Ellison Slams the "Worst Excuse For A Journalist," Epic Battle Ensues

Abby Zimet

In one of the teevee's most lively segments for some time, Minnesota's Rep. Keith Ellison ripped into Sean Hannity as immoral, a Republican shill and “the worst excuse for a journalist I have ever seen” after the Fox host ran some ridiculous clips showing Obama leading us into a sequester Apocalypse. It was all downhill from there: Both men yelled at each other with palpable distaste and then Hannity threw Ellison off the air. Speaking of downhill, Hannity's ratings are down 35% from last year. Try to get through the clip and you'll see why it couldn't happen to a better guy.
