Jon Stewart Catches Sean Hannity lying about Teabagger Protest Numbers!

Quote:
After the 9-12 Tea Party protest a debate emerged regarding the crowd size estimates. Organizers of the event like Glenn Beck said that over 500,000 were at the rally while more "conservative" estimates like those from the Washington D.C. Fire Department had the crowd being a much smaller 60,000-70,000. Even the lower estimate is a respectable number of people for a protest on Capitol Hill and the event certainly received a lot of coverage from all the networks.

Last week at the invitation of Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) the Tea Party once again showed up at Capitol to protest and lobby Congress to reject the Democrat's health care reform plan. Once again afterward a debate would emerge regarding the size of the crowd that came to the event. Liberals claimed the crowd size was anywhere from 3,000-8,000 while Bachmann claimed that 20,000-45,000 attended. A more unbiased source in the Washington Post put the number at around 10,000.

Not surprisingly Fox News tended to support the larger of the crowd size estimates. Sean Hannity led this charge showing clips of a large protest around Capitol Hill. However as Jon Stewart points out in the video clip below Hannity was actually showing footage of the 9-12 Tea Party protest and trying to pass it off as footage of the Bachmann event. So in the end Hannity used one event with allegedly over-hyped crowd size numbers to promote another event with allegedly over-hyped crowd size numbers.

Watch the video in the link.

Also Hannity has since apologised and called it a mistake!! Yeah!! Righty ho!!

Like Washington Post is not a biased source! ahahahahahahahah! Now that is a joke.

Still, we had the same issue with the anti-war protests when they were happening, it is not the numbers that matter but that there is large crowds there period.

Now what this Sean did was wrong and stupid.

Ahhh!! But Fox News being a bunch of liars, tried to make out the support was much larger than it was!!

Its a good job Jon Stewart can point out the comedic value of the Fox News network!! No wonder the Obama admin wants to distant themselves from them when they can't even report the news straight!! lol

Read the article again, it makes the Washington post like a saint...I do not like articles that give sainthood to one or ANY media source. That is the point....everyone(except for a handful) lately on this board has favoritism when it comes to media sources, sadly.

That is like saying ALL Liberals are Communists and ALL conservatives believe in Creationism.

He says he is a comedian/satirist, yet accepts awards for news and journalism, when he does not show an ounce of any journalism at all. Its a sham, kind of like Obama receiving the Nobel Peace Award....

What the fucking hell are you on about??

Who gives a fuck about the Washington Post? Oh thats right you do!!

And the article claims the Washington Post claims there was 10,000 protesters? Do you have a better or more defined figure?

Of course not!! You are indeed a complete dipshit who completely misses the point. lol

Agreed, but it is no different to the sham you have been portraying on this forum, that you have some intelligence.

Tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands, that is not the point. Of course the silly progressives will always look at the numbers and who supposedly organize it, yet look the other way when their own corporate goons organize their rallies.
Then again most people who go to anti-big government or Obama rallies do not need to be paid by ACORN and Air America to go to the rally.

Sure thing.

2005 NCTE George Orwell Award for Distinguished Contribution to Honesty and Clarity in Public Language.
Underneath Honors section. And his Peabody Awards is also a journalism award. And under Television Critics Association Awards, he recieved a award for Outstanding Achievement in News & Information. Which is a line of crapola. Shall I go on?

I posted the article to explain the point which you missed.

FOX News lying and using footage taken back in Sept, to make the latest teabaggers event in Nov, look bigger than it was.

Look up, it's the point and it's flying over your head again!! lol

The George Foster Peabody Awards (Peabody Awards) are annual, international awards for excellence in radio and television broadcasting.

In Dragons world = Radio & Television Award = Journalism Awards!!

Spectacularly and stunningly stupid Dragon.

I'm going to give you this one! Not because it's a journalism award, but an award for news and information so therefore journalistic. They are not journalist but if Fox News did their job correctly instead of lying, then maybe one day they might win it! lol

No, I certainly don't and I mean who gives a fuck if The Daily Show were getting awards for their journalism?

They do a much better job than presenting the news than Fox News.

Both are comedies, but while one believes it's a serious news channel, the other ones knows it's comedy news channel!
