Accusations of racism prompted the departure of St. Louis Public Radio general manager, Tim Eby. His exit was acknowledged in an email sent out to staffers from University of Missouri-St. Louis’ Vice Chancellor of Advancement Paul Herring. The radio station is operated as part of the university. Tom Livingston is now the station’s general manager.

Eby came under fire last month after a letter written by a group that represents St. Louis Public Radio’s reporters and producers of color was released. The letter titled “Racism exists at St. Louis Public Radio Acknowledge it” accused Eby of failing to “transform the station into a diverse, equitable place to work.”

“But instead, he (Eby) chose to uphold white supremacy at the station by remaining complacent with the status quo,” the letter read.

Eby ran St. Louis Public Radio for 11 years. He also worked at Ohio State University and in South Bend, Indiana.

The university has hired a St. Louis-based law firm to investigate equity and inclusion practices at the NPR affiliate. A group representing the 21 employees said they have no confidence in the firm’s ability to investigate the station.

Cumulus Media talk show host Dan Mandis accused White House Press Secretary Karin Jean-Pierre of being untrustworthy following repeated attempts to dodge questions regarding the federal raid on former President Donald Trump’s home. 

Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy peppered Jean-Pierre with questions Tuesday about whether the Biden administration was using law enforcement to go after political opponents.

“I did think it was really interesting for Karin Jean-Pierre to try to not answer anything as it relates to the raid on Mar-a-Lago,” said Mandis. 

Mandis was filling in for Vince Coglianese on News Talk 105.9 WMAL in Washington D.C. Mandis hosts the morning show on Cumulus-owned SuperTalk 99.7 WTN in Nashville, Tennessee. 

“The less that they (White House), the more suspicious they look,” Mandis added. “During yesterday’s press briefing, she (Jean-Pierre) refused to provide any answers whatsoever.”

Mandis said that Jean-Pierre issued a “no comment” 18 times during the briefing. 

“The White House Press Corps did try to get her to make some sort of a statement,” he said. 

“The Vince Coglianese Show” is heard daily on WMAL-FM 105.9 from 3-6 p.m.

Erick Erickson: Media to Blame for America’s Division

Erickson’s rant inspired this week’s FBI raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago mansion.

Atlanta-based talk show host Erick Erickson said America is divided, and the media is to blame. 

Erickson told his national audience Wednesday that the endless charade of mistakes in reporting about former President Donald Trump has spelled disaster for the mainstream media. 

“Nobody believes the press; they’ve discredited themselves,” Erickson said. “We are beyond the beginning of the end for people taking the press seriously. The elite in this country who occupy powers and positions of influence and seats in the media are to blame.” 

Erickson’s rant inspired this week’s FBI raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago mansion. Trump, who was not home then, has insisted that he be caught in the crosshairs of a political witch-hunt from President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ). 

“Maybe they (FBI) are just going to keep going after him until they find a way to get him (Trump). There were 76-78 million people who supported Donald Trump in his last election, and yet the media treats them like pariahs,” he said. 

Erick Erickson hosts the “Erick Erickson Show” live every weekday from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. ET. You can learn more about him by clicking this link.
