How the liberal media works

Have you ever wondered how the liberal media works? We put together this timeline of how “news” spreads in the liberal media....Take a look at this interview Glenn did on the Tuesday, March 4th edition of Glenn Beck on Headline News...

In the video above did Glenn really question if Barack Obama is the anti-Christ? Well, as noted in this Newsbusters article Glenn was 'doing it in a humorous fashion which gave no credence whatsoever to the notion that Obama is the anti-Christ. In fact, he was clearly belittling it...'

Now a reasonable person might take a look at the video above and question why anyone would report this as news when clearly it's done in a comical fashion. Well that's not how the liberal media works. Take a look at this news headline from Think Progress which appeared shortly after the interview was aired...

Beck: ‘Is Obama the Antichrist?’


Today on his CNN Headline News show, Glenn Beck asked Pastor John Hagee whether Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) is the embodiment of evil:

There are people — they say this about Bill Clinton — he might be the anti-Christ. Odds that Barack Obama is the Antichrist?


On Wednesday, March 5th Media Matters picked up on the story with this...

Beck failed to ask Hagee about controversial statements, instead asked him if Obama might be the Antichrist


Note that within the Media Matters article they reference back to the Think Progress article...

As the blog Think Progress noted, Beck wrapped up his interview with Hagee by asking him if Sen. Barack Obama might be the Antichrist


Next up on the liberal hack parade is MSNBC's Keith Olbermann who names Glenn the 'Worst Person in the World' for his question about Barack. Note that Olbermann doesn't use the actual audio or video from the interview, instead he just reads the transcript (adding in his own take of Glenn’s supposedly panicked voice). This is clearly done in effort to remove the context of a light hearted question belittling those who believe every new politician on the scene that doesn’t agree with them is the antichrist.

OK, well that was all nice and everything but at least it's over...right? What else is left to report?

Well the liberal media works in magical ways, watch as Media Matters reports that Olbermann named Glenn the Worst Person in the World. In other words they're simply reporting that Olbermann reported a 'news' story that they reported - in their new report. Get it?

O'Reilly, Beck receive honors in Olbermann's "Worst Person" segment


Olbermann also gave CNN Headline News' Glenn Beck the "Worst Person" "bronze" for saying on the March 4 edition of his program, as both Think Progress and Media Matters documented...


But it's still not over...

So far we’ve just seen the slow build in the echo-chamber of liberal hacks. From the more esteemed sources, all the way down to Keith Olbermann, who can’t even do his own reporting on fake news that didn’t happen. But, next up on the liberal media...

Obama and the Bigots


Proponents of this theory offer detailed theological explanations for why he is the Antichrist, and the proof is that he claims to be Christian - after all, the Antichrist would say that, wouldn’t he? The rumors circulate enough that Glenn Beck of CNN asked the Rev. John Hagee, a conservative evangelical, what the odds are that Mr. Obama is the Antichrist.


So there you have it. By reporting the same story multiple times and using themselves as sources and removing all context the liberal media was able to take a clearly sarcastic comment and turn it into nearly a week of (liberal) news.

Of course, the kicker to the whole endless story is: Glenn had predicted that exactly this would happen. (Free audio)

GLENN: By the way, this is all going to be transcribed by Media Matters today as a completely dead serious conversation.

GRAY: I know, I know.

GLENN: It's going to be great. There are going to be media alerts: Glenn Beck announces Obama is the antichrist. You watch. It's going to be everywhere. (Laughing.).

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.
