Right after Carlson’s 8 p.m. show expressed doubts about the strike and whether it made America safer, Sean Hannity began his 9 p.m. show by saying “tonight the world is safer as one of the most ruthless, evil war criminals on Earth has been brought to justice.”
Hannity then repeated some of the very same talking points that Carlson had dismantled in the previous hour.
Hannity’s show, and some others on Fox, are downright propagandistic in support of the president.
Lou Dobbs, for example, on sister network Fox Business, gushed about Trump on Friday night, saying Trump has “set a standard” for presidents “that most mortals won’t be able to meet. He out-works them, he out-thinks, he is remarkably resourceful, he’s bright, his judgment is second to none.” Dobbs’ comments went viral on Twitter and were widely criticized.
