Mark Levin Accuses NBC News of Racism and 'Promoting Racial Division in This Country'

Noel Sheppard's picture

As NewsBusters has been reporting, so-called "news" organizations have been routinely calling leading Republican figures racists for having the nerve to criticize the policies of President Obama.

On Monday, conservative talk radio host Mark Levin specifically called out NBC News not only for its on-air talent being "blindingly white," but also for "promoting racial division in this country" (embedded audio follows with transcript and commentary):

MARK LEVIN: Let’s go play their game a little bit. Let’s look at NBC News. A very, very white guy is in charge of the company that owns NBC News. NBC News is run by very, very white guys. "Meet the Press" has only had white guys in the anchor chair. "NBC Nightly News" – a white guy. Let’s look at their bastard off-child, MSLSD: Chris Matthews – the whitest of the white guys; Joe Scarborough – white; Ed Schultz – fat and white; Larry O’Donnell – mental patient and white; Rachel, what is her name anyway, Maddow – white. It’s so white over there I’m blinded.

Isn’t it great they’re standing up for minorities over there? “Where’s the EEOC? Oh yes, the EEOC. Why don’t they investigate the on-air talent, take a look at their statistics as they’re wont to do. Are twelve, thirteen, fourteen percent of the on-air talent black? No. How about Hispanic? No. Why not? Why not, David Gregory? Why not give up your post, David Gregory to somebody of color? Racism abounds over there at MSNBC and NBC. I suppose, right? Just look at it: Blindingly white.

So then they get a Republican on, and they know we have a black president, or at least half black, and they go right for the issue, don’t they? Racism. Because Gingrich points out, I mean, in addition to flubbing badly on the Medicare issue, which he basically admitted on the program, but that doesn’t mean that David Gregory gets a pass. David Gregory, they go into their political toolbox, and what do they pull out? “He said what? He said what? Some people think?” Who would that be, David Gregory? You and your staff. You and you liberal Democrats? "Some people think that when you called Obama the food stamp president, you know, that has a racial connotation." Really? Isn’t that interesting?

Well, some people think, Mr. Gregory, that your question has a racial connotation. Not just race-baiting, but prejudice, because apparently now it is the official position of “Meet the Press” that if you’re on food stamps, you’re black. I just wanted to clarify that point, because otherwise the question makes no sense. Or, that a majority of the people are on food stamps are black, which is not true. And yet that is the inference. Well, why would Mr. Gregory make that inference? Sure he’s not prejudice? Why would he do that?

Unbelievable. This country in this day and time, we have a media, certainly as illustrated by NBC, that’s promoting racial division in this country.

For the record, here are some recent examples of NBC and affiliate MSNBC promoting racial division in this country:

#1 Tamron Hall et al

Don't worry Mark. They photoshopped Tamron Hall into the (MS)NBC promo photo. It's ok now.

#2 nbc,msnbc

As I continue to suffer though the Sunday talk-shows,I see a pattern in particularly ''Meet the Press'' of Racism charges against anyone who is from the right.Mark Levin brought up exactly what I was thinking and that is the far left see everything though the prison of race.Therefore they are the RACIST.

#3 Palm....

"... the far left see everything though the prison of race."

Interesting typo: "Prison" instead of "prism."

I like it! Seeing everything as being racially tinged certainly does imprison the left.

#4 Levin is right. NBC has been

Levin is right. NBC has been doing this for a long time. They thrive on it.


Save a SeAL, club a liberal/troll!!

#5 "Larry O’Donnell

"Larry O’Donnell – mental patient and white"


#6 Racers

Wonder what these "racers" will do if Cain or West run on the Repub. ticket. Gregory is the worst possible host of Meet the Depressed And Todd just runs around blabbibg what he is paid to say and hoping his few viewers will go along with his agenda. Williams lost all respect during the 2008 campaighn which continues today,

#7 What will they do? Look at

What will they do? Look at what they did with Clarence Thomas and Condi Rice and increase it exponentially by a factor of 10. There seems to be no greater sin in the liberal elite community than to be black AND conservative.

#8 Herman Cain thinks ...

Chuck Todd and David Gregory are crunchy and taste good with ketchup. It will be amusing.

#9 They may taste good, NL ...

... but have you ever tried to clean one of those suckers?

By the time you throw away all the crap, there is nothing left but some hair and an orifice, which is just hot air!

Comrade Bubba

#10 Questions

The only questions that they will get from Gregory will be something like this: "Why are you a black man running as a Republican?" or "Have you abandoned your race?"

#11 Mark Levin's Audience?

I would bet virtually all white too!

#12 Nope.

I enjoy it every evening as a matter of fact Mark had a woman of color sub for him when he was out. When I get off of work I will find out which day and her name (it escapes me now).

#13 Yea, He also has

Larry Elder sub sometimes.

#14 ..and that has what to do with shiite, bsny?

I'm white, and I have decided that I am a racist and a sexist and a homophobe!  Well, I'm not "all" white.  Seems one of my ancestors fell in love with and married a Native American way back in the 1700's when they were still Indians and people still got married.   I figure that just helps explain why I am a racist.

You see, bsny, I am having to face the fact that I absolutely HATE white liberals, female liberals, and LUGBUTT liberals.  I don't know what has come over me.  I should not hate people because of their race, sex, or confusion, but apparently I do.

What really confuses me is why am I a racist when most of the people I hate are white people?  I thought that you could only be tagged a racist if you hated black liberals.  As I have shown, I am an equal opportunity hater.

In fact, if I get to be much more of a hater, I am going to become very dangerous.

Comrade Bubba

#15 Ouch.


#16 What's a LUGBUTT liberal?

What's a LUGBUTT liberal? They sound horrendous.

All of the above Mr Obama? --- How about ALL OF THE BELOW, instead.

#17 Jack

LGBT community. Sometimes referred to as PLUGBUTTS, though at the moment, I can't remember how the "P" got added to the acronym.

#18 Good memory, bk.

LUGBUTT is correct.  If the term Pan Gender is added to the club in the future they will then be called PLUGBUTT.  Kind of has a nice ring to it, huh?

I read something on this blog, I think, about pan gender.  It has something to do with a new breed that considers themselves above ALL genders and spanning them all!  Now don't that sound like a peachy idea?

We may be having an effect on the LUGBUTTS.  I read in my local paper today about the GLBT's. Same flavors, different order acronym.

Comrade Bubba


They are all a bunch of BUTTPLUGS to me! MSNBC news for the truly STUPID!

#20 You forgot.....


#21 Islamophobe?

Smile when you call me that, or I might lose my Sunni disposition and cop a Shiite attitude.

Comrade Bubba

#22 Al Sharpton's audience?

Al Sharpton's audience? Virtually all black too.

All of the above Mr Obama? --- How about ALL OF THE BELOW, instead.

#23 Amazing just how desperate

Amazing just how desperate bsny has become in order to smear. Typical.

#24 Desperate? Maybe

Right? In the words of one of your most beloved wingnuts - You Betcha!


Do not feed the troll!

#26 Don't sweat it!

This mindless fool, bsny, is intellectually incapable of defending his claims and he or she knows it. He's probably also incapable of wiping himself afterwards.

#27 "he or she"

NL, I'm betting it's just another confused liberal LUGBUTT.  See above.

Comrade Bubba

#34 A typical liberal

The comment by bsny reflects the typical liberal mentality by making an accusation and not having any facts to back it up. Please, bsny, take your 2 ounce brain and 10 cent opinion and go blog on the Huffington Post or the Daily Kos. Or even the cretin Bill Press, an idiot with no known qualities other than a loudmouth.


#35 Expect more race baiting

Expect more race baiting by liberals as the election draws near. Good for Mark Levin to point it out, though it won't make any difference.

On the plus side, liberals use the race card so often it is becoming a joke.

#36 The Race Card

The left has called so many people on the right racist because we don't toe to the liberal line that it is becoming boring. Cut government-Racist. Right to work? Racist! Personal responsibility? Horribly racist and against all they believe in. Whatever we say, it doesn't make any difference, because one of these teleprompter liberals will call it racist.



Hi gang, Im new here-its my first time, be gentle!
However, you got to give it to Doctor Levin-THIS is his milk and honey, ripping into libs, ESP the media, ESP NBC news, ESP Gregory! On his least fav show, as he calls it, Meet The DePress, with the theme music blasting! Last night was VINTAGE Levin! I thought hed blow a blood vessel on his show-hell, I almost did! Funny AND frightening at the same time-sort of like a real life version of SCREAM! Only this is true, and scary-what fools these libs are-WOW!

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. BEN FRANKLIN

#38 Welcome NJ

Nice to have you here at NB.

#39 Welcome, NJ.

The picture of you on your profile looks very familiar.  Were you ever in the movies?

Comrade Bubba

#40 Welcome NJRW

I was laughing so hard while listening to this, especially as he was doing the mslsd line-up.

Mark must read NB's, because a lot of folks had pointed this out, hours after it aired.

#41 Conservative Mamet about to blow up Academia's race industry

Check out the former liberal David Mamet who has rather publicly turned conservative.

Oddly enough I enjoyed Mamet even when he was supposedly a lefty. I bet it won't be long for leftoid to claim he never had any talent.

Anyway his latest screenplay is a comedy about a young rich while girl who is turned down for Harvard despite the fact that she is over-qualified.

In retaliation she reapplies, only this time she claims that she is an AZTEC, and therefore an oppressed minority.

Hilarity, one presumes, then ensues.

I myself am a descendent of the ancient Britons, who were oppressed and enslaved by the Romans.

I am still hoping for reparations form the ITALIAN GOVERNMENT. Although it was 2000 years ago and Italy did not exist. They should pay up.

All of the above Mr Obama? --- How about ALL OF THE BELOW, instead.

#42 Interesting, Jack. I had you pegged as more of a Viking


#43 Ha ha. I shall be seeking

Ha ha.

I shall be seeking reparations from the Danes, Swedes and Norwaygians (as Obama says) too -- as they also raped and pillaged my ancestors. 

All of the above Mr Obama? --- How about ALL OF THE BELOW, instead.

#44 LOL

As a child of Irish immigrants I deserve a piece of that pie too. Not to mention my grandmother on my mother's side told me stories her grandparents heard from their parents who were children and young teens who starved and survived the famine years in the west of Ireland (unlike some of their siblings and friends). My paternal great-grandfather and his family (7 children) were evicted from his farm by a British landlord (from the house HIS grandfather had built) around 1905 after he became ill. I say England owes me a nice payout as well. Truth be told we are all probably the descendents of slaves if you go back far enough, liberty and freedom are very new concepts indeed.

tired of liberal lies

#45 Okay stunned -- well if I can

Okay stunned -- well if I can swing any lira from the Romans (now Italians) I'll send a few bob your way.

All of the above Mr Obama? --- How about ALL OF THE BELOW, instead.

#46 I could use some reparation pie also...

...but then again--I'm white--some might say, lily. Ah-ha! Reverse discrimination! That's my bandwagon of victim-hood.
*Jumping on*
Where';s my money?

#47 Link to Mamet's Story

Here's a link to an article on The Weekly Standard about Mamet's conversion. It's a great article.


"You can’t go take a trip to Las Vegas...on the taxpayer’s dime." Barack Obama

#48 Me too, Jack!

I've been bitching for years about wanting reparations from those bastard Viking raider countries! Those plicks raided, raped, enslaved, and occupied my ancestral home for 900 flapping years, and I don't get one stinking dime, yo?

African slaves had to put up with the problem of being slaves over here for what, a couple of hundred lousy years, and they still ain't over it?  Why the best thing Obama's ancestors did for the  descendants of slaves was to capture them and sell them to traders who brought them to this country instead of leaving them in their home "paradise."  A recent survey found that 123% of slave descendants would rather stay here than go back "home."

If you get the Roman money let me know.  I don't have as much claim on that as I do the Viking loot, mainly because we did a pretty good job of kicking their asses.  The Vikings were much tougher, but, hey, I'll take any "free money."

Comrade Bubba

#49 Super-Duper Majority

Wow! "...123% of slave descendants would rather stay here..." That's... what? A super-duper majority? :D

BTW, I'm a descendant of a St. Augustine Spaniard and a Timacua lady who's descendants chose not to leave Florida when the Spanish left. Given that the Timacuas were the locals who were wiped out around the time the Seminoles arrived from Georgia, I'm making claim to ownership of Florida.

I'll let you know how it goes. ;) /jk

#50 Complaints about nothing

Anyone who uses charges of racism to accuse others of being racist loses all credibility in my book. It's a bunch of sour grapes from people who have nothing better to do than to whine and complain.

#51 So

Who's lacking in credibility in this case?

#52 Good but, lots more to be said Mark.

Levin's got all kinds of ammunition (oops) against NBC/MSNBC and the liberals on this issue. Hopefully he'll make progressive racism (the real racism) his theme of the week. -bidn-

#53 "Some people think...",

"word on the street is..." , "It has been stated that..." that when I hear a statement prefaced by those or similar words, that what is about to follow is an opinion, usually a liberal one.

#54 Racer Fatigue

The racers falsely yelled out "racist" so often, the people eventually ignored them, and the racers drowned in their own hatred.

To more fully comprehend the Left, one must read “Leftism As Psychopathy” by John Ray, M.A., Ph.D. Caution, it might scare you a little bit.

#55 Mark Levin for RNC chief!

Mark Levin for RNC chief! Libs & media need to be held up like this to show who is controlling, hateful, racist & socialist. Bring this all up. Don't let it go by as water under the bridge. Hold them accountable.

Lutheran Pastor spoke on day of Hitler's inauguration:

“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” — DIETRICH BONHOEFFER

As Adolf Hitler and the Nazis seduced a nation, bullied a continent, and attempted to exterminate the Jews of Europe, a small number of dissidents and saboteurs worked to dismantle the Third Reich from the inside. One of these was Dietrich Bonhoeffer—a pastor and author, known as much for such spiritual classics as The Cost of Discipleship and Life Together, as for his 1945 execution in a concentration camp for his part in the plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler.

I have Mark Levin's podcasts on my Ipod...I hate to miss his show...makes me LOL sometimes.

"Deep within my heart lies a memory.  A song of ol' San Antone..."

#57 What is so surprising, is

What is so surprising, is that our great leader is not so offended by racism, that he won't go before a distrinctly biased group of Illegal Supporters,and tell them that the rest of the country is wrong when it says that they should follow the EXISTING laws concerning the entry into this country.Could that speech be called race baiting-- I think so--when the crowd was probably hand picked and controlled. Then on the other hand, when our great leader uses the Illegals as a back drop to a campaign LIE,is that racism? When he panders votes from people who can't even vote-WELL-is that racism? When he tells people who disagree with his SOCIALIST attitudes, to go to the back of the bus-is that racism? This character and his minions have no good in store for America,if it fails ,who do you suppose will be there in the savior seat with the solutions to our problems? His hiness,and the rest of the socialist/communist/American haters,and for sure our first gardener herself, afterall remember she told us that barak would never let us return to the old ways, ---Damn,that scared me then and it scares me even more today. What is racism, it is the use of the word to protect another lie.

What we got here is an exposure of "sin-grafting". It's like magic: Think of the worst thing people could accuse YOU of, and accuse the other fellow.... endlessly, repeatedly, forever and ever amen. This serves to deflect attention away from the accuser, as well as drive the whistle-blowers crazy trying to defend themselves against a false charge. The idea is NOT to advance an argument; rather, the idea is to implant an idea (far more often that not false) in the minds of the unwary. This is the same reason that "leading and suggestive questions" are banned in a court of law. 'Course the court of public opinion is another matter.... This is one of the many reasons we should be everlastingly grateful we got Mark Levin on our team! Mark Levin is to political commentary what Babe Ruth was to baseball!
