Sean Hannity Interview With Ferguson Protestor Descends Into Shouting Match

Sean Hannity interviewed a Ferguson protestor Thursday, and perhaps unsurprisingly, it didn't go too well.

The Fox News host spoke with Ivory Ned as he demonstrated with a crowd in front of the police station where two officers were shot just past midnight Thursday.

Ned explained the shooting as a reaction to Michael Brown's death: "[Brown's shooting] was the first action that happened. Then you have a reaction what happened. I’m not saying it was right."

Hannity wasn't having it.

"No, Ivory, you should be saying it's wrong," Hannity replied, adding that witnesses testified that Brown charged at Officer Darren Wilson. "I think the story here is, you shouldn't act that way, and people shouldn't be shooting cops. I don't hear you saying that, why not?"

Ned was quick to deliver a response.

"There are also witness that testified Mike Brown had his hands up. So you look at the facts first," Ned said. "The forensics showed... that there were bullets... with the hands... I'm no scientist, but the facts remain."

He continued: "The cops getting shot last night, that was not right. But that was not right for Mike Brown to be dead four hours on the ground."

Things just escalated from there.

Media outlets took notice of the exchange, with Salon calling Hannity "stunningly condescending," and Glenn Beck's The Blaze publishing the clip under the headline "Ferguson Protestor Hears Facts For The First Time."
