Screenshot of Sean Hannity attacking Jon Stewart on his Fox News show. April 22,2014
Thin-skinned, much? Sean Hannity, chief Cliven Bundy booster and armed rebellion instigator, doesn't like it when people point out that his champion is pretty much just a crook. Like Jon Stewart did.
So the law isn’t on Bundy’s side, the court isn’t on Bundy’s side, even the Nevada state constitution, which Bundy claims to abide, isn’t on his side—who the hell is on Bundy’s side? […] Hannity!
Hannity fires back (it was probably the bit about Hannity making Glenn Beck the voice of reason that sets him off). Note that Hannity doesn't respond with any, you know, substance. Just with a pure, mean-spirited personal attack.
Sean Hannity went after Jon Stewart on Tuesday night, accusing him of being a "comedic hack" and a shill for the Obama administration.

The Fox News host said Stewart is "kind of obsessed with this program" and that he and those at Comedy Central "kind of are the chief apologists for the Obama administration."

That's not new for Hannity. He's been trying to change the subject of his untenable support for Bundy by attacking critics, like MSNBC's Al Sharpton and Ed Schultz in the same personal, nasty vein. Of course, personal attacks are pretty much all he's got for a defense of his asinine efforts to foment violence. He sure doesn't have truth, justice and the American way for back-up.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
