Media Spews Fake Headlines After Glenn's Weekend Interview

Glenn joined John Ziegler with Mediaite for a podcast interview this weekend. Ziegler called it fascinating and important, urging people to listen to the entire 40-minute interview "if you care even a little bit about our dysfunctional media machinery and broken national dialogue."

Equally fascinating were the headlines used by major media outlines and social posts following the interview.

"I'm fascinated by how the media portrayed this. How the headlines changed," Glenn said.

Here are a few of the misleading headlines published in the media:

Beck Talks About Trump

Beck Takes on Trump

Beck Talks Trash About Trump

Interestingly, Glenn didn't talk much about Trump and blamed many problems on himself.

Glenn had three takeaways from the experience:

1. Being grateful for an interesting and intelligent interview --- because they don't happen often.

2. Many headlines didn't reflect the interview at all, focusing instead on red meat.

3. Many people commenting on social media clearly hadn't listened to the interview.

"We say we think that the media is horrible, and they report fake news, and we don't know the truth because of them . . . they'll never report the truth. Well, none of us are either," Glenn said. "Because if you're commenting on something that you haven't read, if you're commenting on something that you haven't listened to . . . how can you possibly know what that story is about? You can't. And we're all spouting off like we know everything. When in reality, all of us know nothing."

GLENN: I did an interview with John Ziegler from Mediaite and his podcast. I think Ziegler is one of the more honest people in the media. Almost to a fault. He just does not care. And have every -- every belief in me that at some point will do something that he doesn't like, and he'll say that we're the worst human beings of all time on that issue.

PAT: It's possible.

GLENN: But -- so I did an interview with him this weekend, and I thought it was a good interview. And he wrote something last night:

In my rather strange media career, I've had the chance to do interviews with some rather high profile newsmakers in some sticky situations. While my media weekend discussion with Glenn Beck was not the most publicized I have ever done, it may have been the most fascinating and important. If you care even a little bit about our dysfunctional media machinery and broken national dialogue, I urge you to listen to all 40 minutes of it. If you do, you'll be way ahead of many of those who commented on it.

This is what I want to concentrate on. You should listen to the podcast. John asked some really good questions. Some really good answers in it.

STU: He's great.

GLENN: But if -- what I'm fascinated by is how the media portrayed this. How the headlines changed. For instance, the one headline was misleading. Beck Takes on the Right -- or no, it was the most -- it was, like.

PAT: Beck Talks to Trump.

GLENN: Beck Talks About Trump.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And then the next one was Beck Takes on Trump. And then the next headline was Beck Talks Trash About Trump.

PAT: Oh, jeez.

GLENN: It just spirals. And if you read the comments, they don't even read or listen to the first source. They have no idea what they're talking about. So I just wanted to show you the opposite of the headlines that you're reading that Beck takes on Trump. Listen to his questions and the beginnings of my answers.

JOHN: How would you grade Trump after six months in comparison to what you had anticipated or feared?

GLENN: Let me say this: That I think we have an extraordinary opportunity right now to get Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan out of leadership. They have been a disaster. They can't get anything passed because what they're trying to pass has nothing to do with conservative values or the conservative movement or actually even helping people.

PAT: Seems like didn't even mention Trump there.

GLENN: Huh. Is there any other examples, maybe?

JOHN: Who or what surprised you most about how specifically the conservative media has dealt with Trump from the beginning of this odyssey until today?

GLENN: I would say in an unflattering way, I would say me.

GLENN: So now skip to the next one. What is this one about? This one is about the other headline that ran. First, Beck takes on Trump. Look, we have an incredible opportunity right now that I didn't see coming, and that's getting real tax reform passed if we can get congress to move. Don't even mention him. And then the next one is let's get you to take on the right wing media. Who were you disappointed in? Answer me.

PAT: Because you didn't read the pain of the audience. And then he pushes you a little bit further on it.

JOHN: Who or what surprised you most about the conservative media with regard to their dealing with Trump.

GLENN: Wow you're just trying to pin me down, aren't you?

JOHN: Glenn, I gave you a wide open there. I didn't ask you who. I said who or what. I'm giving you all sorts of options here.

GLENN: Okay. So I'm just going to go with what because I think people can make their own conclusions that I just -- I'm tired of the fighting back and forth. But people can make their own conclusions.

PAT: You never bashed anybody there.

GLENN: Right. So here's what I wanted to pull out of this. And I was grateful to John for A, an interesting and intelligent conversation. They don't happen very often. Listen to John Ziegler's podcast. You can find it in the links up at my Facebook page or GlennBeck.com, but it was interesting. And intelligent. So thanks for that.

Second, interesting how the headlines that were grabbed, many of them didn't reflect the interview. And if they did, they were the least interesting parts of it. They were just the bloody meat parts of it.

And one more step. Look at the comments from people on Facebook. Look at the comments from people under the stories. We say we think that the media is horrible, and they report fake news, and we don't know the truth because them, and they'll never report the truth. Well, none of us are either. Because if you're commenting on something that you haven't read, if you're commenting on something that you haven't listened to -- let me give you this.

He writes in this -- this is what I posted last night. This is hysterical. I posted last night quote, anyone who's bothered to listen to the whole interview would know that this simply was not even remotely true. In fact, I don't even think Beck directly criticized Trump even one time, despite me giving him numerous opportunities to do so. It was clear to me that Beck was bending over backwards to give Trump every chance possible to succeed. But while also standing on conservative principles in an effort to keep him and the movement at least somewhat honest. In reality, one of the more extraordinary moments in the discussion came when I asked him who or what surprised him most about dot, dot, dot. Okay, so that's what I post. The comments were right. Then why just stick your face in the Cheetos?

STU: These people are obsessed with that bit.

GLENN: They really are. Glenn bashed Trump repeatedly. Okay. Mr. Beck seems to me like you have a choice of accepting our form of government out of love of your country and continue to support the Constitution blah, blah, blah. John Ziegler is another liberal hack.

PAT: Liberal? Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: Bull, all Beck and his sidekicks do is criticize Trump. It goes on and on and on and on. They didn't even take the time to realize that this was a quote out of something that had happened that day about an interview. So they didn't listen to the interview, and they didn't read the story. All they saw was Beck, Trump, Ziegler. And they went.

PAT: For some people, unless you are saying that Donald Trump is the fourth member of the godhood.

GLENN: No, but I don't think that's --

PAT: They're not happy.

GLENN: A, I don't think it's -- A, it's not just Donald Trump supporters. It's all of us. It's all of us with our own point of view. We see somebody that says anything that we think we know what they're talking about, because we've put this person in a box, we automatically jump to "Yeah, well, that guy." We -- there's no way to move forward, unless we can have actual conversations. There's no way to move forward. The average person spends ten seconds per news story. So when you're looking at your story on Facebook or however you get your news -- The Blaze or GlennBeck.com or whatever -- the average person only spends ten seconds per story. How can you possibly know what that story is about? You can't. And we're all spouting off like we know everything. When in reality, all of us know nothing.

Chloe Cole says she began to be "brainwashed" by the gender ideology she saw all over social media when she was only 11 years old. By the time she turned 13, Chloe was convinced that she was a boy, and her parents didn't know how to respond. So they turned to the so-called "experts," who rushed Chloe into life-altering hormone treatments and surgeries. Not only did these experts give "no alternatives" to transitioning, but they lied to Chloe's parents behind her back to scare them into compliance.

Chloe joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to share her heartbreaking experience and to expose the dark world of “gender-affirming care,” which she believes no teen should ever be subject to — from hormone blockers to mastectomies: "This is all wrong. I regret every single step, and this shouldn't have happened."

She also had a warning for parents about what led her to make those decisions in the first place, and she provided some key advice on how to react compassionately to situations like hers.

Nearly two years after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the mystery of who planted two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic National Committee offices remains unsolved. Thankfully, the bombs were found and disabled before they could cause any harm, but with their potential for devastating consequences — not to mention the massive investigations into all things relating to Jan.6 — why does it seem like this story has practically fallen off the face of the earth?

No one in the corporate media has even tried to look into it, and the government's narrative that the bombs were meant to be a diversion for the Capitol riot doesn't make sense when you look at the timeline of events.

So, on this week's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck broke down the timeline of events that led up to the discovery of the bombs and how the facts appear to point toward one sinister conclusion:

  • Security footage reportedly shows that the two pipe bombs were planted in front of the DNC and RNC the day before the riot.
  • Neither bomb was concealed.
  • Then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris entered the DNC headquarters at approximately 11: 30 am on January 6.
  • At approximately 12:40 pm on January 6, the first pipe bomb was discovered sitting in plain sight outside the DNC headquarters, raising questions as to why the incoming vice president didn't have better security.
  • The pipe bomb had a one-hour kitchen timer that had apparently stopped with 20 minutes left on the timer. (Remember, the bombs were planted on January 5.)
  • The Secret Service reportedly erased their communications from January 5t and January 6 by "accident."

"It doesn't really hit you unless you look at it as a timeline, and then you're like, 'wait a minute that doesn't seem right.' The unsolved mystery of the pipe bomb has been used by the government to show that January 6 riot was part of a larger coordinated attack ... that the bombs were a diversion to get the Capitol police away from the Capitol," Glenn explained.

"But the bomb had a one-hour timer and it was planted at 8 p.m. the night before. So the bomb would have to go off the night before at about 9 p.m. on January 5. How's that a diversion? It's not physically even possible."

The Biden administration has weaponized the federal government against the American people. But officials have hidden most of their attacks behind a secretive and cavernous bureaucracy.

There are so many unsolved mysteries that Joe Biden and the Democrats not only refuse to answer, but in some cases appear as though they are ACTIVELY trying to cover up. Like what happened on January 6? Who is Ray Epps? Who planted the pipe bombs? What’s in Biden’s executive order on elections? What happened to the SCOTUS Dobbs leaker? What’s the COVID origin story? What’s happening with crypto, FTX, and the Central Bank Digital Currency?

These are just a few of the unsolved mysteries that we need to DEMAND answers on. On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck outlines a chalkboard that will leave you convinced the DOJ and FBI are LYING to the American people. The more secrets the Deep State holds, the more its power over us grows.
