NBC’s Selective Patriotism At The U.S. Open
Sean opened Monday’s show by discussing this past weekend’s U.S. Open golf tournament which saw Rory McIlroy, a twenty-two year old sensation, win by a large margin. Sean, as well as many viewers, missed the beginning of the NBC telecast in which the network edited out the phrase “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance - Twice! The first time, NBC omitted the phrased “under God, indivisible,” and the second time, they cut the phrase, “one nation under God, indivisible.” Sean was stunned. “How does such a production piece at the opening segment of the U.S. Open, edited in such an offensive way, not get caught by an executive involved in this program? I just don’t understand. These sports programs have massive staffs. This wasn’t an accident. This was an intentional edit,” Sean steamed. NBC later issued an on-air apology Sunday for omitting the from the Pledge of Allegiance. Take a look at the op ening production piece in which NBC edited the Pledge of Allegiance right here.
Focus Group Presses Sen. Kyl on Economy
On a special episode of “Hannity,” Sean invited pollster Frank Luntz, a focus group and Senator Jon Kyl (R-AZ) to a lively debate on the economy. The focus group first asked why the American people should trust the Republican approach to the budget. “We've got a big problem. A lot of politicians are not being straight with the American people. Our government is broke. We've to a $14 trillion debt. We have to borrow 42 cents of every dollar that the federal government spends, from somebody. Unemployment is now over nine percent again,” Kyl explained. “There are some people who believe that we need to borrow and tax and spend even more money that the first big stimulus bill did not spend enough. I disagree with that. I think the way to prosperity is to stop wasteful Washington spending.” You can watch this intriguing debate by clicking here.
David Limbaugh: “Dems Don’t Have A Record To Run On”
Sean invited David Limbaugh and Doug Schoen to the program and discussed Howard Dean’s comments at a political convention this past weekend. Dean blasted the conservative grassroots Tea Party movement in his speech to the Netroots Nation convention in Minneapolis, saying their values “sure aren’t the values of America today.” “This is really pathetic,” Limbaugh said to Sean. “The Democrats don’t have a record to run on so the only thing they can do is to attempt to alienate different groups in hopes to divide Republicans. They accuse Republicans of hate when in fact the left is the group that basically authors hate in this country. Listen to Sean’s entire conversation with Schoen and Limbaugh right here.
