TOP 11 MSM FACEPLANTS: Wrong on Mark Levin, Wrong on Trump Wiretaps, Wrong on... Everything

I'm thinking about launching a service like Politifact or Snopes, only honest.

In March, bestselling author and talk radio superstar Mark Levin laid out an ironclad case that the Obama administration had wiretapped the Trump campaign. In fact, Levin's evidence hinged upon reports in The New York Times and the Washington Post which, as you know, are both hotbeds of right-wing extremism.

Yet -- defying facts, logic, reason, history and common sense -- the media ignored its own reports to pillory Levin.

And now, as ex-President Obama's mentor -- the "Reverend" Jeremiah Wright -- might say, the media's chickens have come home to roost.

Monday’s report that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was wiretapped by the Obama administration before and after the election confirmed what Levin had said, proving Levin’s analysis — which was meticulously detailed and came from mainstream media sources — was correct.

But back in March, the mainstream media dismissed Levin’s claims out of hand. Levin was labeled a “conspiracy theorist,” the “overwhelming” evidence Levin presented in great detail was largely ignored, and Levin’s integrity was attacked viciously in the media.

Instead of following up on the evidence Levin presented:

  1. ABC’s Brian Ross called Levin “a conspiracy-loving talk show host.”
  2. The Washington Post claimed Levin was “confounded” or “trying to confound everyone who listens to him.”
  3. Writing for the Post, Chris Cillizza labeled Levin’s claims a “conspiracy theory” and wrote of his evidence: “The proof that all — or any — of these events are tied together by actual facts as opposed to supposition is not offered.”
  4. The New York Daily News declared Levin “the conservative radio host behind Trump’s wiretap conspiracy theory.”
  5. CNN’s Brian Stelter accused Levin of having “cherry-picked news stories that supported his thesis and omitted information that cut against it.”
  6. The New York Times called Levin’s detailed argument a “conspiratorial rant.”
  7. The L.A. Times said Levin advanced his claims against the Obama administration “without evidence” and labeled it a “conspiracy theory.”
  8. The Guardian pointed at Levin as “the talkshow [sic] host behind the baseless Obama wiretap rumor.”
  9. The Daily Beast smeared Levin as “a perpetually angry conservative media star and commentator who too often enjoys indulging in wild claims and grand conspiracy-theorizing.”
  10. The Atlantic referred to the matter as “Levin and Breitbart’s conspiracy theory.”
  11. The Associated Press falsely claimed that Levin “voiced without evidence the idea that Obama had wiretapped Trump Tower.”

Well, now Levin has been vindicated, and these media outlets look like fools. The mainstream media reaction to Levin’s accurate claims is a sterling case in point for why Americans don’t trust the media.

Brian Ross, a disgraced nutjob who attempted to tie the Aurora, Colorado movie mass-murderer to... the Tea Party without a shred of evidence, has a lot of nerve.

Mark Levin has sold millions of copies of his nonfiction books on law, government, philosophy and ethics.

Brian Ross (no relation, thankfully), on the other hand, has all the accomplishments of Milli Vanilli, but without the hit songs.
