Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has taken criticism from media members for his latest handling of the coronavirus pandemic. “The View’s” Joy Behar recently took a shot at DeSantis, calling him a sociopath for signing an order last week banning a mask mandate. 

Despite the state seeing an increase in COVID-19 cases, the order that DeSantis signed bans mask mandates in areas such as public schools and other places. CNN’s Jim Acosta was the latest media member calling the Florida governor out for his mask mandate ban. 

“People should not have to die so some politicians can own the libs. They’re not owning anybody,” Acosta said. “But they may end up owning the pandemic because they’re prolonging it.”

Furthermore, Acosta went after DeSantis for selling merchandise that stated, “Don’t Fauci my Florida,” and telling President Joe Biden to focus on the ongoing issues at the border and not his state’s policies on mask.

“Perhaps it’s time to start naming these new variants that may be coming out after them,” Acosta said. “Instead of the delta variant, why not call it the DeSantis variant?”

“We can sell beer koozies that say ‘Don’t Florida my Fauci’ and use the money to pay for all the funerals in the days to come.”

Charly Arnolt is diving into the next stage of her career. The former ESPN anchor turned Outkick host debuts her now show OutKick the Morning Thursday at 8 AM. The program will be available on various platforms including Facebook, X, and YouTube.

The morning adventure will be the first time the former WWE and ESPN broadcaster flies solo as the host of her own show. Furthermore, Arnolt notes that the program’s setup is how she envisioned it after first meeting with OutKick management. 

“The first thing I said is that I see myself hosting a morning show,” Arnolt said. “That’s what I’ve said my entire life. I’m such a morning person. I think my personality plays really well with mornings because I have a lot of energy and pep. 

“I love to insert humor wherever possible, and I feel like people want to wake up to something that puts a smile on their face. When you wake up, you don’t necessarily want to be confronted with all the doom and gloom. And while some of that will have to be touched upon, I hope to do it in ways that are more enlightening than in a way that drags someone down.”

Arnolt will have a major guest to kick off the new show. UFC president Dana White is stopping by for a conversation. 

OutKick the Morning won’t have time constraints for the interviews. If Arnolt wants to get rolling on a subject, she can adjust the show on the fly and keep the discussion going.

“I’m sitting in my very own office right now. I never thought I was going to have my own office with my name on a placard outside,” Arnolt added. “It’s so cool. It’s really starting to set in. I don’t know really what to think. My brain is in so many different directions. 

“I wouldn’t call it nervous. I’m anxious. I just want to start doing it and figuring it out. I know it’s going to be exciting to get in that seat and really let things I’ve had stuck in my brain for so many years come out.”

The race to earn the Republican nomination for the 2024 Presidential Election is ongoing. As a result, candidates continue to put themselves in the public eye to secure their votes. Mike Pence’s latest way to speak to voters will be on NewsNation.

NewsNation announced that it will host a town hall with the former Vice President and Republican presidential candidate on Wednesday, September 13 at 9 PM ET. Leland Vittert, NewsNation’s chief Washington anchor and On Balance host, will moderate the event. 

While the town hall will occur in front of a live studio audience, there’s also going to be a group of remote voters who are undecided, Independent, or Republican and are located in Iowa.

During the event, Pence plans to discuss his campaign updates and essential topics like the economy, foreign policy, immigration, and education.

For those voters who want to watch the town hall but won’t be in front of a television, it will also be simulcast on NewsNationNow.com. Furthermore, an encore presentation will air on the network again on Thursday, September 14, at midnight ET.

One America News Network (OAN) and reporter Chanel Rion have settled a defamation lawsuit brought forth by former Dominion Voting Systems executive Eric Coomer.

A letter filed with the District Court in Denver County, Colorado says the two parties “have fully and finally settled the disputes among them concerning Plaintiff’s claims against Herring Networks, Inc. dba One America News Network and Chanel Rion only.”

Coomer is a former Dominion Voting Systems executive who claims he was forced into hiding due to false conspiracy theories pushed by outlets like OAN after the 2020 Presidential election was won by Joe Biden. The former executive brought forth the lawsuit in his home state in 2021. In the suit, he alleges former President Trump’s 2020 campaign staff, including Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani, Newsmax, and other conservative outlets defamed him after the election. He also launched a lawsuit against MyPillow founder Mike Lindell for similar issues.

During its coverage of the 2020 election, OAN reportedly claimed Coomer met with Antifa on a conference call to plan how to steal the election for Biden. Rion produced a three-part series titled “Dominion-izing the Vote”, which featured interviews that claimed Coomer was “responsible for putting his finger on the scales of our election” and was potentially guilty of treason.

Terms of the settlement were not disclosed.

Earlier this year, Dominion Voting Systems settled a lawsuit with Fox News for similar claims to the tune of $787.5 million. The company still has pending lawsuits against OAN, Newsmax, Giuliani, and Powell. Coomer’s lawsuit was filed separately from Dominion’s.
