Steve Malzberg: CNN Playing Down the Matter of Serious Crime

Malzberg said CNN host Brian Stelter is purposely playing down the significance of serious crime for political theater.

RT America host Steve Malzberg said CNN host Brian Stelter is purposely playing down the significance of serious crime for political theater. 

The “Eat the Press” host attacked Stelter and other left-leaning commentators during one of his recent episodes. 

“People are getting stabbed, shot, and killed every day and Stelter mocks the reporting of it!” Exclaimed Malzberg. “Sick, sick, sick, stuff.” 

Malzberg said a newly released Fox News poll found 85% of Americans said their top concern was inflation and high prices above all issues, concerns about crime came in second with 81%. 

“All of this begs the question, Brian, what the hell are you doing?” Malzberg said before playing a clip of last week’s CNN morning show with network law enforcement analyst Michael Fanone.

During his appearance, Fanone discussed several ways in which law enforcement are being unfairly portrayed in the media. Fanone is a former U.S Capitol police officer who was also present during the Jan 6 riots. 

“He (Fanone) is talking about crime in this country,” said Malzberg. “Sounds like he would have made a great guest for Stelter’s show on crime, but apparently he didn’t fit Brian’s agenda. In fact, if Fanone would have said what he said on CNN on Fox, Stelter would have probably played it as an example of the evil Foxiverse.” 

“Eat the Press” is described as a “take-no-prisoners media critique.” Malzberg has hosted shows on Newsmax TV, WABC Radio in NYC, and on WOR Radio, also in NYC. To learn more about his show, click here.

Joe Scarborough Wants Media to Focus on Losses by Donald Trump-backed Politicians

The morning show host added that “two-thirds of Republicans in Pennsylvania voted against Donald Trump.”

MSNBC Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough wants a bigger spotlight from the media on losses than wins of candidates backed by former President Donald Trump. 

Scarborough’s statement comes as multiple Trump-backed candidates lost in primaries on Tuesday, including Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC), Idaho Lt. Gov Janice McGeachin, and candidate for Nebraska governor Charles Herbster, lost.

“Every time a Trump candidate wins, I think the media makes such a huge deal about it,” Scarborough said, per Mediaite. “He picked a crazy governor, gubernatorial candidate, in Pennsylvania, that was on his way to winning anyway, which is why Trump jumped on the bandwagon there.”

The morning show host added that “two-thirds of Republicans in Pennsylvania voted against Donald Trump.”

“So, again, I’m not saying Donald Trump doesn’t have sway in the Republican Party, but I’ll tell you what, it’s nothing like it was in 2020, and I think the media needs to focus more on those massive losses instead of having the headlines about that his endorsement really means something significant,” Scarborough said. “Because I’m not so sure it does this year.”

Dan Abrams Calls NPR’s Mask Report Hotline “Ridiculous”

NPR recently announced a hotline that would allow staffers to report maskless colleagues, leading to the host on “The View” clashing over this issue.

NPR recently announced a hotline that would allow staffers to report maskless colleagues. During a segment on “The View,” the hosts clashed over what the radio station is implementing. 

Co-host Joy Behar kicked off the discussion by stating she would never report a colleague, citing she’s “Italian” and that they “don’t snitch.” However, Sunny Hostin was on the other end, calling the new hotline a good thing. 

“It’s a good thing,” Hostin said, per Mediaite. “We’ve been terrible to each other during this pandemic. So I just think you have this mechanism now where you can just call and snitch and protect yourself as opposed to taking it on yourself.”

Nonetheless, co-host Ana Navarro and guest co-host and Mediaite founder Dan Abrams pushed back at Hostin for her claims. Abrams called the hotline “ridiculous.”

“How do you know it’s not somebody just snitching on somebody they don’t like?” Navarro said. Hostin did push back when pressed by Navarro, saying that it would be up to HR to investigate.  

“We’re at a different point in Covid now,” Abrams added. “We’re not at the point we were two years ago. What if I’m living with someone that’s immunocompromised or my parents and you give it to me and I go home and kill my dad or kill my mom or I kill my husband?”

“It’s not about just following the rules. There are a ton of risks people take every day, right, in going to work, exposing themselves. We’re going to have to live with Covid.”

CNN is saying goodbye to its longtime SVP and editor-in-chief of CNN Digital Worldwide, Meredith Artley, whose departure was announced in a memo to staff that Axios obtained. 

Artley’s departure comes as CNN president Chris Licht begins morphing the cable news channel into his and Warner Bros. Discovery’s into their vision. During her more than 12-year stint with the company, she served as a top executive under former CNN President Jeff Zucker.

“I’m so proud to have played a role in guiding, growing and championing CNN’s journalism across our digital platforms all these years,” Artley said. “There is so much CNN is doing right. How exciting to think about how much farther you will go.”

Furthermore, she became the latest executive to leave the company since the merger was finalized. Longtime CNN digital lead Andrew Morse left last month after directing the efforts at CNN’s now-defunct streaming service CNN+.

According to Axios, Artley was frustrated in the wake of the shakeups occurring at the network. The merger and other corporate issues led to several leadership modifications.
