Free Speech Crackdown Extended to Talk Radio

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


The disastrous occurrence at the Capitol on January 6 was made possible because people no longer trust the integrity of our elections, or of the liberal-dominated system in general. More censorship will not help:

Cumulus Media, which employs some of the most popular right-leaning talk-radio hosts in the United States, has told its on-air personalities to stop suggesting that the election was stolen from President Donald Trump – or else face termination. …

“We need to help induce national calm NOW,” Brian Philips, executive vice president of content for Cumulus, wrote in an internal memo, which was first reported by Inside Music Media. Cumulus and its program syndication arm, Westwood One, “will not tolerate any suggestion that the election has not ended. The election has been resolved and there are no alternate acceptable ‘paths.’ ”

The memo adds: “If you transgress this policy, you can expect to separate from the company immediately.”

Cumulus owns 416 radio stations, many based on the conservative-dominated talk format. Hosts include heavy hitters Mark Levin, Ben Shapiro, and Dan Bongino.

Michael Harrison publishes Talkers magazine…

Asked how hosts who have repeatedly promoted Trump’s claims of fraud can now credibly flip to acceptance, Harrison said: “I would hope they put their personal feelings aside and come clean with their listeners.”

“Come clean” means stick to the official narrative. What they actually believe is irrelevant in the sort of country this is turning into.

Nothing fans the flames of paranoia like heavy-handed censorship. Unless the establishment is run by idiots, the objective is not to “induce national calm.” The solution to wrong information is right information. Gags are for suppressing wrongthink and marginalizing alternative points of view. Marginalization does not result in calm; it results in radicalization.

On a tip from Stormfax.
