Rep. Keith Ellison had an epic confrontation with Sean Hannity tonight over one of Hannity’s mashup videos that purported to smear President Obama over the sequester. Or, as Hannity called it, "a Hannity highlight reel of President Panic in action." Ellison didn’t mince his words, telling Hannity, “Quite frankly, you are the worst excuse for a journalist I’ve ever seen.” Things went downhill from there until Hannity finally ended the interview.
Quite frankly, you are the worst excuse for a journalist I’ve ever seen. …What you just displayed was not journalism. It was yellow journalism. It wasn’t anything close to try to tell the American people what’s really going on. I mean it’s just shocking.
…Every journalistic ethic I have ever heard of was just violated by you.
…You are a shill for the Republican party. …You alibi them 100% of the time.
Hannity was surprisingly restrained, probably because he had a Congressman on the show. But finally, he said, “Congressman, you are a total waste of time.” And he ended the interview.
Also, I give you links. You just refuse to acknowledge them because they prove me right and you wrong.

That’ll get you started. By my count you owe me 700 examples with links. Get to posting.
@come on: have spent the better part of the morning chasing down your supposed cases and haven’t yet found anything. Am tempted to conclude that you may have invented them.
You force me to repeat myself. For every one instance where a librul media personality called a neocon a name, FoxGOPTV pukes have called libruls names at least 100 times. Only in a troll’s tiny mind does a 1 to 100 ratio prove that MSNBC is as bad as FoxGOPTV.
And again, this site monitors FoxGOPTV. What don’t you understand about that, mad troll? Here’s an idea, since you have such a hardon for MSNBC, why don’t you start a blog about them and stop making your silly comparisons here?
When El Baldo Levine calls Allen West “a national treasure” and Sean Hannity calls El Baldo a “Great American”
Hannity has nicknamed Mark Levin “The Great One.”12 Levin and Hannity remain frequent contributors to each other’s programs.
copulation between pigs and dogs seems at the core of the Republicans, cough, CONSERVATIVES.
Matthews has called conservatives: racists, liars, douchebag convention, morons, idiots, nazis, dogs, pigs, nuts, compared the GOP to HAMAS, primitive, evil, compared conservatives to Hitler and Stalin, segregationists, bigots, ignorant.
This is just from ONE MSNBC host. So dont come with this “few times” lie.
In fact, none of you seem to want to tackle ANY of those quotes I posted from MSNBC hosts. Whats the problem?
Of course your response will be something NOT addressing any of that.
Come to think of it, I have yet to see him or any of his other names post on a thread where we gave Fox News credit. But to be fair… that kinda does undermine his lie that we won’t do that.
Nope: had you actually read the purpose of the site, you’d have realised we’re sharing our outrage at only one target, namely Fox News.
The fact that they’re a shill for the GOP is mere coincidence.
I’d say that was smack dab in the middle of the bullseye.
what an oaf.
what a delight to see, and hannity the great catholic caught out in a direct lie at the start, saying he did not here the 1st comment.
Please do not get into flame wars, especially not with our regulars. Thank you.

And all the while, the troll is so outraged that somebody beat kkklannity at his own game but he totally ignores all the times that kkklannity’s actions were awful and he repeatedly lied and acted irrational.
I think I did that when I said that the one I addressed was the closest you could come to factual, and they were clearly hoping you couldn’t read past the headline.
Thanks for proving you can’t read comments, either.
How many times do you have to be told?
As long as the Fox gNOpig Propaganda Network and AM hate radio continue spewing their filth and marginalizing themselves, they are easy pickings.
Occasionally Fox reports news but with a steady stable of gNOpigs delivering propaganda, they are not credible.
Sarah Palin and Dick Morris got tossed out. Billdo, Hannity, and Karl Rove got rewarded… and Gretchen Carlson is “the independent” that’s why she shts, er, sits in the middle.
But the question isn’t whether Hannity is over the top. It’s whether you can acknowledge that Hannity has said some reprehensible things about the President, and has done so repeatedly on his program, including during the introduction to this segment. Can you see that there’s a reason that people are less than pleased with his consistent behavior in this regard? Again, not to defend anyone else behaving badly. Just to note that Hannity’s conduct here hasn’t just been over the top but way out of line. You can get carried away or excited and not refer to the President as “President Crybaby” night after night. Hannity’s behavior has regularly been beyond the pale, as if he were in a competition with Rush Limbaugh in that regard.
Does that sound rational?
Have you ever heard of his “Great American” friends?
So you’re acknowledging that Sean Hannity’s conduct, including in his introduction to this interview when he repeatedly insulted the President (and thus provoked Ellison’s angry reaction, whatever opinions any of us may hold about that reaction), has been in fact reprehensible? Again, this is not a comparison with MSNBC – just a statement regarding Sean Hannity without trying to get into a comparative discussion of which network’s anchors insulted who when.
Let me repeat.
You wingnuts, including Sean Hannity who is not a wingnut but a Registered Political Pornographer, can piss, moan, and soil yourselves in panic and bathe in the resulting righteousness.
You teabagged clowns, excited by the Fox gNOpig propaganda network, were braying ANY gNOpig could be elected to the White House in 2012.
Hey! Keep listening to morons like Sean Hannity!
What could go wrong?
