    Dan Bongino on Threats to Trump, Biden's Poor Parenting, and the Gift of Failure | Ep. 633

    enSeptember 22, 2023

    Podcast Summary

    • Embracing Failure and the Evolving Media LandscapeFailure can be a gift when used as a learning experience, as discussed in Dan Bongino's new book. The media landscape is changing, with credibility determined by factual information rather than labels.

      Key takeaway from Megyn Kelly's interview with Dan Bongino is the importance of embracing failure and turning it into a gift, as discussed in Bongino's new book. Additionally, they touched upon the evolving media landscape and the changing definition of journalism. Bongino expressed his frustration with being labeled solely as a commentator and not a journalist, despite his extensive research and fact-checking. He argued that the term "journalist" holds less weight in today's media environment and that credibility should be determined by the validity and reliability of information, rather than labels. The interview showcased the dynamic chemistry between the two, making it one of Kelly's favorites since launching her show.

    • The distinction between validity and reliability in journalismValidity refers to truthfulness, while reliability pertains to trustworthiness. Journalism requires both for accurate reporting.

      The reliability and validity of information, be it from a scale or a journalist, are two distinct concepts. While validity refers to the accuracy and truthfulness of the information, reliability pertains to the consistency and trustworthiness of the source. In the context of journalism, valid information can still be unreliable if it's not delivered in an accurate and trustworthy manner. The speaker shared a personal anecdote about her high school transcript, which revealed her areas of strength and weakness, and her goal to become a political journalist. Her guidance counselor's recommendation highlighted her love for writing and politics, but also acknowledged her struggles in math and science. The speaker emphasized that everyone has their niches and strengths, and the term "journalist" has become increasingly meaningless due to the varying levels of reliability and validity in modern media.

    • The shift in power from traditional media to individuals and social mediaThe subscription model for online journalism has made it easier for audiences to disconnect, but also brings benefits like greater reach and loyalty through genuine connections with content creators

      The evolution of journalism and the way people consume news has led to a shift in power from traditional media outlets to individuals and social media platforms. The subscription model for online journalism has made it easier for audiences to disconnect, and the fear of losing subscribers due to controversial content can significantly impact a publication's business. However, this change also brings benefits such as greater reach and loyalty, as audiences feel more connected to content creators they engage with regularly. The relationship between creators and their audience is more genuine and reciprocal, with both parties sharing a mutual enjoyment of the content. This transformation in journalism may not have happened overnight, but it has fundamentally changed the way news is consumed and shared.

    • Engaging with the Audience in Podcasts and YouTubePodcast and YouTube audiences are intelligent, engaged, and quick to correct errors. They bring valuable knowledge and pop culture references, broadening the host's perspective. Authenticity and collaboration are essential for building a following.

      The interaction and instant feedback from the audience in the podcast and YouTube sphere is a valuable asset. Unlike cable news where interaction is limited, podcast and YouTube audiences are intelligent, engaged, and quick to correct any errors. They bring a wealth of knowledge and pop culture references that broaden the host's perspective. While there are some limitations on what can be said on air in cable news, podcasts and YouTube provide more freedom for expression. The host shared personal experiences of learning from the audience and the importance of authenticity in building a following. Despite the competition, the host expressed appreciation for being part of a larger community of content creators, recognizing the value of collaboration and mutual support.

    • Shift from cable news to digital platformsYounger demographic prefers digital content with shorter attention spans and diverse perspectives. New media like Rumble offer a more balanced presentation of various viewpoints.

      The shift from traditional cable news to digital platforms is a significant trend, with new media seeing impressive growth while cable news audiences continue to decline. This was highlighted in the discussion with the comparison of CNN's dismal weekend viewership numbers and the success of independent digital shows. The younger demographic, often referred to as the TikTok generation, is particularly drawn to digital content due to their shorter attention spans and preference for authentic, diverse perspectives. The speakers also emphasized the value of platforms like Rumble and their ability to provide a more balanced presentation of various viewpoints, which sets them apart from traditional cable news. The conversation also touched upon the importance of being invested in the new media space and staying informed about industry developments.

    • Future of Fox News uncertain despite leadership changeDespite Rupert Murdoch's departure, Fox News is expected to maintain its conservative leanings under Lachlan Murdoch's leadership, but the future of the company remains uncertain due to potential sales and ongoing investigations into Elon Musk's actions.

      Despite the change in leadership at News Corp with Rupert Murdoch stepping down and his sons Lachlan and James vying for the position, the nature of Fox News is not expected to change significantly. Lachlan, who is seen as the favored son and has been running the company for some time, is expected to continue the conservative-leaning direction of the network. However, there are speculations that the company might be sold off in the future, with potential buyers like Elon Musk being mentioned. The liquidity of Musk's assets and the ongoing investigations into his actions at Tesla are factors that could impact any potential purchase. Overall, the future of Fox News remains uncertain, but the conservative slant is expected to continue in the near term.

    • Embracing failures as stepping stones to successFailure is not the end, but rather an opportunity to learn and grow, leading to greater achievements

      Failure is not the opposite of success, but rather a necessary part of the journey towards it. Dan Bongino, the author of "The Gift of Failure," shares his personal experiences of how every supposed failure in his life led him to greater successes. From not getting into medical school to running for Congress and starting a podcast, Bongino emphasizes that everyone has the potential to overcome their setbacks and learn valuable lessons. The media landscape, such as Fox News, may no longer be a viable business option for some, but individuals can still find success by embracing their mistakes and using them as stepping stones towards achieving their goals.

    • From Outsider to Success: Embracing Past ExperiencesPast experiences, even painful ones, can be used as motivation to improve and succeed in life

      People's past experiences, no matter how difficult or embarrassing, can shape them into who they become later in life. The speaker shares how they felt like an outsider growing up, from being the worst player on their baseball team to getting bullied and feeling academically inferior. These experiences fueled their desire to improve themselves, whether through physical training in martial arts or intellectual pursuits in education. The vulnerability and determination from these experiences stayed with them, driving them to succeed in their career and become the person they are today. The ability to own and use past weaknesses as motivation is a unique and endearing quality that sets successful people apart. The speaker's journey is a reminder that everyone has the potential to overcome their insecurities and carve out their own place in the world.

    • Balancing wealth and hard work for kidsInstill strong work ethic and financial literacy in kids while providing for them, allowing them to learn valuable life lessons through their own experiences.

      While success and wealth can provide opportunities and security for our children, it's essential to balance it with the importance of hard work and resilience. Growing up in challenging environments has shaped us, and we don't want to shield our kids from experiencing struggles. Shaquille O'Neal's famous quote, "You're not rich. I'm rich. There's a difference," emphasizes the importance of instilling a strong work ethic and financial literacy in our children. As parents, we must find the right balance between providing for our kids and allowing them to learn valuable life lessons through their own experiences.

    • Embrace Failure as a Tool for GrowthFailure is a natural part of the journey to success. Learn from it, don't fear it, and use it as a stepping stone to become a stronger and more resilient person.

      Failure is an essential part of the journey towards success. The speaker shares personal experiences of being bullied and feeling like a failure, but emphasizes that these experiences have shaped them into stronger individuals. They encourage the audience not to fear failure, but to learn from it and use it as a tool for growth. The speaker also criticizes cliches and impractical advice, emphasizing the importance of hard work and resilience in achieving one's goals. A specific story shared is about a baseball game where the speaker, despite their lack of skill, was given the opportunity to pitch and failed miserably. The disappointment they felt in letting down their cousin and role model was a powerful motivator for them to improve and eventually overcome their weaknesses.

    • Prioritize responsibilities over passionsConsider what you can't live without before pursuing passions, and let go of what isn't essential to make room for what truly matters.

      It's essential to prioritize your responsibilities and do what you're good at before pursuing your passions. Dan Bongino shared his experience of wanting to join the SWAT team instead of protecting the president, but realizing he couldn't live without the latter. The same principle applies to difficult choices between two goods, where you should consider which one you cannot live without. The world isn't black and white, and it's crucial to make practical decisions based on your circumstances. Additionally, Bongino emphasized the importance of figuring out what you can live without and letting go of it to make room for what truly matters. This advice may not be cliche, but it's incredibly practical and can help guide you through life's challenging decisions.

    • Trump leads in Iowa caucus and New Hampshire primaryFormer President Trump maintains a significant lead in early primary states despite minimal campaigning, while Biden's approval ratings are low and there are concerns about potential violent protests if Trump wins in 2022.

      According to recent polls, former President Donald Trump is currently leading in both the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire primary with significant margins. Trump's dominance in these early primary states is noteworthy as he has not done much campaigning there. His popularity is likely due to his previous presidency and win in Iowa. Trump's numbers in national polls against President Joe Biden are also promising, with Trump leading by 4 points. Biden's approval ratings are low, with only a third of Americans believing he could finish a second term. There are concerns that the left may react negatively if Trump rises to power again, with some groups discussing the possibility of violent protests if Trump were to win the 2022 election. These concerns are not unfounded, as there have been instances of violent protests during the BLM movement and the disputed 2020 election results.

    • Credible threats against Trump's safety ignored by mediaDuring the 2020 election cycle, some high-ranking Democrats encouraged violence and there were credible threats against Trump's safety. The media dismissed these concerns as conspiracy theories, putting Trump and bystanders at risk.

      During the 2020 election cycle, there were credible threats against former President Donald Trump's safety, with some high-ranking Democrats encouraging violent street fights. These threats were not taken lightly by those in the know, including podcast host Dan Bongino, who had warned about them months earlier. Despite this, some in the media dismissed these concerns as conspiracy theories and refused to engage in discussions about the potential danger. This disregard for Trump's safety was highlighted by an incident where Bongino and his wife were verbally and physically threatened while leaving the White House. The left's indifference to these threats was particularly alarming given the violent nature of some protests and the potential for harm to innocent bystanders. The media's refusal to acknowledge the risks and their dismissive attitude towards those raising concerns was a concerning display of bias and disregard for the safety of a former U.S. President.

    • Witnessing the contrasting behaviors of left-wing and right-wing protestersThe speaker shared his experience of protecting two Asian women from harassment during a left-wing protest, expressing concern over the lack of moral compass and empathy, and emphasizing the importance of peaceful coexistence and respectful dialogue.

      The speaker witnessed firsthand the violent and chaotic behavior of left-wing protesters during a political event, which contrasted sharply with the peaceful demonstrations of conservatives. He recounted an incident where two Asian women were surrounded and harassed, and he intervened to protect them. The speaker expressed concern that these protesters lacked an "emergency break" or moral compass, and their actions were not condemned by mainstream media. He also shared a personal story about his own health crisis and the compassionate care he received from a doctor during a difficult time. Despite the challenges, he emphasized the importance of understanding and empathizing with others, and the need for respectful dialogue and peaceful coexistence.

    • Unexpected connections during challenging timesEmpathy and compassion can provide comfort and strength during difficult moments, even through unexpected connections.

      Even in the most challenging and uncertain moments of life, unexpected connections and acts of kindness can provide comfort and strength. The speaker shares his experience of undergoing a risky surgery and the unexpected phone call from a prominent figure, who showed genuine concern and care. Despite the initial shock and disbelief, the conversation between them provided a moment of relief and human connection in a time of need. This story highlights the importance of empathy and compassion, especially during difficult times. It serves as a reminder that even the smallest gestures can make a significant impact on someone's life.

    • Trump's Personal Connection to SupportersDespite disagreements, Trump's personal connection and understanding of supporters contribute to his political success. He values relationships and offers support, focusing on getting things done.

      Despite public perception, Donald Trump's personal connection and understanding of his supporters can be a significant factor in his political success. The speaker shares a personal story of a conversation with Trump during a difficult time, emphasizing Trump's concern for his wellbeing and offering support. The speaker also clarifies that while they may disagree on certain issues, their friendship and loyalty remain unchallenged. Trump's transactional approach to politics, focusing on getting things done, is seen as a compliment rather than an insult. The speaker criticizes the dehumanization of Trump by some and emphasizes the importance of recognizing his humanity and ensuring his safety.

    • Political reasons behind RFK Jr.'s denial of Secret Service detailThe Biden administration denied RFK Jr. a Secret Service detail for financial reasons and to prevent him from projecting power, but private security firms cannot offer the same level of protection

      The decision to deny RFK Jr. a Secret Service detail despite his high polling numbers and family history of assassination is not solely based on a formula or discretion, but also for political reasons. This decision saves the Biden administration money and prevents RFK Jr. from projecting an image of power through the associated perks of having a Secret Service detail, such as expedited airport security and transportation. However, it's important to note that private security firms, while excellent, cannot provide the same level of protection as the Secret Service due to their limited arrest powers and lack of formal agreements with local law enforcement agencies.

    • Radio show discussion on security measures and Hunter Biden allegationsDan Bongino expressed concerns about security measures for prominent figures and criticized Chris Wallace for downplaying evidence against Hunter Biden. He emphasized fact-based reporting and accountability.

      During a discussion on a radio show, Dan Bongino expressed his concern about the security measures in place for prominent figures like Joe Biden and Donald Trump, stating that security companies lack the legal power to ensure their safety like the U.S. Secret Service does. He also criticized journalist Chris Wallace for downplaying the evidence against Hunter Biden and Joe Biden's involvement in alleged corrupt dealings, stating that there is ample evidence beyond a reasonable doubt if this case were to go to trial. Bongino emphasized the importance of fact-based reporting and being accountable for one's actions, especially in the public eye. He also expressed disappointment in Wallace for his role in reporting on the impeachment inquiry, which Bongino believes lacks substance and is a "scandal in American history."

    • Media focus on Biden family scandal distracts from important issuesThe media's obsession with the Biden family scandal distracts from addressing important issues and portrays an inaccurate image of Joe Biden as a loving father.

      Despite having political differences, it's possible to maintain friendships and respect each other's opinions. However, the media's focus on the Biden family scandal, particularly Hunter Biden's past issues with addiction and business dealings, is a distraction from more important issues. The speaker believes that Joe Biden, who was aware of his son's struggles, should have provided better support instead of exposing him to potentially harmful situations. The media's portrayal of Joe Biden as a loving father is inaccurate, as they ignore the potential negative implications of Hunter Biden's actions. The speaker also criticizes the media for not investigating other important issues and instead focusing on sensational stories. Ultimately, the speaker urges for a more nuanced and truthful approach to reporting.

    • Deception and Manipulation: Harmful ConsequencesHonesty, integrity, and accountability are crucial in preventing harm from deception and manipulation, whether it's through personal relationships or journalistic tactics.

      Deception and manipulation, whether it's through grifting or journalistic tactics, can have serious consequences and harm relationships and trust. In the first part of the discussion, a speaker expressed frustration with a family member who is a grifter and sends their son to make money while addicted to drugs. The speaker refuses to support such actions and criticized the family member for being a "sicko" and not a loving dad. In the second part, the topic shifted to an incident involving Dave Portnoy of Barstool Sports and a Washington Post reporter. The speaker praised Portnoy for going on the offensive when he discovered the reporter was trying to pressure his event sponsors with negative information. The speaker criticized the reporter for her tactics and called her out for not acting ethically as a journalist. Overall, the discussion highlighted the importance of honesty, integrity, and accountability in our actions and interactions with others.

    • Power struggles between media giants and independentsMedia giants may target independent voices who challenge their dominant narrative, but fighting back and supporting independent media can help preserve diverse perspectives.

      The power dynamics between large media outlets and smaller, independent entities can lead to targeted campaigns against those who refuse to conform to the dominant narrative. The speaker, a major equity holder in Rumble and a frequent guest on conservative media, discussed the recent controversy surrounding the UK's attempts to demonetize Rumble due to allegations against some of its content creators. He emphasized that the Washington Post's opposition to figures like Dave Portnoy, who is not a conservative, is not based on ideology but rather on the challenge Portnoy poses to their hierarchical power. The speaker encouraged listeners to fight back against such campaigns and shared his own experience of turning the tables on a critic who targeted him online. The conversation also touched on the importance of supporting independent voices and the success of Dan Bongino's new book and Doug Brunn's "The Mysterious Case of Rudolph Diesel."

    Megyn Kelly is joined by Michael Knowles, host of The Daily Wire's "Michael Knowles Show,” to talk about Biden’s “big boy” press conference last night, his confusion about Zelensky and Putin and Trump and Harris, how the elites and establishment want him out but he won't listen, why Biden won't leave the race, how the press conference wasn't bad enough to force him to leave, what the establishment media is focused on now, prominent left-wing elites leaking to the media instead of publicly making a statement urging Biden to step aside, Biden's odd habit of whispering suddenly, and more.

    Megyn Kelly opens the show by discussing the Democrats’ ongoing meltdown and panic over Biden’s debate debacle, Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre’s history of lying and cover-ups, the media suddenly getting mad after years of lies, whether former President Obama is trying to push Biden out behind the scenes, and more. Then Ric Grenell, former acting DNI Director, joins to discuss whether Biden's "big boy" press conference could make or break his candidacy and presidency, Biden’s obvious cognitive decline that the media ignored for so long, defenders arguing criticizing Biden is “ageist and ableist,” if Barack Obama is working behind the scenes to push Biden aside as nominee, how Morning Joe is teasing the way Obama may have orchestrated the George Clooney op-ed, Ezra Klein admitting some on the left don't really believe what they say that Trump is an existential threat to democracy, corporate media shockingly turning on Biden, how journalists have abandoned their duty to be skeptical of power, and more. Then longtime journalist Bill Sammon joins to discuss the historic past two weeks, the calculus Biden is weighing about his political future, what the Democratic party might do moving forward, the stakes in this election, and more.
