Episode 210 Barry Levine and Greg Gold

The Craig Silverman Show’s New York v Trump trial correspondent Greg Gold reports on his 100 Centre Street Manhattan Criminal Courthouse observations. Trump claims that the area is locked down, and Greg proves that Trump is a liar. Gold reports the prosecution’s opening witness, David Pecker, is astoundingly good.

This case has more at stake than the John Edwards prosecution in North Carolina, which Greg Gold also attended. In Craig’s Lawyers’ Lounge, a high-level discussion occurs about what evidence might be persuasive. Greg Gold sets the scene brilliantly for the New York v Trump trial that is now underway.

The first witness in the trial is David Pecker from the National Enquirer. Our show's main guest is Barry Levine, who worked for Pecker and the Enquirer from 1999 to 2016. Barry Levine knows all the details and has broken the Enquirer's big stories on John Edwards, Jessie Jackson, and Tiger Woods. He explains how those stories happened.

Barry Levine describes Pecker's style and how he was once assigned a 2010 interview with Trump. Levine also provides the history of the National Enquirer, especially after it was under the control of David Pecker, and the American Media Inc. Host discusses how he was sometimes a paid legal consultant for AMI on celebrity crime stories.

Barry Levine is an experienced New Yorker and accomplished American journalist, author, and media executive. He is best known for his work as an investigative reporter and editor in politics, government, and entertainment, having worked for many years at the National Enquirer.

Levine and the Enquirer were nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for their story exposing the love child of former Democratic vice presidential nominee John Edwards. Senator Edwards's subsequent campaign fraud prosecution resembles what Trump now faces.

Barry Levine authored (in 2019) "All the President's Women: Donald Trump and the Making of a Predator." Back then, Levine and other reporters followed Trump's Aspen affairs. Barry knows Donald Trump's NY secrets and Trump's fantasy of being Hugh Hefner. Levine has interviewed scores of females Trump has victimized.

Troubadour Dave Gunders also discusses opening witness David Pecker and how DAs need to "Set the Tone," the title of Dave's song this week. Every trial is a rollercoaster ride, as is the 2024 election. South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem is also discussed for the shooting of her puppy, Cricket. What an outrage!
