Hannity’s FNC Monologue Scores Direct Hit on the MSM’s Sick Bias

Sean Hannity rose to the challenge of confronting the MSM’s fake news Wednesday night and dealt a serious blow to the lies, misrepresentations, and omissions of the nation’s press. The vehicle was the opening monologue on his nightly Fox News show. Using a mixture of facts based on real video clips and humor, Hannity stood out once again as a defender and practitioner of fair and balanced reporting.

Right after President Donald Trump finished speaking to a large crowd in Phoenix on Tuesday night, the MSM didn’t lose a second in misrepresenting what he had just said and bashing him as a white supremacist who is unhinged and an imminent danger to the country. The fake news continued into the next day and evening, especially among the usual suspects – CNN and MSNBC. For anyone interested in fair and balanced reporting, or God forbid, who is a supporter of President Trump, it was a frustrating day to watch two of the three cable television news channels.

Sean Hannity

In contrast, it came as a pleasant surprise to see how Hannity chose to present the issue on his Fox News show Wednesday night. During his longer than usual opening monologue, which ran for the entire first 19-minute long segment of the program, Hannity began by playing a wide range of video clips from the other two news channels illustrating their sick obsession with piling on Trump. But then, nine minutes into his program and his monologue, Hannity made the first use of a new feature: As he introduced a montage of sound bites and clips of Trump criticizing and disassociating himself from white nationalists, the KKK, David Duke, etc., Hannity explained that a tone would sound each time Trump leveled a definitive criticism aimed at one of the groups the media claims Trump is coddling or sympathizing with, or has not criticized enough to the MSM’s satisfaction.

We’re going to make it so simple and easy for members of the abusively biased press to follow along. We’re going to do this – listen [at which point a single tone sounds]. Hear that? OK. We’ll start with the tragedy in Charlottesville.

And then, for the next five minutes, a wide range of video clips of Trump speaking were played – drawn from statements, speeches, debates, and interviews – going back to 1991. Each time Trump unequivocally declared his opposition to, or expressed criticism of, a hate group, racism, David Duke, etc., the tone would sound. By the end of that segment, I counted 37 tones. It was actually a brilliant technique that built momentum as the segment went on. And it was unexpectedly funny, too – the large number of tones highlighting the absurdity of the MSM claiming that Trump is a racist, a Nazi Sympathizer, a bigot, and so on and that he has failed to speak out against hate and haters.

By the end of the monologue, it was abundantly clear – as if we didn’t already know – that the mainstream media has it in for Donald Trump and is completely misrepresenting – lying about or not reporting at all – what he has actually said over the years about these sensitive topics.

A source confirmed that it was Sean Hannity himself who came up with the idea of using the sound effect. Bravo, Mr. Hannity.

Sean Hannity Fox News August 22, 2017

The video of Hannity’s entire 18-minute opening monologue, titled “’Slanderous,’ ‘Destroy-Trump’ media deserve every bit of criticism” (with the tone section starting at the 9 minute and 30 second point), is online here. Within a day or two of the broadcast, a complete transcript of the August 23 episode of Hannity should be accessible from this page at Fox News dot com.

Monday and Tuesday nights, President Trump’s speeches in prime time – Monday on Afghanistan and the following night at the rally in Phoenix – were good for Fox News. On each night, FNC beat MSNBC and CNN in both total viewers and the demographic (viewers 25-54). Since the reigning assumption is that Fox’s ratings go up when the news about President Trump is good, or when he has a major live presentation, while CNN and MSNBC benefit on nights when there is a perception of breaking bad news for the Administration, it must be that most viewers were drawn to FNC because the perception was that Monday and Tuesday were good nights for Trump and his fans.

The Truth Will Set You Free

The Truth Will Set You Free

In 1963 Dr. Martin Luther King had set the stage for the black community in America to mainstream and become part of the national society if they chose to unite in America. Many did and were better off for it. Many did not because they believed that America owed them something and that they should not have to work to achieve what others had. Instead they chose to demand it or take it by criminal action. They refused to face a truth Americans face every day, that we are the product of our own efforts and that we own our successes as well as our failures. But the greatest failure of all was turning their backs of the truth and reality. Now they want the world to accept responsibility for their own failure.

Obama’s America

Obama's America

When Barack Hussein Obama was elected in the 2008 election I fervently believed that Americans had just demonstrated a serious example of bad judgment and enacted an example of the Peter Principle in epic proportion that would be a disaster for America. They elected a man of absolutely no experience, never met a pay check, who had done everything within his power to conceal his past from the public. Although I believed that many voted for him because he was black, I was convinced that it was a clear indication that at least half of America was as stupid as a bag of hammers.

Michael Eric Dyson, Melissa Harris-Perry, Eugene Robinson, Toure, Tavis Smiley, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Eric Holder, Barack Obama, and many of those who act as race baiters, promote the victimization mentality contributing most to the failure of black culture to recognize the that limitations they create for themselves have said; “Racism is still the most intractable issue in this country, it’s a part of everything we do still.”  “It is open season on black men, and it is in many ways as bad as it was fifty years ago.” Fifty two years after Dr. Martin Luther King gave his “I Have a Dream” speech, what holds black back more than anything is blacks themselves.

Racism and the Legacy of the Left

 Racism The liberal left and the liberal media have been complicit in creating a victims class of Americans as part of their agenda, particularly blacks, and encouraging social uprisings for a long time.  Sadly innocent lives are destroyed, people hurt, and lives have been lost. They don’t care because it empowers them, and it will continue until we stand up and stop them. Continue reading “Racism and the Legacy of the Left” »

Patient-Centered Medicine and the Struggle to Survive Obamacare

By Keith Jackson (November 19, 2014)

As we near some sort of attempt at compromise regarding the future of Obamacare, you will hear from health care workers that we need to bring the focus of medicine back on the patients.  The past few years, in which there has been a well-intentioned desire to control costs through bureaucratically oriented goals, the role of doctors and nurses has morphed away from patient care.  They have found that their role as “documenter of services rendered” through electronic medical records and coding for billing purposes has significantly taken away time spent with patients.

The Grubering of Barack Obama

Confronted by Ed Henry of FOX news with the question regarding comments made by Dr. Jonathan Gruber regarding the deceptions in the ACA and the “stupidity” of the American voters that got it passed, Obama reacted with the following comments:

Obamacare and Malice

Hanlon’s Razor says: “Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.” Many people believed that Obamacare was the result of stupidity, but it was far from it. It was in every instance pure political malice.

Conservative Reform Agenda

Reform Agenda

Ben Shapiro is an extremely talented and insightful reporter for Breitbart and his articles are always spot on, informative, and replete with substantiating information that backstops every point he makes. In dealing with the election of 2014 he has been tireless in pointing out what Republicans have to be mindful of, so there isn’t a lot I can add to his insights, but I do feel compelled to give my own spin to some of it.

Chicago Activists Unchained, Destroy Black Leadership

Black leaders in Chicago have finally come to the realization that the democrat party is using and abusing them for their own purpose and demonstrates no intent to give them any real help. They seek only their votes in blind loyalty and give nothing back but empty promises that blacks have been willing to accept on faith. Now it appears there is HOPE for CHANGE as activists raise their voices to raise awareness and call to their people to recognize the truth and fight back.
