  • The Democrat Party is imploding – the media is claiming his press conference was “masterful” while the power-brokers inside the party are executing a quiet coup to get him out no matter what. Will his candidacy survive the weekend?
  • For all the talk of replacing Biden, can they even do that? The Squad breaks down where the war chest goes if Biden drops out
  • Biden campaign goes on offense, spinning a new hoax that Trump is Putin’s “lapdog”, ironically after lying multiple times about Trump’s foreign policy during his press conference from hell
  • Biden’s entire presidency has been a carefully-scripted performance. So much so, that even CNN is admitting it, in a report that reveals even Biden’s aides need to have their questions pre-approved before meetings with him
  • Days away from Trump’s VP announcement, and the RNC speaker line-up is giving a clue as to who it might be
  • Going to amusement parks for the rides is so last year. A report reveals that unique food items are now theme parks’ top pitch to tourists


Chris Plante and his “THE RIGHT SQUAD” are the most interesting, informative, and funny group of talking heads in the world!

It’s a big claim. But it’s true!

Few TV news hosts can claim the bona fides of Chris Plante.

Award-winning news correspondent. Top-rated syndicated radio host. A news analyst grounded in the real world – with a flair for humor.

During the day, Chris hosts the popular “Chris Plante Show” radio program from Washington, D.C.’s powerhouse WMAL – and syndicated by Westwood One across the nation.

And every weekday night he’s at Newsmax’s D.C. studio leading “THE RIGHT SQUAD.”

On his show he demands fact-based news, fact-based opinion, and even fact-based laughs!

For over a decade Chris served as a CNN correspondent reporting from all across the globe while covering the Pentagon, with a focus on the military, national security, and intelligence.

Chris received the Edward R. Murrow Award for his outstanding coverage from the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001.

He is no stranger to war. He covered Operation Desert Shield following Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait, running news pool operations from Saudi Arabia.

In his role as a reporter and producer, Chris has piloted fighter jets, flown off of aircraft carriers, driven nuclear-powered warships, and jumped out of perfectly good airplanes.

He has covered everything from presidential inaugurations to the everyday politics of Washington, D.C., and even street crime.

Old school journalism is in Chris’ blood. The son of famed CBS correspondent Bill Plante, he’s the third generation of his family to thrive in radio and television news.

And he may be the only Washington journalist to have been awarded both the Edward R. Murrow Award and the Reed Irvine Accuracy In Media Award for Excellence in Journalism.

Chris lives in Washington, D.C., with his wife.
