Sean Hannity’s Promotion Of Conspiracy Theories Exposed In Scathing Supercut

CNN's Brianna Keilar slammed the Fox News host for playing dumb on the dangerous QAnon conspiracy theory.

CNN’s Brianna Keilar on Friday used a damning supercut to call out Fox News host Sean Hannity’s yearslong promotion of conspiracy theories on his widely watched show.

Keilar also accused Hannity of playing dumb on the dangerous QAnon movement, describing his claim to not know “a single conservative or single Republican who frankly even knows what QAnon” is as “disingenuous.”

Hannity’s denial was “straight out of the playbook of conservatives who pretend to not know what it’s about while either tepidly denouncing it or channeling the energy of its believers,” argued Keilar.

She later aired the montage of Hannity “mainlining” conspiracy theories — from his promotion of the racist birther lie about former President Barack Obama to his support of former President Donald Trump’s falsehoods about a “stolen” election and his sowing of unfounded doubt about COVID-19 vaccines.
