"Tide goes in, tide goes out.....you can't explain that!"

One of his favorite arguments when debating faith.

If he's really that ignorant on how the tides are formed then he shouldn't be allowed on television. If he's just being dick, then how is he being fair and balanced? Or no spin zone?

Lets just focus on 2012 shall we, otherwise this list would go on way too long.

Last month he tried to make a war on Christmas segment which Fox loves to do every year. He milked almost an entire segment on the Governor of Rhode Island saying he didn't want a tree lighting this year, problem is, the whole thing was a lie, google and you'll see. In fact as the segment aired there was a big fat Christmas tree lit up in all of its glory.

He reported on the lie about Obama's trip to India costing tax payer's 200 million a day. Later when the truth came out he still defended it on Bill Maher's show.

He claimed that Obama wanted to extend food stamps to "illegals". Flat out lie, in fact even Fox News itself said it wasn't true, but of course he never issued a recanting statement.

He ran a false story about the federal government granting a French clean energy company several million. Problem is, it was a Californian PRIVATE company that did this.

^this is what you call truth. This is only the tip of the iceberg. He's probably one of the most well documented liars on television. The only person that I think lies more and is documented is Glenn Beck. Which coincidentally told a huge lie about the affordable care act on OReiley's show and then Bill lied on air about no one on Fox saying people will be jailed for not buying insurance. But this was in 2010 so I don't want to bore you with info.

I really hope AchtungBono is willing to have a bit of a back-and-forth on this, otherwise this is pointless.

NY Daily News

Political commentator Sean Hannity was one of the big losers in the 2012 election

In a fitting coda to 2012, we’ve learned that the ratings for rock-ribbed conservative Sean Hannity cratered after Barack Obama won his second term, with viewers tuning out the Fox News Channel talk-show host in droves.

According to Nielsen numbers, Hannity lost around half of his audience in the weeks after the election, while his Fox News colleague Bill O’Reilly — who steadfastly refuses to identify himself politically as a conservative — retained around 70% of his audience.

So what happened to Hannity?

The going wisdom is that viewers who basked in his preelection anti-Obama rhetoric tuned him out when they were stunned to wake up on Nov. 7 and discover that the President had won a second term — a scenario that Hannity had all but promised could never happen.

Before the election, Hannity was riding high in the ratings and topped thought leaders on the right, like Dick Morris, Ann Coulter, Peggy Noonan and talk radio bulldog Mark Levin, who predicted Obama would lose in a landslide.

Those voices — and many others like them — all but drove the political coverage on Fox News, talk radio and conservative blogs.

But as Conor Friedersdorf wrote in The Atlantic just after the election, “Outside the conservative media, the narrative was completely different.”

Because in reality, statistics proved the presidential race was in fact never even close — despite the lopsided picture delivered to faithful viewers by Hannity and those who shared his opinions.

Wrote Friedersdorf: “The right-leaning outlets like Fox News and Rush Limbaugh’s show are far more intellectually closed than CNN or public radio. If you’re a rank-and-file conservative, you’re probably ready to acknowledge that ideologically friendly media didn’t accurately inform you about Election 2012. Some pundits engaged in wishful thinking; others feigned confidence in hopes that it would be a self-fulfilling prophecy; still others decided it was smart to keep telling right-leaning audiences what they wanted to hear.”

And when the dust settled, it turns out Hannity’s viewers opted to vote again — with their remotes.

Adding insult to injury, two of Hannity’s rivals on MSNBC, Ed Schultz and Rachel Maddow, held onto huge chunks of their audiences, while at CNN, far less politically polarizing host Anderson Cooper lost almost none of his viewers postelection.

It got even worse for Hannity in the “money demo” of viewers 25-54, who are prized by advertisers.

With this group, Hannity held onto less than half his preelection audience. O’Reilly, on the other hand, kept almost 70%.

And through the early part of December, Maddow actually beat Hannity in the coveted group — a shocking turn, because until the election, Hannity was unassailable by any of his rivals, at least in terms of ratings.

Despite the dip, at the end of the day, Fox News remains the dominant news channel, and will in fact call 2012 one of its best years ever.

I think he's only beholden to his brand and making money.

I think this meme says it all about the U.S. cable news stations:

Sexual assault charges are almost as common as underage drinking or public intoxication charges on college campuses.
