On Monday, Fox News host Sean Hannity asked the millions of viewers of his show to use their social media platforms to “fight back” against the “fake news” aimed to demean President Donald Trump.
“Now over the past few weeks the Trump administration has been ramping up one of the most effective tactics for combating all the fake news,” Hannity began. “They’ve been speaking out on the very programs that spew the misinformation and lies about the president and standing up to these pundits and so-called journalists who treat the White House with hatred and disdain. I’m lovin’ this fight back.”
“Finally fighting back,” he exclaimed, “and members of the Trump administration they’re beginning to shine a bright light on these dark corners of this fake news industry, and now thanks to social media you can too!”
“All right I’m not encouraging you to get in your neighbor’s face,” Hannity stated, “like former President Obama did, liberals would say I’m calling for violence. But you can call out fake news right at the source.”
He added, “For example, you can tell fake news Jake Tapper exactly what you think of his interview with Anthony Scaramucci. You can do it on Twitter.”
“Or you can message Brian Stelter,” Hannity said, “Humpty Dumpty, Jeff Zucker’s stenographer, about his ‘Russia Russia Russia’ obsession, and lack of desire to be fair and balanced and point out Hillary Uranium One and felonies she committed.”
“And, of course, you have liberal Joe calling the president a schmuck, a goon, a thug, and mentally unhinged,” he continued. “Great job, NBC, and if you don’t think those remarks are appropriate, just send them a tweet.”
“And over there, of course, you have Mika, helping out,” Hannity asserted, referring to Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski. “The over-the-top feigning outrage every day, her disgusting treatment of Kellyanne Conway. Very despicable.”
“You want to take it to the next level?” he questioned. “Write a message to their bosses. Send a tweet over to Zucker over at fake news CNN, or Andy Lack from NBC fake news.”
“Right now the media is living in their little bubble,” he descibed. “It is our job to remind them that there’s an America way outside of New York, D.C., Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Tonight, technology is now making it possible for you to take your point of view directly to the source and show America’s elites that the forgotten men and the forgotten women voted for this agenda, and they want it completed, and for them to stop lying to you.”
Hannity ended, “Take to the social media, I think you can have a positive impact.”
