  1. Supply risk is a recurring problem in the purchasing process. Some of the most prevalent types of risks include market risks, potential frauds, cost, quality, and delivery risks. Your procurement leaders are very concerned about the compliance risks, including those relating to anti-corruption, policy adherence, and others.

  2. As I look at some of these comments I can’t help, but to laugh. The Liberals that leave their uneducated, typical CNN,MSNBC BS talking points are the ones destroying and dividing this country. It doesn’t matter what time of the day if someone was to turn on CNN there’s 4-5 talking heads telling Americans that America is a racist, horrible place to live. Or you have a white host apologizing for being white or a black host saying white people are the biggest threat to the country. I listen to 4 of the top 10 radio hosts on this list EVERYDAY and the reason these host are extremely successful is they tell you up front Here are the facts and tell YOU as a listener to go look them up yourself, don’t just take their word for it. Mark Dice goes to colleges across the country and asks some of the supposed “great minds” of the future questions about current events, but tells them all these great things Democrats have done for our country and they all agree and then he lets them know sorry everything I just mentioned was done by Republicans. And most get so infuriated that they almost instantly change their beliefs because a Republican passed a law or is fighting for a certain rights. So when people try saying it’s Republicans who are dividing the country it’s because they are scared the majority of Americans are waking up to their BS lies about being oppressed and descriminated against. 2017-2018 wasn’t long ago and the facts are there to read, minorities were at the highest level of employment and off welfare since people started taking records on it. So for all you Liberals I’m sorry that in order for you to see a list of the top ANYTHING you have to search for conservative folks. Maybe start asking CNN, MSNBC, ABC,AP, Washington Post, MSM all together, start asking them to stop hiring bigoted, jealous, hateful, host and just read the news. And maybe one day you’ll have your own top 4 or 5 list. Until then MAGA 2022 wave is coming and hopefully the trash gets washed away in the tide.

  3. Talk shows are targeted at multiple audiences, involve experts and non-experts on a specific topic, are host-controlled, are broadcast or recorded in real time, and consist of activities such as discussion, storytelling, confession or testimony.

  4. Talk show hosts urge their audience to take sides on significant social topics, which promotes divisiveness among Americans. They simply worry about achieving good ratings so that their advertisers are satisfied and they can maintain their positions.

  5. If you want to blame someone for the division, you must examine yourself and the people you rely on for information. They are the ones that divide us into categories based on our skin colour, political views and religion preferences.

  6. Talk shows are an excellent alternative for individuals who want to keep up with current happenings in the news and pop culture but don’t want to sit through the serious presentation of traditional news programmes.

  7. It’s amazing that even a sliver of the public discourse that is not Hard LEFT gets so vilified by the Thought Police. Remember, just a few years ago—PreTrump —Leftists denied the MSM had a significant bias. WHAT? That delusional position has been utterly proven to be a complete lie. MSMedia bias is “off the charts” and now everyone knows it. I guess these Leftist Extremists won’t be satisfied until every voice against their extreme agenda is silenced.

  8. A Message for News Outlets and BLM Peaceful Protestors.
    The BLM have done their job highlighting the cases where a black man who has made the choices in his life that have contributed to an incident where a policeman makes a choice as he tries to bring that individual in to account for those choices.. Those cases are now in the judicial system and justice one way or the other will be decided.

    While the BLM movement has the eyes and ears of the nation, it is time for the peaceful protestors to turn their attention to the Black lives that matter the most . the children being killed by Black men who hate other black men so much they try to kill each other and instead kill a Black child. These are not isolated cases.
    Most of the time these children and their families will never see justice. The killers are out there.
    From my ability to conduct limited research. I have the names of nine children killed in St. Louis, Mo. killed in 1919 and the names of 6 children killed in 2020 living in different cities in the US. I am sure there is a national data base with more.
    The BLM peaceful protestors need to take their bullhorns to the neighborhoods where these children were killed and blast a message, “Black children’s lives matter. We will find you. Before we do, you had better turn yourself in .”
    La Bron James needs to take himself to the parents of these children and let them describe for him what fear really is. They and their neighbors cannot help in bringing their child’s killer to justice for FEAR of being killed.
    Al Sharpton needs to get himself to these neighborhoods and use his skill in convincing black men to stop hating each other. Then visit the grave of each child and make a speech about why this child died. Put the blame where it really is, a black man hated a black man.
    The NFL needs get the names of the boys killed and put them on their helmets.
    Jason Eberhart Jr.-16 talented football player, killed in the street
    Royta Giles -8 killed in a mall. Smart, musically talented little boy.
    The WNBA needs the names of the little girls. Put a child like Natalia Wallace”s picture, age 7 from Chicago, on a jersey and one bullet hole on the back. With this caption. KILLED BY ONE BULLET WHILE PLAYING IN HER YARD. KILLER TURN YOURSELF IN.
    Every news outlet should roll these children’s names across their screen every day. These are the ones we need to remember. These are the ones that we need to mourn. A movement to bring justice to these children is a movement everyone regardless of political view, race or creed can support. Then address as a nation, the overriding question. Why is this happening?? How do we stop it??
    If we don’t act now the opportunity will be lost as other issues consume the American publics’ attention..

  9. So many of these talk shows are no more than haunts where maga-morons and zealots can congregate. Sowing division and fear – with the backing of an (allegedly) partisan Jeezuz. These outlets make for terrific spots for rubes and boobs to go slumming.
    It is to be wary and it is to weep.
    Under such circumstances, it must be even more difficult to be so star-spangled ****in’ awesome.
    Then again, they may be perfect environments for the spawning and spreading of serious maladies.

    • Seriously! Your comment echoes word for word the MSM and I seriously doubt if you have ever listen to conservative radio shows for any amount of time that would be necessary to come to that conclusion. If you want to point your finger at who is causing the division you need to take a good hard look at yourself and the people that you depend on for your information. They are the ones dividing us into groups depending on the color of our skin our political outlooks the god that we worship and even our sexual preferences. You won’t hear that kind of garbage on conservative broadcast.


    Maybe it’s time to create a new word to combat all the liberal propaganda with word’s like Homophobia & Islamophobia being used against us. In the future just accuse them of having “Christophobia” and say they have a fear of Christ & Christians! Please think about it! God Bless You!

  11. More Pestilences are coming after the Coronavirus!

    The Bible warns that there would be “pestilences” (plural) in the End Times! So there is more coming after the Coronavirus! Read,
    Matthew 24:7
    For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
    Luke 21:11
    And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.
    Some preachers are saying we are now under judgement because of legalizing Gay Marriage and Abortion, etc. We need a Spiritual Revival in our nation!
    Take care and God Bless!

    • …”and there shall be a president with dementia, and a vice president who cackles uncontrollably when asked questions.”

  12. Talk show hosts promote division among Americans because they encourage their listeners to take sides on important social issues. They only care about getting high ratings so that they can keep their sponsors happy and keep their jobs.
