Russell Brand used to be kind of a polarizing figure, but he had recently won over many people with his takedowns of the mainstream media. Since picking apart his rude interviewers on Morning Joe last June, Brand has continued to call out media’s frequent insensitivity, agenda-pushing, and sensationalism on his Youtube page. Yesterday, Russel Brand released a video calling out Fox News’ Sean Hannity’s terrible coverage of the Israel-Palestine conflict.
While Brand opens with, “I don’t mean to be petty or trivial but Hannity looks like the Ken doll from Toy Story 3,” he continues on to intellectually tear apart Hannity’s insensitivity and badgering of his guest (who he doesn’t let speak).
“That’s amazing. One of the definitions of a terrorist is using intimidation to reach your goals, who in that situation is behaving like a terrorist, using intimidation, bullying, being unreasonable? Sean Hannity!”
Too bad this video will not be viewed as much as Hannity’s show. Bravo, Brand.
