Journalists are ceding their roles to the SJW mobs and are paying the price

The first thing you see when you walk into Mercury Studios, home of Blaze Media, is a mural of David and Goliath. It's a battle scene, two stories tall. The Goliath figure, poised to stomp down on David, bears the New York Times logo. David, TheBlaze's red logo for a head, aims a slingshot up at the giant.

Next to the mural are the words "David slew Goliath with five smooth stones."

Yesterday, USA Today ran an article, "Twitter rips Savannah Guthrie for 'appalling' interview with Nicholas Sandmann on 'Today.'" Well, for one, who cares what Twitter has to say? Isn't that what got us into this whole mess to begin with? Listening to the Twitter mob? Complain about how powerful the Twitter mob is all you want, but it won't stop until we stop giving them power. Yeah, it turns out that giving every single person a megaphone makes it a little hard to hear anything important.

Remember when society wouldn't put up with this kind of bullying behavior. Remember when threats on a person's life were considered unlawful? Remember when hysteria was laughed at? Remember when kids who had tantrums were scolded? Remember when adults had dignity and certainly didn't throw tantrums and make demands?

Journalism is a business, plain and simple. So, like any business, they will do whatever they need to survive. That's why Journalism has become an outrage machine. If places like New York Times and the Washington Post can distract people from the fact that newspapers are outdated and irrelevant, that Joe Rogan is more influential and timely than they are, that their days are numbered, then they will do it anyway they can. Journalism isn't a government institution. There are no requirements to be a journalist. There's no ethics board that will punish a journalist or news network for intentionally spreading lies or doing their job badly. There is no licensing. So of course they feel no real duty to uphold the high-minded principles they claim to cherish.

Journalism is a business, plain and simple. So, like any business, they will do whatever they need to survive.

The job of journalist used to be gatekeeping and filtering. Journalists went through all the information available and chose what was most important. Now, with the internet, with everyone having a camera, with the rise of citizen journalism, the job of journalist is obsolete. We can decide for ourselves what's important. And, in what has become fatal for journalists, we can determine definitively whether or not journalists are telling the truth. It turns out that they've been bluffing us quite a bit. Their whole self-righteous crusade is actually a farce.

We need something else. Something new. It's out there. We just have to do the work ourselves to find it. And we have to wade through all the muck, to suffer through the deafening noise of people shouting their opinions constantly, to break through this darkness and remind the world that life can be better.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.
