Glenn Beck: Media worse than thought

GLENN: Now, why is it that the media doesn't report things? We have long suspected that the media in fact, I have you know what? Let me take it here. I have told you in the past that I didn't believe in a media conspiracy, that I didn't believe that people were calling each other. How many times have you heard me say this? That I didn't believe that the media was, you know, (phone ringing). "Hello. Dan Rather." Oh, sorry, Dan, I got the wrong number. I was calling somebody I thought was important. But the media is not calling each other and... (phone ringing). "Hello. Dan Rather." Oh, jeez, sorry, Dan. I don't know why I keep calling you back. I just thought I was calling somebody that had actually a voice that people would listen to.

That the media is not calling each other up to plot and plan exactly what their next move is (phone ringing). "Hello. Katie Couric." Oh, jeez, I'm sorry. I was trying to reach Dan Rather. He had more juice than you.

But I was wrong. I was wrong. And I told you that I would always correct my mistakes. It was the moment of the greatest peril for then Senator Barack Obama's political career. In the heat of the presidential campaign, videos surfaced of Obama's pastor, Reverend Jeremiah Wright angrily denouncing whites, the U.S. Government and America itself. Obama had once bragged closest to right, now the black preacher's rhetoric was threatening to torpedo Obama's campaign. The crisis reached a howling pitch mid April 2008. ABC News debate moderated by Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopoulos. Gibson asked a question of Obama why it had taken him so long, nearly a year since Wright's remarks became public to disassociate himself from them. Stephanopoulos asked, do you think Reverend Wright loves America as much as you do? Watching this at home were members of journalists. It is a list serve. What is a list serve?

STU: It's kind of like a shared e mail sort of thing. It's not open to the public. It's a closed loop like, you know, sort of discussion that you can with people, sort of the safety tree.

GLENN: Right. It's like a chat room.

STU: Yeah, kind of.

GLENN: But it's closed.

STU: Yeah, it's like an e mail list server.

GLENN: Comprised of several hundred liberal journalists as well as like minded professors and activists. Tough questioning from ABC anchors left many of them outraged. George Stephanopoulos, quoting, fumed Richard Kim of the nation as being a disgusting little rat snake. Others went further. According to records obtained by the Daily Caller at several points during the 2008 presidential campaign, a group of liberal journalists took radical steps to protect their favorite candidate. Employees of news organizations including Time, Politico not a surprise there the Huffington Post, Baltimore Sun, the Guardian, Salon and New Republic participated in outpourings of anger over how Obama had been treated in the media and in some cases plotted to fix this damage. In one instance Spencer Ackerman of the Washington Independent urged his colleagues to deflect attention from Obama's relationship with Wright by changing the subject. Pick one of Obama's conservative critics, Ackerman wrote. Quote: Fred Barnes, Karl Rove, who cares, and call them racists, end quote. Michael Tomasky, a writer from The Guardian also tried to rally his fellow members of journalists, quote: Listen, folks. In my opinion all we have to do, we have to do what we can to kill ABC and this idiocy in whatever venues we have. This isn't about defending Obama. This is about how the mainstream media kills any chance of discourse that actually serves the people, end quote. I'm trying to understand that. This is about how the mainstream media kills any chance of discourse that actually serves the American so in other words, he's claiming that by asking Jeremiah Wright a question, that is the mainstream media, killing any discourse?

STU: Yeah, focusing on things that don't matter to the American people.

PAT: And he's apparently the arbiter of what discourse should and should not happen in this country? That's interesting.

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."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.
