Howard Stern has proclaimed himself to be the “King of all Media” and he has a lot to say about CNN and Donald Trump.
He has laid to rest the fact that he “confirmed” during his radio show that Trump supported the Iraq war.
CNN had a headline titled “Howard Stern Now Confirms,” which led to Stern being confused.
From BizPac Review:
Howard Stern is more than a little miffed with CNN for reporting that he confirmed Donald Trump was in favor of the Iraq War when the GOP nominee said otherwise.
“So, then there was a big screaming headline on CNN — ‘Howard Stern Now Confirms.’ There’s a picture of me and Trump […] I don’t know how CNN came up with that headline,” Stern said.
The shock jock went at CNN on Monday’s episode of “The Howard Stern Show,” insisting he did not confirm that Trump lied about where he stood on the war in Iraq.
“I said nothing new,” Stern said. “And so I emailed Trump and I wanted to explain to him that, uh, that is not what I said.”
“I will say that Donald Trump was one of the best guests we ever had because he would kind of have this stream of consciousness and was not politically correct, and so he always made for a fun guest,” Stern said. “And a lot of his stuff was in the spirit of that.”

And the other day, I was talking to Robin on the air, and I said to her, yeah, you know it was really surreal sorta laying there in bed and watching them mention my name on the debate. And I said, basically for people who might not be aware, I said, yeah, Trump was on our show, and he was talking — I asked him about the Iraq war, and he said that he was for it.
Robin Quivers: ‘Well, I guess you have to be,’ or something like that. It wasn’t like an enthusiastic…
Stern: So, then there was a big screaming headline on CNN — ‘Howard Stern Now Confirms.’ There’s a picture of me and Trump in an adversarial-type situation that…
Quivers: You didn’t confirm anything!
It’s just like the Clinton News Network to fabricate a story, isn’t it?
Stern confirmed nothing.
Nice to see Howard clearing the air.
