NY Times Yellow Journalism

GLENN: Let me say this. John McCain, you cheated on your wife? Now you're on record denying it. You cheated on your wife? You think you had problems with conservatives before, you're done for all time. Next accusation, McCain gave special report to the lobbyist causes. They offer zero evidence. The worst they seem to have on him is that he wrote letters that supported positions her client supported, but they were also positions that McCain had publicly supported his entire career. So how is that a special favor? That's like somebody cozying up to me. It's like, "Glenn, will you do a radio show today? Okay." Am I doing them a special favor? I do a radio show every day! Then they dredge up the Charles Keating story. McCain was part of the Keating Five. Why this is news now 20 years later is beyond me. This is something that maybe the New York Times maybe should have considered when they were endorsing him! He was part of the original Keating Five. These are the five senators that met with banking regulators to ask them to back off Keating. It ended the careers of three senators. McCain got away with a slap on the wrist saying that he just had bad judgment on the incident.


 


 This is a rehash of a 20-year-old story but with the problems that are going on in the banking community right now, I'm telling you this is going to be in 527 commercials, you are going to see this everywhere. "If you can't trust John McCain during the last banking schedule -- 20 years ago -- how could you possibly trust him now." This story is going to be retold almost daily until November by the media and Obama and the Clinton operatives. Regardless of the truth, it will probably be effective as McCain tries to make the case that he's always standing up to special interests and yet he didn't 20 years ago. The Keating Five. Call John McCain's office and tell him we don't want any of these kinds of banking scandals." And it's going to be effective.


 


 Next point is the shamelessness of the New York Times. It is beyond argument. I hate to sound like Al Gore here but the hate is over on the shamelessness of the New York Times. The Times itself says that it was asking McCain for interviews on this story back in December. In case you remember, December would have been a good time when we still had decent candidates to pick from. They had this story. We still had Romney, Giuliani, Thompson. We could have chosen those guys instead, but the Times sat on the story for months. Why? Because pinhead dopes all around the country were voting for John McCain because they said he's the most likely to win in a general election.


 


 If the New York Times would have done this story back in December, would we have a different frontrunner today? My answer is yes. Stu says maybe.


 


 STU: Yeah, I would agree -- like, I would agree if there was something really to this story, which at this point I don't see anything to the story. So --


 


 GLENN: It's enough -- look. One of Rudy Giuliani's problems was everybody knew his family was a nightmare. The reports, there's nothing to that story.


 


 STU: Yeah.


 


 GLENN: You don't know -- his son hates him. Well, give my son a few years.


 


 STU: He's going to hate -- oh, God, he's going to hate you.


 


 GLENN: I mean, I've got four children. I think three of them are on the fence already.


 


 STU: Definitely, no doubt about it.


 


 GLENN: I mean, for the love of Pete. So you're -- what? Your 20-year-old son hates you? How could that happen? Nothing to this story. But the appearance of scandal, the number of scandals. Bernard Kerik.


 


 STU: Oh, yeah. What about his recordkeeping when he was going to Long Island for --


 


 GLENN: Yeah, yeah.


 


 STU: That story was nothing.


 


 GLENN: Nothing.


 


 STU: Nothing. And it still hurt him.


 


 GLENN: Exactly right. This would have been like wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. You knew with Rudy Giuliani that the campaign that was running against him could come out with a bunch of hearsay nonsense. Some of it may have been true. Some of it may not have been. This John McCain stuff, maybe it's true. Maybe it's not. I don't know. He denies it. He's -- what was it? He's a patriot warrior. What was it the New York Times --


 


 STU: Maverick warrior.


 


 GLENN: A maverick warrior, a patriot, a man who's beyond question. So I don't know. Maybe the New York Times should take his word for it! They waited until the decision was made and there were no other candidates to choose.

President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?

This is a moment "Cynical Theories" author James Lindsay probably hoped would never come. The liberal mathematician and host of the "New Discourses Podcast" recently came out as "unhappily" voting Republican, including for President Donald Trump, because the Democratic Party is now being controlled by a far-left movement that seeks to destroy our country and the U.S. Constitution.

He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain why this election isn't "Trump versus Biden." It's Trump versus a "movement that wants to tear apart American society at its very foundation." Lindsay warned that if it isn't stopped, the left can toss out our rights by rewriting the Constitution — or abolishing it altogether.

"A lot of people don't understand what's happening with the election we have right now," he said. "They think it's a choice between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. And at the surface level, of course, it is. We're voting for each candidate to be duly put into the office of president. But that's not what we really have going on. We have, in Donald Trump, a man who's going to govern as we've all seen — the way he feels like he's going to govern. And we have in Joe Biden, a man captured by a movement that wants to tear apart the American society at its very foundation."

Lindsay noted the popular leftist narratives that call to "abolish anything they don't like," which now includes the U.S. Constitution. He added that "this is the movement that is controlling the Democratic Party."

"It is my belief, that there has been a largely effective kind of silent coup of the Democratic Party, that's turned it completely under the control of this movement. And that's what we're going to be electing with Joe Biden. So I can't do it," he said.

Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. CT, Glenn Beck goes straight to the source of the biggest story in the country with Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who takes us directly into Hunter Biden's alleged laptop.

Despite Big Tech's attempts to squash this story, there should be a mad scramble in the media to get to the bottom of major corruption allegations, but they're willfully ignoring it. However, this is not just a story about Hunter Biden. This is all about Joe Biden. It's a story Glenn has been investigating for over a year that traces back to Ukraine and China. It goes directly to the root of corruption within our political system: How politicians use their family members to enrich the entire clan and sell out their country. While the media looks the other way, Glenn asks Mayor Giuliani to show us the evidence. Giuliani details the chain of possession of the laptop and reveals news that he only had possession of the laptop days before the New York Post story broke. He says, "I reported this the day after I saw it."

He also drops a major bombshell on the show and says Big Tech doesn't want you to see evidence that "establishes with texts, documents, contracts" that "Joe Biden was a 10% partner with a Chinese communist … and there are witnesses that will come forward and testify to it."

The Senate Judiciary Committee was set to vote on subpoenas to compel Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify on alleged censorship and bias across their platforms. But that all changed when Republican committee members "expressed reservation about the maneuver," Politico reports.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who chairs Judiciary's Subcommittee on the Constitution, was definitely not one of the committee members with cold feet. On the radio program Tuesday, he told Glenn Beck that he's fighting "vociferously" to ensure Dorsey and others testify before the November 3rd election.

"Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg are both going to testify. They're are going to testify in person. They're going to testify before Election Day. That's what I think should happen," Cruz said. "That's what I'm fighting vociferously to happen. Right now, the companies are negotiating with the chairman's office to discuss terms to come voluntarily. I don't give a damn whether they come voluntarily or under subpoena. They need to testify in person and answer questions for the American people about why they are trying to steal this election, to suppress the free speech, and to censor the press."

The subpoenas would require Big Tech leaders to testify on the alleged "suppression and/or censorship" of two consecutive blockbuster stories from the New York Post. The first story was about emails that allegedly came from Hunter Biden's computer which are currently being investigated by the FBI, and the second was based on additional emails that allegedly showed communist China directly offering millions of dollars to then-Vice President Joe Biden.

"Big Tech stepped in, and they've done something they've never done before," Cruz explained. "We know that Big Tech has been censoring individual conservatives, trying to suppress conservative speech. But the step they took here is, they blocked if any individual user tried to share either of the New York Post stories, [they] were blocked ... Sharing a news story, from a major media outlet is part of democracy, part of free speech. And not only that, they blocked the New York Post itself. Right now, today, the New York Post is not being allowed to post its own damn stories on corruption. This is ridiculous. It's a threshold that's never been crossed before, of Silicon Valley oligarchs declaring the authority to determine what the press is allowed to report, and who is allowed to see it."
