Ok, I’ve revised my argument against Sean Hannity. Mr. Hannity can say anything he wants on his show, per the 1st amendment. My issue is when he purposefully misrepresents quotes by elected government officials on his program. He regularly airs quotes from Democratic (and sometimes Republican) Senators and Congressmen. He does 2 things with the quotes he airs:
1. Incorrectly cites the date of the quote.
2. Edits the quote so it sounds like the representatvive supports Mr. Hannity’s position.
He purposefully misinforms his audience what US Government representatives have said to validate his narrative. I believe this infringes on the rights of those he quotes, and the rights of his audience to be well informed about government officials’ statements.
