NAB President Curtis Legeyt is applying with the US Justice Department siding with reporters.

“NAB strongly supports the codification of new rules safeguarding journalists’ right to report the news without the threat of government interference,” Legeyt said.

“The use of confidential sources is pivotal to a free press’s responsibility to expose corruption, protect our democracy, ensure accountability and shine a light on the truth. Broadcasters appreciate Attorney General [Merrick] Garland for taking this important step, and we urge Congress to pass a federal shield law that would create long-lasting protections for a free and open press.”

On Thursday, Garland reversed Donald Trump-era efforts to seize records like e-mails of journalists and correspondents. Garland first issued a memo in July of 2021 reversing the previous administration’s ruling. Garland said Thursday that freedom of the press deserves continued protection.

“These regulations recognize the crucial role that a free and independent press plays in our democracy,” Garland said in a statement.

“Because freedom of the press requires that members of the news media have the freedom to investigate and report the news, the new regulations are intended to provide enhanced protection to members of the news media from certain law enforcement tools and actions that might unreasonably impair newsgathering.”

Under former Attorney General Bill Barr, efforts to access e-mails from reporters at several news outlets were revealed to the public.

Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson hosted a Presidential Forum for TheBlaze, and many joked that the conversation he hosted with former Vice President Mike Pence killed his campaign. Count Joe Rogan in that camp.

During a conversation with comedian Jim Gaffigan on The Joe Rogan Experience, the comedian told Rogan he wouldn’t want to be Pence during the current Republican primary.

“Did you see that interview that he did with Tucker Carlson? He was talking about the demise of the cities in America and all the problems that we have in America,” said Rogan. And (Pence) said, ‘That’s not my concern.’

“And they’re like, ‘You’re done. You just f—ed up! That’s it. No one cares about you now.’ Like he literally killed his campaign with that one conversation with Tucker Carlson.”

Pence was maligned for his answer to Carlson. As Rogan stated, several conservative commentators argued that the former Trump Vice President would not be able to rebound from the conversation with Carlson.

According to FiveThirtyEight.com, Pence was polling at 7.4% on July 14th, the day of the Presidential Forum with Carlson. As of Saturday, July 29th, Pence is polling at 4.4%.

A federal lawsuit against CNN brought forth by Donald Trump has been dismissed. KFI-AM 640 host Bill Handel thought that was the logical conclusion.

During his program Monday morning, Handel called Trump “Mr. Litigation” before noting that the premise of the suit was disingenuous.

“He filed a lawsuit against CNN, comparing the phrase ‘The Big Lie’ somehow connected with Nazi Germany and Joseph Goebbels propaganda. Because the philosophy of Nazi Germany was ‘If you lie often enough, and long enough, people will believe it’,” said Handel. “Therefore, you call ‘the big lie’ or someone who refers to what CNN as ‘the big lie’ is connecting Nazism to in this case, Trump. The federal judge tossed it out. Goodbye. Dud…I don’t think he has won one lawsuit regarding the election.”

Handel argued that the original lawsuit wasn’t about malpractice from CNN as much as it was about Trump being overly litigious.

“He files lawsuits like crazy with the understanding that he has unlimited resources. And he can pay against you to death,” Handel continued. “I mean, he just goes on and on. You’re gonna see that with these indictments where lawsuit after lawsuit is being filed to at least delay all of them.”

On today’s episode of The Ben Shapiro Show, Shapiro criticized CNN anchor Casey Hunt for her coverage of Joe Biden’s 7th grandchild and the media’s general defense of the Biden family.

Shapiro led into the segment, “So CNN host Casey hunt, had on a CNN analyst named Scott Jennings, and Scott Jennings is going pretty hard after Hunter, and immediately Casey transitions, like ‘We have to be respectful’.”

Shapiro then played a clip of the exchange between Hunt and Jennings, “It’s not Republicans, with all due respect, who made Hunter Biden into a complete scumbag. On this and other issues, ignoring his own daughter for four years, and the President of The United States hanging up a stocking for the dog and not for his seventh grandchild,” Jennings stated.

Hunt then responded, “We can also have sympathy for people who are struggling with addiction.”

Jennings responded, with sympathy and understanding for families struggling with addiction. He brought the argument back to the character of Joe Biden for not showing his grandchild acceptance, as many American grandparents do in similar family situations.

“I mean, the fact that she says that she jumps in and tries to stop, stop Scott Jennings, this is just demonstrative of everything that the Biden family relies upon, which is the acquiescence of the media, in all these situations, which is really what so much of this is about,” Shapiro concluded.
