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.
