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.

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.
