Predictably, Hannity Can't Criticize Stimulus Plan Without Misinforming

Reported by Ellen - February 10, 2009 -

Sean Hannity's contempt for the truth has been well documented. Unfortunately, even during this time of economic crisis, "Great American" Hannity can't manage to criticize President Obama's stimulus plan without lying about it. As Media Matters pointed out, Hannity falsely identified "a Frisbee golf course" as an example of an earmark in the economic recovery bill. In fact, there is no earmark for "a Frisbee golf course" in either the House or Senate version of the bill, which both specifically prohibit using funds in the bill for a "golf course." The Senate version also prohibits using funds for a "community park."
