Pat Gray: Leno rips NBC




Jay Leno Rips NBC in Monologue

PAT: Jay Leno is so angry about what's going on at NBC, did you see his monologue last night? Here's just a little piece of it.

CALLER: Happy birthday to Katie Couric. It's Katie Couric's birthday. She left NBC for another network. I've got to give her a call, see how that's working out. As you may have heard, there's a rumor floating around we were cancelled. I heard it coming in this morning on the radio.

VOICE: I heard it, too.

LENO: So far nobody said anything to me. But you know, if we did get cancelled, give us time to maybe do some traveling.

VOICE: That would be wonderful.

LENO: In fact, I understand Fox is beautiful this time of year, beautiful this time of year. (Applause). I don't think, I don't think there's any truth to the rumor. See, it's always been my experience NBC only cancels you when you are in first place. So we're fine. (Laughter). We're actually okay. The justice department announced they will conduct an antitrust review of Comcast's proposal deal, you know, the merge with NBC. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Antitrust review, which is the relationship I have with NBC, antitrust. (Laughter). There's an antitrust, yeah, yeah, yeah.

PAT: I mean, that's an angry rant. You see how angry, NBC? Do you see it? Do you see? I mean, to air that kind of dirty laundry during the show on NBC, something's going radically wrong there. But the debacle at NBC is one of the worst in TV history. At the height of Jay Leno's popularity five years ago, he was number one. And he had been for, what, ten years? They announce he will be replaced with the weird, goofy, bizarre Conan O'Brien. Then to keep Leno once that replacement finally happens and he's still number one, they inexplicably give Leno a prime time talk show every night five nights a week. Everybody knew, you don't have to be in television to know that can't work. That's not going to work! Nobody wants to watch a talk show at 10:00 Eastern, 9:00 in the rest of the country, in prime time. You just, I mean, after the news and there's nothing else on, that's when you want a talk show. Winding down for the day, going to sleep at night. And then O'Brien has been abysmal, he's lost, I don't know, three million viewers or whatever. David Letterman who's been in third place for ten years is now beating Conan O'Brien by two million viewers a night. So now in an effort to fix this debacle, what's being discussed is that they will have Leno come in from 11:35 to 12:05 and he will do the monologue, maybe have a guest and then, and then Conan will do the Tonight Show, it will be a Jay Leno Show leading up to 12:05, that way apparently there's some kind of penalty NBC has to pay, I guess, to Conan O'Brien if they take him off any sooner than they already agreed to. At this point you just cut your losses. You just say, we really screwed up badly; Conan, bye bye, go do whatever you want. He's proven he can't win at that time of night. Let some other network take him, pay the penalty, gave him his money, move on, put Leno back on the Tonight Show, make everybody happy. But, you know, people don't like to admit their mistakes and I'm sure Zucker or whoever's responsibility at NBC won't take responsibility for that debacle, either, any more than Barack Obama has taken actual real responsibility for the problems of the country.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.
