hannity-ingraham.jpg Sean Hannity got a little carried away and had a moment of honesty on H&C the other night with Laura Ingraham. He was all pumped up and admitted that FOX News helped defeat the immigration bill.

Hannity: I think we learned something and you touched on this in the book as it relates to as for example when people get angry, like on the immigration bill. The fix was in. Everybody agreed to it. They didn't expect a push back. Talk radio got involved, FOX NEWS, the new media all of a sudden people got informed. They started dialing---instilled fear in their politicians and it changed.

I thought FOX News was supposed to be a "news" channel and report events---not act as a wingnut activist organization, instill fear in politicians and try to defeat legislation.Howard Kurtz agrees with Sean and thinks GOP network activism is A-OK. I'd like to know why he feels FOX---which bills itself as the "fair and balanced" network should be considered a news organization with this type of behavior? After all, that's our major complaint. Thanks Sean for clearing this up for us.
