Dan Mandis Believes Talk Radio ‘Has Never Been Extreme’

“Clearly, you listen to talk radio, I work in and listen to talk radio and so we are going to say no, talk radio not only is it not more extreme, I don’t think talk radio has ever been extreme.”

CBS Sunday Morning aired a story over the weekend discussing the polarization of talk radio and how it has played into extremist views in America. SuperTalk 99.7 WTN morning host Dan Mandis took offense to what he saw.

“I love talk radio, you love talk radio, we all love talk radio — except for you hate listeners — but CBS did this segment over the weekend and they started talking about division in America and how polarized America is. They bring on their senior national correspondent, a guy by the name of Jim Axelrod, and he’s there to talk about and report about what is going on with talk radio and how it is sowing division across America.”

“So talk radio is now more extreme according to CBS News. Clearly, you listen to talk radio, I work in and listen to talk radio and so we are going to say no, talk radio not only is it not more extreme, I don’t think talk radio has ever been extreme.”

Mandis then claimed large media companies were proven false on their reporting centered on Donald Trump numerous times, but CBS didn’t cover that.

“Oddly enough, though, CBS in their stellar, cutting edge reporting, didn’t report on any of that. Anybody surprised? They also talk about how, with talk radio, one of the things as they continue to discuss it is they talk about how it is absolutely divisive. Not really mentioning anything about The View or any of these other shows that are always bashing conservatives and Donald Trump. Calling us racists, and Nazis and the rest of it.”

Mandis concluded by saying President Joe Biden and Democrats are more responsible for the division in America than conservative talk radio hosts.

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.
