A LITTLE MORE BAD NEWS FOR HANNITY, ET. AL.

I'd really like to know what Hannity's response is:
Ex-CIA director says ‘Fox News has jumped the shark’ and abandoned ‘conservatism’
By Douglas Ernst - The Washington Times - Monday, October 24, 2016

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.”
Others have also noted that the Noise Machine is full of shit:
"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."

Why are you taking the word of an NSA/Patriot guy who has threatened freedom fighters Assange and Snowden and who indeed lied profusely about the NSA's own activities? That's your kind of respectable conservatism?

Really, Steve, I'm not sure what impresses you about what a president who lied about renegotiating NAFTA, then supported the TPP has to say about Trump in these regards.
Obama has some blind support among the blacks whose standard of living he has done little to help, but that's the same kind of naieve ethnocentrism that the GOP white working class showed when it tolerated the McCains and the W Bushes betrayal of their interests. Which they are no longer doing by supporting Trump.
Obama's not a bullshit artist? Surely you jest.
