Im in Australia so Im lucky on cable I get CNN International and the BBC which are news channels that occassionally have opinion shows,from my
observation Fox is completely the opposite its an opinion channel where you occasionally get news and Shepard Smiths show is about the only one where
that news wont be totally about republicans or democrats.
My mother religiously watches Hannity so Im subjected to one hour of people generally screaming at each other to get their opinions heard each day.Mr
Hannity started his election countdown about 90 days out,each day he puts up the days to go 90,89,88,87,86 were now at about day 50.Honestly this is
like teeth being pulled in Australia we can announce an election,have a campaign and get a result in 21-28 days.So each day we get days to go then
Hannity will commence an hour of interviewing like minded people as to how great the republicans will go this election,one or two interviews
discussing how Obama is ruining the country,now dont get me wrong there is corruption and misdirection in the Obama government but Mr Hannity most
certainly cant report it in a non-partisan unbiased professional manner like dare I say it Beck can.
Then theres his 'great american panel' where the democrat is usually outnumbered 3 to 1 and drowned out in a shouting match,if this liberal mentions
George Bush initially wrecked the economy or any Bush/Cheney malfeasance like Haliburton they are mocked and poo-poo-ed according to Mr Hannity no
Republican administration has ever done anything wrong or should be held to account for what it did.
Basically Hannitys show is the same # recycled everyday to the point its become mindless to me,Mr Hannity is not a journalist,he has no field of
expertise or qualifications of any description Im aware to be a noteworthy source on anything he is purely a Republican party celebrity shill.
Taking all this into account how can he have one of the highest rating shows on cable its just an exercise in brainwashing and programming.
