Van Jones on Fox News: ‘Satan is Everywhere’
GLENN: A lot of these things are starting to really come together. At least I
think. You know, for instance, we've been telling you that they were going to
that, you know, the Fairness Doctrine isn't enough. We've played the audio from
the radicals, Mark Lloyd who is the diversity czar at the FCC. We showed you
what he played what he said and about the glorious revolution in Venezuela and
how he you had to have the media to be able to complete the revolution. We told
you it was coming. Now, yesterday Genachowski, the chairperson of the FCC, the
head guy at the FCC announced that they are going to do, what do you call it,
PAT: Net neutrality.
GLENN: Net neutrality. They are going to do net neutrality which basically as we
played for you last night on television, Cass Sunstein says net neutrality is
necessary because if you're going to a website like let's say mine and you're
listening to my opinion, you need to have pop up boxes of someone else's opinion
that is against me. That's what they want on the Internet and that's what's
coming. And the FCC is moving towards it on December 21st. I would suggest you
call your senators, your representatives and everyone you can and say leave the
Internet alone. They are not going to. Now you also have Copps, another FCC
commissioner, we played this audio for you a few minutes ago on the BBC and he
was doing an interview there and he said American journalism is in peril,
there's just not enough journalism, so we've got to stop in and make sure is
that the stories are being done right, okay?
We knew this was coming because we know who we know what journalists have it
right. For instance, we just played Lesley Stahl who said the president is a
doctor who saved the burn victim and now because the burn victim has scars, the
country can't see past the scars and they are blaming the doctor. So we know
that Lesley Stahl is, you know, her job is completely fine at CBS. Everyone who
works at Fox, everyone in talk radio, we're in trouble. We're in real trouble.
The president has already targeted Fox. I want to play two pieces of audio for
you. The first one is from Van Jones. If you go to
TheBlaze.com, while you
can, if you go to TheBlaze.com, yesterday if you went, we had posted on the
front page on this news site Van Jones being told being asked a question and
being told the video reporter said that they are not allowed to tape there. It
was not a Fox reporter. It was an Internet guy. It was immediately sent out
people to say, thugs, go away, go away, go away, you can't do these things, you
can't ask them. And they immediately accused him of being from Fox. He wasn't
from Fox. He was from, what was it, sharpelbows.net or something like that. I've
never heard of the guy. Well, now we know why they didn't want anybody to tape
it. Because there is a tape that has come out now of Van Jones, and I want you
to hear this story of what Van Jones was saying about Fox. Listen carefully.
GLENN: He's coming.
PAT: Coming any moment now.
GLENN: Coming any moment now.
PAT: Here he comes.
GLENN: You hear that? We played it three times at the end. You have to see the
video. Satan is everywhere. He is calling Fox News Satan. Now by the way, that's
not a religious assassination on us at all. Now let me play Jim Wallis because
Jim Wallis, who is the spiritual advisor for the president of the United States,
the spiritual advisor. If you thought Jeremiah Wright was bad, this guy is him.
Same theology, same ideas. Softer spoken. Here's Jim Wallis, the spiritual
advisor in London on the BBC being asked, do you talk to the president of the
United States very often. Here's what he says.
REPORTER: Do you talk to President Obama?
WALLIS: Yeah, we talk about things. He's struggling because Washington D.C. is
wired to block change and a lot of people thought electing him would make
change. But we're learning again that social movements are what make change.
REPORTER: But as someone who knows him, are you depressed by the kind of
language that's used now in American politics?
GLENN: You ready for his answer? It's thinking. It's loading, it's loading.
PAT: Sorry, we're using a different delivery system today.
GLENN: We're using a very slow delivery system.
WALLIS: Well, it's the kind of language Rupert Murdoch likes. Oh, Fox News has
been the assassin.
GLENN: The assassin of Obama's religion. The assassin of Obama's religion. That
is significant language.
PAT: So in the last few days Jim Wallis has called Fox News an assassin, in
relation to referring to the president of the United States, which you never do,
you never do. I don't care what context you're using, you never use assassin
when it's in reference to the president. And then you've got Van Jones calling
them Satan. But it's Fox News assassinating everyone and who's been demonized.
GLENN: Yeah. He goes on to talk about how Fox News is assassinating the
president's religion and making everybody believe that the president is a
Muslim. I've never heard that. I've heard that opinion on almost every front.
I've heard it on MSNBC I think more than any place else. I've heard that opinion
everywhere, but I've not heard it from a host. Stu, correct me if I'm wrong.
Pat, correct me if I'm wrong.
PAT: I don't think so.
GLENN: Have you ever heard a host come on and say, I think he's a Muslim. Even
PAT: On Fox News?
GLENN: Yeah. Even imply.
GLENN: I haven't.
GLENN: I don't believe he's a Muslim.
PAT: They've cited the poll that showed 18% of Americans think he is and some
others aren't sure what he is, but I don't think I've heard any
GLENN: But everyone, the BBC, Jim Wallis is citing that poll.
GLENN: In this interview Jim Wallis is bringing it up: Is that an assassination
of the religion of the president?
