Brooklyn Nets basketball star Kyrie Irving angered many people in New York’s Jewish community recently when he tweeted a link to a movie that’s under fire for its antisemitic rhetoric.
Rosenberg told Kelly that he felt like she was defending Irving during her recent conversation with Jason Whitlock.
“We were drawing a distinction, I think he (Whitlock) was drawing a distinction, and I accepted his distinction between Kyrie and Kanye,” Kelly said. “Kanye has been out there, and Jason initially defended him and sort of said he had some inarticulate tweets.”
Kelly told Rosenberg that she feels Kanye has gone too far with his antisemitic speech. On the other hand, Irving is more than likely guilty of poor judgment than anything else.
“I accepted Jason’s position that Kyrie is in a different camp. What he did was tweet out, without comment, a link to this video that I haven’t seen, nor do I think anybody that’s commenting on his tweet has seen,” she said.

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.”
