GLENN: Try this story from the Politico: If you want to score a meeting with Representative Jim McDermott, know this. His schedule other office manager Elizabeth Becton is to be addressed by her full name. Not Liz or any other variant. An executive assistant at McBee Strategic recently learned this the hard way. A few weeks ago the assistant e‑mailed Becton seeking a meeting with McDermott and a client J.P. Morgan Chase. Days later the assistant checked back and unfortunately began the e‑mail with the disrespectful, "Hi, Liz." Becton curtly replied in the reply e‑mail only, "Who's Liz?" When the assistant wrote back with an apology, Becton turned up the heat. "I do not go by Liz. Where did you get this Liz information?" The back‑and‑forth went on for 19 e‑mails with the assistant apologizing six times if she had offended Becton. Becton lectured in the 19 e‑mails about name‑calling. Becton told the assistant that if someone said using Liz was acceptable, then they are not your friend. And if I wanted you to call me by any other name, I would have offered you that name. Plus, "It's rude when people don't even ask permission and t ake all sorts of liberties with your name." She added, "Please do not ever call me by that nickname again." Well, I am sorry, Elizabeth, Liz, Lizzie, Beth, Betsy, Betty, egomaniac, out‑of‑control bureaucrat! Liz! We're paying your salary. I need to see the congressman, Lizzie! In any other business in America, Lizzie would be fired. In any other business that would be unacceptable. In any other business you'd say this person has a personality disorder. This person is about to go postal! You took a ‑‑ excuse me. Hang on just a second. Liz, can you come in here for a second? "Don't call me..." Lizzie, come into my office. "Yes?" Did you just lecture in 19 e‑mails about your name to a client of mine? "Yes." Rational response: Why? No, no. Rational response is why? Is there something that I don't know? "He's been hassling me, he's been following me. He's been... whatever, he's been..." okay. Then I'll take care of it. The response was, "People don't call me Liz." Okay, Liz, you're fired. And I'm going to call security. In fact, I have HR here because I'm a little afraid of you, Lizzie. The last person that I know that had the name Liz was Lizzie Borden and that didn't end well! You'd fire this person. But they don't fire. They don't fire because they're better than you. They know. They know. "Riffraff that I have to answer the phone. Oh, jeez, the people are calling again. Don't you dare call me Liz." You're a psycho, Liz, a psycho.

Stu, why don't you call. Do you have his number? Can you get congressional McDermott? Is that his name, McDermott from Washington State? Jim McDermott, Seattle. I'm just assuming he's from the Seattle area. I don't know where the seventh district is. Seattle?

STU: Yes, it is Seattle.

GLENN: Call Jim McDermott's office right now and tell them we won put up with this Lizzie stuff.

STU: We mean business with full names.

GLENN: Call them. I would like to see if we can get Liz on the air. Just try.

STU: My guess is on Betsy isn't going to come on.

GLENN: Just try. Just call. Ask if Betty is there. Is Betty there? Betsy. Beth. Lizzie, Liz. I don't know, what do you call ‑‑ oh, Elizabeth, is she there? See if Elizabeth is there and then call her Lizzie. "So Lizzie, what do you say, babe?" Do you have the number?

STU: Yes, I do. Is this their Seattle office or is this her Washington office? His Washington office?

GLENN: I don't know. I would imagine that it's an executive assistant. So I would imagine it's Washington. Yeah, it would be the capital, the House.

STU: I don't have the Seattle number. Just give me a minute here.

GLENN: We'll take a break and then we'll call Lizzie, see how she's doing, see what's going on in her life. Wonder if anybody's talked to her. Wonder ‑‑ you know what it is? We just don't understand her. We don't understand what's going on with her life. We don't know all the struggles that she's had to put up with, people making fun of her name and stuff or whatever it is, making fun of her name or not making fun of her name. I don't know. Is she a minority? We should find out if she's a minority. Maybe she's handicapped. Is she handicapped? Does she have special needs of any kind? Because all of those things take a play. Maybe she's ‑‑ you know what? Maybe she's dyslexic. Is it possible that she was dyslexic and people teased her on that? I don't know. One leg shorter than the other? She has one brown eye and one blue eye. I don't know. Cryst al Gayle should have been in prison for what poor Lizzie went through her whole life with one brown eye and one blue eye and that song that was repeatedly singing over and over and over during my childhood, doesn't it make my brown eyes blue, it stopped with me. I've only got one brown eye and one blue eye! Crystal Gayle must be stopped! Oh, her life must have been a hell. Poor Lizzie.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
