Glenn Beck: Shameless Senator


Senator Stabenow ALSO SEE


Stu Blog - Lack of fairness doctrine unfair to senators bank account

GLENN: So we have a senator now that is talking about the Fairness Doctrine, and we want to go back to this interview with Bill Press where she talks about, you know, this, we need, you know, we need to be able to have fairness on the radio and have people required to tell both sides of the story because we need to protect people because they listen to talk radio. They don't know that there's another side to the story, no. So we're just trying to help them out. And they were having this interview because Obama 1260 AM in Washington had just gone out of business. Who doesn't want to listen to a campaign commercial? Obama 1260 just went out of business in Washington D.C.

So back to the interview with Senator Stabenow and Bill Press.

VOICE: Is it time to bring back the Fairness Doctrine?

SENATOR STABENOW: I think it's absolutely time to pass a standard. Now, whether it's called the Fairness Standard or whether it's called something else, I absolutely think it's time to be bringing accountability to the airwaves. I mean, our new president has talked rightly about accountability and transparency and, you know, that we all --

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop. She's claiming that Barack Obama is talking about accountability, that we're all held accountable for what we've done? He is talking about it, you are right. We're not doing anything about it, but he is talking about it. You are right on that one. And transparency, we got that one, too. Could you be any more transparent?

Here's the thing on talk radio. This is why this is the closest to the truth that you'll ever get -- no, I shun say that. The closest you'll get to the truth as someone really believes it than any other medium and here's why. Because I'll hear exactly what you think unfiltered just on the phone. You call me up.

Now, if you suck, you're not entertaining for the rest of the -- it would be like saying, "You know, Glenn, you take too many entertaining phone calls. Every third call's got to be boring as snot." No, there is a filter there. You've got to be entertaining, got to be alive, you've got to have something important to say. You get on the phone, you call. But nobody's telling you what to say unless you're a strange seminar caller that only seems to happen from the left. But anyway, so you're unfiltered. The reason why people like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity and me, we say what we believe and say what we are is because there's no corporation on top of us. There's no corporation. It's my company. It's my company. If I lose stations, it's my fault. It's my decision. All the time, everything I say, it's my decision. I get to say -- and they've done it to me before: "Glenn, if you continue down this road, you are going to lose stations." Okay. I make the decision. It's not that I'm -- I don't have 600 layers of people and corporations and attorneys and everybody else. And if I'm schlepping for anything, you'll hear it. Nowhere, nowhere else in the media do you get to know somebody as well as you do on talk radio because this is unscripted for three hours a day, every day, five days a week. Nobody in entertainment does this, no one. No one. Unscripted. You know why TV people generally suck on radio? Do you know why attorneys generally suck on radio? They don't know how to do it. They think, "Oh, well, you just get in a room and you talk." No, no, you don't. And talking for three hours a day is harder than it looks. This is a lot harder than television, lot harder. People say, "Oh, it just spills out of you." No, it doesn't. To be able to have a point of view, be able to talk for three hours and to make it entertaining enough for people to want to listen to it, there's the secret combination. They always seem to leave that last one out.

All right. So here she goes.

SENATOR STABENOW: Have to step up and be responsible, and I think in this case there needs to be some accountability and standards put in place.

VOICE: Can we count on you to push for some hearings in the United States Senate this year to bring these owners in and hold them accountable?

SENATOR STABENOW: I have already had some discussion with colleagues and I feel like that's going to happen, yeah.

GLENN: Okay. So now why does she feel so passionately about this? Has she been wronged by talk radio? Why is she so passionate? I'd like to introduce you to her husband. Her husband, the co-founder and former CEO of the liberal progressive Democracy Radio. Her husband, the Executive Vice President of Air America. Her husband, who left Air America radio, now heads Talk USA radio based in Washington, D.C. I'm wondering if Obama 1260 was one of his stations. Her husband is an executive at liberal radio! I mean, you can't make this stuff up! How is she possibly trying to put, "We just need some fairness and some transparency." Did she at any time say, "Look, I'm really not the person to talk to because I'm biased. My husband started Air America! My husband's lost three jobs here because he just can't seem to get it done! I've got to listen to this loser in bed every night going, nobody will listen to my stations. I don't think I'm the best judge. Maybe it's just me." Jeez. But if you'd like, you can call her for the other side of the fence on this one because you don't hear it any place else. So this is just my opinion. If you would like to ask her what her side of the story is, you can call her. The number is 202-224-4822. That's Senator Stabenow, and you just say, "Hey, I heard Bill Press talk about you and, well, I actually heard about it on the Glenn Beck program. So wow, it's almost like it was balanced there. I'm just wondering what your side is. 202-224-4822. Remember, be kind. She's had -- she's honestly, not only is she living with a guy who just can't seem to make radio work, she's like, "I'm dragging this bum around. I mean, he can't keep a job." But also her husband was, well, all right, he was caught up in a prostitution ring. They caught him in a hotel with a prostitute having sex for 150 bucks. So please go easy on Senator Stabenow. She's just got to get back to the work of the American people.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
