GLENN: Joe. Joe, are you there?

JOE: I'm here, Glenn.

GLENN: You're not having, like, serious marital problems, are you?

JOE: Well, we're not married yet. We're longtime boyfriend/girlfriend. We've been living together for years.

GLENN: Oh, well, I don't give a flying crap about you two. We're not breaking anything up. I mean, she could leave and it's okay then. I mean, you're like, I got nothing in it. What?

JOE: I got time invested.

GLENN: Oh, you got time, schmime. Please.

JOE: She just graduated college and today's her birthday. It was a bad day yesterday.

GLENN: Why? Why did you forget?

JOE: Well, I didn't really forget. I drive a truck. I didn't get home last night until almost midnight. I didn't exactly whip the truck into the florist. When I got to Wal-Mart, all they had left was a spare rose petal on the floor.

GLENN: I told you, I warned you for weeks. All right. So then Joe, this is your girlfriend. I mean, I don't feel bad on this one. It's a girlfriend. Are you going to marry her?

JOE: Oh, yeah, definitely.

GLENN: Really? Would you like to ask her today? It would make it special.

JOE: No, no, no, she would kill me. She's going to kill me anyway, but --

GLENN: Hang on. We're filling out your Mad Lib essay that you wrote. We'll call. Her name is Laura?

JOE: Yes.

GLENN: We're calling Laura here in just a second. Stand by.

(OUT 11:50)

GLENN: Not going to be able to get to the Ann Coulter video that I talked about last night. Ann was on the show last night. We talked about John McCain and Romney. Please check it out. You'll forward it in the newsletter today and also it's available right now at the front page of GlennBeck.com.

Today is the day for our Couple of the Year contest and we were supposed to do it yesterday but we ran out of time. So let's get right to it, shall we?

VOICE: And now it's the contest of the year in the making. It's Glenn Beck's quest to find America's ultimate couple of love. The essays have been written, the heartfelt words have been read and the winner has been selected. So now to introduce the country's most special couple, here's the love God himself, Glenn Beck.

CALLER: As you know we do this every year and we've had thousands of letters in and entries and we have Joe on the phone and I have to rush through it kind of because we're running out of time here. Gosh darn it, Joe, I hope I didn't make things horrible for you last night. Did you expose this?

JOE: Oh, it was a bad night.

GLENN: Was it really?

JOE: Yes.

GLENN: I'm sorry. I asked you because I couldn't make it in yesterday because of health issues and I asked you to keep it secret and now we have Laura on the phone who's your girlfriend. Hi, Laura.

LAURA: Hi, hello.

GLENN: Do you know who I am by any chance? I'm Glenn Beck. I do a radio show?

LAURA: Oh, okay, I do.

GLENN: And Joe, I asked him. He entered a contest about four months ago for Valentine's Day. You guys were the winner of the Couple of the Year and I got sick and so we have to do it today. So I'm sorry I wrecked your Valentine's Day, Laura.

LAURA: Oh, my goodness.

GLENN: Yeah. You didn't know, did you?

LAURA: No, I didn't. I really didn't know. Now I feel horrible.

GLENN: No, it's my fault. It's my fault. Do you forgive her, Joe?

JOE: Ooh, yes, definitely.

GLENN: Listen, I have a quick letter that I want to read to you. He said, Glenn, I've never entered a contest like this before. However I have to tell you about my beautiful girlfriend. I just can't express in words how uniquely wonderful Laura is. Honestly at first I think I was just attracted to her smile but as time went on, it turned into so much more. I guess I knew it was love the first time we had roast beef sandwiches at Panera Bread. Wow, what a perfect time that was. I guess what sets her apart is the distinctive way she loves animals, unlike any other woman in Kent County. I could go on forever but that would take away from my time with her and I have to get back at work at Swift where I drive a truck virtually 24 hours a day five days a week. Besides, everyone always tries to make love so complex. Let me tell you something, Joe, this what won the contest, this line alone. Everyone tries to make love so complex and I think that's why we should be your Valentine's Couple of the Year because for me it's simple. I just love Laura.

LAURA: Oh, my God. I'm crying. Oh.

GLENN: Bringing people together. That's what we do. Joe, do you have anything you want to say to Laura?

JOE: Yeah. Laura?

LAURA: Yes?

JOE: I love you.

LAURA: Oh, I love you, too, Joe.

GLENN: Oh, that is fantastic. Guys, thank you so much and happy Valentine's Day one day late. And I'm so glad that we could help you both out and it sounds like you're a lovely couple.

LAURA: Thank you. 

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."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
