TDS: Stewart Catches Lie, Hannity Apologizes

A few days ago Jon Stewart noticed something peculiar about Sean Hannity's coverage of Representative and free-range cougar Michelle Bachmann's anti-health care reform rally in Washington, DC:

Caught in his lie, Hannity offered the following apology and explanation:


Now call me a cynical bastard but based on the dozens and dozens of examples of FOX News making "inadvertent" mistakes like this I doubt the veracity of Hannity's claim but at least he somewhat copped to it.

I don't think there's any "somewhat" about it. That guy stepped up to the plate and copped to it. Most people wouldn't have addressed the allegations at all.

I say "somewhat" one L because I doubt that the "mistake" was truly inadvertent.

BD said...

That's a crapload of somewhat in Hannity's statement. Hell, they even lied about the number of attendees...

Exactamundo, BD. This guy makes $20 million a year as a serial liar. I'm not apt to believe much of anything he says, no matter how conciliatory.

Oh yeah, I definitely know that the incident was intentional on someone's part, but I will give him credit where it's due for addressing Stewart at all.
