I do not know why one would watch a pundit.

Is funny because those that blast the mouth pieces on the left are fine with these parrots for the Ultra Right.

Hannity has been a hypocrite on nearly every single issue (just look at how much he favored foreign intervention, mass surveillance, anti-whistle blowers, and pro-big government during the Bush years) so I no longer pay attention to what he has to say.

The difference is the ones on the right have been proven correct while the mouth pieces on the left have been discredited liars !!!
Many wrote books about it before the Mueller report came out proving the mouth pieces on the right were in fact right in their view points !!!
As the investigation into the investigators comes to a conclusion they will be proven again to be correct !!!
Leftist media will be loathed to mention anything about the investigations of the current DOJ !!!
It would add to their lack of creditability exposing them as the liars they are and have been !!!

LOL. That was funny. Keep on believing that.

All those from Left and Right are just parroting the lines from their Parties and all they care about is money going into their pockets.

So all they care about is having enough sheep watching them so they have good ratings and they can cash in.

Carlson and (especially) Hannity are cut from the same cloth. Ugly natured, negative naysayers of doom and gloom, who have found a certain disgruntled, bigoted audience who think the same way they do. I could never listen to either one of them from more than about 2 seconds before changing channels. They are an insult to my sensibilities and intelligence.

I agree with you. I read a variety of news. Read "THE INTERCEPT" Left leaning but highly accurate.

CNN has news from quite a few other news places including some from Fox news. How can you find the truth if you don't read both sides? As a Independent/Democrat; I do.

Hannity attracts a fraction of the audience that watches Monday Night Football or top rated network shows. Then there's Netflix, HULU, Amazon etc.

Most people are not talking about last night’s cable news at the water cooler.
And yet he has the highest viewership of any pundit.

Not that I am defending Hannity. I stopped watching him when Combs was taken off the show. He is so partisan, it is pointless for me to watch him without a counterpoint. Even if I do agree with him on many issues, I get nothing out of it. There is nothing intellectually stimulating about it

I think liberals probably feel the same way about most CNN pundits. Probably why nobody is watching that station anymore. Republicans don’t watch because of the blatant bias. And liberals don’t watch because there is no point in watching a one sided argument.

though, his show does provide a daily updated synopsis of what is being uncovered...who is filing for what, who the players are/were, etc, etc.

However, If there is no 'end", as in people being indicted, its a complete waste of time.
They're the 2 most interesting for me to watch other than The Five.

I remember Carlson years ago when he was kind of a bow tied George Will clone. Go where the big bucks are I suppose.
