The Radio Equalizer: Brian Maloney

MSNBC Libtalker, Mark Levin Duke It Out


MSNBC Libtalker, Levin Exchange Fire Over Suit Threat

Of all the "progressive" dishonesty over the past week, the idea that conservative figures such as Sarah Palin have self-servingly inserted themselves into the debate is the sleaziest. Lefties blamed Palin for the Tucson shootings almost immediately, instantly placing her a defensive position.

Talk show hosts were also wrongly singled out, including Mark Levin, who has decided to fight back against MSNBC and its smear machine. After a solid week of anti-talker/Palin attacks, lefties then rewrote history to claim they had willingly jumped into the fray for publicity.

Rather than stand by during the dirty tricks campaign, Levin is going on the offensive. Not only has he threatened to sue the far-left cable network, he's defending Palin as well, offering $100,000 for evidence she's "promoted the murder of anyone".

Levin's primary MSNBC target is loose cannon Chris Matthews, but fellow host Ed Schultz could be named in a suit as well, which clearly has the bloated blowhard sweating it out. During Friday's syndicated radio show, Big Eddie attacked Levin, accusing him of jealousy and other assorted crimes against broadcasting.

Schultz's rant is included below, followed by Levin's (exclusive to the Radio Equalizer) response:

ED SCHULTZ (04:19): But there's a radio talker at night who's threatening a lawsuit over comments by a host on MSNBC. [laughs] It's reduced to just an elementary school challenge and it's got a dollar amount to it. Which I find hilarious. The guy clearly is envious of anybody who's got a television show and he thinks he's a TV critic. At least that's what our emailers tell me. I don't listen to the guy but his rabid listeners and followers, I guess, they email me some hateful accusations, [mocking voice] 'you really said this?!' You know, how dare you?!

And it's, look, it's sheer entertainment. You know, every right-wing th-, [thug?] talker in America gets on Fox, it seems like, except this guy. But anyway, he's got a wimpy voice, he really has no range or skill, he's come in on somebody else's coattails, no innovation. He's just, all of his material is supplied by right-wing bullet points, the way most of 'em operate over there. So he's gonna sue. He's threatening to sue Chris Matthews! [guffaws]

He's threatening, you know, I tell you what, this freedom of speech thing, for this righty talker it's just gone over the line. But it's another classic example of somebody trying to make it about them. Just like Sarah Palin does. Oh, he's got the legal system behind him. Fact of the matter is, this guy couldn't carry Chris Matthews' briefcase and it's absolutely funny, he's gonna sue. [laughs]

In response, Levin said this in an email to the Radio Equalizer: "I notice this tough guy is actually a coward. We will be monitoring him. He's dumber than dumb, so he might actually step in it. As an aside, he has no ratings, so if two of my people monitor his show, that will double his ratings."

Perhaps the most absurd assertion here is the idea that Chris Matthews enjoys some kind of stature or viewer following. The sad truth: he's almost always the lowest-rated cable talker between MSNBC, Fox and CNN. Fox often has a 400% larger audience during that hour. It's absolutely amazing Matthews wasn't canned years ago for failing to capture an audience.

As for Levin, it's so rare anyone on the right fights back with an offensive strategy that "progressives" may well be unsure how to respond.


  • Why would Mark be jealous of any broadcaster who has the extremely low ratings that Ed Schultz has?

    His ratings bump whenever someone goes past his show when changing channels...

    He couldn't even make it as a Conservative Radio Host.

  • It's funny how powerful & all knowing that Matthews & Schultz fancy themselves. (Though no one else seems to) Mark Levin is a great man, a man that could help save our republic through education of the masses, or perhaps public office some day. I met Mr. Levin in Fort Worth a few years back, just for a moment after he had stopped to visit with a disabled veteran. I watched them interact for a few minutes before I myself was lucky enough to shake his hand & thank him for all he did, much like he had just thanked the veteran. This man is an American Patriot, nothing like those MSNBC blowhards.

  • Mark Levin incited mass murder in Tucson Arizona. Also, he gave both his parents syphilis.

  • Certainly a person can have an opinion on anything. Yet, none of us have the right to "slander" a person regarding criminal type acts which they may charge the person as being involved in. To call Sarah Palin someone that incited or encouraged the "killing" of those people in Tucson, Az., is a case in point. Chris Matthews and others shouuld not only be "fired" by sued and possibly serve time in jail for such actions. The least is firing and a large law suit awarded to Sarah Palin! Free speech doesn't allow "death threats" upon another with repurcusions nor does it mean we are free to "make criminal chargs against another" without substantial evidence and a carrying out the charges with a lawful court situation to clear the charges or enforce them!
    This activity by Matthews the LEFTIST DEMOCRAT is par for the course by those involved in the "hate" Conservative movement and "hate" Republican movement along with the hate Tea Party movement.

  • Levin speaks honestly about facts. I heard Schultz' rant: all emotion, all bravado, no facts.

    Levin has the facts on his side. The left absolutely ripped Sarah Palin to shreds about the Tucson shooting. They used murder to denigrate Palin. Schultz and Matthews did it. They should apologize immediately for their unspeakably inhuman words.

  • No one has to put up with such libel and slander nor forego the remedies from a law suit.

    Still, such an on-air wrassling match won't hurt the ratings of Levin, at least.

    Pass the popcorn!

  • Levin is an experienced attorney with decades of legal experience. If anyone can recognize defamation, libel, or potential for a winning case, I'd put my retainer with Levin.

  • Levin graduated Phi Beta Kappa and magna cum laude from Temple University.

    He is a lawyer and has served in numerous capacity in the federal government including Chief of Staff to Attorney General Meese.

    He will eat their lunch.

  • Please leave the memory of Hogan's Heroes' Sgt. Schultz out of the discussion. He was a much more honorable man than Eddie.

  • Mark Levin is doing Ed Schultz and Chris Matthews a favor. Each time something like this happens, the false accusations get more strident. Mark fired a shot across their bows to warn them not to cross the line into actual libel.

  • Mark Levin, you sad, bitter, nasally pinhead. That is all.

  • Actually, it's an excellent question as to how Matthews (and Schulz etc) can stay on the air when virtually no one is watching them. How is that economically feasible? The broadcast networks routinely cancel their lowest rated programs, so why doesn't cable news work that way?

  • I sincerely hope one of these MSNBC blowhard libtards steps "over the line" with a libelous statement against Mark or Sarah. They'll get their asses handed to them and their downhill careers may be at an end.

  • Fighting Mark Levin is a really bad idea, & those hosts who want to laugh it off might really regret not backing off. This will not be a fair fight, & if it happens, I will enjoy watching it happen. I just wonder if Matthews or Special Ed will have to told by their bosses to step back, my guess is they are not bright enough to do so on their own.

    Note to Ed & Chris, go ahead, do it. See what happens.

  • Mark Levin is a fine man and intellectually he towers over the little minds over there at M.S.N.B.C. I will look forward to him legally manhandling that bunch of gutter trash. As for me, I believe that if you took the brains of Schultz,Matthews, Oberman and that red headed stepchild Larry O'Donall and shoved them up a gnats behind, they'd rattle like a BB in a boxcar. These folks are so stupid they cannot see the writing on the wall, that their time is past. America doesn't want nor need them.

  • I wouldn't want to be in a courtroom with Mark Levin. So be careful what you wish for, Mr Schultz. Always remember to back up your assertions with facts and examples (it's what I tell my students).

  • Did he actually say that?? "That freedom of speech thing"???

    Keep talking, buddy. Keep failing to notice that the "freedom of speech thing" you speak about, so condescendingly, is what makes it possible for you to earn a living.

    Keep talking. You'll dig your own grave with your mouth.

  • Shultz? Matthews? What a classic couple of liberal morons! And they're putting themselves up against Levin?

    HAH!!! You have to be kidding me.

    It's really pathetic... but more pathetic is the several listeners that Matthews and Shultz have. Those folks need help.

  • The only way lib talkers such as ED the talking hourse and others like him can stay on the air with no viewers is simple. Just as the auto makers, forced by the goverment, make a line of cheap cars that do not sell, they also raise the prices on the best sellers to compensate for the loss. The lefty tv does the same thing. The programs that make money absorb the losses from the ED show and Chris "Tingle" Mathews. Otherwise known as "distributiion of Wealth".

  • Hurrah for Mr. Levin! Sue their pants off, Sir! It's about time for a conservative celebrity to hold against these unbelievably arrogant leftard dunces to account. Their irresponsible, vicious slander has gone unanswered far too long.

  • Some one has to stop this madness.That is Levin. He will also help every other conservative who is being accused. Only when their pocket books are affected, these fools will not stop their rantings. Go,Levin,Go!!!I have talked to severla liberals. No one can give me a rational answer to the madness in Tucson. Some fool said,"Republicans are killing Democrats. Republicans are happy". I replied,"No". No one is happy. It is a very sad and unfortunate situation. This is a national tragedy and we are all mourning. This is why America is exceptional. We treat everyone, Republican/ Democrat equally. In times of tragedy, We are all Americans. But, there is an exception. To our President, Republicans are his enemies. Yes, we must return back to our classic values. We are all Americans.We must reverse the poor economy. We must close our borders. US citizenship is not for sale by thieves and those who break our laws. English must be the National language.We must cut down corporate tax so that we bring our manufacturing jobs back here from China and India.

  • Mark and the rest of these conservative talkers have no proof of blame for the liberal side, and this suit is a joke. Suit is only a tactic to fight back because Mark and these guys are scared. They are also brillant at lying and making statements so a bunch a sheep follow.

  • I just listened to this again, & Special Ed sounds just as dumb the first time I listened to it. Be very carefull of those right wing bullet points Ed, he writes many of them, & neither you or Matthews has the intellectual firepower to think about going to war with Levin.

    BTW, Levin has something Matthews & Special Ed do not, a successful broadcasting career. On top of a successful legal career, & he's a successful author. Ed wants to talk about jealousy, I don't think Levin is jealous of anyone else, & he's never had a Domestic Violence Protection Order taken out on him either. QUIT WHILE YOU'RE BEHIND, Ed. If you are smart enough to.

  • Mark Levin is courageous and just in his public pursuit of the libelous, criminal Left! Who needs their misnomered "Fairness Doctrine", when HE has the Constitution? Sarah Palin is a maverick, unabashedly conservative, American woman who refuses to be muzzled by partisan misogyny! Palin is a political and cultural gadfly, whose every utterance sends Lefty Lunatics into paroxysms of impotent and deranged rage. It is with deft expertise that Palin--lobbing her precisely targeted verbal missiles--incites the Lefty lemmings to a self-induced stampede over the political precipice. How blissful indeed, to witness the COMPLETE disassembly of the Left, at the mere sight of Her Hotness! YOU BETCHA!

  • One thought I had was that since Levin is an attorney he should consider taking on pro bono a class action suit on behalf of any Tea Party members who don't mind being named against members of the liberal media who have libeled/slandered them by connecting them to the Tucson tragedy. After all, ordinary citizens who are Tea Partiers are not public figures, so the "absence of malice" legal theory would not apply as it does to public figures.
