Last week, a radio executive at Atlanta-based Cumulus Media reportedly sent a memo telling its talk show hosts to stop spreading rhetoric about a stolen election or face termination.
“We need to help induce national calm NOW,” Brian Philips, executive vice president of content for Cumulus, wrote in an internal memo after a mob attacked the national Capitol building, first reported by Inside Music Media.
The company “will not tolerate any suggestion that the election has not ended. The election has been resolved, and there are no alternate acceptable ‘paths,’” the memo said. “If you transgress this policy, you can expect to separate from the company immediately.”
Legal scholar Mark Levin has repeatedly railed against Democrat officials in key battleground states who he insists unconstitutionally watered-down ballot verification procedures without obtaining approval from state legislatures, which resulted in alleged rampant irregularities and statistical anomalies.

The corporate media has adopted the mantra there is no evidence that “widespread” fraud occurred in the contest between Trump and Biden. For the most part, the court system was unwilling to examine the substance of the allegations, however.
If this memo is legit, Cumulus appears to be another corporation that feels it has to protect its brand and placate advertisers and left-wing activists after a mob stormed the U.S. Capitol on January 6, which prompted universal condemnation.
Levin has disputed the authenticity of the Cumulus memo, however, Newsbusters reported. “I never received that memo, and my crew never received that memo. This story is done by a reporter who has never spoken to me – ever.”
If the memo showed up in his inbox, “I would make sure the entire nation would hear about it…I would like a correction and an apology from the Post, but I won’t hold my breath,” Levin added.
In chiding a Bloomberg reporter for propagating what appears to be fake news, Shapiro producer Jeremy Boreing also chimed in: “Cumulus is not Ben’s employer and hasn’t told Ben jack sh*t about what he can or cannot say on air. Also, Ben never said the election was stolen.”
Cumulus is not Ben’s employer and hasn’t told Ben jack shit about what he can or cannot say on air.
Also, Ben never said the election was stolen.
That’s at least three falsehoods in 280 characters or less, but pretty good journalisming otherwise. https://t.co/5h0VASqfHZ

As yet, Dan Bongino hasn’t commented on social media about the purported internal memo. He no longer is on Twitter, and Parler — in which he has an ownership stake — has been de-platformed by Google, Apple, and Amazon as Silicon Valley.
Entirely separate from and unrelated to the Cumulus story, journalists Glenn Greenwald and Michael Tracey, members of an exclusive group of intellectually honest progressives, have repeatedly decried corporate censorship generally.
