Hell has frozen over and light sprinkles of journalism have been spotted

Well, it happened. At least a small part of hell apparently froze over, because a member of the media actually admitted that he shouldn't have dismissed Juanita Broaddrick's accusation against Bill Clinton.

Columnist Richard Cohen, who has worked at The Washington Post since 1968, wrote an opinion piece titled "I thought Juanita Broaddrick wasn't credible. I was wrong."

Juanita Broaddrick is the woman who alleges that Bill Clinton raped her when he was running for Arkansas governor in 1978.

But since the #MeToo movement exploded over a year ago, there has been a tidal shift in the culture, culminating in the tug-of-war over allegations during the Kavanaugh hearings. And one of the biggest takeaways from those hearings, according to those on the Left, is that you always believe the victim. During the hearings, Anita Hill was once again in the spotlight, brought up over and over, and her accusations against Clarence Thomas universally believed in the media. Yet, somehow, some of Bill Clinton's accusers still haven't been extended the same sympathy as Dr. Blasey Ford and Anita Hill.

That's why it is so unusual to hear a Bill Clinton supporter admit he may have been wrong about Broaddrick. It's twenty years too late and obviously influenced by the #MeToo movement, but Cohen admits to dismissing Broaddrick's claims during Clinton's presidency as "just another wild accusation made by twisted Clinton haters."

NBC's Lisa Myers recently told Slate:

I tested her [Broaddrick's] story every way I could, again and again and again. And no detail ever changed – it never got better, it never got worse. It was always the same.

Cohen wonders why Monica Lewinsky is now totally characterized as a victim, while Broaddrick is ignored. He says it might have something to do with Broaddrick being a Trump supporter. Nah, that couldn't have anything to do with it.

Cohen writes:

I remember refusing to deal with Broaddrick's allegations because I simply chose to believe Clinton was not a rapist... My position has proved naïve.

Whether dealing with the Clinton or the Kavanaugh cases, all political camps should tread carefully in their certainty about the truth. And to do that requires a huge dose of something even more elusive than the truth… humility.

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."
