They have the audacity to call themselves journalists but they are nothing of the sort. They are right wing commentators that are out to advance the conservative cause. These people are nothing but crackpots. The show is so polarizing. The beginning of the show has a picture of Sean Hannity and it shows the word conservative and Republican. Then it shows a picture of Alan Colmes and it says liberal and then Democrat. While there are a lot of conservative Republicans and liberal Democrats that is not always true and it is awful that those sides should be so polarized, but that is all FOX news does.
The show is so one sided. I seriously doubt that Alan Colmes is a real liberal he really doesn't act like someone that is so liberal. And the guests they bring on are silly and stupid. They bring on these ultra conservative radio talk show people that do not present any facts but just bash liberals and do their best Rush Limbaugh impersonations, the best example of which is Mike Gallagher who is so far out there.
The show is not news it is entertainment, it masks itself as news but there is little news in it as these people are out to entertain you and not to inform you. FOX news has lied on many occasions, the most notable of which was a supposed military expert hired by FOX news that was never in the military as well as a false report in March of 2002 that American troops were attacking Iraq. And Sean Hannity has very few arguments to back up his beliefs all he does is insult and cut at his opponents. He offers no facts but her offers plenty of insults and put downs as many of his conservative guests do.
I call Sean Hannity Dan Fielding and Alan Colmes Judge stone, the reference to the Night Court characters. Sean Hannity resembles the pompous insulting Dan Fielding, while Alan Colmes is an unassuming comedian that wears glasses, the show Night Court and these two bring through their respective court room and studio all kinds of loons that are often crazy and really strange, the prisoners on Night Court and the people on Hannity and Colmes are on the same level. I guess I shouldn't be surprised this is from the same man, Rupert Murdoch that had the celebrity boxing. This show is proof something is seriously wrong with this country. This and Joe Millionaire.
