Monday on his nationally syndicated radio program, LevinTV host Mark Levin called out reporter Carl Bernstein and CNN for suggesting that the media should edit President Trump’s press conferences, rather than airing them live.
Levin played a clip in which Bernstein said presidential press conferences should instead be treated “like a news event,” with reporters sharing just the parts they deem newsworthy with the public.
“It is a big deal. It gives you insight into how fools like this think. He’s a reporter — so-called — right? What is better news than a live event? A presidential press conference?” Levin went on to explain to listeners what Bernstein is really saying: “Because the president is a propagandist and a liar, we in the media have to take the actual news of what he’s saying and edit it and decide what is our view of the news, with our liberal values.”
Levin reminded listeners that this comes on the heels of Jim Acosta using the courts to force the return of his permanent White House press credentials. “Look what they’re demanding: that they not only be allowed to show up but they be allowed to censor and edit what takes place in that room.”
In short: “The problem is with the people that populate the media: their ideology, their motivation, and their purpose.”
