GLENN: Scott Baker from Breitbart.TV is with me now and he's going to be the guy conducting the interview tonight and he is asking questions that we have asked you, the audience, to send in. How many questions did you get?
BAKER: You're audience is unnecessarily cruel. I had already read, like, 870 something. So, actually last night I wanted to have a clear head. So, I went to the gym, had a nice dinner. I came back. There were 500 new questions..
BAKER: I was up until 3:30.
GLENN: Do you have the questions ready? I mean, I
BAKER: I was going to read a couple to you, but I forgot my reading glasses. So
GLENN: Yeah, yeah. Give me generally speaking I don't want to know any of the questions in advance, obviously, just honest questions is all I ask. But give me a general idea where we're headed. What are they what do the Insiders you'll see this tonight. I said I'll do you know, I'm not afraid of I'm not afraid of answering questions. I just want somebody with an honest agenda, an agenda of just asking honest questions, not got you questions.
Glenn: So, where are we going on this?
BAKER: There are a lot of substance questions. And, in fact, the way that you phrased it reflects a lot of the attitude which is where are we going. A lot of people want to know your insights about, you know, the economy and politics, things you might expect. There are some very specific questions. I think there are people that are mad at you about some stuff. I know you've said the and for the audience, honestly, I mean, nobody I've been walking around here. Nobody has, you know, directed me about this. I'm the only one that's seen the questions. In fact, Pat just asked me during the commercial break, Well, what are some of the tough ones? And Glenn was, like, I don't want to hear it, I don't want to hear it. And
GLENN: You saw that on the Insider Extreme.
GLENN: You probably didn't hear it, but if you saw me put my hands up, I said, No, no. I don't want to know it. And
BAKER: I will also say that I got to be the first guest on the fourth hour yesterday.
PAT: That was exciting for you, wasn't it?
BAKER: Yeah. It was. And
GLENN: You know, I understand, though, that you guys I didn't hear it you guys were giving him
GLENN: You can make a question really, really hard. Like, this one will make him cry. And I'm like, This one will make him cry? Every one will make me cry. That's not a challenge.
PAT: We realized it would be more challenging no to make you cry. So
BAKER: And the bar is now can I make you walk off stage? That's really where the bar is.
GLENN: Thank you.
BAKER: I actually heard that in the hallway, too.
GLENN: Because and correct me if I'm wrong, Scott.
GLENN: The staff is my biggest enemy.
BAKER: Well, I was going to reveal that to you tonight. I don't think like, if I wondered around I created a new category of staff questions.
GLENN: Because I've heard this. Everybody is walking in the hay. I walk into their office. They're like, yeah, I think we can make you walk off the stage. I'm, like, wait a minute. Hold it. That shouldn't be your you're supposed to be on my side.
BAKER: But if you're nervous, I said this on the fourth hour, I said it might actually be more interesting if I just interview Pat about you. We might learn more.
PAT: Seriously, that would be you would be more.
GLENN: We're moving on now. So, this is for the Insider Extreme tonight. The first session is The Future of History and I'm going to tell you some stories that are just incredible, things that you just didn't know that I think will inspire and uplift and it will show you also where we're headed as a company and where my head is and where I'm headed and kind of give you the beginning look at where I think the country needs to go, where you need to go.
Now, when I say that, when I say you, I use a blanket statement. There are some of you that are listening to me now that are, you know, at moveon.com and that's a separate monolog on where you can go, but but then the second half is questions from you. Part of the Insider Extreme concept is extreme access. So, the idea was questions that I just wouldn't, you know, answer and things that we do now, we do and everybody does this you have parameters, usually, on interviews because I don't need an interview. I don't want an interview. I don't need an interview so, I'm not going into, you know, things about my family and everything else, but this one I said we'll do it for the insiders, Insider Extreme, because I can trust we can pick a journalist that is not in our pocket but does not have an agenda and I will answer the questions that the listener wants to wants to know and a journalist will say, now, wait a minute. Wait a minute, wait a minute. I don't think he answered the question or whatever.
BAKER: You said I can hold your feet to the fire on this. And we're I know I'm just being a masochist here, but I think people can still submit questions. I'll try to look at the ones this afternoon, you know, but if we get buried by another 500, I don't possibly
GLENN: Do you want to do the Twitter thing?
BAKER: Well, you know, we're talking about whether it will be Twitter or e mail mail or telepathic.
