Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks took exception to Sean Hannity berating a Ferguson, Missouri local official for her take on the shooting of Michael Brown, because she wasn't there at the scene. Hannity lit into Patricia Bynes with a list of his own assumptions about what really happened, his "education" of Bynes. The irony wasn't lost on Ugyur, saying “Hey Sean, I’ve got a question for you: were you there? I mean, you’ve got all these assumptions — ‘Oh, the cops, gotta respect the cops, maybe [Brown] had his head down and he was charging, he was doing all these things.’ Wait, Sean. Why don’t you shut the f*ck up, ’cause you weren’t there?”
