By The Right Scoop


Ed Gillespie contacted Levin because he says that Politico never contacted him in their GOP wants to stop Palin story before using his name and in fact he says that he welcomes Sarah Palin to run and believes the Tea Party has it right. He contacted Politico about the error and they said they were told by someone that is how he felt.

Just another reason not to trust Politico’s anonymous sources. Here’s the interview with Levin and Gillespie:

    I’m not sure I trust Gilespie. He is very close to Karl Rove as well. My bet is that some of Gilespie’s people talked to Politico in order to give Gilespie plausible deniability. The same thing has been happening with Romney’s team and others.

    Make no mistake. They do want to stop SARAH PALIN. They are going to have to get through me first though, and unlike them I fought for this country in combat and will not bow down to their demands. I am sick of their nonsense and I am ready to suit up again!

    I love how Levin tries to drag his name into this whole thing. When the story came out about Palin canceling on someone IT WAS BECK!! Levin had NOTHING to do with it. And he had NOTHING to do with the last article Politco did. I like Levin but this is why i dont listen to him. He has to drag himself into everything. He has bashed Beck over and over again and he wonders why Politico says theres infighting with conservatives.

    • RestoreAmerica76

      Let me update this, the one Beck got mad about, Levin had nothing to do with. Politico did report that she cancelled on Levin and Hannity but the big story they did recently had to do with Beck.

        My recollection is that Politico did a story that Levin, Hannity, and Beck all three said was a lie. Neither Levin nor Beck mentioned the other’s name.

        • RestoreAmerica76

          Right, but that was one of the stories. Not the last one but i think the one before was that she had been trying to get ahold of Beck and said that she was mad because she couldnt get on his show. It still just irritates me though about Levin and Hannity for that matter. Last night on Hannity was the first time in years ive seen Hannity defend Beck (and it was brief at that). I dont get why Beck is like an outsider to them. I know they all compete in someways but if there is ever a time to join together NOW IS IT!! See what some stupid Politico articles can do?

        The Politico article Mark was referring to was called Hurricane Sarah, and it stated that she canceled interviewed with Levin, Hannity and Beck. Mark did indeed state at the time that it was false and requested that Politico retract it.

    this really have become a joke, the media don’t use first hand source, they use, 3rd, 4th, 5th hand source. “I read it in an internet forum.” Thats their source! I heard from someone that claim to know person A and thats his feelings, thus I will claim the source is from person A

  • 4rcane

    I wouldn’t be surprised that ALL anonymous sources in the media these days are simply internet users. They aren’t really person the reporter know who has inside scoop who want to remain anonymous. They’re really internet users who claim to have first hand knowledge who the reporter do not know who it is
