FOX Noise is desperate. Although Sean Hannity would have been fired immediately for his blatant and vile lie on a real news network, he will apparently remain in his time slot at the fake-news network.
To tell the truth, Hannity’s misdeed was in line with FOX policy; say anything that will increase ratings, and therefore revenue, even if it is a blatant lie.
His despicable act was creating a story about the murder of DNC staffer, Seth Rich. Although police are convinced that his death was the result of a ‘robbery gone bad,’ Hannity made a feeble attempt to create a story bashing the Democratic Party. Hannity claimed that he was killed because he attempted to offer internal documents from the DNC to Wikileaks. Mr. Rich’s family was livid, and on Tuesday FOX redacted the story. Hannity disappeared.
Meanwhile extremist and deceptive right wing trash publications ‘The Drudge Report,’ and ‘Breitbart’ are offering the same story. Fallacious reports are expected from these two trashy blogs, which are supported by individuals like Hannity, Steve Bannon, Robert Mercer, and Donald Trump.
FOX management issued a statement, defending Hannity. They have lost nearly every fake-journalist they employed, and continue to face multiple lawsuits; they had little choice; but for how long? Hannity has already lost two advertisers; Cars.com and Peloton.
“Like the rest of the country, Sean Hannity is taking a vacation for Memorial Day weekend and will be back on Tuesday,” the 21st Century Fox-owned network said in a statement. “Those who suggest otherwise are going to look foolish.”
That may be; for now. However, when the lawsuits begin to come, and they will, how long can the parent company support a failed, fake-journalist who will cost them millions?
Hannity boasted about his ability to lie to his viewers.
“There’s nothing that I did, nothing that I said, except they don’t like my position politically,” he said. “They’ll try to ratchet up the intensity of their rationale. It does not justify an attempt to get me fired. And that’s what this is. This is an attempt to take me out. This is a kill shot.”
Here’s the truth; this is the first time in 20 years FOX has fully redacted a story. Hannity may not take it seriously, but his employer does.
“I did it out of my own heart,” Hannity said in an interview with HuffPost. “Nobody tells me what to say on my show. They never have and frankly they never will.”
First of all, I once met Hannity, and I can promise you that he does not have a heart. His only god is money, and he will say anything in order to continue collecting his overpaid salary.
FOX Noise has been the most divisive propaganda machine in America’s 240 year history. For years O’Reilly, Hannity, Megyn Kelly, Glenn Beck, and dozens of others have lied in attempts to denigrate the Democratic Party and praise the evils of Republicans.
My prediction is that Hannity is doomed. He will most definitely manufacture another story, likely in support of his fuhrer, Donald Trump, and this will be ‘the last straw.’
Good-bye and good riddance for the American people.
