Senator Johnson Blasts The Mainstream Media on ‘The Joe Pags Show’

“Senator Ron Johnson told ‘The Joe Pags Show’ the mainstream media affected the results of the 2020 election more than Russia did in 2016, and ripped the press for its reporting on the corona virus.”

Republican Senator Ron Johnson from Wisconsin was a guest on The Joe Pags Show Thursday evening and host Joe Pagliarulo gave him the platform to attack the mainstream media on two separate fronts. The interview appeared on the new video platform Rumble, due to YouTube’s recent policy guidelines on blocking some videos that contain a conservative viewpoint on topics like the corona virus and election fraud.

First, Johnson, who is the Chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, criticized a New York Times article and editorial that said he was “touting unproven and dubious claims about the corona virus” and called Johnson “The Snake-oil Salesman of the Senate”. Secondly, he claims that the media had a bigger impact on the 2020 election than Russia in 2016.

“The fact that we have ignored early treatment of the virus with hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin (a deworming medication used to treat livestock and other animals), has cost hundreds of thousands of lives… They are miracle drugs. And the New York Times calls the brilliant doctors who support the use of these drugs and myself snake-oil salesman? Ridiculous. The doctor who wrote the OP-ED has never even treated one COVID patient. The doctors who testified at the hearing have treated thousands.”

Johnson adds that the reason the media keeps downplaying the effectiveness of both drugs is because they are inexpensive and readily available.

“Drug companies are not focusing on the benefits of these drugs because they don’t make money off of them,” Johnson said. “Instead, they are pouring all kinds of money and research into more expensive drugs just so they can make more money.”

Pagliarulo also claims that the media is covering up the effectiveness of what he calls a breakthrough treatment.

“The media is sitting on this because it’s just a twenty dollar drug,” Pagliarulo said. “I wrote something about how effective hydroxychloroquine is on Twitter and I got banned for three weeks.”

 The pair then switched gears and began to criticize the media for covering up details concerning Hunter Biden and the role that the cover up played in the outcome of the 2020 election.

“I said on this program back in October that there was an investigation into Hunter Biden and now Big Media just finds this out yesterday after the election,” Pagliarulo said.

“Right. It’s only coming out now that the election is past,” Johnson agreed. “According to a McLaughlin poll 13 percent of Biden voters say they would not have voted for him if they had known about Hunter Biden. The media covered it up until after the election because President Trump would have won going away. I think it is fair to say that the American media interfered with this election far more than Russia did in 2016. That’s where the election fraud is in this country, from the media.”

Johnson made similar claims to Sean Hannity earlier in the week on Fox News. However, according to a Newsweek article, it is unclear to which poll Johnson is referring. and it questions the validity of McLaughlin due to its association with conservative media outlet Newsmax

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.

Rather than calling itself The Eagle 96.9, the radio station will now be known as Freedom 96.9 (h/t Radio Insight). KZLS started simulcasting on KQOB at the beginning of this year after the 96.9 signal was leased to Citadel and Cumulus Media for nineteen years. 

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.
