Libs attacking Glenn

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.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
