GLENN: Is it curious to anyone that MSNBC and the mainstream media are nonstop on Mel Gibson's racism. Is this a surprise to anyone? I mean, I gave him the benefit of the doubt and I'm like, okay, the guy is completely out of control alcoholic, deep, deep psychological problems the first time. And then he went to rehab and I'm like, okay. Because you want to like Mel Gibson. You're like, okay, all right, maybe he's better now, and you kind of kept your fingers crossed but you wouldn't leave any of your friends or your children alone with him? And so you just kind of went along with it. Then the next outburst happened. I don't remember what it — oh, it was the guy when he was promoting this new movie and he just was like, just angry again. And I'm like, this guy is out of control. I haven't seen a Mel Gibson movie in a long time because you know who the guy is. Now there is this videotape of Mel Gibson where he has threatened to kill his girlfriend and he calls her the N word and I mean, he's a racist, he is a raging lunatic. Okay, so I got it, I got it. Now, how does this affect my life? See, the racism, the institutional racism that is happening now does affect your life. Once you have the message that he is a racist — because racism does exist and Mel Gibson is one.

STU: This is an unbelievable story. He's caught on tape saying the craziest crap I've ever heard.

GLENN: Didn't that happen last time?

STU: It's not shocking but still when a celebrity gets caught in something like that, I mean, jeez.

GLENN: Correct, correct. But running it 24/7 as opposed to —

PAT: The Black Panthers.

GLENN: "I want to kill all white babies."

STU: Yes, yes.

PAT: And maybe back to back. Maybe show racism in America, here's one side of it, here's the other side of it.

GLENN: Yeah. But not exclusively.

STU: No.

GLENN: Not exclusively. They are not running the Black Panthers story.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: And yet they are running the Mel Gibson story.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And the Mel Gibson story is a story, and he is a racist. I mean, there's no way to defend the guy. Which sucks because now all those great movies have been wrecked forever in my head. Not a good guy. But I don't understand the exclusivity of it.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
