U.S.—Upon the revelation that Sean Hannity had consulted with the same lawyer Donald Trump allegedly used to cover up an affair, the nation reported Tuesday it was concerned that the talk show host and political pundit might not be completely objective in his coverage of current events.
The popular commentator’s previously untarnished and highly respected middle-of-the-road takes on U.S. and world politics have been called into question following the recent revelations.
“You know, I always turned to Hannity for a totally unbiased, impartial take on the day’s news, but now I’m just not so sure I can trust him,” one man in Montana told reporters. “I wonder if he has some kind of political bias or agenda? It’s always the ones you don’t suspect.”
“It’s really opening my eyes to the possibility that Hannity has, on occasion, skewed the news one way or another to fit his political viewpoint,” he added thoughtfully.
At publishing time, the nation had suddenly begun to suspect that nearly every political news outlet has a biased agenda in the way it frames the news, selects stories, and comments on current events.
