"Truth has no agenda” is a phrase often used by conservative radio and television host Glenn Beck; Beck’s website began selling T-shirts with the phrase in February 2011. The saying has not been trademarked.
The phrase “truth has no agenda” has been cited in print since at least 1994.

I also find that truth generally lies somewhere in the middle of extreme points of view, because, unlike the proponents of polarized positions, “truth” has no agenda—it simply is.

We have our own agenda. But truth has no agenda but itself. One way or another there is Truth.

There has to be a reason for ocean going kook positions. There just has to be. The truth has no agenda, grade A and cast iron BS most certainly does.

The truth has no agenda

The slogan “The truth has no agenda” has been used a lot by Glenn over the past few months. Glenn explained why he has been using the phrase on radio this morning.
“This is the problem with the country. We don’t understand anymore. The truth has no agenda. It doesn’t have an agenda. It’s just the truth,” Glenn said.

TheDC Exclusive: Conservatives hit Beck for taking content without attribution

In February of this year, Beck announced on the radio that he had created a new motto for his website, The Blaze. “This is the slogan that I wrote for The Blaze,” Beck said. “We’ve put it up everywhere here and we’ve written it out for The Blaze. And it is: ‘The truth has no agenda.’”
But in fact, this was not the truth. Beck did not write any such slogan for The Blaze. According to GoDaddy.com website domain name registration records, a man named Michael Opelka bought the domain “truthhasnoagenda.com” in July 2009. Beck has since hired Opelka to work for The Blaze. Shortly thereafter, Beck began selling “The Truth Has No Agenda” merchandise.
