Lars Larson Critical of Sidney Powell’s Comments

Larson’s comment came after Powell urged conservative voters to boycott the Senate run-off elections in Georgia, which will decide the balance of power in the legislature’s upper chamber.

It’s not often that a conservative radio host openly criticizes another conservative who supports President Trump. But Lars Larson, host of The Lars Larson Show on KXL in Portland, Oregon, did just that Thursday night when he called President Trump lawyer and ally Sidney Powell “crazy”.  Larson’s comment came after Powell urged conservative voters to boycott the Senate run-off elections in Georgia, which will decide the balance of power in the legislature’s upper chamber.

“I very much admire Sidney Powell and the work she has done on behalf of the President on a clearly fraudulent election,” Larson said. “But boycotting the elections in Georgia until elections are deemed secure, is a step too far. It’s crazy… It effectively gift wraps the two senate races and the entire Senate to Democrats, as well.”

Larson’s guest, Rick Manning President of American’s For Limited Government, agreed.

“You are not wrong,” Manning said. “If there are systemic problems in voting systems, it’s not going to be fixed in three or four days. We won’t get to the bottom of this until November or March (elections) of 2022. Elector certification is going to be made in the next four days. There isn’t time to mess around with this. She (Powell) just needs to be quiet and let us win the elections in Georgia.”

Larson then offers Powell advice to what she should have said.

“If she had said, number one, we are going to lay the law down on ballot harvesting, and number two, we are going to allow observers in every voting site, that would have an effect. Boycotting the election does not accomplish anything.”

Manning adds that Powell “has been working so hard and is tired, that what sounded like a good idea to say at the time, is not such a good idea now”.

Larson’s and Manning’s criticism of Powell highlight a growing divide among conservatives over President Trump’s refusal to concede the election. Georgia Senatorial candidate David Perdue appeared to privately admit that President-Elect Joe Biden won the election, which caused the hashtag #Perduesaysbidenwon to become a trending topic nationally on Twitter Friday morning. Conversely, President Trump’s staunchest supporters, including many in conservative talk radio, believe the election is fraudulent and they do not consider Mr. Biden as the President-Elect.

The Senate run-off elections in Georgia are set to take place January 5, 2021.

SiriusXM radio host Howard Stern told “Morning Joe’s” Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist in an extensive interview that MSNBC is the network for him regarding cable news consumption. 

Stern stated that he’s a major fan of “Morning Joe” and went the extra mile to say that he and co-host Joe Scarborough share the same political idealogy.

“I watch you guys every morning,” Stern said (h/t Mediaite). “I really enjoy the show. Oddly, I agree politically with almost everything Joe says. I don’t think there’s much difference there.”

The radio host thanked MSNBC for providing him with what he loves: 24/7 news. Additionally, Stern offered a shoutout to network host Symone Sanders and stated he’s no fan of Dateline repeats.

“By the way, I want to give a shoutout to MSNBC,” Stern added. “Thank God you don’t play the old Datelines anymore on the weekends. I like news. I watch this channel exclusively for news. I tune out on the weekend. 

“It’s like all news stuff. I’m watching old Datelines. I like when you guys are onI like news 24/7, and now I find I’m getting it. I get Symone on the weekend. Big fan of hers. Symone coming on strong. What can I tell you? I know the whole lineup.”

Charges against John DePetro have been dismissed as the radio host faced a trespassing charge related to an incident over the summer during a Monday court hearing.

DePetro was arrested in mid-August outside a home on Staples Avenue in Warwick.

Police searched the house several months earlier as part of an investigation into the disappearance of Charlotte Lester, who has been missing for six months.

“I respect our justice system and respect law enforcement, specifically the Warwick PD,” DePetro said on Twitter. “The search for Charlotte Lester continues as I resume efforts searching for answers into her disappearance and holding Mark Perkins accountable for his actions against myself and Ladybug.”

The man who lives there, Mark Perkins, was also arrested the following day after he allegedly charged at DePetro with a lawnmower while DePetro was live-streaming. 

Unlike DePetro, who had his charges dismissed, Perkins still faces an assault charge, according to court records.

Champlin Broadcasting Conservative Talk The Eagle 96.9 KQOB Enid/Oklahoma City and 1640 KZLS Enid will look a little different for its listeners as the station has rebranded.

Rather than calling itself The Eagle 96.9, the radio station will now be known as Freedom 96.9 (h/t Radio Insight). KZLS started simulcasting on KQOB at the beginning of this year after the 96.9 signal was leased to Citadel and Cumulus Media for nineteen years. 

The station features a syndicated lineup, including Hugh Hewitt, Brian Kilmeade, Dan Bongino, Mike Gallagher, Joe Pags, and Bill O’Reilly. Furthermore, with the rebrand possibly comes a new addition.

Freedom 96.9 is teasing the addition of Dana Loesch to the lineup as well to enhance the rebrand further as the station begins a new chapter as it provides news/talk to the residents.
