As a media person Mark Levin has the resources of corporate media to reinforce misinformation (principle #8).  His opinions become part of an entertainment package that gets echoed until one wonders who could possibly think differently.  As a media person he is trusted by certain segments of the population (principle #9), a trust that would […]

The previous entry revealed that Mark Levin’s primary distortion of information in his book Liberty and Tyranny was creating the impression that a paternal (Statist) Supreme Court began with the New Deal.  In reality it began in 1800 and distorting this fact has implications for what is conveyed as paternal.   This entry refers to my […]

The chapter “On Federalism” from Mark Levin’s book Liberty and Tyranny has a lot of good information in it.  The focus of this deconstruction may be on misinformation, but to omit the context of the good information would be misinformation in itself. Levin echoes the sentiments of James Madison that the Constitution was meant for […]

Here’s a brief recap of the misinformation principles that apply to Mark Levin’s chapter “On the Constitution.”  He supports the dogma that links property and liberty together; he omits that the Founders concerns for Supreme Court tinkering were essentially concerns about Federalist tinkering, not what Levin would call Statist tinkering; and he distorts the relative […]
