Nationally syndicated radio host Glenn Beck said Wednesday that former President Donald Trump was on his best behavior Tuesday while announcing his 2024 Presidential election bid. 

Beck said several mainstream media outlets like the Washington Post, NPR, and CNN wrote disparaging headlines about Trump’s announcement. 

“I thought Donald Trump did the best that he could do last night without firing off any shots,” Beck said. “But it wasn’t enough for the media.” 

“This is from the Washington Post,” he said. “Donald Trump, the twice impeached president who refused to concede defeat and inspired a failed attempt to overturn the 2020 election, culminating in a deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol, officially declared on Tuesday night that he’s running to retake the White House in 2024.” 

Beck said CNN wrote that Trump aims to become only the second commander and chief ever elected to two non-consecutive terms. 

“Trump delivered a relatively subdued speech, rife with exaggerated claims about his four years in office,” Beck said of the CNN piece. “At least at CNN, it took them three paragraphs, where the Washington Post got it all in at one.” 

Steve Burguiere, aka Stu, said media outlets were quick to editorialize Tuesday’s news while reminding readers about Trump’s sorted past in the White House. 

“We all remember the story,” he added. “You don’t need to remind us. They all put it in the headlines.” 

Beck stated that Fox News spent 45 minutes covering Trump’s announcement. CNN devoted 25 minutes of airtime covering the event at Mar-a-Lago. MSNBC did not cover the press conference at all.

    The closing comment in this story is simply incorrect.

    While MSNBC didn’t air the announcement event live, they DID cover the story, mentioning and analyzing it as it happened on Alex Wagner’s program.

    If your point was to say they didn’t air it live, then say that, but don’t say they “did not cover” the event when any objective review of the programming they aired during that hour would clearly demonstrate the opposite.

Various media outlets are facing or going through layoffs as the industry deals with economic uncertainty. CNN is the most prominent to go through with its job cuts, but they’re not alone, as SiriusXM might soon be dealing with this reality.

The satellite radio company is reportedly facing layoffs as it deals with slowing auto sales, the primary source of its subscriber base from its free trial offers, and a potential recession. 

“It may indicate the need for staff reductions,” management said during a town hall meeting (h/t Inside Radio). The company had a workforce of 5,590 employees at the end of 2021. However, the exact number of potential cuts is not known. 

Inside Radio previously reported SiriusXM had produced a 4% year-over-year revenue gain to $2.28 billion in the third quarter. However, Bloomberg points out that the company’s subscriber base is the same as it was three years ago at 40 million. 

NPR recently informed its staffers of their hiring freeze as it looks to cut $10 million from its current fiscal budget due to a $20 million decrease in subscriber revenue without resorting to job layoffs to meet these financial goals.

Turning Point founder Charlie Kirk had an appearance at the University of New Mexico which reportedly sparked violent protests Wednesday.

According to KRQE-TV, police were at the event in riot gear, and things got heated as they tried to move the protesters away from the event.

Kirk joined the “Tucker Carlson Show” Thursday to discuss the incident. He questioned whether the protestors were paid and what they were doing on campus.

“It’s really interesting when you try to show up on a college campus and do an optional, voluntary event and how angry the other side gets,” Kirk said. “This is a very important moment for people to recognize and understand.”

Kirk said that the “radical left” is acting like the same violent extremists that the entire federal government is organized to go after.

“I wonder who is financing the protestors and who is behind this?” Kirk surmised. “This is the third time this semester that an event on this campus had to be canceled or ended abruptly.”

Three people were reportedly detained before being given a summons and escorted off campus.

“I went there on a personal mission,” added Kirk. “I went there to send a message to every one of these people, that we are going to stand for free speech and you are not going to be able to disrupt our events or bully our students.”

CNN announced mass layoffs this week following months of speculation amid big changes in upper management. CEO Chris Licht notified employees by an internal memo stating that paid contributors and an untold number of employees would be impacted. 

WMAL Radio host Vince Coglianese reacted to the changes Thursday. Coglianese suggested that CNN is suffering from an identity crisis. 

“You have to have a clear mission, that’s just a basic principle of the media business,” he said. “You must have a direction and that must be clear to the audience. CNN, which decided it was going to be an entirely anti-Trump network now they appear to be rudderless.” 

On Thursday, CNN announced that it was ceasing live programming on Headline News and that morning anchor Robin Meade had been a casualty of the planned layoffs. 

“At CNN, you have all sorts of people running in different directions,” Coglianese said. “People who think it’s supposed to be a left-wing network, people that think it’s supposed to be a news network. If it’s that confused, it’s going to collapse.”
