The last redoubt crumbles: Corporate owner censors conservative talk radio

1984 Orwellian censorship that once plagued the Soviet Union has arrived in America.

Already, President Trump and other prominent as well as rank-and-file conservatives have been booted from social media — Twitter, Facebook, ouTube, Instagram, Pinterest, Snapcheck and Redditt — a censorship that is denounced by political leaders of Germany, France, Norway, the EU, Russia, Australia and Mexico.

Not content with that, Big Tech even shut down Parler, the popular conservative version of Twitter. Amazon suspended Parler from its server hosting service over alleged violent and threatening content; Google Play and Apple both  removed Parler from its app stores.

We had thought talk radio would be our last redoubt from the totalitarian Left.

Not so.

Cumulus Media is the second largest (behind iHeartMedia) owner and operator of AM and FM radio stations in the United States, with 416 stations. Cumulus runs Westwood One, one of the largest U.S. radio syndication companies, which employs some of the most popular conservative and Trump-supporting talk-radio hosts, including Mark Levin, Ben Shapiro and Dan Bongino.

On January 6, 2021, reacting to the “storming” of the Capitol building, Cumulus Media executives issued a threat to its on-air personalities that they would be fired if they continue to spread false information about a stolen election.

Rodney Ho reports for The Atlanta-Journal Constitution, Jan. 11, 2021, citing the subscription-based Inside Music Media, that Brian Philips, executive vice president of content for Cumulus, sent a memo telling its talk show hosts to stop spreading rhetoric about a stolen election or face termination.

Philips wrote in an internal memo that “We need to help induce national calm NOW,” and that Cumulus Media “will not tolerate any suggestion that the election has not ended. The election has been resolved, and there are no alternate acceptable ‘paths’. If you transgress this policy, you can expect to separate from the company immediately.”

iHeartMedia which runs rival syndication group Premiere Networks and represents Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, has not commented about whether it has sent any “guidance” to its talk-radio hosts.

In the past 30 years, alleged conservatives —sitting on their blessed assurance— spent a trillion dollars on who-knows-what, including election campaigns for the Bush family. Now they are reaping what they have sown. They could have purchased a whole-entire radio network. They could, also, have protested against conglomeration of radio and TV stations. Rush Limbaugh, who carried water for the Bush family and the republican party, is in the process of dying. EIB would have fallen apart after his departure even in friendly evironment. The stations that carried “conservative” entertainment shows treated their listeners at the top and bottom of the hour to… Read more »

Or worse. I’ve listened to Michael Saul Medved for a couple of decades now, and over the years I have been convinced that his mission is to subvert conservatives. I still listen for the entertainment value, and time to time he’ll have an informative guest. But I take everything with a big grain of salt.

Thank God for FOTM!

WOKI here in Knoxville is the conservative talk show station. They first made us listen to horrible leftist news during every break; now they switched to Faux Nooze, now equally leftist. Republican conservatives need to understand that the globalist, NWO Bushy Boys and RINOs are in bed with the Commies, as are the Democrats.

Well, there’s always Discord and Telegram, favored social media and messaging apps of terrorists the world over.

Will TPTB force us underground, to the Dark Web just to preserve our 1st Amendment rights (to speech AND religion, as well as a right to assemble)?

It’s all about the Benjamins. Or the fear of corporate folks losing them… as whites become the minority.

Are there ANY wealthy Conservatives out there who would be interested in creating a Conservative based Media Corporation,with their OWN resources? Parler,Rumble,all the others who are Conservative,but STILL at the mercy of the Communicrats. They probably wouldn’t CARE,but they WOULD be American HEROES! The ONLY reason we’re in this fix is because the Communicrats have control of EVERYTHING. We need to CHANGE that.

Sheldon Adelson just died, so he’s out. He was listed by Forbes as having a fortune of US$33.5 billion, making him the 28th-richest person in the world and 17th in the Forbes 400…
