George W. Bush Makes Fun of His Tendency For Verbal Bloopers (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Nov 11th 2010 5:08PM
On 'Hannity' (Weekdays, 9 PM ET on Fox News) Sean Hannity played an outtake from his recent interview with George W. Bush in which the former president had a humorous response to Hannity flubbing a line and then asking for a retake.

"They never let me do it again," Bush said, to the amusement of the studio audience. "It would have been underestimate, not misunderestimate. Strategy not strategery, I mean come on."

While Bush did once use the term misunderestimate, the mispronunciation "strategery" actually comes from a 'SNL' sketch, in which Will Ferrell was spoofing Bush.

However "strategery" has become so associated with our 43rd president, that it's entirely possible Bush now believes he really did say it.

World goes nuts because the President preempts A Charlie Brown Christmas

A Charlie Brown ChristmasIt's official: President Barack Obama has officially ruined Christmas.

Pundits and TV viewers from up and down the dial are calling out President Obama for airing his big speech on the troop surge in Afghanistan and preempting ABC's airing of the classic Christmas cartoon A Charlie Brown Christmas. If this causes a move for impeachment, I may never awake from my laughter coma.

Not only was the story the top headline on yesterday morning's Drudge Report, but the pundits really jumped in to turn the President into their own personal Scrooge.

MSNBC also apologizes for using wrong Palin footage

by Danny Gallagher, posted Nov 20th 2009 7:12PM
If you're playing a TV news drinking game wherein you and your dumb little buddies have to do a shot every time someone posts fake footage or film for a story, you might want to think about switching to Tang.

Now MSNBC's Morning Meeting has been caught dipping their hand in the Photoshopping jar when they aired rather obvious fake photos of Sarah Palin while doing a diss-session on the former VP candidate and her never ending book tour. Seriously, why is there this much coverage over one book? Even The Never Ending Story has an ending.

Dylan Ratigan issued an official apology to the viewers, Palin and her family for "mistakenly" using the doctored images. He also said he and the network took the weekend to ensure this would not happen again. I guess that means there's one less email forwarding fratboy on MSNBC's research payroll now.

Fox News caught using wrong footage ... again

by Danny Gallagher, posted Nov 20th 2009 3:07PM
Remember the old saying, "Fool me once (awkward pause), shame on (another awkward pause), shame on you (another longer and more awkward pause). Fool me, we can't get fooled again"?

Less than a week after Fox News host and conservative pundit Sean Hannity apologized for accidentally using the wrong footage from Glenn Beck's "9/12 Rally" as footage for Rep. Michelle Bachmann's "Super Bowl of Freedom" rally, the network used the wrong footage in another story. This time, they used the wrong footage for a story on the "crowds" that showed up during Sarah Palin's book tour.

Think Progress, a blog created by the liberal think tank the Center for American Progress, discovered the footage. The dead giveaway was the "Country First" campaign signs indicating the footage was taken during Palin's campaign run with John McCain back in 2008. The network called the clip mix-up a mistake and issued another apology. Hold on, are we sure that they aired the right apology this time?

Hannity gets caught by Jon Stewart ... and apologizes?!?

Hannity, Jon Stewart
Once again people, I'm forced to ask the obvious question: what the hell is going on here? Have we crossed over into the bizarro world? Is up now down? Has black become white? Did Lou Dobbs just announce that he's leaving CNN to take over the host chair of G4's Attack of the Show?

The other day, Jon Stewart called out Sean Hannity and his self titled show for what appeared to be doctored footage of Michelle Bachmann's recent health care rally dubbed the "Super Bowl of Freedom" (does that have anything to do with the Tostidos Fiesta Bowl of Human Rights?) spliced together with images from Glenn Beck's "9/12 Rally" to make the crowd look bigger.

Jon Stewart Responds to Sean Hannity's Apology on 'The Daily Show' (VIDEO)

by Patricia Chui, posted Nov 13th 2009 1:29AM
Sean Hannity must have known that when you apologize to Jon Stewart, that's hardly the end of the story. Particularly not if there's more fun to be had.

Hannity recently apologized to Stewart after the 'Daily Show' host called him out for airing misleading footage during a 'Hannity' segment on a recent rally against health-care reform. The conservative talk show host had admitted to making an "inadvertent mistake" in showing images of a large crowd to illustrate the number of supporters at the gathering -- when in fact, as Stewart pointed out on his Tuesday night show, the footage Hannity was airing came from a different Capitol hill rally held months earlier.

So, post-mea culpa, the ball was squarely back in Stewart's court, and do you think he was just going to let it lie there? Of course not.

Sean Hannity Apologizes to Jon Stewart

by Chris Jordan, posted Nov 12th 2009 12:33PM
Sean Hannity had two choice words for Jon Stewart last night: thank you.

Hannity "thanked" Stewart on his Fox program 'The Sean Hannity Show' for pointing out that a Hannity report last week on a recent anti-health care reform rally in Washington D.C. was accompanied by older footage of a larger rally, according to a report in the Detroit Free Press.

The video used was part of a "9-12" group rally. The 9-12 rally, affiliated with the anti-tax Tea Party movement, took place on Sept. 12, and had a much larger crowd. Stewart pointed out the video glitch on Tuesday's episode of 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.'

Did Fox make Beck back off?

by Danny Gallagher, posted Aug 23rd 2009 10:02AM
Glenn BeckEven though the sudden pull out from several sponsors hasn't caused Fox to prematurely eject Glenn Beck from his time slot, he was suspiciously absent from the airwaves this week.

Some suggest this Beck-free week wasn't just a much needed vacation for the host, or for the viewer for that matter.

TVNewser spoke to some Fox insiders who claim the network ordered the silver haired devil to take a week off so some of the heat over his advertising boycott could die down.

Hulu is streaming the inauguration... watch it here! - VIDEO

Obama posterHave you gotten Inauguration Fatigue yet (I capitalized it because I hope to make it an official, WebMD-listed affliction)? Hopefully, you haven't, because it's going to be "All Obama, All The Time" today, so you might as well sit back, get a cup of coffee, and enjoy the pomp and circumstance.

Thanks to our friends at Hulu, you don't even have to leave the computer. They're streaming Fox News' coverage of the ceremonies (hopefully, Sean Hannity is being kept in a safe location so we don't see him sobbing and rending his garments). For convenience, I've added the stream after the jump (Warning: it plays automatically, so put those headphones on now).

Ah, life in the near-teens is good, isn't it? You can watch the inauguration and slave away at your soon-to-disappear job without even having to get up from your desk. Now get back to work, people!

Stewart, Colbert return from Vacationland with a cornucopia of cable news cameos - VIDEOS

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jan 6th 2009 6:02PM
If you're anything like me (first of all, you have my deepest sympathy), you haven't been able to sit still since The Daily Show and The Colbert Report went off the air for the holidays. It also may be because my body has absorbed more sugary fat from the holidays than one of Tyler Durden's homemade soaps.

Both shows returned to the airwaves Monday with new episodes. Both also had cable news celebrity cameos so big, no lightning fast news ticker announcing an accidental nuclear missile launch could draw your attention away from them.

The Daily Show
returned with another appearance by CNN's gray-haired uber-anchor Anderson Cooper and an interesting interview with new Meet the Press moderator David Gregory. The Colbert Report picked up former Hannity and Colmes pushover Alan Colmes and wound things up with an interview with CNN reporter John King.

Sean Hannity replacing Alan Colmes with Sean Hannity

by Danny Gallagher, posted Dec 15th 2008 9:29AM
Once again I'm forced to ask the question, what the hell is going on here? Have we entered the bizarro world? Is up now down? Has black become white? Did police arrest PGA golfer John Daly for shooting himself in the leg with an unlicensed handgun in a crowded hip-hop club, and the NRA award Plaxico Burres their Humanitarian of the Year award?

Fox News has announced their replacement for the outgoing Alan Colmes, the liberal ying to Sean Hannity's conservative yang on their self-titled debate show: it's Sean Hannity.

He's doing the show all by himself, so finally he has someone worthy of debating him. Stephen Colbert's "Formidable Opponent" will never be funny again.

Hannity gets new gig on Fox News

by Adam Finley, posted Jan 5th 2007 7:02PM

sean hannityAs president of the Sean Hannity Fan Club, I am thrilled to announce that Sean Hannity's new hour-long, live program for Fox News will be debuting this Sunday. Hannity's America will include an in-depth feature story, debates with liberals, and interviews. I will be selling busts of Hannity made out of nuts and chocolate in celebration of this new show, and will also be constructing a giant replica of the conservative pundit out of old mufflers. Actually, they'll be mufflers I steal from cars in the parking lot, resulting in a cacophony of unmufflered engines serving as a noisy salute to Hannity.

Sean Hannity upset over documentary

by Adam Finley, posted Mar 3rd 2006 2:06PM

sean hannityFox News' Sean Hannity isn't happy. It seems that the documentary This Divided State has raised the choler of the famous conservative and co-host of Hannity and Colmes. After you watch this footage from the film, you might begin to understand why. Hannity was brought to the ultra-conservative campus of Utah Valley State College before a controversial appearance by Michael Moore. Hannity says he plans to sue the filmmakers based on how the aforementioned footage was used. Of course, whether the footage was edited to make Hannity seem like a smug, self-righteous jerk or whether he actually is a smug, self-righteous jerk is for you to decide on your own.
