The Daily Show Proves That Fox News Is Fake News
I was thinking of doing an analysis here but analyzing crazy fact less conspiracy theories (with no science or evidence or logic involved) is a pointless endeavor. So I just thought I would put up a bunch of evidence that Hannity & Alex Jones (Infowars) are really the same. there are a few minor differences but the structures of their bull remains the same. 1. Invoke fear & 2. Push baseless conspiracy theory. This can actually be argued to be the entire Fox news & right wing media model for "news" (or more accurately, "Nazi style propaganda campaigns") as pointed out in the "deep state" proof below. In any case, the following prooves that Sean Hannity is just a cheap conspiracy theorist.
Conspiracy Theorist Alex Jones: Sean Hannity Called Me To Say We're Doing A "Great Job" And That "We Appreciate You"
ALEX JONES (HOST): And I tell you, they got the new Fox News director for Ailes, he was on this morning going “oh it’s true, Hillary’s going to win by 12 points,” he’s this real Nellie guy, “and don’t listen to others these unhealthy polls.” They are really --
JOE BIGGS: A psy-op.
JONES: They had to take Fox down though so that they couldn’t challenge it.
BIGGS: Well yeah if you start watching Fox now you start seeing they’re starting to lean more towards Clinton, every time you hear these guys except for Sean Hannity, like it’s --
JONES: By the way, Hannity, well I’m not going to get Hannity in trouble, but he did reach out to us, he said “great job, we appreciate you, I’m trying my best.” They’re threatening to fire him right now, so he reached out to us and said he appreciates us. I just, this country is in deep crap brother, they are couping Fox News.
Alex Jones: "The Sean Hannity Show is now The Alex Jones Show"
Side note: Here is exactly what Alex Jones has said about the Sandy Hook massacre Jones on Sandy Hook: “Staged,” “inside job,” “undoubtedly there’s a cover-up,” “giant hoax,” “the whole thing was fake,” “in my view, manufactured”Hannity again steals from Alex Jones, interviewing a pro-Trumper who has contributed to Infowars Hannity’s program is increasingly overlapping with Jones’ show
After his sycophantic interview with President Donald Trump, Fox News host Sean Hannity aired equally fawning commentary from audience members. In one of these seemingly random interviews, Hannity spoke to Kevin Martin, a man who has previously reported for and hosted Alex Jones’ Infowars. Martin’s insights included his opinion that Trump is doing a “phenomenal job” and that “a lot of the news media is fake, except Hannity.” Flattered by the interview, Hannity responded by saying, “I want this promo.”
Martin was introduced on Infowars in February 2017, after a video of him at the inauguration went viral, and he appeared on the show multiple times, functioning as a guest, a reporter, and a host. During a February 8 broadcast that also featured far-right troll Milo Yiannopoulos, Martin used the exposure to discuss his time at the Women’s March, noting that “it was a bunch of lesbian -- just a lot of angry, angry, angry women,” and claiming when he left, he “took three showers with bleach and steel wool.” Martin additionally appeared in an Infowars video about Jeff Sessions’ appointment as attorney general in which the host claims the reason Sessions’ appointment was held up was “because he is so against what’s going on with these pedophile secret societies,” alluding to Pizzagate conspiracy theories.
Hannity’s and Jones’ shows have become so similar in the era of Trump that in August, Jones remarked, “The Sean Hannity Show is now The Alex Jones Show.” Similarly, in June, Jones commented that “Sean Hannity is currently the main leader of the resistance against the globalists,” adding that Hannity “has the most courage of anybody in the media.” And in 2016, Jones claimed that Hannity called him to say, “Great job, we appreciate you.”

Hannity Defends Alex Jones From Hillary Clinton: "Really, She Doesn’t Believe In Freedom Of Speech?" Sean Hannity: “What Did Alex Jones Say That’s So ‘Alt-Right?’”
SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Who ever heard of an “alt-right” movement until this week? I’d never heard of it. Somebody said, “Well, Steve Bannon said he’s an alternative-right.” Probably he’s saying that he’s not an establishment Republican that is weak and timid and feckless and visionless. What is this alt-right thing that they’ve come up with? A new name to describe anybody that’s a conservative that actually believes we ought to have borders, that we should enforce the law, that we should build a wall? Somebody that recognizes it’s a national security threat -- somehow that's racist?
She's out there accusing, what, Alex Jones? Really, she doesn’t believe in freedom of speech? What did Alex Jones say that's so “alt-right?”Sean Hannity has really gone off the rails lately, but it's earned him a new fan: Alex Jones Jones and Hannity are joined in their subservience to the president In an indication of how reckless and conspiratorial Sean Hannity’s Trump-boosting Fox News program has become, America’s best known conspiracy theorist, Alex Jones, now routinely heaps praise on Hannity, cheering that his show sounds like The Alex Jones Show and praising Hannity for pushing toxic conspiracy theories, such as those about the murder of Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich.
Like Hannity, Jones -- who is the progenitor of the so-called 9/11 truth movement and has spread conspiracy theories about the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, the Las Vegas massacre, and other tragedies -- is a sycophantic devotee of President Donald Trump’s.
Over the past year, Hannity and Jones have both focused on offering flailing defenses of Trump’s unpopularpresidency, making it no surprise that Hannity would eventually catch Jones’ eye and become a routine subject of The Alex Jones Show.
Since June, Jones has praised Hannity as “one of the only real journalists left on broadcast and cable television” and happily noted that “the entire evil globalist system that’s anti-human and wants a world where humans are obsolete hates” him. After Hannity called for investigations into high-level officials of the previous administration, Jones said it was “very powerful to see Sean Hannity telling it like it is.” Jones claims that other Fox programming -- with the exception of Lou Dobbs’ Fox Business show -- is part of an anti-Trump conspiracy, saying that at Fox, “only Hannity is still fighting” and calling his show the “pinhole” that is saving Trump from total isolation.
For his part, Hannity sided with Jones after Jones called on NBC to release the full footage of his interviewwith NBC host Megyn Kelly. According to Jones, Hannity also called him in 2016 to tell him he was doing a “great job” and to say “we appreciate you.”
What seems to please Jones most about Hannity is that Hannity reminds him of himself. In August, Jones announced that “The Sean Hannity Show is now The Alex Jones Show.” And after The Washington Post’s Erik Wemple picked up on parallels between Jones and Hannity, Jones said on his show that “The Washington Post has demonized him saying he’s becoming Alex Jones, that’s good.”
Jones says the reason for the parallels is that both men get their information from the same or similar sources. During his August 21 broadcast, Jones called Hannity “the new Alex Jones” and described supposed meetings between Hannity and unnamed “high level” officials, saying that those officials tell Hannity to listen to what Jones is saying, because Jones knows about “black budget, black ops, globalism, C.O.G.,” referring to continuity of government. Jones has also said that “suddenly Sean Hannity is saying the exact words, the exact facts” that Jones spouts because Hannity gets information from high-level administration officials.
Jones is especially a fan of two specific conspiracy theories promoted by Hannity: that there is an ongoing attempt to overthrow the Trump presidency and that the murder of Seth Rich absolves Trump against claims of campaign collusion with Russia.
One of the most frequently repeated claims on The Alex Jones Show, dating to the early months of the Trump presidency, is that America is on the brink of a civil war, with leftist forces poised to depose Trump. Hannity echoed these claims in June, albeit calling it a “soft coup,” whereas Jones frequently fearmongers about the prospect of mass violence when talking about the subject. Jones was nonetheless appreciative of the “soft coup” claim, taking credit for initially pushing similar claims and saying that his “biggest victory” is that Hannity and others are “saying there’s a C.O.G. plan to overthrow the president. There’s a coup against the election. There’s a coup against the American people.”
Jones has also praised Hannity’s shameful promotion of conspiracy theories about Rich, who police believe was murdered in July 2016 in a botched robbery attempt in Washington, D.C. Conspiracy theorists, most prominently Hannity, seized on Rich’s employment with the Democratic National Committee in an attempt to discredit official accounts that hacked DNC emails were stolen by forces affiliated with the Kremlin. While advertisers left Hannity over his disgusting exploitation of the Rich murder, Jones has defended the Fox News host, complaining that “they have headlines out there that I’m hatefully attacking the family, and so is Sean Hannity, for even questioning this. Now it’s almost like we killed Seth Rich.” During other shows, Jones claimed that Hannity was merely “investigating reasonable murder investigations” and called Hannity’s inquiries “very legitimate.”
Jones, who claims to have a personal relationship with Trump and other officials in his administration, also calls the Trump-Hannity relationship a “major bromance going on forever.” During an August show, Jones called Hannity “one of the most important people in America now” because Trump “religiously watches” Hannity’s show, and he urged his supporters to “lobby” Hannity “to keep hammering the truth of the planned coup.” In June, Jones claimed that Hannity “talks to President Trump two or three times a day, sometimes at length.”
Here’s what Jones has to say about Hannity:
Jones has lavished praise on Hannity, who has returned the favor
Jones is seeing increasing parallels between his claims and what Hannity says on his show
Jones celebrated Hannity for adopting his claim that Trump is under imminent threat of a coup attempt
Jones praised Hannity for pushing conspiracy theories about the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich
Jones purports to know how Trump feels about Hannity
Sean Hannity Unhinged: “Everything That Conspiracy Theorists Have Said” Is “True” Hannity: “It’s A Media Assault On Your Mind”SEAN HANNITY (HOST): I want to go over this, what I'm calling a Republican establishment, Democratic establishment, media establishment, globalist, lobbyist, UN establishment. It's everything that conspiracy theorists have said over the years and all of this is out there now in the open, in terms of what Hillary Clinton thinks and what she believes and what John Podesta thinks about Catholics and well let's have left wing activists plot a Catholic Spring and lets infiltrate the Catholic Church. Let's advance our progressive ideology to foment revolution. Who thinks like this? This is like, you know, Communism in the Soviet Union propaganda. It’s really sad but it's also true and it's also reality and it's also the world you live. You know, Hillary Clinton’s dream of a hemispheric common market, open trade and open borders. She said that in one of her speeches. Hillary Clinton campaign said they wanted to face Trump in the general election. Okay, let's see what happens in 27 days. I still think Trump can win. Now for the Nate Silvers of the world who say “Hannity doesn't believe in polls, he only cites online polling after Trump wins the debate.” No, that’s not true. The polls right now are not accurate, because the polls out now reflect 72 straight hours more coverage of the Access Hollywood tapes that we now know that NBC purposely delayed the release of, to time it before the debate as TMZ reports. So it doesn't reflect Donald Trump's incredible debate performance, it doesn't reflect yet another 1200 Wikileak drops today, it doesn't reflect what we've learned from the previous Wikileaks drops, it doesn't reflect that, you know, that Hillary knew that Saudi Arabia and Qatar were funding ISIS, it doesn't reflect the media -- you know what this is, this is a media assault on your mind. What you mean by that Hannity? Cause they’re propagandizing you, they’re posing as objective journalists and they are not as we know about Univision, as we know about NBC, as we know about CNBC, as we know about the New York Times and the Boston Globe and CNN. And we also know that they conspire and release questions to Hillary ahead of time. We know all of this is true.
Alex Jones: The Texas church gunman carried out his attack while under “mind control” from the deep state Jones: “That guy tried to kill his high command and they said, ‘Put this guy into a black project. Scramble his brain. This guy’s a perfect candidate as a wind-up toy’”
ALEX JONES (HOST): And the deep state wants to embarrass Trump with more terror attacks and it’s all connected to the Antifa, this individual [Sutherland Springs, TX, church shooter] Devin Kelley in mental institutions the Air Force put him in. Trying to go to bases with guns to kill his commanding officers. That’s the Associated Press and CBS News. And protected and allowed to assault his wife, and other people, and children, and to be a pedophile. And then protected, and then turned loose. You know he was told, “You’re our little secret agent now of the deep state. You’re not going to go to jail. Don’t kill your commanding officers. We have a job for you.” And just like a wind-up toy right out of a government mental institutions (sic), allowed to get guns, the files not put into the [National Instant Criminal Background Check System] on purpose so their wind-up toy -- classic manchurian candidate. Let’s put Devin Kelley on screen. And what did our source start talking about yesterday? He said, “I can’t get into this, and I can’t get into him, and I can’t get into his background, but it’s all in the news.” And absolutely there it is. Mind control. If they can’t hype up a revolution on November 4th, they’ll activate their sleeper cells.
And let me tell you something. They got hardcore drugs, they got programming, they got it all. And the proof is they put him in a mental institution for trying to kill his chain of command with weapons and they let him out and then they let him continue attack people and did nothing. They protected him just like Maj. [Nidal] Hasan at Fort Hood for two years was talking to the number two in Al-Qaeda about his attacks and the CIA knew and did nothing, because they’re -- look at that mind control. Look at that guy. I bet if you did an autopsy he’s been under electroshock therapy, you name it. That guy tried to kill his high command and they said, “Put this guy into a black project. Scramble his brain. This guy’s a perfect candidate as a wind-up toy.” “You want to be a killer, son? You’re going to get to be a killer now. Heh heh. You’re in the program whether you like it or not.”

Sean Hannity Warns Listeners About The “Globalist Establishment” And “Mind Control”
SEAN HANNITY (HOST): I am sick and tired of the Republican establishment, and we’re going to deal with this in 21 days. In exactly three weeks from today people go to the polls and we’ll decide our future. But I gotta tell you, there is a corporate establishment, they’re in bed with the Republican establishment, they’re in bed with the Democratic establishment. They are in bed with the globalist establishment. And we have been lied to on a scale, and we have been manipulated on a scale that is frankly, in my opinion, is reminiscent of former Soviet Union propaganda and mind control. That’s how bad I think it is. You know, look at what we discovered, the Politico reporter Glenn Rush, oh isn’t that nice, who identifies himself as a hack for John Podesta. Just please don’t tell anybody I’m a total hack for you. And then WikiLeaks they got all the journalists that dined at the Clinton’s staffer’s homes. Isn’t that nice?The "Deep State" Correlation Between Jones & Hannity & Fox News (ONE of the many Conspiracy Theories All the Crazies Adopted Together... pretty much confirming that they are lies as these are all fake news outlets on par with pizzagate's infowars)
Alex Jones Says Trump Firing Comey Is About Stopping The Deep State "Fake Russia Narrative" Jones: "It’s Also The Fact That Comey Is Seen As Weak And As Very, Very Manipulative But In A Candy Ass Way"
ALEX JONES (HOST): Obviously I hate to tell folks even the general area where we get our information from concerning the White House, because the media has a big field day with it and then tries to shut off those sources. But I was on the phone very, very late last night talking to multiple sources, and then I called Roger Stone about 11 Texas time, midnight his time, we talked for over an hour and he confirmed a lot of what I was learning from other sources. And of course Roger is one of the only people now that Trump still routinely talks to outside of the White House.
Now I don’t know how much Roger will get into today, but I from my other sources separately have exactly what happened with Comey. Comey was compromised and had been compromised for a long time. And was being clearly manipulated by deep state sources to try to exert pressure onto the White House to have the White House carry out the deep state's political aims with this whole fake Russia narrative that if they didn’t basically do what John McCain and others wanted they would continue on with hearings and try to impeach the president. So they’re blackmailing the president with this fake Russia narrative. Senator Rand Paul obviously knows all about this, he has come out and said that’s basically what it is as well, said good riddance to Comey.
Hannity responds to report Trump is under investigation: "biggest act ... of retribution we have ever seen from the deep state" Sean Hannity: “It has now turned into a political witch hunt against the president of the United States”
SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Anonymous sources telling The Washington Post that the special counsel, Robert Mueller, is investigating President [Donald] Trump for possible obstruction of justice. Now this is the biggest act -- I want you to pay attention -- of retribution we have ever seen from the deep state in the history of this country. Just as we have been saying on this program, it has now turned into a political witch hunt against the president of the United States.

ALEX JONES (HOST): The literal grandchildren of the folks that financed the Bolshevik Revolution out of New York and London are now bragging saying Bolshevik 2 is launching. I told you over and over again that I believe their November 4th launch terror date was a smokescreen for them to begin launching terror attacks in October. They will get successively more intense until you basically come punch-drunk to them, then they’ll launch their main attack.
Here’s the other big news. On Saturday night, Monday morning -- Sunday morning, they released O.J. [Simpson] just 20 hours before the attack took place so all the media would come and be in place to cover this event. The whole thing has the hallmarks of being scripted by deep state Democrats and their Islamic allies using mental patient cut-outs. I’m Alex Jones.

e: Those from "the deep state" claiming Trump is under federal investigation have "Trump derangement syndrome" and "a sickness, a pathology to them"
AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): Washington Post last week said the president was under investigation. Turns out those were five anonymous sources, so we don't know who was giving that information. So, the president tweeted last week. He said, "I am being investigated for firing the the FBI director by the man who told me to fire the FBI director."
EARHARDT: So, David, he is not under investigation, right?
DAVID BOSSIE: Well that's right. He's not under investigation, and that's important for the American people to understand. Look, there is an ongoing counterintelligence investigation into whether or not Russia meddled in our elections. We all understand that, but we have to understand there's no underlying basis for the Trump campaign to have been involved with the Russians. There's no facts, no evidence whatsoever that the president or our team had any coordination with the Russians. This is a ridiculous allegation, and it's going to be proven false over the summer at some point, that [Russia probe special counsel Robert] Mueller is going to come out and have to acknowledge that there's no evidence. Look, the -- we've been under investigation for over seven months now, almost a year, I'd say, since these allegations -- ridiculous allegations first came up. So, we've had no evidence come up. The Washington Post and others want to create these stories and there's -- with anonymous sources from the -- from what we call the deep state. These are the folks that want to do damage to this president, want to try to nullify an election, really are what I'd consider -- I'd say they're guilty of what Charles Krauthammer termed the Trump derangement syndrome. That these people have a sickness, a pathology to them, that really is a -- we have a problem here in America.
Fox & Friends cites “one of the online blogs” to claim James Comey might be behind "deep-state leaks” Steve Doocy, citing The Gateway Pundit: "You've got to wonder whether or not Jim Comey was actually the source of" the leaks Following former FBI Director James Comey's testimony before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy cited "one of the online blogs" to claim that, "Out of the 39 deep state leaks, I think I think it was about ten of them related to Jim Comey, so you've got to wonder whether or not Jim Comey was actually the source of" the leaks. Doocy's source appears to be the serially incorrect right-wing blog The Gateway Pundit, which, following Comey's testimony, wrote that "Many of these 'leaks' are now proven fabrications and the probability that many remaining ‘leaks’ are completely inaccurate is very high." The Gateway Pundit is a conspiracy-theory peddling right-wing blog with ties to the “alt-right” that is regularly propped up by Fox News, and that in the Trump administration has participated in daily White House press briefings. From the June 9 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends:
STEVE DOOCY (HOST): So, [former FBI Director James Comey] revealed that he leaked this stuff through the guy at Columbia University, the law professor, in hopes that they would come up with a special counsel, and a couple of weeks later they absolutely did.
