A talk radio host is under fire for allegedly making defamatory comments about Donald Trump’s former Rhode Island campaign co-chair.

News Talk WPRO’s Dan Yorke is being accused by Gerald Zarrella of portraying him in a negative light with the intent to cause harm to his name and reputation.

The Providence Journal reports that while no suit has been filed, Zarrella’s attorney has filed a miscellaneous petition in Rhode Island Superior Court seeking to issue subpoenas and depose Yorke.

The action comes after a political fundraiser Zarrella was planning for Democratic Governor Dan McKeewas canceled because McKee wanted nothing to do with anyone associated (or formerly associated) with Donald Trump.

“I am proud that I’m an Italian American from Rhode Island,” Zarrella told the paper. “To portray us all as Mafia or crooked people, we’re not crooked people. We are not crooked people. We are sensitive people. We have families. We raise children. We pay our dues. I want to get the tapes.” The report said neither Yorke nor WPRO, which is owned by Cumulus Media, have yet to comment.

Dan Bongino: CDC Appears Confused Over Mask Mandate

Bongino’s heated comments came during his nationally syndicated radio show Tuesday as he questioned why the government agency keeps backtracking on its stance on masks and vaccinated people.

Right-wing radio host Dan Bongino criticized a decision by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that reverses the course on vaccinated Americans having to wear a mask indoors.

Bongino’s heated comments came during his nationally syndicated radio show Tuesday as he questioned why the government agency keeps backtracking on its stance on masks and vaccinated people.

“The CDC appears confused yet again,” Bongino said. “First, they said no masks, then they said masks, then they said mandate masks, then they said two masks, and then there were people in the mainstream media that were asking how many masks can we safely wear.”

CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said new data shows the delta variant behaves “uniquely differently” from its predecessors and could make vaccinated people infectious.

“If these things work, the face diapers, then why didn’t they work?”
Walensky used the new mandate as an opportunity to encourage people to get vaccinated while reiterating that the new guidance affects K-12 schools who must now wear a mask indoors, including teachers, staff, students, and visitors, regardless of vaccination status.

“You are sticking kids in these face diapers, and you have yet to produce a shred of damn evidence that these things work,” Bongino exclaimed.

The Hungarian native served as Deputy Assistant to the President in the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump.

Gorka has briefed the Central Intelligence Agency, the Defense Intelligence Agency, the U.S. Navy Seals, and the Commandant of the Marine Corps. He also served as an expert for the Department of Justice during the Boston Bombing trial and testified before Congress on the threat of Global Jihadism.

Former 77 WABC host turned politician, Curtis Sliwa, wants the city to cover expenses for anyone who saves a cat or a dog from being euthanized at a city shelter.

The Republican mayoral nominee told the New York Post that he wants to give people a $1,000 “Pet Snap Card” that they could use for food, supplies, and related expenses at local stores.

“This Pet SNAP Card will help promote and facilitate adoptions throughout New York City by easing the financial expenses of pets,” he told the paper. “It works in the same way as the traditional SNAP program except it can only be used toward pet expenses, food, supplies, vet care, etc.”

Sliwa told voters that he wants to get rid of any animal shelter that kills pets.

“I will continue to make it one of the key campaign planks,” he said during a press conference. “Part of our mandate is that when I become mayor, there will be no-kill shelters in the city of New York.”

Sliwa will face off against Democratic mayoral nominee Eric Adams in November.
