Your feelings about CNN have no bearing whatsoever on the factual accuracy (or inaccuracy) of the news they present. That's a matter for objective verification, not knee-jerk subjectivity.

Jon Stewart manages to trash both of them, with better political insights than any real news program on the cableverse.

Maddow and Hanity have an issue with facts.  Both could look at the exact same picture of one blackman at a tea party rally.  Hanity would claim that proves the majority of blacks support the tea party.  Maddow would claim it proves the tea party is made up of slave owners who bring their slaves to rallies.

To compare Maddow with Hannity really does show you don't have a clue. If you want someone on the left
that is closer to the mirror image of Hannity it would be someone like Mike Malloy or maybe to a lesser
extent Ed shultz.  Comparing Maddow with Hannity is really an asinine comparison and an ignorant false
equivalence. Its even more .asinine to suggest  that Maddow would make a statement such as "Maddow
would claim it proves  the tea party is made up of slave owners who bring their slaves to rallies.".

Hannity vs  Maddow? LMAO

Hannity is a college drop out and Maddow went to Stanford and Oxford.

This is like comparing the intellects of George W Bush and Barack Obama.

Every pundit spins and exaggerates, because that's what they have to do, but comparing these two is ridiculous.

Hannity is little more than a Catholic blowhard polarizer. He, like his buddy Rush understand very little about political science and political philosophy.

Maddow is certainly a liberal/progressive, and the content of her show as well as her commentary reflect that.

However, the the OP cited deliberate LIES that Hannity employs to mislead his viewers. The fact that he is "conservative" and Maddow is a liberal does not support an assertion of equivalency when it comes to deliberate LIES and deception.

To make that case you'd have to cite LIES by Maddow, and a preponderance of deception that reaches the level on Hannity's show.

I sincerely doubt anyone can come close to objectively making that case.

Maddow just didn't go to Stanford and Oxford but was a Rhodes Scholar(and got her PHD from Oxford).

When Maddow realizes she made a factual error she corrects it in a later show(when has Hannity ever
done that?)

Hannity simply barfs up talking points and slogans. Hannity rarely if ever presents something
original.  Anyone who has watched Maddow knows she generally doesn't use slogans/talking points
and will have segments running sometimes as long as 15/20 minutes where its pretty much just
her talking. One signature of her show, at least when it comes to the first opening segment, is
that she will start off with something that seems to have no relation to anything in the news
or even politics but somehow ties it in to something current in the news later on in the segment.
I haven't seen anyone do this before or at least on cable news the way Maddow does and certainly
not something like Hannity who closely follows scripted slogans and talking points from the RNC
or right-wing media sources.  For example yesterday Maddow started her show off with how annoying
McAffee anti-virus software was/is and how bad the software really was/is. She then used that to
transition into the eccentric wierdo John McAfee(and that took probably about 5 minutes of time for
Rachel to describe the way McAffe has been very strange in the last number of years) and then finally
tied that into Republicans asking John McAfee advice on the healthcare.gov website.  Someone like
Hannity isn't going to present something in that way with that level of originally.

So its not just that Hannity is more dishonest than Maddow and that Maddow is more intelligent
than Hannity, its just that you can tell Maddow puts far more effort into her show and its reflected
by how much more original her show is compared to Hannity's(or just about any other show on cable
news which maybe isn't saying much since it is cable news).


Oh and here is a recent pic of McAffe(recent as in the last couple of years)



LOL!! I think you get the picture(he or one of his bodyguards may have also murdered an American in Belize)

more on McAfee

It's Friday, even in Texas, so JimmyC is baking cornbread today for the weekend.

He doesn't have time for reasonist backpackers political discussions.

Or maybe he is working on his sermon for Sunday morning, since he'll be busy watching college football and NASCAR tomorrow.

NASCAR wouldn't take up that much time, Cup practice and final practice at Martinsville are all there is plus a Crafstman Truck race and they're short. The Chase race is Sunday so he should have some spare time.
