Glenn Beck: Shameless Senator

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.

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
