The Media's Childish Recommendation on How to Report on Trump

He started it first. He tweeted mean things. He pushed back.

Instead of putting on their big boy pants, the media now suggest that Inauguration Day becomes their Liberation Day.

A recent article from Politico stated:

He has been explicit in his disdain for the press and his dislike for press conferences, particularly to the nth degree about being challenged and known for his vindictive way to those who cross him. So forget about the White House pressroom. It's time to circle behind enemy lines.

"They're now suggesting that the press just go openly hostile to the president," Glenn said Tuesday on radio.

Wouldn't it be easier to just grow up and do what they're supposed to do: Report the news in an unbiased fashion?

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: So this is the -- this is the recommendation that the press is starting to kick around and think is a really good idea.

Donald Trump and his forthcoming presidency may be the greatest gift to Washington journalism since the invention of the expense account. His unorthodox approach to politics and governance has vaporized the standard, useful, yet boring script for reporting on the new administration's doing.

The news conference last week, Trump began the process of washing the press completely out of his fake hair, as he castigated CNN and Buzzfeed for reporting on the oppo research dossier compiled against him.

Fake news, said the man who has appeared on Infowars and commended the outlet's efforts. Trump's surrogate, Newt Gingrich, took to Sean Hannity's Program to assist the maiming of the media. Blah, blah, blah, blah.

Now, what do you think the press is going to say? What do you think they're going to do?

What do you think their recommendation on how to handle the next four to eight years?

PAT: Oh, it's unfair. Because I already know what the answer is. So...

GLENN: In his own way, Trump has set us free. Reporters must treat inauguration day as a kind of liberation day, to explore news outside the usual Washington circles. He has been explicit in his disdain for the press and his dislike for press conferences, particularly to the nth degree about being challenged and known for his vindictive way to those who cross him. So forget about the White House pressroom. It's time to circle behind enemy lines.

What a surprise.

Washington reporting has long depended on transactional relationship between sources and journalists.

So, in other words, we like to sleep with each other. The White House press dinner is obscene and grotesque.

Journalists groom sources. But sources also groom journalists. There's nothing inherently unethical about back scratching. When a reporter calls an administration source to confirm an embarrassing item, the source may agree to confirm, as long as the reporter at the very least agrees to listen sympathetically to the administration's context. Blah, blah, blah.

So they're now suggesting that the press just go openly hostile to the president.

PAT: Because he's hostile to them. So just go back at it.

GLENN: Right. Right.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Like he started it was ever a good argument to do something.

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests? 

Would you feel safe if your child attended a University that allowed pro-Hamas protests?

 Should Universities allow pro-Israel protests?

Is pro-Hamas rhetoric protected by the First Amendment?

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
