MSM: Recognize Your Sins and Apologize to the American People
Glenn Beck Program ^ | July 13, 2017 | Glenn Beck

Posted on 07/13/2017 7:46:10 PM PDT by TBP

As we’re going through this scandal of Donald Trump, I’m really trying very hard to look at all sides and stay as reasonable as I can. And it is really difficult.

It’s very difficult to watch people in the media who have never woken up from their slumber. They’ve never done any soul-searching. They don’t understand why Donald Trump won. I mean, the win of Donald Trump really changed my life, because I couldn’t figure it out either. So I started doing some soul-searching. What have I missed? What’s happened? What does it mean?

Soul-Searching Truth That soul-searching has led me to the truth.

It’s not that Russia was meddling with the election. It’s not that people in the country are racist. It’s the fact that people in the country are hurting, they’re in real trouble and they’re on their last straw.

I’ve talked to people all over the country who are supporting Donald Trump without really wanting to — but they don’t know what else to do because he’s their last hope. They also know if Donald Trump goes away, the left and the media will do the same thing to Mike Pence. You could dig up John F. Kennedy, start his heart again, throw some more meat on his bones and the Democrats would destroy him . . . if he were a Republican candidate. The media would tear him apart if he were Republican. By the way, I don’t think JFK would — I know JFK wouldn’t — be welcome in the Democratic Party today, and I don’t think Mitch McConnell would accept him because he would be too conservative in today’s Republican Party.

Fake News and Team Jerseys Last night, I saw Sebastian Gorka, a low-level guy at the White House, on CNN with Anderson Cooper. Apparently is a guy who just likes to get on and say inflammatory things in the media, and he was the one last night willing to just say anything.

I’m watching this, and hearing him say things like, “Well, this is just fake news.” And Anderson Cooper says, “How can this be fake news? This email that we’re discussing was released by Donald Trump, Jr. We didn’t make it up. It came from him.” Gorka replies, “It’s fake news. It’s fake news.”

I mean, it’s crazy. And I could see it in Anderson’s eyes — he really didn’t understand — what the hell is happening?

But is anybody in the media actually going to take the time to figure it out?

You Didn’t — and Don’t — Care About the Truth Let me explain it to you, media.

You really didn’t care about the Whitewater scandal. You didn’t care about that. That was, what, 30 years ago? You kind of cared about it. And there were a few things like Chinagate or Filegate that actually rose to the level of a “gate” for you.

But the Clinton rape scandals? You say you care about women and oppression of women — but you didn’t really care about that. You didn’t care about Paula Jones. You didn’t care about the most powerful man on earth exerting his oppressive white privilege power over Monica Lewinsky, a young, impressionable intern. You didn’t care about that.

You didn’t care about Sandy Berger after 9/11. You didn’t care that he went in and stole documents from the National Archives, that he put them in his socks and underpants and left the archives — something that you and I would go to jail for. You didn’t care about that story. You didn’t care that he got his national security clearance back. But boy, did you care that George Bush gave a speech with a sign that said, “Mission accomplished,” behind him. Oh, my gosh, that was the biggest scandal on the planet, when an aircraft carrier that went to war with a mission, completed their mission and came home, my gosh, did you care.

You didn’t care — you still don’t care — about Van Jones and his organization starting the entire “Bush hates black people and lets them die” campaign. You didn’t care about that. In fact, you’ve hired Van Jones and welcomed him into your ranks.

You didn’t care about Michael Moore’s integrity or his hateful rhetoric or Cindy Sheehan’s hateful rhetoric. But, boy oh boy, somebody puts out a campaign piece where they say, “We’re targeting these districts,” and it’s the most violent, awful rhetoric of all time.

Collusion with Russia? Okay, how about this one: Ted Kennedy, at the height of the Cold War, going over and colluding with Russia. You didn’t care about that. How about this one? The Secretary of State going around the law and selling uranium to Russia. You didn’t care about that. But, oh my gosh, Donald Trump? Russia?

You used to love Russia. For the last eight years, we only heard about how great Russia and Vladimir Putin were — while he was throwing reporters off rooftops! “He’s a great guy.” But now Donald Trump thinks Putin is a good guy? Oh, the horror!

You didn’t care that Americans were being targeted intentionally by the IRS. You didn’t care.

You didn’t care about Benghazi. You didn’t care about the Hillary scandal with all of the emails and all of the secure information that she had to cut and paste to be able to get out of secure, locked rooms. You didn’t care about that. But, oh my gosh, have you heard of Valerie Plame? Valerie Plame, oh my gosh, it’s the greatest tragedy since Ronald Reagan blew up the moon!

You go on and on and on about dangerous weapons and how dangerous weapons will fall into the hands of terrorists and killers. Yet you don’t care about the attorney general taking guns and illegally selling them over the border in Fast and Furious. Those guns fell into the hands of someone who killed an American border guard and are being used by terrorists in France — but you didn’t, and still don’t, care about that. Where were the calls for our former attorney general to pay and answer for his crimes and collusion?

Former Vice President Dick Cheney, I mean Darth Vader, he was the worst man ever. “He was our father.” He was the worst.

Did you hear about all of the no-bid contracts that Dick Cheney gave to Halliburton? Halliburton! They’re bidding the Death Star. Halliburton, no-bid contracts, Dick Cheney, Star Wars, run for your life!

Let’s not mention that Barack Obama was also giving no-bid contracts to Halliburton. That’s okay. But if George Bush ever used the “H” word, you sure reminded us of the evils of no-bid contracts with Halliburton.

By the way, Hillary’s her right-hand woman, Huma Abedin, has deep family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and some of the most extremist Muslims in the Middle East — but that’s no big deal. You didn’t — and don’t — care about that. And her freaky husband who always has a wiener in his hand also had Hillary’s emails, but I’m sure he’s trustworthy. Let’s not make anything out of that. Let’s just not talk about it. Because if we get into that, we might have to talk about how Hillary was an actual disciple of Saul Alinsky.

Saul who? Oh, have you seen that new show Better Call Saul? That must be what they’re talking about. It’s so funny. Or Obama’s ties to Reverend Wright, probably the least radical person in his childhood. Why would you talk about Obama’s childhood when Mitt Romney gave some kid a haircut in 1965? How could you possibly bring something up about Barack Obama’s childhood when you have something on Mitt Romney from 1965 — a haircut, a dog on the roof. I mean, at the time, you could put your dog or your cat or your children in the car without seat belts, practically strap them on the radio antenna or the hood of the car while you were driving down the highway — and nobody would have said anything in 1965. But look into the past of Barack Obama? Only a racist or bigot would do that.

Reality Check Here’s the thing, media. There are actual things hurting everyday Americans — today.

“I promise you, everybody is going to get $2,500 back, you’re going to save $2,500 on your health care.” You touted that and called everybody a bigot and a racist who said the math didn’t work. Now, maybe you were ahead of us, using that Common Core math. So, as long as you can show your work, it doesn’t matter if the numbers didn’t add up. This actually affected people, in a negative way.

You want to tell us about all the people that are going to die if Obamacare gets repealed or replaced? How about the estimated 80,000 who could have lived if Obamacare hadn’t been passed? How about all the people that have lost their jobs, lost their health care, haven’t had a raise since 9/11? You helped promise the lie of Obamacare and sold them down the river into the slavery of government health care — because they’re going to save $2,500. The CBO hadn’t even scored it yet, but you were sure it was right. Health care has gone up 140 percent, not down — and you are still selling the lie.

So maybe you can understand why so many Americans don’t trust you, and aren’t outraged by THIS scandal. Many of us, many who voted for Donald Trump, are outraged, but we know you’re actually more afraid of Mike Pence, as Al Franken admitted.

Many of us on the right aren’t happy about the things Trump does or says. We know he doesn’t always tell the truth, but millions of Americans have put up with YOUR lies for decades — and you NEVER seem to have a moment of clarity or humility or honesty.

You and academia jam FAIRNESS down our throats. You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

So, as a paid observer of news, culture and people, forgive me for not jumping to defend Donald Jr’s actions…but MEDIA…forgive me for not seeing things the way you do. I understand why one third of the country is so mad and why they look to President Trump as a savior. It’s all about righteous indignation. Many of these Americans haven’t had a raise since 9/11 and are seeing their savings disappear and quite frankly are being raped by the education system. Their culture is being torn apart and you don’t seem to care that the biggest corporate greed is coming from the “non-profits” of education that have billions in endowments, yet they’ve all raised tuition at double the speed of health care. That’s another thing you don’t care about.

You don’t care because you live the life of a protected class. Those defending Trump are defending their lifestyle and trying to feed their families. Your record shows you’ll lie, ignore, distract and cover for treasonous acts if it fits your agenda for ratings, ideology or just taking the path of least resistance.

Somewhere, listening to my voice, are those Americans who are hurting and know the score. They are actually willing to stop this bickering if only someone on your side would recognize that those who stand for the Constitution aren’t bigots, aren’t racists and they don’t want to starve children. They will stop this insanity if you would only be truthful, recognize your sins of the past — and apologize to the American people.

Beck seems to misinterpret what Gorka is saying, but otherwise, this is a BRILLIANT takedown of the so-called "mainstream" media. Definitely worth reading and listening to.

Don’t hold your breath on that one, Glenn.
Most the media don’t think themselves capable of actual sin, not like anyone who would consider voting republican. That is a mortal sin to most the media!

I’m not interested in an apology from the MSM or anything Glenn Beck thinks or says.

SiriusXM replaced him in the morning with David Webb. Now I have something intelligent to listen to those mornings I’m on the road.

Glen, take all those interminable tangents and take another tangential hike. Why anyone listens to his insufferable drivel is inexplicable.

-——Did you actually read what he said? it’s great stuff.——

What he wrote was good and spot on except for the minor fact, he was part of the “sins” committed....

Plus the MSM doesn’t care a lick about “truth” they see their job, calling in life to drive an agenda and spin a narrative...

It’s been that way for decades, just now they don’t care to hide behind a wall, the thin veneer of trust...

Webb is good, but Glenn is the only host I know who can carry on substantive discussions of the Trump Jr. situation, the mainstream media’s abuses, Lena Dunham’s dog, whether they’re called sneakers or tennis shoes, and quantum physics, all in the space of one three hour show.

What he says here is quite brilliant, thorough, accurate, and on point. It’s a thorough recitation of the dishonesty, bias, and abuse of the media. Useful for any critic of the MSM.

This is Glenn Beck cr@p.

He's telling us today that, after six months of Donald Trump as our president, he only now gets that Trump winning was the only opportunity for many in the US to push back against a bad Establishment that's created no hope?

Shove it, Glenn. This has been obvious for the longest time and you've been calling all of us insane for this.

You are the insane idiot, Mr. Beck.

Exactly right. Leftism is a religion and a mental disease all rolled into one.

Wow! Glenn was lucid here. This is really a great summation of the past 40 years or so. This should be required reading in every journalism school.
