Even if Sean Hannity’s FOX News show isn’t on your regular viewing schedule, you may want to tune in tonight, or set the TiVo.
The FOX “promos” promise an episode that’s practically designed with NewsReal readers in mind. Called “The President’s Top 10,” the show is a one-hour special examining the people “who the president has picked to shape our country” — that is, the various czars and other insiders we’ve been raising the alarm about at NewsReal for months now.
From the looks of the graphic (above), Hannity’s targets include:
- John Holdren, “Science Czar,” MacArthur “Genius Grant” winner, nuclear freeze activist.Â Money quote (circa 1971): â€œ…some form of ecocatastrophe, if not thermonuclear war, seems almost certain to overtake us before the end of the century.”
- David Koh, Legal Advisor to the State Department, “transnationalist” and “world court” advocate. Money quote: The Patriot Act “should really be called the ‘Round-up-the-Usual-Suspects’ Act.”
- Mark Lloyd, FCC “Diversity Czar” (no, really), Hugo Chavez admirer, “Fairness Doctrine” double-talker: Money quote: “No one is going to pull the plug on grandma’s radio.”
OK, I made up that last one.
In reality, Lloyd compares conservative talk radio supremacy in America to that deadly tribal takeover of Rwandan radio stations. Actual money quote:
It should be clear by now that my focus here is not freedom of speech or the press…. This freedom is all too often an exaggeration…
I’m pretty sure Hannity will have something to say about that tonight.
