Mark Levin blasts ‘lying’ media over hit piece on his Holocaust remarks about Wolf Blitzer’s parents

Mark Levin has had it with the media.

In a lengthy Friday post on X, the conservative podcaster slammed news outlets that ran with a hit piece against him over comments he made about CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer’s Jewish heritage.

“The media CANNOT stop lying, using Soros’s Media Matters as their source and using their spin, the sickening statement from an anonymous CNN spokesman, then, of course, the Washington Post (which was silent during most of the Holocaust), and now, to top it off, a Biden regime propagandist,” Levin fumed. “It won’t work as they hang on the words ‘were’ and ‘weren’t.'”

It all began with Wednesday’s episode of “The Mark Levin Show,” Blaze Media reports.

Media outlets quoted Levin as saying, “Wolf Blitzer, as I understand it, his parents weren’t victims in one way or another, of the Holocaust. But certainly his family comes out of that background — but you wouldn’t know it. Because the ideology of the left is very attractive. It’s very compelling, particularly if you’re in media.”

To be fair, if you look at the YouTube-generated transcript of the podcast, it reads “weren’t victims.”

But Levin insists he was misquoted. You can listen below and decide for yourself:

Nevertheless, Media Matters ran with the quote, and, on Friday, CNN picked it up for a story of its own.

“CNN condemned the comments on Thursday evening as ‘wildly uninformed, inappropriate and shameful,’ and said Levin’s ‘antisemitic rhetoric is dangerous, offensive and should be universally denounced,'” Oliver Darcy wrote for the outlet.

Even the White House got involved, according to Darcy, condemning Fox News for defending Levin.

“‘Not only is Fox News aligning with those who fan the flames of hate – Fox is paying their salaries,’ Andrew Bates, deputy White House press secretary, said in a blistering statement, marking the second time this week the Biden administration publicly condemned the network for its hosts’ commentary,” Darcy reported.

Levin denied the use of the word “weren’t” on his Thursday podcast.

“Why would I say his parents ‘weren’t’ — weren’t in one way or another — victims in the Holocaust?” he asked listeners. “How can that even be logical? Why would I say somebody’s parents were or were not victims of the Holocaust? If they weren’t victims of the Holocaust, why would I say his parents weren’t victims of the Holocaust? Or why would I intentionally say that I didn’t?”

“I didn’t,” he stated.

On Friday, Levin unleashed his fury.

“The media have been horrendous in their coverage of the Oct. 7 slaughter of Israeli Jews and their subsequent use of Hamas lies, including the notorious reporting about the Gaza hospital, which they blamed on Israel, the use of Hamas statistics, the regurgitation of Biden administration talking points, and relentless insinuations and worse about Israel and its military killing civilians. The New York Times and Washington Post essentially covered up the Holocaust as it was occurring. The Times issued a quasi-apology in 2001 (the Post still has said nothing to the best of my knowledge, some 80 years later). And the Biden administration is undermining Israel’s ability to defeat Hamas while claiming to support Israel,” he wrote on X.

“I will not allow the corporate media, and their numerous propagandists, to get away with their hate and lies,” he vowed. “Never again will the media be free to push a hateful narrative without pushback from me and conservatives like me.”

“They can try and use the words ‘were’ or ‘weren’t’ to distract from what is really happening, and ask a Biden lapdog staffer for his input,” he stated, “but it will not work.”

“Biden and his media are a disgrace, and I will remain unrelenting. And I encourage all people of good faith, who stand for humanity against terrorism and antisemitism, to join me in saying Never Again,” he wrote. “I will not be intimidated, and neither should any of you!”

“Twist, spin, deceive, false narratives, and lies,” Levin concluded. “That defines the American media. And that’s why the media are despised by a large majority of the people, and rightly so.”
