Nick Kayal: Chris Cuomo ‘Looks Like A Stooge’ For CNN Comments

“You’re always going to question the strategy of the place you used to work at, but if you CNN is really going to to try to report the news and be objective, you’re foolish.”

Nick Kayal is preparing to take over mornings from Rich Zeoli on 1210 WPHT next week, and joined the current morning show to discuss a variety of topics, including the shift by CNN to return to its roots as a strictly news reporting agency. Kayal and Zeoli reminisced about CNN’s former place in the cable news landscape before commenting on its current state.

“You’ve got CNN trying to go centrists and it’s kinda funny to me because CNN’s glory days, Nick Kayal, were when you had missing planes and storms. And Wolf Blitzer’s beard. Those were the glory days of CNN.”

“And the O.J. (Simpson) car chase,” Kayal responded. “Which I watched vehemently when I was 10 years old.”

“Who didn’t? The best would have been O.J. car chasing into a tornado while a plane went missing. And Wolf Blitzer reporting on it with his beard from the situation room” Zeoli joked. “CNN went too far left, were MSNBC light, and it was a disaster for them. (CNN+) lasted — I think — two weeks, and now they’re going centrists, but you’re saying (Chris) Cuomo is saying that’s a mistake.”

“You’re always going to question the strategy of the place you used to work at, but if you CNN is really going to to try to report the news and be objective, you’re foolish. I’ve got a plot of land to sell you down the street. But if they are truly going there, Cuomo looks like a stooge. But if you believe CNN is gonna try to go down the middle, I don’t buy it one bit.”

On the debut podcast of On with Kara Swisher published Monday, Cuomo said CNN was making a mistake by returning to its news reporting roots.

“I don’t like the idea that they’re saying they’re going to be more middle ground,” Cuomo said. “I think a lot of people in the media like to see CNN go down because it was so powerful. And they tried to make that happen because I believe that that’s what our business is often about, is tearing things down as a negativity as a proxy for insight, but I don’t believe in middle ground.”

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.

Champlin Broadcasting Conservative Talk The Eagle 96.9 KQOB Enid/Oklahoma City and 1640 KZLS Enid will look a little different for its listeners as the station has rebranded.

The station features a syndicated lineup, including Hugh Hewitt, Brian Kilmeade, Dan Bongino, Mike Gallagher, Joe Pags, and Bill O’Reilly. Furthermore, with the rebrand possibly comes a new addition.

Freedom 96.9 is teasing the addition of Dana Loesch to the lineup as well to enhance the rebrand further as the station begins a new chapter as it provides news/talk to the residents.
