Nationally syndicated radio host Dan Bongino returned to the airwaves with a bang Wednesday. 

The former Secret Service agent-turned political commentator has been missing from his daily radio show on Cumulus-owned Westwood One since he issued an ultimatum for the company to drop its vaccine mandates. 

Bongino said he wants to create some type of fund to help former Cumulus employees who fell victim to the company’s mandates. He also launched into a verbal assault on unnamed radio hosts who may be going behind his back and speaking out against his anti-mandate sentiment. 

“Behind the scenes in this business, there are a lot of jealous, envious people, and that’s putting it mildly because I’m trying to be nice,” said Bongino. “A lot of them are largely concerned about where they’re going to get their next million bucks or their next radio contract, and not really concerned about conservative stuff.” 

Earlier in the day, Bongino recorded a Facebook Live video titled “emergency press conference” in which he lambasted conservative hosts, some who hold the same time slot as he does. 

Cumulus Media has not issued a public statement about Bongino’s statements on the company’s vaccine mandates. Several radio companies have mandates in place that require employees to be fully vaccinated as a condition of employment.

Unlike so many pundits who have expressed outrage that Twitter’s Elon Musk has reinstated former President Donald Trump’s account, Clay Travis and Buck Sexton said Monday they’re excited about the prospect of Trump tweeting again. 

Musk reactivated Trump’s account over the weekend after more than 15 million users polled voted for his reinstatement. Trump’s account was banned following the Jan 6th riots. 

“There are huge implications to this (reinstatement) and a lot of variables at play,” Sexton said. “The one thing is that we know that Trump has TRUTH social. The problem is there’s going to end up being one dominant platform and then some other platforms that are more niche.” 

Despite the reinstatement, Trump has not confirmed whether he will return to Twitter. 

“What Elon Musk is doing right now, is showing true bravery,” said Travis. “First of all, he put up a poll to allow people to vote on whether Trump should be allowed back on the platform. I’m not sure if Trump being back on Twitter if he decides to reclaim his account is going to be beneficial to him at all. In fact, I think it may benefit Democrats.”

More than two years after the New York Post broke the Hunter Biden laptop story, CBS News said they have confirmed the authenticity of the story. 

News Talk 105.9 WMAL host Vince Coglianese said Monday that CBS News appears to be “melting down.” Coglianese said several media outlets knew within days that the Hunter Biden laptop story was significant, especially as his father was running to become the President of the United States. 

“Organizations like the Daily Caller and the New York Post had authenticated it immediately,” said Coglianese. “The media has come along begrudgingly over the last couple of years and said it could be kind of real I guess.” 

Two years ago, former President Donald Trump told CBS’ Lesley Stahl on “60 Minutes” the Hunter Biden laptop was real and should be covered by the media. 

According to the New York Post, on Monday CBS News correspondent Catherine Herridge reported that she received a copy of Hunter Biden’s hard drive from former Delaware computer repairman John Paul Mac Isaac. She also said she spoke to a scientist who said the hard drive appeared to be real. 

“CBS News finally signed off on the ability for Catherine Herridge to say this stuff in public,” stated Coglianese. “It’s hard to believe that it’s because of Herridge kind of doggedly staying after this and her saying we have to get a report out that they finally aired this.”

CBS News initially suspended activity on Twitter citing due to the “uncertainty” surrounding Elon Musk’s management of the platform but then quickly made a U-turn on their decision.

As a result, the news division has been a punching bag over the last few days and SiriusXM host Megyn Kelly is one of many piling on CBS News as she ridiculed the decision.

“Is this a joke? CBS News – former home to Mike Wallace and Ed Bradley – is afraid of … Twitter?” Kelly tweeted on Sunday.

On Friday, the news network announced that they were suspending activity, but then on Sunday, a decision was made to reverse course and remain active on Twitter.

“After pausing for much of the weekend to assess the security concerns, CBS News and Stations is resuming its activity on Twitter as we continue to monitor the situation,” the statement said.
