Portland Oregon radio host Lars Larson did not hold back when criticizing Biden administration press secretary Jen Psaki for breaking the sacrosanct rule of journalism by asking media members to submit questions in writing, on Thursday’s edition of The Lars Larson Show on KXL.

“When I became a journalist 46 years ago, one of the first rules you learn is that legitimate journalists never submit questions beforehand,” Larson said. “It’s not written down anywhere, but it is understood. You can give them a general topic, like taxes you would like to talk about, but never specific questions. To ask legitimate journalists to do it is just offensive to me. If you give questions beforehand, it gives the person you are interviewing editorial control over your work. They may answer some questions but not others. It limits your reporting.”

Larson’s guest Rick Manning, who is the president of American’s for Limited Government agrees.

“The White House Press Corps is rolling over on this because they want access to the White House,” Manning said. “Every journalist is looking for a scoop and to get a scoop you need access. One of the main terms of access is to give us (the White House) your questions early so we don’t look stupid. They have basically said if you are not going to play by our rules, you are not getting your questions answered.”

Larson says that journalists who cave into the Biden Administration’s demands are setting themselves up for future restrictions.

“It’s like making your first payment to an extortionist,” Larson said. “You may think you are only paying them one time, but once you make that first payment, they know they’ve got you on the hook forever… You have just sold your soul.”

Manning claims the reason most of the press agreed to these restrictions stem from their dislike of former President Donald Trump.

“The media raised selling Democratic talking points to an art form,” he said. “No matter how many facts they were presented with, they called them all lies because it did not fit the narrative they were trying to sell. Honestly, 90 percent of the people (in the White House Press Corps) are not real journalists. They are political activists and they sold out long ago.”

Larson implies that the very future of American democracy is at stake if this policy remains in place.

“Our Founding Fathers said that the Republic needs an informed electorate to survive,” Larson said. “Now we have a press corps that just goes along with the President’s program. They are not informing, nor are they holding him accountable to do his job and uphold the Constitution.”

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.
