A talk-radio network that features conservative luminaries such as Mark Levin, Ben Shapiro, and Dan Bongino has allegedly threatened to fire anyone who continues to question the outcome of Election 2020.

In an internal memo from Cumulus Media and its syndication entity Westwood One, the executive vice president of content purportedly wrote that “We need to help induce national calm NOW,” the Washington Post reported.

The memo supposedly continued that 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.’ If you transgress this policy, you can expect to separate from the company immediately.”

Parenthetically, TV fans may remember that “You’re fired” was Donald Trump’s signature catchphrase when he hosted The Apprentice and the Celebrity Apprentice reality shows.

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.”

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.

Cumulus owns 400-plus radio stations, many of which operate under the talk format, with both national and local hosts. “Rather than a medium of freethinking individuals expressing passionately held beliefs, the memo reminds that hosts are subject to corporate mandates and control,” the Post observed.
