Tuesday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin responded to an NPR journalist’s review of his new book, “Unfreedom of the Press,” which was released Tuesday and is currently number one on Amazon’s best-seller list.
Annalisa Quinn writes in her review, titled “‘Unfreedom Of The Press’ Is Full Of Bombast And Bile,” that Levin’s book comes from a starting point of attacking media personalities, but she ignores the first chapter of the book.
“Why does she skip over Chapter 1?” Levin asked. “She skips over Chapter 1 because it’s called ‘News as Political and Ideological Activism.’ And there’s case after case, indisputable, that this is the fact with the modern mass media — that it is Democrat, that it is Progressive, that it is filled with social activists, and that it’s not reporting news. Of course there are exceptions; NPR is not one of them. Why did she skip this entire chapter that discusses standards, what freedom of the press is supposed to be, what news is supposed to be, what do we mean by journalism? Why does she skip all of that? Why? Because she’s a hack, who shouldn’t be reviewing this book,” Levin said.
Levin pointed out that the author, who is also a freelancer for the New York Times, also breezes quickly over the chapter that discusses the New York Times’ abominable lack of coverage of the Holocaust, for which Levin collaborated with three top scholars who spent years researching the issue. Quinn writes, “Along the way, he looks at the New York Times’ inadequate coverage of the Holocaust …”
“Now ladies and gentlemen, the New York Times’ coverage of the Holocaust wasn’t inadequate; it was criminal. It was unconscionable. Apparently, for Annalisa Quinn, the Holocaust was no big deal. The Third Reich was no big deal. Anything in defense of the New York Times. Anything in defense of progressivism. Anything in defense of social activism, for fundamental transformation. It doesn’t matter. And you and I are subsidizing this woman, in part: She writes for National Public Radio. … When you all but cover up what took place in the Holocaust, and the extermination of six million Jews, that’s not ‘inadequate coverage’; that’s an abomination.”
