Ted Koppel, who is best known for anchoring the show Nightline, was once accused by the liberal media watchdog F.A.I.R. as being a biased reporter — accusing him of favoring conservatives when selecting guests. Ironically, the famed reporter is now making headlines for telling conservative TV host Sean Hannity that he is “bad for America.” The interview between Koppel and Hannity, which can be seen below in part, aired during a segment on CBS “Sunday Morning.”
“You really think I’m bad for America?”, Hannity asked. Koppel responded, “Yeah.”
Koppel went on to say that Hannity is good at what he does. “You have attracted people who are determined that ideology is more important than facts,” said Koppel.
Hannity is a huge supporter of President Trump. He is often criticized by the liberal media for going out of his way to ignore the president’s mistakes and shortcomings. Hannity often defends these allegations by stating he has suggested to the president that he should ease up with the tweets, but that the president doesn’t listen to him.
Koppel’s statement comes on the heels of Hannity’s recent remarks about the president not being the person to blame over the botched healthcare bill. “After seven long years of Republicans promising to repeal and replace ObamaCare, not getting the job done is unacceptable,” said Hannity on his show Friday. “Let me be very clear here: This is not President Trump’s failure,” he added. “The president went above and beyond — did everything in his power — to get this bill across the finish line.”
