GLENN: (Laughing). So last night I'm on the set and my producers come down and some of the executives come down from, you know, the high rise down to the studio, and I can always tell by the look on their face when there's trouble. And they said New York Times is going to run a story you're an anti Semite. And I said, oh, am I? Is that what I am now? Really? I'm an anti Semite?
So here in a nutshell is just some of the highlights from the New York Times story. Stu, you want to take this?
STU: Yes, I definitely do.
STU: I find it interesting, especially when you're about to read this letter that they did not use, it's almost as if they either didn't even read their own article or it's hard to even understand how this occurs, but they talk about how evil you are and everything and how you're being attacked for saying things that are horrific and offensive, blah, blah blah, blah blah. But the two quotes, living two paragraphs away from each other, are particularly interesting. It says you're talking about how George Soros, his childhood and the horrible things that happened in his childhood and you say, quote: I am certainly not saying that George Soros enjoyed that, even had a choice. I mean, he's 14 years old. He was surviving. So I'm not making a judgment.
GLENN: Okay. Hang on just a second. I want you to read that again and, Pat, can you find the audio of George Soros where he says it was the best year of his life?
PAT: I'll look for it.
GLENN: I mean, I'm even giving him the credit that he didn't enjoy it, although even though he said himself it was the best year of his life. But I'm willing to say, okay, well, I'm missing some subtleties here, you know, in the Holocaust years.
STU: Yeah. I mean, you know, look
GLENN: Life is beautiful. It's the story of life is beautiful. I'm willing to go there.
STU: So here's the quote again from you: I am certainly not saying that George Soros enjoyed that, even if he had a excuse me. I am certainly not saying that George Soros enjoyed that, even had a choice. I mean, he's 14 years old. He was surviving. So I am not making a judgment, end quote.
Then two paragraphs later from Abe Foxman attacking you saying, quote: To hold a young boy responsible for what was going on around him during the Holocaust as part of a larger effort to denigrate the man is repugnant.
Did you even see the segment? Did you see the segment? Did you read the quote or did you just take an e mail from someone else and just pop something out?
STU: I don't understand this.
GLENN: Abe, here is what I would and I don't share personal letters, but I'm going to share yours because this I find absolutely incredible from the Anti Defamation League. ADL and we never mentioned this on the air. ADL sent a direct mail piece before the elections out to their supporters, and in that direct mail piece they identified me as a guy making anti Semitic comments. I never once said anything on the air. But we did bring it up to the ADL and say, uh, hello. Can you name those anti Semitic comments, please? Hello.
We received this letter: Dear Glenn, a direct mail piece recently sent to some ADL supporters around the country inadvertently misidentified you on the list of celebrities that had made anti Semitic statements over the past year. This was clearly a mistake and we deeply regret that your name was included in the mailing which was produced by an independent third party contractor. I hope you will accept my personal responsibility my personal apologies.
He could have ended the letter there, but he didn't. "Even though we may disagree from time to time, I know that you are a friend of the Jewish people and a friend of Israel. Sincerely, Abe Foxman, national director of the ADL."
PAT: Okay, but that was what? 1993?
GLENN: It was October 22nd, 2010. So it was way
PAT: Way, way, way back.
GLENN: You've got to go into the time machine.
PAT: Last month.
GLENN: Way back.
PAT: Way back to late last month to get that.
GLENN: That letter is they didn't find any relevance in that at all. That letter was not included in the New York Times. It is on the front page of TheBlaze.com today.
PAT: Of course they didn't include it.
PAT: Because if the New York Times includes that story, they don't have a story!
STU: Yep, don't have a story. They have to
PAT: There is not a thing they can say about it.
STU: Yeah. They just have to not post something.
STU: I mean, they are certainly not going to the point of proving that this is an obviously political, an obviously political attack.
GLENN: Here's the thing.
PAT: It's a hack job.
GLENN: Here's the thing.
