On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray reacted to an recent interview on BBC in which host Andrew Marr pressed Liu Xiaoming, the Chinese ambassador to the United Kingdom, to explain a leaked video that appears to show hundreds of shaven Uighur Muslims who are bound, blindfolded, and being led onto trains by uniformed soldiers.

The drone footage was originally posted on YouTube and has been "authenticated by Western intelligence agencies and Australian experts," according to Marr. It shows hundreds of shaven-headed male prisoners kneeling in rows with hands bound and eyes blindfolded in Xinjiang, home to millions of China's ethnic minority of Uighur Muslims.

The Chinese government has been accused of imprisoning roughly 1 million Uighurs in detention centers that are called "re-education" camps. Brutal human-rights abuses, including forced sterilization and torture, are allegedly part of the Communist Party's program of "ethnic cleansing" against the Uighurs.

"A video has been circulating the internet and China won't answer, what's going on," Glenn said. "It's drone footage ... a drone flying over a train station. And it shows hundreds of men, who have been tied with their hands behind their back. They're kneeling on the ground. Their heads are shaved. And they're all wearing blindfolds. Then each of them is escorted by two police officers ... and loaded onto trains. And nobody knows what happened to them. Nobody knows what's going on."

Glenn played part of the BBC interview, noting Liu's various attempts to deflect or deny Marr's questions about the video.

"Can you tell us what is happening here?" Marr asked Liu of the video.

"You know, Xinjiang is regarded as the most beautiful place in [China]," Liu answered.

"Ambassador, that is not beautiful coverage, is it?" Marr pressed. "According to your own local government statistics, the population growth in Uighur jurisdictions ... has fallen by 84% between 2015 and 2018," he added.

Liu continued to deny any wrongdoing against the Uighur population, pointing out that the general population in Xinjiang has "increased to double" over the past 40 years.

"China is so closed off, it's hard to know the truth about anything that's going on there, from the pandemic to what is happening here. But it sure looks like there's an ethnic cleansing going on," Pat said.

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
