Hannity Won't Admit He Was Wrong About Terri Schiavo
Reported by Deborah - June 15, 2005
After the release of Terri Schiavo's autopsy today, it's very hard to believe that Hannity would actually have Schiavo's siblings on H&C declaring the autopsy false and continuing the accusations against Michael Schiavo.Hannity spent weeks orchestrating a media circus outside of Terri's hospice. The results of the autopsy should have resulted in an apology from Hannity or at least silence instead of a continuation of the madness.
Bobbi Schindler and Suzanne Vitadamo,daily cast members during the hospice performance,seemed completely unaffected by the autopsy results. Colmes began the questioning asking them to comment on the report . Schindler refused to acknowledge that his sister was PVS clinging to the notion that she reacted to them despite the fact that the autopsy results indicated that Terri was blind and her brain was half the normal size.
Colmes was clearly exasperated and confronted them about "bad mouthing" Michael Schiavo who had been cleared by the autopsy which found no sign of abuse. In total denial, they refused to stop blaming Terri's husband for her death.
Then Hannity jumped in and got the old accusations flying about Michael Schiavo. Brother and Sister became animated and started their character assassination and Hannity kept it going with encouraging comments.
"We have a mystery. Twenty six year old and we don't know why she collapsed. Her heart was healthy."
Vitadamo said he was there when she collapsed and needs to be questioned.
comment:It is difficult to understand how Hannity can continue this horrendous disrespect of Terri Schiavo's memory. Her family is obviously unable to let go of their delusions because their lives have centered on this drama but Hannity knows better. He did not claim that the autopsy was wrong tonight but instead concentrated on attacking Michael Schiavo.
During that dark carnival outside the hospice Hannity was part of a grotesque drama of distortion. Most people would want to distance themselves from such a lapse in judgement.The fact that Hannity chose to keep it going is astounding.
