On his nationally syndicated radio talk show Tuesday, host Mark Levin took to the airwaves to defend his “friend” Sean Hannity, suggesting that the “Sean Hannity Standard” should be applied to the entire media – “every d--n one of them.”
“This is a big lie what’s taking place here, a big lie,” stated Mark Levin. “And if this is the standard now, as Nolte points out over there at Breitbart, if this is the standard now, the ‘Sean Hannity Standard,’ then let’s apply it to every d--n one of these people – every d--n one of them.”
Mark Levin’s remarks came after syndicated radio talk show host and TV personality Sean Hannity came under fire by media recently for his “limited business relationship with Michael Cohen, who is also President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, and who just had his offices, home, and hotel room raided by the FBI,” noted Breitbart’s John Nolte on Tuesday. “Because Hannity is a commentator with four hours to fill every day, he has a lot to say about the raid.”
Below is a transcript of Levin’s comments on the “Sean Hannity Standard” from Tuesday’s show:
“But even legitimate journalists— Look at legitimate sports journalists. They have to make contacts. They have to socialize with these people. Otherwise, what the hell’s the point? And yet, they can still report on them. That’s okay. It is okay.
“This is a big lie what’s taking place here, a big lie. And if this is the standard now, as Nolte points out over there at Breitbart, if this is the standard now, the ‘Sean Hannity Standard,’ then let’s apply it to every d--n one of these people – every d--n one of them.
“And hence you have no reason to trust, believe in or even think they have any credibility – these media types – unless they reveal, they put out arm’s length-long list of who it is they socialize with, who their lawyers are, who their proctologists are, who their urologists are. We want to know everything. Put out their resumes.
“Bunch of sanctimonious left-wing, kooks. We know what they want. They just want to take down Hannity, like they want to take down the rest of us who have a microphone or a TV camera. That’s what they want to do.
“This Media Matters is a Kremlin-like operation funded by every left-wing, wealthy wack job you can think of. They want to destroy not just conservative media but non-Democrat supporting media.
“And the Democrats love them, and the media use them.
“That’s how you know this is all a farce. It’s all a farce.”
