While there was some room for praise, particularly on Taiwan, Medved and Will offered their criticism’s of the first week of the Biden presidency.

Normally, members of the media give a new presidential administration 100 days before evaluating their performance. Evidently Michael Medved, host of the nationally syndicated Michael Medved Show, could not wait that long. On Tuesday’s night’s program, with the help of Washington Post columnist and Pulitzer Prize winner George Will, they went through the perceived accomplishments and failures of President Joe Biden’s first full week in office.

“It has only been seven days, but doesn’t it feel longer than that to you?” Medved asked Will.

Will seems to have a more balanced approach to President Biden’s first week in office.

“He has done some good things,” Will said of Biden. “I particularly like and was pleasantly surprised by his stern response to the violation of Taiwan’s air space by the People’s Republic of China by sending the Theodore Roosevelt through the Taiwan Straits. That was a very firm response.  Add in the fact, that he invited the defacto ambassador of Taiwan to the United States to the inauguration. That’s the first time that has ever been done and I think it sends a very clear message that this administration is not going to abandon Taiwan to the tender mercies of China.”

Will’s praise ends there however, as both he and Medved take issue with the number of Executive Orders Mr. Biden has signed that deal with “Culture War” issues. So far, M., Biden has signed a record 37 Executive Orders. By comparison, former President Donald Trump signed four during his entire term.

“That’s the less pleasant aspect to this,” Will said. “He is bowing to the culture wars by allowing transgender athletes in women’s sports and a whole flurry of other Executive Orders that push the (liberal) agenda. To be fair, Mr. Trump signed Executive Orders also so it’s not an uncommon thing to do and they are basically written on water because they can be easily undone by the next administration. But so far, the sheer number of them is a bit much.”

Will seems to have the biggest problem with the Executive Orders dealing with systemic racism.

“I’ve seen these kind of fevers sweep through the country before. They always seem to die out,” he said. “For the most part it’s unintelligible and boring. I don’t even know what it is. Now Disney is saying that Peter Pan and Dumbo are racist cartoons. Eventually these kind of things will get to the point where they won’t pass the laugh test and people will get bored with it. I think that boredom will rescue us.”

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.
