Mark Steyn: Did Cary Katz snooker Mark Levin?
The way Mark Steyn was treated when he got the boot from CRTV was pretty shabby. Looks like Katz is about to do the same thing to Mark Levin and the others still at CRTV. I do not want to be too harsh on Mark Levin, I respect his political positions and he looks like he is in a bad position right now. The villain in this debacle is almost certainly Katz.

There is a lesson to be learned here. Maybe we should start recognizing how marginalized things are for conservatives in the media. There are plenty of wealthy donors who could fund operations like this and make money doing so. Step up. The tragedy of all of this is CRTV has some excellent talent and a product that should be successful (but for a certain CEO who unfortunately controls the purse strings).
Mark's comments about "Conservatism, Inc." are sadly spot on. The Weekly Standard and National Review seem to exist to attack the current President. Yes there are things to criticize Trump for (believe me I get it), but can't these TruCons™acknowledge he has been far better than the alternative of Hillary Clinton winning? If we were even little bit unified, the left and Democrats could not pull the shenanigans they have and we would get a lot more positive things accomplished.
We have Jonah going off on Jethro Tull lyrics (which is so Tipper Gore), while Google is blocking ads from the Lutherans! The clear and present danger to our society is not Jethro Tull lyrics. Meanwhile, TruCons™ antipathy to Trump is so bad now, they might as well be considered an autoimmune disease in the conservative moment. Why don't they just run away and join the Circus? But hey, as David French praises Rosenstein and Sessions for sticking it to Trump, we should just be one big uniparty with the media and Democrats.
Trump's election was apparently so profound, it changed Jonah Goldberg into John Lithgow's character from Footloose 🤯https://t.co/lHlEl7zvTN@AceofSpadesHQ @donsurber @instapundit @benshapiro @exjon pic.twitter.com/uPqkoTasZL— Evi L. Bloggerlady (@MsEBL) April 23, 2018
Is #CRTV going under over this? Some might think #CaryKatz was just in this for himself. If it does, it will be interesting to hear from Levin, Malkin, Crowder and others afterwards (I recognize they can't speak now). 🤔 https://t.co/R7LNHQFEJh— Evi L. Bloggerlady (@MsEBL) April 24, 2018
I don't know who your friends are at @CRTV but they might be interested to know that their boss, @CaryKatz, filed suit against @CRTV for millions of dollars in Las Vegas on Friday. So @CRTV seems unlikely to be long for this world. https://t.co/a0F9yfiidL— Mark Steyn (@MarkSteynOnline) April 23, 2018

1) @CRTV doesn't have "hundreds of thousands of paying customers". You're way off. Try dozens of thousands.— Mark Steyn (@MarkSteynOnline) April 23, 2018
2) They have one investor - @MarkLevinShow's "great patriot" @CaryKatz. And on Friday Katz yanked the rug out - https://t.co/a0F9yfiidL
