Bill O’Reilly: News Media ‘Rife With Incompetence and Corruption’

“No American industry is more troubled than journalism media. It is now rife with incompetence and corruption,” said O’Reilly.

Bill O’Reilly spent a portion of The O’Reilly Update Monday railing against what he calls the “journalistic dereliction” seen after the coverage of the FBI’s raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home.

“No American industry is more troubled than journalism media. It is now rife with incompetence and corruption,” said O’Reilly. “A largely destructive force that has betrayed its obligation; to accurately inform Americans about events of importance. The federal raid on the President’s home is an example of journalistic dereliction. Here, we have the most important FBI action in history because of its high worldwide profile and constitutional obligation. You’ve got to follow the rules. Yet the reporting on the event has been shoddy, to say the least.”

After noting, in his estimation, there are only two outcomes to the story, O’Reilly questioned the validity of media reports on the story as questionable at best.

“If you read newspaper columns or watch TV news, you get a steady stream of ideological speculation. ‘Maybe this happened’. ‘Could be that’. ‘An anonymous source told me’. Garbage in, garbage out.

“No matter how preposterous all this ‘might’, ‘maybe’, ‘could have happened’ bilge is, the news agencies know most will forget about it when another inevitable story washes up on the beach. And in the end, it is the American people who are really getting robbed here. In the interest of true freedom, the founders wanted an honest, responsible press. They provided legal protections to ensure the flow of information without government interference. They understood that a free people must have honest information in order to select worthy leaders at the ballot box. But in today’s America, that founding wish has been eviscerated by corporations that control the information business. And there is no maybe about that.”

Howie Carr: Liberal Media ‘Simply Won’t Discuss’ Elon Musk’s ‘Twitter Files’

“As expected, Democrat operatives with a press pass are taking the easy way out. They simply won’t discuss it.”

Elon Musk released documents alleging collusion between his newly purchased social media platform — Twitter — and officials with the Presidential campaign of now-President Joe Biden to suppress unfavorable tweets in regards to the President’s son, Hunter, and his laptop. Radio host Howie Carr said the files break up arguments made by media members for years.

Calling it the “Friday news dump of the century”, Carr lamented the lack of coverage given to the release of the documents.

“Elon Musk’s ‘Twitter Files’ dismantles years of the fake news narrative,” Carr said. “The ‘laptop from hell’ is real and the Russia hoax was just that, a hoax. As expected, Democrat operatives with a press pass are taking the easy way out. They simply won’t discuss it. The few that dare bring it up are trying to label it a ‘nothingburger’. A ‘snoozefest’. Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.

“For instance, CNN’s Christine Romans — one of the lucky ones that didn’t get the boot last week — wants us to know how dopey and boring the whole story is,” Carr said before playing a clip of Romans saying former President Donald Trump wants to “throw out” the constitution because of alleged collusion between “big tech” and the government.

“Christine and her fellow travelers in the media can’t handle the truth. We can see for ourselves what the comrades handled at the old platform.”

Carr then played a clip of Romans saying The Poynter Institute saying the “Twitter Files” should be filed under “M for meh”.

“I have a better idea,” Carr countered. “Let’s file this one under M for mischievous, meddlesome, and misconduct.”

There will be a new voice that listeners will hear on “The Ramsey Show” as the show’s host, Dave Ramsey, welcomes Jade Warshaw, who joins the program as a personality. 

“I’m excited to announce @JadeWarshaw as a BRAND NEW Ramsey Personality!” Ramsey said on Twitter Tuesday. 

“You will be seeing a lot more of her in the coming weeks. Tune into The Ramsey Show [Tuesday] to hear more about Jade and her story. Welcome to the crew, Jade!!”

Ramsey adding a new personality comes on the heels of the radio host telling stations they must know how to sell and to whom in an inflationary economy.

“Every budget that everybody that’s possibly going to buy an ad from any of us is getting tighter and tighter,” Ramsey said (h/t Inside Radio). “They’re looking for anything that is superfluous, anything that is extra, any fat, anything that’s not ROI-ing.”
