"'You are the worst excuse for a journalist I've ever seen'"
In an epic interview for the ages, a Democratic congressman unloaded on Fox News anchor Sean Hannity Tuesday night with a non-stop verbal assault on the popular host.
Hannity opened up a segment on President Obamas tactics regarding budget issues by saying, Our alarmist in chief, President Panic himself, he did not feel the need to be at the White House today, nor did he think it was important enough to visit Capitol Hill and try to hammer out a bipartisan solution to the mess that he himself has put the country in.
He showed a montage of recent Obama remarks with a soundtrack of ominous music behind it.
Hannity then introduced U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., the first Muslim ever elected to Congress, who took little time to insult the programs host.
Quite frankly, you are the worst excuse for a journalist Ive ever seen, Ellison told Hannity at the outset.
What you just displayed was not journalism. It was yellow journalism. It wasnt anything close to try to tell the American people whats really going on. Its just shocking to me.
Yellow journalism? responded Hannity. To play Obama in his own words is yellow journalism?
Ellison tried to label Hannity as a champion for Republican causes, saying, You are a shill for the Republican Party and you alibi them constantly. You alibi them 100 percent of the time.
I am not a registered Republican. Im a registered conservative, Hannity explained.
At one point that became somewhat comedic, Ellison told Hannity, You said I could rant, and I am.
Ive given you plenty of time to rant......

An insult from Keith Ellison should be worn as a badge of honor. Did Ellison embrace Islam when he was in prison?
This segment was horrible last night. I am surprised Hannity didn’t just cut off the mic or completely shut-down the interview. I would have, but Hannity didn’t and I think it showed Ellison as the useful idiot he is...
Watch the video!
Hannity-bashers pause for just a moment:
He let Ellison make a muzzie fool of himself, proving that when someone is self-destructing then by all means get out of his way!
This was classic rope-a-dope followed by meltdown, & Hannity didn’t have to lift a finger.
An angry, outraged Muslim. What are the odds?
Hahaha! And Ellison ISN’T a shill for the leftard, commie bastard, Islam-loving Democratic Party? Hahaha! That’s rich! So rich!
Yes! We went to the outrage seminar presented by Keith Ellison!!!
Brain dead Hannity a journalist? That is like saying his equally braindead competitor Maddow is a journalist.
RE “’I am not a registered Republican. Im a registered conservative, Hannity explained. “
Oh brother, who writes this stuff for Hannity?
Just watch one segment of the Ted Knight show. As long as the Knight Factor is around, Hannity can only be second. A poor second.
they’re ramping up daily
something’s going to break before 4 years are up
Democrats simply yell over anything anyone says. Ellison did not allow Hannity to even ask a question. Ellison is an asshole. Period.
obama's fellow-muslim is so used to the behavior of "journalists" of his leftist ideology acting as they do in the MSM he has come to believe -- like so many of his fellow American leftists and third-world brethren of the religion of terror -- that expressing strong opinion makes for good "journalism".
Ellison represents the Minnesota 5th District (Mpls) which has historically been kook leftist.
Ventura won in a three way race where the Democrat was certifiably nuts and the Republican had been a Donk until a few months earlier. Ventura sounded conservative on the campaign but went biserk and threatened to kill a Star-Tribune reporter.
Franken won by ballot box stuffing. They kept counting the ballots found in curious locations (the trunk of a car comes to mind) until Franken won.
I disagree. Letting this fool rant on the Fox network, the biggest audience this deluded idiot has probably ever had only emboldened him and his low-information constituents.
Minnesota certainly elects some bizarre characters...Ellison, Franken, Ventura.
Hannity spent about five minutes too long on this juvinile delinquent.
How about later on when he had Tamara Holder on with Bernard McGurk (?) carrying on about Mayor Bloomburg with Holder ranting about how “all Republicans are fat (and “Southern”)?
It’s episodes like this that cause me to just switch the dial. I turned Hannity off on Sirius Radio during the Ellison rant, and I switched him off the TV during the Holder diatribe.
I did catch the segment last night and Ellison acted like a complete jerk. He was childish, very ill-informed, and is a complete embarrassment to the State he represents. His ghetto antics were exactly what is wrong with this country.
And now a word from the Communist Islamic Congressional Caucus.....
During a House Financial Services Committee hearing Tuesday on the budget, two Democrats complained after House Financial Services Committee chairman Jeb Hensarling instructed that two monitors in the hearing room display a real-time running national debt clock.
California Rep. Maxine Waters and Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison both issued complaints about the displays, according to video of the hearing.
Clearly it is a political prop designed to message ideologically, Ellison said.
Either that or Bubba ~ you know how they do
Damn, I missed that segment. Another muslim freak gone wild.. what were the odds?
Both areas are equally infested with far leftwingtard politicians and voters.
Seriously folks, if you drill down through the bluestate haze to the precincts in this country, 100% of the areas with higher than average mosquito infestations also vote for Democrats.
Urban areas otherwise have higher than average mosquito accounts simply because humans create numerous pools of fresh water where mosquitos can breed.
Installation of modern septic systems throughout the American South enabled Republicanism to arise and drive out the old Democrat way of life.
——The “honorable” felon forgot -—
I would argue to the contrary.
Like all Democrats that come on Fox, his agenda would be predetermined. That is, he was merely reciting his talking points
There is only one real question........ did he make the talking points or were they handed out from DNC propaganda central.
Gobbels rule: There must be only one source of propaganda
Hannity does not handle nutcases very well, IMO. I turn off his radio show when one calls, and Sean tries to argue with him.
THAT is the reason I no longer subject myself to that kind of idiocy.

The MUZZIE can’t stand hearing the TRUTH!
“...the biggest audience this deluded idiot has probably ever had only emboldened him....”
Hmm... OK, so Mohammed Achmed al-Ellison is going to go on getting louder, stupider, rantier, & jihadi-er.
Is that a problem?
Hannity has mentioned on his radio show several times that in New York State, you can register as a conservative, and Sean claims that he has done exactly that.
That’s where the “I am a registered conservative” comment came from.
Democrats can’t defend their actions, they just rant at the people who criticize them. How about the public expect some rationality from their politicians. The Democrats are employing exactly the same tactics I saw on the college campus back in the ‘60’s.
More interesting ~ EPA seems to be aware of the relationship and has begun making it very difficult to use effective proven means to eradicate mosquito infestations. Then, there's NIH ~ Obama's first ObamaKKKare move was to slash their epidemiological funds to the bone.
I think 'they' know, and that's more than creepy!
Usually, when a Moose Limb is involved, it’s the other person who loses his head.
Thanks, however that means he doesnt vote in the GOP primary.
The humor party of this is that Hannity is a GOP hack who seems to copy talking points from other radio shows, and this sounds like another one.
Hannity called for Bush bailout of GM very early 2009.
On his show Hannity pushed Steele for RNC chairman .
Hannity LOVEs McCain and Grahmnesty.
This supports my point that ‘conservative’ is way over used label. Reminds me of 'The Force' in Star Wars.
“Ellison, Franken, Ventura.”
Larry, Moe & Curly are/were light-years ahead of those 3 cretins.
“Oh brother, who writes this stuff for Hannity? “
On which issue is he a liberal?
Hannity should have asked her when michael moore changed to the Republican party.
Yep if the pubs don’t start daily slamming obamma and his minions as liars who are trying to destroy our country we have lost..the truth works all else is bs..
liberal? What are you talking about liberal? That word is not in the comment you responded to.
See : #39 for a list,
Epic??? I turned off Fox for the night in the middle of thie “epic”.
Keith Ellison is proof that one should.....
“keep his mouth shut and be thought a fool, than to open it and remove all doubt”.
I turn the station when Hannity uses his standard fall back reply: Oh that’s right, Republicans want dirty air, dirty water, etc...I just scream in my car when I hear it...like nails on a chalkboard. He just repeats that crap every day.....
I switch the station on the car, or on the TV, every time they start talking over each other. It seems that I am doing that more and more often.
