Lars Larson Critical of Sidney Powell’s Comments

Larson’s comment came after Powell urged conservative voters to boycott the Senate run-off elections in Georgia, which will decide the balance of power in the legislature’s upper chamber.

It’s not often that a conservative radio host openly criticizes another conservative who supports President Trump. But Lars Larson, host of The Lars Larson Show on KXL in Portland, Oregon, did just that Thursday night when he called President Trump lawyer and ally Sidney Powell “crazy”.  Larson’s comment came after Powell urged conservative voters to boycott the Senate run-off elections in Georgia, which will decide the balance of power in the legislature’s upper chamber.

“I very much admire Sidney Powell and the work she has done on behalf of the President on a clearly fraudulent election,” Larson said. “But boycotting the elections in Georgia until elections are deemed secure, is a step too far. It’s crazy… It effectively gift wraps the two senate races and the entire Senate to Democrats, as well.”

Larson’s guest, Rick Manning President of American’s For Limited Government, agreed.

“You are not wrong,” Manning said. “If there are systemic problems in voting systems, it’s not going to be fixed in three or four days. We won’t get to the bottom of this until November or March (elections) of 2022. Elector certification is going to be made in the next four days. There isn’t time to mess around with this. She (Powell) just needs to be quiet and let us win the elections in Georgia.”

Larson then offers Powell advice to what she should have said.

“If she had said, number one, we are going to lay the law down on ballot harvesting, and number two, we are going to allow observers in every voting site, that would have an effect. Boycotting the election does not accomplish anything.”

Manning adds that Powell “has been working so hard and is tired, that what sounded like a good idea to say at the time, is not such a good idea now”.

Larson’s and Manning’s criticism of Powell highlight a growing divide among conservatives over President Trump’s refusal to concede the election. Georgia Senatorial candidate David Perdue appeared to privately admit that President-Elect Joe Biden won the election, which caused the hashtag #Perduesaysbidenwon to become a trending topic nationally on Twitter Friday morning. Conversely, President Trump’s staunchest supporters, including many in conservative talk radio, believe the election is fraudulent and they do not consider Mr. Biden as the President-Elect.

The Senate run-off elections in Georgia are set to take place January 5, 2021.

Urban One reported second quarter revenue rose 10.4% to $118.8 million. The company saw $107.5 million in revenue during the same time period in 2021.

“We had a strong finish to Q2, driven by continued robust growth in digital and cable television advertising, both of which were up double digits,” Urban One President and CEO Alfred Liggins III said. “Our spot radio business outperformed the markets in which we operate by 230 Bps, and I was pleased with our overall 10.4% revenue growth, as a result of which we were able to post adjusted EBITDA growth of 6.1% y-o-y.”

He also added, similar to other media companies, a third-quarter slowdown is expected, but with diversified holdings, revenue growths during the quarter are still expected.

Nationally syndicated radio host Dana Loesch criticized “The View’s” Alyssa Farah Griffin for critical comments she made about right-leaning cable news channel One America News Network (OAN) during a segment on MSNBC.

Farah Griffin was discussing the raid on former President Donald Trump’s residence. Loesch played a soundbite, identifying Farah Griffin as one of the new conservative commentators who recently joined “The View.” 

“One thing I will note is this, the narrative that you are going to hear a lot from the right is that Hillary Clinton mishandled classified information,” Farah Griffin said. I would note that OAN and extremist right networks put out a statement saying this is war.” 

Loesch said Farah Griffin’s rant fell short of being effective, seeing as how she wasn’t addressing people that would likely act out in case of political retribution.

“I don’t think those are the people that she needs to be lecturing,” Loesch said.
Loesch spoke to James Golden aka “Bo Snerdley” who served as Rush Limbaugh’s producer/phone screen for the better part of 30 years. 

Golden said Farah Griffin’s comments were meant to provoke a reaction from “American Patriots.”
