Yesterday, NewsNation announced Markie Martin had been promoted to co-anchor of the network’s Morning in America program, which has been extended to four hours. With that extension comes the cancellation of Early Morning, leaving anchor Mitch Carr without a home.

In a LinkedIn post, Carr shared that with the network expanding its morning show, he would be departing.

“Bad news about the news: NewsNation has made the decision to cancel Early Morning. I appreciate the opportunity,” Carr wrote. “And if you need a bilingual anchor or host with 14 years in the business across day parts with large local market and national cable news experience as well, I will be available.”

Carr had anchored the show since June 2022. He joined NewsNation after previously working as an anchor at 12News in Phoenix.

Former President Donald Trump will again skip the Republican debate, which NewsNation is hosting next week. However, he will still be on television, just in another capacity.

According to Deadline, Trump will participate in a Fox News town hall on Tuesday, one night before the next Republican debate. The event will be in Davenport, IA, at 9 p.m. ET.

Furthermore, Sean Hannity, who is coming off moderating the debate between California Governor Gavin Newsom and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, will be hosting the pre-taped event.

Meanwhile, the other Republican candidates will be at the Frank Moody Music Building in Tuscaloosa, AL, for the debate, with Elizabeth Vargas, Megyn Kelly, and Eliana Johnson serving as moderators.

Nikki Haley, DeSantis, and Vivek Ramaswamy are expected to participate in the event, but it remains uncertain whether Chris Christie will meet the qualifications to attend.

NewsNation’s Chris Cuomo and Dan Abrams Spar Over Mediaite Story

“You don’t call when someone makes a comment on their show. You don’t have to say, ‘Did you say it?’ You know they said it.”

NewsNation hosts Chris Cuomo and Dan Abrams got into a spar on Thursday. The reason for the sparring was due to Mediaite, a website that Abrams owns, for factually reporting on his own words.

Chris Cuomo stated he’d consider voting for former President Donald Trump because he’s open to voting for anyone. However, he had an issue with Mediaite leaving out key context for his remarks.

“Your outlet, and a lot of other ones, did what you often criticize, which is they didn’t contact me,” Cuomo told Abrams. “They didn’t want context.”

Abrams quickly pushed back, saying that Mediaite did not need to contact him over his comments.

“Wait, why do they need to contact you?” Abrams said. “What is there to contact you about? You said what you said in the interview. It speaks for itself. What do they have to contact you about?”

Cuomo then responded, telling Abrams that any credible reporter would be asking follow-up questions to ensure they had context for the comments.

“When you are going to cover what somebody said, you call if you’re a responsible reporter and say, ‘Hey, did you say this? And what did you mean when you said this?’” Cuomo added. 

Again, Abrams defended Mediaite and stated that they did not need to offer follow-up questions to Cuomo’s remarks. 

“What do you mean, ‘Did you do this?’ You’re not denying you said it,” Abrams told Cuomo. “You don’t call when someone makes a comment on their show. You don’t have to say, ‘Did you say it?’ You know they said it.”

Tucker Carlson Quietly Steps Down from Board of The Daily Caller

“His board term was up and he’s busy with his new projects.”

The Daily Beast reported Thursday that former Fox News host Tucker Carlson quietly stepped down from the board of The Daily Caller. Carlson co-founded the media organization in 2011 and has held a chair position for over a decade.

Nonetheless, citing an unreported tax filing, the report notes that Carlson disappeared from the board of The Daily Caller News Foundation in 2022. Still, the precise timing is unclear.

Carlson did not comment on his removal from the board but attempted to diminish The Daily Beast and the reporter.

“You’re still working for The Daily Beast? How old are you?” Carlson asked. 

Tucker Carlson and The Daily Caller had kept the news hidden until recently. The nonprofit submitted its annual registration with the state on December 7, 2022, and Carlson’s name appeared as a director. 

The nonprofit did not include his name in the annual registration they filed earlier this month. Additionally, on their September 2022 tax return, they omitted to list him as a board member.

Neil Patel, co-founder and chairperson of The Daily Caller, has been serving on the board with Carlson since the beginning. He expressed in a statement to The Daily Beast that Carlson was too busy for his five-hour-a-week board position and had reached his term limit without providing any additional explanation.

“We love Tucker,” the statement said. “He’s our founder. His board term was up and he’s busy with his new projects, so we moved him to an honorary role.”
