Conservative radio and TV host, constitutional scholar and best-selling author of the new book, Rediscovering Americanism: And the Tyranny of Progressivism, said on his Friday radio broadcast that most “so-called journalists” in the mainstream media are “hardcore leftists” and that they are “destroying the First Amendment” of the U.S. Constitution by “abusing it.”
Never a shy one, Levin specifically called out MSNBC “all leftists all the time,” “freaks,” CNN’s Jake Tapper, Don Lemon, Brian Stelter (Levin hilariously, and I think purposely, constantly mispronounces Stelter’s name as “Stetler,” “Stetzler,” etc, as a sign of disrespect) as well as The Washington Compost and The New York Slimes, as examples of those who have thrown away any pretense of journalistic principles because they are so obsessed with destroying the President of the United States, Donald Trump.
“They’re in an all-out war against this President in a way in which I’ve never seen before. I mean, I lived through Watergate and Iran–Contra and all the rest of it, and the media went nuts then too but not this nuts.
We have a lot of younger so-called journalists now, who are hardcore leftists, and many of them were hardcore leftists before they went into journalism. Jake Tapper, I believe, worked for Salon or Slate. He was a lib. Don Lemon, same. Stelter worked for the New York Times. These are hardcore leftists. Many of them were Democrats within the Obama or prior administrations.
For CNN, their national security, foreign policy reporter was a political appointee under Obama, and he covers the Trump administration.
Look at MSNBC, all leftists all the time, all freaks all the time. Terrible, absolutely terrible.
The Washington Compost, doing hit job after hit job. The New York Slimes, holocaust deniers, doing hit job after hit job.
That’s not the role of the media.
The media are destroying the First Amendment. The media are destroying freedom of the press by abusing it, by abusing it. These leftists have abandoned their journalistic fig leaves. That’s what they’ve done.”

Media bias in what the late, famous Andrew Breitbart called the Democrat Media Complex, is easy to spot. Watch how CNN’s Wolf Blitzer interviews a Democrat versus how he interviews a Republican. One is a slobbering lovefest and the other he’s a rabid, arguing for the sake of arguing pitbull spewing talking points as if he’s Nancy Pelosi. And pay close attention to what they obsess over. Obama weaponizes the IRS against political opponents — the Tea Party — in a way that would make Richard Nixon blush, and it’s no big deal. Yet Trump tweets something and they’ll hang on it for days, panel after panel.
The media has beclowned themselves, which is why Trump can get away with calling them “fake news.”
