Glenn Beck: Is NBC 'criminal'?

GLENN: Pat, have you -- Pat's my best friend from Houston, Texas.  Have you read "Dead Heat" yet?

GRAY:  No.

GLENN:  Do you know who Joel Rosenberg is?

GRAY:  Yes.

GLENN:  Do you have to answer everything with just one word?

GRAY:  No.

GLENN:  Is this going to continue for a while?

GRAY:  Yes.

GLENN:  You are not really helpful.

GRAY:  No.  But I haven't read the book yet.

GLENN:  It's really good.  You should read it.  Did you ever read the Left Behind series?

GRAY:  I saw the movie with what's his face?  He was terrific.

GLENN:  Kirk Cameron.

GRAY:  Thank you, terrific.  He turned in such a powerful performance.

GLENN:  Okay, all right.

GRAY:  Man, that was good.

GLENN:  Yeah.

GRAY:  That was good.  I was surprised there was no Oscar involved.

GLENN:  Hey, we were just talking, off the air we were just having a debate because I think Stu is actually for the GE/NBC thing.

STU:  Well, yes, I am.  You know it annoys me more than anybody but the only thing I called you out on, on the break is your use of the word criminal.  To me it's shady.  You know, NBC is basically putting their credibility on the line.  They say that they just obviously don't care about credibility, where CBS will say, hey, we have this offer from one of our publishers because they want to at least maintain the appearance.

GLENN:  You know, let me tell you something.  Let me tell you something.  You could listen to Stu or you could -- I mean, who are you going to trust?  Are you going to listen to Stu or are you going to have a guy who's -- I'm sitting here with one of our researchers who is -- you know, he worked at the White House, clerked for the Supreme Court.  I mean, the guy is pretty smart.  An attorney, yada, yada, yada.  He knows.  Joe, come here.

STU:  Well, you didn't know when you said it.  Even though he agrees with you --

GLENN:  Stu or mine?  Joe, whose gut's right?  Glenn or Stu?

GLENN:  Stu is 100% right on this one.

STU:  Yes, I love it.

GLENN:  Nobody's really helping me out here.

GRAY:  He's got no credibility.  Jeez, Joe.

GLENN:  Stu, you're right.  It's not actually criminal.  Did I say criminal or damn near criminal?

GRAY:  I think you said darn near initially.  Borders on, something like that, criminal.

STU:  You said it like that before but you actually said criminal.  That's why I called you out on it because I don't think you actually believe that.  You stated it differently before.

GLENN:  No, it is not, it is not criminal.  It should be, quite honestly.  You know, even 60 Minutes, when they do, you know, an author, "Oh, let's look into the Valerie Plame story, and we've got Valerie Plame on."  They will say in there, because it's important, "CBS is a wholly owned subsidiary of VICORP -- or not VICORP, Viacom which also owns Simon and Schuster."  That's kind of important to know that this isn't really a news story.  This is a book publishing story.  And that's kind of what -- you know, you need to let the viewers know of NBC.  And you can say all you want, "Oh, everybody knows that GE owns NBC."  No.  No, they don't.  You think the regular people -- and do you think regular people know that GE, they will know, "Oh, yeah, makes my CAT scans because I've had my head examined several times."  They will know that, they know it makes light bulbs, they know it makes washers and dryers and freezers and everything else but they don't know they are the largest lobbying group, the largest -- think of this.  The largest lobbying corporation in America.  They spend more money than any other corporation lobbying congress.  This is everything that Al Gore and everybody else says we've got to stop, "Oh, it's horrible, oh, all the money that's involved, they're just trying to -- they're only duping you, they've only bought these scientists off, they've got enough money.  The evil oil corporations have so much money, they're buying all these people off.  What you're listening to is only propaganda financed by the oil companies."  Well, what about the energy companies?  What about the electric companies?  What about the company that makes the wind turbine and the new fluorescent light bulb?  How about that money?  Does that make any difference?  Damn near criminal.

I'm not getting help from anybody here.

STU:  I wasn't sure if it was time to respond.  I mean, you know --

GRAY:  You just don't know.  Am I still on?  Have I left the building?  Am I in the country?  I don't know.

STU:  I mean, the bottom line, though, is, Glenn, you've got -- first of all, "Electric" is in their name.  There's some degree of realizing that, I don't know how I got in the position of defending NBC on this, but -- and also, you know, I am completely with you.  They should say it.  They don't care about their credibility.  They have Keith Olbermann on the air calling himself a journalist and they allow that.  So they don't care about their news credibility at all.

GLENN:  Can you imagine?  Can you even imagine?  Can you imagine what CNN would say to me if I was on going, "I am absolutely a journalist."  Do you think CNN would put me on the air saying I'm a journalist?

STU:  They just obviously care a little bit more than NBC does about their journalistic integrity.

GLENN:  Oh, no, it's not just that.  It's not just that.  Every soul in the media, every single person in the media.  If I was a flaming liberal, let me tell you something.

STU:  Oh, yeah.

GLENN:  We would be making twice the amount of money that we're making right now, we would have lower ratings than we have right now, and I'd be allowed to call myself a journalist and I'd be allowed to put almost anything on the air.  We have to jump through hoops to make sure that everything is nailed down, everything is buttoned up, every single word is vetted to make sure it's accurate.  And I'm not a journalist.  I'm an opinion guy.  That would not happen at any place if it was -- if I was a flaming liberal saying, oh, my gosh, global warming, we're all going to freeze to death in a horrible fire in 20 years.

STU:  Right.  But that's exactly the point is that on global warming, NBC knows no one is going to call them out about it.  They know.  They don't have to worry about their credibility because no one's going to say anything.

GLENN:  It goes back to what I said to you last week after I got back from going to these big universities, Columbia and Princeton and I said, what scared me the most was the arrogance, the arrogance of these people.  That arrogance comes from, they think they're right, they're willing to do anything because it's good for the people.  Oh, the little people don't know.

You know what?  The ends justify the means.  I'm going to shut the pie hole for a minute and try to get an update on the border from Pat who's down in Houston, Texas and is following this.  Is anybody following the border right now with all the other things that are going on?  That spells trouble.  888-727-BECK.  More in a second.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
