The Reason Why Glenn Beck Stormed Off CNN Interview Shows Everything Wrong With Mainstream Media

Published

on

Conservative radio personality Glenn Beck made a splash in the news on Sunday after he stormed off during an interview with CNN, an incident which sent the media into their usual form of hysterics as they attempted to paint Beck up as some sort of crazed, angry lunatic.

Beck had agreed to speak with CNN host Brian Stelter on h is show, “Reliable Sources” about Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy and how the mainstream media is playing a huge roll in keeping America divided along political lines.

Things slowly dissolve over the course of the interview, ending with Beck storming off.

Beck began the interview by issuing an indictment of the mainstream media’s coverage of the Trump administration, its immigration policies, and explained why the media are unable to reach Trump voters.

“You have become me, circa 2009 — and you don’t see it … none of you [in the media] are willing to listen to what you’re doing, and you’re dividing us even more,” Beck said. “We’ve had two people threaten the lives of either a congressman’s child or the president’s child. Where are the people who were so worried about language and the tone on television?”

“Don’t you understand what you’re doing? You’re driving people into the arms of Donald Trump,” Beck explained.

Stelter replied wanting to know “what is the right answer, then, if we don’t point out the lies?” The exchange that followed exemplified Beck’s point about the media:

BECK: Well, first of all, you have to recognize the mistakes of the past. I can’t take this border issue, because I wasn’t allowed into anybody’s circle after my audience raised $3 million, and we risked everything to go down to the border, and we brought churches together, we actually fed the homeless. I was mocked for bringing them soccer balls, which people now say is a good thing, because at least they have soccer balls at summer camp. And on the other side, no one in the media would even listen. No one would listen when I said —

STELTER: Glenn, that’s not true. There was lots of coverage —

BECK: I had DHS people coming —

STELTER: I remember you going to the border in 2014. Obama policy might have been ugly. It’s a lot worse now.

BECK: Was there this kind of coverage —

STELTER: Of course not. There weren’t as many kids in jail.

BECK: Of course — oh, stop it. Stop it.

STELTER: Stop what? There were not as many kids in jail.

BECK: You’re telling me — so, it’s the number. So, what’s the number, Brian, that we care about putting kids in cages? What’s the number that we start caring about when we’re separating families?

STELTER: The more there are, the more we care.

Believe it or not, the interview actually got worse from there as Stelter responded to Beck calling for the media to be more self-reflective by mocking his use of a chalkboard and made things more personal by asking a business related question concerning layoffs at his company.

“Wow, Brian, thanks a lot. I think that’s the most ridiculous question I’ve ever heard. I’m sitting here ready to talk to you about the detaining of children and parents … we want to stop it and you want to play those games? Have a nice day,” Beck said as he walked off camera.

This is the stupidity of the left-wing media put on full display right here. These folks do not at all care about having hard discussions. They just want to insult and belittle instead of actually creating arguments of substance to back up their twisted and sickeningly depraved worldview.

Kudos to Beck for not taking this garbage from Stelter.

Putin Puffs Out His Chest: Crossing ‘Red Lines’ Will Prompt ‘Asymmetrical’ Response

Putin has been extremely antsy as of late.

Russia

It appears that US President Joe Biden is really getting under the skin of Russian President Dictator Vladimir Putin. These leaders of the world two preeminent superpowers have been trading barbs for weeks now, and on a range of subjects.  The latest focus of their fury has to do with the Kremlin’s continued aggression against Ukraine, where Russian military forces are lining just over the border, with “invasion stripes” painted on their vehicles to prevent friendly fire. This is a tacit admission that there will be fire, and Biden isn’t going to stand for it. The US first sent warships in the direction of the Black Sea in an attempt to deter Putin from poking the bear.  The Russian government responded by blocking the entrance to the area and warning that America’s maneuvers were “adversarial”. Biden responded by sanctioning Russia over a major hacking attack that took place months ago. Now, just ahead of what is believed to be an inevitable Russian invasion of Ukraine, Putin is once again puffing out his chest. Russian President Vladimir Putin, in his annual State of the Nation speech, warned on Wednesday against provoking his country, promising a swift retaliation against anyone who crossed “red lines.“ Moscow will respond “harshly,” “quickly” and “asymmetrically” to foreign provocations, Putin told an audience of Russia’s top officials and lawmakers, adding that he “hoped” no foreign actor would cross Russia’s “red lines,” according to a Reuters translation. Russia is also facing international condemnation for their treatment of journalist Alexei Navalny, who is believed to be at death’s door at a Russian prison hospital.  Joe Biden has said that Russia would “pay a price” if Navalny were to perish in custody of the government.

DOJ Opens Investigation into Minneapolis Police Department

The investigation will feature the department’s civil rights division.

On Tuesday, Derek Chauvin was found guilty on all charges in the death of George Floyd. Chauvin was seen on video kneeling on the neck of Floyd for nearly 9 minutes as the restrained man slowly suffocated, in a moment that has haunted our nation for a year. Now that Chauvin is off to prison, and a likely, lengthy appeals process, the Department of Justice is now hoping to find out exactly what went wrong in Minneapolis, and whether or not there is some systemic issue with the police department itself. Attorney General Merrick Garland announced Wednesday that the Justice Department will be conducting an investigation of law enforcement in Minneapolis following the death of George Floyd. The announcement comes one day after a Hennepin County jury found former police officer Derek Chauvin guilty of second degree murder for killing Floyd. “Yesterday’s verdict in the state criminal trial does not address potentially systemic policing issues in Minneapolis,” Garland said during a press conference. Garland said the probe will be a “fully comprehensive review” that will look into whether the Minneapolis Police Department has a “pattern or practice of unconstitutional or unlawful policing.” He specificed that this includes “using excessive force, including during protests,” as well as “discriminatory conduct and whether its treatment of those with behavioral health disabilities is unlawful.” The DOJ will utilize their civil rights division in the investigation, and the Attorney General said that the move could protect “good cops” from their not-so-pristine peers in the precinct. “I strongly believe that good officers do not want to work in systems that allow bad practices,” Garland said. “Good officers welcome accountability because accountability is an essential part of building trust with the community and public safety requires public trust.” Chauvin was moved to prison on Wednesday, and promptly…
