Kevin Kietzman Examines Deal Done by Chiefs, Car Crash Victim’s Family

Five-year-old Ariel Young was injured when Britt Reid, son of head coach Andy Reid, smashed into her family’s car.

newsletter and podcast from award-winning journalist Kevin Kietzman examine the motives behind a recent deal struck between the Kansas City Chiefs and the family of a baby who was injured in a vehicle collision involving one of its former coaches. 

Five-year-old Ariel Young was injured when Britt Reid, son of head coach Andy Reid, smashed into her family’s car. Reid later told police that he had 2-3 drinks and used Adderall that same day. 

Under the terms of the deal, the team has reportedly agreed to cover all of the girl’s medical bills and provide long-term financial compensation. 

“Would your former employer ever do this for you?” Kietzman asked. “Why did the Chiefs release the information on a Friday afternoon when nobody was looking and why did they release the information just one day after owner Clark Hunt had his only once per season news conference?” 

Kietzman criticized the media for not asking questions and accused the team of striking the deal to cover Andy Reid and team President Mark Donovan individually. 

“You see, these guys won a Super Bowl and didn’t call the NFL commissioner dirty names in private emails,” said Kietzman. “No, they almost certainly broke about a million NFL and team rules and regulations and threw a rager for the coaches prior to the Super Bowl as a perk.” 

Kietzman added that the NFL considers words more detrimental to the league’s image than actions.  

“Patriots’ owner Robert Kraft gets popped in Florida at a massage parlor, prostitution ring,” he added. “No biggie, it just goes away.  It’s not like he wrote an email to somebody that the NFL has lost its mind catering to the woke culture America is now rejecting at every turn.”

In 2019, Keitzman was let go from Sports Radio 810 WHB after critical comments he made on-air about Britt Reid.

Emerald Robinson Lands New Job on Mike Lindell’s Platform

A former Newsmax TV White House correspondent is speaking out about her new job with Mike Lindell’s new platform called “Frank.” 

Emerald Robinson, who was fired from the network after a controversial tweet last year, joined ``Eat the Press” host Steve Malzberg on RT America last week. 

“This is going to be a 9 a.m. morning show with hard-hitting news,” Robinson explained, adding that she didn’t have an exact launch date. “If you follow me on Substack, it’s really going to be an extension of that.” 

Robinson was fired from Newsmax last year following a controversial tweet about the COVID vaccines which subsequently led Twitter to ban her. 

“Dear Christians: the vaccines contain a bioluminescent marker called LUCIFERASE so that you can be tracked,” she tweeted. “Read the last book of the New Testament to see how this ends,” Robinson wrote in a post earlier this week. Twitter removed the tweet as a violation of safety rules.” 

Robinson also criticized Big Tech for banning conservative journalists from platforms such as Twitter and Facebook. 

“We are going to hit those subjects, we are going to look at the real numbers,” said Robinson. “We are going to see more and more censorship ahead of these midterm elections.”  

Last May, Robinson departed One America News Network (OAN) for Newsmax TV.  Last week, DirecTV announced plans to drop OAN, a move that could spell the end of the network.
