Sean Hannity is the "worst excuse for a journalist" says Keith Ellison, reports The Inquisitr on Feb. 27, 2013. The conservative Fox News TV host and the Democratic congressman went head-to-head Tuesday night on Fox's "Hannity." "What you just displayed was not journalism," said Ellison. "It was yellow journalism." When Ellison called Hannity a Republican, the 51-year-old political commentator said he was not a registered Republican but a "registered conservative."
After the insults and jabs, Hannity eventually cut the congressman off. "Congressman, you are a total waste of time. I'm moving on because our audience deserves better," he said.
