Over the weekend, Sean Hannity sat down with legendary broadcaster Ted Koppel, who told the Fox News host that he thought he was "bad for America." In response, Hannity quickly lashed out, which continued during his Monday night program.

Hannity on Koppel

Ever since the start of the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump engaged in a war of words with the media. As the press continued to push back at Trump and his political agenda, the former host of "The Apprentice" accused the media of rigging the election, while later labeling well-respected news outlets as "fake news" following his win last November.

While Trump has made it clear he's not a fan of journalists and reporters, he's found a safe space on Fox News, especially in the company of Sean Hannity. After Hannity clashed with Ted Koppel during the aforementioned interview, the popular right-wing host accused the CBS network of editing the clips to make him look bad. As seen on the March 27 edition of "Hannity" on Fox News, the battle between the two continued.

Kicking off his show on Monday night, Sean Hannity quickly ignored the current news of the day to focus on his spat with Ted Koppel. "In my honest opinion, the exchange was a very good give and take," Hannity said, before adding, "but here's all that CBS Sunday Morning decided to air." After playing the short clip that aired over the weekend, Hannity ripped into Koppel and the network.

"That's the difference, Ted, between me and you. I'm honest with my audience," Sean Hannity went on to say, while noting, "I don't pretend that I'm fair and balanced and objective.

You do." The Fox News host attempted to clarify, labeling himself as an "advocate journalist."

Hannity on fake news

Sean Hannity went on to accuse Ted Koppel of "edited fake news," echoing similar remarks he made in a recent tweet.

Hannity continued to hit back against "edited fake news," accusing "other networks" of doing the same. "You proved my point I’ve been saying since 2007 and 2008," he continued, stating, "Journalism is dead in America." Hannity closed his opening monologue by mocking Koppel, and praising his network in the process.
