Is The GOP The Party Of The Rich?
Obama increased his criticism of the Republican Party over the weekend for blocking jobless aid in a desperate attempt by Democrats to paint their opposition as the party of the rich. "Too often, the Republican leadership in the United States Senate chooses to filibuster our recovery and obstruct our progress. And that has very real consequences," Obama said in his weekly radio and Internet address. Sean bristled at Obama’s attack. “Keep in mind that Obama and the Democrats have received more campaign contributions from Hollywood, from BP, from Goldman Sachs, from Wall Street, than Republicans. It is this president who’s gotten more contributions from BP execs and managers than any other candidate."
Rickey Medlocke Of Lynyrd Skynyrd
Sean was surprised to look down at his call screening board this afternoon and see Rickey Medlocke waiting on hold! Medlocke is best known as the frontman/guitarist for the southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd. Skynyrd, as well as nearly half a dozen other musical acts, will be joining Sean on the road at this year’s Hannity Freedom Concert tour across America. Medlocke and the band recently returned from a European tour with Bret Michaels that went tremendously well. “We’ve had a great run with our latest album (God & Guns),” Medlocke told Sean. “We have a few more shows in Canada then we come back into the states and start with you Sean, and we’re looking forward to it!” To listen to Sean’s interview with Rickey on today’s show, click here.
Why The Silence At The Post?
This past Thursday, the Washington Post reported on the growing controversy over the DOJ’s decision to scale down a voter-intimidation case against members of the Black Panther Party. What took them so long? Sean explained the lack of reporting on this controversy demonstrates the rampant bias in today’s news media. Sean invited Brent Bozell, founder of the Media Research Center, to the program to discuss the issue. “There should have been an investigation into this,” Bozell told Sean, “this should have been on the front page of the Washington Post. They had one story this past Thursday and three passing references in all of 2009. That’s disgraceful, that’s not a news operation.” For more on this story click here.
