PAT: Glenn, I'm in the weather center now and we have

VOICE: And now, scattered showers of journalism.

GLENN: Let me go to now our journalistic weatherman Pat Gray who is sensing some sort of

PAT: Scattered showers breaking out.

GLENN: Really?

PAT: A little journalism occurred yesterday during the press conference, the White House press conference with Robert Gibbs.

GLENN: All right, let's see what's on the radar.

Q: During the campaign, President Obama on numerous occasions said words to the effect of, quoting one, “all of this will be done on C SPAN in front of the public.” Do you agree that the President is breaking an explicit campaign promise?

GIBBS: You know Chip, we covered this yesterday and I would refer you to yesterday’s transcript.

Q: (Inaudible) today?

GIBBS: The answer I would give today is similar to the one…

Q: There was an intervening meeting in which it’s been reported that the President, the President pressed the leaders in Congress to take the fast track approach to skip the conference committee. Did he do that?

GIBBS: The President wants to get a bill to his desk as quickly as possible.

Q: In spite of the fact that he promised to do this on C SPAN?

GIBBS: I would refer you to what we talked about in this room yesterday.

Q: But the President, in this meeting yesterday, pressed for something that’s in direct violation of a promise he made during the campaign.

GIBBS: And I addressed that yesterday.

Q: Well does the President believe it would be more helpful if this process were more transparent, that the American people could see…

GIBBS: How many stories do you think NBC has done on this?

Q: Speaking for myself, hundreds…

GIBBS: Hundreds?

Q: That’s not the issue, the issue is whether he broke an explicit campaign promise.

GIBBS: So the answer is hundreds. Is that correct?

Q: Well that has nothing to do with it. I deal with the information, however much or little of it there is. I’m saying, would people benefit from more information?

GIBBS: Have you lacked information in some of those stories? Do you think you’ve reported stuff that was inaccurate based on the lack of information?

Q: Democrats ran against the very sort of process that is being employed in this health care debate.

GIBBS: We had this discussion yesterday. I answered this yesterday. Is there anything else?

GLENN: Listen to this, man.

GIBBS: And he will do some today. Do you have another comment? Okay.

PAT: Even CBS and NBC are getting fed up. I mean, they actually pressed him. They actually pressed him.

GLENN: This is the time that I warned, and we're not there yet but we're approaching it. We are approaching it. This is the time that I warned that Barack Obama is a man behind the mask. And at some point like Mission Impossible, he is going to pull off the proverbial mask. He's not a guy who has been I mean, you see him. Whenever anybody pushes him just a little bit, he goes crazy. He goes nuts. The press is going to start pushing and pushing and pushing. His poll numbers are down. His programs are starting to fall apart and be exposed. I mean, just look at the papers every day. Look at the front page of Drudge every single day. How many times do you not read the front page of Drudge and just go, oh, my gosh. It's all coming apart. You know, play this. Play this again. I mean, play the audio again. I think we need to add one thing because this is go ahead. Here's Gibbs. As you're hearing this...

VOICE: During the campaign the president on numerous occasions

GLENN: I mean, if we need to add a sound track, it would be this.

VOICE: all of this will be done on C Span in front of the public. Do you agree that the president is breaking an explicit campaign promise?

GIBBS: You know Chip, we covered this yesterday and I would refer you to yesterday’s transcript.

Q: (Inaudible) today?

GIBBS: The answer I would give today is similar to the one…

Q: There was an intervening meeting in which it’s been reported that the President, the President pressed the leaders in Congress to take the fast track approach to skip the conference committee. Did he do that?

GIBBS: The President wants to get a bill to his desk as quickly as possible.

GLENN: Isn't it kind of like, Gibbs is kind of like, "I think there might be some sharks in the water. Is that a fin I saw?" Pretty soon you just expect Gibbs just to go down behind the podium just kind of like... and pop back up. (Laughing). I mean, it is and it's good to see.

PAT: It is.

GLENN: That the press is starting to actually do their job, and it's almost like, you know, they're a little concerned every time that they meet the press. It's not like, hey, it was good to see you last night. Wasn't that movie great? It was so great you guys taking me out to avatar last night. I mean, it's nice so see that there is a little pushback.

PAT: And Gibbs isn't used to it. So when it happens, he really shows his true colors. Like, what? I'm not telling you anything.

STU: When you say true colors, do you mean incompetence?

PAT: Yes.

STU: Because he is not good at the position he holds.

PAT: He's awful.

GLENN: He's not been challenged, either.

STU: Right.

GLENN: None of these people in this administration.

STU: Some of them have, some of them have challenged Gibbs.

GLENN: But not together. They have not ganged, not gang attacked.

PAT: No, it's been mostly Jake Tapper and, you know, Major Garrett.

STU: Scattered showers. Yeah, Major Garrett definitely.

GLENN: The question is, the question is when a press conference becomes hostile or when a press conference becomes like it should be, like it even was under George W. Bush, when they actually start to ask this president and back him up to a wall and not allow him to get away with blatant lies, how does this president react? We've never seen him in that situation before.

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."
