Richard Bey on UbaTV.com – HANNITY’S APOLOGIES

I worked at WABC radio for almost four years. Hannity and I shared a studio most of that time both when he was a local and later a syndicated host. ‘The Buzz’, co-hosted with Steve Malzberg directly followed the Hannity Show. Off-air, Sean is an ingratiating friendly sort, the kind of guy who claps you on the back and calls out ‘Hey, Buddy!’ We walked together almost everday when my show was shortened by Yankee Games, up Broadway, he to FoxNews and I to my apartment on 57th.

Sean is as likeable as Harold Hill (the musical one, not the mafia guy). And about as reliably honest. This particular clip from ubaTV came about when I heard his first apology for misleading or misinforming his audience. On his FOXNEWS show he presented clips, amateurishly edited together from different demonstrations to create the impression that a Teabagger demonstration was larger than it actually was. He was caught red-handed and he did apologize…the only time I’ve ever seen him do so. But obviously, not the only time he should have done so!

Winston Churchill once remarked about his political adversary Stanley Baldwin:

“He occasionally stumbled over the truth, but hastily picked himself up and hurried on as if nothing had happened….”

I think that fits Sean to a T! Or should I say Tea?!?

OUT OF MY MIND…

Have there been any new pop music forms since Grunge? We had Punk, Heavy Metal, Disco, Rap, Hip Hop, Grunge through the seventies and nineties. Have there been any new categories in this new millennium? If not, why is that? Do trance and techno count? I don’t know enough about them to say…….The movie THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT is better than alright. Much better: Mark Ruffalo, Annete Benning and Julianne Moore are superb. The kids are alright……..Inconvenient facts that will start some kind of argument if you mention them: The first person murdered on 9/11 was probably a Jew. Among the first terrorists indicted after 9/11 were two Jews who planned to blow up a mosque and assassinate a Republican congressman. The first people arrested after 9/11 were probably Israeli Mossad agents filming and mocking the attack. Try it……Is it just me or does John Boehnor’s skin seem even more orange than usual? And is that mascara or does he just have naturally black rimmed eyelids like the actor who plays Ricardo on ‘LOST’?……Anyone over fifty should read the sci-fi book ‘REPLAY’. I read it everywhere I go. Give it away as a gift on birthdays……INCEPTION is no longer the #1 movie in the US. THE OTHER GUYS made more money this past weekend. I must be the only one finding Will Ferril’s act growing thin. Steve Carrel too for that matter…….What happened to conservative Representative David Drier? A few years ago he was everywhere on the tube— FoxNews, CNN, MSNBC. Then rumors began circulating on line that he was gay and had been living with another man for years. I haven’t seen or heard about him since. Has anyone else? He won re-election in 2008 but took his profile so low he could walk under a door frame (perhaps the door frame to a closet)…… I’ll be back in NYC on August 17th for a week. I can’t wait. The days will get longer, I’m certain…….Why do the days in Florida seem so short?
