Where's the Keith Ellison love? To Hannity, on air: ‘You are the worst excuse for a journalist’

OMG, Sir, you're awesome!!

Hannity made the mistake of interviewing Rep. Ellison.


Within the first half a minute, Ellison had called Hannity "the worst excuse for a journalist I've ever seen." Hannity pretended he didn't hear it and demanded the congressman repeat himself, and we were off from there. Ellison called Hannity's work "yellow journalism," then said he:

is "deceptive";
has breached "every journalistic ethic I've ever heard of";
is "ridiculous";
is a "shameless ... Republican"; and
is "a shill for the Republican Party"

Oh hell, just watch it for yourself. AWESOME! Thank you, Rep Ellison!





On air with Hannity:

“You’re pretty good at it too.” Ellison said. “Quite frankly, you are the worst excuse for a journalist I’ve ever seen. It’s absurd that you — the worst.”

“What you just displayed was not journalism; it was yellow journalism. It wasn’t anything close to trying to tell the American people what’s really going on,” he said, accusing Hannity of using suggestive background music when playing video of Obama.


“Every journalistic ethic I have ever heard of was just violated by you,” Ellison said.

4. Oops, missed it!

I seem to be a day behind on most things these days. Sigh.....MS fatigue is kicking my ass and I do a little reading online, it exhausts me and off for yet another nap I go. Sounds great if you're overtaxed. Believe me, it ain't. For someone whose whole existence was using my once agile & awesome brain, now my morning crossword is enough to send me back to bed for an hour. I'm constantly playing catch-up!

My daughter campaigned for him when she was a student at the U of M.

17. I was in the same room as him when he got into a debate with a former Black Panther

Ellison attended a community event in which one of the speakers was a past member of the Black Panther Party and still very much supportive of its ideals, he did not like that Ellison had joined Congress rather than fighting against it. The Black Panther supporter very publically confronted Ellison, it was an intense moment but Ellison handled it very well and impressed nearly everyone in the room, even the Black Panther guy looked pretty humbled.

5. While Hannity sucks, has he ever claimed to be a journalist?

I always thought his show like Limbaugh's or even Thom Hartman's was political commentary. I don't think they consider themselves journalists. I know Hartman doesn't. He makes it very clear his show is not news, but commentary.

9. So that gives him liscence to lie?

They are what he called yellow journalists, they pretend to tell the news, but lie instead.

13. Agreed.

Since Hannity is not a journalist, I don't think he has any business being on a network that has "news" in its name.

6. To be fair...

I don't think ANYONE has mistaken Hannity for a journalist.

He's a propagandist. There are a few more syllables there, so I can partially understand the confusion.

8. Fox viewers do

They can't tell the difference between journalism and propaganda.

19. Weird that Ellison thinks Hannity is a journalist

Does he even pretend to be one?

20. Do you think Hannity will invite Ellison back on his show.

Hannity probably thought he was going to get Ellison on his knees begging to get away but Ellison was ready for Hannity. I am sure Shame will be crying about this for a long time.
