On a new, free episode of LevinTV, host Mark Levin explained how one of America’s most famous newspapers has been complicit in the rise of anti-Semitism in the United States for several decades.

“The New York Times has nearly a hundred-year history of [anti-Semitism],” Levin explained.

Citing examples further outlined in his forthcoming book, “Unfreedom of the Press,” Levin explained how the newspaper’s complicity in anti-Semitism goes back to the days of the Third Reich, when the outlet “intentionally hid the news of the Holocaust in its back pages, when it even talked about it, which was rare.”

“The New York Times made it virtually impossible for the American people to know what was taking place in the early parts of the Third Reich, in the early parts of the Holocaust,” Levin concluded of the outlet’s reportage.

As further proof of the NYT’s anti-Semitic history, the best-selling author and former Reagan administration official criticized the outlet’s consistent anti-Israel bias in its coverage of armed conflicts between the Jewish state and terrorist groups, its coverage of the recent shooting at a southern California synagogue, and its treatment of blatant, repeated anti-Semitic comments from Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.

Levin began by reminding viewers of a recent anti-Semitic cartoon that the newspaper had to apologize for. The controversial illustration featured a blind President Donald Trump being led by a small seeing-eye dog bearing the face of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“That cartoon could have been in official Third Reich newspapers during Hitler’s reign,” Levin commented. “That’s how outrageous this is.”

“This is pure poison,” Levin added. “This is pure hate.”
