Sean Hannity Throws Twitter Temper Tantrum After Being Labeled “Worst of Fox News”

hannity-2Well I wouldn’t necessarily file this under “newsworthy,” but it’s still fairly hilarious nonetheless. After all, who doesn’t like to poke fun at Sean Hannity when given a chance? This guy is easily one of the most detestable characters on Fox News.

Which was somewhat confirmed in a recent poll done by political website Mediaite, when they sent a survey to dozens of cable news hosts on Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC to find out what they thought of their colleagues.

According to the method used by Mediaite:

While guaranteeing complete anonymity, we asked them to name one colleague for each of the following 10 categories: Best and Worst Hosts, Fox; Best and Worst Hosts, CNN; Best and Worst Hosts, MSNBC; Best and Worst Guests, Overall; and Best and Worst TV Reporters, Overall.

Well, when it came down to the “worst” on Fox News, the competition wasn’t even close as Hannity took that “prize” in a landslide.

And he apparently didn’t take too kindly to “winning” this award, as it sparked what is tantamount to Hannity throwing a temper tantrum on Twitter:

I love how Hannity acted as if this was some op-ed pushed by Mediaite when, in fact, it was a survey comprised of various cable news personalities, some of whom were from his own network.

And while this survey isn’t exactly anything I would call “scientifically valid,” it’s still something that should matter personally, because this wasn’t done via random sample. These are responses from cable news colleagues, some of whom he might work alongside at Fox News.

Though I will say the lack of maturity in his response was a bit surprising. While I don’t really have any respect for Hannity, and almost always disagree with him, I would have expected someone in his position to have acted with a bit more professionalism when going back and forth with other members of the media. Instead, he acted like some petulant child who was told something they didn’t like hearing so they lashed out at the source of that information.

So it’s obviously clear that this survey struck a nerve with the conservative host, otherwise I doubt someone of his stature (because he is a fairly well-known and busy individual) would have even bothered to respond to the results.
