Despite numerous reports to the contrary, Sean Hannity showed up for work last night, and immediately started obfuscating for Donald Trump.

If you did not get through that entire fourteen plus minutes I don;t blame you, I did not make it through last night myself.

Thankfully TPM offers the low points:

“I have to start tonight on a personal note of something that happened last week. Now, I was asked by the family of the DNC staffer that was killed in July to pull back covering the story of the death because their son and their family was hurting,” he said on his show. “Now out of respect for the family’s wishes, well, I decided for the time being not to discuss it unless there were further developments.” 

“But I also promised you, my audience, my loyal audience, that I will not stop investigating. I will not stop asking questions,” he continued. “And at a very high level, the bottom line here is the family wants the truth and I think the country deserves the truth, because this impacts so much of what the narrative in this country is now about, which is the left and their conspiracy theory. Now I can report, I am making progress. We will have a lot more coming probably sooner than later.”

First off before his "vacation" Hannity was on the Seth Rich story like white on....on...well on the average Fox News viewer.

So for him to suddenly start considering the feelings of the family sounds more like he received an ultimatum and caved in order to keep his show.

Secondly Hannity, and his supporters, have come up with an interesting response to those calls for this advertisers to abandon his program.

He is joining with a group called #StoptheScalpings, formed by two Right Wing talk radio hosts Melanie Morgan and Brian Maloney, in calling for a similar attempt directed at Rachel Maddow.

Courtesy of Think Progress:  

Stop the Scalpings is targeting Maddow because she “has been the biggest purveyor of lies and propaganda in the media today,” Morgan writes. She goes on to allude to Maddow’s regular coverage of the Trump campaign’s shady dealings with Russia, which she dismisses as a conspiracy theory despite an active FBI investigation and the appointment of a special prosecutor. 

“We will continue to announce the advertisers that finance these efforts and support these hosts who allow lies and conspiracy theories to permeate the airwaves,” she continues. “If Media Matters ceases these type of assaults, we will do the same… Until then, we will list every advertiser that supports hosts like Rachel Maddow, an outright liar, and someone who deceives the public and defames conservatives on a daily basis.”

In other words these idiots are now attacking actual journalism in an attempt to protect their right to broadcast fake news and conservative disinformation. 


  1. Hypocrisy and a case of the sads at its finest.

    Don't you have to start investigating to stop????

    God bless Rachel Maddow and fuck Sean Hannity and Donald Trump! The latter are despicable as they come and sorry excuses for Americans!

    It is very clear that none of these idiots watch Rachel Maddow. She is probably the most honest, most informed reporter we have.

    Lawrence O'Donnell, Joy Reid and Chris Hayes are all in the honest league and the only ones I watch. O'Donnell with more DC background than any of the others on any station.

    It is so adult-like to have programs where the snarling, interrupting others on the panel, and overall discourteousness other stations allow doesn't set the scene. MSNBC's hosts are grown-ups and that is so difficult for stupid Rethugs to tolerate. Whine and yell if you are conservative because they are not educated, just blowhards for the most part. Sheesh!

    Gee... let me guess:
    God created the entire universe in 6 days
    and created Adam from a bit of clay
    and created Eve from one of his ribs
    and a talking snake got them thrown out of The Garden
    And climate change is a hoax
    and Jerry Springer is real
    and they DID find WMDs in Iraq
    and Barack HUSSEIN Obama really WAS born in Kenya and he really IS a secret Muslin and he really DOES support ISIS

  6. The difference between calling out Hannity's lies vs their sad attempt at diminishing Rachel Maddie for the same is obvious: they will chant 'fake news' and liar all they like but they cannot cite specific examples to support their position. Pathetic.

    I hope that Seth Rich's parents sue Fox News and Hannity for as much as they can get. Both are reprehensible.

    OT?'“They just made a very large order in the United States and we appreciate that for many billions of dollars, which means jobs for the United States and great, great equipment for Vietnam,” Trump told reporters at the White House."

    Billion$ to whom really?


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
