Sean Hannity Accuses Democratic National Convention of Liberal Bias

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.

  1. Barb is right. The Dems did something the Republicans would never do… adopt some of the other party’s pandering techniques.

  2. Sean needs to be more patient. The Democrats are less liberal all the time and the Republicans are becoming the new leadership of the Democratic Party. Who do you think was responsible for the platform amendment on God and Jerusalem? They even wrote the results of the amendment vote into the script in advance, and disregarded the the actual vote of the delegates.

    They are becoming Republicans, I tell you.
