Sean Hannity's Ties to Michael Cohen Reveal his Complete Lack of Journalistic Ethics

Sean Hannity isn’t a journalist, but he plays one on TV.

But even if you’re just pretending at something (like being a fireman or an astronaut), you should still follow the most fundamental rules of that profession.

For instance, kids playing policeman shouldn’t shake down their elderly neighbors for protection money and free Werther’s Originals.

Well, Sean Hannity has been a very naughty boy.

As many news outlets just reported, Barry Zuckerkorn Lionel Hutz Michael Cohen is Hannity’s fugging lawyer, and so maybe he should have mentioned that when he spewed this warmed-over gibbon shite last week:

April 10, 2018:

The president's longtime personal attorney, Michael Cohen, had his home, his hotel and, of course, his office raided by the FBI over $130,000 payment as the personal attorney of Donald Trump to Stormy Daniels. And what people are not understanding here is when the special counsel raids the offices of the president's private attorney, Mueller is now basically backdoored his way into every single Trump business deal, at least since Michael Cohen has worked with Donald Trump.

April 9, 2018:

And this is a Fox News alert. President Trump's long-time personal attorney, Michael Cohen, just had his office, his home, and his hotel that he was staying in raided by the FBI today in an early morning raid. Now, what that means is Mueller's witch-hunt investigation is now a runaway train that is clearly careening off the tracks.

Yes, Sean, it’s careening off the tracks right into your living room, and square into your custom-made collection of Ronald Reagan RealDolls. A real journalist would have maybe found the time to mention that he’s, well, part of the story.

Oh, I love the smell of schadenfreude in the morning.

Happy, happy Monday
