Is Glenn Beck Pro-Amnesty Like Fox News And Rupert Murdoch? Favors McCain Over Hayworth

Bookmark and Share

I watch Glenn Beck pretty much every night. I'm not a "Beck hater" and find that he does present some great information (that others have researched and done the ground work on) in an easy to watch format. His shows on the founding father's and American history have been great. I have both praised and criticized Beck, You can search for "Glenn Beck" in the search box and find a mixed bag of my thoughts on his actions and coverage.

However, there are some disturbing trends that I notice with his show and it makes me ask the question "Is Glenn Beck Pro-Amnesty for illegal aliens?"

First though let me "put down my World of Warcraft and come out of my mother's basement" as Beck would describe any of us American citizens who dare to utter a word of thought online. Beck often debases the industry that is blogging or running a website as some sort of shallow pursuit that should hold no meaning to anyone. In essence he laughs at our first amendment rights as citizens to voice our concerns or critiques. He does have a point with some of the banter online, but he often lumps everyone into the same boat whether they are actually thinkers with a point or just those spouting garbage online with no thought. So of course that makes me wonder... "Question with boldness..." ... unless of course that questioning appears online and is not funded by a multi-billion dollar corporation or is 100% in agreement with Beck. Make of it what you will, but I in no way wish for Beck to go away.

My questioning of Glenn Beck's stance on illegal immigration comes up because of a pattern I have noticed from him and a pattern I've noticed of Fox News. Let me start off by stating quite clearly that Rupert Murdoch recently came out and declared his pro-amnesty stance. Murdoch is the CEO of News Corp, which owns Fox News. In a recent high profile meeting with New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and other CEO's Murdoch joined a coalition called the Partnership for a New American Economy pushing for amnesty for illegal aliens.

Chief executives of several major corporations, including Hewlett-Packard, Boeing, Disney and News Corp., are joining Mayor Michael Bloomberg to form a coalition advocating for immigration reform - including a path to legal status for all undocumented immigrants now in the United States.


Bloomberg and Rupert Murdoch, chairman and CEO of News Corp., appeared together Thursday [June 24, 2010] on Fox News to discuss the effort.

"We're just going to keep the pressure on the congressmen," Murdoch said. "I think we can show to the public the benefits of having migrants and the jobs that go with them."

Bloomberg added, "Somebody has to lead and explain to the country why this is in our interest."

Seems pretty clear to me that Murdoch is pro-amnesty. Not only that but he is for even more immigration. I don't want to play the "high unemployment" card, but it must be played. We currently have massive unemployment and we have the top CEO's of companies coming out and declaring that we need even more immigrants to compete with the unemployed, that we need to legalize illegal aliens and that this is the only way that our country will succeed. I find that a slap in the face to those looking for work and businesses that have gone under because of unfair competition by unscrupulous businesses hiring illegal aliens under the table for unfair competition purposes.

OK, but since Murdoch is pro-illegal alien and pro-amnesty does that make Fox News pro-illegal alien?

That is an excellent question that I have been pondering for a few days now. I have watched my share of Fox News - always with a skeptical eye - and have noticed a disturbing pattern recently. Every time border security comes up there is John McCain, the father of the last amnesty bill with the late Senator Ted Kennedy, gracing my screen on Fox News. This despicable creature is given the chance to spout how tough he is on illegal immigration. He touts his "experience" as the "senator of a border state" for nearly 3 decades as his badge to know how to handle illegal immigration. The only problem is that during his tenure, illegal immigration has gone through the roof and McCain has done nothing but put forth bill after bill to encourage even more illegal immigration. Fox News discusses Arizona's SB1070 and magically McCain appears on screen as if he had anything to do with Arizona finally trying to enforce the law.

McCain is no friend of those who want immigration laws enforced. So why is Fox News giving him so much time over the past few months? On top of this they have given little to no time to McCain's Republican opponent, the former congressman J.D. Hayworth, who actually wrote a book demanding that immigration laws be enforced and standing strong on the issue. Why the bias?

Those are the first two things that worry me. Murdoch being pro-amnesty and Fox News then pushing for John "father of amnesty" McCain.

So where does Glenn Beck fit into all of this?

I'm glad you asked.

First, is Beck's continued rant of immigration teasers. I don't know how many times he has said "we're going to talk about immigration this week" and then he never gets around to it. It gets railroaded off the show quicker than Van Jones from the White House. It is almost as if at the next commercial break Murdoch has called him and said "Oh no you're not!" The immigration pieces never appear. Even with Arizona in the headlines for weeks Beck has avoided the issue on his TV program. It speaks of some sort of "self-muzzling" or someone else shutting him down.

Second, is Beck's stance that the borders need to be secured. Even the godfather, Congressman Luis "F*&@ American Citizens, bring on the amnesty!" Gutierrez will state that the borders need to be secured. So this statement means nothing.

The third thing that troubles me is that Beck occasionally says that illegal aliens are "modern day slaves". While they surely are being taken advantage of, these criminals in no way compare to the true slaves of the past in this country. The slaves in America's history were brought here against their will in chains, paid nothing and occasionally beaten or even killed. Illegal aliens have come here of their own accord and can leave of their own accord. They have no similarities at all. Which leads me to the thought process that maybe Beck is truly playing the "slave angle" for ulterior motives. Is his solution to simply "free all these slaves"? How would you free them? Why, you would turn them into non-slaves of course! You would grant them citizenship and the right to vote. You would grant them a civil rights bill. All of this for breaking into our country and coming here illegally.

Fourth, Beck has continued to attack and destroy campaigns of those who have spoken out firmly against illegal immigration. The one that comes to mind immediately was Debra Medina who was running against the pro-amnesty Governor of Texas, Rick "in-state tuition for illegal aliens" Perry.

Debra Medina
"Inviting an invasion... will destroy us," Medina stated regarding illegal immigration. "Failure to enforce state and federal laws has contributed to abuse of property and humanity all along the Texas border. We can no longer turn a blind eye on the situation and will, in order to protect our citizens and their property, take matters into our own hands to insure peace and protection along the Texas border."

There is no doubt where Medina stood on illegal immigration and it was a breath of fresh air after listening to the windbag that is Perry, with his double-talk and wishy-washy stances.

In comes Beck. In an interview Beck avoided many meaningful issues when talking to Medina and instead tried to play a game of gotcha! The transcript below doesn't show the truth of the interview, but it was clear Beck was angling for a way to take Medina down. On a bad phone connection that was breaking up, Beck asked Medina, a non-politician and inexperienced "Tea Party" candidate, whether she knew there were those accusing her of being a "9/11 truther".

GLENN: I have when I said that I was going to have you on, you can't imagine the mail pro and con that I received. There was a theme that ran against you and that is you are a 9/11 Truther.

MEDINA: Well, there's lots of mud that people would like to throw at Debra Medina and make stick. The truth is I'm an everyday ordinary person. I am fighting for the things that our founders fought for, those very basic principles of a constitutional republic, and I'm going to champion people that hold their government accountable, hold me accountable but that's the first time I've heard that accusation. So that's an interesting one.

GLENN: Right. Here's then let me be more frank and ask you the question: Do you believe the government was any way involved with the bringing down of the World Trade Centers on 9/11?

MEDINA: I don't, I don't have all of the evidence there, Glenn. So I don't.

The interview went on and Beck continued to try and corner her. He questioned whether her staff were "9/11 truthers". The only thing that Medina said was that there have been some interesting questions asked about 9/11, but if you listen to the audio of the clip it gives a very different perspective on the interview knowing that she had a hard time hearing him.

Of course the papers and Beck were blaring that Medina was a "9/11 truther" the next day and he repeated it time and time again on his show up until the primary with Perry. The media was gleeful in their reporting as it gave them the chance to destroy the "Tea Party" movement. Beck basically destroyed this pro immigration enforcement candidate. Medina lost to Perry. She may have lost anyway, but Beck was the nail in her coffin.

He finished his "interview" with her that day in the following way.

GLENN: Yeah. Okay, Debra, thank you very much. I appreciate it and best of luck to you.

MEDINA: Thank you, Glenn.

GLENN: You bet. Bye bye. I think

Beck's ending comment of "Bye bye. I think" to Medina is kind of ominous in a way. It's almost as if he was asking himself if this was good enough to end her candidacy, if he accomplished his mission.

He went on to declare his love for Rick Perry

GLENN: I think I can write her off the list. Let me take another look at Kay Bailey Hutchison if I have to. Rick, I think you and I could French kiss right now.

Whether his attack on Medina was over immigration or whether it was for some other motive (such as a GOP action) is unclear, but the interview seems suspect. What makes me question whether the move is over immigration is because of future actions by Beck.

Following on this pattern of destruction is the most recent strafing action taken by Beck and company. This one focused in Arizona in the senatorial primary race between John "illegal alien > American Citizen" McCain and J.D. Hayworth. I have already noted Fox News's pushing of John McCain, but Beck is pushing for him as well, equating McCain to the "devil we know". The flaw in his assertion that Hayworth is the "devil we don't know" being that Hayworth served in congress for nearly a decade in the house casting many votes and speaking out and being vocal. He has also been a talk show host for years. We most certainly know that Hayworth is not some "Johnny come lately" (like McCain recently found his immigration enforcement religion, just in time for the election! Go figure.)

JD Hayworth
The latest slam on Hayworth is that he appeared in an infomercial for a company showing you how to get government grants. No doubt this was brought to light by the McCain campaign. Totally ignoring the content of what Hayworth says in the infomercial, Beck goes off on a rant that Hayworth is pushing for you to take government funds and waste it on obscene vacations and a big lavish lifestyle. In other words Beck is a liar on this issue. I have watched the infomercial video (see below). The interview portions of Hayworth show him pushing the value of getting a government grant to start a business and hire people and maybe move on to buying your own home and advancing in this country.

Glenn Beck

GLENN: Hang on. Do we have the J. D. Hayworth infomercial audio, because it just doesn't get any better than this? Here's a guy who is running as a different kind of politician in Arizona and, boy, boy, do I wish it were true because I think this audience know how I feel about John McCain, but to replace John McCain, a guy, a devil you already know and he's a devil, with a guy that you're going, well, wait a minute.

STU: Not the devil. A devil. Just want to make sure.

GLENN: No. The devil is located somewhere else. Here is J. D. Hayworth in a commercial that he did.

JD Hayworth Government Grants Infomercial

Beck went on to declare JD Hayworth dead and to put things into his mouth that he never said in the above video. However, why let truth get in the way right?

GLENN: That's fantastic. So, what was my prediction last week?

STU: You may or may not have predicted the end of his political career after this infomercial was uttered.

GLENN: No. I do believe I did say -- I said his career is over. I'm declaring his career over.


GLENN: I mean, I think the problem here, J. D. Is you're, like, get some of this cash.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Get some of this free money!

Stu: It's not them taking free money in some different, unethical form. It's the idea that taking the free money in the first place is the problem.

PAT: We'll take the taxpayers for hundreds of billions of dollars month after month after month, from my one-bedroom apartment, and you can, too. Never pay it back.

GLENN: This guy is -- this is great.

The real question is did Hayworth know how the infomercial producers were going to edit the show later? They intersperse Hayworth's statement with people spouting about how they received grants of "free money" from the government and are living large and never have to pay it back.

Beck outright lies on his radio show though saying that Hayworth is two faced for calling for fiscal responsibility, but then giving an interview to a government grant company. I will side with Hayworth that he did not know the company would turn his interview into a "free money to live large like a rap star" show. All the while Beck ignored the fact that John McCain voted for the massive bailout of $700 billion a year and a half ago.

Beck says that he would rather have John "$700 Billion Bailout Waste" McCain than Hayworth, who was simply informing people about government grants for their business. The fact is that government grants aren't going away. They will be there. Hayworth was pointing out the positive side of grants, to start your own business and make something of yourself in this country. He wasn't calling for you to fraudulently get grants and go on a world tour.

My question is, why is Glenn Beck shilling for McCain? Why is it that time and time again Beck seems to try his damnedest to destroy any candidate who would crack down on illegal immigration? Why is he avoiding the issue on his show and instead focusing on the same old tired "socialism creep" he has been covering for a year and a half since he read Jonah Goldberg's book Liberal Fascism?

Yes, almost everything that Beck has been covering on the progressives, including his "hate" for Woodrow Wilson and his attacks on Teddy Roosevelt come straight from that book. You could draw a timeline on it - maybe even on a chalkboard. He was pushing the book just prior to him launching into his TV campaign against progressivism. Beck will gladly continue to portray himself as being the genius who "discovered it" and is pointing it out by not mentioning much that all his ideas are someone else's. Genius through omission.

You see things like that bother me. Taking someone else's ideas and pretending they're all your own is disingenuous and it makes me question Beck's other actions and motives. Like I said in the beginning, he presents some good information. Usually once every 2 months you actually get some real good new information. The rest of it is repetitious filler of the same stuff over and over and over, with of course no time for illegal immigration or any solutions he would present to solve the issue.

I'm guessing we wouldn't like the answer to our question of what Beck's solution would be to illegal immigration, because I'm also guessing the answer would be amnesty.

"Question with boldness..." even the current TV God.

You can leave your "You're just a liberal shill for the Obama Administration by questioning anything Beck says" comments below.

A few things that I noticed about your comments. First let me tell you where I come from. I have listened to Beck since he went syndicated in 2001. I believe him to be a sincere, honest, everyman because of the experience I have had with him. I saw his progression to TV and his emotions seem to be genuine to me.
Now, just because Rupert Murdoch says "pathway to citizenship" doesn't, to me, mean Amnesty. Is not legal immigration a "pathway to citizenship?" I don't believe we should jump to "amnesty" when we hear "pathway to citizenship". Its kind of a catch all phrase,like your comment about bloggers (which I think Glenn is talking about his detractors, not Michelle Malkin) and lumping them all together. You have to look at the context. I am a blogger and know that Glenn is not talking about me. The progressives have a history of twisting words and "pathway..etc" is one of them.
Secondly, I LOATHE John McCain. Every time he is on TV, he nauseates me. I think because McCain is in a hot seat for his seat, he asks to be on Fox. I don't know if Haworthe has or not. If someone with clout of any kind will get on major networks. McCain is trying to put his face on Fox so the people will see him more. I do not believe that the viewers of Fox like him much either. McCain now is acting Conservative to win his seat.
Third, the Haworthe commercial was unfortunate for JD. But I believe it was A LONG TIME AGO, so I believe this is a smear campaign by McCain/Progressives. I think Haworthe is better than McCain. I see where Beck comes from, not that I think its a career killer for Haworthe, but its a tougher hill to climb.
Now, The Medina interview...I heard it in its entirety. There was no evidence of a poor phone connection, she responded quickly and accurately for the other questions and the ONE question that she gets hammered for had a bad connection? Very suspect. She paused WAY To long and did not come out and completely deny being a Truther. Now truthers are on both sides of the spectrum. So you can be a patriot and believe 9/11 was a set up (ala ALex Jones) or you can be a communist and believe it (ala Van Jones....hmm Alex JONES....Van JONES? Just kidding). To convince Glenn and me that she was not a truther, she should have VEHEMENTLY denied it when she had to time. She should have IMMEDIATLY denied it and said there was a bad phone connection. Being a truther is a whacko stance, in the eyes of well me and most of the American people. It just is.
So I believe it be a leap to go from "pathway to citizenship" to Fox is pro amnesty. However, trust but verify. We will see what happens.
And I am most certainly an Anti-Obama person, but I will not attack you with arbitrary arguments saying you are a commie.
God Bless

I used to think of myself as a "liberal" but really don't know what I "am" anymore. I voted for Obama reluctantly (I was for John Edwards, but the media destroyed him) and wish I hadn't, but McCain-Palin was pretty rough as far as I was concerned. From Obama's "health care" to his handling of the Deepwater Horizon oil disaster, he is abominable. I didn't really think about the illegal immigrant problem until recently. I can see how it is destroying the American people and how it benefits the rich and powerful. Unfortunately, Rupert's "pathway to citizenship" sure sounds like Orwellian language for amnesty. That's how they sneak their agendas through. If anything good could come of all this, if the right and left could come together and fight the real enemy - those who would keep us in bondage and fighting amongst ourselves, maybe the world could change for the better. I don't listen to Glenn Beck,but from what you write I would have to say, yeah, Fox News is for amnesty and so is Glenn Beck. Does anyone really think Rupert Murdoch would pay someone who disagrees with him?? It will be interesting to see how they handle all this, will they be able to fool so many of the American people as usual?? Let's hope not. Thank you for being here - your website is great.

It would be a sad day indeed if the AZ voters let this very old JD ad sway them toward the traitor named McCain. McCain does not need smear ads because his own actions speak louder than his new words. Unfortunately, this is what has become of our political system - smearing and lies instead of letting the truth rise to the top. AZ voters need to reject the use of BECK to smear JD Hayworth and remember that McSTAIN has done nothing for Arizona EVER.

Great minds think alike or you and I have the ability to read each other's minds. Every single word written mirrors my thoughts since the day Glenn Beck destroyed Medina's campaign.

I have watched/listened to Beck since he first aired in PHL and considered myself an avid fan. Suffice it to say that for at least one hour following the Medina interview my instincts led me to believe that something was very, very troubling about what transpired. I knew nothing to very little about Medina; therefore, the sense of dread I felt had nothing to do with her. In days I realized what troubled me so much was the utter and total disappointment in a man that I had previously held in such high regard.

Last week when Beck pulled an encore presentation, inserting J.D. Hayworth in Medina"s place, I knew, without doubt, that Beck is not all he appears to be. Followed within days with the Rupert Murdoch pro-immigration announcement, Beck's refusal to aggressively address illegal aliens or demonstrate support for Gov Jan Brewer convinces me that it is Beck's audience that should follow Beck's mandate: i.e., question everything....including him.

Illegal aliens are true modern day "slaves" in that they are being used by the upper classes and businesses as a source for circumventing the free market and getting almost free labor compared with hiring U.S. citizens at fair wages. For example, if no one wants to butcher chickens for min. wage for a living then the pay should rise until people fill the jobs. With illegals that will never happen.

The fact that the illegals aren't captive slaves held against their will is the only facet that is diff from traditional "old timey" slaves.

But this form of modern day slavery is even better cause instead of the slave holders handling the logistics and paying the upkeep it is the tax payers paying it in their taxes. The profiteers in this system get low wages and labor at will and the tax payers pay all their benefits in the form of social services, etc.

Of course anyone who runs a business or hires day labor, sub contractors or domestic help will do anything they can to keep the current system going including using false pretenses to dupe well meaning civil rights activists and stupid protesters into supporting their scam. The dupes think its all about human rights when its all about circumventing the free market economics via an artificially low wage earning transient workforce subsidized by tax payers.

Wake up people and see what is happening in front of you.

As for Glenn Beck, as he makes more money he becomes what he was once against himself - he does not need to be forced by Rupert into supporting it. That is how to be successful - profit from anything and everything. Truth will never get in the way of that.

Posted by: vulcan420 on June 30, 2010 12:08 AM

Sorry digger but you obviously do not see what so clearly others, including GB do. Illegals are the modern day equivalent of slaves as experienced by those profiting off them.

I agree with a previous comment that said the whole illegal immigration issue is all about artificially cheap, transient labor and that's why nothing ever gets done about it, over decades, and nothing ever will (until their wages equal what the average American hourly worker makes including benefits).

Its all about money in someone's pockets. Businesses and wealthy will never give up their scam of subsidized "slave" labor and politicians will not give up that plus their needy constituency who will trade votes for social services without one hell of a fight.

I do not expect to see it end in my lifetime because its good for business, its good for the wealthy and its good for politicians. In fact, everyone wins except low wage earning Americans being forced into even lower wages.

I used to listen and watch Beck religiously until the Medina interview. I didn't know who she was or anything about her but Beck's behavior was so juvenile and arrogant that I was immediately turned off. Then his two lap dog partners joined in with him.
I haven't watched his television show since and basically keep up with him on his radio show. Now this on Hayworth. Maybe he's back on the bottle, or he needs to go on a good crying jag to fix what ails him. Maybe he hasn't sold enough of his latest book??
Seriously though, his recent actions in these instances show a lack of professionalism. It's unfortunate with the media as it is that we have these issues with someone we perceive to be on "our" side. There are several good alternatives if you don't want to listen to Beck so he shouldn't feel too omnipotent.

What many viewers don't seem to get is Glenn is a showman and an entertainer - he doesn't actually believe in much of what he says - it's a ratings show to draw in viewers. If you were to sit around the table with him with his family on Thanksgiving, he doesn't talk that way in a familial situation. It's the same comedic schtik one gets on Jon Stewart or the Colbert Report. It's not real TV news reporting and commentators with guests - it's just entertainment! His skit was actually a carbon copy of a skit 20 years ago on a comedy channel. People who take him seriously take life too seriously. Now, it is possible that at some time in the future he might actually begin to believe his own hype, but he's too much of a trikster to allow me to believe he might. You can take for gospel if Rupert actually believed Glenn was dissing Rupert's beliefs and values on a daily basis without it being tongue in cheek, he would have canned him long before now.

The way Murdoch is acting, perhaps even HE is an illegal alien and wants the law changed before he is caught.

Whether he is or not, I think rewarding criminal behavior is WRONG. It will come back to haunt you and probably even more severe than we could imagine.

What motivates people like that is something I'll never know; why turn this country upside down and allow millions of unknown quality characters loose on the rest of us.

Well when it happens I hope those criminals will first bite those hands that helped them before they get to ours.

Well I wouldn't go that far. Besides how would you know what he discusses around the family table? I agree that many decisions he makes are for ratings, but to assert that he doesn't believe any of it is a bit disingenuous.

And even if your assertion is true, if what is presented is fact based information, what does it matter?

I'm more pointing out his lack of firm stances on things, particularly immigration, that he puts forth passionately. Omission is just as guilty as outright admission, and that is what I see with Beck.

Posted by: Digger on July 2, 2010 05:32 PM

Good article. We've been growing increasingly suspicious of FOX News, O'Reilly and Breitbart in recent months. Anybody who would outright DECLARE "the birthers" as "nuts"--when there is ABSOLUTELY NO PROOF THAT MR. O. IS ELIGIBLE TO BE IN THE WHITE HOUSE--has to be suspect. And Breitbart's seemed a little suspect ever since he started acted "dodgy" when grilled about the O'Keefe/Hannah thing. Lately Breitbart seems to be coming down with a "B-I-G" case of ego inflation, which does not bode well for those of us who were trusting him to watch out for OUR interests. Ego inflation is dangerous: Just look what it's doing from the Oval Office!

Just lately? Haha. I think Andrew was born with a case of ego inflation.

Not that I don't appreciate the information he procures, but we're supposedly in this together...

If Glen hates the progressives so much, then why is he pushing McCain who is a progressive. Fox is just as bad as the other media.

Posted by: Richard on July 12, 2010 09:10 PM

I'm a regular Glenn Beck listener/viewer, and I have heard Glenn say many times directly and very clearly that he is NOT for amnesty, and is NOT an advocate of John McCain, both on the radio and on television. And it was done even under the roof of Rupert Murdoch, who clearly supports Glenn's right to express opinion, even if it conflicts with his own. Glenn's show wouldn't have lasted half the time it has if the man writing his paycheck wasn't okay with that. So why bother to speculate when Glenn has been very clear about his stance? I believe if you called him out on these issues right now, he would answer definitively and promptly without hesitation. Maybe someone should call him and ask him.

I'm convinced that Glenn Beck truly believes the things he says. Glenn speaks his mind. He puts on a show for both political commentary AND entertainment, but he does not do it at the expense of his soul or integrity. Glenn is passionate about sharing the truth as he understands and sees it, and though sometimes he is a bit dramatic or he and his co-hosts get a little carried away with their silliness and forget their professionalism from time to time (it's part of the entertainment), you can hear the sincerity in his voice and see it in his eyes when he speaks seriously about something he is clearly passionate about.

I observe his joking and ranting (mainly on the radio) as not a strategic manipulation of his audience as some speculate, but mostly just as non-scripted conversation that is more or less the same discussion I hear regularly among everyday people. He is also very good at presenting his shows in a very entertaining manner-he's not just another political talking head-he is relate-able and as such is much more interesting to watch/listen to than many others. I believe he is truly just a regular guy and happened to find himself in this position because he speaks what most other Americans are thinking. He's gained notoriety and has a much larger audience than he's ever had because many more are actually paying attention now. And Glenn is making a lot more sense than most other media sources these days.

With that said, I don't always agree with everything Glenn says, but we agree on many things- substantially more than many other outspoken commentators.

Now I'm sure I'll get criticized for being a brainwashed Glenn Beck zombie after some of you read this, but I know who I am and what I believe now, thanks in part to Glenn. Now that my blinders are off and I'm seeing the real world for the first time, I have a much clearer perspective and better understand my role as an American.
