Hannity Tops Misinformer List

Media Matters, a useful web monitor of right-wing sloth and misinformation, has named Fox News blabber Sean Hannity as its "2008 Misinformer of the Year," an award the baby-faced blowhard richly deserves. 

As the Media Matters site documents in considerable detail, Hannity is the master of the half-truth, routinely but purposely leaving out information that runs counter to his preconceived ideas about the evils of all things remotely liberal or centrist.

It's not fact-based opinion that Hannity spouts every day, it's full-bore intellectual dishonesty. On the other hand, no one ever accused Hannity of being intellectual, or even especially thoughtful. He's not. 

The man's a hack. His unofficial motto: "Don't confuse me with the facts. My mind is made up."

And HANNITY is losing colmes at the end of the year. So much for fake balance.

It doesn't say much good about the U.S. that this twerp has the following he does.

I'm not running for anything, so I can just say it: we have a lot of stupid people in this country.

Maybe Obama knows what he is doing with Rick Warren (he probably does,) but the last thing I personally want to see is another fat, intolerant Baptist preacher plastered all over the airwaves.
