Glenn Beck unloaded on the media in a fiery radio segment Wednesday, blasting the press for the way it covered recent remarks made by Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
In video posted online this week, Farrakhan called for black Americans to “rise up” and “kill those who kill us” if the federal government fails to “intercede in our affairs.” The Nation of Islam leader added, "Stalk them and kill them and let them feel the pain of death that we are feeling."
Beck played the audio Wednesday — and then unloaded on the press.
"Where is the media?!" he shouted into the microphone. "When you took us on day after day after day after day saying we were inciting violence — where the hell are you?!"
"He is calling for the execution of Americans! Where are you?! You are nowhere! Why? Because it is about Islam! And you are too much of a wuss to say the truth!" he continued. "YOU COWER IN FEAR!"

Beck and his co-host noted how the media reacted when Sara Palin's PAC put crosshairs over political races it was targeting.
"Do you remember how much I had to up my security? Because the media was saying I was threatening people? And that I was calling for violence? And how much violence was inflicted on us and threatened on us and our family? Because the media wanted to stop violence! Nothing on Louis Farrakhan! Nothing!" Beck said.
"He is calling, not couching it, he is openly calling for the slaughter of Americans!" he added.
"I just can't take it! I just can't take the hypocrisy! You're all about the freakin lion in Zimbabwe and you don't care about the abortion mills. I can't take it anymore," he continued. "I can't take it. I can't take it. I am not sitting down anymore."
