On Tuesday’s episode, Jay Sekulow said, “The depth of corruption that led to this investigation and that frankly continues to permeate this investigation is unprecedented.” The very next night, Rudy Giuliani was Hannity’s featured guest in a lengthy segment where they repeated the same (false) propaganda talking points over and over again: phony dossier, Hillary paid for it, investigators are corrupt. You can watch that clip below, but it largely repeats the same talking points over and over and over, putting a phony conspiracy front and center to the Fox News audience. Again. Giuliani brags of his connections to everyone involved in the case, calls James Comey a pathological liar (project much?), and says he will live in shame for having given Comey his first big legal job.
But has Fox News ever disclosed the fact that Hannity reportedly talks to Trump every single day? Or that he frequently dines with Trump? Or that he loaned his private jet to Donald Trump, so he could fly out Newt Gingrich for a VP audition during the election? Or that they are crafting the content and messaging of his show together every single day?
It’s clear that Sean Hannity and Fox News are using his television and radio broadcasts to run a nightly propaganda program for their audience. And their audience is dangerously eating it up.
To recap this “corruption”, here’s where we are:
The most laughable part of it all is that this big, anti-Republican conspiracy resulted in Hillary Clinton losing the Electoral College. Seems like if there was a conspiracy to stop Donald Trump, the very real pre-election Russian investigation would’ve been publicly announced. Yes, David Corn and Mother Jones were on it, but James Comey didn’t publicly comment on it, and the New York Times said it was a big nothingburger.
