GLENN: From Radio City in Midtown Manhattan, third most listened to show in all of America. Hello, you sick twisted freak. Welcome to the program. I'm going to talk to you a little bit about Sarah Palin, and I hope that I hope that we're now seeing the Sarah Palin that is the Sarah Palin that now gets it. I think it takes you a while to get the press. I think and maybe it's just me, but I've come to New York and to the press and you've seen it. I mean recently. We just did a deal with Time magazine last week and we had worked with them for three weeks on something and they completely misrepresented themselves. Oh, they were, oh, our best buddies. "Oh, yeah." And then they just hatchet us to death. And so you just don't think I saw about it this weekend when I saw that story come out in Time and I thought, how do these people sleep at night? You just don't want to go into it thinking that so many people in the media are just bad people, but I think they are. Not everybody, but I think a lot of them are. They don't care. They will do anything t hey have to for their side to win. I just want the truth and I thought that's what they were into. And so I think Sarah Palin came into this just, it's a different world here in Manhattan and it's a different world in Washington. And I don't mean the regular people. The people in New York get a bad rap. People in New York are just like everybody else. The elites in New York, left and right, they're a freak show and the elites in the media. It's the same thing. Freak show. I think when Sarah Palin first got into it, she was a little like I have been. You know, people are good. People are generally good. No, you know, I know that the, you know, Washington is broken but, no, no. No, no, it's beyond broken. It's a cesspool. It needs to be restored, not just I mean, it needs all the pieces need to be taken out and everything needs to be wiped down and sanitized and then we put new pieces in. That's what has to happen. And I don't think she really understood that. I think she was steam rolled by the McCain campaign and didn't see that one coming. I think the McCain campaign and I have nothing I'm basing this on other than my own gut. I think the McCain campaign used her and despised her at the same time. And I also believe that the Republicans do not like Sarah Palin as much as the Democrats don't. Now, not all of them because there's some Democrats in there that or some Republicans in there that are like, yeah, we need a good housecleaning, we need somebody who can, you know, just restore this thing the way it should be. But anybody who plays the game hates Sarah Palin. Any of the elites like David Letterman hate Sarah Palin. Because, what, she's a soccer mom, she goes hunting, she's playing with her kids. What? Don't you have some help to do that? She's probably smells like baby vomit. You know, that kind of a thing. That's where David Letterman is. They all sit around and at cocktail parties and they all... so now I'm hoping that this is the new Sarah Palin because I don't know if anybody has really truly talked about how Sarah Palin eviscerated David Letterman, eviscerated him. She took a scalpel and cut his heart out. It was still beating in her hand when he was like, "You know, and another thing about how stupid and slutty you are..." he didn't even see it coming. And the reason why I say she eviscerated it, it's one thing to say, hey, don't make fun of my daughter, which she's completely in the right to do. I mean, where was the when the press started asking Barack Obama and taking pictures and he was like, "Hey, back off. It's my private time with my kids." Nobody invades that. Do you know they are closing down streets now every time his daughters go back in the backyard and play? Do you know that? They close the street. Do I have a problem with that? No. None at all. Leave the children alone. I don't want those kids growing up to be in a zoo where people are watching them or some freak is out there with a camera. And when I say freak, I mean paparazzi or anything. Don't leave kids out of it. But that's not what she did. The one thing that could be said about David Letterman that I believe all of us know to be true is and we don't know this. You never know, but I think it's a pretty good guess. He is not a pervert. He is not preying on your children. Stu is looking at me like, well, we don't have evidence of that. Do you think he is looking at pictures of 14 year olds?

STU: I mean, I have no reason to believe that.

GLENN: Correct.

STU: But I have no reason to not believe that.

GLENN: Correct, correct, correct. But if we're going to be the typical people that we are and that Sarah Palin is, you'd have no reason to believe that David Letterman is looking at, you know, bad pictures of 14 year olds.

STU: Right. He's not a criminal in this. Most likely with David Letterman was he didn't even know.

STU: I don't know that you can say that's most likely. I don't think I can give you most likely.

GLENN: Highly likely?

STU: I would say no, I would not say most likely. I would say it's possible. It's possible he didn't know.

GLENN: What you know about David Letterman, he is a bad human being. He is just not nobody likes working with him.

STU: I've heard that, yes. From many people.

GLENN: From many, many people. Not a decent human being.

STU: But I mean, that's hearsay. I've heard it from people who

GLENN: From people who worked with him for a very long time.

STU: Wasn't my first

GLENN: Okay. So the hearsay is bad guy, really a nasty dude. And also the comedy writing scenario over there is everybody just passes notes, nobody's in a room working together. There is no talking there. It's a nasty situation. You get the cards to him. He reads them in rehearsal and that's it. So it's not like he was sitting around going, "Hey, you know what will be funny is if..." he most likely it was written he saw it in the monologue prompter and it was like, "Okay, fine." Whether he knew it was the 14 year old daughter or not, and this so you know, this point is really meaningless because, "Oh, so it was the daughter that was four years older? Sure, she's legal but still it's a 14 year old daughter."

STU: Again I won't give you most likely on that. I think there's a very significant chance that he believed it would be funny because it's Sarah Palin and he hates her that it would be funny to say, you know what, his whole family is a bunch of sluts. I do think that he would think that.

GLENN: And, you know, he wasn't necessarily envisioning the 14 year old. It was just

STU: Again I

GLENN: Okay, all right, I'll give that to you, that's fine. I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. Either way it doesn't excuse it. But what she did is she came out and instead of saying leave my daughters alone, she immediately went for something that is a scalpel, which is you're a dirty old man, a 60 year old making saying sexual comments about a 14 year old. Immediately galvanized against David Letterman, immediately. There's no ifs, ands or buts about it. It's just need Galvanization.

STU: There's no doubt about who won that battle.

GLENN: She did, his beating heart. Yeah, well, you're just a slutty... and didn't even see it being taken out of his chest. And he was so slow, he didn't even see it coming out of his chest the next day and that's where he really went wrong. I think if he would have said, Sarah Palin, you know, we make fun of everybody, I certainly didn't know it was your 14 year old daughter and it was probably over the line even if it wasn't your 14 year old daughter, and I apologize. I think America would have forgiven him. I think America would forgive him.

STU: Again it's possible to make a mistake. That's what makes you think maybe it wasn't, especially when you put a picture up there.

GLENN: And I'm torn on this because I don't want a joke czar.

STU: No.

GLENN: I don't want a joke czar.

STU: Nope.

GLENN: I don't want anybody telling people what they can and can't say, I don't want David Letterman fired for it. I don't want boycotts of David Letterman. I would, however, like a little bit of consistency from CBS. They fired Don Imus over a comment that he made about a comment about a basketball team, you don't know the specifics of anybody and that was the worst thing that anybody has ever said at any time including, kill them all and let God sort them out. It was the worst thing uttered ever. And David Letterman says this about a specific family with a picture, and CBS signs him to a new contract. Now, what Sarah Palin has done is she has demonstrated only to those who care to see and nobody in the mainstream media will see. She has demonstrated, "Oh, really? I could play that game, too." She just took out a comedian. Now, unlike with the with Al Sharpton who pickets and then all of a sudden they find themselves out of a job, I don't agree with that. I don't agree with picketing and then the company fires them and everything else. That kind of pressure is wrong. You've let the people vote with the ratings, and they are going to do that. You mark my words. David Letterman has made a has staked out a position here that unless he changes courses, he is going to be, well, at CBS. He is going to be Katie Couric. They are going to be perfect bookends for the CBS lineup. Katie Couric, all the liberals love her. All the people in these people's circle are on, you got it, Dave, you took her out. You stand strong, Dave. All the regular people, A, don't want you to treat her that way, even if they disagree with her. You don't treat somebody like that.

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."

Glenn Beck has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just to have everyone look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China … the list goes on, but no consequences are paid. Now, the media have called the election for Joe Biden and insist no one can question it. But for many of the more than 71 million people who voted for President Trump, our search for the truth isn't over yet.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn called out the left's long list of alleged corruption that has gone unchecked and stressed that Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process of investigating the multiple allegations of election fraud to ensure our voting systems are fair.

"I don't know about you, but I'm tired. I am worn out. I am fed up!" Glenn said during his opening monologue. "I've had enough. I am tired of exposing corruption, doing our homework, even going overseas and having documents translated to make sure they're exactly right, [and] presenting the evidence ... except, once we expose it, nothing happens. Nobody goes to jail. Nobody pays for a damn thing any more!"
