"Sean Hannity deceptively edited comments President Obama made during a 2007 Senate hearing to falsely accuse Obama of 'attacking General [David] Petraeus.' In fact, in comments cropped out of the video, Obama made clear his criticism was directed at President Bush and was 'not a criticism' of Petraeus."
Hannity deceptively edited Obama to falsely accuse him of "attacking General Petraeus" | Media Matters for America

Video and transcript, and transcript of Obama's statements, included.
What is it with Sean Hannity and deceptive editing? That's a serious ethical problem, not to mention tremendously insulting to his viewers. Dont you Fox fans feel a little uncomfortable about this?

I'm not sure which one is the biggest creep, Hannity or Beck. I read Hannity's forum
often, especially the "One and Only Elegibilty" thread, every time I see this I just
want to reach into my monitor and wipe the smirk off his ugly mug.

Ha, he's lifting up his chin in that picture -- usually that thick neck just goes straight from the ears to the shoulders.

They can get away with that kind of dishonesty because their fans don't ever watch mainstream media to know the difference. That's the 'family values' party for you.

The reason I'm not too worried about FoxNews is that the only people who think they are reliable and balanced are so far out in right field already that there would be no talking sense into them anyways.

He edits facts to fit his agenda. All media do it, he is just inexpert at covering it up.
