Sean Hannity shamelessly camped out at Terri's hospice for almost two weeks and allowed his guests to mercilessly attack her husband Michael endlessly. When all the evidence came back that supported Terri's diagnosis, Hannity never offered up an apology for his behavior. In this segment he tries once again to smear Michael by asking Carla if he was the one that started this investigation. Her own actions speak to the issue. As far as I'm concerned she couldn't be booted out of the medical field fast enough.
Last year Hannity was busted by Harry Shearer coaching the nurses before they went on camera. (see video ) Here's a video segment on H&C (with Malkin) when all 89 complaints against Michael were found to be false. They also tried to blame Terri's condition on Michael which also was proven to be false.
On June 15, 2005-I posted this:
Terri Schiavo did not suffer any trauma prior to her 1990 collapse and her brain was about half of normal size when she died, according to results released Wednesday of an autopsy conducted on the severely brain-damaged woman. Pinellas-Pasco Medical Examiner Jon Thogmartin concluded that there was no evidence of strangulation or other trauma leading to her collapse. “The brain weighed 615 grams, roughly half of the expected weight of a human brain. … This damage was irreversible, and no amount of therapy or treatment would have regenerated the massive loss of neurons.”
Well the evidence is in. Poor Terri was in PVS and had no hope of recovery. Violence by her husband Michael Schiavo was also ruled out as the cause for her injury. I hope this closes the book on this case, except of course for Mark Furman’s, but how will all those who called Michael a murderer feel? Will Sean Hannity and Joe Scarborough go on the air today and concede they were wrong while embarrassing themselves in the process? Of course not because they have no shame.
Bill Frist’s ability to diagnose patients by video now has got to be called into question.<snark> Tom Delay’s actions to have a bill passed for political gain becomes an even greater humiliation for him and all that took part including George Bush.
Will the extreme religious right come out in full force and admit Terri’s fate should have been left up to the courts and her husband? Will the Church that excommunicated Judge Greer allow him to return? (I wouldn’t go back there.) Will the sycophants return all the money they made off of Terri, including the infamous donation list? And remember all those balloon video tapes? That wasn’t happening either. This also proves how screwed our media is. (Like we didn’t already know.) How the Villagers allowed all these insane people to parade across our TV screens for thirteen straight days; proclaiming their version of “truth” and never having their credentials questioned. This includes Randle Terry and others like him who were presented as normal, rational people. What a truly disgusting display of out-right lunacy in American politics.
