Vice News Names New Editor-In-Chief

The post had been vacant since 2019

Vice News has new leadership as the media outlet announced that Michael Learmonth
would take over the editor-in-chief role and begin his position effectively while reporting
to Katie Drummond, senior vice president of global news.

“In my year working with him, I’ve been awed by both the neverending energy Michael
brings to each day — many of them punishing in recent months — and his vision for
both what Vice News should be now and what it has the potential to become. I can’t wait
to see where he takes it,” Drummond said.

Before taking the position, Learmonth was news director in charge of the United States
coverage. Now Learmonth’s role will expand as he will not only oversee what goes on in
the U.S. but coverage of Canada and Latin America.

Over the last two years, Vice News had the editor-in-chief role vacant after the
departure of Ryan McCarthy in 2019.

The news of Learmonth’s appointment comes off the heels of Vice Media promoting Liz
Landers to chief political correspondent and tasking her to lead on-air political coverage
for its TV newsmagazine “Vice News Tonight.”

Keith Olbermann: NewsNation is ‘Nick At Nite’ for Ex-Cable News Hosts

NewsNation “since you and billions of others haven’t seen it”, as Olbermann said, “is a kind of Nick At Nite for ex-cable news hosts.”

NewsNation has taken shots recently for their hiring of Chris Cuomo and their reported courtship of Bill O’Reilly, and Keith Olbermann took the latest swing at the network on his podcast Wednesday.

Olbermann read part of the report linking O’Reilly to the fledgling network as a possible contributor and joked about its low viewership.

NewsNation “since you and billions of others haven’t seen it”, as Olbermann said, “is a kind of Nick At Nite for ex-cable news hosts. Chris Cuomo just went there, joining Dan Abrams.”

The Countdown host then joked that O’Reilly joining the organization would be a sort of best case scenario for his podcast.

“‘Billo’ back on tv on a network nobody watches but still spewing out content for The Worst Persons in the World? I am in favor of this!”, Olbermann said, insinuating that O’Reilly would continue to stay in the running for the segment while few heard his rhetoric.

Outkick’s Tomi Lahren recently went one-on-one with an Instagram influencer who claims that she was canceled for her conservative views. 

Amanda Ensing told Lahren that she struck a deal with makeup brand Sephora but was canceled when they realized that she was a vocal conservative. 

Ensign said that Sephora got mad when she tweeted about the Jan. 6 riots. The tweet in question was posted on the same day that unrest was happening at the Capitol. 

“The left: I hate it here. America is embarrassing. Only we can riot & loot. Defund the police. Just do what the government tells you & don’t ask questions,” the tweet read. “The right: Let’s fight for freedom. We love the USA. Defend the Constitution. We support our Military & Law enforcement.”

Ensing told Lahren that she had previously been very quiet when it came to politics, but she became fed up watching and listening to pundits on the other side speak their minds. 

“I’ve seen the left in the industry push all of these lies, and propaganda and they hate America,” Ensing said. “So, when you call them out based on their hate for America and their words and their actions, they get mad about it, they’re like little toddlers.” 

Lahren told Ensing that most major corporations in America participated in some form of pandering that resulted in others being canceled who didn’t agree with them. 

“Even in 2020, any influencer that spoke out that rioting and burning was not okay, you were canceled, you were shut down, it was justified like it was reparations,” Ensing said. 

Lahren added that she’s had conservations with well-known liberals like Trevor Noah who did not want to be seen with her in public because of her conservative views. 

“The same thing with Charlamagne Tha God, you can’t even be friends with people anymore if the cancel culture mob goes after one person. People are so quick to throw you out and throw you under the bus,” added Lahren.

Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk advises students to think twice before college during his appearance on Saturday’s broadcast of “One Nation” with Brian Kilmeade on Fox News.

Kirk, who also hosts a nationally syndicated radio program, said he opted not to go to college after having the opportunity to attend both Baylor University and United States Military Academy West Point. 

“Just to be clear, the vast majority of people going to college should not go,” said Kirk. “Forty percent of kids who enroll in college dropout; they don’t graduate at all. There’s, of course, a role for some people to go to college that requires some technical proficiency.” 

Kirk released a new book last week called The College Scam. According to Amazon, Kirk puts the college industry on trial with a ten-count indictment of why academia has lost all credibility. 

He claims universities across the country have turned the “entire value system proposition on its head.”

“Whether it be the $200,000 worth of costs that occurs for four years or the bad ideas and the woke ideologies, we are really playing with some dangerous elements here,” Kirk said.

Kirk reiterated that he encourages everyone to think twice before going to college.
