Conservative radio hosts are often lightning rods for criticism, but callers rarely unleash criticism directly at the host themselves. Larry Elder, the African-American host of The Larry Elder Show, endured such harsh criticism from a caller on Tuesday night as he was called a “Mother F*cking Racist”, an “Uncle Tom” and many other racially charged expletives.

The nearly one minute call was left on the program’s voice mail so Elder invited the unidentified caller to call back into the program and discuss the issues that he had raised. Interestingly, Elder did not blame the caller for his outburst, but instead the media.

“The media has pushed this idea of systemic racism for ratings and they have convinced this gentleman and others that I am the enemy,” Elder said. “It’s ingenious if you think about it. It’s a classic sting operation. They (the media) have convinced their mark that they haven’t been stung and if they do realize it, they blame someone else.”

Elder adds that anger toward conservatives comes from people blindly following the media.

“People like this gentleman are like lemmings,” Elder said. “They will follow the media right off of a cliff and then pull the lever for the Democrats 95 percent of the time, even though they have policies that are directly harmful to their best interests. They should be mad at those policies, not me.”

Elder also implies that fostering anger toward conservatives is part of a Democratic plan to keep people from focusing on failed policies.

“Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have to be laughing over this,” Elder said. “They know it’s all B.S. and yet they have painted me as the bad guy, because I say things like the majority of Black and Brown parents in the inner city want school choice for their children. That goes against their agenda, so they paint me as a racist and now this gentleman calls in talking about my lips, among other things. Just because I support (former) President Trump, who had the best economy ever for Black People and supports school choice, that does not make me a racist.”

Elder closes the segment by addressing his caller directly.

“’Sir, there is not some invisible force holding people back from realizing their potential,” he said. “I have more faith in you than you do in me. You can accomplish anything you want. If you want to be angry at something, focus on the policies. In Baltimore, a city with a Democratic majority, in 13 schools, zero percent of the students can do math at grade level. Be mad at that. Get angry over the fact that 70 percent of the homicides in Baltimore are Black on Black violence. Don’t be used and manipulated by the media, sir. They are treating you like a moron. They are laughing at you. How is calling me and attacking me helping? They are treating you like a schoolboy and honestly, you should be ashamed of yourself for letting it happen.”

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.
