Sean Hannity opened his show Tuesday night going on a tear against NBC News and MSNBC following Rachel Maddow‘s report on President Trump‘s 2005 tax returns that he felt were very overhyped.
Mediaite reports he referred to Maddow as one of the “Trump-hating hosts over at NBC News, who is really one of the leaders of the alt-left propaganda destroy-Trump-at-all-costs media.”
After talking about the deep state and the concerning government leaks again, Hannity went back to NBC and said there is a “corporate jihad being waged by NBC News” against the president.
He said, “It proves that they will do anything, spin any conspiracy, to destroy the Commander-in-Chief.”
Hannity said that he laughed as he watched Maddow Tuesday night, calling it a “flat-out pathetic conspiratorial attempt to smear the president” and concluding, “NBC is not news. It is deep state Obama propaganda television.”
Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday accused NBC of “intentionally” interfering in the 2016 presidential race to undermine President Trump’s campaign.
“Consider the infamous ‘Access Hollywood’ tape,” Carlson said, referencing a controversial recording of Trump lewdly discussing women in 2005.
"That tape belonged to NBC. It was shot by NBC cameramen for an NBC show on NBC property. So how did it wind up in the hands of The Washington Post, which broke the story?”
“How, in other words, did valuable intellectual property from one news organization end up benefitting a competitor? Intentionally, that’s the short answer.”
