Sean Hannity: The Mainstream Media Is Trying to Harm Our Country

“Hannity spent an entire 17 minute segment leveling attacks on the media, concluding that journalism is dead.”

Going after the mainstream media has become a favorite pastime for conservative media pundits recently. Fox News host Sean Hannity got in on the act Tuesday night saying that the media has developed a mob mentality and they will attack anyone who does not fall in line with the Democratic agenda. In all, Hannity spent an entire 17 minute segment leveling attacks on the media, concluding that journalism is dead.

“We have long been reporting that the mainstream media is actively trying to harm the country that we love,” Hannity said. “We all knew that the media has influenced the democrats and weak establishment republicans, but we had no idea they were this powerful until now. We also knew that the media mob has had bias, but it has never been at this level. That bias has turned into a malignant campaign against truth and fairness. They have put this country through pure hell.”

Hannity also claims that the media has been lying so long that they can no longer discern the truth.

“These self-righteous, sanctimonious, so called journalists have been spreading their lies for so long that they have started to believe them,” he said. “They are holier than thou and they actually believe they are fair and represent truth. This is nothing more than a charade.”

Hannity says the media is now using its power to lecture Americans who voted for President Donald Trump, playing different clips from various CNN programs to illustrate his point.

“Unless 75 million of us (who voted for President Trump) accept the results of an election that has proven to be fraudulent because state election laws were broken, they will come after us .They call us jerks and say we suck, even calling us smelly Wal-Mart shoppers. Joe Biden and the media are best friends. He did not even have to attack Donald Trump during the campaign. Joe hid in his basement and let the media do it for him.”

Hannity also addressed the role of the media in the Trump–Russian collusion investigation, saying that media actions during the investigations prove that journalism is dead.

“The media made four big claims then, all of which were proven false,” Hannity said. “Did the media retract their false claims or did social media platforms, like Facebook and Twitter, take them down? They tried to hide behind the guise of journalism, but that’s not going to work because journalism is dead and it died a long time ago. It is now nothing more than a witch hunt designed to bludgeon Donald Trump.”

John Oliver Takes Dig at Parent Owner Warner Bros. Discovery

Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav was also a leading force in canceling CNN’s venture into the streaming wars

Warner Bros. Discovery has made recent headlines for its decisions regarding HBO Max and canceling in-production films, including DC’s “Batgirl,” to get future tax write-offs.

During a segment discussing Monkeypox on Sunday, HBO’s “Last Week Tonight” host John Oliver decided to take a shot at their new parent company for its recent decisions.

“We let the vaccine sit unused on a shelf in our reserves like an expired Chobani or a $90 million movie on HBO Max,” Oliver said, referring to the “Batgirl” film. 

“By the way, hi there, new business daddy! Seems like you’re doing a really great job. I do get the vague sense that you’re burning down my network for the insurance money, but I’m sure that will all pass.”

Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav was also a leading force in canceling CNN’s venture into the streaming wars, pulling the plug on CNN+ less than a month after the service launched. 

“On CNN+, there was no message it was a business decision,” Zaslav told CNBC in May. “We looked at it and we looked at the data, the number of users they had spent an enormous amount of money trying to sell an independent product. 

“The subscribers weren’t there, the users weren’t there. We looked at it together. We had a chance to look at all the data and when we looked at the data, it was, the business wasn’t there.”

Last week, a verdict announced that InfoWars’ Alex Jones must pay $4.1 million in compensatory damages to the parents of 6-year-old Jesse Lewis, who was murdered in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

Fox News host Trey Gowdy tore into Jones on Sunday, recounting the horror of that day and the grieving process from the parent’s perspective in a lengthy monologue. 

“How does someone capable of exploiting the pain, of denying the obvious gain any audience in this country?” Gowdy said of Jones. “Why would anyone go on his show? On the list of despicable things to do – telling the parents of murdered children that their children really weren’t murdered ranks pretty high.”

“We shouldn’t need a jury, or a judge or a courtroom to condemn that kind of person and behavior. He tells lies for money and then when his own money is on the line, he admits the obvious. The only war he is waging is on the truth.”

Gowdy became the latest cable news media host to rip into Jones as MSNBC host Mehdi Hasan went after the talk show host and the Republican Party for giving him legitimacy to Jones by appearing on his program.

“Alex Jones should have been rejected by Republican leaders and lawmakers, but instead, he was shamefully embraced,” Hasan said.

This year, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow has transitioned from being a daily news host to a weekly timeslot on Mondays while she focuses on other projects as part of her new contract. 

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Maddow shed light on the behind the scene details that went into the discussions with NBCUniversal, resulting in a new contract that will see her stay with the company through the 2024 election and a reported $30 million per year salary. 

It wasn’t “some sort of, like, hostile, heated negotiation with NBC,” Maddow said. “What I asked for, and I realize it’s a really hard thing to ask for from a big corporate entity, is flexibility, fluidity, and forgiveness.”

“Like, I want us to handle this in a way that we don’t have to map every second of it. And I want my staff to all stay employed, and I want them to be able to shift between different types of projects, just as I am.”

Alex Wagner takes over for Maddow Tuesday through Friday, as her show debuts on Aug. 16 at 9 PM ET. 

“This is not a show where our hair is on fire, and we’re yelling past each other, and we’re creating these manufactured moments of tension,” MSNBC President Rashida Jones said regarding the show’s format under Wagner in a June interview with The New York Times

“I really want the takeaway from this show to be a better understanding of what’s happening in the world.”
