Sean Hannity is one of the most popular anchors for Fox News, that beacon of “Fair and Balanced” News. Fox News is ‘fair and balanced” except when they are caught in a lie. Let’s remember these moments:
Now that the 2016 election is days away Hannity lied again. “Sean Hannity admitted on Tuesday that he used false information in making his case that President Obama is destined for jail.
Earlier that day, during the radio broadcast of the ‘Sean Hannity Show,’ he used fake news that the president, the first lady, and Elizabeth Warren had scrubbed Hillary Clinton references from their Twitter feeds.
Following that announcement Hannity asserted, “Wow. That means they know it’s huge. You know why? Because Obama’s implicated! He’s implicated here…You know what his legacy might be? Jail.”
The primary source of the information was ‘Your News Wire,’ a site known to often publish fake stories.”
Of course Hannity has admitted the story was false. However the damage is done. How many people heard that story and went strait to the polls? Hannity’s remarks are unforgivable. He lied. He knew he was lying. He intentionally deceived his audience in an effort to get them to support his candidate for President.
Sarah Palin and conservatives refer to the “lame-stream media” but there will never be a better example of a “news” anchor intentionally deceiving his audience.
The combination of the sexual abuser, Roger Ailes and the Intentional Deceptive Sean Hannity is a clear indication that there is nothing “fair” or “balanced” about Fox News.
