Mike Dickinson recently appeared on the Sean Hannity show and tried to espouse liberal talking points about Fox News being racist but what he got in return was a public shaming that I’m sure he wish never happened.
Hannity had him on the show to contest his recent accusation that all Fox News does is “nothing but tell lies” which is the basis he uses to argue that the FCC should “monitor” Fox News and what they broadcast, which would be a blatant violation of their First Amendment rights.
Right off the bat Hannity asked him to defend his accusations and his position about the FCC. Dickinson, armed with only his talking points said “You tell lies, you distort the truth, you promote hate.”
Hannity, keeping his cool as he always does asked Dickinson “How do we promote hate?” To which Dickinson really didn’t have an answer, he more or less danced around the question and tried to claim that Fox “distorts” the news and that by calling the Affordable Care Act “Obamacare,” something the President himself has referred to it as, Fox News is promoting hate for the law. “Obamacare is not socialism,” he said.
“All you do on your show is call it Obamacare this, Obamacare that,” the congressional hopeful added, never really explaining how that promotes hatred.
Hannity, obviously irritated at the candidates assertions began to press him on the many broken promises surrounding the controversial law that’s been a failure by most every standard and Dickinson was never quite able to recover.
Hannity asked him “Did President Obama promise if you like your plan, you can keep your plan?”
The silence was deafening as the congressional hopeful managed to get out the words “He did.”
Hannity continued, not letting Dickinson off the hook.
“Have people gotten their plans cancelled?”He asked

The congressional hopeful looking to replace Eric Cantor in Virginia tried to redirect the conversation and get the focus away from the democrats broken promises and lies.
“They did, just like when George W. Bush stood on that aircraft carrier and said ‘mission accomplished,’” he nervously said.
Hannity fired back immediately, not letting the Democrat ignore the question and said “Bush has been out of office for six years,” then immediately asked “Did he say if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor?”
Dickinson, humbled because he knew he couldn’t get away from it admitted that the President “did say that.”
At this point Hannity was irritated at Dickinson’s avoidance of questions and pressed even harder, asking if Obama had promised that families would save $2500 a year on their premiums, to which Dickinson replied “He may have.”
This sent Hannity close to the edge and you could see the anger in his face.
“No, he said it,” Hannity said. “So the bottom line is, he told lies and mistruths, the very criticism you have against us — and yet you support him. … You sound like a hypocrite.”
Dickinson, knowing he was defeated reverted back to his original talking points.
“All you do on your show is promote Obamacare and imply it is socialism,” he added that his talked to many people who don’t think it’s “Big government.”
“It is big government,” Hannity said.
This cause Dickinson to blame the insurance companies for being “greedy” for kicking people off their plans and try to excuse the massive expansion of government into our lives by saying that “you can choose your own plan,” something we all know is a farce.
The best that the Democratic hopeful could muster for an explanation of Obama’s lies was that “there’s going to be small errors,” when rolling out something like this, forgetting that these errors were to have been accounted for in the three years they had to prepare.
