THE SECOND HOUR OF THE TODD STARNES SHOW

1:05 Defending The Speech You Don’t Like! Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell issued a statement following Facebook, Apple and Spotify removing “The Alex Jones Show” and other InfoWars content. In the statement Bozell said, ““I don’t support Alex Jones and what InfoWars produces. He’s not a conservative. However, banning him and his outlet is wrong. It’s not just a slippery slope, it’s a dangerous cliff that these social media companies are jumping off to satisfy CNN and other liberal outlets.” Shouldn’t so-called “free speech advocates” defend what they DON’T like as much as they like?

12:05Too Close To Call? Buoyed by a dramatic last-minute rally by President Trump, Republican State Sen. Troy Balderson appeared to be inching closer to beating back a challenge by insurgent Democrat Danny O’Connor in Ohio’s special election for a vacant House seat Tuesday, but it’s still too close to call! Trump-backed Kris Kobach leads Kansas primary by slim margin in unofficial count, but it’s too close to call! So is there an enthusiasm gap in the Republican party?

12:35 – Fighting Facebook Bans! Facebook lifted Tuesday its block on Republican Elizabeth Heng’s campaign ad, but the California congressional candidate said the company still owes her a public apology. “I’m deeply disappointed that Facebook would not give me a public apology for targeting a conservative candidate for Congress,” she said in a statement. “It took them 5 days and an immense amount of pressure before they ‘realized’ that they deliberately blocked my history and my story.” Is this the first victory for conservatives in the war on free speech?

GUEST – Elizabeth Heng, GOP candidate for Congress in California’s Sixteenth District
