Stew Peters, host of the “Patriotically Correct” radio show, slammed a “misleading headline” from Fox News this week that claimed former Obama administration Secret Service agent and current Parler shareholder Dan Bongino is “replacing” the late talk radio icon Rush Limbaugh in the 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. EST time slot.
“I saw a headline yesterday that was a little disturbing to me,” Peters said. “Actually, ‘a little disturbing’ is quite the understatement, I’m gonna go full-blown B.S. on this one. I’m actually extremely insulted by the three sentences they struggled to put together at FoxNews.com, and I’m blown away by the misleading and completely inaccurate article.”
The article in question, titled “Dan Bongino to take over Rush Limbaugh’s radio time slot,” states that Fox News contributor Bongino “will be launching a new radio show during the time slot left vacant by conservative talk radio icon,” and goes on to draw parallels between a health scare Bongino had in 2020 and the invasive lung cancer that took Limbaugh’s life.
“Now, I don’t know if this was just some regurgitated story that was published by Fox after receiving a press release from the Bongino camp, or if this was a real story that Fox may have manufactured on a slow day in the cycle of media, but this is complete garbage,” Peters noted.
Peters added, “Listen folks, I broadcast every day live at 6 p.m. Eastern, but if I move my time slot back a couple of hours, would Fox publish a headline about how my show is replacing Tucker Carlson?”
Despite multiple headlines claiming that Bongino will “replace” Limbaugh, no replacement host has been announced by the Excellence In Broadcasting Network.
After listing several of Bongino’s myriad gaffes and controversies, Peters concluded, “To suggest that someone like [Bongino] would replace a God-fearing Christian behind the golden EIB microphone it totally absurd, and completely incomprehensible. Rush Limbaugh made an entire career out of tactfully and responsibly reporting truth and facts without resorting to elementary schoolboy bullying and disgraceful language.”
