Guilt by association?
The left is nothing if not consistent in its hypocrisy, as MSNBC host Joy Reid eagerly proved on Saturday’s edition of “AM Joy.”
Discussing the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse scandal, Reid judged Fox News hosts Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson guilty of similar behavior for no other reason than being employed at Fox News.
“The two biggest hypocrites on this, I have to say, are Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson… They had lots to say about Harvey Weinstein. And you know what? What they said about Harvey Weinstein is true.”
The rare acknowledgement of reality from an MSNBC on-air personality is refreshing, but the feel good moment didn’t last because Reid proceeded to compare Hannity and Tucker to Bill O’Reilly, who reached an agreement with Fox News on his departure from the network earlier this year after The New York Times reported on settlements totaling $13 million being reached with five women who complained of inappropriate behavior.
O’Reilly has steadfastly denied any wrongdoing, insisting the effort “was a political and financial hit job.”
“But, I mean, they’re sitting in the seats of Bill O’Reilly, sitting in his chair,” Reid said, as if that had any meaning whatsoever.
She then read a tweet from Carlson, which declared: “It is time for justice for Harvey Weinstein. He is a serial predator.”
“He’s sitting in Bill O’Reilly’s chair! At Roger Ailes‘ network!” cried Reid, who played judge, jury and executioner in finding Tucker guilty by association of alleged crimes attributed to the aforementioned men.
