GLENN: And now there was also some good news and some bad news, speaking of people. On Friday I know a lot of people were very upset at me and we talked about it off the air and I'm like, guys, you guys are setting me up, man. We had this whole thing planned about Palin. We had talked about it the night before. That what we were going to do was say that we had bikini photos because the number one search for Palin was like, hot Palin, sex Palin, all of these things. So we were talking about, what are we turning into as a country that that's what you're looking for? So we decided, what we're going to do is we say that we have bikini photos. We don't have any bikini photos. I'm happy to say if I had bikini photos, I wouldn't put them in the newsletter. But what we decided to do is since there were so many people that would be drawn to bikini photos that we would not the bikini photos but all the things that you need to know about Sarah Palin and put it in a way that you could send it to your friends that they're like, oh, bikini photos? And it was kind of a joke but then in the end you learned a lot about Sarah Palin. Dan, you want to give me some of the stats?


DAN: Yes, I do, Glenn.

GLENN: There's good news and bad news.

DAN: Yes.

GLENN: We get to the good news at the very, very, very end.

DAN: So the first page was the warning, you know, click here to get the pictures. And there was a link

GLENN: Click here for Palin bikini pics.

DAN: Warning, you are going to get pictures of Sarah Palin in a bikini here. Compared to the previous most open item on the news, Glenn Beck newsletter which was ironically your butt surgery video, which was huge.

GLENN: My butt?

DAN: The open rate. So anyway, that was six times bigger than your butt surgery video.

GLENN: You've got to be kidding me.

DAN: Six times bigger. Which was humongous.

GLENN: Wasn't the Palin thing, because when I released that video where I talk about suicide and everything else, that was everywhere, it was huge on YouTube. But I don't even think that made it to number one. Wasn't it like number two or number three? Joe was telling me over the weekend my Palin interview was number one on YouTube when they announced. Did you know that?

STU: Yeah, yeah, it was the number one most watched Palin video. And it still was for even after her speech for at least a while. I don't know that it currently is but it's up there. It's over 700,000 views of that interview.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

DAN: Disturbing part about that stat, by the way, Glenn, videos about your butt is only six times less interesting than Sarah Palin and bikinis. There should be more of a separation there.

GLENN: Should be more of a spread, yes, I agree with you, yes.

DAN: But anyway, still a lot bigger. So then you get to the next at the bottom of that page it said, really? She's a governor, you shouldn't be looking at these pictures but if you really want to see them, click here was the next one.

GLENN: Right.

DAN: So 62% of the people who got the warning clicked the link to move forward and see the bikini pictures.

STU: I'm surprised it's only 62%.

GLENN: 38% of the people bailed out, they felt guilty. They are like, oh, you've got to be kidding. It's us, man, you don't fall through. Come on!

DAN: I mean, you've gone through the warning, you've done everything else.

GLENN: You are like, okay, I'm going to make half the effort. You know what I mean? It was like, look, it was so easy. But then all of a sudden it's like Jiminy Cricket pops up. Pinocchio, you can't do that. I want to be a real boy. I want to look at the pictures.

DAN: Mentally you've already committed. You might as well just go ahead and do it. You know what I'm saying? 38%, that was a pretty decent rate there. Then the final page was the last one that had, you know, all the stats and stuff on it, you know, again with no actual bikini picture. But this is where our stats get a little foggy because tens of thousands of people are now passing the final page around on the Internet. So the last page actually increased by 20%. More than the one before.

GLENN: There's more people opening up the last page. Wasn't it I was supposed to go out as a whole thing so you could it doesn't do that, huh?

DAN: Technically just didn't work that way this time. I think if we have more pictures of her in a bikini

GLENN: If you send it to your friends, is the subject line still bikini pics?

STU: Yeah, says Sarah Palin bikini pictures.

GLENN: Can we make that page available so you can send it to your friends?

STU: I think that's the big thing here is you have to get your friends on it.

GLENN: They do.

STU: And the thing about it is the last page because we got some angry e mails on Friday. People really pissed at us, "What if it was your daughter? What would you do then?"

DAN: You are a moral man, Glenn, you know better than this.

GLENN: No, I do. Look, here's the thing, here's the thing. A, I'm not going to come off my stance. She's hot. She's smoking hot and I know, I got a lot of mail from people in the last week, "That's demeaning." No, it's not. She's hot.

DAN: Nothing wrong with that.

GLENN: You can say she's hot.

STU: It's scientifically confirmed, Glenn. You have to say it.

DAN: They say it about Barack Obama.

GLENN: Please stop with that. She's hot. That doesn't mean I want to go and have sex photos of her, although no. It's not that I want I mean, come on. I can recognize that she's hot. I am a man. She's a woman. That's a normal thing.

With that being said, we shouldn't I don't think we should be looking for her bikini photos and that's why I mean, give me some benefit of the doubt, will you? I mean, people who have listened to this program and who have made it through the through Bo Bo and have made it through the first ever on air abortion which, by the way, turned out surprisingly enough to be Al Frankens' first show, which I didn't see it coming. But anybody who went through that, you should give us the benefit of the doubt that we're yes, we're on the edge but we're not going to be sending around bikini

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. I want to make sure we don't have any, right? So I can make this blanket statement?

STU: Yes, you can.

GLENN: Until we get them, we're not going to be sending around Palin bikini pics.

STU: The point of it was at the end

GLENN: I don't really want to see them.

STU: I do. But the point of this was that you'd send this around to your friends, it would get clicked on and at the end there's sort of a Sarah Palin myth busters thing which shows, goes through some of the stupid things that they are passing around about her and how they are not true and how all these you know, there's videos of all these things being, you know, kind of debunked. So I mean, the point of it is that eventually you get to, we lure people into actually hearing good information.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. It is the Fusion of entertainment and enlightenment.

STU: There you go.

Shortly after appearing on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" last Thursday, Los Angeles-based emergency medicine specialist Dr. Simone Gold got a call saying she was fired for speaking out about the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine in a now-banned viral video.

Dr. Gold returned to the radio program Monday to detail exactly what happened, the reason the hospitals gave for her firing, and how they threatened to fire her colleagues as well if she "didn't go quietly."

"Most emergency physicians work at more than one [hospital], as I do, and I've actually been fired from both," she told Glenn. "They told me that I appeared in an embarrassing video, and therefore, I would no longer be welcome to work there ... then they said, if I didn't go quietly and I made a fuss, they would have all the doctors in the group, you know, they'd have to go and they'll get a whole new doctor group."

Dr. Gold said she does not regret speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during the controversial "White Coat Summit" news conference held in Washington, D.C., last week. A video of the news conference quickly went viral on social media before being removed by Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and others for allegedly making false claims related to COVID-19.

"Bring it on," she said. "I want to continue to live in America. I want my children to continue to live in America. I don't want them to grow up in a place like China. When you get to a point where, not only can I not speak as a scientist, as a doctor, for what I know to be absolutely true, but you then want to cancel me and my colleagues, this is not okay. I would much rather fight than not fight ... and I want everybody to know that there are literally millions and millions of Americans who are on our side. Millions. I believe it's the majority."

Glenn then asked Dr. Gold to weigh in on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's new guidelines encouraging schools to reopen in the fall and the left's relentless drive to keep them closed.

"There's no actual scientific debate whatsoever if schools should open. None. There's no scientific debate. There's no serious person who thinks schools shouldn't open. Now, [through] some governors and policy makers, there's pressure being brought to bear on school districts, but there's no actual scientific debate. So it's going to come down to parents pressuring their local school districts to act in a responsible fashion."

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld joined Glenn on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to talk about his new book, "The Plus: Self-Help for People Who Hate Self-Help."

Greg admits he is probably the last person who should write a self-help book. Nevertheless, he offers his offbeat advice on how to save America during what has become one of the most tumultuous times in history, as well as drinking while tweeting (spoiler: don't do it).

He also shares his "evolution" on President Donald Trump, his prediction for the election, and what it means to be an agnostic-atheist.

In this clip, Greg shares what he calls his "first great epiphany" on how dangerous cancel culture has become.

"I believe that cancel culture is the first successful work-around of the First Amendment," he said. "Because freedom of speech doesn't protect me from my career being ruined, my livelihood being destroyed, or me getting so depressed I commit suicide. Cancel culture is the first successful work-around of freedom of speech. It can oppress your speech with the scepter of destruction. We don't have freedom of speech anymore."

Dr. Simone Gold joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to set the record straight about hydroxychloroquine -- what it is, how it works, and the real reason for all the current controversy surrounding a centuries-old medication.

Dr. Gold is a board certified emergency physician. She graduated from Chicago Medical School before attending Stanford University Law School. She completed her residency in emergency medicine at Stony Brook University Hospital in New York, and worked in Washington D.C. for the Surgeon General, as well for the chairman of the Committee on Labor and Human Resources. She works as an emergency physician on the front lines, whether or not there is a pandemic, and her clinical work serves all Americans from urban inner city to suburban and the Native American population. Her legal practice focuses on policy issues relating to law and medicine.

She is also the founder of America's frontline doctors, a group of doctors who have been under attack this week for speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during a news conference held outside the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington D.C.

On the program, Dr. Gold emphasized that the controversy over hydroxychloroquine is a "complete myth."

"Hydroxychloroquine is an analogue or a derivative of quinine, which is found in tree bark. It's the most noncontroversial of medications that there is," she explained.

"It's been around for centuries and it's been FDA-approved in the modern version, called hydroxychloroquine, for 65 years. In all of that time, [doctors] used it for breast-feeding women, pregnant women, elderly, children, and immune compromised. The typical use is for years or even decades because we give it mostly to RA, rheumatoid arthritis patients and lupus patients who need to be on it, essentially, all of their life. So, we have extensive experience with it ... it's one of the most commonly used medications throughout the world."

Dr. Gold told Glenn she was surprised when the media suddenly "vomited all over hydroxychloroquine", but initially chalked it up to the left's predictable hatred for anything President Donald Trump endorses. However, when the media gave the drug Remdesivir glowing reviews, despite disappointing clinical trial results, she decided to do some research.

"[Remdesivir] certainly wasn't a fabulous drug, but the media coverage was all about how fabulous it was. At that moment, I thought that was really weird. Because it's one thing to hate hydroxychloroquine because the president [endorsed] it. But it's another thing to give a free pass to another medicine that doesn't seem that great. I thought that was really weird, so I started looking into it. And let me tell you, what I discovered was absolutely shocking," she said.

According to the mainstream media's COVID-19 narrative, the president is "ignoring" the crisis.

On tonight's "Glenn TV" special, Glenn Beck exposes the media's last four months of political theater that has helped shape America's confusion and fear over coronavirus. And now, with a new school year looming on the horizon, the ongoing hysteria has enormous ramifications for our children, but the media is working overtime to paint the Trump administration as anti-science Neanderthals who want to send children and teachers off to die by reopening schools.

Glenn fights back with the facts and interviews the medical doctor Big Tech fears the most. Dr. Simone Gold, founder of America's Frontline Doctors, stands up to the media's smear campaign and explains why she could no longer stay silent in her fight against coronavirus fear.
