Behind the Scenes: Nobody Expected Glenn's New Chalkboard to Be Like This

When Glenn called a brief meeting to go over the upcoming chalkboard show he's launching later this month, nobody expected anything unusual to happen. After all, plans had been set and the purpose of this meeting was simply to get everyone on the same page, right?

Wrong.

As staff members filed into Stage 33, where the new show will be filmed, Glenn's executive producer Stu Burgiere could be heard going over the features of the new chalkboard.

Everything seemed normal at first. Glenn was listening to Stu and quietly nodding. Stu explained how Glenn would be able to interact with the new three-paneled expandable chalkboard, being careful not to touch the panels --- still drying from a fresh coat of chalkboard paint.

If there's anything predictable about Glenn, it's his that he's unpredictable.

Glenn paused. Then innocently asked if someone could hand him a piece of chalk.

Stu immediately suggested nobody get him a piece of chalk, perhaps realizing what was going to happen before Glenn even did anything. Someone handed Glenn a piece of chalk and the rest is history.

Glenn began scribbling rapidly.

"What if we put a timeline here, from the Tower of Babel until now, so we could show people exactly at what point in history we're talking about," Glenn said. "And if I draw a picture of someone here, can we make it talk?"

He was talking about bringing the chalkboard to life using movie magic.

"We may run into issues with the animation," Stu said. "There's a zillion things we can do here, we just really need to be methodical about what we're doing."

Glenn said he wants the new show to have a classic style that's familiar to people who enjoyed his past chalkboard episodes, while also appealing to families and young people.

"Let's think of this as a magic chalkboard time-machine," Glenn said to one of the designers in the room. "Give me some pens and I can start working on these right now."

The creative juices flowing freely, Glenn grabbed a couple of colored Sharpie markers, stretched out on the rug and got to work constructing the script for the first show.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
