Levin calls CNN's bluff on press freedom & Democrats' closed impeachment process: 'Where's the lawsuit?'

Friday night on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin criticized the mass media's apparent disregard for the fact that they're being closed out of a presidential impeachment process.

"Not a single one of these phony journalists ... not one of them is speaking about freedom of the press when it comes to being closed out, shut out, of the secret testimony being conducted in a secret room — a vault, if you will — in the basement of the Capitol building, where there's not classified information being discussed," Levin pointed out.

More specifically, Levin criticized CNN's Jake Tapper over his characterization of House Democrats' ongoing impeachment inquiry and questioned how serious Tapper and CNN are about wanting an open process.

"How come CNN hasn't sued the Congress under the First Amendment?" Levin asked in response to Tapper's assertion that he wants a more open process.

"You know, CNN sued the White House when they removed Jim Acosta and took his press pass away, his permanent press pass ... even though another hundred journalists are in there reporting," Levin reminded listeners. "But when the House under the Democrats prevents any journalist from participating in a process that has nothing to do with classified information, where's the lawsuit from CNN? Where's the lawsuit from the other press rooms, press corporations, press associations? They're nowhere."

Levin picked apart Tapper's faulty comparison between the current secretive process and other investigations that used closed-door depositions conducted by House Republicans when they had majority in the chamber. The comparison fails, Levin explained, because those investigations weren't impeachment processes.

"So now you know Jake Tapper is a fraud," Levin concluded.
