Nationally syndicated radio host Glenn Beck said Wednesday that former President Donald Trump was on his best behavior Tuesday while announcing his 2024 Presidential election bid. 

Beck said several mainstream media outlets like the Washington Post, NPR, and CNN wrote disparaging headlines about Trump’s announcement. 

“I thought Donald Trump did the best that he could do last night without firing off any shots,” Beck said. “But it wasn’t enough for the media.” 

“This is from the Washington Post,” he said. “Donald Trump, the twice impeached president who refused to concede defeat and inspired a failed attempt to overturn the 2020 election, culminating in a deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol, officially declared on Tuesday night that he’s running to retake the White House in 2024.” 

Beck said CNN wrote that Trump aims to become only the second commander and chief ever elected to two non-consecutive terms. 

“Trump delivered a relatively subdued speech, rife with exaggerated claims about his four years in office,” Beck said of the CNN piece. “At least at CNN, it took them three paragraphs, where the Washington Post got it all in at one.” 

Steve Burguiere, aka Stu, said media outlets were quick to editorialize Tuesday’s news while reminding readers about Trump’s sorted past in the White House. 

“We all remember the story,” he added. “You don’t need to remind us. They all put it in the headlines.” 

Beck stated that Fox News spent 45 minutes covering Trump’s announcement. CNN devoted 25 minutes of airtime covering the event at Mar-a-Lago. MSNBC did not cover the press conference at all.

    The closing comment in this story is simply incorrect.

    While MSNBC didn’t air the announcement event live, they DID cover the story, mentioning and analyzing it as it happened on Alex Wagner’s program.

    If your point was to say they didn’t air it live, then say that, but don’t say they “did not cover” the event when any objective review of the programming they aired during that hour would clearly demonstrate the opposite.

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.

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.
