Sean Hannity On NSA Surveillance, Then And Now (by Media Matters)

http://mediamatters.org/blog/2013/06/12/sean-hannity-on-nsa-surveillance-then-and-now/194437

Sean Hannity is warning that data mining and surveillance are "very clear violation of the Fourth Amendment," a drastic change for the Fox News host, who was a loud defender of National Security Agency surveillance during the Bush administration.

Media Matters offers a look at Hannity on NSA surveillance, then and now.

2. Heres just one of the trail balloons folks.........

What ever role GOP co. may or may not have had in this, at the moment they flatly do not know how to use it to their advantage.
And use it to their advantage they will.
Just as sure as they would have used the Boston bombing or Benghazi to their advantage had the NSA been put on a very short leash when Obama first took office.
Other GOP balloonists might be Sarah Palin, Allen West, Ted Cruz and so forth.
What will they have to spin?
One thing I am certain of.
Yup, he's going to say it again.

Somewhere Karl Rove is laughing his ass off.

20. I'd like to know how the President plans to turn this to OUR advantage.

I think your assessment is correct. Both parties seem shellshocked. They don't seem to know how to respond, but I certainly hope Democrats are thinking of ways to use this mess to our advantage. I am much less worried about what the Republicans are trying to do with it. I'd like to see the Democratic Party act, and not just react.

That's sad.

I have been trying to educate some of my family members.

They are not very political.

Thank goodness none of them watch Fox.

28. They'll point to Dan Rather

he lost his job over one inaccurate report on Bush, so if Hannity is so dishonest, why is he still on the air? Have they used that one at all?

Political and Hot Topics entertainment.

When I want the facts, I turn to;

Jeremy Scahill
Glenn Greenwald
Robert Greenwald
Matt Taibbi
Noam Chomsky
Howard Zinn (deceased)
Chris Hedges
Richard Wolff (economist)
John Pilger
Greg Palast
Michael Moore
Dr. Cornel West
Travis Smiley
Amy Goodman
Juan Gonzalez
Sharif Abdel Kouddous (exemplary coverage of the Egyptian protest in 2011)
Naomi Kline
Naomi Wolf
Tim Pool (Livestream)

2nd level

Cenk Uygur (he comes across as passionate and sincere
Kieth Olbermann ( I MISS him !!!!!)
Rachel Maddow (she doesn't have free rein at MSNBC)
Chris Hayes

If I am in the mood for political comedy or entertainment I like;

Jon Stewart
Stephen Colbert
Bill Maher ( I think he has been slipping as of late)
George Carlin (deceased)
Bill Hicks (deceased)

P.S. I left a lot of 2nd level, political comedy and entertainment selections off the list. I am a bit of a political junkie.

14. Disclaimer 2

Kouddous is part of the Democracy Now team.

He is Egyptian but lived in the U.S.

He moved back to Egypt to cover the Egyptian uprising.

Tim Pool covers the Occupy Wall Street movements, on Tim Pool's LiveStream. He would livestream for 18 or 20 hours straight. There is another man by the name of Vlad that also covers OWS. They are both in Istanbul Turkey now.

No, they are not related.

I would place Thom Hartmann on my level 2 list.

I left out Bill Moyers.

He should be listed with the cream of the crop.

24. One that you left off

and you really should check out her writing, especially about "W" (boy, does she EVER have a lot to say about him!!!) is Molly Ivins.

Sadly, she'd be on your "deceased" list ( )- but tons of great stuff to read and it still applies today.

a clue of what he said from day to day. There is just no fun in ridiculing the intellectually challenged.

Do you think people like this EVER realize what they are? Or do you think they already know, they just don't care because they are being paid?
