Sean Hannity To Give Political Lap Dance To Donald Trump–Publicly

February 1, 2020

Fox News is not journalism. Discerning people understand that fact. With the softball propaganda to be given to Donald Trump this weekend as the Fox Network airs the SuperBowl comes the needed critique from many who know the difference between a serious interview and a political lap dance.

The Trump-Hannity interview will almost certainly amount to a giant campaign ad for Trump.  Instead of flexing its (diminishing) news muscles and giving Bret Baier or Chris Wallace the opportunity to interview Trump, the network is letting Hannity snuggle and cuddle while lobbing softballs to him.

The professional Fox critics over at Media Matters weighed in on Friday… “Fox’s message is clear: When the stakes are highest and the spotlight is brightest, the network produces right-wing propaganda, not journalism,” Matt Gertz wrote. “This would be an embarrassment for Fox if anyone there still had any capacity for embarrassment. But as we’ve seen, the network has long abandoned even the pretense that any rules apply to Hannity, its undisputed standard-bearer. He is the epitome of Fox’s news product, and so it is appropriate that he represent it to the world. Fox is Sean Hannity’s network, and it doesn’t care who knows it.
