I have an overwhelming distrust of the corporate media, and it isn’t because they have a college education in journalism and I don’t (I do this blog because it is a better way to vent my political opinions as opposed to dumping them on my family). But then again, neither does Sean Hannity or Glenn Beck. And these guys sit in front of a camera and tell you how to think.
I distrust the corporate media because they have no free speech. They say or do the wrong thing and sponsors get pulled (as in the case of Glenn Beck), they get fired or suspended (as in the case of Imus when he called the girls Rutger team “nappy headed ho’s”). Which I really don’t understand because Ludicrous can have a song saying you bitches ain’t some niggas…you some ho’s, and the women love it. There’s that song out called Crazy Bitch, and it is really demeaning to women and they love it too.
You have more of a chance of getting truth from someone who has a radio show from his basement as opposed to these guys (take Alex Jones for example).
Sean Hannity a lover of prostitutes?
Now the pictures on the right are of Sean Hannity with prostitutes in a whore house in Nevada. I found these on a website and thought, this can’t be right. These have got to be photoshopped. For all I know they still could be. But it doesn’t look that way to me. According to sources the photos were leaked by Hannity himself to distance himself from the Glenn Beck 1990 rape scandal.
According to Wanda Cyprian, a scheule coordinator, she had this to say of Hannity:
“Sean was no stranger to the Bunny, he was actually one of our most valued customers, right behind Charlie Sheen, Michael Douglas and Billy Mays, you know the guy with the beard from those infomercials who OD’d on coke.” Cyprian went on to say: “I’ve gotten to know Sean pretty well over the past couple of years, and I can honestly say- yes, the man had an insatiable thirst for paying top dollar for raunchy sexual services- however, that doesn’t mean he might have been a rapist in 1990, or a co-conspirator to a rape in 1990.” She also said the reality of his recovery from his legalized prostitution addiction, “has been kind of bitter sweet you know, because on one hand we lost one fourth of our yearly revenue- boom! gone in one shot, but on the other hand I’m happy to see that he’s recovered and is leading what appears to be a normal life free of hookers.”
Now understand this section does not pertain to the blog post, I just wanted to explain the photos before someone said, “those are fake!” And thus far I haven’t seen anything to suggest they are.
Sean Hannity the scam artist…
Fox News viewers who see the likes of Hannity and Beck as “telling the truth” operate under a serious case of illusion. What I am about to write, and what has been circulating around the internet for a while now, may go over their heads and through their ears. As one Hannity fan told me when I told her that the Freedom Alliance foundation as fronted by Sean Hannity and Oliver North is a scam, she said, “I don’t believe it.” But here it goes.
Conservative columnist and radio show host writes on her website:
But it’s all a huge scam.
In fact, less than 20%–and in two recent years, less than 7% and 4%, respectively–of the money raised by Freedom Alliance went to these causes, while millions of dollars went to expenses, including consultants and apparently to ferry the Hannity posse of family and friends in high style. And, despite Hannity’s statements to the contrary on his nationally syndicated radio show, few of the children of fallen soldiers got more than $1,000-$2,000, with apparently none getting more than $6,000, while Freedom Alliance appears to have spent tens of thousands of dollars for private planes. Moreover, despite written assurances to donors that all money raised would go directly to scholarships for kids of the fallen heroes and not to expenses, has begun charging expenses of nearly $500,000 to give out just over $800,000 in scholarships.
The guy went on to tell me about Hannity’s “Freedom Concerts,” which are staged across the country with the proceeds going to children of slain soldiers. Of course, as the guy tells it, there’d be a lot more money every concert to go to the cause if Hannity didn’t demand–and get–use of a Gulfstream 5 plane to fly him and his family/entourage to the concerts; a “fleet” (that’s the word the guy used) of either Cadillac or Lincoln SUVs for him and his family/entourage; and several suites at really expensive hotels for him and his family/entourage. The promoter apparently values Hannity’s star demands at well over $200,000 per event. The source says he heard that Oliver North pulled Hannity aside at one of the concerts and told him that this had to stop. But that may mean that, from now on, Hannity has to fly on a G4 instead of a G5, gets only a few luxury SUVs, and two or three suites.
In 2008, Freedom Alliance raised $8,781,431 in profits and gave only $1,060,275.57 (just 12%) to wounded soldiers and to scholarships for the children of fallen soldiers. Other expenses included: $1,055,791 on postage, $925,392 on printing, $157,041 on travel. 2007 reveals that they spent only 7% on scholarships and wounded soldiers, while in 2006 when the Alliance brought in $11 million dollars only $400,000 went to the scholarships and wounded soldiers.
It is a “Golden Rule” of charities that they spend 75% of their money on the charities mission. This is something that Oliver North and Sean Hannity have obviously missed. Christian logic would tell Sean Hannity that this is all wrong, but then again, it would say the same about torture.
The Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington have filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission and the IRS calling Freedom Alliance and Sean Hannity as “deceptive”.
“illegal and deceptive marketing practices by suggesting that all money generated by ticket sales for the Freedom Concerts he sponsors each summer goes to scholarships for children of killed and wounded service members.”
“At the concerts, they [even] sell tour collectibles under Premiere Collectibles. So basically, the whole thing is a money-making enterprise for Premiere Marketing.” Crew says that after the concerts, Premiere Marketing then offers an as-yet unidentified cut of the money it takes in to the charity.
Those who see Hannity as a friend to the people, our soldiers, the Constitution, and they go buy his books with that smug smart-ass grin on his face, would see this as a blatant attack from the liberal left, and no other explination would suffice.
