  • At the Podcast Movement trade show last month, Ben Shapiro, co-founder of The Daily Wire, showed up at the company’s booth and greeted fans.
  • Left-wing podcasters lashed out, tweeting that Shapiro’s mere presence at the event had done them “harm.”
  • In response, media giant Cumulus, with owns more than 400 radio stations and syndicates Shapiro’s show, cut ties with Podcast Movement in a very public manner.
  • “At Cumulus Media, our tenet is that Every Voice Matters and we support conferences and trade events where differing political viewpoints can be expressed and received with respect,” the company said in a statement. “As such, we were dismayed and disappointed by Podcast Movement’s handling of the reaction to our partner, top podcaster, and conservative talk leader Ben Shapiro’s mere presence at Podcast Movement.”
