SiriusXM radio host Howard Stern has had enough media coverage on the death of Queen Elizabeth II. 

During the Monday edition of SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show, the host slammed news outlets for ditching the story of former President Donald Trump’s classified housing documents at his Florida home to cover the Queen’s death.

“It’s weird traditions and everything. And I’m like, Jesus, enough with the Queen!” Stern said (h/t Mediaite). “I mean, it’s America. We don’t have a queen. 

“I get it. You know, Queen was a nice lady, I guess she was born, you know, my whole life, the Queen, has been the same queen and there’s a tradition there and she did her duty to her country. I get it. I get it. I get it. But we gotta get back to Trump and where those papers are that they found that Mar-A-Lago.”

Stern’s co-host Robin Quivers asked the radio host whether he enjoyed the break from the constant Trump coverage that the news media in the U.S. provides the former presdident. 

“No, it’s like annoying,” Stern said. “It’s like, everyone wants to hear about Trump. Trump 24/7. I mean, he, you know, it’s so weird. I knew Donald for so many years. 

“Not in touch with him now, obviously, but the only thing that I used to say about Donald — the guy just wants to be the focus of attention. He wants the whole world looking at him and the son of a gun — If he didn’t make that happen, it’s unbelievable. He got his wish.”

Vince Coglianese: With Credibility Dwindling, Why Haven’t News Outlets Changed Their Strategies?

“They’re just like the band on the Titanic. They’re just gonna keep playing the same song as the ship goes down.“

With news consumers continuing to lose faith in news outlets, WMAL host Vince Coglianese wonders why there hasn’t been a shift in strategy from some of the organizations that have seen dwindling audiences in recent years.

While discussing the coverage surrounding the trial of former President Donald Trump with NewsBusters Managing Editor Curtis Houck, the guest told Coglianese that NBC Nightly News has had the story as the lead 16 times. When The Vince Coglianese Show host heard that figure, he questioned why news organizations haven’t recognized the loss of credibility from their viewers.

“They’re just like the band on the Titanic. They’re just gonna keep playing the same song as the ship goes down. Why not change strategy? If I was running a news operation — if I was one of the broadcast networks, and I was watching my audience dwindle, and I was thinking of what can I do to change pace here and succeed as a business — I would think maybe start telling the truth would be a good way to do it,” said Coglianese. “Because then people would be like, ‘I have faith in that product,’ and my audience would grow. Maybe that’s an old fashioned notion.”

The criticism from Coglianese about the lack of changes from news media organizations coincides with recent reports that CNN’s primetime ratings have dropped to 30-year lows in the coveted Persons 25-54 demographic. CNN, like many other news outlets, has spent extensive time covering the court proceedings of the former President.

“They put it in a plastic bag and sent it with the typical scrawl somebody would write about how we’re all, whatever.”

The Republican Party Headquarters was evacuated earlier this week when some vials of blood were mailed to the location. SuperTalk 99.7 WTN morning host Dan Mandis shared similar stories.

Mandis, while joined by midday host Chris Hand on Nashville’s Morning News, said earlier in his radio career, someone sent some nefarious items to him at the station.

“What is the worst thing that you’ve received in the mail? Now, I’m going to tell you. I’ll tell you mine and you guys can think. We’ve received excrement,” Mandis shared. “Like a box full of it. Yeah. They put it in a plastic bag and sent it with the typical scrawl somebody would write about how we’re all, whatever.”

Dan Mandis continued by noting that he also had an anthrax scare in the early 2000s when many other entities experienced the same fears.

“When I worked for Dr. Laura, we had a white substance that was sent to the offices. And so the guy who was Dr. Laura’s right-hand man, this poor guy had to strip down,” Mandis shared. “He was in some sort of a circular thing. So he’s inside this circular thing so nobody can see him and they hossed him off. And it turned out to be like flour or something.”

Clay Travis: ‘Knowing That I Control My Own Fate is Incredibly Important to Me’

“I just wanted a place where I could say exactly what I thought and I didn’t have to worry that one morning I was gonna wake up, and find out that I had been fired.”

OutKick founder Clay Travis is mourning the loss of his stepfather-in-law and shared how imperative the man was in helping launch the digital media company that ultimately was purchased by FOX.

Travis detailed how, without the inspiration from his wife’s step-father, he likely never would have started his own company after being let go from various online writing jobs at places like Deadspin, CBS Sports, and AOL FanHouse.

“He told me ‘Hey, you should start your own sports media company.’ I was worried. And this is really the impetus behind why I started OutKick. I just wanted a place where I could say exactly what I thought and I didn’t have to worry that one morning I was gonna wake up, and find out that I had been fired,” said Travis.

He continued by noting that now knowing how strongly he values that quality is directly because of his now-departed father-in-law.

“Knowing that I control my own fate was incredibly important to me. And that was because of those conversations with Larry, why I started OutKick … If you’ve ever watched or read OutKick, I’m not sure — really — that OutKick would have ever existed without Larry.”
