Mornings on the Mall: Media May Drive The Next Few Days of Events

WMAL’s Mornings on the Mall co-hosts Mary Walter and Vince Coglianese discussed how perception and the media could drive events in the coming days in both the Washington D.C. area and nationally. Joining them was The Washington Examiner’s Chief Political Correspondent Byron York.

“I can tell you what my sources inside the White House would like President Trump to do during his last  nine days in office,” York said, “They want him to travel around and highlight his accomplishments as President. We know he is going to go to Texas to talk about his successes on immigration, but beyond that, we don’t know what he is going to do.”

Even if President Trump does engage in a whirlwind tour highlighting his accomplishments, York says media focus will likely be elsewhere.

“Everybody is going to be focused on the possible impeachment,” York said.  “If it happens, it would have to be the fastest impeachment in history. The new Senate does not get sworn in until January 19th and Joe Biden’s inauguration is on the 20th. Is it worth it to remove him with 24 hours left?”

York also brings up the issue of a post-presidential impeachment though the legality of that action has not been decided. Coglianese then asked York if all Democrats support impeachment.

“That’s an interesting question,” York said. “On the one hand, you have some Democrats who have wanted Trump out of office since day one. Then there are some who want the (media) focus to be on the Joe Biden agenda and his first 100 days in office.”

Walter asked if Congress would consider a censure of President Trump.

 “They could also censure the President,” York said. “It’s perfectly reasonable and I think it would have support from both Democrats and Republicans, but some don’t think it goes far enough.”

The interview with York ends with him addressing the issue of alleged censorship of conservative opinions on social media sites and limiting access to others, like Parler.

“The Democrats are accusing President Trump of dividing the country, but isn’t “Big Tech” doing the same thing? Coglianese asks. “I mean, almost 75 million people voted for Trump.”

“This is another tough situation for the Democrats,” York said. “Yes, they see it as a good thing because it washes away anything associated with Donald Trump. But privately, they are worried that if they support this (censorship) that one day it could turn around on them. It will be interesting to see how it plays out.”

Longtime Detroit reporter Kevin Dietz has been named full-time host at NewsTalk 760 WJR, he revealed on Twitter. Dietz has been hosting WJR Late Mornings since Frank Beckmann retired six months ago. 

“I took a pretty cool new job! Working 9-noon Monday -Friday on WJR 760,” he said. “I remember JP McCarthy as a kid on this station! I am blessed.”

The Emmy award-winning investigative reporter spent nearly 30-years at Detroit NBC affiliate WDIV before he was fired in 2019 for making an alleged racial comment about another reporter.

“The station has a zero-tolerance policy on racially insensitive comments, and they determined, despite the intent and context of my statement, that it violated the policy,” he said at the time.

Dietz garnered 17 Emmy awards in 26 years at WDIV. He began his career in Traverse City, Michigan in 1988.

WJR has not revealed if Dietz will continue hosting the show alone or if a co-host will be brought in.
