Ted Koppel, who is not known to be a neutral journalist and is a part of the old guard, liberal legacy establishment media, criticized Fox News host Sean Hannity over how he runs his TV program. Specifically, Koppel blamed the likes of Hannity for increasing polarization among the American people by prioritizing ideology and opinion over facts:
“You have attracted people who are determined that ideology is more important than facts.”
Hannity’s rebuttal was to trust the American people to make their own decisions and reach their own conclusions. Too bad Koppel did not recognize that the liberal media does the same, as far as misinforming the American public.
Did Koppel not realize that the moniker “fake news” resonated with Americans because they were tired of the same old liberal indoctrination by the liberal news media?
