Bernie & Sid Reflect Back on Pearl Harbor Day

“Bernie & Sid played portions of FDR’s ‘Infamy Address’ while reflecting on Pearl Harbor Day.”

On the 79th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Bernie McGuirk and Sid Rosenberg of Bernie & Sid in the Morning on 77 WABC in New York, took to the air to share their thoughts on Pearl Harbor Day.

They began the segment by playing portions of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s famous “Day That Will Live in Infamy” address, which he delivered to the nation on December 8, 1941, the day after Pearl Harbor was attacked.

“That was probably the highpoint of his presidency,” Rosenberg said when the clip finished playing. “FDR made some great speeches, the “Nothing to Fear but Fear Itself” and this one. A lot of people think both were the same speech, but one was actually in reference to the Great Depression and the other Pearl Harbor. After that however, things kind of went downhill for FDR. He really didn’t do much after that.”

Hearing the “Infamy” speech reminded McGuirk of another famous speech made after tragic events in American history.

“It is very similar to George W. Bush’s speech on top of the twisted rubble of the World Trade Center after September 11th,” McGuirk said. “When he said, ‘I can hear you. The whole world can hear you and soon enough, the people who knocked these buildings down will hear from all of us.’ That was his moment that will stay with us just like FDR after Pearl Harbor. W’s approval rating was close to 97 percent at that point. Like you said with Roosevelt though, it was downhill from that point. He bungled the Iraq War. I will give him somewhat of a pass because he was kind of led by the nose into the whole thing. He was acting on bad information from Donald Rumsfeld and others, but as a President, you have to stand up and make better decisions at a time like that.”

Rosenberg then shifted the focus back to Pearl Harbor Day by relaying some of his personal experiences of visiting Pearl Harbor and the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial to listeners.

“If you get a chance you really should go,” he said. “It’s an amazing and sobering experience. There is a place where you can step out on the memorial, look down and see bubbles are still coming up in the water. That’s from the oil that’s still leaking after 79 years and the bodies of the people who died onboard are still entombed on the ship. It really makes you stop and think about what happened 79 years ago today.”

SiriusXM radio host Howard Stern told “Morning Joe’s” Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist in an extensive interview that MSNBC is the network for him regarding cable news consumption. 

Stern stated that he’s a major fan of “Morning Joe” and went the extra mile to say that he and co-host Joe Scarborough share the same political idealogy.

“I watch you guys every morning,” Stern said (h/t Mediaite). “I really enjoy the show. Oddly, I agree politically with almost everything Joe says. I don’t think there’s much difference there.”

The radio host thanked MSNBC for providing him with what he loves: 24/7 news. Additionally, Stern offered a shoutout to network host Symone Sanders and stated he’s no fan of Dateline repeats.

“By the way, I want to give a shoutout to MSNBC,” Stern added. “Thank God you don’t play the old Datelines anymore on the weekends. I like news. I watch this channel exclusively for news. I tune out on the weekend. 

“It’s like all news stuff. I’m watching old Datelines. I like when you guys are onI like news 24/7, and now I find I’m getting it. I get Symone on the weekend. Big fan of hers. Symone coming on strong. What can I tell you? I know the whole lineup.”

Charges against John DePetro have been dismissed as the radio host faced a trespassing charge related to an incident over the summer during a Monday court hearing.

DePetro was arrested in mid-August outside a home on Staples Avenue in Warwick.

Police searched the house several months earlier as part of an investigation into the disappearance of Charlotte Lester, who has been missing for six months.

“I respect our justice system and respect law enforcement, specifically the Warwick PD,” DePetro said on Twitter. “The search for Charlotte Lester continues as I resume efforts searching for answers into her disappearance and holding Mark Perkins accountable for his actions against myself and Ladybug.”

The man who lives there, Mark Perkins, was also arrested the following day after he allegedly charged at DePetro with a lawnmower while DePetro was live-streaming. 

Unlike DePetro, who had his charges dismissed, Perkins still faces an assault charge, according to court records.
