Cumulus orders election fraud rhetoric to stop

Post by TC Talks » Mon Jan 11, 2021 8:46 am

I wonder how this translates to the syndicated programming. I have no doubt they would pull the plug on that garbage as well.
After months of stoking anger about alleged election fraud, one of America’s largest talk-radio companies has decided on an abrupt change of direction.

Cumulus Media, which employs some of the most popular right-leaning talk-radio hosts in the United States, has told its on-air personalities to stop suggesting that the election was stolen from President Trump — or else face termination.

A Cumulus executive issued the directive on Wednesday, just as Congress met to certify Joe Biden’s election victory and an angry mob of Trump supporters marched on the Capitol, overwhelmed police and briefly occupied the building, terrorizing lawmakers and leading to the deaths of five people.

“We need to help induce national calm NOW,” Brian Philips, executive vice president of content for Cumulus, wrote in an internal memo, which was first reported by Inside Music Media. Cumulus and its program syndication arm, Westwood One, “will not tolerate any suggestion that the election has not ended. The election has been resolved and there are no alternate acceptable ‘paths.’ ”

The memo adds: “If you transgress this policy, you can expect to separate from the company immediately.”

A Cumulus representative did not respond to repeated requests for comment on Sunday.

Did they do this at any point after Bush v Gore in 2000? Did they do this anytime since 2016 when the whole "not my president" folks were saying that Trump stole the election then?

Would love to see some of the legal challenges that come from this move.

Coordinated attacks against our Capitol building are outside protected free speech.

I think anyone would love to see it sit in the courts for the next three or four years.

I said nothing about "protected free speech." Why do you bring that up?

Because any corporation with shareholders is concerned that they will be found to assist treason. I am just surprised how quickly the entire conservative machine is being dismantled. It's impressive.

Well, that just got about a million more people to tune into Levin tonight.


Democrats were all for riots, until they were against them.

It's a bald faced lie to say Trump incited a riot. A recording of the speech reveals that it wasn't inciting violence. It's been proven by videos that BLM and ANTIFA and possibly other radical leftist groups infiltrated, and the capitol police were told to stand down. It was a setup to try to get Trump impeached. These people who are trying to hurt Trump supporters seem to be possessed by Satan, they are so off the rails. Have you heard the PBS lawyer and what he said about Trump supporters? These people are either insane, possessed by Satan, or both. PBS is only worried about millions of people not contributing. That's why they got rid of him. They sure as hell didn't "get religion".


Disagreeing with Communists is NOT an impeachable offense.
