Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) said Fox News host Sean Hannity’s “business model” was “bad for America.”
Host Jake Tapper said, “You have harsh words in the book for partisans on both sides, including Fox News host Sean Hannity.
Sasse said, “I told Sean I would be happy to debate him in a neutral environment about whether or not his business model is good for America because it’s bad for America.”
He added, “Today the most watched cable programing in America, Hannity is number one, and Rachel Maddow is number two.
They both have the same basic business model which is try to intensify the political addictions of the 1 percent of America that’s listening to you, and you can always demonize your opponent, never give a fair shake to what the other argument is.”
