King of Misinformation

Sean Hannity at King of Prussia Mall, PAImage via WikipediaCongratulations to Fox "News" pundit Sean Hannity, just named Media Matters' 2008 Misinformer of the Year. It sounds like the 2008 election really put him over the top in this contest.
But never has he so enthusiastically applied his talents for spreading misinformation as he did to the 2008 presidential race, focusing his energies primarily on President-elect Barack Obama. Day after day, Hannity devoted his two Fox News shows and his three-hour ABC Radio Networks program to "demonizing" the Democratic presidential candidates...
If someone decides to watch television because they want to hear someone reinforcing their worldview by feeding them demonstrably false propaganda, so be it. But anyone looking for truthful information is advised to look elsewhere.
