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.
You’ve probably not even deigned to look at AAP’s post but do try to keep up with the others. They’re way ahead of you, dear.
Go ahead and lie and say you did, but its not on here. Theres links to bios and thats it.
THIS WAS HILARIOUS
Even though he answered that better than I ever could when he refused to acknowledge that Maddow did indeed call ABC out on their edited clip, and Newsbusters even admitted it in their article.
But, just because I feel like seeing how much dumber he can make himself, let’s see him try to defend Fox News’ allowance of hate speech from their viewers.
For just a small sample- Fox News allows this talk from their viewers on a daily basis. In fact, Jesse Watters probably encourages both racism and violent sentiment, considering that he went on O’Reilly’s show and said that only black people commit crime in Chicago- twice.
BTW, since you’re being picky about what constitutes an insult, does the literally hundreds of times they called union workers “thugs” count? Their constantly slanderous portrayal of occupiers? How about when they said Rush Limbaugh was right to call Sandra Fluke a slut? Uppity black people? Beck, Hannity and Megyn Kelly called Obama a racist repeatedly, does that count? How about when Bush was president, and Fox News equated his critics to traitors?
Oh, wait- Of course it doesn’t… Just like it doesn’t count when someone points out that sites like Newsbusters and Town Hall lie constantly about MSNBC, providing examples of how they lied.
All media has slant, genius- But Fox News not only has no objectivity, there’s a case that gets stronger by the day that they just want their viewers to kill people they don’t agree with. And Fox Nation is a good gague for how close they are to getting that. I daresay an even better gague than the crimes already committed that can be tied to their hosts.
Not sure where you’re getting the idea of anger from me. You may be confusing me with someone else. I don’t recall holding MSNBC’s hosts any less accountable. But you continue to avoid the central question I posed to you. Are you saying that the name calling by Hannity et al is okay in your book or just as you putti “over the top”?
And i was responding to a poster that said that the liberals at MSNBC rarely ever call conservatives names. Thats a lie. He also said he could give me 100 examples of FOX conservatives calling liberals names for every time an MSNBC liberal called a conservative a name. He clearly cant, I just like rubbing in the fact that he’s wrong. Always.
You got me there.
I can’t find any “Fox News people”
Maybe the weather report?
You’re not seriously trying to say that Fox News hosts and featured guests like Hannity (and Malkin, Levin, etc) don’t call President Obama names, are you? I thought you had acknowledged this before. Your issue was that you were trying to turn the discussion into a comparison with MSNBC before we were able to have you get back to the point of the discussion.
While we’re on that discussion to finish this up, you do acknowledge that the name-calling by Hannity (and Levin and Malkin) as well as by Limbaugh in comments regularly embraced by Fox News are reprehensible, right?
But that’s not FAIR!
It is not like Donald Trump ENDORSED Mittens!
It is not like Sean was giving BJs to Donald Trump while he contemplated his run for the White House.
