Glenn Beck's Real Story - How the Liberal Media Works

GLENN: Oh, is it really? Shut up. Hang on, I just got some breaking news from Stu. Really? On the front page?

STU: I don't know that it's the front page. My guess is it's not the front page.


STU: I'm going to say it's slash Glenn, I'm going to guess.

GLENN: No way on the front page of I can't believe it's on We're talking about the media bias episode that I did last night. I did a Real Story on the media bias.

STU: It is official. Congratulations. You're in the big time now. There's Drudge Report and then there's That's where everyone goes.

GLENN: You know, we're not affiliated with I mean, we are. We work for the same company but it's a different -- CNN is a completely different world than Headline News.

STU: Right. And your show isn't actually a -- the way it's set up is weird. At the upper right-hand corner you can see the clip of the media bias.

GLENN: Do you remember the scene, you know, from every Mission Impossible where if you are caught or killed, we disavow any knowledge?

STU: Sure.

GLENN: That's pretty much me. If I'm caught or killed on anything, CNN says, Glenn Beck, we don't know, who, what?

STU: We've always had opening programming at 7:00, 9:00, midnight and 5:00.

GLENN: Oh, that's Headline News. That's another agency. So anyway, you would see that we had Noel Sheppard on last night from Newsbusters and I didn't get a chance to ask you, Noel, on the air about my cycle of how the liberal news media works. Has anyone ever called you from the New York Times and quoted Newsbusters or used the story you guys have done as the basis of a story? Like everybody does with Media Matters?


Noel Sheppard is an economist, business owner, and a featured writer at the prestigious American Thinker. He is also a contributing writer to the Business and Media Institute and a contributing editor for NewsBusters.

SHEPPARD: Not necessarily. I've been quoted by the New York Times at their kind of blog coverage.

GLENN: But never in a serious news story?

SHEPPARD: Nothing in a serious news piece where Noel Sheppard of Newsbusters said the following and --

GLENN: Have you ever noticed a story that you exposed being in the, let's say the editorial of the New York Times?

SHEPPARD: No chance.

GLENN: No chance? Didn't think so. Isn't that weird? But before I get to the stuff you found on Eliot Spitzer, real quick I just want you to cover a couple of things that you covered on the TV show last night. We did a story where I said -- I predicted this was going to happen. I was joking about Obama being the antichrist and these crazy people that write me e-mails. It was picked up by one blog, then it was picked up by another, then it was picked up by Keith Olbermann and then it was picked up by the New York Times in an editorial and it has become fact that I'm a bigot and called, basically called --

SHEPPARD: Even more so today than yesterday, Glenn, because yesterday I told you that if you put in "Glenn Beck, Obama, and antichrist" into Google, into a web search, you would get 744,000 hits. It's now up to 988,000. So let's just call it a million.

GLENN: Yeah, baby!

SHEPPARD: So congratulations. You should be very proud.

GLENN: Any idea how many hits it takes before it becomes absolutely diehard fact that I'm a bigot that calls Barack Obama the antichrist?

SHEPPARD: Well, I'm glad you asked that because actually one of the hits that I saw went to a sports message board. So I think once the people in sports are talking about you as a bigot, well, then it's official. Yeah, that's it.

GLENN: Why not. Hey, did you see the game last night, and have you heard about that bigot that think Obama is the antichrist?

SHEPPARD: It was kind of funny going through the some of the places that depicted you as a bigot as a result and the issue here is -- I mean, we're laughing about this but it's really not funny.

GLENN: Oh, no. No, no, no, it's not funny because it becomes fact.

SHEPPARD: No. I mean, right now you are a confirmed or affirmed bigot because of, as we discussed yesterday, 21 words taken out of an 80-word question that you asked rather comically and even the way you asked that question of Hagee, you were really being derogatory and derisive of people who actually believe that Obama is actually the antichrist. Yet they took this 21 words and now as a result all over the Internet you're a bigot.

GLENN: Right.

SHEPPARD: This is what these two entities, Think Progress and Media Matters, this is what they do 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

GLENN: And you told me they not only took it from an 80 word question down to 20 and the way they edited it. What was that piece of information?

SHEPPARD: Yeah, the little snippet that they took at Think Progress, you said there are people, and they said this about Bill Clinton, that actually believe he might be the antichrist. Well, they even siphoned that down to, there are people, they say this about Bill Clinton, he might be the antichrist. Now, they left out "That actually believe."

GLENN: Right.

SHEPPARD: That's important because when you were saying "That actually believe," you were mocking folks that believe such nonsense.

GLENN: Right, right.

SHEPPARD: But what's interesting here is Think Progress poorly transcribed your words.

GLENN: They didn't poorly -- no. They poorly transcribed -- it was an honest mistake. For those people who actually believe that was an honest mistake, God bless you.

Real quick, Noel, I've only got 30 seconds. Tell me what you found on the media with Eliot Spitzer today.

SHEPPARD: With three evening broadcasts last night, only two of them mentioned that he was a Democrat.

GLENN: Was it NBC or CBS that didn't mention he was a Democrat?

SHEPPARD: CBS did. ABC and NBC did not, although there was kind of a screen cap where you saw a D next to his name very briefly.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah.

SHEPPARD: The other thing that was interesting is none of them discussed the possible connection or the impact to the upcoming presidential election, which is absurd given the fact that he, of course, is from New York and has ties to Hillary Clinton. Nobody discussed that.

GLENN: Right. And he's a superdelegate who's voting for Hillary Clinton. Noel Sheppard from Newsbusters, thank you, sir.

The Omicron variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.

Faced with an oppressive government that literally burned people at the stake for printing Bibles, America's original freedom fighters risked it all for the same rights our government is starting to trample now. That's not the Pilgrim story our woke schools and corporate media will tell you. It's the truth, and it sounds a lot more like today's heroes in Afghanistan than the 1619 Project's twisted portrait of America.

This Thanksgiving season, Glenn Beck and WallBuilders president Tim Barton tell the full story of who the Pilgrims really were and what we must learn from them, complete with a sneak peek at the largest privately owned collection of Pilgrim artifacts.

Saule Omarova, President Joe Biden's nominee for comptroller of the currency, admitted she wants to fight climate change by bankrupting coal, oil, and gas companies. Alarmingly, Biden's U.S. special climate envoy, John Kerry, seemed to agree with Omarova when he said "by 2030 in the United States, we won't have coal" at the COP26 conference in Glasgow, Scotland, earlier this month. But that could end in massive electrical blackouts and brownouts across the nation, BlazeTV host Glenn Beck warned.

Carol Roth, author of "The War On Small Business," joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain what experts say you can do now to prepare your family for potential coming power outages.

"It's interesting. Usually when I go out and talk to experts in areas that are not 100% core to my area of expertise and I say, 'I would like to give you credit.' Usually I get, 'OK, here's how you credit me.' But everyone is like, 'No, no. Let me tell you what happened, just don't use my name.' And this is across the country," Roth said. "This isn't just a California issue, which obviously [California] is leading the nation. But even experts out of Texas, people who are monitoring the electric grid are incredibly concerned about brownouts or blackouts now, already. So forget about 2030."

"You want to have a backup source of power," she continued. "Either a propane, diesel, or combo generator is something that you're going to want to have. Because in a state, for example like Texas, I'm told that once the state loses power, it will take a minimum of two weeks to restore plants back to operations and customers able to use grid power again. So, this isn't something that we've got nine years or whatever to be thinking about. We should be planning and preparing now."

This year marks the four hundredth anniversary of the first Thanksgiving celebrated by the Pilgrims and their Wampanoag allies in 1621. Tragically, nearly half of the Pilgrims had died by famine and disease during their first year. However, they had been met by native Americans such as Samoset and Squanto who miraculously spoke English and taught the Pilgrims how to survive in the New World. That fall the Pilgrims, despite all the hardships, found much to praise God for and they were joined by Chief Massasoit and his ninety braves came who feasted and celebrated for three days with the fifty or so surviving Pilgrims.

It is often forgotten, however, that after the first Thanksgiving everything was not smooth sailing for the Pilgrims. Indeed, shortly thereafter they endured a time of crop failure and extreme difficulties including starvation and general lack. But why did this happen? Well, at that time the Pilgrims operated under what is called the "common storehouse" system. In its essence it was basically socialism. People were assigned jobs and the fruits of their labor would be redistributed throughout the people not based on how much work you did but how much you supposedly needed.

The problem with this mode of economics is that it only fails every time. Even the Pilgrims, who were a small group with relatively homogeneous beliefs were unable to successfully operate under a socialistic system without starvation and death being only moments away. Governor William Bradford explained that under the common storehouse the people began to "allege weakness and inability" because no matter how much or how little work someone did they still were given the same amount of food. Unsurprisingly this, "was found to breed much confusion and discontent."[1]

The Pilgrims, however, were not the type of people to keep doing what does not work. And so, "they began to think how they might raise as much corn as they could, and obtain a better crop than they had done, that they might not still thus languish in misery."[2] And, "after much debate of things" the Pilgrims under the direction of William Bradford, decided that each family ought to "trust to themselves" and keep what they produced instead of putting it into a common storehouse.[3] In essence, the Pilgrims decided to abandon the socialism which had led them to starvation and instead adopt the tenants of the free market.

And what was the result of this change? Well, according to Bradford, this change of course, "had very good success; for it made all hands very industrious, so as much more corn was planted than otherwise would have been."[4] Eventually, the Pilgrims became a fiscally successful colony, paid off their enormous debt, and founded some of the earliest trading posts with the surrounding Indian tribes including the Aptucxet, Metteneque, and Cushnoc locations. In short, it represented one of the most significant economic revolutions which determined the early characteristics of the American nation.

The Pilgrims, of course, did not simply invent these ideas out of thin air but they instead grew out of the intimate familiarity the Pilgrims had with the Bible. The Scriptures provide clear principles for establishing a successful economic system which the Pilgrims looked to. For example, Proverbs 12:11 says, "He that tills his land shall be satisfied with bread." So the Pilgrims purchased land from the Indians and designated lots for every family to individually grow food for themselves. After all, 1 Timothy 5:8 declares, "If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever."

We often think that the battle against Socialism is a new fight sprouting out of the writings of Karl Marx which are so blindly and foolishly followed today by those deceived by leftist irrationality. However, America's fight against the evil of socialism goes back even to our very founding during the colonial period. Thankfully, our forefathers decided to reject the tenants of socialism and instead build their new colony upon the ideology of freedom, liberty, hard work, and individual responsibility.

So, this Thanksgiving, let's thank the Pilgrims for defeating socialism and let us look to their example today in our ongoing struggle for freedom.
