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.

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."

California has gone to hell. Homelessness and violence have spiked. Civil liberties and businesses have been destroyed in the name of "COVID safety." Children have been brainwashed with racist critical race theory. And yet, Democrats want to use California as the test model for the entire country. Your state and your town are next. They want their FAILURE to become YOUR FUTURE.

Dave Rubin, host of BlazeTV's "The Rubin Report," moved to Los Angeles about a decade ago. In that time, he's watched it descend into absolute chaos. While most of his news and comedy friends have fled, Dave tells Glenn Beck why he's riding it out and how the rest of the country must save itself from progressive policies and "evil" governors like Gavin Newsom — or else the great American experiment will be over.
