Facebook Demonetized 60 Videos from Glenn Beck
Beck said that 60 videos on his professional Facebook account were inexplicably demonetized during his nationally syndicated show on Tuesday.
Glenn Beck said that 60 videos on his professional Facebook account were inexplicably demonetized. During his nationally syndicated show Tuesday, Beck said his social media team made the discovery last month.
“Some of them were posted as far back as February,” said Beck. “It’s important to understand the difference between being demonetized and a violation.”
According to Facebook a violation of community standards can occur when nudity or other sexually suggestive content is posted. Hate speech, credible threats, or direct attacks on an individual or group. Content that contains self-harm or excessive violence. Fake or impostor profiles. Spam.
“These videos are just demonetized because they are too sensitive for advertisers,” said Beck. “The way this works is very telling. Facebook allows advertisers to vaguely choose what kind of videos they want to associate themselves with.”
Beck added that some content is always demonetized no matter what the advertiser wants.
“This category includes misinformation. That’s determined by a list of independent third-party fact-checkers who are not all that independent and not all that fact checky.”
Beck said his team dug through the videos to find out what was demonetized.
“My podcast with Vivek [Ramaswamy] about ESG, my podcast with James Lindsay exposing CRT, one from March titled “Biden’s New World Order,” which I remember was his quote,” Beck said.
Beck said his team fought to get many of the de-platformed videos remonetized.
“I find it interesting that this occurred the same month that the FBI raided Mar-a-Lago and warned everybody about increased domestic violence extremism,” he added.

Mark Simone: Meet The Press Won’t Change After Chuck Todd Leaves
“It’ll be the same fake news, fake nonsense.”
Meet The Press host Chuck Todd announced he will exit the NBC News Sunday political affairs program later this year Sunday, and 710 WOR host Mark Simone celebrated the development.
“He ‘decided to leave’. This is just after they canned him. Apparently, they fired Chuck Todd. Good for them,” The Mark Simone Show host said Monday. “He made up the excuse that he wants to spend more time with his family. Have you seen his family? No one wants to spend more time with him. He doesn’t want to work too much and it’s important to be at home more with his kids. His are like 38.
“Whenever somebody gets fired, they’ve got all these excuses. ‘They wanted to go in a different direction’. Yeah, up. He’s taken the ratings down. He set all-time records for low ratings on Meet The Press.”
Simone then said Todd is getting the same treatment as another former network anchor that was pushed aside.
“Sometime when they fire someone, you’ll get a fake title. You know, ‘news ambassador’ or ‘election ambassador’. Walter Cronkite was great, he was the greatest anchor of all time, but they couldn’t just fire him, so they made up some fake title for him. They gave him an office and a desk, and a secretary. And once on election night, they’d let him come on for five minutes with Dan Rather, but they put him out to pasture. So that dirty, slimy, fake news weasel Chuck Todd is out.”
Meet The Press has long been viewed as the most consequential Sunday political affairs program, gaining popularity and notoriety under former moderator Tim Russert. However, Simone believes the addition of Kristen Welker, who will replace Todd and become just the second woman to anchor the show, won’t change under her direction.
“We’ll see how she does. I’m sure nothing will change. It’ll be the same fake news, fake nonsense.”
Ben Shapiro: ‘What is a Woman’ Most Watched Doc in History
“This documentary has more views than Anderson Cooper’s show all week, combined on CNN.”
On the latest episode of The Ben Shapiro Show, Shapiro analyzes and reacts to the controversy surrounding Matt Walsh’s documentary What is a Woman airing on Twitter.
The buzz surrounding Twitter employees restricting the documentary, followed by CEO Elon Musk promoting the film led to record-breaking viewers, creating the coveted Streisand effect, which Musk optimistically noted may happen in the wake of the controversy.
“Elon Musk, to his great credit, decided to take off the clamps and now the stats on how many people have seen What is Women are absolutely astounding,” Shapiro said. “The number of video impressions on What is Woman, the tweet that we put out there at Elon Musk and he tweeted himself, and then pinned at the top of his account, 171 million impressions which means, in the very least, tens and tens of millions of people have seen the actual documentary making it by any metric perhaps the most watched documentary in the history of humanity.”
Shapiro then gave an example of the scale at which What is a Woman has been viewed.
“For example, this documentary has more views than Anderson Cooper’s show all week, combined on CNN. And the 2023 Oscars, and Joe Biden’s 2023 State of the Union address, and Lizzo‘s most recent music video special, which is four months old, and over the course of like 48 hours 72 hours over the weekend. More viewers in the Game of Thrones finale.”
His monologue goes on to explain the hunger for truth Americans are feeling in our current media landscape. Shapiro analyzes the outsized reaction to the documentary, pointing out how censorship only makes people more adamant about honesty.
“These are huge numbers because people want to engage with the truth. They are sick of being told lies, and these are bigger numbers than the numbers on massive documentaries like Making a Murderer from Netflix, which had over 19 million views over the course of five weeks.”

Rachel Maddow Launching ‘Deja News’ Podcast
MSNBC host Rachel Maddow is slated to debut her latest podcast venture next week.
Maddow will pair with her longtime producer Isaac-Davy Aronson for Rachel Maddow Presents: Deja News. The six-part series will look to highlight similarities between current and historical events.
“More often than you think, we are not the first generation of people to confront the situations we are facing today,” Maddow said during the podcast’s trailer.
According to the podcast description, Maddow and Aaronson will “seek a deeper understanding of a story in today’s headlines by asking: Has anything like this ever happened before? Would knowing that help us grapple with what’s happening now… and what might happen next?”
It is not Maddow’s first foray into the podcast space. She recently was awarded the 2023 Hillman Prize Award for Broadcast Journalism, the first time a podcast was bestowed with the honor, for Rachel Maddow Presents: Ultra. She has also previously worked on a podcast series entitled Rachel Maddow Presents: Bag Man.
