Red Eye Robot Theater: Media Matters for America

GLENN: Have you seen the latest from Andrew Breitbart? We should get Andrew on. He's got a new website, bigjournalism.com. Have you seen it?

STU: No, I haven't seen it yet.

GLENN: Oh, yeah, you need to look at it.

STU: The media's not going to like that.

GLENN: No.

STU: No.

GLENN: No. Well, he's got big government. First he had big Hollywood where he was exposing Hollywood. Then he got big government. That's the website that did the expose of

STU: ACORN?

GLENN: ACORN.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: And now he has big journalism. And he has hired people who worked in the media and were tired of it and said, "I can't take it anymore." And now he's got moles. He's been working on this for a while. He has moles inside of journalism that are tipping him off to, and I know some of the things that he's working on. Oh, boy, they are not going to like it. They are not going to like it. Pat, do me a favor. Go down here to, go down here to, what's it like to work at Media Matters? Okay, are you there?

PAT: Uh huh.

GLENN: Click on the audio and then zoom into 109. We'll play this here, play just a little bit. If you can click into it, to 109. Okay, you there? As soon as it clicks

STU: Why don't you instantly have it when he requests it on the air in the middle of a show.

PAT: Really good question, Stu. Why wasn't I anticipating his desire?

STU: His request for 69 seconds into

PAT: Why am I even here?

GLENN: May I say why? Because I am so far ahead of you.

STU: I guess well, yes. Of your thoughts, you are. That's what we're trying to explain.

PAT: Yes, yes.

GLENN: Why can't you read my mind?

PAT: I do believe I have it. Let's see. This?

GLENN: This is from Red Eye. Robot theater. What's it like to work at Media Matters?

VOICE: It's not happy or new with Bush, Hitler in power. But David, Bush is no longer in power. Bush, Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, my father who never loved me, it's all the same. You are right. Your daddy never did love you. Anyway, my father asked me what I do for a living. What did you tell him? I told him that I spent all day watching Fox News and then blog about things that I don't like. When I told him this, he looked very sad. Why? Was he jealous? No. He cried. He said he wished his son had a real job and contributed to society. What a joke. I shall leave an anonymous comment about him on a blog. Anyway, David, I must tell you that George Soros is coming to your basement apartment or, I mean, your office. I love George Soros. I want to have George Soros' baby. I want to be his baby. Then he could breast feed me. I want George Soros to be my dad and my mom so we can spend

GLENN: Stop, stop.

PAT: That is really funny.

GLENN: Okay, that's originally from Red Eye. You can find it on bigjournalism.com.

An op-ed in the Los Angeles Times titled, "What can you do about the Trumpites next door?" is causing quite a stir. In the column, the author, columnist Virginia Heffernan, complains after her Trump-supporting neighbors plowed snow off her driveway without being asked — and "did a great job."

Heffernan asks "how much thanks?" do the neighbors deserve "in the face of this act of aggressive niceness." Just when you think she's joking, Heffernan goes on to compare her Trump-supporting neighbors to Hezbollah, the mafia, and, of course, Nazi sympathizers.

"This is also kind of weird. Back in the city, people don't sweep other people's walkways for nothing," Heffernan wrote. "Hezbollah, the Shiite Islamist political party in Lebanon, also gives things away for free ... And they also demand devotion to their brutal, us-versus-them anti-Sunni cause. Some of us are family, the favors say; the rest are infidels."

She continued, writing, "What do we do about the Trumpites around us? Like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), who spoke eloquently this week about her terrifying experience during the insurrection at the Capitol on Jan. 6, Americans are expected to forgive and forget before we've even stitched up our wounds. Or gotten our vaccines against the pandemic that former President Trump utterly failed to mitigate.

My neighbors supported a man who showed near-murderous contempt for the majority of Americans. They kept him in business with their support. But the plowing."

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck reacted to Heffernan's op-ed, and offered some really helpful advice he said he'd recently received: If you're getting this upset at your friends, family, neighbors — just STOP. Instead of only tolerating the other side, maybe try to understand them. You may find more common ground than you think.

In the past week, independent rapper Tom MacDonald's new song "Fake Woke" soared to No. 1 on iTunes and has now earned a spot on the Billboard Hot 100. Tom's lyrics call out cancel culture and the "fake woke" Americans who support it. Watch his music video here.

Tom joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to discuss why he's speaking out against woke culture, the responses he's gotten, and his fear for the industry moving forward if "opinions become illegal."

The Daily Wire's Ben Shapiro argues that even liberals are becoming too scared to speak out in defense of anyone who dares to disagree with the "woke left" — even if their own freedoms are on the line — and he has experienced it firsthand.

Case in point, hundreds of Politico staffers were enraged and horrified last month after Ben was invited to guest-write the site's "Playbook" political newsletter. Apparently, giving a voice to even one conservative is way too extreme for our modern media.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Ben shed new light on the Politico Playbook blow-up and explained why he believes this will become the new normal in the Democratic Party.

Economist and bestselling author Harry Dent has called the past few economic crashes eerily accurately — and he's now predicting a major "super-bubble" crash will happen by June of this year. He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to talk about what he believes is coming soon for our financial markets.

Harry said the federal reserve and central banks have taken over free market capitalism. "[Central banks] set interest rates. They drive bonds up and interest rates down. They drive stocks up continually... [and] run the economy like a machine," He explained. "And this is what has created this great bubble. And a great disconnect."

Harry said he expects that when the "already ordained" next crash happens, the "entire role of central banks will be questioned." But will this be enough to break the hold of big banks, big companies, and the likes of the Federal Reserve on the economy?
