Here’s What You Need to Know About CNN’s Botched Report on Trump, Russia

On Friday, CNN reported that Donald Trump, Jr. had received information about the Wikileaks dump of hacked documents from the Democratic National Committee ahead of time … but they were off by 10 days, making the report pointless and inaccurate. The network corrected the story later that day and suspended reporter Brian Ross for the error.

GLENN: I wasn’t sure it was possible for the mainstream media to lose any more credibility… and then Friday afternoon happened. CNN - “The Most Trusted Name in News” - broke into their regularly scheduled programming with the mother of all scoops. They had undeniable proof that the Trump campaign had colluded with the Russians. An email was now in their possession showing that the DNC hacked emails had been offered to the Trump campaign on September 4th. That’s TEN DAYS BEFORE Wikileaks began releasing them online.

There it was. The uppercut they’d been looking for. Social media began to explode from the jubilation. CBS picked up the story claiming that multiple sources had come forward verifying this email and its contents. MSNBC, not to be outdone here, rolled out their own “intelligence and national security” correspondent who was also claiming “multiple sources” were confirming this bombshell. It appeared the media had beaten the Muller investigation and proved collusion with one damning email. Bette Midler and the View ladies were probably getting their Save the dates ready for the impeachment party.

Oh, there’s just one small problem here. All of this… the CNN breaking news, the ensuing social media hysteria, and the follow-up stories on CBS AND MSNBC were all FAKE NEWS. The date on the email - the smoking gun - was September 14th… not the 4th. That means, whoever sent the Trump Team this email, was merely showing them what Wikileaks had already published. The entire point and angle to this “coup de grace” news story was bogus and based off of a lie.

Fake News… that term gets thrown around a lot lately. To qualify being called “fake news”, the information in question has to have been delivered deliberately with the intention of misleading the public. Mistakes are not fake news, but this story WAS NOT a mistake. Multiple sources were cited by CNN, CBS and MSNBC, and they were all confirming the September 4th date. Answer me this. How can multiple sources, with an obvious high level of access, all give the same bogus date to three different news outlets? This wasn’t a mistake. This was a deliberate attempt to influence American opinion.

The question now is, who’s behind all this? Well, we know the House Intelligence Committee has access to these emails. Was this an attack by Democrats within the committee? Whoever it was, they appear to be powerful. There’s a rule in journalism that calls for the outing of a source if they intentionally try to mislead you. So far, the quote “multiple sources” are being protected. Why?

To the media: look, we get it. You don't like the Trump administration. In many cases you have good reason to feel the way you’re feeling, but can you try and show just a sliver of professionalism here? How about checking your information before going public… you know, BASIC STANDARDS OF JOURNALISM. We already have Russian intelligence services attempting to sway public opinion via cyber warfare, internet trolls, and social media ads. We don’t need you spreading fake news along with them.

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

This Brit Has a Dire Warning for America | Douglas Murray | The Glenn Beck Podcast | Ep 89

The state of America is worse than we realize: The Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority." But British author Douglas Murray asks, "Why should the majority remain silent?" In his latest book, "The Madness of Crowds," Murray warns that something dark has overtaken Western society. And having viewed the American Left firsthand, he now warns that we're heading down the same path as much of Europe did – and leading the rest of the world with us. He and Glenn discuss what he learned from marching with Antifa, the dangers of focusing on race and eroding masculinity, and whether it's actually time to be more like France as even President Macron warns that we've gone too far. But ultimately, Murray stresses with cautious hope that it's always possible to return to truth.

Battleground Georgia: The Radical Democrats Who Will Transform America | Glenn TV

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda. As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Do you have the GUTS to fight for freedom?

So here's what you need to do: it's time mentally to prepare to stand up for freedom, which will likely take a LOT of courage from ALL of us. But, Glenn says, 'I'm not sitting down.' And, it only takes 15-20 percent of us to change the world. Use this Thanksgiving Day to discuss with your families the grim times we potentially may face, and how together you can best articulate to others WHY America's core principles are so important to preserve. So, who's in? Do YOU have the guts to fight for freedom?

Far-left elites are using COVID to ‘reset’ America to socialism

Both Governor Newsom (California) and Governor Whitmer (Michigan) currently are being challenged by their state courts and governments for tyrannical policies issued during the COVID pandemic. And that's GREAT news because the 'Great Reset' continues to be pushed by far-left elites around the world…and Biden's team is in full support. Glenn explains how the Great Reset — a plan issued by the World Economic Forum — aims to use our current pandemic as a means to an end; they'll use COVID as an excuse to push 'stakeholder capitalism,' something similar to the economic system used today in China or the one used in 1930s Germany. Listen, as Glenn explains the TERRIFYING details to their plan…
