Politico lies about Glenn



Vote and Comment: Beck Demands Retraction: Politico‘s Story on Palin Is ’Out and Out Lie’

GLENN: Politico yesterday, Politico does this story on saying that sources close to me say I was so frustrated with Sarah Palin that she was cancelling and rebooking an appearance on this program for a book that I said no more Sarah Palin I won't have her on the show, radio or television because of that.

STU: Really?

PAT: What?

STU: News to me.

PAT: What?

GLENN: Yeah, you guys hadn't heard this story yesterday?

PAT: No, no. Oh, jeez.

GLENN: I'm walking down, I'm walking to work and Joe says, Glenn, can you reach out to Sarah Palin? And I said, sure, what's up? And he said, the Politico story. And I said, what Politico story? And he said, there were so many problems with booking her on your show that you said no more, she's not going to be on the show anymore.

STU: That was weird, when

PAT: That's almost the exact opposite of what actually occurred.

GLENN: Can I tell you something? I don't even know what occurred because I had no recollection. I actually stopped and I looked at him and I said, what book? I mean, I didn't even I didn't even know the book.

PAT: I know.

GLENN: What book?

STU: Yeah, no, that's absurd I mean, because

PAT: Wow.

STU: It said that Sarah Palin because you hear these sort of nonsensical claims that she's high maintenance. I wouldn't even say she's low maintenance. She's zero maintenance.

GLENN: Zero maintenance.

PAT: Zero maintenance. And so are you.

PAT: I've never seen anything like it. And so are you.

GLENN: Can I tell you something? She would have walked

STU: No, let's not go crazy.

PAT: Well, I mean, when it comes to booking guests and stuff like that, I mean, what we told her was don't worry about it. Whatever.

GLENN: Whatever. I mean, I don't even remember

PAT: We don't have to be first, we don't have to be second, if you want to come on, come on. There's no pressure.

GLENN: Yeah, I have told for instance, Sarah Palin and I have said this directly to this is like two years ago: Sarah, I don't need, I don't need breaking news. That's not what I do. I don't need breaking news. You don't need to be the first guest. I don't really care. I don't really care. I don't guests on. So whatever. You want to be on, you don't want to be on? If I can help, if I can, you know, not help, whatever. I don't care.

STU: Yeah, it's like, you know, Sarah Palin like at 8/28, she shows up basically with no one, with no entourage.

GLENN: No one. I provided security for her and she didn't even ask for it.

STU: Yeah. She just hung out at a table by herself writing her speech and touching up her speech. She walked over. I remember at one point looking over and there's just Sarah Palin just there kind of watching the events by herself just being quiet and polite to everybody.

GLENN: Just normal.

STU: that passes by.

GLENN: She's a normal human being.

PAT: What a stupid, ridiculous story.

GLENN: So I said yesterday, went on television and I demanded a retraction or apology from Politico or name names, who on my staff said that. I know no one on my staff said that. No one. No one. Because my staff is a close knit, close knit staff. We like each other. We all like working with each other. Nobody would say that. Because if it were true, it would be so out of the ordinary. It would be so unlike us. Can you think of anybody we've done that to? That we've been frustrated? We said never again?

STU: No, not offhand.

GLENN: I mean except for like the Muppet, the Tickle Me Elmo guy. I mean, you really have to

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: We don't do that. So here's how it was reported in the press yesterday after I said that: Glenn Beck becomes Sarah Palin's knight in shining armor. What? No. I demanded an apology and a retraction or a naming of names from Politico.

STU: But they feel the need to assign some dramatic story line to the truth. The truth is she's extraordinarily low maintenance and has been nothing but a pleasure to work with.

GLENN: The truth is Politico lied. That's the truth.

STU: Well, I mean, it could be somebody claiming that they have inside knowledge. I mean, I

GLENN: Who? Who?

STU: I don't know.

PAT: Could be somebody from another show.

STU: Could be somebody from another show.

GLENN: They don't have any inside knowledge.

PAT: I know, I know.

GLENN: Our studios are separate.

STU: But that doesn't mean that Politico

GLENN: Our studios are separate from every other studio. We're in almost a separate building at Fox.

STU: Right, right.

GLENN: And all of my offices and all of my TV staff are with me in my offices.

PAT: Somebody from another show could have lied to Politico.

STU: Exactly. The lie somebody lied. It could have very easily been that someone lied to Politico.

GLENN: Here's the thing. You cannot believe, you cannot believe the amount of lies and distortion in the media. I wouldn't have believed it. Would you have believed it when we first

STU: Oh, no, it's much worse, much worse.

GLENN: I mean, if you think it's bad, times it by a hundred. I've never seen anything like it. When I first got into it, I thought, okay, there's some people with an agenda, but generally everybody tries to get it right. No, I don't even, I don't even believe that.

STU: No. I wouldn't say that.

GLENN: I don't believe that.

STU: Because the majority of time we've been on the air, Glenn, as far as, you know, news talk radio has been as somewhat of an observer to this.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: You watch the stories happen, you kind of know the facts on the side, you don't

GLENN: We're still observers, I believe.

STU: And I think that's true. I don't mean to observe like we're inside of it. But a lot of the stories now are written about you.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: So we know exactly what happened behind the story. There's no, "I don't know, I don't know if I trust this person or not." We were there. We were sitting at these events watching them happen and we see them told in the media completely incorrect.

GLENN: And you know what else it is? We not only were we there, we know they never reached out to us. We know people don't reach out and try to get the story right. And when they do reach out, we have people that I mean, I can't tell you how many times we have said, no, you want the real story? Here's the real story. And then they just never publish it.

STU: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: It just doesn't matter. It doesn't matter to these people.

STU: Yeah. To be fair, it's not universal. There are people who do reach out all the time. You know what I mean? There are people that do try.

GLENN: There are some. There are some.

STU: And it's not universal, but it is worse than I expected.

GLENN: You know who, you know who said the shining knight thing was Mediaite? And Mediaite is one of those websites that gets it right about, I'd say 70% of the time. When they get it wrong, they get it wrong. But usually they reach out and they really try to get it right.

STU: That's great. That's all you can ask for.

GLENN: That's all I ask for is somebody who tries to be fair. And they try to be fair. But Mediaite, you got it wrong this time. I'm not being her knight in shining armor. I'm not covering I won't cover for anybody. I won't lie for anybody, I won't cover for anybody. I'm done giving my trust to anybody.

STU: Yeah. Sarah Palin, it's an easy story. She's not like that at all. So I don't wherever they got that information from was completely lying.


 

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
