Nearly ten years on, not only has Hannity managed to avoid any form of waterboarding (short of that time he allowed Trump to piss all over his interview skills), but he also blows up at anyone who reminds the world about his failed commitment to the troops. We also don't expect this situation to change anytime soon, not least because it's going to be hard for him to sign any waivers now that his lawyer is in jail.

"Poor People Can't Own Household Appliances!"
These days, Fox bills itself as the champion of the working class -- the downtrodden, neglected, overlooked, salt-of-the-earth folks suffering the sort of economic anxiety that only hardcore race-baiting and tax cuts for the wealthy could solve.
It wasn't always like this, though. As hard as it is to picture, there was a time when Fox had such a hate-boner for the common man that they were questioning whether the poor deserved everyday items like microwaves, air conditioning, and television.
Reminder: He was railing against air conditioning for 46 million people in a month with temps above 110.
In one round-table discussion in 2011, for instance, Lou Dobbs and now-disgraced sex monster Bill O'Reilly poured hot shit on the idea that poverty exists by pointing out that many of those "in poverty" actually owned a thing or two.
"82 percent have a microwave. 78 percent have air conditioning. More than one television, 65 percent," O'Reilly listed off. "Cable or satellite TV, 64 percent. Cell phones, 55 percent. Personal computer, 39 percent."
The segment ended with Dobbs and O'Reilly reaffirming, not for the first time, that they weren't trying to diminish the suffering of poor people. They were just saying that the existence of poor people means the capitalist system is working perfectly, and how dare anyone try to rise above their station when they have the luxury of a waffle iron right there in their kitchen.

"Santa Is Real, So He Can't Be Black!"
A couple of months ago, Megyn Kelly landed herself in a right ol' spot of bother when she professed how totally alright blackface is. Which is kinda weird. Not just because that's a monstrous opinion, but also because the last time she covered the topic of white people becoming black people, she drew a line in the sand about exactly when it's acceptable and when it isn't.
