George W. Bush’s former director of the NSA and the CIA likened Fox News’ Sean Hannity to a Soviet-era apparatchik over the weekend.
“Hannity has entered the pantheon of a true propagandist,” Mr. Hayden continued. And his behavior reminds me of a conversation I had with a political office in the mid-1980s when I was an air attaché to Bulgaria. I asked this officer what truth was to him. He responded without hesitation, ‘Truth is what serves the party.’ And there you have it.”
"When I was watching the president, I was struck by how he seemed to understand the problems with conservative media more than any Republican does," said John Ziegler, a nationally syndicated conservative radio host and columnist for Mediaite.
"Drudge, Breitbart, Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, [Laura] Ingraham — those people are completely invested in another false narrative to cover up the first false narrative," he said, adding, "and if there's one thing I have ever learned in life, it is far easier to dupe people than to convince them that they have been duped."
