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."

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.
