Should companies mandate their employees be vaccinated? Conservative News Commentator and Fox News host Dan Dan Boningo says ‘No’ and drew a line in the sand on the matter in September.
At the time, Town Hall noted that Fox’s parent company, Cumulus Media, ordered employees to be vaccinated by Sept. 27. Boningo complied but protested the order and stepped away from the microphone for two weeks to show solidarity with those who chose not to be vaccinated.
“I’m not really happy with the company I work with right here,” Bongino said after returning to his highly rated show in November. “I believe these vaccine mandates are unethical. I believe they’re immoral. I believe they don’t take into account the science of natural immunity due to a prior infection. I believe they’re broad-based and don’t take into account an individual’s circumstances of why they may or may not want to take a vaccine. And they’re antithetical to everything I believe in.”
RTM reported on the row between Bongino and Cumulus in November.
For months there has been an uneasy peace between Bongino and Cumulus Media administrators. Bongino is still on the air, and the company mandate is still in place. Bongino described the situation as a “stalemate.”
The Conservative Brief reports that last week, Washington Post reporter Jeremy Barr stirred things up again by writing a piece that questioned Bongino’s integrity and his “threatened…break with Cumulus over the company’s vaccine mandate.”
Barr wrote: “A lot has happened since then, but not much has changed for Bongino and his bosses. He is still hosting the same show, even though Cumulus Media does not appear to have changed its mandate. That’s led some radio hosts and industry observers to question Bongino’s commitment to his ultimatum. Talk radio historian Brian Rosenwald said “there was a stunt element to it.”
Bongino, seldom at a loss for words, fired back and sent a bombastic email to Barr.
Barr decided the professional thing to do is post a copy of the email on Twitter:
“Are you a dips*** all the time, or just on weekdays? Do you even listen to my show where I explained what’s going on? Or is your oddly shaped head so far up your ass that you can’t hear? Given that you’re a chump, and a coward, who has never stood for a single thing in your entire sorry life, I’m not surprised you left out all of the relevant details of the story. Lose my email, and don’t bother contacting me again…”
Since everyone is talking about @eosnos’ excellent profile of Dan Bongino, I wanted to share an email that Dan sent me after I published a story last week (featuring his input) about his pledge to quit his Cumulus Media radio show: https://t.co/YQOjrCNh4G pic.twitter.com/ZuSARjICqu

In November, Borgino clarified that he is not an anti-vaxer but believes government-mandated vaccinations are a grave infringement of personal rights and liberties.
According to the Conservative Brief, his on-air comments in November regarding government overreach include:
“You get your power from us. It’s consent of the governed. It’s the power of the people. We give you authority. You don’t give us a damn thing!”
Suggesting the best path forward, Bongino said to his listeners: “But you know what’s going to fix this? [We must]…understand the fact that this is [our] country, not theirs. We outnumber them. The consent of the governed matters and we [can] revoke our consent.”
This story comes as a New York Times editor, age 49, suffered a heart attack and died one day after reporting he received a COVID-19 vaccination, and Truth11.com links a “5-fold increase in sudden cardiac deaths of FIFA players in 2021.”
But as the number of VAERS-reported adverse reactions to COVID-19 vaccinations increase, so does the administration’s push for vaccine mandates.
This has promoted a coalition of State Attorneys Generals to take the matter to court.
CNN reports that the Biden administration lost three major court battles regarding vaccine mandates in Federal Courts in the last month. CNBC reports that the U.S. Supreme Court will take up the matter on Jan. 7.
Vaccine mandates have had a profound impact on the country. Since November, thousands of health care workers, educators, and first responders have been terminated. Now, there are increasing reports of worker shortages and compromised services. Few are surprised.
