Sleeping Giants, The Color of Change and Media Matters for America are now focusing on one of my most talked about agitators on this blog. It took a few weeks of shameless reporting to get progressives riled up to go after him.
Sean "Softball" Hannity is the most annoying conservative agitator in the junk food media. He can't go a day without vomiting bullshit on radio and television. He's gotten away with demonizing Barack and Michelle Obama, Hillary and Bill Clinton, Alec Baldwin, Democrats, liberals and the cable news competition. He's name called, smeared, besmirched, and attacked people who disagreed with him.
He's put on right wing kooks on his carnival. Notable nuts include: David Clarke, Michelle Malkin, Pat Buchanan, Dick Morris, Bill Cunningham, Ann Coulter, Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Kevin Jackson, Jesse Lee Peterson, Laura Ingraham and Jay Sekulow. Not to mention those guests who insult Obama, Clinton, and the victims of police shootings.
|Seth Rich's death became a talking point. Sean "Softball" Hannity is using this poor man's death as a flagrant attack on Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.|
This Russian controversy isn't dying down. The softball is trying to deflect the controversy from Russia to focus on the murder of Seth Rich.
Now he's taking an opportunity to get his "facts" from an agent provocateur.
After pleas from the family of Seth Rich to not carry on, the softball continues on.
He said that some user named KimDotCom is telling the world the truth about Rich giving DNC memos to Wikileaks. The softball is making the assertion that the Democrats are panicking about this.
The intelligence agencies believe Russia played a factor in the 2016 U.S. election.
It hasn't stop the softball from doing the work that he claims the junk food media isn't covering.
Fox News had to retract a story that was posted in regards to the softball's relentless coverage.
On May 16, a story was post on the Fox News website on the investigation into the 2016 murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich. The article was not initially subjected to the high degree of editorial scrutiny we require for all our reporting. Upon appropriate review, the article was found not to meet those standards and has since been removed.
What got the ball rolling was the Fox 5 story about Rich. It came from a former Fox News contributor named Rod Wheeler.
Wheeler was running the notion that the DC Metro Police were sitting on something huge. Wheeler made the assertion that there was a "stand down" order when it came to the Rich case.
Wheeler said that the DC Metro Police and the FBI have Seth Rich's computer.
Wheeler was pushing this stuff on the social media and then the trending topic was "Seth Rich."
Soon the softball would get involved and promoted it in primetime.
Wheeler was pulled from the junk food media. Wheeler was restrained from talking to the junk food media. The family lawyer ordered Wheeler to stop talking or else face a lawsuit.
Now the family of Rich is ordering Fox News and the softball to retract and apologize.
No apologies from the softball.
The softball is going to address the "destroy Trump media" on his right carnival.
Behind the scenes, the Fox News staff is annoyed to the point where they can't stomach listening to his nightly verbal garbage.
Some are saying to the co-workers, "ARE WE STILL AIRING THAT SHIT!?"
It's time to go!!!
Do you think Sean "Softball" Hannity's right wing carnival gonna get shut down?
