I know it’s already been said, but Sean Hannity is a liar. Melissa Harris-Perry is not an “anchor” on “NBC News”. The bug from the network says MSNBC, but the Fox label of “NBC NEWS” is much larger on the upper-left. The only one who’s valid is Andrea Mitchell, but what she said was relatively mild. If you want to point-out the race-baiting on MSNBC, fine. Go for it. Stop embellishing it with outright lies.
Sean Hannity doesn’t give a damn about things like facts. MHP does not work for NBC News, and has never hosted a news show. She is quite free to voice her opinion on race issues.
And he is quite free to criticize her truthfully. He repeatedly said “NBC News”, he referred to her as an “anchor”. I would guess that the only reason he didn’t do the same with Chris Matthews is that people might actually recognize him and know that it’s a lie.
Sean has an inner world of facts, and that’s all that matters. MSNBC and NBC News are the same thing, and so are their anchors and opinionators. Because he says so.
And, of course, the onscreen representation that it was “NBC News”, which means that it’s not just him who’s lying.
Sean lies; the viewers go along with the lie; and everyone has a good laugh because it’s just a bunch of stupid liberals so who cares?
I personally think the FNC show, THE SIMPSONS, is disrespectful of conservatives.
ABBOT: Watching Hannity on a regular basis like hitting yourself on the head with a hammer.
COSTELLO: I know.
ABBOT: Then why do you do it?
COSTELLO: Because it feels so good when I stop.
I assumed, I suppose because he’s old, that Rupert Murdoch was making plans toward a near-term retirement. Maybe he’s not so old… his mother died only two days ago.
OLD is relative.
- retirement -
Might’ve been his Alzheimer’s act at the trial that gave the impression.
Hannity’s little MHP trick was entirely intentional. FNC is obsessed with lumping NBC News together with MSNBC in order to bolster their claim that ALL mainstream media is liberal. That claim might have more credence if Hannity wasn’t resorting to making stuff up.
An what’s Hannity doing taking pot shots at MHP? In terms of ratings, isn’t that punching down? If I were MHP, I would egg him on as much as possible.
I flip back-and-forth between Piers and Hannity, and caught that particular segment. It’s a little difficult to know that a show on Fox is telling outright lies when you don’t watch. Bellicosity, overstatement and repetition is one thing, but this strikes me as a whole other. It shouldn’t be allowed, if the network has any pretensions of credibility.

That’s the problem. They have pretensions of credibility which they ignore on a regular basis. It’s a closed loop of a network bleating whatever pops in their heads about those they consider enemies, and an audience which eats it up. They have the ratings; the viewers are stupid and happy; real news and honest opinion are a joke.
Sitting here happily in my stupidity.
