GLENN: From high above Times Square in Midtown Manhattan, third most listened to show in all of America. Hello, you sick twisted freak. Let me go to Tim in Atlanta right off the bat and because he was he's been watching the mainstream media this morning and he says he's frustrated. Hello, Tim, welcome.

CALLER: Hey, Glenn. Thank you so much for taking my call.

GLENN: Sure.

CALLER: I am completely blown away this morning by the lack of coverage not only of the 9/12 march that had an estimated half a million plus, march on Washington plus the lack of coverage of the ACORN scandal. How are we going to overcome the media?

GLENN: This is so great, Tim, this is so great. You don't have to worry about it. The media is pounding nail after nail after nail into their own coffin right now. The American people are waking up. It doesn't matter. Even if the Washington Post wouldn't have covered it, everybody in Washington that needs to know, the people are awake, they know. It doesn't matter if it was covered at all. The people that needed to hear that message, believe me, heard the message. If you go overseas, you start to look at some real numbers, overseas the London Telegraph is now saying that the number is over a million.

CALLER: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: They quote a source from the Park Service, the National Park Service saying that it is the largest march on Washington ever.

CALLER: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: And they also quote somebody in the White House saying that the White House was shocked at the number. Now, you're not going to get that in the mainstream press here in America, but that's what the Daily Mail is reporting today.

Now, everybody in Washington knows, and the great thing is America now understands. America now knows that America is awake. It is the best news ever. America is awake.

So don't worry about what you see in the mainstream media. Start keeping track of who you can trust and who you can't. You know, I said, when was it, last Wednesday maybe when this ACORN stuff started to come out, I wondered why nobody would cover the Van Jones story when it happened. I asked for answers. I just wanted somebody to answer the question: How much power does this guy have, who let him into the White House, what does all of this mean for the policies of the president. If he's denied the communist ties and everything else, then let us know. How many times on the air did I say please, I want to be wrong? Do you remember that, Pat?

PAT: Over and over again.

GLENN: I mean, you and I talked about it afterwards. I don't think I've ever heard anybody on television say I want to be wrong, please, give me the other answer. Nobody would. Nobody did it. So Van Jones goes away in the middle of the night. Nobody reported. I think the Washington Post reported one story on it. New York Times only reports the story that he's gone. None of the and nobody still today is actually reporting on the communist thing, none of them.

PAT: They just don't buy it. Oh, yeah, sure. If they mention it at all, which they usually don't, it was like, oh, he was communist in the Nineties, he's changed his mind.

GLENN: When?

PAT: When.

GLENN: I'd like to know when. Show me the videotape, show me. Okay, the next thing is then we started on ACORN. ACORN, we have and wait until tomorrow. I know there's a videotape out today that's showing the corruption in New York, and we're going to play some of the videotape for you today. But we're not going to spend a lot of time on it because tomorrow will boggle your mind. It will take a full hour on television tomorrow just to go through the tape and that's not the whole tape. And you will not believe what I'll show you tomorrow.

So we started showing this. I said, I think it was last Wednesday or Thursday, I don't remember what day, I always knew that the press was biased but now, America, you need to understand that the press is complicit. The press is so deeply in bed that there is, there is no bias here. Bias is two people watch an accident and one says, "No, the car no, no, no, that guy, he swerved and he hit him first." And the other guy goes, "No, I saw it from a different angle; I'm telling you it happened the other way." There's bias, and that bias comes from your life experience and everything else. This isn't bias. This is complicit. There's no other way to read this. When you look at the ACORN thing how is it? Tax dollars are at stake. The IRS should be investigating them. The teachers union has given $1.2 million to ACORN, I think just this year. Now, we have ACORN officials in three cities now is it three or is it four? Three cities. I think three cities.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Three cities, going after where a guy dressed as a pimp and a woman dressed as a hooker go in and say, hey, I'm a pimp and I'm a hooker and we need to buy a house. They're using tax dollars to advise them on how to cheat on their taxes and be able to get a loan for their house so they can set up a brothel of 13 year old girls who are illegal aliens from El Salvador. And the news doesn't report on it. That's not "I grew up in a different circle of friends and I have a different point of view." That is "I'm lying to you. I will no longer I cannot be trusted to tell you the truth."

Do you remember I've been saying for how many months the paradigm is about to change. Gang, we're here. The paradigm is changing right now and unless the mainstream media begins to understand this, unless the mainstream media understands, there are only going to be there's only going to be one side standing in the end of this. There's only going to be the side of the mainstream media that is currently feeding you not bias but out and out lies, complicit lies. They're going to be the ones standing in the end, or people that are telling you the truth on both sides, for and against, the people who are willing to say, "Okay, look, I was wrong on this one but I'm right on this one." It's either going to be some sort of a spooky 1984 world that we live in where 2 plus 2 equals 7 if they tell you to, or we're going to restore this thing. And I am betting on the restoration of this country because the truth will always set you free. The only thing that will stop it is an event. The only thing that will stop it is some nut job doing something and this government making the case that, well, we've just, we've got to take control, we've got to take control. We've got to take the guns, we've got to take control, we've got to do this, we've got to do that. Some nut this is why, you know, the media can say whatever they want. "Oh, Glenn Beck, he's..." did you see the story in, what was it, the New York Daily News yesterday, Stu, where the spooky thing about Glenn Beck is he's stirring his people up into anger and hatred and he just wants them to shoot people. Did you see that go ahead. Somewhere between 50,000 and two million people? I know that's a hard window to figure out how much it was. Somewhere between 50,000 and two million people came to the mall on Saturday? Did you notice there was no violence?

STU: Well, there were all those shootings.

GLENN: No.

STU: There was the bazookas? Remember that bazooka attack?

GLENN: The streets of Washington D.C. probably have never been safer in the last 20 years than they were this weekend.

PAT: Or cleaner.

GLENN: Cleaner.

PAT: Everybody cleaned up after themselves.

STU: Well, but all those Chinese throwing stars, the attacks.

GLENN: No, they didn't have that.

STU: That didn't happen?

PAT: No, they didn't have that yesterday, uh uh.

GLENN: So don't worry about the media. The media you know what? I

PAT: Those are cool, though.

GLENN: I felt

PAT: I like Chinese throwing stars.

GLENN: I felt about a month ago there is no need to hype, there's no need to be always err I've said this to the staff. When in doubt, leave it out. If we don't know, if we can't verify it. You want stuff taken out of context or what may have been taken out of context on things like Van Jones? Oh, I could have done 1400 hours on that. When in doubt, leave it out. And the reason why we did that is because I have a strong impression that the truth will set you free. And these people will implode on they are going to collapse on their own weight. The media is going to collapse on its own weight. NBC is going to go down. They are just, they are going to go down either that, or they're going to be the state run media. But they are never going to

STU: Going to be? Like what would they need to do to make themselves more would they need to be

GLENN: They would have to erase everybody else's freedom of speech and the government just seizes control.

STU: So you are saying that

GLENN: Maybe BBC1.

STU: So they just need to be the only media. They wouldn't have to change their coverage. They would just

GLENN: They are the only media, right. So they are betting, I think, on you know, I don't know. I don't know what they are betting on. But they are either going to go down all the way, because they are not going to change their ways.

On "Glenn TV" this week, Megyn Kelly, host of the "Megyn Kelly Show," told Glenn Beck she believes the Democrats' talk of unity is "all nonsense" and forecasted the "death of journalism" under a Biden administration.

Megyn cited President Joe Biden's unwillingness to make concessions that would help unify Democrats and Republicans as an example of how much he actually cares about unity, and added that, while she's all for lowering the political temperature in America, she also believes there are some personal freedoms that are worth fighting for.

"What's happening substantively is worth fighting for and it's not going to go away just because [Biden] gave a nice speech," Megyn said.

"I will object. I will protect my family and what I think is right over Joe Biden's need for unity, which is false anyway. 'Unify behind my agenda' is not a real call for unity," she added.

Megyn said she believes the Left has reached too far and "awakened a sleeping giant" in reference to the silent majority who should speak up, speak out, and refuse to be silenced any longer.

As the Senate prepares for former President Trump's second impeachment trial, many are asking whether it's constitutional to try a president after leaving office. Alan Dershowitz, lawyer and host of the of "The Dershow," joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about the legal battles Trump still faces.

Dershowitz said he believes the Senate doesn't have the authority to convict Trump, now that he's a private citizen again, and thus can't use impeachment to bar him from running for office again.

"The Constitution says the purpose of impeachment is to remove somebody. He [Trump] is out of office. There's nothing left to do.
It doesn't say you can impeach him to disqualify him for the future. It says, if you remove him you can then add disqualification, but you can't just impeach somebody to disqualify them," Dershowitz said.

"The Senate can't try ordinary citizens. So once you're an ordinary citizen, you get tried only in the courts, not in the Senate. So it's clearly unconstitutional," he added.

Dershowitz, who served on Trump's legal team during the first impeachment trial, also discussed whether he thinks Trump is legally (or even just ethically) responsible for the Capitol riot earlier this month, and whether those engaging in violence could be considered "domestic terrorists."

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.
