In a Wednesday night segment on his radio show, Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin called out the mainstream media for their lazy, selective reporting.
“Is that news?” Levin asked rhetorically, discussing recent reports that there is “no evidence” that Obama “wiretapped” the current president during the campaign and transition.
“Is that what we’re talking about?” he continued. “No! So will the media stop pretending that that’s the issue when it’s not the issue?”
The issue at hand isn’t whether Barack Obama ordered any sort of surveillance on Trump or his team, Levin clarified — “It’s whether he knew anything” about it.
“Why are they sitting on their butts?” Levin said. Whereas there'd be a frenzied rat race if the situation was in reverse, Levin noted the complete lack of investigative teams trying to track down Obama, members of his staff, and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch to get to the bottom of the story.
“Remember, it’s not just what [the media] report; it’s what they choose not to look into. It’s what they choose not to investigate.”
