Hannity Fires Back at CNN’s Jeff Zucker: He Has the Gall to Call Fox News Propaganda?

Fox News’ Sean Hannity tonight blasted CNN’s Jeff Zucker for his comments at SXSW about the network.

Zucker called Fox News a “propaganda” outlet and said, “I think the question should be, is Fox state-run TV or is the White House state-run government by Fox TV?”

Hannity first opened by bringing up the planned lawsuit from Nicholas Sandmann‘s family against CNN––predicting they will “lose a fortune”––before noting how Zucker “had the gall to call the Fox News Channel a propaganda outlet.”

He said Zucker and the network should apologize for their “disgusting rush to judgment” and smears, starting with Sandmann.

Hannity railed against CNN––including showing a montage consisting of ––before saying one of their problems is the message they’re sending to the rest of the world about America:

“They’re giving the world a very distorted, perverted view of our country every single day. They never talk about America’s greatness, America’s success, the president’s success. Just hate Trump all day long. That’s what the world sees through the CNN lens.”
