Democrats should demand Sean Hannity to stop misrepresenting their quotes on his show #dontmissquoteme

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.

Happy 4th!

This blog is for revealing the mistruths and contradictions coming out of Fox News in this hyperpartisan political environment. The way things are working out, Fox's narrative about The Russian Investigation, Roy Moore, Isreal's Capitol, and Donald Trump's accusers of sexual harassment is forcing America to choose. The two camps are mutually exclusive. Either you believe what Fox News is reporting, or you believe the MSM, or mainstream media (CNN, MSNBC). I want to expose the lies of comission, omission and twisting of truth Fox News regularly exhibits in their news reporting. Obviously I am biased. Everything in this blog is my opinion, cited by sources, which will mainly be Fox's reporter's own words.
