    Finally! A person, whom the world knows, says something truthful directly to another on the public (media) stage. Proud of you, Ted Koppel!

    Hannity is the ass he shows himself to be on a daily basis. But, what should we expect? He's bee on FOX for years!

    Ted Koppel has more class and integrity in his little finger , then shame Hannity will never acquire.
    Personally, I would love to bitch slap Hannity
    .A world class sociopath!

    That smarmy piece of shit , Sean Hannity should be ashamed of himself.

    Oh to see that whole interview. "Somewhat intelligent people...." ooooh HS education Hannity just had to interrupt. "Are you saying?" Why yes, yes Ted was, Hannity, that's all who watch you as they don their foil hats for your "opinion" network based nothing on FACTS.

    The, Hannity tries to tell Koppel what to air and what not to air. Seems Koppel is suffering from Bannonphilia- an over inflated sense of the scope of one's influence. Crawl back under the rock where you were hatched ,Seanboy.

    As an accomplished sociopathic liar on the oligarch's propaganda network, he's adored by the non-thinkers endemic on the right. He also sort of looks like a thumb in a wig, but that is neither here nor there. Just saying. It's a shame Fox is allowed tho masquerade as a news organization. It was created to fool ignorant plebeian republicans so they would vote in the interests of the uber wealthy and corporations.

    The worst part about Hannity and his Faux cronies is that they KNOW they're blatantly lying and they do it anyway, without guilt or remorse.

    Then they refuse to accept any responsibility for the damage those lies cause.

    Lord of misrule: Don’t be so sure the demise of Trumpcare is a defeat for Donald Trump

    If Trump’s real agenda is to sow disorder and undermine democracy, even his dreadful last week might be a win

    ...Even as liberals high-five each other and hoist glasses of organically produced Prosecco to celebrate Trump’s apparent humiliation across many fronts and the abject failure of Republican “unified” government, it’s worth taking a step back and asking a bigger question: Isn’t chaos and disorder exactly what Trump wants? The obvious catch-22 in my opening sentence is that normal and reasonable standards have never applied to Donald Trump. If they did, I’d be desperately trying to convince you that some catatonia-inducing policy proposed by President Jeb Bush or President Hillary Clinton was an outrageous scandal.

    If your agenda, conscious or otherwise, is to demonstrate that representative democracy doesn’t work and that the separation of powers devised by the Founding Fathers isn’t up to the task of Making America Great Again, what better illustration could you offer than March of 2017?

      I am sure that Trump and the GOP Congress will work tirelessly to undermine the ACA and destroy it - without ever trying to replace it with something viable for all Americans. They are incapable of doing anything for others that does not personally benefit them more. Trump said that "Obamacare will explode." There is not an altruistic bone in any of their bodies. And so the ACA might explode or implode because no one in the GOP wants to provide healthcare to the American people. But they'll be sure to blame the Democrats and President Obama.

      Nope, trump has a very short attention span.

      he is already tired and wore out his brain trying to figure out how in the hell health insurance works.

      he is going to move on to something else to destroy like tax reform, has to make sure his rich friends get more breaks.

    Democrats paving way for FBI to pursue Donald Trump and his Russia co-conspirators for treason

    Treason charges would change everything

    If Donald Trump and his campaign conspired with Russia to rig the election in his favor, most Americans would likely view that as fitting their own personal definition of treason. But the legal definition of treason under U.S. law generally points to it being a wartime crime. That appears to be why the Democrats in Congress are suddenly pushing for Russia’s election hacking to be classified as an act of war, now that the FBI has revealed the depth of its Trump-Russia investigation.

    Various members of the Trump campaign are believed to have promoted pro-Russia political stances in exchange for Russia hacking into the emails of the Democratic Party and other cyber crimes. That would make the Trump campaign people guilty of conspiracy to commit whatever crimes Russia committed. But in legal terms, what exactly were those Russian crimes? Cyber hacking? Cyber theft? Election tampering?

    Those crimes are severe enough. But it’s now clear from their latest “act of war” rhetoric (source: The Hill) that the Democrats are aiming for treason charges, which are very historically rare in the United States. So how exactly would that work?

    CNN’s Brian Stelter delivered a scathing and factual questioning of Donald Trump’s worthless words and said what few on cable news have been willing to admit on the air. Donald Trump’s promises and words are useless and worthless because he has no credibility.


    Even His Own White House Admits That Trump Is Failing

    The director of the White House Office of Management and Budget Mick Mulvaney expressed shock and disappointment that the Trump administration was unable to change Washington in 65 days.

    ...To call this a failure is an understatement. Trump gambled and lost, and by threatening his own party members, he has revealed just how weak he is. This is a president with a historically low approval rating and a possible treason scandal hanging over his head. The truth is that his own party members will be best served by not helping Trump with his agenda, and they seem more than comfortable telling him no.

    No, Trump is not a magician. Trump can’t change D.C. with his “deal-making” skills. Trump has no deal-making skills in D.C., because deal-making in D.C. depends on having a high enough approval rating that Congress finds it in their own interest to work with a president.

    The adolescent naivete of this administration is truly astonishing.

      He's big on threatening, but that only works if he follows through -- once people know he doesn't, he's just a big Thumper.

    After CNN’s Dana Bash had tried to tell Sen. Bernie Sanders that the problem in Washington is that Democrats need to work with Trump, Sanders stopped the Republican talking point dead in its tracks.


    Bash asked Sanders, “Will you also tell your fellow Democrats, stop being intransigent. Let’s get together with the president to do it?”

    Sanders stopped that line of questioning immediately by replying, “Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, Dana, Dana, Dana. These guys. The Republicans have the majority. They did not include. They did not include.”

    After getting busted, Bash changed her tuned, “I’m with you. They didn’t include you, but they need you now, so let’s look forward.”

    Bash used Trump’s talking point that the Republican failure on health care was the fault of Democrats as the basis for a factual question to Sen. Sanders. If Bernie Sanders had not stopped her and made her admit the truth, that Democrats were not included in the health care bill discussion, viewers would have accepted the Republican claim that Trump is failing because Democrats won’t work with him as a fact.

    Where was the mainstream media criticism of Republicans as they obstructed Barack Obama for eight years? Why do Democrats have to work with Trump and the Republican-led Congress, when Republicans used obstruction as a political strategy nearly a decade?

    The idea that Democrats caused Trump’s healthcare bill to fail is a lie, and Bernie Sanders deserves credit for standing up for the truth and not allowing the press to give Trump a free pass on failure.

      We all know that when Republicans are jerks and do nothing but obstruct, no one objects. When the Democrats decide to sit out something as bizarre as GOP's attempt at healthcare almost voted on last week (Ryancare or Trumpcare or whatever), they are demonized for it. No Democrat on the face of the earth would have voted for that bill. It was and is a travesty. No, last week was brought to us completely by the GOP; they own it whether they want to or not.

    The action cannot come soon enough. Treason - arrest - trial - guilty - sentence (time to die or spend a considerable amount of time in the slammer, Herr Trump!)

    He truly is the most god awful human that has ever stepped into the Oval Office (off and on). A fool, inept, a bully, ugly in appearance, angry and cannot take the pressure of the office. A huge 'flunkeeeeee'!

    1. Anonymous3:28 PM

      I don't know why he calls his tweets @realDonaldTrump. Who would want to impersonate him, or be him?

  13. Olivia2:04 PM

    And that asshole Hannity kept talking over him and trying to look at him condescendingly. He just ended up looking like a hurt little wimp. Ted made his point well.

  14. I'm glad our legitimate journalists are finally growing a pair and demonstrating the courage to call a liar a liar and take down these Deplorables face to face.

    Sean Hannity is one of the most Deplorable of them all. Yes, he most certainly is BAD for America. He most certainly is NOT a legitimate journalist. He doesn't have the morals or ethics of one. He follows none of the mandates that makes a true journalist.

    It's wonderful that he is called out to his face by a journalist that is more respected than Sean Hannity can every hope to be.

    Nice to see Ted shut Sean down when Sean tried to pull his normal interruption bullshit.

    I'm disappointed the clip didn't let Ted finish.

    1. Here's the finish:

      “You have attracted people who are determined that ideology is more important than facts,” Koppel continued.

  15. Anonymous3:33 PM

    What a disrespectful little shit. He wasn't about to let Mr. Koppel finish.

    Typical faux news. Emotion masquerading as journalism. Rile 'em up, 'cause mad doesn't think.


  17. Hannity is claiming fake news because he recorded 45 min. of the interview and CBS only used 2 minutes.

    Is Hannity an idiot? Does he not know how TV works?

    I spent over an hour dancing in a group, over and over, for a promo for our local PBS and even we knew at the time they only needed 45 SECONDS. That's how it works!

    "Koppel’s entire piece, which ran nearly 11 minutes, included commentary from a range of top media figures, a media expert and President Donald Trump’s press secretary, Sean Spicer. It also included Hannity sharing a belief to Koppel that “liberalism has to be defeated.”

    “Socialism must be defeated in a political sense. We don’t want a revolution in this country,” he said.

    Hannity, in statements posted to Twitter, took issue with the selected quotes that were aired."


    I guess it's OK for James O'Keefe to edit for fake news but no one dare pare down Hannity's bloviation for time constraints. After all, the segment wasn't about Sean Hannity's opinion on how to fix life, the universe and everything. In no way was CBS obligated to broadcast all of Hannity in his entirety because he's what? God's gift to journalism? Hardly. He was a small part of a larger piece. He should be glad they included him at all.
