Hey there, this may be a scandal, but I'm putting it in the mud pit because I know where it's going to go.

Sean Hannity has had a lot of impressive guests lately. Ashcroft was on yesterday, and Rumsfeld was on today. Are we witnessing the new form of an election campaign? Bob Kerry (not John.) was interviewed by Alan Colmes tonight as well. Could the Bush campaign use the Sean Hannity radio show as a free campaign ad? I'm thinking they are. I respect Sean HAnnity, he's one of the few conservative radio hosts who will admit when he's wrong. I don't listen to Rush anymore because I think the guy's an idiot who just spouts what party lines tell him to. Sean will attack anyone if they don't fit in with his ideology, including Bush, and will apologize when he's wrong. I think many of the Amarican people recognise that, though biased, Sean's radio program is far so far as admitting fault when admission is due. As a result, conducting your campaign through him will get your message to both liberals and conservatives. I think it's a brilliant move by the Bush administration, they will be able to get their true message across to devout NPR listeners, but what do y'all think?

Really? Well, this is the mud pit, so I am going to get you started on that guy. Why do you think he's an asshole? I think, of all the ultra-right wingers on the radio, Sean Hannity is the nicest and the most willing to debate opposing viewpoints. Rush Limbaugh won't even allow opposing phonecalls on his show, at least that was the case when I stopped listening to him. Hannity, on the other hand, does, and the majority of the phone calls do disagree with him. He takes the hard route while Rush takes the easy way out. He defends his position, Rush states his position. Sean isn't afraid of the other side because he's done his research.

So why do you think he's an asshole?

Edit: And if you would, I would prefer to discuss the issue. Let's dispense with the name calling, it doesn't support an arguement.

Have you actually seen the way he treats some of his guests on his show? I've seen him treat people like $hit on his show for no apparent reason other than to make himself look like a bigshot. He maybe the "nicest" of the right wing talk show hosts but I think he's about as nice as a kick in the nuts.

That's your call. However, when people resort to insults, I think it's because they don't have a case. I don't know if that's how the majority thinks, tho. But please, continue to do so if you wish, it only supports my arguement.



Some of his guests? I've heard him tear into some people, but always using a fact-based debate, never personal insults. Just because he decimates people based on their statements doesn't make someone an asshole. He always respects his guests, even if he doesn't agree with them. I've not heard him insult to make himself a bigshot, but I just started listening to him again recently. Do you have any references? (WLS's website has previous programs, so do a search if you don't have info on you now)

As for the requests about your posts, that was for your benifit(SP?), not Seans. The more you insult instead f stating facts and ideas, makes you look ignorant. If you want to continue, be my guest, it will only support my side of the issue
Thanks, by the way!

Pfffttt!! Thanx Glad to be here to support your "arguments"
.

Anyways I've seen the guys tv show many times. The guy basically repeats almost everyhing the Bush admin says verbatim. All he does on his show is spread Right Wing Propaganda. He does have the liberal or democrats on his show just to give the illussion of being "fair and balanced". His show sucks. I only watch it sometimes now just to scream at the TV. Good way to relieve some stress.


Oh and here's some more support for your argument.... Sean Hanity is an asshole
.

heh, thanks. I'll enjoy using you as a refernece in my future posts as I use ZeroDeep in my sig.

As far as the show goes, I never catch it. I usually get home from work around 9, right after Hannity and Colmes ends. I can't defend that. But I've heard the radio show. It gets a delayed broadcast here in Chicago, and I listen to it, typically, from 7 to 9, then I get home and run to ATS


As far as repeating the Bush admin's ideas isn't true on his radio program. I've heard him tear Bush a new one.

He has differing opinions to present the illusion of being fair and balanced? First, he doesn't make that claim, Fox News does, and it's a lie. We both know that. They aren't fair and balanced, they lean right. He is the ONLY radio show that has legitimate liberals on his show. Many shows have "liberals" on them to show they're ready to debate the issues, but the "liberal" tends to be someone who spent the last 10 years of their lives living in a red wood to keep it from being cut down. Sean Hannity will have legitimate liberal voices on his radio program. He is willing to debate the issues, not exchange insults, or let the guest paint an entire party as extremist.

Please, argue against me...But more likely, insult me and Hannity. I guess that must make you feel better if you enjoy yelling at opposing viewpoints only when you need to relieve stress. I'm happy to say I love to listen to NPR, and I loved listening to 950AM and Al Franken before it was taken off the air here in IL. you can stick to your ignorance, I'll continue to educate myself on all sides of the issue

Nowhere...yet.

I do call listening to that "crap" education myself. I also consider reading Al JAzeera educating myself. And foriegn newspapers. And the Quaran. And opposing view points. And Colonel's posts. And many other things.

If you only listen to one side, you only get half the story. To draw up an opinion based on half the story is easy, and, in my opinion, ignorant (read lack of knowlege, not stupid) I listen to both sides and draw my opinion from that. I think Rush Limbaugh is an idiot. I also think "Don" from NPR is, as well. But if you wish to believe that listening to media's opposing viewpoints is stupid, go right ahead...You won't know what arguement I'm about to present next, and won't be able to effectivly debate against it...again.

that's fine! Ignore the rest of the points, but appear to be responding by addressing one small part you agree with. I have to go to bed, it's 2:30 here. I'm sure we'll take this up again tomorrow!

Yeah sure. Im tired of arguing about this suject anyways. It could go on forever. You will think Sean is great and I will still think he's a jackass. So no point in arguing about this. It's well... retarded. Good NIGHT!

Now now, I never said Sean was great, I said I respected his opinion. I disagree with him on several things. That doesn't mean I think he's a jackass. I believe he truely believes what he says, and he does his research. I respect Hannity for the same reason I respect Colonel. If you can't respect the other side's opinion, I think it stinks of fear. Fear of being proven wrong.

You can continue in this fashion, but just know, I respect Colonel's opinion a LOT more then I respect your's, and Colonel and I disagree on everything. At least he starts out by getting to the point.

I dont have a problem being proven wrong. And I am the first to admit when Im wrong. My opinion of Sean is just that "my opinion". Ive formed my opinion of him after watching his show many times on FOX. If you have a different opinion than mine then that's great.

You respect Colonel? Great, I respect him too.
Dont respect my opinion then that's great too.
It doesnt affect me either way.

_____________________
Whether or not you agree with his politics..

You only need to listen to one of Hannity's shows to know where he stands. No doubt about it. You can't fault him for that.

And he does not stack the deck irt his guest list. He often challenges those with opposing views to come on to the show. So you can't say he shuts out opposing views.

But he will hit his guests with tough questions.

I don't know of anybody that works harder than he does; he's always on tour, signing books, or whatever.

He's gonna be financially secure at a relatively young age beause of his work ethic. He most probably will carry his political and religious convictions with him to his grave.

The left/liberal has nobody even close to him. That's their fault.

The country, both sides, needs more young men like Hannity. I'd hire him in a heartbeat.

My favorite is when he has an old hippy, like Ed Asner, on the show.

And you know, he's having a contest right now, too. If anyone can get Kerry on the phone with him, say at an icecreap parlor, he's going to pay that person $1,000. Something to think about, all of you who like or dislike him. You can either, in your mind, set Sean up to look the fool or set Kerry up to look the fool. But it would be surprise for both parties if you called from a McDonald's on the campaign trail with a Kerry willing to say something on the phone.

I agree with Ocelot, Hannity's an a-hole.
He keeps that little wuss Alan Colmes around to make himself look good. Ha, I love the Air America commercials making fun of Colmes.

Come on look at that permanent, arrogant sneer he has on his face... Makes me want to hurl...

That reminds me.... Why is it that all conservative politicians/pundits seem to have the same "look". I mean they're like cookie cutter clones. Same haircuts, for the most part brunettes, no facial hair, same dress style, same bland average looks, for the most part white males. When they're getting ready to have a political debate on one of the news stations I can tell which person is the conservative just by looking at them....with about 95 percent accuracy.

Hell, the only conservative pundit that doesn't fit the stereotype is G. Gordon Liddy. Speaking of Liddy....
Why are so many of these conservative talk show hosts criminals? Ollie North, G. Gordon, Pillhea....I mean Rush Limbaugh, Joe Scarborough (maybe), Bill Bennet... Yet they all claim to be pillars of morality and righteousness.

Can't say the same for what few liberal talk show hosts there are. I've tried to see if it's just my personal bias, but I don't think it is. All the liberal talk show hosts (mainly on Air America) don't really have any dirt on them. They don't claim to be moral upstanding citizens...definatly not Randi Rhodes...
Unlike their right-wing counterparts, they tend to use humor and satire to get their point across, not screaming. Er...for the most part. Mike Malloy screams alot.

Sean doesn't scream, and I noticed in your list of criminals, his name wasn't there. And I agree, Colmes is just fodder to allow Fox News to try to make a claim that their fair and balanced.

Rush yells a lot, and he's also got some idiotic ideas. He follows political lines and admits no fault. Sean Hannity, on several occasions, has both appologized for errors he's made, and attacked our president for some of his policies. Sean is the only one out there (other then some ministries I also listen to on the radio) who stands by what he believes, not what his party tells him.

Also, you'll have to keep your eye on the rubberband gun thread. I'm going to post a pic of myself holding my new rubberband guns, and I fit the mold, too, "arrogant" smile and all!

I have only heard Sean Hannity criticize Bush once...it was on the damned pandering scapegoat that every conservative talk show host keeps close to them. You know, the illegal immigration policy Bush had proposed once upon a time.

Sean is a party pusher regardless of what anybody thinks. He is funny occaisionally, but also is annoying as hell occaisionally. Anywho...

He is a party pusher, no doubt. That's why he's on radio, to push the republican party. However, just because you run under a republican ticket doesn't mean you're on Sean's A list. He's intellectually honest with himself and his listeners. I've heard him attack Bush on several occasions, including his speaking ability, but I haven't slept in over 30 hours, and can't recall specifics. I'll post 'em when I got em
