    It's pretty sad when the "hardest-hitting" news program airs on Comedy Central.

    Who are FOX's biggest sponsors? Pressure should be placed on them not to deal with a network that deliberately lies.

    Default Sean Hannity admits to video 'screwup'

    Hannity: Jon Stewart Was Right About Protest Footage (VIDEO)
    Fox News' Sean Hannity responded to Jon Stewart Wednesday evening after the Daily Show host called out the network for using old footage from a larger September 12, 2009 "Tea Party' protest to illustrate a much smaller health care rally on Capitol Hill last week.

    Speaking directly to the camera, Hannity said that it pained him to admit it, but Stewart was correct.

    "And although it pains me to say this, Jon Stewart, Comedy Central, he was right. Now on his program last night, he mentioned that we had played some inccorect video on this program last week while talking about the Republican health care rally on Capitol Hill. He was correct, we screwed up. we aired some video of a rally in september along with a video from the actual event. It was an inadverdent mistake, but a mistake none the less. So, Mr. Stewart, you were right. We apologize. But by the way, we wanna thank you and all your writers for watching."

    Didn't they use footage from some other event FOR the Sept. 12 rallys?
