Why Can't Hannity Criticize Obama Without Lying?

Reported by Ellen - July 8, 2009 -

Media Matters caught Sean Hannity doing it again. They write:

On the July 7 edition of his Fox News show, Sean Hannity deceptively cropped President Obama's answer to a question from Fox News senior White House correspondent Major Garrett about the Cold War to suggest that Obama did not acknowledge the actions of past U.S. presidents in freeing Eastern Europe. In fact, as part of his answer, Obama stated, "I'm very proud of the traditions of Democratic and Republican presidents to lift the Iron Curtain," a comment Hannity edited out of the clip he aired of Obama's response... Media Matters for America has documented a pattern by Hannity and other Fox News personalities of cropping Obama's comments abroad to misrepresent their meaning.

If Obama's the radical socialist Hannity likes to paint him as, you'd think he could find ample ammunition without resorting to misrepresenting and distorting the facts. Don't hold your breath for a retraction.
