Media Matters: Stop with the bully tactics trying to silence Hannity

Media Matters,

I am sure the unhinged hatred your writers and journalists have toward a great patriot by the name of Sean Hannity comes from the fact that he is a conservative and openly supports President Trump. It isn’t fair and it’s unconstitutional.

Your writers are trying to get Hannity, a family man, fired for exercising his constitutional rights and values because your people have a problem with that.

The United States Constitution is clear on the right of free press, which Hannity has always followed according to the law. Your people have taken things that he says out of context, using sound bites to convince his sponsors to get him fired. That’s not OK and is unethical.

I know your company is not fan of President Trump and you have the right to express that, but don’t punish the people, the majority of Americans, who do support the President and who watch Hannity on a regular, nightly basis.

Sean Hannity has made it clear, he is not a journalist but a talk show host. So let the people make the choice to hear his opinions on what he thinks can help the United States. Truthfully, as a viewer of his show, I see his sincerity and the love he has for our country and the people. Why try to ruin that?

I wouldn’t be where I am at today as a successful writer and a conservative if it wasn’t for Mr. Hannity. During a point in my life, almost 10 years ago, I was trying to find myself, what I stood for, and what I personally believed in. I clicked on the news and saw Hannity’s show for the first time. He educated and influenced my decision, and I used my Constitutional right and chose to be a Conservative.

Along came the elections of Barrack Obama and his campaign. Mr. Hannity was the only one without rose-colored glasses who spoke from the heart to inform voters why Obama should not be President.

A few years later, after my family and I made the Jewish right of return to Israel, we experienced the war with Hamas living in Ashqelon, southern Israel. During the war it was hit daily by rockets fired from Hamas. Most of mainstream media reported that Israel was the instigator and the bad guys in that war. I remember like it was yesterday that Sean Hannity actually flew to Israel and reported the truth of what went on here. He has earned my trust and loyalty for his efforts trying to do the right thing.

I respectfully request you and your people leave Hannity alone allowing the people the right to choose what news program they feel is right for them.

Lastly, I know Liberals have overly used the Nazi label, but if you do the proper research, you will see that it was Nazis who censored the media. That’s something to think about as you try to silence Mr. Hannity’s voice on the air.

David Weissman was born in Queens, NY and served 13 years in the U.S. Army as a chaplain assistant, including two deployments to Afghanistan. Upon being honorably discharged he made the Jewish right of return (Aliyah) and moved to the city of Ashkelon in Israel where he experienced the war with Hamas in the summer of 2014. David is now a freelance writer living in the city of Efrat in the Jerusalem district.
