The Right Word: Bust-up over the debt ceiling

Sean Hannity complains that ‘free speech doesn’t exist for conservatives in the media any longer’ as the debt ceiling arguments rage


Sean Hannity is appalled by how the mainstream media are characterising the GOP’s behaviour in the debt ceiling debacle.He played some clips of liberals calling the GOP “hostage takers” and “suicide bombers”and saying that the party has become a “political cult” whose “Hezbollah wing” is in full control. He noted that even “so-called conservative” David Brooks of the New York Times said that “if responsible republicans don’t take control, independents will conclude that republican fanaticism caused this default, they will conclude that republicans are not fit to govern and they will be right.”
Hannity discussed the outrageous slander of the Republican Party with democratic strategist Steve Murphy.

You know what I’m sick and tired of… you don’t like it either but the left keeps doing it, the left keep doing it! The left keep attacking viscously, viciously, Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann! Here’s the problem, you say it, a couple of other Democrats say it, it doesn’t get noticed and it keeps happening. If a conservative says it they get fired, their advertisers get targeted because liberals say anything, but free speech doesn’t exist for conservatives in the media any longer. That’s the problem.

Murphy responded that he didn’t think it was helpful to characterise the GOP as “economic terrorists” but maintained that it was highly irresponsible of republicans to suddenly decide that the $4 trillion deficit reduction they have been insisting is absolutely essential to save the country from economic ruin, is not really necessary after all if it means that their taxes would have to be raised.
