Sean Hannity devoted an entire segment of his Hannity show last night to questioning whether or not Jimmy Fallon might tilt The Tonight Show to the left. As if Hannity doesn’t stack his own program so far to the right it might topple over one day.
Hannity announced in his introduction for the discussion:
Now that Jimmy Fallon has taken over The Tonight Show, will he treat political guests from both sides of the aisle fairly or will the show now become a safe haven for the left?
As suspicious evidence, Hannity played a clip of Fallon interviewing Michelle Obama about ObamaCare on The Tonight Show last week. Apparently, since Fallon didn’t grill her on “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” or – better yet - Benghazi, that was a sign of unconscionable bias.
Hannity called Fallon's predecessor, Jay Leno, “an equal opportunity joke teller,” adding, “I never sensed any political agenda from him.” Which is Hannity lingo for Leno told enough anti-Democratic jokes to suit him.
Hannity’s guest, Dave Berg, a former Tonight Show producer said he thinks it’s too soon to tell if Fallon, as Hannity put it, “has that same ability.” But, Berg said, Fallon seems to have made a choice to be much less political than Leno overall.
But here’s the thing. I don’t remember any slogan from NBC calling The Tonight Show “fair and balanced” or claiming that The Tonight Show is anything but a variety show with comedy and music. Hannity, on the other hand is a prime time show on a cable news network that does have that slogan.
So which show’s fairness should we really care about?
Hannity needs to knock off the hysterics.
Exactly, Ellen. FOX “news” spends an exorbitant amount of time critiquing how others on the teevee handle the issues – whether it’s other new networks or even late night comedians. But they never seem to take a hard look at the very biased way their own “fair & balanced” network presents the issues.
What’s really bogus to me is how the talking heads at FOX “news” chose to make it appear as if the late night comedians/SNL never take shots at Obama. I have to wonder if they are actually watching late night comedy because the comedians make plenty of jokes at Obama’s/the Left’s expense. Add to that the things that comedian Bill Maher says on his HBO show and it’s more proof that Obama/the Left is NOT immune from the jabs as FOX “news” would have the folks believe.
Shortly after Obama was elected, F&F’s Daddy Douchey was whining that the comedians supposedly don’t make jokes about Obama. I easily put together a list of comedians/their Obama jokes (and posted it here at NHs on some old thread) to show that Douchey full of sh!t. The FOXies have no interest in presenting things as they are but would rather keep plugging along with the bogus mantra that comedians are doing nothing more than carrying water for Obama. Of course, most of the FOX “news” fan base has been asleep for hours by the time the late night comedians so the fibbing FOXies know they can probably keep pushing this meme and get away with it.
However, since I haven’t watched the tube in a long time, I was not keeping score on where the late night jokes wound up (right, left, etc.).
To Slanthead, this apparently is a big deal!
Another big deal for Hannocchio (going OT as I tend to do) is the blow the anti-gay agenda suffered tonight when Gov. Brewer vetoed that repulsive legislation
To an avowed homophobe like Hannity, this is another major blow, just like Texas anti-same sex marriage ban being struck down earlier today by a federal judge. If this holds, it’s for sure he won’t be taking up Perry on that offer to move down there. Florida may also wind up a problem for Slanthead as that state’s ban is under legal challenge.
Where’s a good, all-Amerikan fag basher like Hannity to go? He can’t stay in New York State forever.
But at least he gets a safe haven one day a year (coming up in March): no overt gays allowed at the green beer parade!
In a great column yesterday, MoDo confirmed what I had said in an earlier comment: that the Hibernians are irrelevant and the real power behind the banishment of LGBTs is none other than Timothy (Chuckles the inflatable Cardinal) Dolan.
It turns out Dowd has inside connections to the parade which I never knew about:
And… she gives a shout out to Seanny, me-boy!
