A media firm that employs proper wing talk-radio hosts, together with 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 despatched the inner memo to staff on Wednesday, in response to Inside Music Media.
The Atlanta-based firm owns 416 radio stations all through the nation, many utilizing a talk-radio format with native and nationwide right-wing personalities.
“We have to assist induce nationwide calm NOW,” Cumulus’s govt vp of content material Brian Philips wrote within the memo. The corporate “is not going to tolerate any suggestion that the election has not ended. The election has been resolved and there aren’t any alternate acceptable ‘paths.’”
WNU Editor: My intestine tells me that Cumulus Media has been warned by the powers that be in Washington and by surrogates from the incoming Biden administration that if this isn’t stopped instantly, they are going to overview the FCC guidelines that allows them to function on the radio waves.
Cumulus Media has already gotten rid of Dr. Michael Savage, so their warnings of firing their hosts needs to be handled as very actual. Rush Limbaugh is on some Cumulus Media stations. Will he now curtail his speech? The repercussions over this demand to not discuss in regards to the election might be far reaching.
