Fox News To Blame?
Sean was joined by Deneen Borelli, author of the popular book, “ Blacklash” and Zerlina Maxwell to discuss recent controversies surrounding President Obama’s claims that Fox News has deteriorated his reputation by “reporting 24/7” that he is a Muslim. “ “The President is complaining, according to David Corn’s book, that Americans believe he’s a Muslim because of Fox News’ coverage,” began Hannity, “This is not coming from Fox because no one can chronicle it, so where does this perception come from?” “He had the apology tour and that’s one thing that we can go on,” offered Borelli, “Apologizing for American exceptionalism is another thing that I can take issue with.” “I think if you look at guests on Fox News like Donald Trump who were bringing up Obama’s birth certificate issue, that was highlighted on Fox News,” offered Maxwell. There’s a political issue at hand here that’s caused a lot of this controversy, namely that President Obama is losing a significant portion of his white male supporters and he’s seemingly working hard to grasp why.

Jason Mattera, author of the book, “Hollywood Hypocrites”, joined Sean to talk about his new book highlighting the tales of Hollywood’s elite who preach one thing and do another. In Mattera’s book, he highlights the hypocritical actions of U2’s lead singer Bono who’s spent years asking the US Government to spend more money in philanthropic efforts while he’s hiding their millions. “I’ve always liked U2 so I was surprised to find out what a tax dodging hypocrite he is,” began Mattera, “While he’s lecturing us on why we should give more of our tax money away, U2 moved their operations from Ireland to Holland so they could cut the taxes they pay on music royalties virtually in half.” “Leftist celebrities are usually the biggest tax dodgers,” continued Mattera, “I don’t begrudge them trying to save their money.” “The way I sum this up is that liberals are only gener ous with other people’s money,” concluded Hannity, “Liberals only care about the environment when it’s not impacting their lifestyles or impacting flights on their leer jets or big SUVs.” This is a great read for anyone who needs some added ammunition when fighting liberal friends.

Fox News contributor, Stuart Varney stopped by the show to give his take on Congressman Paul Ryan’s latest budget proposal that was announced today. “We are facing record deficits,” started Hannity, “Paul Ryan is dealing with the structural problems we have in our economy but he’s proposing $5.3 trillion in cuts beyond Obama’s and this is only the beginning.” “This is a courageous proposal,” agreed Varney, “The Paul Ryan simplifies and reforms the tax code and saves Medicaid.” “If ever we needed a plan to deal with debt, it’s now,” piled on Varney, “President Obama’s budget plan will bring us up to $27 trillion in debt and that’s just unpatriotic.” For more on Congressman Ryan’s proposal, read this great summary from the LA Times, here.
