So congrats to Hannity on his firm grip of the pre-teen and senor citizens markets.
Another point to consider is that if you're a right-wing, fear-mongering, fact-ignoring democracy-shredding conservative, you reall only have one source for the news, Fox, while we on the left have a plethora of networks, which if added up, well exceed Fox and destroys any notion that Fox is somehow a better news network. It's simply the ONLY network that caters to the 51% of ignorant Americans that voted for Bush, TWICE. Hell, even Comedy Central does a better job of insightful political discussion than Fox "Obama is the Anti-Christ"News.
Well lets say that Olbermann is not as bad as Hannity but he is not the perfect example of objectivity either. I think that it is as naive to listen to either of them as your sole source of news.
Although I think that Hannity should man up and accept the challenge otherwise he fullfills the stereotype of the conservative guy who plays tough guy at home when others are fighting their war.
