Hannity Insanity

Few people are better at creating a Krauthammer-lauded “alternate reality” than Fox’s Sean Hannity. Columnist Dick Polman provides an excellent example:

On his Fox show one week ago, Sean Hannity told his credulous fans that President Obama had made a deliberate effort during his Cairo speech “to give 9/11 sympathizers a voice on the world stage.” … Hannity even backed up his reporting by airing a video clip from the speech, with Obama saying: “I am aware that there are still some that would question or even justify the events of 9/11.”

… Hannity’s video clip of Obama was truncated after that single quoted sentence, omitting everything that followed. Here’s what Obama said next, none of which was aired for the Fox viewers:

“But let us be clear. Al Qaeda killed nearly 3000 people on that day. The victims were innocent men, women and children from America and many other nations who had done nothing to harm anybody. And yet al Qaeda chose to ruthlessly murder these people … These are not opinions to be debated; these are facts to be dealt with.” …

For that outrageous deception alone, Sean Hannity deserves a limerick:

Hannity Insanity
By Madeleine Begun Kane

There once was a fellow named Hannity
Who strutted and showed off his vanity.
From his Fox chair he lied,
Took his fans for a ride,
And showed utter disdain for humanity.

    There once was a fellow named Hannity
    Whose words were a lot of insanity.
    We know he’s a liar.
    That he sings to the choir.
    He’ll soon be extinct like the Manatee.

    Hannitler is simply trying to ape the ever-increasing hysteria of his pedophile dope addict mentor.

    Speaking of right wing detestable scum… I wrote a nice limerick today for my favorite nutjob congresscritter…

    These days there’s a bi+ch named Michele
    She’s in Congress from the District of Hell
    Every day she tells lies
    that the neocons prize
    Cause they don’t handle truth all that well

    I’ve just started a page of Hannity Insanity. Pathetic ignorance and inability to experience cognitive dissonance.
