NEW YORK, NY – As the Democratic National Convention continued in Charlotte Thursday, Fox News presenter and political commentator Sean Hannity accused members of the Democratic Party of displaying liberal bias in the vast majority of its speeches, policies and sentiment.
The outspoken broadcaster, known for defending the ideology of the Republican Party, insisted that the convention’s organizers “played it safe” by intentionally only inviting liberal speakers, such as Bill Clinton, Michelle Obama and Joe Biden.
“Listen, any party that drones on about its support for collective bargaining rights, marriage equality and Planned Parenthood is clearly not offering both sides of the argument,” said an impassioned Hannity. “What we’ve been seeing in Charlotte is wholly unfair and woefully unbalanced.”
The presenter of Hannity – a nightly one-hour conservative news commentary segment – also said that the convention was compromising the “neutrality of modern politics” by allowing President Barack Obama to speak at the expense of Republican presidential rival Mitt Romney.
“It’s frankly sickening the way Republicans have been shunned by the Democratic National Committee,” he continued. “I was greatly looking forward to hearing Mike Huckabee counter-arguing Obama on border security. They didn’t even invite him. Just goes to show that nothing is fair and balanced – not even the Democratic National Convention.”
Meanwhile, rebuking Mr Hannity’s claims this afternoon, analysts have been quick to point out that the Republican National Convention itself boasted a largely conservative spin, though pundits admit that Clint Eastwood’s speech may have almost single-handedly swung the election in President Obama’s favor.
