BuzzFeed Takes a Page From the Glenn Beck Playbook

While no chalkboard was involved, BuzzFeed recently published a diagram connecting the dots between businesses and people tied to Donald Trump, seemingly in an effort to track transparency in the new administration.

"Have you ever seen anything like this before?" Glenn asked Tuesday, feigning surprise.

The obvious answer is yes.

Glenn did the very same thing with Barack Obama, calling attention to the president's troublesome relationships with labor unions, community organizers and socialists. However, he was labeled a "conspiracy theorist" and called "insane" for doing so. Don't hold your breath, though, for anyone in the hypocritical mainstream media to notice the similarities --- or label BuzzFeed "crazy."

Enjoy this complimentary clip from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: All right. So a couple of hard questions. Some for us, some for the media. Buzzfeed, help us map out Trump world.

What they've done is Buzzfeed has taken all of the business ventures that are connected to the Trump organization. So it's basically 7 degrees from Kevin Bacon. So anybody who is in direct business and then who is the next jumping point from them.

So Donald and then who is connected to his sons -- who is connected to anybody else in the organization?

PAT: Including his cabinet positions too.

GLENN: Right.

PAT: The people that are in his cabinet, they've also diagrammed them. So you're going to have all of the -- you know, the Goldman Sachs people, and that's going to be a tangled web too.

GLENN: Right. So it's an interesting thing.

PAT: It is. It's a very interesting thing.

GLENN: Right.

Have you ever seen anything like this before?

PAT: Yeah, I have.

GLENN: When have you seen that?

PAT: Let me think. Oh, that's -- with the Tides Foundation.

GLENN: With the Tides Foundation.

PAT: And George Soros.

GLENN: And George Soros. Why would I do that? And the labor unions. I remember SEIU. I remember the AFL-CIO.

PAT: You were trying to show that no president was more connected to all of these community organizing organizations.

GLENN: Right. So I was -- I diagrammed AFL-CIO. SEIU. ACORN, the Tides Foundation, and George Soros. And why did I do that?

Because I don't like these -- these community -- these harmless community organizing groups

PAT: And none of them are harmless. We all know they're social justice social organisms.

GLENN: Correct. Most of them are open borders, one world government, socialist, Marxist leaning.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Okay? Not the pillar of American constitutionalism. So what I did was I spent two years diagramming all of the connections. For that, I was mocked, ridiculed, and called a conspiracy theorist. Now, here's the mainstream media --

PAT: It's amazing.

GLENN: -- who is afraid of business connections, saying, we ought to know exactly who he's connected to.

But this, remember, is not a conspiracy theorist. This is the news media. So they're not into conspiracies. They just want to know all the connections.

Do you remember when Twitter -- how did I first use Twitter? When Twitter first came out, remember, we used it first for watchdogs.

PAT: Oh, right.

GLENN: If you see a connection we might have missed, bark. Let us know.

STU: That is what Buzzfeed is asking for.

GLENN: That is exactly what they're asking for. They've turned into me. How does that make you feel, Buzzfeed? How does that make you feel, mainstream media?

Now, I'm going to do what the mainstream media and Buzzfeed wouldn't do to me. I think this is valid. I think we should look at every single president and everyone who is around him. Because if we would have, we would find social justice warriors that were 9/11 truthers and communist sympathizers, like Van Jones. But you don't have a problem with Van Jones. So that's -- that's why it's a conspiracy to even talk about him.

PAT: They do have a problem with Goldman Sachs.

GLENN: Correct.

PAT: And every connection that leads to.

GLENN: Correct. They have a problem with businesses. They have a problem with ExxonMobil. We don't have a problem with that.

Now, the thing is, can we find a balance that we look for the bad guys in business and the bad guys in -- in community organizing? Can we do that?

The answer should be yes. But are we doing it? The answer is clearly no. Because there's no self-awareness from the media. Fix that first. Physician, heal thyself.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

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.
