Talk-Radio Owner Threatens to Fire Hosts Who Dispute Election Results
National Review ^ | January 11, 2021 | Zachary Evans

A media company that employs right wing talk-radio hosts, including Mark Levin, Dan Bongino, and Ben Shapiro, circulated a memo after the pro-Trump riots on Capitol Hill telling hosts to dial down allegations of election fraud, or else face termination.

Cumulus Media sent the internal memo to employees on Wednesday, according to Inside Music Media. The Atlanta-based company owns 416 radio stations throughout the country, many using a talk-radio format with local and national right-wing personalities.

“We need to help induce national calm NOW,” Cumulus’s executive vice president of content Brian Philips wrote in the memo. The company “will not tolerate any suggestion that the election has not ended. The election has been resolved and there are no alternate acceptable ‘paths.’”

Philips added, “If you transgress this policy, you can expect to separate from the company immediately.”

Will all due respect to Sidney Powell, the only Kraken I see released is the left (Big Tech, media, Democrats, Deep State) conducting a full assault on Trump and his supporters post-Capitol.

The police officer wasn’t killed “while confronting” protesters.

And where is a picture of the guy who threw the fire extinguisher? Oh, that’s right, the FBI is investigating. So the investigation will be a clown show.

No. They can’t. This is why Glenn Beck created his own media organization. He saw the writing on the wall.

Maybe we need a National Dialogue on Impeaching Kamala Harris for “inciting riots” if she is sworn in

“They’re not going to stop. They’re not going to stop,” she told him. “This is a movement, I’m telling you. They’re not gonna stop. And everyone beware because they’re not gonna stop. They’re not gonna stop before Election Day and they’re not going to stop after Election Day. And everyone should take note of that. They’re not gonna let up and they should not.”

We always knew that the freedom of speech was limited, and intended ended to curb the government’s crushing of it.

In business it has always been at the mercy of the boss, as long as the boss was one of the “in crowd”.

Just wait until the IRS starts auditing all sched C businesses in certain zip codes.

Just you wait... the FCC will push the same agenda. You don’t obey, they’ll revoke their licenses and then they’ll come after Ham Radio operators.
