*This is a developing story. More to come.
by Ryan Nelson, the Fox Hawk
I have a working theory about what goes on ‘behind the scenes’ at Hannity on Fox: everything on Sean Hannity’s eponymous show is scripted. EVERYTHING (of course there are non-scripted moments, but I am saying that many of the statements made by Hannity and guests that are meant to seem ‘off the top of their heads’ are, in fact, scripted).
From Sean’s opening monologue (obviously) to the supposed ‘improvised rants’ by Hannity and his guests to literally ‘the interviews’ Mr. Sham-ity ‘conducts.’
I have noticed in recent days that both Hannity and his guests have made what are essentially teleprompter reading errors when they are speaking (or yelling) on his show. Teleprompter reading errors happen when the reader pronounces a word incorrectly because they have not read the whole word, as it has not completely scrolled up on the teleprompter screen. These verbal mistakes have been happening more frequently in the last week (I told you I watch a LOT of Fox).
Gee, I wonder if there’s anything that has occurred in the past week that might have put extra pressure on Donald Trump, ergo Sean Hannity? Oh, ah, let me see…ah yes, the Helsinki summit with Putin?
After Trump’s abysmal kowtowing to his Soviet handler, Vladmir V. Putin, everyone, including Republicans in the House and Senate, and to my own shock, Fox News hosts (Trish Reagan, Niel Cavuto, Bret Hume, the Fox and Friends gang…), have roundly condemned Trump’s performance. Everyone except Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson, that is.
I have said this before, and here it is again: when the pressure is on, Sean Hannity makes mistakes. So when many of the people that typically apologize or dismiss Trump’s missives come out against him, Hannity really feels the pressure, as he has isolated himself in Trump’s corner by advancing the ‘witch hunt’ narrative more than anyone else, except of course Strump himself.
Oh yeah, and Sara A. Carter, Fox’s only ‘journalist’ whose stories are so thinly sourced that not even Fox News’ website will publish her stories, is also in the ‘defend Trump at all costs, no matter if he is a traitor’ club. Seriously, Ms. Carter publishes all her ‘breaking news’ on her personal website. She is represented by no publisher.
So back to my point, I have seen both Hannity and Sara A. Carter make what could only be described as reading mistakes more and more frequently in the last week, since the Helsinki debacle.
Example: while Sean Hannity was ‘ranting’ about the lies from the ‘fake news’ media, he said a word I hadn’t heard before: propo. After Hannity said ‘propo,’ he paused for a moment then went on with his word: propaganda. Who else would say the beginning of a word as a word, then go on to restate the whole word correctly? Someone reading from a teleprompter, that’s who.
