UFC President Dana White jumped to the defense of former President Donald Trump while criticizing Big Tech for its continued censorship practices.

White appeared on Logan Paul’s podcast Impaulsive Tuesday where he weighed in on the mainstream media and First Amendment rights.

YouTube recently removed President Donald Trump‘s episode of the viral prank group NELK’S podcast. “The fact that Trump’s podcast with Full Send got taken down is f***ing disgusting and more importantly it’s scary. Very f***ing scary!”

Co-host Mike Majlak said the podcast was going to be removed “no matter what” citing Trump as a political figure. “That political figure was the 45th President of the f***ing United States! … You keep talking like he’s Alex Jones! He’s f***ing president of the United States!” White said.

In 2016, White endorsed Trump during a speech at the Republican National Convention.

“This world that we live in, we’re all becoming so dependent on social media … Everybody’s worst f*ing nightmare is that your s**t gets taken down! … You have to start looking at the consequences of something like the Full Send podcast being taken down.”

A new study from Advertiser Perceptions shows that radio advertisers and agencies would pay a premium to see their commercials synced with in-dash visuals on car radios.

In 2021, media agencies and marketers said they were “very familiar” with in-car radio display technologies. In 2024, that figure has risen to 33%, with another 33% saying they were “somewhat familiar.”

In total, 80% of advertisers claimed they were interested in in-dash visual ads. In 2021, only 64% of respondents answered similarly.

When asked “How much on top of a typical AM/FM radio buy would you be willing to invest in this new in-car visual display capability?” the average advertiser claimed they would be willing to increase their budget by 16% in the latest version of the study.

That figure was 14% in both 2022 and 2023, and was 12% in 2021.

Median Age of Podcast Users Nearly 30 Years Younger Than Cable TV

“The ascent of podcasting signals a shift towards on-demand content consumption that aligns with the lifestyles and preferences of younger generations.”

It is no secret that cable TV has seen the age of its viewers continue to rise. But the entire picture is coming into view when juxtaposed against other mediums like radio and podcast users.

A new report from Amplifi Media shows that the median age of cable news viewers is 70. MSNBC is 70, Fox News is 69, and CNN is 67. That median age means that more than half the viewers are actually older than 70 years old.

Network television isn’t a much brighter picture. In primetime, the median age is 64. FOX has the youngest number at 49.5.

However, the median age of podcast consumers comes in at 34.

Steve Goldstein, Founder and CEO of Amplifi Media, believes the drastically younger demographics of the medium make it an ideal platform for advertisers.

“The ascent of podcasting signals a shift towards on-demand content consumption that aligns with the lifestyles and preferences of younger generations,” wrote Goldstein. “We live in an on-demand world, and while other media are adjusting (think streaming apps and YouTube), podcasting has three not-so-secret ingredients that traditional media struggle to match: intimacy, flexibility, and loyalty, which makes podcasting an ideal platform for engaging storytelling, niche topics, and fresh takes.”
