Hannity: ‘I Don’t Claim to Be a Journalist,’ But My Show is More Like ‘The Whole Newspaper’

All the Hannity that’s fit to print?

During his opening monologue on Wednesday night, Sean Hannity reiterated his longstanding claim that he is not a journalist. But he also argued that his show is as comprehensive as…well…we’ll let him tell you:

“I don’t claim to be a journalist. We do journalism, [but] what we say about being a talk show host — we’re like the whole newspaper.”

The whole newspaper. Yes, go ahead and put down that New York Times. Hannity’s got you covered.

Here’s his reasoning:

“We do straight news when there’s a war, straight news on weather, straight news on important [incidents] that are happening, like Ferguson when that was happening, or Baltimore. And then we give a lot of opinion. So [we’ve got] the news page, editorial page, the opinion page. We even do gossip and sports — like tonight, for example, Tim Tebow is on. So we’re like the whole newspaper. That’s what we do.”

Yep. That’s what he does…
