THIS is how the press is losing their power

You know what I'd love to see? I mean, don't hold your breath on this, but I think it would go a long way to healing wounds both in the country as a whole, but especially between the White House and the press. If we could get, I don't know, say 100 plus newspapers or something, to all get together and publish editorials admitting that they gave President Obama a pass when they probably shouldn't have, and yes they're attacking President Trump in ways they would never have even dared in the previous administration. Just admit that, and then maybe we could move forward in honesty.

Maybe the press would have a rebirth in credibility. Heck, maybe the Trump administration would stop calling you "Fake News."

Well, 100 plus newspapers have actually gotten together to make a coordinated statement that will be published in three days. But instead of making any kind of attempt at healing wounds, they've actually decided to do the exact opposite. Led by the Boston Globe, over 100 papers will designate August 16th to attack the President's attacks on them. I'm sorry, but the media in this country gets even more clueless and out of touch by the second. I didn't think it was possible, but they're actually getting dumber.

Now, do I like it when the President attacks the media? Of course not. But the media hasn't done themselves any favors here. They must think we're too stupid to recognize the difference between what Trump has said about the media and what Obama actually did to them. In 2009 Brenda Lee, a reporter with White House press credentials, was dragged away from the press area by the Secret Service for asking the President about traditional marriage. Was there a joint discussion among the media to support reporters in the White House press pool? In 2015 the Obama State Department kicked a conservative journalist out of an Iran nuke deal event for apparently nothing more than being a conservative journalist. Did you ever hear about a media-wide support campaign for the Obama administration not to silence the press?

No one's gonna care if the media suddenly has their feelings hurt.

And those were just the minor cases of attacks on the press. The Obama Justice Department launched an all-out war on the media. They seized phone records from reporters at the Associated Press. They put Fox News reporter James Rosen on surveillance, tracking his movements and seizing his personal emails. Can you imagine if Trump did that today to Jim Acosta? The media would be calling for impeachment. But they barely lifted an eyebrow to eight years of being pushed around, silenced and - in the case of Ben Rhodes and the Iran Deal - straight up lied to and turned into a propaganda machine.

No one's gonna care if the media suddenly has their feelings hurt. I don't like what the President says about the media, in fact, I hate it. But I also hate their blatant one-sided reporting and lack of consistency. 100, 500… they could get a thousand publications to write attack editorials on Thursday. It won't do what they want it to. It's really only going to make things worse. We need to be focused on repairing damage, not adding to it. How about this? Start with an admission of guilt and an apology. Only then will you have the credibility to do your jobs properly.

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."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."
