Nationally syndicated radio talk show host of “The Mark Levin Show” and FOX News TV host of “Life, Liberty & Levin,” Mark Levin went on Sean Hannity’s FOX TV show “Hannity” last evening, Levin suggesting the mass media in America “don’t represent a free press; they represent the Democrat Party.”

“All of a sudden, the American media says, ‘We don’t want to look,’” said Mark Levin. “All of a sudden they’re Hellen Keller – they don’t want to see, they don’t want to hear, they don’t want to know bupkis. It’s more demonstration of what a joke the mass media is in this country today. They don’t represent a free press; they represent the Democrat Party.”

Mark Levin’s comments on “Hannity” came after President Donald J. Trump, as posted on WhiteHouse.gov, “directed the intelligence community to quickly and fully cooperate with the Attorney General’s investigation into surveillance activities during the 2016 Presidential election. The Attorney General has also been delegated full and complete authority to declassify information pertaining to this investigation, in accordance with the long-established standards for handling classified information. Today’s action will help ensure that all Americans learn the truth about the events that occurred, and the actions that were taken, during the last Presidential election and will restore confidence in our public institutions.”

Below is a transcript in pertinent part of Mark Levin’s remarks concerning the mass media on “Hannity” Tuesday:

Sean Hannity: “Alright, the Democrats once screamed from rooftops about transparency. Now that President Trump, by the way, is giving it to them – he’s now declassified Russia investigative documents – they’re running for the hills.

“Here with reaction about that— By the way, number— 11 days, 12 days now in a row, number one Amazon.com, bookstores everywhere, Hannity.com – ‘Unfreedom of the Press.’ I call him ‘The Great One,’ host of ‘Life, Liberty & Levin’ the number one show Sunday nights on cable. The Great One, how are you, my friend? Thank me.”

Mark Levin: “Doing great, Sean. You know, it is kind of hilarious to watch this. I mean, even Chris Cuomo and Joe Scarborough may understand what I’m about to say, which is …”

Hannity: “Be nice. You get me in trouble. Go ahead.”

Levin: “… I thought the media wanted this information. You know, the Pentagon pages – they’re all proud of themselves – leaks to The New York Times all about the FISA court and so forth. Democrats want 6e information, classified information. They’re trying to hold the Attorney General in contempt for it.

“The president says, ‘I’ll tell you what. I’m going to give you guys a boatload of information. I want the Attorney General to look at it. We want to find out about Russia-collusion, Russia interference in the election, what the Obama administration did or didn’t do about it.

“All of a sudden, the American media says, ‘We don’t want to look.’  All of a sudden they’re Hellen Keller – they don’t want to see, they don’t want to hear, they don’t want to know bupkis. It’s more demonstration of what a joke the mass media is in this country today. They don’t represent a free press; they represent the Democrat Party.”
