What Do You Think Of Sean Hannity?

Tue May 11, 2004 8:31 am

I've seen Limbaugh, Franken, O'Reilly, etc frequently mentioned here...

...but what about another powerful polarizing force in political media: Sean Hannity?



For those of you who've never heard of him: he's the conservative co-anchor of FoxNews' Hannity & Colmes (the highest rated debate program on cable television ever) as well as ABCNews' The Sean Hannity Show, which is 2nd only to Rush in terms of average listeners nationwide.

If you've never heard of him/his shows... and you'd like to listen to his radio program to get an idea, it can be heard for free (24hrs) HERE.



Your thoughts?

Don't care for him on the radio, and I think he gets a little over-zealous at times on t.v. But he hates Liberals,.... and although I can't say I have ever "hated" anyone, Liberals would be right up there on the list.

We get him here in ATL and he's a co-hort of Neil Boortz..of sorts. I like Boortz even though I don't always agree with him...at least he makes you think. On the other hand, Hannity tends to be shall we say.... Somewhat Sanctimonious. But, I have been known to give a listen every now and again. He kind of reminds me of the Dr. Laura of political discussions.  Big grin

I wouldn't call him the same hole  Smile as 'Fly does, but he sure is too full of himself and displayingly (is that a word?) loves to hear said self yatter before anyone can answer a question. Personally, I've got to the point of boredom with most of the political shows (and Hannity and Colmes gets high marks on my boredom list, even though they purport to give "equal" time). Perhaps the worse TV guys on my list are Carville and Begala who seem to be in competition with Hannity's increasingly sophomoric style.

Maybe I'm just getting bored with TV...I don't even like "American Chopper" as much as I used to. Regards...Jack

The only radio station I listen to in the car is NPR (National Public Radio).
Always somehting new and interesting on NPR.
The AM radio loudmouths just spout out stupidity and hatred. THere is nothing of value or inteligence on the politically biased conservative stations.
I just want in depth unbias presentation of what's going on in the world. That's why I prefer Michael Krasny, Don Gonyea, Terry Gross and Bob Woodward.

I don't know about that CB.... Boortz isn't exactly a card carrying Democrat, by any means, but true he's not AS conservative as Hannity. He's more middle-of-the-road and not by Libertarian standards.He tends to lean more to the right. Suffices to say, they tend to sit on the same side of the bench more often than not. Some people think Hannity is the best thing since sliced bread. I just don't happen to join in that consensus, that's all.  Big grin

I can listen to him only for a few minutes before I become ill. Its funny to listen to him spin things into being liberals fault. Anything bad that happens is the liberals fault. And if he can't blame it on the liberals he just ignores it or starts talking about Clinton.... He's pretty predictable.

He's a a$$ that wears blinders like I've never seen before...and I'm conservative. On the other hand you have Alan Colmes who is slightly more engaging than the tie he wears. Sean Hannity is the epitome of unwavering support for anything the Republicans do, which is fine if you're into 100% partisan politics, but you'd think they'd get a better opposing force than the mundane Alan Colmes, who just bumps along and never really has a point.

Maybe strange for a European but I adore Sean Hannity, he is my voice of hope in the European liberal hell ! I listen to his program on through the internet EVERY single day, for three hours  Laugh out loud
For a while I was able to tune in to the Fox News Channel too, so I watched the "Hannity and Colmes" every evening after the O'reilly factor, but the cable host discontinued fox (it was eight months ago). Now I can only get CNN and crap like that, haven't even watched TV since then.
If I weren't able to listen to conservative American talk radio I do not know what I would do, because I hate all the liberal stuff that is going on here on this continent, I would probably move.

Yeah, maybe Maverick has identified a point in my subconscious...if Alan Colmbes would open up and really take a stand, it would undoubtably be a better debate. Do we think Colmbes is a conservative "plant?". Probably not, but he's also probably not the man to be sitting across from Mr. yakkety-yak. Regards...Jack

Colmes is pretty boring, that's for sure.

O'Reilly is a lot better than either of them, at least on tv. I've never heard Hannity or O'Reilly on the radio.

Concordeboy; I don't know who I'd recommend. You mentioned Franken whom I've only heard a couple of times for a couple of minutes (sleep rapidly ensues). I only suggest they get somebody with a little more power of presence to balance out Hannity's non-stoppedness (another new word?).

As much as I am cool to Begala, he might be a better $$ bet? Hey, Don Imus loves Paul Begala, so he's got to be better? (Now that I think about it, I believe Imus likes Colmbes, too). Regards...Jack

I used to listen to him a lot on my way to work. As far as conservative talk radio goes I like him better than Rush Limbaugh, I like him less than Michael Savage.
My favorite talk radio personality: Art Bell, I still like coast to coast with George Norrey but Art is still great on the weekends. It's all just entertainment anyway.
I do also listen to a lot of NPR. It happens to be on the classical music station here in Cincinnati and I like classical music. I'm not informed about classical music, but I like listening to it.

Savage is more social than political... as evident in the [self-admitted!] fact that he cannot let go of the '50s:

...Niggers couldn't date perfect pure white goddesses

I like Hannity a lot more than I like Limbaugh. Hannity's radio show is a lot more entertaining and Hannity is a lot more upbeat too. He's a real smart guy and the books he has written have been great reads. Nothing is funnier than watching Susan Estrich squirm and stammer while Hannity grills her on Hannity and Colmes.

As for Michael Savage, he's probably my favorite political guy to listen to on the radio. His shows and his demeanor his hilarious, although I don't agree with some of what he says, a lot of times he's right on the money.

Savage is more social than political... as evident in the [self-admitted!] fact that he cannot let go of the '50s:

...Niggers couldn't date perfect pure white goddesses
......Faggots were beaten mentally/physically into suppressing what they are at all costs

Hey ConcordeBoy, why don't you read one of his books, or actually read up about the guy before saying he's a racist, which he's not at all. In fact, he used to be ultra-liberal, and worked as a social worker and a school teacher in NYC before he became a conservative. Geez, throw around the racist label some more, Alpha1 Jr.

The reason why liberal talk radio never succeeds is because its just too boring, no one wants to hear whine after whine 24/7, and besides that most registered Democrats don't even listen to news/talk radio.

National Boring Radio is garbage. I mean, its like an insomniacs dream.

One from Ann:

"Liberals always claim to know exactly what to do as soon as it's too late. After Muslims attack with airplanes, they want to investigate flight schools. After Muslims attack with shoe-bombs, they want to investigate shoes. After a Muslim introduces E. coli into New York's water supply, liberals will be enraged that Muslim immigrants taking pictures of New York water treatment plants weren't investigated more aggressively — as soon as they are done blaming Bush for not stopping the attack amid their caterwauling about the detention of Muslim immigrants. Liberals are the only known species whose powers of reasoning are not improved by the benefit of hindsight. Not only are they always fighting the last war, in most cases they're surrendering.

LOL....how true.

Dude, I cannot in good conscience even begin to consider "taking" anyone who thinks Dick Cheney is sexy (yup, she said it).

I read Ann Coulter's columns regularly and find her shrill, catty, hopelessly pre-menstrual screeching very hard to take.

Intelligent conservatives like George Will will sometimes challenge readers with provocative thoughts (see today's column in the Washington Post), but Ann is all about the psychodrama and self-aggrandizement disguised as political commentary.

Hannity would be more effective if he could at least "appear" to be aware of both sides of an issue - even if he consistently comes down on the side of the right.

However, he just isn't that bright of a guy. If anyone gets a little too convincing with their arguments, he starts interrupting them quicker and quicker so that no one can even finish a sentence. (This is straight out of O'Reilly's school for the ill-prepared, but the way). I would be far more impressed if he was capable of letting someone make a clear point - and then neutralizing it with a short, concise retort. But he isn't on that level at all.

And just how lowdid they have to go to find Colmes, so that Hannity could get his points made? The guy is a virtual deaf-mute on this show. But then again, Mr. Murdoch is signing his paycheck.

(PS - that photo of him is about 15 years old, back in the day when wool pin-stripe suits were only 10 years out of fashion).
