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.

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."
