Jon Stewart reveals his stalker-ish obsession with President Trump

Whatever your politics, you cannot deny that comedian Jon Stewart has a history of attacking the hypocrisy and high ideals of journalism, for his subversive approach to media criticism. Firebrand. What does that mean in the era of President Donald Trump? In a post-Kavanaugh Confirmation Hearing world?

Jon Stewart and Dave Chappelle sat down with CNN's Christiane Amanpour. And Stewart pulled no punches. He said what so many of us have been thinking all along:


Jon Stewart says the President is attacking journalists' ego youtu.be


Smite the bean counters! Chuff. Chuff. But "we the journalists." Chuff. That is the encapsulation of smug journalism.

Stewart hosted the Daily Show back when it was actually sort of funny — sometimes, it was even hilarious. I wonder how he would handle the job today, in this environment, when Trump is President and the press has an ugly infatuation with him, an obsession that pretends to be hatred. A yearning that pretends to be duty, a kind of prowling, stalker-ish fixation on the man and his destruction, completely unwilling to admit that they are, inarguably, a massive reason he rose to power in the first place.

People are tired of the stuffy, (mostly bicoastal) media elites who act like they are the voice of Americans.

People are tired of the stuffy, (mostly bicoastal) media elites who act like they are the voice of Americans. Well, I'm here to tell you that your suspicions are correct. They do not speak for you, America.

You can tell we're knee-deep in a humorless time, now more than ever, when the comedians are rebuking the journalists, when humor holds more power than the words of a journalist.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
