The midterm elections are still months away; however, The New York Times reports that around conservative radio shows, they’re declaring that the fix is in and that the Democratic Party intends to cheat. 

Carol Ross, host of “The Ross Report,” asked how Democrats could win a presidential election again following a turbulent few years in power. “They’re going to have to cheat again,” she said. “You know that. There will be rampant cheating.”

Also, another station sharing similar points that Democrats will rig the elections this year is South Carolina’s Charlie James, a host on 106.3 WORD, read from a blog post arguing that “the Democrats are going to lose a majority during the midterm elections unless they’re able to cheat in a massive wide-scale way.”

The newspaper spotlights how the loudest and most constant booster of these unfounded election fraud claims has been talk radio. Furthermore, the Times says that mentions of “Democrats cheating” and matching ideas were expanded more than 5,000 times on syndicated radio shows and local broadcasts this year. 

“Liberals or even most moderates never listen to it; they don’t pay attention to it, they don’t see it, they don’t hear it,” said Lewis A. Friedland, a professor who studies radio at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. “So you don’t know it exists; you don’t know how widespread and how powerful it really is.”

Some radio networks cracked down on election fraud claims after the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, so it will be interesting to see if there’s any fallout following this year’s elections.

Jesse Kelly: Media Reported ‘Outright Lie’ About Donald Trump’s Passports

“The FBI — somebody at the FBI/DOJ — gets ahold of their media friends. ‘Let me send a quick text message. No we didn’t, he’s lying!’ Media immediately begins to run with the story.”

During his Tuesday edition of I’m Right with Jesse Kelly, Kelly said the media, in collusion with the FBI reported “outright lies” about whether or not the Bureau had taken former President Donald Trump’s passports during their raid on his Mar-a-Lago residence.

“They took Trump’s passports. Not only did they take Trump’s passports, the media ran with the story that they didn’t take Trump’s passports,” Kelly said. “But wait there’s more. We now have confirmation, courtesy of the release from Trump, that the FBI not only did take the Trump passports they are now giving him a place and a time to go pick up the passports saying ‘Whoopsie. It was a mistake’.

“But let’s focus on the media part here really quickly. Trump comes out and says ‘The FBI took my passports’. The FBI — somebody at the FBI/DOJ (Department of Justice) — gets ahold of their media friends. ‘Let me send a quick text message. No we didn’t, he’s lying!’ Media immediately begins to run with the story. Pushing an outright lie before any confirmation and then it turns out, once again, Trump was right all along.

The Jesse Kelly Show host then went on to say the FBI works other avenues to build a narrative based on falsehoods.

“You see, we have a system completely built on lies. And this is the problem. It’s way beyond the DOJ and FBI. The DOJ (and) FBI, they work with the media, they work with the entertainment system, they work with the politicians. Everyone works together to constantly push lies on you and me.”

Kelly previously said he “wouldn’t believe a single word” of what the FBI or media reported about the raid on Mar-a-Lago, noting he will probably believe any evidence found was planted or is being fabricated.

“That’s not me being a cynic. You can’t lie to me time and time and time and time and time again and then come to me and say ‘Hey, I have something. You gotta believe me’. That’s not how that works.”

Los Angeles radio hosts John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou reacted Monday to a climate change article printed in the New York Times which describes a mega storm that could last for a month.

The KFI Radio hosts described the article written by Raymond Zhong as an “odd story.” 

“When I saw it on the front page of the actual printed paper, I was like we are being hit over the head with a drought,” said Chiampou. “Now you’re telling us that we’re going to drown?” 

Zhong wrote that a storm of this magnitude could cause more economic damage than a massive earthquake. 

Kobylt pointed out that the same report was published in the Los Angeles Times

“They (media) really go for these frightening stories so they can continue pushing their global warming obsession,” he added. 

The report states that the amount of rain predicted during this mega storm could test the levees, dams, and rivers in the state’s systems. 

John and Ken suggested that the New York Times may have received federal grant money to research this report. 

“From what I have read, if you’re doing climate research you aren’t allowed to research anything other than global warming, climate change disaster,” Kobylt said. “If you do any research that pushes back on what the cult says, then you are out of business.”

Pittsburgh radio personality Kevin Battle announced that Audacy-owned KDKA NewsRadio unexpectedly terminated his contract Tuesday. Battle shared the news on Facebook, stating that “evolving business situations” prompted the cut.

“It has been an absolute thrill and honor to be able to return to Pittsburgh to work at the legendary KDKA-AM/FM and with the professionals who make it sound great – especially our producer, Rob Graner,” Battle said.

Last year, Battle told Barrett News Media that he became involved in the news/talk format after a stint at a Baltimore sports station came to an end.

“I started selling motorcycles part-time and then I landed a part-time job at WNEW 99.1 FM in Washington D.C. After a year, somebody told me about a position in New York at Fox News Radio,” he said at the time.

A native Pittsburgher, Battle graduated from nearby Clarion University.

“I will be forever grateful to those of you who chose to tune in to the show each morning,” he said. “It really means so much to me that you spent your time listening and sharing your busy day with us. Thank YOU! I will miss you all.”
