Shouldn't TIME's Person of the Year Be a Person?

TIME magazine announced today that its “Person of the Year” issue will honor the “silence breakers,” women and men who spoke out about sexual harassment and assault to spark a movement.

When actress Ashley Judd and other women went on the record to share their stories about film mogul Harvey Weinstein, their accounts of sexual harassment and assault started an avalanche of similar allegations against powerful men in multiple industries.

On today’s show, Glenn talked about TIME’s pick and noted that there are “many lessons” we can all learn from these “silence breakers.”

GLENN: TIME Magazine has just announced their person of the year. The person of the year. Silence breakers. Yeah, I know. It's a new boy's band. The Silence Breakers. No. The silence breakers are the men and women who have finally come forward to talk about the sexual misconduct or assault they experienced at the hands of powerful people.

Now, I happen to agree that this is probably the biggest thing that has happened this year. This is going to -- this really makes an impact. But it's not a person.

It's people of the year. It's an event of the year. That's a movement of the year. That's not a person of the year. But that's a feud that I've been having with TIME for quite some time. And they don't seem to care.

Speaking up about assaults by Harvey Weinstein and others like him, TIME claims these victims have been humbled and humanized. And have humbled and humanized Hollywood. They write, movie stars are supposedly nothing like you and me. They're svelte, glamorous, self-possessed. They wear dresses we can't afford and live in houses we can only dream of, and yet it turns out that in the most painful and personal ways, movie stars are more like you and me than we'll ever know.

No, I don't think this is -- do you think this has personalized them? I don't -- no. Uh-uh. Not one story has happened where I thought, you know what, they're just like me.

Well, that's because you're a white guy. Yeah, and I can't relate to all of the white guy perpetrators. This is not -- this is not who we are.

I think it's -- I think it's an epidemic proportions wherever there is real power. There is real power in Hollywood. There is real power in DC. There is real power in the financial sectors.

We're just getting started here. It is a fitting homage by -- by TIME, given the past three months of non-stop allegations, but I have a problem with it. Juanita Broaddrick and Paula Jones aren't mentioned by name in TIME's article. So does this mean that you're only a silence breaker if you only claim sexual assault in the past few months? Aren't these silence breakers? Juanita Broaddrick, weren't they the pioneers that did the hard thing and took it in the face and took the lashes to set the stage for these silence breakers?

Apparently not. Women have been speaking out for years against powerful people and those who abused them. It's only now that we're actually listening to them and not saying, well, look at the way she was dressed.

There are many lessons to be learned from the silence breakers. You're not alone. Even movie stars experience ugly parts of life. Don't be afraid to speak out.

If you experience assault of any kind, there's no shame of going to the police immediately. It's the most powerful thing you can do. And as we've seen recently, the court of public opinion is a very dangerous place. An allegation doesn't immediately make you guilty, from either direction. So let's continue to hold up due process and ensure that justice grows and prevails for everyone.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."

Glenn Beck has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just to have everyone look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China … the list goes on, but no consequences are paid. Now, the media have called the election for Joe Biden and insist no one can question it. But for many of the more than 71 million people who voted for President Trump, our search for the truth isn't over yet.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn called out the left's long list of alleged corruption that has gone unchecked and stressed that Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process of investigating the multiple allegations of election fraud to ensure our voting systems are fair.

"I don't know about you, but I'm tired. I am worn out. I am fed up!" Glenn said during his opening monologue. "I've had enough. I am tired of exposing corruption, doing our homework, even going overseas and having documents translated to make sure they're exactly right, [and] presenting the evidence ... except, once we expose it, nothing happens. Nobody goes to jail. Nobody pays for a damn thing any more!"
