(TNS) As Iran rained missiles down on a U.S.-occupied base in Iraq overnight, talk radio giant Mark Levin blasted the “mainstream” media for looping images and video of the attack provided by a state-run Iran media outlet, Fars News Agency.
Noting — correctly — that by utilizing Iran-supplied footage the American media was giving Tehran a huge propaganda victory, Levin blasted the Left-wing sycophants for hating President Trump to the point of undermining their own country.

â€œWhatâ€™s come to the fore here is a complete lack of morality in the media and in the Democrat party,â€ Levin said.
â€œThese are not people, for the most part, who care about humanity,â€ Levin went on. â€œThey care about power, they care about self-aggrandizement, but they really donâ€™t care about humanity.â€
â€œThey donâ€™t love this country; they donâ€™t even comprehend this country,â€ the host continued. â€œThey have no understanding of this country, so they trash it and they attack it.â€
Levin went on to remind listeners of the American mediaâ€™sÂ downplay of the HolocaustÂ during World War II, which is outlined in his book â€œUnfreedom of the Press,â€ saying that â€œthese are the same forces at work today.â€
â€œOur media lacks morality; it lacks virtue,â€ Levin said. â€œThis is why it stands up for a mass murdering terrorist like Soleimani and tries to destroy a patriotic commander in chief like Donald Trump.â€
â€œThey have no morality,â€ the host concluded. â€œThey do not like this country â€” and they never have.â€
Indeed, as reported by NewsBusters, the major U.S. TV networks have been providing Iranian officials with plenty of airtime, even deferring to them over U.S. officials:
CNN International and PBS host Christiane Amanpour opened Tuesdayâ€™s joint program (airing live in the afternoon on the former then late-night on PBS) with two interviews in which she couldnâ€™t have been more stark, going softer on an Iranian vice president than U.S. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper. In other words, it was par for the course with Amanpour.
Amanpour led with Esper and first stated that CNN sources were arguing that the justification to strike Soleimani based on a threat to American forcesÂ â€œmay be razor thin and the chatter was nothing out of the ordinary.â€
She then demanded that he look toÂ â€œthe world down the barrel of this camera straight in the eye and say that there was a ticking time bomb evidence.â€
As he would do repeatedly throughout the interview, Esper schooled the liberal host, telling herÂ â€œthat it’s more than razor thin, and it’s persuasiveâ€Â with Solemani lookingÂ â€œto synchronize and plan additional attacks on American forces, diplomats or facilities.â€
Her second question poured on the fluff for Iran, stating that thereâ€™sÂ â€œnot just an outpouring of grief from the people there and rallying around a regime that had been unpopular, but that it’s also a messageâ€Â that theyâ€™ll retaliate.Â
Absolutely pathetic. And worse, American taxpayers shell out hundreds of millions per yet to fund PBS, which is no different than the major mainstream networks.
More from NewsBusters:
Amanpour pivoted to Iranian VP for women and family affairs Massoumeh Ebtekar and failed to note to viewers that she was a spokeswoman for the 1979 hostage-takers during the Iranian revolution that seized 52 Americans.
Her first question was simply wondering whether Iran would â€œrespondâ€ to AmericanÂ â€œcall[s] for descalation.â€Â Ebtekar took that question and offered a long-winded answer that gushed over CNN showingÂ â€œmillions who are marching in support and in commemoration of…the Commander of the Heartsâ€Â against the Americans havingÂ â€œtaken a terrorist actionâ€Â inÂ â€œassassinat[ing]â€Â Soleimani.
She added that the Trump administrationâ€™s sanctions were alsoÂ â€œa terrorist actionâ€Â robbing children of medicine.
Amanpour eventually got another question in, trumpeting theÂ â€œoutpouring on the streetsâ€Â and noting she found itÂ â€œinterestingâ€Â that Ebtekar dubbed it aÂ â€œrevival of the Islamic revolution.â€
Pure propaganda. The reason why the crowds are so large in Iran is because people there areÂ forced to flood the streets or suffer consequences. Recall, it’s not a democracy; it’s an authoritarian regime. Do what the regime says or pay the price — with your freedom or your life.
And where was CNN and Amanpour when tens of thousands of Iranians took to the streets inÂ opposition of the regime in November?
MSNBC helped Iran push the false claim that 30 U.S. soldiers were killed tonight in their attack. Zero were killed.
This isn't just fake news, this is so damn disrespectful to the family members of those deployed.
Do better or delete your network.pic.twitter.com/2l9KzsNPc5

The fact is, Levin is 100 percent correct: Our media is in the tank for anyone and any nation who not only opposes Trump but opposes anyone who touts an ‘America first’ foreign policy.
Trump has called these losers “enemies of the people,” and they are proving him correct — again.
