Sean Hannity delivers a monologue on 'media fascism' against conservative voices on the Tuesday broadcast of his FOX News Channel show:
HANNITY: The alt radical left propaganda destroy Trump media -- well, they've been out to destroy President Trump but also anybody who dares to support him and his policies. That's tonight's very important "Opening Monologue."
All right, it's no secret that the alt-radical destroy Trump propaganda media, they are completely biased. They're agenda-driven. They're lazy. They're ideological. They're incapable of actually delivering honest news coverage to you, the American people.
Now, we know for a fact they helped elect Barack Obama -- they never vetted him. They colluded with the Clinton campaign -- that was proven through WikiLeaks. And we know that they're on a mission to take down President Trump. Simply put, they want him thrown out of office, if possible, hand-cuffed, mug-shotted, perp walked and put in jail.
Since they won't stop until that happens, well, now the destroy Trump media, they're advancing their attack and they're targeting outlets and people and individuals who refuse to push their biased talking points and fall in line with their agenda.
By the way, they hate Fox News. They hate talk radio. Matter of fact, they hate any conservative who supports this president and supports his policies.
Their goal right now is to shut down and completely silence what they see as, quote, "opposition." It's evolved into what I am calling tonight media fascism.
Let me explain. Now, last night, I told you that I have become the target of a smear and slander campaign. Now, the alt-radical destroy Trump media quickly, immediately, they picked up on all the smears and lies. It spread like wildfire all around the country, despite the fact these allegations were completely false.
The individual who made them quickly recanted these bogus claims, but the destroy Trump media, they wanted a cheap headline. A simple, basic fundamental Google search would have ended the witch hunt against me. But these lazy so-called journalists -- they -- if they did that, they would have discovered this individual has incredible, serious, severe credibility issues and has targeted and tried to smear and slander me for well over a decade.
But as I said, this isn't about me or any individual. It's so much bigger. It is about silencing every single conservative voice in the country.
Now, the seeds of this have already been planted. The playbook has already been revealed. The destroy Trump media viciously attacked then-candidate Trump and now President Trump.
Want an example? I'll give you a few. Take a look at these disgusting examples.

SETH MEYERS, WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENTS' DINNER, APRIL 30, 2011: Donald Trump has been saying that he will run for president as a Republican, which is surprising since I just assumed he was running as a joke.

VAN JONES, CNN, NOV. 9, 2016: This was a whitelash. This was a whitelash against a changing country. It was a whitelash against a black president, in part. And that's the part where the pain comes.

HANNITY: If it wasn't so serious, it would be funny. Now, these media fascists, they've been going after the president non-stop since November the 9th. But as we've seen, the commander-in-chief to his credit refuses to sit back and take it. He's been fighting back at everything that has been thrown at him.
Now, this has obviously frustrated the destroy Trump hate Trump media, and since they can't take down the big prize, President Trump, they're now redirecting some of their attacks and targeting every White House adviser -- by the way, even the first lady, members of the president's family, his daughter. Even the president's 10-year-old son is a target.
Now, tonight, it's time to label what we're seeing for what it really is, and that's why I call it media fascism.
