Sean Hannity, the Rodney Dangerfield of Network Anchors

“I get no respect.” – Rodney Dangerfield

Okay, it’s happened again so I’ve got to say something. Sean Hannity quizzed super attorney Jay Sekulow on the Hannity Show Friday night and solved the whole travel ban issue. It was a brilliant exchange. You can see it here.

So Saturday, all day, anchor after anchor and guest after guest all over television, repeated, line by line the issues of the travel ban, each coming to the same conclusions, although far less succinct than the brilliant Jay Sekulow.

They had on the illustrious former Harvard, law professor, Alan Dershowitz, and many other talented attorneys, one by one, guest by guest, they repeated the formula.

So did any of the anchors or experts even mention Friday night? And Hannity? And Sekulow? “As was enunciated last night…” Nooooo.

When he’s wrong, you’ll hear about it. But when he’s right, which is pretty systematically, night after night, Sean Hannity gets no respect.
