Sean Hannity v. Keith Ellison: Fox Host The ‘Worst Excuse For A Journalist’ [Video]

Keith Ellison on Hannity

If you don’t watch Hannity, you missed a peach of a fight last night between host Sean Hannity and Democratic congressman Keith Ellison. The whole segment basically consisted of Ellison on the offensive, slamming Hannity both professionally and personally, while the Fox host struggled to get a word in.

While Hannity set the terms of the debate on the national debt, Ellison launched into an angry tirade against the host, accusing him of being “immoral” and a liar, reports The Washington Post. He continuously cited Hannity’s placing of blame on Obama for the debt crisis and the sequester, while he maintains that out current fiscal woes are the fault of congressional Republicans and Obama’s predecessor, George W. Bush.

“You are the worst excuse for a journalist I’ve ever seen,” Ellison started, branding Hannity a “shill for the Republican party.” Hannity allowed Ellison to “keep ranting” for well over three minutes.

Hannity tried to get a question in, to which Ellison responded “No, wait a minute, you said I could rant, and I am.” Ellison continued his tirade, prompting Hannity to ask “Why are you so angry?”

Hannity then tried to get a question in, but Ellison wouldn’t let up on his rant. At the end of the segment, Hannity cut off Ellison, calling him a “total waste of time.”

Hannity is no stranger to tense, ideological melees. Most recently, he sparred with a Think Progress reporter over “backing out” of his offer to be waterboarded back in 2009. Senior reporter Scott Keyes called Hannity an “honorable guy” and asked:

“To prove that it’s not torture, you agreed on your television show to be waterboarded for charity and to donate the proceeds to the troops’ families [...] when are you planning to hold the event?”

Hannity ducked the issue, replying:

“You’re obviously taping this. I’m not getting into your five-year-old issue. Here I am bringing you on the program and give you an opportunity to give your pretty radical left-wing point of view, that’s kind of the way you treat me. But that’s all right.”

Watch video below, via Mediaite, but tell us what you think. Is Congressman Ellison a whiny Democratic malcontent, or a hero for standing up to Sean Hannity?

    An Excellent example of Liberal attack actions……… They will NOT discuss facts or discuss subjects reationally because they know they can't win…. their only "Win" tactic is to degrade, talk over, and ignore their opponent…. When dealing with them it is best to remember a quote "Do not argue with idiots. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience."

  2. Henry Felter

    There is no argument, Ellison is a typical whiny Liberal that believes talking or shouting over someone is the way to win an argument. Massive fail on Ellison.

  3. Mike Kruger

    HANNETY IS THE HEAD IDIOT MOUTH PIECE OF THE TEA-PUBLICAN /LOW-INFORMATION /PROPABANA WING! FOXX SPEWS! DEAL WITH IT SOD BUSTERS!

  4. Darryl Armstrong

    Finally, someone tells the truth about this jerk Hannity. What a clown. Well, there is one thing I admire about him…..he is a successful "whore", making millions of $ from "rednecks" and "right-wing-nuts". As a businessman I will give him his due. Too bad those "mind-set in 1,800's" Tea Party folks are diminishing. At least from Hannity's earning potential. For me, good riddance to them.

  5. Drew Reichart

    Blah, Blah, Blah…..and meanwhile we are still 16 trillion in debt and 23 million people are without jobs. Gas is $4 a gallon and still NOTHING. I'm sure Bush caused SOME of the problem but I for one am growing tired of this DEBACLE and the fact that the DEms only answer is that Bush created it. If he did create it then why don't you fix it? It's been 5 years for God's sake.

  6. Larry Weiss

    Sean Hannity is a shill for the Republican Party, for that matter most of the Fox commentators are. And Sean's guests like Karl Rove and Dick Morris were worse yet. Michelle Mallkin is an absolute joke. But Hannity's ratings post Obama election are dropping like a rock anyway. Sean Hannity is a pundit, not a journalist. CNBC is just as bad on the liberal side. Watch CNN for less biased opinions.

  7. Don Gregg

    Hannity has become as bad as Glen Beck, his show is neither fair or balanced and is filled with as many lies as any speech the President gives. I think they both need to write on the chalkboard "I will not deceive the American Public". I was so glad when Allen Combes left the show and now I wish he were back to keep Hannity in check. I have stopped watching his show because I no longer believe in the man.

    The Democrat sounded typical of the usual scumbag he is. While Hannity is not on my to listen to list, the guy you are referencing is your typical liberal low life Democrat and fk him.

    I didn't see the show, but would Ellison rant like this if Hannity was a shill for the DNC like 96% of American journalists?

  10. Daniel O'Neill

    Ellison could not come up with ONE FACT to back up his running of the mouth. If just lashing out is how you win well then he won. If on the other hand you back up what you say with the truth and the facts then THAT is truly how you win. This is what use to be the way the media report the news now as I read this and see how the reporter is trying to pull the wool over everyones eyes I just shake my head and say this country will never be great again with the news trying to lie to the American People.

    No wonder congress can't agree on anything! I cannot believe that unprofessional freak on Hannity is one! If only small faction of them are like him, all of their meetings would turn into shouting matches! What a classless thing to do by this congressman. He goes on the guy's show, not to argue the case for his party, but instead to launch an attack on Hannity. He had the opportunity to try to make an argument that is constructive to the right-wing viewers, instead he looked like a child.

    Hannity should of just thrown Ellison off the set as soon as he started with his tirade. Ellison can take him liberal, radical speeches to people who care, and if I were Hannity, I would have cut him right off and trown him off the set!

    I love how Democrats continue to blame the deficit on Bush and the Republicans when Obama and the Democrats in the last 4 years have nearly doubled the deficit and have spent more money in 4 years than Bush did in 8 years – and that's while fighting two wars. So the excuse that the deficit is all the fault of Bush is a (yawn) tired lie. Simply, Democrats would rather scream and point fingers rather than take responsibility for their actions.

    So he did what Hannity usually does to his guest. I've watched him enough to know he does that. He'll have a guest like Ron Paul and then won't let the man have a word in and insults him and makes sure there are other guest there who help him. Hannity usually spewing BS and calling them facts without any proof. The Tea party motto if I say it. it is true.

  36. Brent Beckley

    Sod busters? Gee, Mike. How is it that you think anyone who is a conservative must be either a dirt-farmer, a hick, or whatever other stereotypical comment you can think of? Look, it isn't right for either side to simply call each other a bunch of names and think it solves anything. I'm just as upset with the others here with the "typical this, and typical that" as I am with your sod-buster comment. While I might disagree with your stance, I don't think you are an idiot for having it. We all have our opinions based on our life experiences, but we have to come back to the fact that we are all Americans. We're all being "separated" by the media and politicians while we need to come together. Dr. Benjamin Carson said it best. "For an eagle to fly, it needs a right wing and a left wing."

    Sequester is Obama's idea and George Bush presided over a great economy. All democrat arguments are blatant lies. Obama wants the terrible consequences of the sequester to happen so he can blame republicans and Obama has the power to make more terrible things happen and he will.

    If a conservative displayed this kind of anger and ranting, liberals and the media would label it bullying. It's the double standard that is so discouraging to watch, and nobody holds the liberals and media accountable anymore. While I don't agree with everything Hannity says or HOW he says it — at the end of the day I believe he is intellectually honest. As my grand father used to say, "Don't get in a mud wrestling contest with a pig. You will both get dirty and the pig will enjoy it." Hannity refused to jump in the mud with Ellison. Kudos to Hannity. Shame on Ellison.

    Utterly disgusting. Ellison is a typical black Democrat — blames George W. Bush for everything, thinks King Barack Insane D0Hbama, Jr. the first is the black's messiah who's going to lead them to the promised land and carries a chip on his shoulder the size of Texas. He needs someone to go to his parents' house and punch his momma in the mouth. All he did was spew racist, white-hating fecal matter. He can't admit that this is D0Hbama's economy now and the dumbass-in-chief promised all of us that if he didn't have the economy turned around in three years, he would not run for re-election…well, we're still screwed on the economy and he decided he wanted another four years to screw it up more.

    If it would be a liberal host and a conservative guest, the article would say how badly the conservative guest behaved. The same way when Alex Jones went on Pierce Morgan, the liberal media reported how improperly Alex Jones behaved. Now we have the situation reversed, and its Hannaty's fault, that this congressman acted like a buffoon. It is just show no matter what the right do, the media will always blame them. One of the point Keith Ellison was making when Hannaty asked him about the $16 Trillion debt, 6 Trillion under Obama, this buffoon of a congressman, said that what about the other presidents before Obama, they made $10 Trillion. So, it is ok to make the national debt $6Trillion in less than 4 years, but according to this congressman the bigger problem is that we spent $10 Trillion in 200+ years. What a genius, and I hope we will have leaders like him, so we could have $20 or $25 maybe $50 Trillion national debt. What a leader, and whoever voted for this moron I hope will deserve what he/she gets.

    The answer is whiny malcontent, brain washed by all the people who worship at the altar of Obama. Any time a liberal gets asked a legitimate question about the failures of Obama that go into the same rant: everything is Bush's fault, everything is the Republican's fault. You will never be able to convince them that Obama is anything but a god.

  64. Dana Arseneau Motta

    Keith Ellison is a poster child for why things are NOT getting done in Congress. He could have "stuck it" to Hannity better if he could have given examples of how it was the Repubs fault for our finacial woes. Just more typical liberal name-calling because that's what we did on the playground when we didn't have a valid arguement. So sad when 5 yr olds are more grown-up than our Congressional leaders.

    While it's embarrassing that there aren't many Democrats that will comment on issues and somehow imagine that rude behavior is all that's needed to 'debate', it's also true that these tactics are working to convince most Americans that the TEA party and other conservatives aren't worth listening to.

How does Ellison conclude that arguing that Hannity is a "bad journalist is part of his job? Hannity might be a shill for the Republican party, but is Chris Matthews not one for the democrats? How about Rachel Maddow? Or Bill O'Reilly? They're all talking heads with a very biased opinion. Going on their show(s) and acting like a fool is childish, not heroic.

    scottbfdc Republican quotes
    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the Republican, and their sheep can use the new media to shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the Republicans and their sheep to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the republicans and the sheep.”

    Timothy Sexton – Thus that's why you're a Modesto Jr. College! Can't think for yourself can you? Been brain-washed by liberal professors. Feel extremely sorry for you. If you were to do your homework you would find that the root of every crisis we've had has been a Democrat controlled Senate! Combine that with a Democrat President we are lost! Same as giving the country away!

    Ellison, like the rest of the democratic party, has no substance and no platform to stand on so they attack a person and that persons character in a childesh attempt to win favor with the media and the ignorant voting public. Much like Joe blowhole Biden in the VP debate, Ellison figured if his opponent had no opportunity to speak than he would not have the opportunity to prove the democrats ignorance.

  103. Marty Mckenna

    What an ignorant man this congressman is. He was rude and nasty and could not be more ignorant than he was. I give Sean credit for keeping his cool. How did this man get elected to Congress. He needs to take a chill pill when he drinks that lemonade….God Bless America.

    This is typical of the DNC. There is nothing new here. The DNC wont shut up until they are standing in a soup line which isn't far away considering their spending habits. The deficit is a very serious problem and the DNC could completely care less.

  105. Vicki Knutson

    I saw the show. Hannity was polite and letting Keith go on and on…basically bla, bla, bla…Hannity could not have a conversation with this guy. I find when you present the facts these type of people totally ignore the conversation. It shows their ignorance and inability to get things done. A real problem in WDC today. You can't talk logically with these people, they are very angry…did you also see the President of the Black Chamber of Commerce and what he had to say. I suggest you view the show and see what a person in business is saying about…WDC.

    Hannity is not a journalist and he says so all of the time. Yelling louder and talking faster does not make you right. This is what Obama taught as a "community organizer" keep talking and chanting so the other side cannot be heard.

Any time Ellison you have the balls to come and see me any where you get it on you jerk of an excuse of an American. All the demons can say is that fox news lies. When in reality its all the demorats do is lie lie lie just like the so called leader. This president is really splitting the whites and the blacks which is what he set out to do from the beginning. I hope that you people who voted for this idiot are really proud of yourself. We are going down hill fast and hopefully someone will put a stop to it before it is too late for all of us.

    Republican quotes
    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the Republican, and their sheep can use the new media to shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the Republicans and their sheep to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the republicans and the sheep.”

He cant F%$^k up the economy by himself…. You don't like what Ellison said cause you cant handle the truth…Faux news has been caught on several different occasions misrepresenting truth… So because he supports the presidents position he is a worthless liberal…You might as well go back to Jim Crow days and call him a N$#%GGER….

    Get some perspective people. Someone finally pulled a "hannity" on Hannity. His standard MO has always been to control the conversation, and badger guests who don't agree with him or cut them off completely. For whatever reason he chose not to do that for this interview. I'm sure he'll spin it some how, as he does with his standard web of lies. Whatever people. Get over it and stop whining.

  124. Henry Felter

    Timothy, Ellison couldn't be to the right or be right on anything, much less about Hannity. Hannity isn't a Journalist, but an Opinion Show host. He has an opinion to the right and Bab Beckel and Juan Williams have opinions to the left and they try to discuss it. Hannity has guests from both sides of the aisle and he tries to have a discussion. With Ellison it was a pitiful display of stupidity. Sharon Vazquez Ellis, there really isn't a need to put race into this. it is a culture of takers we are against. Skin color means naught, To paraphrase MLK, it is the content of a mans character, not the color of his skin that defines him.

  125. James A. Sands

    I've never heard of the show or the host, but after reading the article I would point out to Mr. Ellison he should go back and study the Clinton administration, with particular emphasis on Messrs Dodd and Frank and their impact on lending and the housing market.

The hypocrisy on both sides is mind numbing! At the end of the day, both groups are nothing but trained parrots who squawk back talking points they've heard from their favorite respective cable news, excuse me……….propaganda channels and then pretend that they actually know what's going on politically in this country and the world. In the last 100 years, the citizens of the U.S. went from people who were respected around the world to nothing but a group of sheep who believe everything the little man reading off the teleprompter tells them.

    Nothing spectacular (or new ) here. Ellison is just a typical liberal Democrat, using the only weapon he has in his arsenal. When you can't intelligently dispute the message….. ATTACK THE MESSENGER. That is, and has been, Rule 1, Page 1 of the Democrat playbook since the early 1980's. It's the only thing that got Obama reelected. Remember? Mitt Romney was a murderer. Mitt Romney was a felon. Mitt Romney was a tax cheat. Mitt Romney hates dogs….. etc..etc.. This Ellison guy is as big a fraud as Obama is. When Hannity asked him a question… he refused to answer and admitted he was there to do nothing but rant. It's the tool all liberals use. Talk over and talk louder…. and the gullible and uninformed will swallow it like tripe. Hannity did exactly what he should have done. He gave this guy a mile of rope, and he not only hung himself, but hung liberalism as a whole. AND BLAME BUSH? Are you kidding me? This guy is a bigger fool that Biden and Kerry combined. CAN WE ALL SAY EXPOSED!

    Typical liberal. He won't talk about the lack of jobs…….nor the fact that even AFTER the sequester, the US is spending more than it did last year. Taxing people more won't even put a dent in the deficit, nor debt. Giving libs more money, is like giving a cocaine addict a million dollars……it's waste. Libs know if we allow illegal aliens (which is WHAT THEY ARE), and get people hooked on "needing the government to get by", they will get more votes. Good gosh…..you Libs think "free health care" will save the US money. Rediculous.

    Timothy Sexton of Gotterdammerung
    Hannity has never denied he is a conservative and stands for conservative principles. However he is not a Republican. Just because he blasts President Obama and the Democrats for their failed economical and morally bankrupt agendas, does not make him a shill for the Republican Party. He also blasts the Republicans for going along with the Democrats and for their own ignorant actions when it comes to the economy.

    One thing Hannity does that the liberal mainstream media doesn't do is tell the truth in a story. He does not edit the story to fit his agenda. He provide you with the entire story on and lets the viewer decide which is right and wrong. If he provides an opinioned story he tells you that it is hios opionion.

    What will never cease to amaze me is how we are under a second term president who made a large amount of false promises for his first election, and when he could make none of them happen, points all blame back to his predecessor, like most failures do. Now these arguments are the only type of claims current democrats can make because there is no valid claim to make. Fox News is not perfect, but they are the only news that ever buck the trend of running all these false covers to alter perception that Obama is actually doing a good job (unlike MSNBC and CNN). Unemployment will continue to grow, as will debt, taxes and in 2014/15 when all these "Obama" Care back pages start going into effect we will see how nasty this will become. So Sad!

    Lots of info, but no facts, Timothy…first, Hannity is NOT a journalist, he is a commentator, so Representative Ellison is not "110% right" because he doesn't even know the difference between a commentator and a journalist. Next, you say the Republicans are the "party of no", yet Obama and his cronies say there will be "no cuts without increases in revenue"! That sounds like a "no" to me. Pelosi and the rest of those idiot Dems are now selling this fiscal mess as "not a spending problem, but a deficit problem"…hey Pelosi, there wouldn't be a "deficit problem" if there wasn't a spending problem. But the Dems just think the American Public is too stupid to realize that…and I guess a majority of the American Voters are, as they have voted Obama to a 2nd term. Finally, when are Obama and the rest of the Democrats going to stop whining about the problems they 'inherited". Instead of proposing problems, they just do things like Rep. Ellison did last night on the Hannity Show…scream, shout and avoid the topic! I don't remember anyone holding a gun to Obama's head and forcing him to be president, do you? No, I think he CHOSE to run for and become the president, promising to fix all these "immoral problems" President Bush caused. So, as I see it, he chose to take on these problems…too bad he hasn't, and quite frankly, does not want to fix them.

  165. Greg Beckham

    Hannity is not a journalist anymore the Faux News is truly a news station, it's a political show and should not advertise as news. At least MSNBC doesn't call their show "news". They call it what it is- "Politics Nation", etc.

    Why do people, especially liberals have such short memories? Obama and Ellison continue to blame Bush for our problems. Let's look at what happened in the late 90's under Clinton. First he nullified the Glass- Steagall act of 1933. This act prohibited banks from delving into stocks and other risky ventures. He also signed into law NAFTA. the North American Free Trade Act. This allowed businesses to move their operations to Mexico without government interference. Remember Ross Perot saying, do you hear that sucking sound, that's american jobs going to Mexico. Lawyers, with Clinton's blessing, began to sue banks and loan companies to force them into making loans to people that could not possibly pay it back. Obama was a huge player in suing these banks. Liberals, your Gods had a big hand in starting our downfall. Why don't liberals remember the bad things their heros do? Ellison is just another example of a non thinking motor mouth liberal. Can't any of you think for yourselves? Why don't you watch what Obama is doing? Why can't you ever check out the facts before you speak? Does Obama and your party do all of your thinking for you? BTW, I'm not a republican. I'm an independent that votes split tickets. I vote for the person I believe will do the best job. Not a party.

I even begged my husband to change the channel because I could take his personal tirade on Hannity. It truly disgusts me to know we have elected such nonsensical, attacking, and abusive people to head our country. No matter his political affiliation, that behavor should not be tolerated.

This most recent fight between Hannity and a Liberal is yet another fine example of the fact that NO ONE including the current Obama Administration or anyone in Congress, The Liberal Media, or our Nation's Highest Law Makers takes seriously the fact that we need to get things turned around once and for all. I'm sick of EVERY LAST ONE OF ALL OF THEM putting the "PEOPLE" of the UNITED STATES in harms way to further their own selfish interests. And I'm beyond caring which party, or which media outlet they are siding for. Things SUCK EVERYWHERE for EVERYONE right now. And unless, and until Politicians, the Media, and our Law Makers are Prepared to STOP being selfish and START working together to come up with real solutions to the problems that CURRENTLY face our Nation, our ship that is the U.S. will remain SUNKEN! Not EVEN one of these politicians or lawmakers have had the moxie to look to the greatness of our forefathers and actually allow them to guide them at this point. And that is truly sad. We have WONDERFUL things in our own history that can be pulled from to help us right on up out of this mess, including (but not limited to) Original and Constitutional Amendments, The New Deal which was created back when we saw this large of numbers of people standing in soup lines, and forced to give children up to orphanages. I don't recall reading anywhere in our American History books (not even in my college days) that politicians (even the democratic ones) created such havoc as to propose that our country should "rethink" it's "form of democracy" and consider becoming "socialist" in deed and policy making, even during our darkest hours. And yet, somehow today, Washington policy makers, particularly on the Left side of the isle are "shocked" that they are having a difficult time pushing things through? Newsflash: There's this thing called the 5th Grade that is available to almost anyone and everyone that attends American Public Schools. If you are able to take and pass a basic 5th Grade History Class, you will find out that our Nation did not start out as a "Socialist" or "Communist" Country. And, during times of strife, it has been the general response, Historically Speaking, that Americans tend to "band together" to find a solution. Historically our Politicians do the same, rather than "waste time pointing fingers". May I propose the simple solution of using those majority Ivy League Educations that the majority of those in D.C. profess to have, to look back upon those of your predecessors, and perhaps you may find a solution or two sitting right in front of you!

    Clay Clay and Timothy Sexton…you guys have jobs or what? If so, please attend to them and quit your unfounded, ignorant rants.

  185. Dave Horton

    Frank, You hit the nail on the head. Both sides are so ingrained with pushing there parties agenda that they won,t compromise and do what is best for this country.

    Face the facts, Everything the GOP, Conserbavtive, and the Tea Party have tried since Nixon has turned to poop. Get over yourselves. Hannity is an aunt with a capital C.

    What more could Ellison say……Other than the truth and that is all republicans are scumbags and essentially seem to hate America.

  188. Jon Finch

    Clay Clay – When? when did the republicans say this? show me ANY evidence to back this absurd idea up? What republican said this? when?

  189. Steve Schroeder

    U two are sad, Clay and Timothy. Your so out numbered here. Just like the rigged election. There are a lot of idiots in the world and you two are the king of the idiots.

    Timothy Sexton what do you know about republicans, except whatever lies your party feeds you, and what you see through your liberal glasses? Take hannity or leave him, all this was is a liberal dem showing how unproffessional and immature he can be. He did not make his party look good.

    Loud Mouthed talk show hosts are not used to getting it back in their face, so is it a surprise when liberals come back in your face for misrepresenting the facts, Bravo Keith couldn't have said it better, the whole idea of a sequester was to for congress into making a decision, so they try to blame it on the president. The president just forced them to accept responsibilty for not doing their job, maybe docking their pay could have helped more.

  192. Dave Horton

    I don't know about anyone else but I am tired of the Democrats or the Republicans placing blame. We didn't vote them in to place blame. We voted them in to work together and fix the problem.

  193. Lou Gagliardi

    It's no argument, Rep. Ellis is a true american patriot. Unlike the republicans and tea terrorists that only want to destroy this country in the name of a god that is nothing more then a bigot, a war mongering deity and a bully. Goddess bless Rep Ellis!

    ellison is a douche bag of the first order. A typical liberl whiny loser, a liar and a jerk.

    When the morons of this once great country stop thinking in terms of Left vs. Right, Dems vs. Reps, Liberals vs. Conservatives, etc., we MAY finally get back on track.

    Both 'sides' are one and the same – both keeping you quarreling, both robbing you blindly, both involving sons and daughters in unnecessary conflicts – instead of you tossing them out on their collective asses.

    Wake up and do something about it.

    It is so easy to spot the FOX republican replies on this article. Made me lol.

    Congressman Ellison is a whiny Democratic malcontent. I watched the show and Hannity was very patient with this bone head but I was thrilled when he finally said, the American People deserve better, and shut the bone head down, cutting him off the show..

    No facts…kind of like no fact that Bush Jr. ran up the deficit and handed out no-bid contracts to a war that never should have happened? You mean THOSE facts? But let me guess, you select out the facts you don't want to accept…
