Last March, Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin argued that the Obama administration had ordered surveillance on the Trump campaign and that there was evidence to suggest information gathered during that surveillance was leaked to harm Donald Trump politically.
Monday’s report that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was wiretapped by the Obama administration before and after the election confirmed what Levin had said, proving Levin’s analysis — which was meticulously detailed and came from mainstream media sources — was correct.
But back in March, the mainstream media dismissed Levin’s claims out of hand. Levin was labeled a “conspiracy theorist,” the “overwhelming” evidence Levin presented in great detail was largely ignored, and Levin’s integrity was attacked viciously in the media.
Instead of following up on the evidence Levin presented:
Well, now Levin has been vindicated, and these media outlets look like fools. The mainstream media reaction to Levin’s accurate claims is a sterling case in point for why Americans don’t trust the media.
