Normally, members of the media give a new presidential administration 100 days before evaluating their performance. Evidently Michael Medved, host of the nationally syndicated Michael Medved Show, could not wait that long. On Tuesday’s night’s program, with the help of Washington Post columnist and Pulitzer Prize winner George Will, they went through the perceived accomplishments and failures of President Joe Biden’s first full week in office.

“It has only been seven days, but doesn’t it feel longer than that to you?” Medved asked Will.

Will seems to have a more balanced approach to President Biden’s first week in office.

“He has done some good things,” Will said of Biden. “I particularly like and was pleasantly surprised by his stern response to the violation of Taiwan’s air space by the People’s Republic of China by sending the Theodore Roosevelt through the Taiwan Straits. That was a very firm response.  Add in the fact, that he invited the defacto ambassador of Taiwan to the United States to the inauguration. That’s the first time that has ever been done and I think it sends a very clear message that this administration is not going to abandon Taiwan to the tender mercies of China.”

Will’s praise ends there however, as both he and Medved take issue with the number of Executive Orders Mr. Biden has signed that deal with “Culture War” issues. So far, M., Biden has signed a record 37 Executive Orders. By comparison, former President Donald Trump signed four during his entire term.

“That’s the less pleasant aspect to this,” Will said. “He is bowing to the culture wars by allowing transgender athletes in women’s sports and a whole flurry of other Executive Orders that push the (liberal) agenda. To be fair, Mr. Trump signed Executive Orders also so it’s not an uncommon thing to do and they are basically written on water because they can be easily undone by the next administration. But so far, the sheer number of them is a bit much.”

Will seems to have the biggest problem with the Executive Orders dealing with systemic racism.

“I’ve seen these kind of fevers sweep through the country before. They always seem to die out,” he said. “For the most part it’s unintelligible and boring. I don’t even know what it is. Now Disney is saying that Peter Pan and Dumbo are racist cartoons. Eventually these kind of things will get to the point where they won’t pass the laugh test and people will get bored with it. I think that boredom will rescue us.”

Longtime Detroit reporter Kevin Dietz has been named full-time host at NewsTalk 760 WJR, he revealed on Twitter. Dietz has been hosting WJR Late Mornings since Frank Beckmann retired six months ago. 

“I took a pretty cool new job! Working 9-noon Monday -Friday on WJR 760,” he said. “I remember JP McCarthy as a kid on this station! I am blessed.”

The Emmy award-winning investigative reporter spent nearly 30-years at Detroit NBC affiliate WDIV before he was fired in 2019 for making an alleged racial comment about another reporter.

“The station has a zero-tolerance policy on racially insensitive comments, and they determined, despite the intent and context of my statement, that it violated the policy,” he said at the time.

Dietz garnered 17 Emmy awards in 26 years at WDIV. He began his career in Traverse City, Michigan in 1988.

WJR has not revealed if Dietz will continue hosting the show alone or if a co-host will be brought in.
