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.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
