  • Trump backs out of plan to host G-7 Summit at his Miami golf resort, blames media

    NY Post ^ | October 19, 2019 | 11:33pm | Ben Feuerherd
    President Trump said Saturday that he will no longer host the G-7 Summit at his struggling Miami golf resort — but blamed the media and Democrats for his about-face rather than concern over an appearance of self-dealing. Trump made the announcement in a trio of evening tweets, lashing out at his Democratic rivals and at press opposition — including from the New York Post — to his holding the summit at Trump National Doral. “I thought I was doing something very good for our Country by using Trump National Doral, in Miami, for hosting the G-7 Leaders. It is big,...
  • Mark Levin blasts Democrats, media for attacking Mick Mulvaney: 'It's so absurd'

    Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said nothing wrong or incriminating during a widely criticized news conference, according to radio host Mark Levin. The former South Carolina Republican congressman's exchange with the White House press corps was just the latest example of the media defending Democrats in trying to push a Trump-Ukraine narrative, Levin claimed Thursday on "The Mark Levin Show" on Westwood One. "Of course the media and the Democrats are seizing on something he said," Levin said. "Every day, it's something else to prove there was a quid pro quo. It's so absurd." "Of course the...

    A second front in the internal war at Fox News that is pitting news and opinion personalities against one another broke out into the open on Sunday. Unlike the first on air skirmish last week, in which Tucker Carlson and Shepard Smith went at it – each attacking the other on his own show – this time the conflict pitted two Fox News personnel against each other in a hostile exchange live on the same program. The venue was Sunday’s early morning weekend edition of its Fox & Friends program. Mark Levin, the conservative author, attorney, and radio talk...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Former top officials of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration are assailing the agency for undermining its weather forecasters as it defends President Donald Trump’s statement from days ago that Hurricane Dorian threatened Alabama. They say NOAA’s action risks the credibility of the nation’s weather and science agency and may even risk lives.

    O’Donnell said, “Last night, on this show, I discussed information that wasn’t ready for reporting. I repeated statements a single source told me about the president’s finances and loan documents with Deutsche Bank. Saying ‘if true’ as I discussed the information was simply not good enough. I did not go through the rigorous verification and standards process here at MSNBC before repeating what I heard from my source. Had it gone through that process, I would not have been permitted to report it. I should not have said it on air or posted it on Twitter. I was wrong to...
  • Critics pan Jim Acosta's new book: He has 'become a commentator, not a reporter'

    Fox News ^ | June 13, 2019 | Joeseph A. Wulfsohn
    Reviews of the new book "The Enemy of the People: A Dangerous Time to Tell the Truth in America" are starting to pour in and they're panning the book and its author, CNN liberal star reporter Jim Acosta, who one critics insisted has "become a commentator" in the Trump era. NPR book critic Annalisa Quinn hits Acosta's book for not asking why President Trump has "succeeded" with his attacks against the media but used the anti-Trump memoir "as an opportunity to relitigate his spats with the White House rather than to meaningfully interrogate the cultural shift that left huge numbers...

    Townhall.com ^ | May 31, 2019 | David Limbaugh
    With his latest blockbuster, "Unfreedom of the Press," Mark Levin presents a unique indictment of the liberal media today -- something I doubted could be done, given the plethora of material already written on this subject. It is sweepingly comprehensive, covering the history of the American press from before the nation's founding through modern times, yet accessibly succinct -- 226 pages, excluding the acknowledgments and notes. It is tough on the mainstream media but is anything but a ranting screed. A passionate patriot, Levin says this book's purpose "is to jump-start a long-overdue and hopefully productive dialogue among the American...

    "Life, Liberty & Levin" host Mark Levin unloaded on Democrats Wednesday night and called President Trump the "most abused president in American history." "This president is the most abused president in American history. I could care less if they think he has abused power, you know who is abusing power? The courts that you just mentioned. Do you know who is abusing power? These chairmen who issue these outrageous subpoenas against his family for his bank accounts and all the rest. Then they pretend we're in a constitutional crisis when the president dares to say no and take them to...
  • Trump used executive privilege in 'protecting the executive branch' from Congress, Levin says

    fox news ^ | May 21, 2019 | By Charles Creitz
    President Trump asserted his executive-privilege power to protect the presidency from Congress, conservative radio host Mark Levin said Tuesday. "So, why does the president exert executive privilege? Because he's trying to hide crimes or financial misconduct? Or, he doesn't want information to get out? No, because he's protecting the executive branch," Levin said on Fox News' "Hannity." Earlier this month, Trump asserted his executive privilege to protect redacted information in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on the Russia investigation as well as the underlying evidence. "Executive privilege can be asserted for a number of reasons, including protecting the privacy of...

    :As a group, they are offended that they were unable to successfully influence the outcome of the last presidential election, and they seek retribution,” said Levin. “Today, having failed in their collusion narrative, the Democratic Party-press, as I characterize them, are unfazed, as they push obstruction, impeachment, and ultimately, their desired removal of the president,” he told Secrets. “This president has been accused of leading a war against the media,” he said on his show. “Is Donald Trump a great threat to freedom of the press? What has Donald Trump done exactly to freedom of the press? He’s done exactly...

    Doug Ross @ Journal ^ | May 25, 2019 | Doug Ross (?)
    You might think that an Amazon #1 bestseller -- as Mark Levin’s ninth book has become -- would merit serious reviews from serious people. Obviously, NPR’s choice of Annalisa Quinn, a sometimes contributor to The New York Times, is immediately suspect. Conflict of interest much? As one might have guessed from minute zero, Quinn’s review of Unfreedom of the Press is not about Levin’s book, but undermining its premise through insult, not argument. Beginning with ad hominem attacks and ending with emotional diatribes, Quinn’s “review” of an academically documented and nonfiction bestseller is an outrage, but -- as Levin has...

    Mark Levin's new book, Unfreedom of the Press, published today, is a remarkable achievement. If you often get angry at the press and want to understand how we ended up with a mass media establishment that has betrayed its responsibilities and now functions as an adjunct of the Democrats, this is the book for you. ---snip--- His treatment of the New York Times, in particular, is devastating to that newspaper, and not merely its behavior in the age of Trump.

Levin’s book doesn’t officially hit shelves until Tuesday, and the conservative firebrand managed to take the top spot on the strength of pre-order sales alone.

    New York (CNN)Facebook barred seven users from its services earlier this week, citing its policies against "dangerous individuals and organizations." Now President Donald Trump is siding with the people who were banned and railing against social media "censorship" -- all while using one of his favorite social sites. The president shared more than a dozen tweets about the subject on Friday night and Saturday morning. And he conveniently avoided the fact that some of the banned users are extremists who make a living by deceiving their fans. His posts were a rallying cry, full of resentment toward Big Tech. He...

    A journalism watchdog has been forced to scrap a list of “unreliable” news sources because, as it turns out, the list wasn’t reliable. The Poynter Institute, a journalism nonprofit organization, initially released a list of more than 500 “unreliable” news outlets purportedly “built from pre-existing databases compiled by journalists, fact-checkers and researchers around the country.”But a number of prominent conservative-leaning outlets were included in the “unreliable” category, including The Washington Examiner, Washington Free Beacon, Daily Caller and other publications that employ scores of journalists covering Congress, elections, the White House and more. The index was created with the help of...

    Luke O’Neil’s opinion article in Wednesday’s Boston Globe opens lamenting a missed opportunity to adulterate political foe Bill Kristol’s meal with urine and blood. He ends with a half-baked “joke,” telling waiters they would be “serving America” by tampering with soon-to-be-former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s food. “As for the waiters out there, I’m not saying you should tamper with anyone’s food, as that could get you into trouble. You might lose your serving job,” O’Neil says, cleverly building in some plausible deniability. “But you’d be serving America. And you won’t have any regrets years later,” he concludes,...
