Robert Reich Blasts Hannity, Limbaugh and Malkin

Reported by Ellen - January 26, 2009 -

Former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich wrote an open letter to Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and Michelle Malkin in reponse to their distortion of his comments about including minorities in the stimulus package. Reich said: "The hate mail I have received since your broadcast suggests that the mischievous consequences of your demagoguery are potentially dangerous, in addition to being destructive of rational and constructive political discourse. I urge you to take responsibility for your words. Words and ideas have real world consequences, and you have demonstrated a cavalier disregard for both." You can read the rest of his comments here. It's long overdue, in my humble opinion, for Democrats to confront the right wing pundits about their hate speech. Kudos to Reich for doing so. Will Hannity have the guts to put him on his TV show?
