Posted on 04/14/2013 1:41:19 PM PDT by gonzo
Mark Levin opened his show tonight saying that a certain Republican Congressman who doesnt like what hes saying is trying to get the local affiliate in their district to stop running the Mark Levin Show. And apparently they are trying to do it behind the scenes. But Levin says EVERYTHING gets back to him and he will not tolerate fascism.

There’s a powerful Republican Congressman?
FWIW ............................................................................................... FRegards
several threads on this already.
He shouldn’t wait, he should name him.
C’mon Levin: Expose the enemy or be their ally.
please, enough theatrics. just name the person so there can be independent verification and an appropriate response.
we can all make educated guesses.
Congressman = senator or representative
Collins, McCain, Graham, Portman, Boner, Cantor, McCarthy, Rubio.
Not Boehner b/c Levin posted on his Facebook page: “It’s NOT Boehner.”
Mark would’ve said “Senator” if it had been one, such as McCain is.
On another thread they were saying telltale signs pointed to it being NY’s Peter King.
In the tape, Levin refers to the CongressCritter’s “district”
That makes me lean more toward a representative as opposed to a senator.
In any case, the times I’ve heard him talk about Rubio, he has remained supportive. Wonder if that will change next week.
Not sure how strong the radio slot is in Ohio but I can guarantee you Mark's show is big in DC area!
Outside chance it's McCarthy but don't think he has the clout to pull off some of the things Levin was speaking about doing to various congressmen that stand up against leadership.
On his Friday show, syndicated talk show host Mark Levin said that a Republican congressman is attempting to persuade one of his affiliates to remove his show from the airwaves.
Although Levin would not offer the congressmans name on air, he has been a vocal critic of various members of the House Republican leadership in the past. But Levin called the situation fascism.
Well, it has come to my attention that there is a Republican congressman out there who doesnt like what Ive been saying, Levin said. It has come to my attention that there is a Republican congressman out there, a fairly powerful one, who doesnt like what Im saying about him. And you know what this Republican congressman wants to do about it, Mr. Producer? He wants our major affiliate in his district where my program is heard to remove my show. This Republican congressman, who is fairly powerful, is sliming around in the background, in the shadows trying to get my show removed from one of the major radio stations in his district. Know what they call that, Mr. Producer? They call that fascism.
Mark is very precise. If this person was a Senator, Mark would say “Senator”.
While a Senator is in Congress, he is not called Congressman. He or she just is not called that. He or she is called a Senator.
On another thread about this the consensus was Peter King of NY.
I think the station in question was WABC in NY.
That was a few days ago so something else might have broken about it since then, so I’m not claiming certainty.
Pete King maybe?
He’s a senator
When a Senator is in Congress he is called a lying, two faced POS
Just tell us now Mark.
If more of these so-called 'powerful'Repjbs were not intimidated by the Left - and just tuned in; they might learn something.
“He’s a Senator.”
Congressman = A member of a congress, esp. of the U.S. House of Representatives.
Although he’s a Senator, McCain is still a member of Congress. Although I agree “Congressman” is usually used to mean members of the House.
Levin might have avoided saying “Senator” b/c he’s trying not to identify the RINO..... yet.
Otherwise it just looks like a PR stunt.
Levin posted to his facebook page that it wasn’t Boehner.
I’ve noticed that as well.
Don’t get me wrong...I really like Levin. He offers a lot of history and Constitutional perspective. He’s about the only talk show I still listen to. But even he sometimes wears me out.
I sadly must agree. Like I have already said..I like Levin. But he is an entertainer with ratings to consider. I keep that in mind at all times.
The Cynic :)
Mark Levin whines far too much on the air and is depressed/depressing. Rush Limbaugh, on the other hand, is entertaining and uplifting, even when delivering bad news. Levin is a solid conservative and my criticism is limited to how he sounds on air.
Could it be our own Senator Pardek?
I agree. Mark Levin has been depressing me lately.
He needs to have more fun humorously mocking the Marxist clowns.
Hitting the reality of how terrible they are, hour after hour, is 100% valid yet discouraging.
Mix it up, Levin!
TELL US NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Don’t hide his name- WE NEED TO KNOW
Levin’s voice sure ain’t the best, I agree. His content is usually pretty good. It’s kind of amazing that he has made it as big in radio as he has.
But I listen to him...don’t always agree, but still listen. He’s smart.
NY’s Peter King
Hi ya, ‘frog!
That’s a good point. I bet you’re right.
Then it must be Megan's daddy!
That’s what I’m thinking.
Whitout naming him it’s just a marketing ploy, like Art Bell’s Pieces.
I don’t know. Mark’s show got dropped here in Springfield a while back, and the Wall Street Journal folks who took the slot were bragging on how much less contentious they were. I know there’s a good market for him here in Central Illinois, so political correctness (aka fascism) at the stations could be costing him some market share, and he might be keeping his ear to the ground. I know I would if it were me.
