Hannity promptly and smartly called for the whole interview to be posted on the CBS News website, because he wanted the public to have all the facts, not skewed or fake news.

Ted Koppel, the broadcast journalist who has been a contributor to CBS Sunday Morning since 2016 is 77 and, for Sean Hannity, low hanging fruit.

Hannity, 55, is the radio and television host, author, and conservative political commentator. The Sean Hannity Show is a nationally syndicated talk radio show. Hannity is a cable show on Fox News Channel.

Unambiguously and sincerely conservative, Hannity played a key role as a commentator in the election of President Donald Trump.

Koppel is not a fan of Trump.

Koppel is a hypocrite.

Koppel interviewed Hannity for last Sunday's CBS Sunday Morning.

The interview lasted about 45 minutes, but only a snippet was broadcast in a pathetic attempt to discredit Hannity as a person who ignores facts in his pursuit of ideology.

Hannity called it "edited fake news" (www.familysecuritymatters.org/blog/detail/hannity-koppel-interview-is-example-of-edited-fake-news).

I'd called it deceptively edited fake news, but good enough.

Hannity is not a purveyor of fake news.

That's what Koppel and CBS News did.

Hannity boldly deals in facts that the Left prefers to ignore or to deny.

Is Koppel's memory failing?

Doesn't Koppel remember the Duke lacrosse NO rape case?

Ironically, CBS's "60 Minutes" was instrumental in exposing Crystal Gale Magnum's gang rape claim as a hoax.

Kudos to the late Ed Bradley.

Bigger Kudos to Hannity for pursuing the facts and setting the stage for "60 Minutes" to break the news that it was many (but not all) "liberals" who were ignoring the facts in the alleged interest of "a greater truth."

The entire interview is readily postable, but it has not been posted.

The entire interview is a fact.

It should be posted.

Obviously Hannity isn't afraid to have the public see it all.

Who's trying to manipulate the public?

Not Hannity.

Who's trying to manipulate the public?

Koppel,

Who's putting ideology ahead of facts?

Not Hannity.

Koppel and CBS News should be ashamed that Hannity was wrongly blamed.

Game, set, match to Hannity!
