Jemele Hill Critiques Media Coverage of “Fan Boy Space Camp”

We all know Jemele Hill because of her sports acumen and coverage for ESPN and other outlets throughout the years. However, if you know anything about Hill’s body of work, you know she’ll never be silenced and won’t just stick to sports.

On Tuesday, while the world gawked at another Billionaire strapping into a rocket and blasting off into space, Hill called out everyone in sight.

First, she’s “bothered” by the media outlets covering these space missions.

“The breathless way the media is pandering to the asinine fantasies of billionaires and largely shying away from serious and real questions that need to be asked. It’s the absurd flaunting of wealth and how (Richard) Branson and other billionaires are able to do (stuff) like have an elaborate fan boy space camp because they are masters of exploitation.”

Next on her list, the men behind these zero-gravity trips.

“We’re in the middle of a pandemic, a climate crisis, a racism crisis, the end of Democracy but according to Branson, being able to travel to space to going to make everything all better,” she said on the ‘Jemele Hill is Unbothered’ Podcast.

Hill’s commentary is complete with audio of Branson claiming that some day soon everyone will have equal access to space.

“What i’m trying to figure out is how space travel is going to be equitable,” she responded. “Branson is charging between 200 and $250,000 to reserve a ticket on his next flight. Meanwhile his buddy Elon Musk reportedly wants to charge people $55 million per passenger to journey to the international space station. And (Jeff) Bezos, he wants to charge just a mere $28 million per passenger for a space mission.

“Branson wants us to believe that if we just give it a few years, a ticket to Mars is going to be like a Delta flight to San Antonio.”

She then calls out Branson for using over $200 million of tax payer money to fund his space program and furloughing employees for eight weeks during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“He got space money, though,” she added.

SiriusXM radio host Howard Stern told “Morning Joe’s” Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist in an extensive interview that MSNBC is the network for him regarding cable news consumption. 

Stern stated that he’s a major fan of “Morning Joe” and went the extra mile to say that he and co-host Joe Scarborough share the same political idealogy.

“I watch you guys every morning,” Stern said (h/t Mediaite). “I really enjoy the show. Oddly, I agree politically with almost everything Joe says. I don’t think there’s much difference there.”

The radio host thanked MSNBC for providing him with what he loves: 24/7 news. Additionally, Stern offered a shoutout to network host Symone Sanders and stated he’s no fan of Dateline repeats.

“By the way, I want to give a shoutout to MSNBC,” Stern added. “Thank God you don’t play the old Datelines anymore on the weekends. I like news. I watch this channel exclusively for news. I tune out on the weekend. 

“It’s like all news stuff. I’m watching old Datelines. I like when you guys are onI like news 24/7, and now I find I’m getting it. I get Symone on the weekend. Big fan of hers. Symone coming on strong. What can I tell you? I know the whole lineup.”

Charges against John DePetro have been dismissed as the radio host faced a trespassing charge related to an incident over the summer during a Monday court hearing.

DePetro was arrested in mid-August outside a home on Staples Avenue in Warwick.

Police searched the house several months earlier as part of an investigation into the disappearance of Charlotte Lester, who has been missing for six months.

“I respect our justice system and respect law enforcement, specifically the Warwick PD,” DePetro said on Twitter. “The search for Charlotte Lester continues as I resume efforts searching for answers into her disappearance and holding Mark Perkins accountable for his actions against myself and Ladybug.”

The man who lives there, Mark Perkins, was also arrested the following day after he allegedly charged at DePetro with a lawnmower while DePetro was live-streaming. 

Unlike DePetro, who had his charges dismissed, Perkins still faces an assault charge, according to court records.

Champlin Broadcasting Conservative Talk The Eagle 96.9 KQOB Enid/Oklahoma City and 1640 KZLS Enid will look a little different for its listeners as the station has rebranded.

Rather than calling itself The Eagle 96.9, the radio station will now be known as Freedom 96.9 (h/t Radio Insight). KZLS started simulcasting on KQOB at the beginning of this year after the 96.9 signal was leased to Citadel and Cumulus Media for nineteen years. 

The station features a syndicated lineup, including Hugh Hewitt, Brian Kilmeade, Dan Bongino, Mike Gallagher, Joe Pags, and Bill O’Reilly. Furthermore, with the rebrand possibly comes a new addition.

Freedom 96.9 is teasing the addition of Dana Loesch to the lineup as well to enhance the rebrand further as the station begins a new chapter as it provides news/talk to the residents.
