So, is Sean Hannity a certified journalist reporter type? That is to say, does anybody out there turn on Sean Hannity’s radio show (or teevee show, or internet tubes junction) in order to find out how Hurricane Dean went, how much pork bellies rose or fell today, how the coal-mine rescue is going, if West Nile virus is ravaging your neighborhood, if the shuttle made it home safely or not?
Or would you turn on Sean Hannity to get some high-dudgeon conservative red-meat aural filler?
Or would you turn on Sean Hannity because commercial radio sucks, and you can’t find a CD you’ve not listened to 1 gajillion times already?
In other words, is anybody out there as confused as Tom about Sean Hannity’s (and his Limbaugh-spawned cohorts) role is in whatever you want to call the public space these days?
I’m kinda interested in hearing not about dogma or press bias or other such red herrings…mainly, do you understand that there are entertainers and there are “just the facts, maam” reporters? Do you know the difference between the two? Is that distinction something that exists purely in my Podunk, Texas mind?
