Texas-based syndicated talk show host Joe Pagliarulo said the media is making up stories about Florida congressman Matt Gaetz. 

Pagliarulo was talking about a story that was published in the Orlando Sentinel on Friday that claimed that the embattled congressman told supporters at a rally to use Second Amendment rights against Big Tech. 

“So that’s not what Matt Gaetz said. I mean, he said those words but that’s not how he said it,” Pags remarked. “Matt Gaetz talked about the First Amendment and how Big Tech is squashing the First Amendment and why we must use the First Amendment.” 

Gaetz appeared at an “America First rally” in Dalton, Georgia Friday as he reportedly contemplates running for president in 2024. 

“He never once said we must use the Second Amendment in response to Big Tech,” said Pagliarulo. “That’s a verifiable lie and I am going to find the audio and video so that people will know that’s a lie.”

Gaetz is reportedly under federal investigation for possible sex trafficking, according to the New York Times. 

“I don’t know what Matt Gaetz did or didn’t do when it comes to the charges that he possibly faces or the investigation that’s going on,” Pags said. “I know that he is an innocent guy until somebody proves otherwise.”

CBS News initially suspended activity on Twitter citing due to the “uncertainty” surrounding Elon Musk’s management of the platform but then quickly made a U-turn on their decision.

As a result, the news division has been a punching bag over the last few days and SiriusXM host Megyn Kelly is one of many piling on CBS News as she ridiculed the decision.

“Is this a joke? CBS News – former home to Mike Wallace and Ed Bradley – is afraid of … Twitter?” Kelly tweeted on Sunday.

On Friday, the news network announced that they were suspending activity, but then on Sunday, a decision was made to reverse course and remain active on Twitter.

“After pausing for much of the weekend to assess the security concerns, CBS News and Stations is resuming its activity on Twitter as we continue to monitor the situation,” the statement said.

During the 2022 Midterm Elections, WSB rolled out its first Election Night special, which the station says was a success. However, now the Atlanta-based company wants to follow up with more specials and not wait until 2024.

WSB is in luck, considering the United States Senate race in Georgia between Raphael Warnock and Herschel Walker is heading toward a run-off, possibly allowing the radio station to put together programming. 

“There’s nothing better than having a vision and then having your team totally surpass anything you thought possible,” Ken Charles, WSB’s director of brand programming, said (h/t Radio Ink). 

“We’re going to find other ways to put our talent together again and not wait until election night 2024 to do it again.”

Apart from the Georgia senate race, other prospects for specials will be the primary races once the candidates planning to run for president are revealed.

There’s some shuffling occurring at iHeartMedia News/Talk 610 WIOD Miami as the radio station is debuting a new co-host in Manny Munoz. 

Beginning Monday, Jan. 9, Munoz will be part of a new 10 am-12 pm show with his co-host, yet to be named. Munoz has spent the past fourteen years of his career as an Executive Producer, sports reporter and co-host of “South Florida’s First News with Jimmy Cefalo.”

“We are delighted to expand Manny’s presence on WIOD. Manny will now be leading his own show, Middays 10a-12n – bringing to South Florida, a fresh perspective from one of their own,” Shari Gonzalez, iHeartMedia Miami/Fort Lauderdale Market President, said (h/t Radio Insight).

“What a great fit for the evolution of WIOD. We are grateful to Brian Mudd for his four and a half years with us and are certain Brian will have continued success enlightening and entertaining the Palm Beaches.”

As Cefalo is retiring at the end of the year, Munoz will now move into the 10 am-12 pm slot, with current host Brian Mudd exiting the WIOD lineup after four and a half years, but will remain a figure at News/Talk 1290 WJNO West Palm Beach.

“Born in Hialeah, raised in Kendall and living in Southwest Broward for the last 27 years, I’m excited for the opportunity to have a show focused on the issues that affect South Floridians on a daily basis,” Munoz said.

“I can’t wait to meet my new partner so we can inform, entertain, and bring a smile to WIOD’s loyal listeners and invite new ears to join the show too.”
