Sean Hannity is a journalistic joke.
Hannity would sell his soul to the Nazis if it would get him ratings. He (and Fox News) are laughable. And his racist spews are abhorrent.
Even your beloved NPR and Pacifica has anti Jewish neo nazis on when it comes to bashing Israel.They forgot they are progressive stations when it comes to hate Israel fests on YOUR stations.
Talking over one another the other with nobody listening, seems to be a style which is taught and learned well in US politics. For the viewer this anti-intellectual display is frustrating and time-wasting to boot.
Playing the anti-semitic card has become a tiresome tactic used by those who clearly wish to stifle free speech and free opinion. It would seem to be the refuge of those who have run out of ideas.
