Here’s the Problem With the New Ruth Bader Ginsburg Documentary

What’s going on?

“Notorious RBG” is coming to a theater near you. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the subject of a new documentary called “RBG” that comes from CNN Films, the movie division of CNN. The film got a lot of buzz after its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, where Ginsburg herself talked about how much she liked the doc.

Glenn’s take:

Why is CNN allowing itself to be affiliated with this partisan documentary when it’s supposed to be an objective source of news? Glenn wondered if a similar film about Justice Neil Gorsuch would be as well-received if Fox News decided to make one.

“They would be slammed by the left as total partisan propaganda,” Glenn said. “Remember CNN, ‘facts first’? ‘Apples are apples’ and all of that stuff?”

GLENN: RBG is an epic motion picture coming soon to a theatre near you.

Imagine if Fox News produced a documentary about a current Supreme Court Justice, like Neil Gorsuch. Seems like the kind of thing Fox News might do. But it would be slammed by the Left as totally partisan propaganda. A legitimate news network like CNN would never make propaganda like that. Remember? Facts first. Apples are apples and all that.

A documentary about Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on Sunday. It’s titled RBG – get it? And who produced it? CNN. The news network describes Ginsburg as a “cultural icon.”

When has any conservative human ever been called a cultural icon?

At the premiere, the “Notorious R.B.G.,” which is the hip nickname her fans gave her, was introduced by Robert Redford. After a standing ovation from the crowd, which included CNN boss Jeff Zucker, Ginsburg was interviewed onstage.

It’s bad enough that a Supreme Court justice allows herself to be paraded like a popstar, rubbing elbows with Hollywood and CNN. But then the interview turned to the #MeToo movement. The crowd waited in hushed silence as Ginsburg recalled her own harassment as a Cornell student in the 1950s. She told of a chemistry professor who offered to give her a practice test, which she accepted. But when she showed up to take the real test the next day, it was the same “practice” test he’d already given her. “And I knew exactly what he wanted in return,” she said.

The crowd waited for the next part of the story. But that was it. No more story detail.

It’s very strange to hear a Supreme Court Justice, sit in front of an audience and convict her former professor of sexual harassment without sharing any additional evidence. In trying to support the #MeToo crowd, she accidentally illustrated the biggest pitfall of this movement – convicting people before they’re proven guilty.

That seems very wrong of a judge to do.

Ginsburg also forgot to acknowledge the #MeToo victims of the man who appointed her to the Supreme Court – Bill Clinton.

This is the problem with the radical Progressive agenda, not even a 25-year veteran of the Supreme Court can keep up with the inconsistencies. It gives a whole new meaning to the phrase justice is blind.

Right vs. Left: The Time for Compromise Is OVER | Jesse Kelly | Ep 146

The Left worked for decades to get control, and now they have it: “Every cultural pillar has been infected and taken over,” Jesse Kelly warns Glenn. So, it’s time to get out of the stands and onto the field. On this episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," the host of the nationally syndicated "Jesse Kelly Show" joins with a blunt message for the Right: The time for compromise is gone. This system that’s raising young people who hate America can’t be salvaged, and while taking back Congress in 2022 would be nice, LOCAL victories are what really matter. But this won’t be a quick fight. Thankfully, Jesse has some solutions, and they involve Play-Doh …

Where are our STANDARDS, America?

Since when are we the people that throw our hands up and accept the new normal?

We're the people, that despite all odds, we took it on. We didn't settle for less. And that's what they're telling you to do now, settle for less.

No. That's not who we are. Why would we be willing to sit around and wait for the government to fix it?

Don't lower your standards. That's un-American. We don't lower our standards. We raise standards. And that is our legacy.

Elon Musk CALLED OUT for…chocolate milk?

You can milk anything with nipples, as we discovered in the documentary Meet the Parents. Maybe someone should tell Elon Musk if he's really serious about the environment, he should try oat milk, almond milk, heck — there's even banana milk. It would at least keep some of the lefty trolls at bay.

Biden’s border bloodbath: The deadly crisis EXPOSED

Corruption, greed, and death. This is what the Left’s border policy is REALLY about, not the humanitarian effort they claim it is.

On tonight's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck exposes the groups benefitting from the border chaos under the Biden administration. A leftist money supply flows to NGOs on the border that are now taking the roles that the government should be filling with immigration and helping immigrants to flood into the U.S. Glenn asks: Why is the U.N. funding the flow of migrants to our border and subverting Congress? Why are former Biden staffers working for “non-profits” that are now getting exclusive, HIGHLY irregular multimillion-dollar border contracts? Worse than that, the consequences of Biden’s border policy have now turned deadly. National Guard members at the border are dying, fentanyl from China pours across the border, and terrorists have found an easy path to enter our country.

Finally, Glenn asks Texas Rep. Chip Roy if it’s time to impeach DHS Secretary Mayorkas for his negligence that is costing American lives.
