GLENN: I would like to start with cut 221, please. Jay Rockefeller, Jay Rockefeller tells news officials if we don't fix this in other words, Fox, if we don't fix this, we'll fix you.

So let me caution our witnesses today. If you fail to fix this situation, all three parts of it, we're going to fix it for you, but when we do that, we will seek to do more than referee your corporate money disputes because more than just retransmission consent ails our television markets. We need new catalysts for quality news and entertainment programming. I hunger for quality news. I'm tired of the right and the left.

GLENN: Are you?

There's a whole bug inside of me that wants to get the FCC to say to Fox and MSNBC off, end, good bye. It would be a big favor to political discourse, our ability to do our work here in Congress.

GLENN: Sure would. Let's stop discussion.

And then we could talk and people can have faith in their government and more importantly, their future.

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop. So it is Fox and MSNBC that is causing us not to have faith in our government. It's not that the crushing debt. It's not the out of control corruption, it's the news.

STU: It's nothing they're doing.

GLENN: He's hungry for the news. Funny. His policies will make the rest of the country hungry and starving. That's fantastic.

PAT: The catalyst for this, I'm pretty sure, are all of these disputes with the rebroadcast rights, right? Like Fox, the local affiliate in New York had a big deal with Comcast, cablevision or somebody. They were taken off the air for, what, about a month and so some people missed the world series.

GLENN: Oh, no. Let's get Congress involved.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Were there steroids involved? It's the free market.

PAT: They would be imprisoned if there were steroids involved.

STU: You have to respect the constitution and in the good and plenty clause, it says you have the right to watch the world series on television for free.

GLENN: The good and plenty clause does not exist.

PAT: We heard about it from John Conyers.

GLENN: The good and plenty clause is for healthcare not rebroadcast.

PAT: You can't use it for anything?

STU: Anything that is in there you're thinking Article 36.

GLENN: Yes, the rebroadcast dissertation clause?

STU: Yes.

PAT: A lot of people don't look at this clause. It's a good clause.

GLENN: It didn't say the world series. It was talking more about the cricket.

PAT: They didn't have the world series then. It would be silly to say that.

GLENN: They meant the world series.

STU: Subsequent Supreme Court rulings have shown that

GLENN: Isn't this big of Jay Rockfeller to say he's willing to get rid of MSNBC? Which is weird because that's what NBC said they should do. We should get rid of MSNBC.

[ Laughter ]

And so GE is getting rid of all of that and they're selling it to Comcast, which is, wait a minute, which is one of these cable companies that are having problems now with the government. Isn't that weird? Here's a prediction. Jay, you don't have to worry about MSNBC going after because just as a business person, take politics out of it, NBC and MSNBC, the way they're running it, when you have when you have Bryan Williams on, who is a good broadcaster. You have Bryan Williams on going just could you DVR my show, please, somebody, anyone? Anyone DVR the show? Can you watch? Please, you have seen this?

PAT: No.

GLENN: He has a campaign out, please DVR my show, please.

PAT: Hopefully it's a little less pathetic than that.

GLENN: It's a little less pathetic. Yeah, it's a little less pathetic. Someone please DVR, please.

STU: That's a weird slogan.

GLENN: I mean, you just start you know, I think they will start going

[ Laughter ]

Please watch us. It's over. It's over. And so Comcast is buying it. Comcast and this is just what I've read, I don't know. Comcast, the guy who owns it or runs it or whatever is a Republican.

STU: I don't know if that's true.

GLENN: What's more important is that he's a businessman, you know. And he knows how to run a business and anybody who knows how to run a business is not going to put up with Keith Olbermann. He's not. There's no ratings and they turned NBC into a news cancer.

STU: You have to pay him a fortune so he can annoy you at every turn.

GLENN: It's not going to happen. It's big for Jay Rockefeller to say as NBC is crashing and burning, I'm willing to destroy it.

STU: I'm willing to ban the pony express as well.

[ Laughter ]

It's like, okay. It's going away on its own.

GLENN: What we need for a more civil discourse is less discourse, clearly.

STU: I don't understand that argument. Why would you care?

GLENN: You don't expect to understand the progressive argument, do you?

STU: I guess not?

GLENN: Guy is globalist central. Do you have the audio from his dad?

PAT: I'm looking for that.

GLENN: That's what he wants to you believe. He's in with the Rothschilds.

PAT: They were the original.

GLENN: They were the original Bilderbergs.

PAT: I think they built the Bilderberg Hotel that is named after the Bilderbergs.

GLENN: That family was named after the famous hotel?

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Or are you saying the secret society was named after the hotel. So the Bilderbergs aren't real people. It's just a hotel

PAT: Just a hotel.

GLENN: Who knew?

STU: Rothschild is just a candy.

GLENN: No, I think that's wine.

PAT: Is it? I thought there was a Rothschild candy. Yes. If anybody knows candy, it's Jeffy. Thank you.

GLENN: Thank you from the fat guy in the back. Yeah, it's candy.

PAT: Everything is candy.

GLENN: What I like to do with candy is wash it down with a little Rothschild chateau LEFITE. August was a good month. I always drink it right out of the box. Some day I'm going to live the American dream. I'm going to be a candy and wine taster.

[ Laughter ]

So I don't understand these people who spit it out. What's wrong with you people. Drink it. It's good wine, damnit.

President Joe Biden and world leaders are spending the week discussing the biggest issues across the globe. But Mike Pompeo, former Secretary of State during the Trump administration, believes more needs to be done.

Pompeo joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to talk about President Biden's upcoming meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin, and to explain why he believes it's not just "appropriate," but necessary to hold Putin accountable for the recent cyberattacks on the Colonial Pipeline and the JBS meat processing company.

Pompeo said it's likely that "at the very least" Putin turned a blind eye to the major attacks against U.S. infrastructure. He stressed that the Biden administration should not abandon private businesses in the face of these ransomware hacks, but rather do everything possible to make sure those businesses' assets are secure from future invasions.

"This is an attack on America," Pompeo said. "It came through an attack on a commercial enterprise, but the capacity for pipelines to move product around on our east coast is an American national security interest.... We have to help these businesses protect their systems, and then there has to be a national effort to impose costs on those who put American lives at risk by denying available product around our country.

"Putin, at the very least, is turning a blind eye to [the cyberattacks], probably more. So, it's appropriate to hold Vladimir Putin and the Russians accountable for the actions taking place inside of their country," he added. "We have to do it, and there are tools by which we can."

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn read from the Bible's II Timothy 3, in which Paul warns of "perilous times" to come and describes a generation that will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, and the list goes on. Sound familiar?

But Glenn said the times we're facing — which will likely become more and more difficult — are not any graver than what our Founders faced. We can overcome, and while it won't be easy, it will be worth it.

"Just like George Washington and the badge of merit, we will not be able to conquer this evil unless we are on God's side. If we don't have Divine Providence, we will not be able to survive. The things that are arrayed in front of us, are no greater no less than what our Founders had arrayed against them," Glenn stated.

"So, what will we do? You must make those decisions, as a family, right now. What is the line for you that you and your family will not cross? Because if you don't know it now, you will cross it," he warned. "You have to speak out, be that voice. You have to be strong enough to lead."

Glenn went on to thank and praise his audience, saying, "This is the kindest, most generous audience I have ever encountered."

"You will stand. This audience could be the extra 5% that is needed to change things, for the better," he added. "We have great and glorious times, when I believe we will see the hand of God. We will see miracles. Expect them. And live in such a way where you can call them down."

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."
