder for a new generation of online viewers.

"I don't know how the election's going to turn out, but I can tell you that we can now call it that BuzzFeed has won the election. They have broken almost every significant story about this election since it began," Co-host Stu Burguiere said Wednesday on The Glenn Beck Program.

"Can I tell you something, they have done an amazing job. BuzzFeed, this is new media," Glenn said.

"It's incredible," Stu echoed.

A story published today outlining Trump's campaign manager, Paul Manafort, as the orchestrator of pro-Russian, anti-NATO rallies that laid the groundwork for the takeover of Crimea. 

"This is Russia stealing part of another country, and the guy who is running the Trump campaign up until today was one of the guys laying the groundwork for this to happen," Stu said.

Trump recently created a firestorm when speaking out against NATO, suggesting the United States lessen it's roll the military alliance.

BuzzFeed also broke a story in 2014 about pro-Russian forces are paying people at Breitbart to write positive stories during the Ukrainian and Russian conflict.

"They're getting $500 checks to write stories that are positive for the Russian, including pulling quotes from emails from the pro-Russian people, pulling quotes from them and just putting them in stories," Stu reported.

"Can you even imagine if we found out that ABC News was doing that? Can you imagine what we would all be saying?" Glenn asked. "And those people who support Donald Trump will avert their eyes. I'm telling you, we are in massive trouble if this guy gets into office."

Amazingly, BuzzFeed has broken much of the news about the corruption surrounding Trump and his ties with Breitbart and Russia.

"I can't get over the fact that it appears on the same site as 17 Wondrous Things That Will Make Life With Boobs Easier. It's mind-boggling," Co-host Pat Gray added.

Evidently, it's a smart strategy that works like crazy.

"Any news source that is taking down Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton and talking about how dangerous both of these guys are, you can trust them," Glenn said. "I don't think left and right matters anymore. The truth is the only thing that matters."

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:

Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg has surged in the polls in the past month.

With former Vice President Joe Biden dropping below far-left presidential candidates such as the unapologetically socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.), and the almost equally extremist Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass), Democratic voters seeking a more moderate alternative are setting their sights on Mayor Pete.

But are Buttigieg's policies actually moderate? Not even close, Glenn Beck said Thursday on the radio program.

"[Pete Buttigieg] wants people to see him as a moderate. The mayor of a Midwest city in a red state ... and he's going for the middle, even though he is not a moderate candidate in any way," said Glenn.

Here are just a few example of where Buttigieg stands on the issues:

  • Supports late-term, partial-birth abortion
  • Eliminate the Electoral College
  • Buyback program for assault weapons
  • Raise the federal minimum wage to $15/hour
  • Expand Medicare
  • Decriminalize illegal immigration
  • Pay for infrastructure through changing taxes on corporations, the wealthy
  • Study reparations
  • Legalize marijuana
  • Increase existing taxes on upper-income Americans
  • Cancel some student debt
  • Don't use tariffs to pressure countries

An official at the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations' health agency, has issued a warning, calling the coronavirus "the worst enemy you can imagine" and more of a threat than "any terrorist attack," during a media briefing on Tuesday.

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO's director general, said that a vaccine for the coronavirus will likely take 18 months to develop. The virus has reportedly killed hundreds and infected tens of thousands of people, primarily in China.

"To be honest, a virus is more powerful in creating political, social and economic upheaval than any terrorist attack. It's the worst enemy you can imagine," added Ghebreyesus.

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck noted that the same agency in charge of developing this life-saving vaccine, has taken the time to officially change the disease's name to COVID-19, citing the concern of "stigmatizing" any specific geographical location, individual, or group of people.
