I’m probably one of the biggest Mark Levin fans ever… I have been for years. I promote him frequently, whether its a quote, his books, the Convention of States… or his relatively new website, Conservative Review…advertised as an unbiased source for straight-up conservative analysis.
Mark Levin is actually the managing editor and that’s all I needed to know. I was probably one of the first members. Now I’m probably one of the first to cancel.
“Knowledge is power, and Conservative Review® seeks to empower conservatives with the information they need to make informed decisions and hold their Republican representatives accountable.”
Over the past few months of the presidential primary season—Mark’s insisted thats he’s an objective observer… despite clearly favoring Cruz, but that’s okay. For the most part, on his show he still managed to be fair…for the most part.
But it now abundantly clear that if you go after Ted Cruz—Mark Levin will come after you.
Mark’s website Conservative Review has become so anti-Trump and pro-Cruz, that it’s laughable. They have hired rabidly anti-Trump writers like Steve Deace & Amanda Carpenter… who by the way, are both viciously anti-Trump.
Go look for yourself (unless they changed since this writing).
NO 1: Conservative Review now ALWAYS has at least ONE front page hit piece on Trump. Here’s today’s hit: “Donald Trump a Typical New York City Liberal Then and Now” but lets overlook that.
NO 2: The real comedy is when you check out Conservative Review’s Presidential Ratings page… which is a 3-tier rating system.
Specifically I direct you to the issue of who is best for the economy under the category of TAXES, ECONOMY & TRADE, Conservative Review has Trump with a second tier rating—tied for 4th place with Jeb Bush and John Kasich.
Who are the three financial minds greater than Trump among the candidates? Of course Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Rand Paul.
Really? Cruz, Rubio, and Paul all three rated higher on finances than Donald Trump? Not only is this laughable—it is a credibility killer.
Since when is it conservative to prefer inexperienced promises over actual track records of success?
Lastly, NO. 3, I point you to the Senator Ratings. Can someone explain how ANY serving senator, in this case Ted Cruz, that has missed 25% of the votes in 2015-manages to pull a 97% conservative rating at Conservative Review website. Talk about grading on a curve. Whoa.
And since when is a 25% absentee rate considered conservative?
