Defending Hannity

Written by admin on . Posted in Opinion and Column.

To the Editor:

I enjoyed Ben Krull’s column, “Dissecting My Fox Fix” (May 20), with modest amusement. But I have a beef with one sentence: “Most of what I hear on Hannity’s show is lies and misrepresentations, double-talk and hyperbole.”

I can describe that wordage in two words: bovine residue.

Look, I’m a regular viewer of Hannity’s TV show and yes, he leans to the right—nothing wrong with that. But he always has liberals on the program to express their views. A little bird tells me that Mr. Krull is sorry he let that “garbage” slip into his column. I would expect folderol from a 14-year-old high school sophomore, but not from a seasoned and respected essayist as Mr. Krull.

So I ask readers who have not turned on at 9 p.m. on the Channel to watch his show for as little as two or three evenings. I doubt very much that you will agree with Mr. Krull’s twaddle, but I could be wrong. You decide.
