Democrats once again tried to take down Fox News Channel.
Liberals failed miserably.
And Jen Psaki found out starting a fight with Sean Hannity would have one bad ending.
The January 6 commission leaked text messages from Fox News hosts Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham and Brian Kilmeade that were sent to then-Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows on January 6.
In the text messages, all three hosts asked Trump to make a statement asking anyone committing violence at the Capitol to go home.
“Can he make a statement, ask people to leave the Capitol,” Hannity wrote to Meadows.
Liberals and their allies in the corporate media seized on these emails to falsely claim that Hannity and others panicked about the melee at the Capitol in private while publicly downplaying the violence on their TV shows.
Jen Psaki pounced at the chance to attack the news organization that regularly challenges the administration’s spin and talking points in a clear attack on the First Amendment guarantee of a free press.
“It is disappointing and not surprising, the same individuals willing to warn, condemn, and express horror over what happened on January 6th, in private, were totally silent in public or even worse, were spreading lies and conspiracy theories and continue to since that time. Disappointing, not surprising, unfortunately we have seen a trend from the same individuals,” Psaki stated.
Hannity addressed the matter on his show the following night.
During a monologue Hannity told viewers that his text message to Meadows reflected the same sentiments he shared with listeners on his radio show when Hannity watched the riot in real time and later that night on his Fox Channel TV show.
“Surprise, surprise, surprise: I said to Mark Meadows the exact same thing I was saying live on the radio at that time and on TV that night on January 6 and well beyond January 6. And by the way, where is the outrage in the media over my private text messages being released again publicly? Do we believe in privacy in this country? Apparently not,” Hannity told viewers.
Hannity then played a series of clips of his commentary from January 6 where he clearly condemned the violence and did not try to downplay anything.
But nothing will stop the media mob from lying.
Activists in the corporate media settled on a false narrative that January 6 was a Trump-inspired insurrection.
Donald Trump did not incite any riots.
And what took place on January 6 was not an insurrection.
Prosecutors charged nearly 700 individuals with crimes that day and did not bring one charge for sedition or charge anyone under the Insurrection Act.
Democrats and the corporate media thought January 6 was their ticket to excommunicating Donald Trump and his supporters from American political life.
But the attempt to smear Hannity and his fellow Fox News hosts as frauds and liars ended up imploding as another corporate media lie.
