Jack Armstrong: ‘Mainstream Media Doesn’t Realize They’ve Lost The Room’

“You’ve lost at least half the country that tunes out whatever you say. So I don’t know. I don’t know what we do with that going forward.”

The arrest and arraignment of former President Donald Trump last week was the hot-button issue in news radio circles. Armstrong & Getty co-host Jack Armstrong believes there’s an underreported aspect of the story.

While reading a portion of a recent opinion column from lawyer Jonathan Turley, Armstrong argued that the mainstream media has lost the pulse of the American people.

“It’s an indictment of the media. After years of advocacy journalism and biased reporting, the public now tunes out the media,” wrote Turley. “This is a strong indictment troubling allegations of evidence, yet it does not matter because the media long ago lost much of the country with one-sided unrelenting coverage.”

“That is so absolutely true,” Armstrong argued. “That might be the least appreciated major story going on in America. Because the media, the mainstream media, obviously doesn’t know that. The majority report on it. The majority of the mainstream media doesn’t realize they’ve lost the room. As, as Jonathan Turley writes, they’ve lost the room.”

“Well, when you’ve been lied to repeatedly, by the same person or people, what’s your reaction in real life?” Joe Getty agreed. “A little disdain, dislike, ignoring them. Actively looking for reasons to contradict what they say.”

Armstrong argued that polling numbers reveal that there is less trust in the current Department of Justice than there was when Bill Barr was the attorney general, but you’re unlikely to see that figure reported.

“It’s going the other direction people’s trust. But yes, this is why and of course, you’re not going to hear from The Washington Post or ABC This Week, or whatever, because they did it and they’re still doing it. You’ve lost at least half the country that tunes out whatever you say. So I don’t know. I don’t know what we do with that going forward. I don’t know how we have a conversation or vote or what happens.”

After more than a decade, 710 KNUS weekend host Randy Corporan has hosted his last show for the Denver news/talk station.

According to the host, Salem Media Group informed him it would not be renewing his contract late last month.

Corporan told CompleteColorado.com that after the death of his wife in June of last year, he considered ending the show. However, he persisted, commuting an hour and a half one way to continue the show.

He added that since announcing his exit, he has been contacted by “truly conservative outlets” to continue his program, but said he won’t begin a new show until after the 2024 election.

“I want to get the start of my new life going and sort myself out,” he said. “And I want to take care of some personal problems that need to be dealt with.”

Randy Corporan is listed as one of the defendants — along with Salem Media Group, parent company to 710 KNUS — in a defamation lawsuit brought forth by Dominion Voting Systems over what the election machine company calls “false claims of fraud in the 2020 election.”

Civic Media Admits Earl Ingram Interview with President Biden Was Edited At White House’s Request

“Civic Media unequivocally stands by Earl Ingram and his team.”

After the controversy surrounding WURD hosts admitting they were fed questions by the team for President Biden, Civic Media in Milwaukee has admitted a recent interview with the commander-in-chief and Earl Ingram was edited.

The Milwaukee radio host interviewed President Biden on Wednesday, July 3rd before airing it on his morning show the following day.

However, on Monday morning, the company was notified that after the interview, someone affiliated with the Biden campaign asked for edits to the interview, which Ingrahm and his producers enacted.

“Immediately after the phone interview was recorded, the Biden campaign called and asked for two edits to the recording before it aired. Civic Media management immediately undertook an investigation and determined that the production team at the time viewed the edits as non-substantive and broadcast and published the interview with two short segments removed,” the station said in a statement.

The station says that the portions that were edited out of the published interview included Biden’s statement that he has “more Blacks in my administration than any other president, all other presidents combined,” and another that referenced former President Donald Trump called for the hanging of the Central Park Five in the last 1980s.

“With a high-profile interview comes a listener expectation that journalistic interview standards will be applied, even for non-news programming.  We did not meet those expectations. Civic Media disagrees with the team’s judgments in the moment, both with respect to the handling of the interview questions and the decision to edit the interview audio,” the statement from the company continued.

“Civic Media unequivocally stands by Earl Ingram and his team. Earl is an invaluable voice for Milwaukee and Wisconsin, and remains a crucial member of the Civic Media organization. The decision to make the requested edits to the interview was made in good faith. While we disagree with the decision, we stand by our team. This has been a learning experience and we will do better moving forward.”

The admission that the interview was edited comes on the heels of Earl Ingram admitting to ABC News that he — like WURD host Andrea Lawful-Sanders — accepted questions from the Biden White House in exchange for the interview.

After the controversies were uncovered, the Biden campaign and White House has claimed it will no longer suggest questions to potential interviewers.
