Been following Sean Hannity for years and love him dearly. He is easily one of the top 10 journalists. However, his shows the past few weeks over the FISA memo have been sub par to say the least. Day after day it's a rehash of the same info and the same questions to his guests just worded in slightly different vernacular. Just disappointed and feel this is not his best work.
I havent been able to listen or watch his show for some time. Maybe hes changed, but for the longest time he was too combative and spoke over his guests and didnt let them speak. Got tired of it, plus who wants to listen to the same questions and commentary over and over again for several days if not weeks.
Geraldo Rivera said God bless Sean Hannity. It it wasn't for Sean and his investigators the memo thing would have died out. No one has covered it except Sean. Sean gave Sarah and her partner air time. BTW, Sean just had the highest number of viewers on Cable ever recorded for a show.
Calling him a journalist is a stretch. He might think he is a journalist but in reality he is a commentator. Sean does beat the dead horse but its not as bad as it could be since he normally is right.
He BRAWLS every night for the cause. He's still standing. Not perfect, (are you?) but a damn good American. Mad dog
I agree his cause is just and appreciate his tenacity in bringing the memo to light. A pundit is a better descriptor....thanks.
Still I need only watch the first 10 minutes and know just as much as I do after 60.
I will take Sean any day over the likes of Shepard Smith.
"Still I need only watch the first 10 minutes and know just as much as I do after 60."
That's my experience also. That said, I usually have the radio on and I when I do I hear the first 2 hours of his radio show, so by time he's on TV I've already heard his points for that day.
Light in the Loafers Smith sucks ... I mean thats what he does... sucks ...
Hannity and Laura Ingraham are two of the best on right now... I try to watch both every evening..... Sean does get repetitive, he says its for a reason, to get the correct info across to those who may see him for the first time ...
it is because Of Hannity, Mark Levin, Rush, Dennis Prager, Mike Gallagher and the likes that conservatism has made the inroads it has I believe... who else and where else do you get the correct side of the truth .... definitely not from the alphabet channels, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, and the piss holes like 'em, not from NPR, thats for damn sure ....
Years ago, when Sean was young, He filled in for Rush on his radio station. He dropped Rush's gold microphone. He said he thought that would be the end of his career. Laura is absolutely top notch too. She gets all over Sean about him saying he washed dishes, dug ditches, etc.
JTV, I've been spending more time with Dennis Prager, lately. The guy is sharp and and I like his take on America and who we really are as a people.
I really can't bear to hear anyone from the ABCs anymore. If it wasn't for Sarah Sanders' pressers (big fan), I'd be bereft of any national news.:)
Saw Sean last night for the first time in years. I like him but i really dont miss watching him. He is a brawler and he is correct and I am very glad he is pounding it home but he is on too late for me.
Spike, I watch the two shows after Sean and get up by 5AM. I just don't need much sleep and don't think I have ever slept over five hours a night my whole life.
I do love Hannity and the fact he is getting the truth out there. He is one of the people that the Trump organization is using to get the truth out to the American people. And YES, he is being fed inside info from people high up in Trump's team.
But I do agree about it seeming to be the same over and over. I watch it once or twice a week. Of course, I listen to others everyday who are being fed the same intel as Hannity, so I know most of what he is going to be talking about already.
Let's face it, without Hannity, the average American would have no place to turn on the TV to get the truth on what is going on in Washington and politics!
Sean is OK, but sure milks each story and tidbit a little too long. AND comes across a bit desperate, like a shill. Good, but not great. I think Laura Ingram is much better! And also really starting to like this Dan Bongino guy as a rising star in conservative broadcasting.
I gave up on Hannity years ago. He tries to be like Rush Limbaugh, but it's laughable.
Limbaugh understands the Constitution, liberty and the benefits of limited government. Hannity only pretends he does.
"He might think he is a journalist but in reality he is a commentator." You must not listen to him much since he constantly makes the point that he is NOT a journalist and he points outthe factthat most of the people on the MSM that calls themselves journalists aren't either.
BowSniper... Dan Bongino is one smart dude... he's walked the walk .. he filled in for Mark Levin yesterday on the radio .... he said the FBI/DOJ/Obama Administration is in some deep crap right now with a lot more coming ... ...
Mint, you are correct, Hannity says he is not a journalist.
I've never watched an entire Hannity show. I prefer to get news, not commentary. Besides, everything he says is regurgitated here, ad nauseam, anyway.
Easy there, Matt. With comments like that, one might get idea that you enjoy the flagellation that’s sure to follow. ;)
I actually used to listen to Hannity every day. I much prefer to listen to Rush. I like Hannity but he harps on the same things so much it gets boring. I am glad he does what he does its just not my favorite show.
I don't have a chance to listen to or watch any of them as much as I would like but you simply can not beat Rush. He is not only very informed (yes, opinionated like we all are) he is absolutely entertaining. Rush has been the countries greatest promoter. Hannity is combative to the point of being annoying at times but also has done great things for the country in terms of spreading awareness and keeping liberalism in check to a degree. I used to enjoy starting my day with Bill Bennett and his morning radio show and had a hard time warming up to Hugh Hewitt who replaced his time where I live. But, Hugh has grown on me. Another very informed and experienced guy. Laura is good too but especially on the radio becomes easily distracted. Smart lady though. Tucker is doing his thing too and can be fun to watch him gently stick his boot in the eye of a leftist. Can't say one good thing about anyone on the Clinton News Network or any of the other alphabet liberal trash that excels only in biased and yellow reporting.
I agree 100 percent, the last several days he is always talking about the missing e-mails in the mom and pop shop and beating her black berry with a hammer. Its getting old.
There was a time when there was a 30 minute evening news show and it was able to cover the important events of the day.
Now there is a 24 hour news cycle. Important news gets cycled, recycled, worn out, etc. The rest of the time has to be filled with something, so it gets filled with things that are either unimportant, marginally true, or absolutely untrue.
As stated above, Hannity is correct, but gets tiresome really fast.
Hannity, Limbaugh, Ingraham, and company are no different than Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O'Donnell, and company. If you are only getting your info from conservative or liberal talking heads then you are doing yourself a disservice. Same with Always Trumpers and Never Trumpers....they never communicate because they never hear each other.
Who said anything about getting all our info from them? No different? The first group values the Constitution as intended and conservative principles which means smaller government, free enterprise, capitalism, etc. Your second group are America hating leftists who worship liberalism and its master socialism. No different?
That's right they are no different. Most of you who call yourselves conservatives and say you stand for the constitution but only when it works for you. Remember the very first amendment...isn't it the conservatives who want Christian prayer and the pledge of allegiance in public schools. If you want less government then don't you agree with the separation of church and state? Can't have it both ways. You're saying that anyone on the left hates America and all right-wingers have constitution values. C'mon. That is not true...generalization never are. So your way of thinking is that everyone in the military is must be conservative because they love their country and there are no liberals serving. This way of thinking the reflection of the problem in D.C. You hate so much and you're never wrong = no common ground with anyone other than those that agree with you; therefore, we will argue about how to fix the sinking ship until we all drown. Why don't you try talking to the other side instead of yelling and insulting them? But back to Hannity. He has an agenda just like the rest. He is not news...he is opinion. I'm not adopting anyone's opinion. I listen to both sides find some facts about the situation and make a judgment. Hannity, Maddow are never always wrong or always right...it's just their opinion...form your own.
Both are biased if that is what you mean by "no different". Although the biased Fox News would report on negatives surrounding the likes of W for example far more so than the alphabet left would report negatives on the Clinton cabal or OBOZO the America hating race pimp. The alphabets NEVER reported negatives on him. Anyone with strong beliefs is going to be biased to some degree. But if you're talking agenda then we're talking polar opposites, and there is NO working with socialists. The rest of your blither blather is beyond meaningless.
Kind of like how Fox News never says anything bad about Trump. Yep, they are all the same. Thanks for talking to me Trax. I don't agree with you but I heard you...even your blither blather.
Tell us now what negatives HAVE there been about Trump since elected? The porn star thing? They did report on it, multiple times. The accusation that is, there is no proof and it's coming from a less than credible person. Even so, this was supposedly done 10 years ago. NOT while in office like it was with JFK and Slick Willy.
the FNM 90-95% of the time report only negatives against Trump.... the FNM 90-95% of the time only reported positives of Obama... I'm glad we have other outlets that takes on the FNM ....
Need a hard fist out there to shut the Socialist MSM that has been shoveling and Sean has been doing it for a while. Miss Combs sheepish face when Sean checked him off from his BS.
"FAKE News Media" ... CNN/MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, NPR, etc .... all of the alphabet channels ..... all of the anti-Trump media ....
Sean adamantly insists that he is not a journalist. But I agree that he can't keep quiet when he should. That mouth goes steady, and I will even yell at him to shut up when I'm trying to hear a guest speaking. But I still love & respect the man none the less. He's an awesome ally for the cause of conservatism.....
Anyone who thinks a person with a talk show is therefore a 'journalist,' is clueless and embarrassingly so.
Talk show hosts are BY DEFINITION people who offer OPINIONS and therefore CANNOT be journalists!
Sean admits he's not a journalist... so whats the beef .... there are those in the FNM who says they are, and yet prove they are not by their actions daily .. at least Hannity tells the truth ....
Yep. Sean's primary mission is to expose the truth. How can ya not love that in a guy? Just sayin'.... :^)
Anyone who doesn't see the difference probably also doesn't see the difference between telling the truth and a lie in court.
Probably doesn't see the difference between freedom of religion and freedom from religion.
May not even see the difference between legal immigration and illegal invaders.
At least the "news media" he worship can't see the difference.
