Today’s quote comes to us from Jon Lovett, a speechwriter for Hillary Clinton during last year’s presidential campaign (and who knows for what in the future).
This, incredibly, is what he told CNN’s Brian Stelter during today’s “Reliable Sources” show:
“You go after Hannity on your show…but then you turn on CNN, and Hannity’s got a little beachhead on half the shows on this network.”
Sean Hannity? Sean Hannity?
Isn’t he the guy who gets huge ratings…on Fox News Channel? Isn’t Fox News Channel the network that competes against CNN (if you call getting multiples of CNN’s viewing audience actual competition)?
Jon Lovett wins Quote Of The Day honors for the sheer hilarity of claiming that CNN is a sounding board for Sean Hannity.
Hmmmm. I wonder if he’s the same guy who floated that “Chelsea Clinton never catches a break, just like her mother” line?
If so, I’m giving out two awards today.
