I hope Hannity answered by saying "I'm not a journalist at all!  I'm a douchey, narcissistic, college drop-out who can't handle it when people treat me like I treat other people"

"I'm immoral? What did I do that's immoral?"

Calling Hannity a poor excuse for a journalist is an insult to poor excuses for journalists everywhere.
 
2013-02-27 04:55:28 PM
He's a journalist?

/I just assumed that he was a flesh colored muppet.
 
2013-02-27 04:55:39 PM
"I'm not a Republican," Hannity countered, saying he's a registered conservative. "Let me correct the record."
"You are nothing but a Republican," Ellison fired back.


bazinga!

So why the fark did you go on his show? You thought maybe you could make Hannity agree with you? No, you wanted to be talked about.

You know his audience hates you, he knows his audience hates you, so this whole thing was just so the two of you could score points with your respective audiences.

You aren't speaking truth to power, Congressman, you're justifying his victim complex.

Hannity is not a journalist. He's a propagandist.

I'd compare him to Leni Riefenstahl or Joseph Goebbels, but at least they had talent.

It's a shame Keith forgot ask about that water boarding date.

There are not enough dicks in the explored universe for Hannity to choke on. Fortunately Voyager 1 and 2 have recently left the solar system in search of more.

That's what offends me most about Hannity.  Not that he is a propagandist.  Not that he is a moral coward without a single conviction.

Its that he sucks at it so badly.  He is absolutely insufferable, stupid, shallow, trite, repetitive and just farking BORING, and yet somehow, he has a career.

Maybe he has pics in a safe of Roger Ailes in a cocktail dress getting his ass reamed by a doberman or something.  I don't know.  I don't farking get it.
 
2013-02-27 05:16:43 PM
Ugh, that picture of Hannity they used at the top of the story. Never wanted to punch a face so hard in my life.

It's too bad Ellison and Hannity were not in the same room. The only thing that could have made this better would be Ellison punching Hannity right in his goddamn face.

No Democrat should EVER go on Fox news. Their viewers aren't looking to be convinced. All Rep. Ellison did is feed into their persecution complex.

None of them are Republicans.  O'Reilly, Hannity, Beck, Megyn Kelly, etc.  Not one contributor on Fox News is a Republican.  They are all Fark Independents.

He's an independent with libertarian tendencies. Which is why it's impossible to take self-labeled libertarians seriously.

He uses that all the time to deflect when people accuse him of shilling for the GOP.  He claims he is a registered member of the conservative party, which does actually exist.  In New York at least.

I don't necessarily believe him.  But even if he is, he is so devoid of any values, and he uses this to deflect so often, I suspect he registered as a conservative solely so that he can bleat "Ha! Gotcha libs! I'm not even a republican!" whenever he is accused of shilling for the GOP.

Pretty third grade if you ask me, but this is Hannity we are talking about.

Yes.  That's it exactly.  He's a real life Fark Independent.

Hannity is a talk show host, so he's a poor excuse for a talk show host.

Hannity won. He got exactly what he wanted, an angry Muslim to be the face of the Democrat party to reinforce his viewers beliefs

That could work. If 100% of Democrats simply refused to engage them in all venues it would certainly have an effect.

That's what got to me, too - there's just no such thing as a registered conservative, at least not in terms of political affiliation and registered voters. You can select one of the parties, or you can register independent, or you can register with no party affiliation. But registered conservative? That doesn't exist.

LITTLE KNOWN FACT: The noise that emanates from the mouth of Sean Hannity during his broadcasts is known as a Verbowel Movement in the medical community. I can't remember in which issue of the NEJM this term first appeared.

Lost Thought 00: Hannity won. He got exactly what he wanted, an angry Muslim to be the face of the Democrat party to reinforce his viewers beliefs


Oh he already had that.  Hannity just makes up what he needs.  nobody on the Republican side actually fact checks him.  I kind of expect Fox News to just start splicing video clips together and using voice actors to just flat out create whatever sorts of footage they need to push their political agenda talking points for that month.  Think 'Ministry of Truth' from the novel 1984 only with photoshop and video editing software.

Which makes no sense to me, since every ballot I've seen had the same candidate running under both Republican and Conservative.

I'm no Hannity fan, but perhaps the best way to show someone up and prove that they aren't an idiot who makes shiat up isn't by just rambling and yelling for a few minutes while taking words out of context and yelling even more. If anything else, if just promotes the views and opinions of the idiot you're trying to talk down to.

No it wouldn't. I guarantee it would go something like this: "None of the Democrats will appear on my show! CLEARLY they're AFRAID of having to face the TRUTH!!" And millions of Fox News viewers would applaud at their televisions.

What did he make up? That Hannity was a Republican shill? that he was immoral for lying to his viewer base on a regular basis? that he practiced yellow journalism?

I'm not seeing anything being made up there.
