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.


 

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:
