Conservative pundit and legal scholar Mark Levin pushed back against a Washington Post report on Monday claiming that his syndicator is demanding that its talk radio hosts stop talking about vote fraud in the 2020 election.
According to the Post report:
After months of stoking anger about alleged election fraud, one of America’s largest talk-radio companies has decided on an abrupt change of direction.
Cumulus Media, which employs some of the most popular right-leaning talk-radio hosts in the United States, has told its on-air personalities to stop suggesting that the election was stolen from President Trump — or else face termination.
A Cumulus executive issued the directive on Wednesday, just as Congress met to certify Joe Biden’s election victory and an angry mob of Trump supporters marched on the Capitol, overwhelmed police and briefly occupied the building, terrorizing lawmakers and leading to the deaths of five people.
The memo allegedly said that Cumulus “will not tolerate any suggestion that the election has not ended. The election has been resolved and there are no alternate acceptable ‘paths.’ If you transgress this policy, you can expect to separate from the company immediately.”
But Levin, who began warning in September that states were unconstitutionally changing their balloting laws ahead of the Nov. 3 election date, has also been explaining the constitutional ins and outs of why those changes were wrong.
Also, he questioned whether the memo was actually real, considering he’s never seen it nor has he heard of anyone syndicated by Westwood One getting it, either – which would be par for the course for the Post in the Trump era (phony Russian dossier, ‘Russian collusion,’ etc.).
“I never received that memo, and my crew never received that memo. This story is done by a reporter who has never spoken to me – ever,” Levin said.
If it had showed up in his inbox, “I would make sure the entire nation would hear about it…I would like a correction and an apology from the Post, but I won’t hold my breath.”
Yes, well, we won’t, either.
