The Kyle Rittenhouse trial continues, and the judge presiding over it blocked journalists working for MSNBC. Judge Bruce Schroeder stated that a freelance producer for the network allegedly pursued the jury bus to take pictures of jurors. 

“I have instructed that nobody from MSNBC News be permitted in this building for the duration of this trial,” Judge Schroeder said

“This is a very serious matter, and I don’t know what the ultimate truth of it is, but absolutely it would go without much thinking that someone who is following a jury bus, that is a very … that is an extremely serious matter and will be referred to the proper authorities for further action.” 

The freelance producer was arrested and didn’t take any pictures of the jurors. Furthermore, he reportedly told the police he had followed the jury bus at the request of his MSNBC bosses.

“Last night, a freelancer received a traffic citation. While the traffic violation took place near the jury van, the freelancer never contacted or intended to contact the jurors during deliberations, and never photographed or intended to photograph them,” NBC said in a statement. 

“We regret the incident and will fully cooperate with the authorities on any investigation.”

Tucker Carlson Takes Aim at Howard Stern Over Covid Commentaries

“Maybe it was coronavirus that broke him, maybe it was hormonal changes from middle age, he is now a coward.”

Tucker Carlson took aim at a mega media star on Thursday night. The highly opinionated FOX News host made it clear, he views SiriusXM radio host Howard Stern as a coward.

During Carlson’s show, he focused on comments Stern made on the air on September 7th of 2021 and January 3rd and 19th of 2022 and followed up by labeling the king of all media as a coward. That was further supported on social media where Carlson tweeted out the clip of the segment where he blasted Stern.

“Howard Stern, by any measure, is one of the great radio hosts of all time,” Carlson said as he began his commentary. “He has made a huge amount of money for doing what he does but there is a reason for it. He was incredibly brave, vulgar yes, but truly talented, above all courageous.”

That was followed by Carlson mentioning a number of Stern’s accomplishments and crediting him for his prior fights against free speech and the government.

But then, Carlson described Stern as he sees him now.

“Maybe it was coronavirus that broke him, maybe it was hormonal changes from middle age, he is now a coward. His broadcast is now about cowardice. Amplifying his fears about corona over the air, and attacking, more precisely, attacking anybody else who has decided to live life as a free person.”

Carlson then aired the September clip from Stern’s show where he talked about wanting it mandated that everyone had to be vaccinated. That was then followed by a clip from Stern’s show in early January where he criticized Oprah Winfrey for holding large gatherings at her home.

From there, Tucker mocked Stern and moved into his next soundbyte from Stern’s January 19th program where he said that those who weren’t vaccinated wouldn’t be able to seek treatment at a hospital if he was in power and had his way.

The segment ended with Carlson stating ‘there is something sad about this’ before welcoming Jimmy Dore to the show, who proceeded to ridicule Stern and explain how the satellite radio host has lost his way and turned into a modern day version of Don Imus.

“CBS Mornings” co-host Gayle King appears to be staying with the company as CNN’s Brian Stelter reports that she’ll renew her contract.  

King, who recently celebrated her 10th anniversary with CBS, saw her contract coming to an end this year. Furthermore, there was speculation whether she’d remain as her deal and that of anchor Norah O’Donnell is due to expire. 

Nonetheless, Stelter does caution that CBS hasn’t confirmed King’s renewal, and any new deal most probably never will be. Moreover, the morning show anchor is said to be discreet about contract matters.

“King’s future has been a guessing game both inside and outside CBS for months, so any end to the guessing is a step forward for CBS News boss Neeraj Khemlani,” Stelter wrote. 

A few months ago, CBS rebranded its morning show with King at the forefront, so it would be a significant loss to see her go less than a year into the new program.
