Poll question: Hannity vs. O'Reilly
I hate them both with so much passion, that my blood pressure increases 10X when I'm unfortunate enough to catch a glimpse of either of them. However, if you had to choose between the two, who would you pick? Don't say "none of the above" because that's booooooring!!!!

I'd have to go with Hannity. AS much as I hate him, I can say with confidence that he's MUCH more respectful of his guests, even when he disagrees with them.

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

2. honestly, I'd have to pick O'Reilly

4. Agreed.
O'Lielly occasionally criticizes Republicans. If by "occasionally" I mean "once every third blue moon". But that's still more than the whore Hanutty.

7. I agree
O'Reilly is correct or honest about 1% of the time; Hannity 0%. Hannity is also more smug, I find. O'Reilly is your run-of-the-mill asshole; Hannity is conservative-fellating piece of human filth.

10. I second that...
Hitnity is as whorish as they come. He's got an arrogant snotty smirk too that he loves to use...

Even I have to agree with Bill on some items, I hate to admit it.

But I know republicans who agree that what * and gang are doing is wrong. Question is, will they still vote for * and gang because they're somehow "the lesser of two evils"?!

21. Yeah,O'Reilly over Baby Jesus anyday....
For sure O'Reilly sucks,bullies guests blah,blah,blah but is somewhat less of a shill for Repugs than Hannity. I don't think O'Reilly try's to come off with this pure as the driven snow bullshit like Hannity.

Hannity is a phony who just parrots the RW mantra,never an original thought. He comes out with a new book every two months to take as much money as possible of the RW sheep. Colmes is just Hannity's prison bitch on his TV show,but thats Colmes fault.

22. Yeah
No contest. Hands down OReilly is my choice. At least he isn't ALWAYS a huge asshole. And he doesn't spend his entire show just shouting people down.

Sometimes he shows a human side, which indicates that O'Reilly's main problem is ignorance of what conservatives today believe. It seems as though he doesn't realize his party has been hijacked by a bunch of fascist assholes.

Sometimes.


But Hannity is always an asshole, is always bullying, and will always be a mouthpiece for the fascists and the ruling class.

6. Hannity is a blatant RNC whore
O'reilly is more insidious with his "No Spin" Crap.

So O'Reilly is worse.

11. Than O'Reilly
Without a doubt. At least Hannity lets them know he's a RW whore mouthpiece. O'Reilly PRETENDS to be "fair and balanced" which is WAAAAY more insulting.

13. O'Reilly
Edited on Mon Feb-16-04 11:25 AM by soundgarden1
is doing it for fun and money, typical American motivations. Hannity's doing it because he actually believes the bullshit he spews.

16. Shamity evolved from a Rush wannabe
to a blowhard in his own right. I used to listen to him as early as 2 years ago when he had just started to take off. For the very reason that he did seem respectful of his guests. Now, I can stomach him about as long as Rush...which is all of 2 seconds.

That's as nice as I'm willing to put it without using ethnic slurs.

23. O'Reilly I guess
Sometimes I turn on the O'Reilly factor and I agree with him, but that's rare. Like a few days ago, he was trashing some RWing pundit for going after John Kerry's Activist past, and I was thinking, "wow, I actually agree with him on this, what a shocker." O'Reilly is more tolerable to watch, but I at least give it to Sean Hannity for being honest with himself about being a Republican spin machine. O'Reilly seems to want to have it both ways.
