Fox News host Sean Hannity called on his millions of viewers Monday night to use the power of social media against what he said were purveyors of “fake news” attacks on the president.
“Now over the past few weeks the Trump administration has been ramping up one of the most effective tactics for combating all the fake news,” Hannity said. “They’ve been speaking out on the very programs that spew the misinformation and lies about the president and standing up to these pundits and so-called journalists who treat the White House with hatred and disdain. I’m lovin’ this fight back.”
“Finally fighting back,” Hannity said emphatically after playing clips of Trump spokespersons, “and members of the Trump administration they’re beginning to shine a bright light on these dark corners of this fake news industry, and now thanks to social media you can too!”
“You want to take it to the next level?” he asked. “Write a message to their bosses. Send a tweet over to Zucker over at fake news CNN, or Andy Lack from NBC fake news.”
