Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin opened up his radio show Monday night going after the media for their partisan propaganda, and highlighting the unwillingness of the institution to uphold its role as an arbiter of the truth.
“When you dress up partisan politics as freedom of the press, it’s destructive to freedom of the press,” he said.
Levin, who served as chief of staff to President Reagan’s attorney general Ed Meese, explained that press freedoms should protect the individual.
“They’re not there to protect media companies … or quasi-famous hosts who enjoy being on tv … They’re there for a reason,” he added.
“They’re undermining this republic,” Levin said of media outlets falsely declaring themselves objective and nonpartisan. “If they do not accurately identify” their affiliation, they are “abusing that power,” he added.
Obama “had a honeymoon of eight years” with the media. “They never reported honestly about Obamacare,” Levin said of the “praetorian guard.”
The media now views advocates of private property and capitalism as members of a “fringe conservatism” worldview, Levin said of their bias.
“Must we rely on what corporate executives say” on CNN and MSNBC, he asked.
