GLENN: There is a new call for an end to hate speech in talk radio and cable news. It will also then go a step further and ask that you look into some of the websites on the Internet.

PAT: Going to surprise you who's involved.

GLENN: Who's involved in this. 20 different organizations or is it 30 different organizations.

PAT: A bunch, but the front and center one is really going to — it's going to shock you to your core.

GLENN: Well, I would be, I would be shocked if I heard Free Press was involved.

PAT: You would be shocked?

GLENN: I would be.

PAT: First name mentioned.

GLENN: Free Press?

PAT: Prepare to be shocked.

GLENN: That is shocking!

PAT: I know, I know.

GLENN: Shocking. Free Press, in case you don't know, that is a socialist/Marxist organization. They claim to be a socialist/Marxist organization that has now the, I believe the assistant to Genachowski, the guy at the FCC is from Free Press. You now have a new member of the State Department appointed this weekend at Free Press, from Free Press. You have —

PAT: They have no pull in the administration, no pull in the administration.

GLENN: Oh, no, zero pull in the administration at all. These are the people that want net neutrality. This is a dangerous organization.

PAT: Yeah, it's really bad.

GLENN: A dangerous organization.

PAT: And somebody called the Center for Media Justice.

GLENN: Center for Media Justice, media justice.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: So like social justice.

PAT: We have environmental.

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: We have

GLENN: Economic.

PAT: Economic

GLENN: We have social.

PAT: Social, and now media justice.

GLENN: Media justice.

PAT: We got justice coming out the Ying Yang here.

GLENN: No justice, no peace. You know, that phrase has never sounded more ominous, no justice, no peace. Okay. Who else?

PAT: Let's see. The Benton Foundation. I don't know anything about them. And Media Alliance.

GLENN: Oh, Media Alliance. So now you have, you have an investigation for the end of hate speech in talk radio and cable television and some Internet.

PAT: Yeah, and they are arguing about anonymity on the web, giving ammunition to those who would spread hate and so they want to stomach anonymity on the Internet as well.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. You want to make sure that —

PAT: Everybody's named.

GLENN: Everybody's named.

PAT: Want their addresses, phone number.

STU: By the way, guys, you were totally wrong if you were trying to insinuate that the Benton Foundation had any problems. Listen to this. The Benton Foundation works to ensure that media and telecommunications serve the public interest and enhance our democracy.

GLENN: Oh.

PAT: Oh.

STU: They pursue this mission by seeking policy solutions that support the values of access, diversity and equity.

GLENN: Oh.

PAT: Oh, diversity and equity.

GLENN: Is there any justice?

STU: They don't — let's see.

PAT: Please tell me they want justice, too, media justice especially.

GLENN: Social justice, media justice?

STU: They just want to demonstrate the value of media and telecommunications for improving the quality of life for all.

PAT: Of course they do.

GLENN: That is so great. That is — no, I love that. Now, this is a — this is one attack. Then you have the government's attack on Friday, released Friday. When does the government dump stories that they don't want anybody to report on?

PAT: Tuesdays, Tuesday afternoon.

GLENN: No, no, uh uh. Because you could read about it

PAT: Monday morning at, like, 10:00.

GLENN: No, because then you could see it all week and you would see it in the newspapers and then the newspapers chew on it all week.

PAT: So they wait until Wednesday?

GLENN: No. Uh uh. Friday. You know what was special about last Friday? It was before a three day weekend.

PAT: Really?

GLENN: Yeah. Yeah, that's what usually — for instance, Van Jones. Van Jones, him leaving the White House and the whole story? Because it was released on Saturday night, it missed the Sunday paper and only got just a little story in Monday's because it was already an old story by Monday, of course. And that was a holiday. Strange. Now the FTC, the Federal Trade Commission, is looking into bringing in AmeriCorps and training AmeriCorps as journalists.

PAT: That's such a good idea.

GLENN: It is. It is.

PAT: Oh, man, that's a good idea.

GLENN: You know who had that idea?

PAT: Yes!

GLENN: Who had that idea?

PAT: Free Press!

GLENN: Free Press had that idea?

PAT: If I'm not mistaken.

GLENN: That is crazy! I mean, we were just talking about — hmmm?

PAT: When they said this?

VOICE: We need policies to support media, and I hate to break it to some of you, but the government is going to have to be involved.

PAT: Huh.

VOICE: So what if instead we took a few AmeriCorps jobs and gave them to news gathering organizations.

GLENN: That is so strange.

PAT: How weird.

GLENN: That guy who said that, he is the guy now working at the State Department appointed this weekend.

PAT: Stop it.

GLENN: No, I won't. It's true.

PAT: This is a small world. What a small, small, small world.

GLENN: What a strange coincidence. It's a small world, after all.

PAT: The Obama administration seems to know everybody action don't they?

GLENN: They do.

PAT: And just kind of circle them into their little inner circle.

GLENN: Well, there's only so many people you can pick from.

PAT: I guess so.

GLENN: It is so weird. So you've got the hate speech investigation, you have, of course, the FTC saying that they just think AmeriCorps should be involved now.

PAT: Good idea.

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.

It's high time to leave the partisan politics behind and focus on the facts about face masks and whether or not they really work against COVID-19.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck spoke with Drs. Scott Jensen and George Rutherford about the scientific evidence that proves or disproves the effectiveness of mask wearing to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Then, Dr. Karyln Borysenko joined to break down where the massive political divide over masks came from in the first place.

"I think if we were to talk about this a couple months ago, I might have said, 'Well, there's the science of masks, and there's the emotions of masks.' But, unfortunately, there's something in between," Jensen said. "I would have thought that the science of masks would have to do with the physics of masks, so I did a video a couple months ago where I talked about the pore side of a cotton mask or a surgical mask."

He explained that properly worn masks can help reduce the spread of virus particles, but cautioned against a false-sense of security when wearing a mask because they are far from providing complete protection.

"If you have a triple-ply mask, the pore size will end up being effectively five microns. And five microns, to a COVID-19 virus particle, is 50 times larger. That's approximately the same differential between the two-inch separation between the wires of a chain-link fence, and a gnat," Jensen explained.

"But now what we're seeing is if we have some collision of COVID-19 viral particles with the latticework of any mask ... if you're breathing out or breathing in and the viral particles collide with the actual latticework of a mask, I think intuitively, yes, we can reduce the amount of virus particles that are going back and forth."

Dr. Rutherford said masks are essential tools for fighting COVID-19, as long as you wear them correctly. He laid out the three main reasons he believes we should all be wearing masks.

"So, we're trying to do three things," he said. "First of all, we're trying to protect the people around you, in case you are one of the 60% of people who have asymptomatic infection and don't know it. The second thing we're trying to do is to protect you. The third thing we're trying to do is, if you get infected, you'll get infected at a lower dose, and then you're less likely to develop symptoms. That's the threefer."
