Glenn Beck: Battle of the Headlines




Surprise; Obama wins yet another round to keep his record perfect...

GLENN: Well, here we go, the Battle of the Headlines. This is, every day we get together at this time, we just take the headlines out of the paper, just different stories about Obama and McCain and we see who's won every day. So far it's been very close, has it not, every --

STU: It's a tight battle, as you know. It's a divided country between two parties and both these parties are going back and forth.

GLENN: You can never ever, you know, decide something on just one day's headlines. You have to look at the trend. And so far the trend, if I may go to our color commentary, Steve Burguiere, Stu, what does it look like shaping up in the long run here?

STU: Well, as you know this is a marathon, not a sprint, and it's very important that people understand that it goes back and forth. That, you know, it goes one way one way, goes the other way another day.

GLENN: Right.

STU: As you know right now you've got John McCain in the middle -- he's got a very popular issue. The issue on everyone's mind is gas prices, drilling, he's on the right side for public opinion. So you'd think he would do very well.

GLENN: But I'm asking what, what does the trend look like so far?

STU: 100% Obama.

GLENN: Battle of the Headlines, the headline war every day. Now, what are we expecting today, Stu?

STU: Exactly what I said, Glenn. Energy is the focus of people. John McCain is on the right side of it and public opinion. He should be doing very well on the headlines.

GLENN: Here we go, Barack Obama, headline number one. For Obama, a first step is not a misstep. Headline number two, Obama gains support for pullout. Headline number three, Iraqis back Obama plan. And headline number four, diary, Barack Obama's world tour from the BBC.

Well, now we're at the half. That looks like a pretty strong showing here from Barack Obama.

STU: Yeah. Interesting, they really have reviewed his trip as a world tour very well, but I think that that's going to be balanced here by the fact that McCain has much more public policy and foreign policy experience.

GLENN: Headline number one, McCain blames Obama for higher gas prices. Headline number two, John McCain vies for extra press coverage. Headline number three, McCain, kneecapped by Maliki. And headline number four, never underestimate McCain, but...

VOICE: Once again Barack Obama comes out on top, glowing headline after glowing headline. Gee, what a freaking surprise. No, seriously, what's next? Glenn's got a hairpiece? Thanks for the update.

GLENN: Never underestimate McCain but... I don't think I've ever seen that as a headline. A but... it's like, never underestimate McCain, we can't run with that. "What do we do? But a but... after that.

STU: What would you say comes after the but...? You should this time?

GLENN: Never underestimate McCain but... this time he's out.

STU: But this time you're overestimating him?

GLENN: It's unbelievable.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
