On his nationally syndicated radio talk show Friday, host Sean Hannity called out the news media for failing to cover the Clinton Russia Uranium scandal, calling it a “disgrace,” and saying “they do nothing. That makes them complicit, and that puts this country in danger.”

“All the evidence of corruption and criminal conduct in one of the biggest American scandals in history involving national security is right in front of the face of every media person. And it involves their favorite country, Russia, Russia, Russia, and their favorite world leader, Putin, Putin, Putin,” Hannity said. “And they do nothing. They do nothing. That makes them complicit, and that puts this country in danger.”

Last week, The Hill reported that FBI was investigating Russian bribery of public officials to purchase Uranium. According to a Media Research Center study posted on NewsBusters, CBS has devoted only 69 seconds to this scandal, while ABC and NBC have not covered it. 

Below are Hannity’s remarks from his show Friday:

“It is a disgrace. And let me be just [as] straightforward as I can possibly be: The news media in this country, they just outright lie to you on a regular basis – nonstop almost, a year of conspiracy theories, a year of lies without any evidence, a years [sic] of misleading headlines, a year of false reports that they end up rescinding.

“You know, all the evidence of corruption and criminal conduct in one of the biggest American scandals in history involving national security is right in front of the face of every media person. And it involves their favorite country, Russia, Russia, Russia, and their favorite world leader, Putin, Putin, Putin. And they do nothing. They do nothing. That makes them complicit, and that puts this country in danger. Are you listening Fake Jake, and the rest of you over at fake news? 

“All the media cares about is destroying Donald Trump. That’s their only obsession. I don’t even think they’re in touch with their pathological hatred of the president at this point and how agenda driven they are at this point. They know not what they do.”
