GLENN: Two words: Thank you. What an amazing, amazing weekend. Thank you. Thank you for trusting me with your time. Thank you for trusting me with your hard earned money to be able to get across the country. Thank you for coming in, what is the media saying? Tens of thousands. We're still waiting for the real number. We have obviously you've seen them overhead shots. We have we'll show you tonight the comparisons of crowds in the past. The number is at least 500,000. The high estimate I have heard is a million. I don't personally believe that. I believe that it could be as high as 650, maybe 700, but I think the number is probably closer to 5 to 600,000.

PAT: You know it's big, though, when even MSNBC is citing the number 500,000. Scarborough said it, what, three times this morning?

GLENN: Yeah, this morning.

PAT: In the report they are spending all kinds of time on this item.

GLENN: So you know that and you know that it's big when no one will print the number. Only CBS News said it was 87,000, which is just I mean, look at the pictures.

PAT: Ridiculous.

GLENN: 87,000? Wait, how did you even come up with that? It's 23,471.

STU: It's insane. If you had 87,000 people there, then the capacity, the largest crowd you could possibly have is, what, 100,000? We've quoted how many different rallies there that have happened over the years that have been 200,000 and 300,000 and 400,000. It's insulting and whoever made that estimate literally should shutter the doors of their company, terrible.

GLENN: If you look at the photos, you go to the Restoring Honor page, the Glenn Beck Restoring Honor page and look for the photos and click on the, what is it, the five photos of just the crowd, what is incredible is when you see the aerial photo, understand that there is that the trees are blocking a lot of the crowd. So if you go one, two, three, four, five photos down, you see the beginning of what's under the trees. And what's under the trees is remarkable. Absolutely remarkable.





8/28 Photo Gallery: How many people attended 8/28? Take a look for yourself...

PAT: I mean, there were 87,000 people at 6:00 in the morning, you know? They didn't start until 10:00.

GLENN: There were thousands the night before.

PAT: Yep.

GLENN: And we haven't even had a chance to talk about the revival that happened at the Kennedy Center. What happened at the Kennedy Center was possibly more remarkable than what happened at the mall on Saturday.

My fear is and I don't want to spend a lot of time talking about what the media has said because they have proven themselves to be, in my opinion they have proven themselves to be so untrustworthy and so out of touch that it's really not even worth reviewing. I mean, I know Pat is itching to review. How many times on this program did I say, media, be careful what you're saying and what you're printing because you don't know what's on the program. No one has asked me what was on the program.

PAT: Oh, no, they did. MSNBC reported right before the program what was on the program.

VOICE: You have plenty of people as you mentioned set to speak. You have Sarah Palin today about 10:40, Michele Bachmann, congressman from Minnesota also set to speak, a tea party favorite as well as Dick Armey also expected a little later today.

PAT: So how did you enjoy Michele Bachmann and Dick Armey's speech?

GLENN: I didn't know she was there. Oh, I saw her in the VIP section. I did see her down in the crowd during my speech.

STU: She was probably at some point, spoke to the person sitting next to her.

GLENN: She did speak at the rally.

PAT: She, nor Dick Armey spoke at this rally, nor were they on schedule, they were never scheduled to speak.

GLENN: It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter.

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."
