Hannity's Bullyboy Pique A Sure Sign McCain's In Trouble

Reported by Ellen - October 1, 2008 -

Democrat Tom Vilsack appeared on Hannity & Colmes last night (9/30/08) to discuss Barack Obama's position on the bailout mess. Sean Hannity grew agitated and irritable as Vilsack refused to fall for Hannity's gotcha questions and tried to start a meaningful discussion beyond “the blame game.” “This is pathetic,” Hannity seethed. Yes, it was. And if Hannity weren't such an intolerant, bullying blowhard, I'd have a lot more sympathy for him. With video.

As he grew increasingly frustrated by his inability to dominate and demean Vilsack, Hannity resorted to his distortions du jour: (falsely) accusing Obama of having advisors with ties to Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. When Vilsack corrected the record, Hannity accused him of “not telling the truth.”

Not surprisingly to anyone who follows Hannity, it was he who was not telling the truth. As I have previously written, the Franklin Raines “connection” has been debunked while Jim Johnson's relationship with the Obama campaign was brief, was limited to helping vet a vice presidential candidate and ended in June.

Feel free to contact Hannity and let him know. You can reach him at hannity@foxnews.com. You can also contact FOX News at feedback@foxnews.com and let them know that real news networks don't let their hosts repeat distortions night after night.
