Daily Wire CEO and co-founder Jeremy Boreing issued a statement praising Cumulus Media after the broadcaster announced it would pull future sponsorship plans from the Podcast Movement Conference.

Last month, Podcast Movement raised eyebrows by publicly apologizing to attendees for the presence of conservative radio host and podcaster Ben Shapiro, who co-founded The Daily Wire with Boreing.

Cumulus, who handles sales for The Daily Wire, announced Tuesday they would no longer sponsor Podcast Movement saying “our tenet is that Every Voice Matters, and we support conferences and trade events where differing political viewpoints can be expressed and received with respect”.

Boreing issued a statement praising the move, saying “I’m glad to see our longtime partner Cumulus/Westwood One taking such a strong and public stand against Podcast Movement’s outright and abject bigotry.  Though Podcast Movement quietly removed their bigoted tweet thread over the weekend, they still have yet to retract and publicly apologize for their hateful comments about Ben Shapiro and The Daily Wire. In an illiberal moment such as the one we’re currently living in, if we don’t stand up to this kind of bigoted behavior it’s only going to get worse.  I certainly hope Cumulus’s strong response to Podcast Movement is the first of many others like it.”

Keith Olbermann: American Journalism ‘Re-Invented’ During Trump Presidency

“The overwriting principle used to be: get a scoop, get in the paper or on the air as soon as possible because that’s your job, and that’s your only actual value to society as well.”

During his Countdown with Keith Olbermann podcast Friday, the former cable news host slammed a recent opinion from Politico’s John Harris that Americans need more journalists like Maggie Haberman, among others.

Olbermann has been critical of Haberman’s decision to withhold important facts in relation to the former President Donald Trump and save them for her upcoming book rather than report them in The New York Times.

“What Harris does not understand is American ‘journalism’ did re-invent itself,” Olbermann said. “The overwriting principle used to be: get a scoop, get in the paper or on the air as soon as possible because that’s your job, and that’s your only actual value to society as well. It is also — and I speak as somebody who broke a lot of sports news including the Wayne Gretzky trade and Michael Jordan’s first dalliance with a comeback — it is the joy of doing the journalism. You have the story, and nobody else does!”

He continued by saying Harris and Haberman believe the point of American journalism is not to inform the public but rather how much money you can make in the process.

Haberman’s book “Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America” is expected to hit bookshelves on Tuesday, October 4th.

Former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is joining his brother Chris in the news media world as the politician is launching a political action committee and a podcast. 

“I am starting a political action committee to elect the right people to office,” Cuomo said (h/t CNN). “We do not need more panderers. We need producers. We need people committed to fight for change and who get results.”

The video also featured familiar criticism of social media, which he has often blamed for fueling the backlash the led to his resignation, which effectively halted state lawmakers’ plans to impeach and remove him from office.

“It’s a Twitter mob, but the mob has power and many politicians and press are afraid to challenge it lest the mob turn on them,” Cuomo added. 

Cuomo’s podcast intends to dive into what he believes is the truth and how the platform will differ from what is already out there. 

“This forum will be different. My intention is to speak the full truth, unvarnished, from the inside out, frank and candid,” Cuomo said. 

“As a person who’s been in the room many times for many years and knows these people and knows their games, and as a person who actually did the job.”

“I just think that she’s a bit cray-cray,” she added. 

Osbourne left CBS in 2021 after a stint on “The Talk.” She said she was never approached to sit on “The View.”
