SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Members of the Trump administration, they're beginning to shine a bright light on these dark corners of this fake news industry, and now thanks to social media, you can too. 

[...]

I'm not encouraging you to get in your neighbor's face like former President Obama did, liberals would say I'm calling for violence. But you can call out fake news right at the source. For example, you can tell fake news Jake Tapper exactly what you think of his interview with Anthony Scaramucci, you can do it on twitter. Or you can message Brian Stelter humpty-dumpty, Jeff Zucker's stenographer about his Russia, Russia, Russia obsession and lack of desire to be fair and balanced and point out Hillary, Uranium One, and felonies she committed. And of course you've got liberal Joe, calling the president a schmuck, a goon, a thug and mentally unhinged. Great job, NBC. And if you don't think those remarks are appropriate, just send him a tweet. And over there of course you have Mika helping out, the overtop feigning outrage everyday, her disgusting treatment of Kellyanne Conway, very despicable. You want to take it to the next level? Write a message to their bosses, send a tweet over to Zucker over at fake news CNN or Andy Lack from NBC fake news. Right now the media is living in their little bubble. It is our job to remind them that there is an America way outside of New York, D.C., Los Angeles and San Francisco. Tonight, technology is now making it possible for you to take your point of view directly to the source and show America's elites that the forgotten men and forgotten women of this country voted for this agenda and they want it completed and for them to stop lying to you. Take to the social media, and I think you're going to have a positive impact.
