Mark Levine is host of the radio/television/Internet talk show The Inside Scoop in Washington, D.C. Levine and his guests report "all the news the government does not want you to know," breaking behind-the-scene stories rarely discussed in mainstream media.
Prior to his radio debut in June 2003, Levine served three years as Legislative Counsel to Congressman Barney Frank, a high-ranking Democrat, on the Judiciary and Homeland Security Committees. In that capacity he learned how Washington really works: from the way bills become law (hint: it's not the way textbooks teach) to political negotiations, spin, Administration secrets, and dangerous lapses in American security.
Levine earned an economics degree magna cum laude from Harvard, a law degree from Yale, and was a Fulbright Scholarship in Switzerland. He also worked as a California trial attorney and has held such diverse jobs as Nazi hunter, Jewish historian, and inner-city school teacher. Levine authored the Congressional Challenge to the 2000 Florida Electors, A Layman's Guide to Bush v. Gore, and a section of the USA-PATRIOT Act.
Levine has been featured on satellite radio, Air America, and dozens of talk radio programs nationwide and in England. In addition to local radio and cable television shows, Levine's extensive national and international listenership catches his live broadcasts on the Internet.
