After 25 years at National Public Radio, Senior Editor Uri Berliner resigned Wednesday following backlash from fellow journalists regarding comments he made about NPR's political agenda. Berliner published an essay in The Free Press earlier this month critiquing his former employer's liberal bias, which allegedly increased following the 2016 election. Before his departure, Berliner was suspended from NPR for failing to secure approval to speak with other news outlets. Senior Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and former member of the Board of Directors at the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, Howard Husock, joins the Rundown to share why people criticize NPR's public funding and why journalists should remain open-minded.

A part of the immigration debate came to an end Wednesday after both articles of impeachment against U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas were voted unconstitutional in the Senate. Illegal migrant encounters reached record levels in 2023, and released migrants are scattered throughout the U.S., with many ending up in self-proclaimed “sanctuary cities.” Denver Mayor Mike Johnston has announced the city plans to spend $90 million to help migrants who come to his city for six months. Within days of the Mayor’s announcement, two counties sued, challenging the state’s sanctuary laws. Douglas County Commissioner George Teal joins the podcast to explain the lawsuit, how Denver has reached “a critical mass point” with their migrant population, and how the issue threatens to spillover and hurt surrounding communities and migrants alike.

Plus, commentary by Jason Rantz, host of “The Jason Rantz Show” and author of "What's Killing America."
