Argument Against Idiots: Fairness Doctrine

How to win the argument de jour with logic and facts


The issue:

Fairness Doctrine

What the liberal whiners say:

1. 'We need the Fairness Doctrine so that both sides of the issues can be heard on the radio again!'


2. 'You just shout them down when they call, and it's critical to our 1st Amendment that opposing viewpoints are heard in all discussions'


3. 'The one-sided conversations on talk radio are harmful to our Democracy'


4. 'Well, ever since the last Fairness Doctrine was overturned, there's been almost NO liberal voices on the radio, how do you explain that?'

Your winning, logical, reasoned arguments

1. Is your phone broken? Call in and be heard. Callers with contrasting points of view in fact, are almost always taken first.

2. Oh, you mean like the way Nancy Pelosi is hearing from Republicans in Congress? She's absolutely shut them out of every piece of legislation proposed the last six months. Then she has the nerve to say she'll support the "Fairness Doctrine"? Is it more important to have the debate on the radio...or in Congress? Also, I must have missed the conservative points of view on NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, The New York Times, L.A. Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Washington Post, Time, Newsweek...and on and on and on. Talk radio balances the scales.

3. First of all, we don't have a Democracy, we have a Constitutional, Democratic Republic. And what's harmful to it, even dangerous, is deception. News sources that claim to be impartial, but are the opposite. The bias of all the sources above has been proven over and over again. With talk radio, you know what you're getting. The hosts don't claim impartiality. And if you don't like or agree with what you're hearing...you can always turn it off. There's no talk radio Gestapo forcing you to listen.

4. That's right, the market place decided. Liberal radio has been attempted numerous times, and has failed miserably each time. If there was a demand for liberal talk, there would be many liberal talk stations on the dial. Those that currently exist, such as the few Air America affiliates left, have no ratings.  

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
