Glenn Reveals Shocking Tidbit From Private Encounter With Roger Ailes

On his radio program Thursday, Glenn shared stunning details of a private encounter he had with Former Fox CEO Roger Ailes while working for the network. Ailes died Thursday morning at the age of 77.

Glenn recounted the closed-door meeting with Ailes in his office.

"I'm walking out after this meeting with him," Glenn said. "I start walking toward the door, and I see this picture --- this black and white photo of a young Roger Ailes, maybe 29, in the Oval Office."

When Glenn asked him what the picture was, Ailes replied, "Oh, that's the first split screen."

Glenn had the shock of his life when he realized Ailes had actually worked on the split screen featuring Richard Nixon making a phone call to the moon.

"This is the kind of stuff that was just kind of like hanging around him, the kind of life that you're not going to find on Wikipedia," Glenn said. "If you go to Wikipedia today, all you're going to see is the bad stuff."

If you look closely in the video below, you can see the split screen line moving back and forth:

GLENN: And the door to his library was a solid wood door, and he went in -- and we were going to have a talk, and he closed the door. And as I'm walking out after this meeting with him -- I don't even remember what it was. We were just talking.

And I -- and I get up, and he's taking a phone call or something. And I get up, and I start walking towards the door. And I see this picture, this black and white photo of a young Roger Ailes, maybe 29, in the Oval Office. And he is -- there's a camera beside him. And he is pointing down to the left.

And he hangs up the phone, or whatever. And I said -- now, this is behind a door. The door is usually open.

And I said, "Roger, what is this picture?" And he said, "Oh, that's -- that was the first split screen."

And I said, "What?" And he said, "Somebody had to come up with the split screen. You know, we didn't always have split screen." And I'm like, "Don't talk down to me." And I said, "What was it?"

And he said, "We were in the Oval Office. It was Dick Nixon. And I said, 'We should come up with a way to where Dick can talk to Neil Armstrong, but we should split the screen, so when Neil is on the moon. He's in one box and the president is in the other box.'"

This is revolutionary thinking at the time. And he said, "But when we put it together, you know, Neil is on the moon. We don't know which way he's going to be facing or turning or anything else. And I don't know which side of the screen the box of the about the is going to be on." He said, "So we set up three TVs, one that I could see and two -- one on one side of the Resolute Desk and one on the other side of the Resolute Desk."

And I said to the president, "Look at me. As soon as you go on and you say, 'Neil,' they're going to go to this new split screen, when -- when I see which side of the television you're on, I'm going to point to one of the televisions. You look at that television because it will look like you're looking at Neil in the picture."

So he said, "That's the moment where I'm looking at the television, seeing Neil Armstrong on the moon. And I point to the president, 'That one.'"

This is the kind of stuff that was just kind of like hanging around him, the kind of life that you're not going to find on Wikipedia. You're not going to find -- and if you go to Wikipedia today, all you're going to see is the bad stuff.

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
