Stu Blog: Quick guide for journalists wishing to do their jobs

Here's a quick handy news coverage tool for journalists on the run.

Should you include a specific angle in your news coverage? Ask yourself these questions first before writing a story.

1) Does the angle I'm presenting have anything to do with the story I'm writing about?

2) If yes, does it matter?

Shockingly, if the answer to 1 is not yes, there's no need to debate number 2.

Let's test it.

Story: Arizona shooting

Angle: Sarah Palin's responsibility

1) No, there is no evidence whatsoever that this shooter was a fan of Sarah Palin in any way.

2) No need to ask number two.

Now, let's see how the media actually handled the story.

Story: Arizona shooting

Angle: Sarah Palin's responsibility

1) There is no evidence whatsoever that this shooter was a fan of Sarah Palin in any way.  But, we  think that someone like the shooter could, eventually, someday, be influenced by someone like Sarah Palin at some point, to do something sort of terrible to someone sort of like someone

involved in this story.

2) Of course it matters! It's Sarah Palin's fault!

Because of how incredibly incompetent the media has been on the first question, we've spent much of our time proving that there was no tie at all.  But since the media basically skipped question number one, let's talk question two anyway, because it's the more important question by far.

The truth is, if this shooter HAD been a fan of Sarah Palin, it still would not have been Sarah Palin's fault (unless Sarah Palin specifically was telling this idiot to kill people, which she would never do.) Giving your opinion on a public debate does not open you up to murder charges.

For example, the Discovery Channel gunman said specifically that he was acting on Al Gore's teachings.  That doesn't make Al Gore responsible, even partially.  Gore uses the most extreme rhetoric imaginable when he speaks about global warming.  Essentially, he says that if we don't act, the entire human race will be eliminated.  He insinuates that his opponents know this is true and ignore it so they can personally benefit.  Think of that charge.  "They know millions will die, but they lie about it so they can selfishly have a nicer boat." Is there a more extreme charge? Is there rhetoric that is more dire?

Still, you simply cannot blame him for inspiring the Discovery shooter.  He is 100 percent innocent.  I can't stand Al Gore's opinions or how he presents them, yet, I'm enough of a man to admit that he can't be held responsible for one person of 300,000,000 in this country misinterpreting what he says and turning it into violence.

I simply don't want to win the debate badly enough to stoop that low.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
