Shallow Hal is my Pal.
FOX News Silent About Hannity's Neo-Nazi Connection
Reported by Ellen - May 3, 2008 - 249 comments
Earlier in the week, I wrote to several FOX News executives asking for their comments about Sean Hannity's connection to Neo-Nazi/white supremacist Hal Turner. Given Hannity's and FOX News' endless fascination with Barack Obama's associations, it's only fair that they explain the far more substantial and prolonged relationship between their prime time host and Turner. To date, we have received no response. But the attacks on Obama continue unabated.
In fact, Hannity's America pre-empted Hannity & Colmes last night (5/2/08) for the second time in two weeks, giving white-rights enthusiast Hannity a prolonged platform from which to smear Barack Obama without the inconvenience of Alan Colmes. Is it just a coincidence that this pre-emption occurred on the Friday before two important primaries (Indiana and North Carolina) just as the last pre-emption, featuring another Obama-smear-feat, occurred on the Friday before the Pennsylvania primary? I report, you decide.
Here is the list of people I contacted. I received the email addresses from a source who works for another media outlet. None of the emails bounced. Perhaps if enough of us write, FOX will explain why they feel it's OK to bash Obama 24/7 over his associations and yet have no problem with Hannity's dubious associations - which directly relate to the racial issues FOX News keeps raising in the campaign.
Tell them we deserve an explanation!
