Former Trump Adviser Steve Cortes Is Departing Newsmax

According to The Daily Beast, there have been issues between both parties, and the company’s latest vaccine mandate was the final straw

Former Trump Campaign advisor Steve Cortes is departing Newsmax as he’ll be hosting his final show this week. 

According to The Daily Beast, there have been issues between both parties, and the company’s latest vaccine mandate was the final straw. Earlier this month, Cortes tweeted out that he would not comply with any company enforcing these mandates. 

“I will not comply w/ any organization’s attempt to enforce Biden’s capricious & unscientific Medical Apartheid mandate,” Cortes tweeted

“I will not be forced into the injection, nor will I disclose my vaccination status. No one should be pressured to choose between medical privacy & their job.”

The report also details the reason for the friction between these two sides is due to the provocative and inflammatory comments that Cortes is known for making, which is why a staffer on the network stated, “he’s on a delay. Can’t trust him.”

However, another staffer states that Cortes’ departure has nothing to do with the company’s vaccine mandate; it’s because of his show ratings. “The ratings for [the Cortes] show suck,” the Newsmax staffer said. “He still insists the election was stolen.”

Cortes’ decision to leave comes after taking over the co-host role of the weeknight 9 p.m. ET show with former One America News correspondent Jenn Pellegrino six months ago.

UTA Talent Agency Drops Journalist Lara Logan

The former “60 minutes” correspondent compared Dr. Anthony Fauci to Dr. Josef Mengele, the Nazi doctor who performed cruel medical experiments on Jewish prisoners.

Mediaite reports that Lara Logan has been dropped by her talent agency UTA in the fallout regarding comments she made during a guest appearance on Fox News in late November. 

The former “60 minutes” correspondent compared Dr. Anthony Fauci to Dr. Josef Mengele, the Nazi doctor who performed cruel medical experiments on Jewish prisoners.

“This is what people say to me, that he doesn’t represent science to them. He represents Josef Mengele. The Nazi doctor who did experiments on Jews during the Second World War and in the concentration camps,” Logan said. 

UTA chief communications officer Seth Oster confirmed the agency severed ties with Logan several weeks ago. Additionally, a UTA insider corroborated to Mediaite that she was let go over her “highly offensive” and “unacceptable” remarks, which sparked anger within the agency.

Fox News never employed Logan, but she did host a show on their streaming platform on Fox Nation (“Lara Logan Has No Agenda”) and appeared regularly on the cable news network as an unpaid guest.

However, since those comments, Logan has disappeared from the air at Fox News and hasn’t been booked since.
