NYT Reporter: Hannity Could Be Next To Go At Fox News Due To ‘Almost Propaganda-Like Attitude’ [Watch]

Scarborough: “it’s also very confusing because he does it in Russian”

During today’s Morning Joe discussion of the ouster of Bill O’Reilly at Fox News, Joe Scarborough asked, “Do they remake over the entire network? Is anybody else in the [Murdoch] family’s crosshairs right now?”

Replied New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters: “I think you have to look at somebody like Sean Hannity, and question whether or not his almost propaganda-like attitude and programming every night is going to be acceptable in the minds of the family, which is clearly trying to shift the network in a different direction.”

Quipped Scarborough: “it’s also very confusing because he does it in Russian.” Note: that’s a variation on a line from years ago about Pat Buchanan delivering his remarks in German.

So Hannity could be on the hot seat because of his “propaganda-like attitude and programming every night.” Hannity might be a reliable voice of the Republican/Trump line. But are the primetime MSNBC anchors any less devoted to pushing the Dem/liberal talking points of the day? Should they be in their network’s “crosshairs?”

The Reagan Tax Cuts Worked

Thanks to "bracket creep," the inflation of the 1970s pushed millions of taxpayers into higher tax brackets even though their inflation-adjusted incomes were not rising. To help offset this tax increase and also to improve incentives to work, save, and invest, President Reagan proposed sweeping tax rate reductions during the 1980s. What happened? Total tax revenues climbed by 99.4 percent during the 1980s, and the results are even more impressive when looking at what happened to personal income tax revenues. Once the economy received an unambiguous tax cut in January 1983, income tax revenues climbed dramatically, increasing by more than 54 percent by 1989 (28 percent after adjusting for inflation).
