Watch Ted Koppel Tell Sean Hannity that He's "Bad for America"

Sean Hannity reacts to Ted Koppel telling him he's bad for America during an interview aired on March 26, 2017. Speaking with Fox News' Sean Hannity, Koppel explained that Hannity and people like him are contributing to the continued division between Americans because of the way they emphasize ideology over facts.

"I think if we don't do that, meaning the press, I don't think anybody else will", said Baquet.

"No, you know why [you're bad for America?]?"

Hannity was interviewed for the Sunday show's cover story about partisan media, and sensed some unease by Koppel when he discussed his role as an opinion host.

Veteran news anchor Ted Koppel revealed to Fox News' Sean Hannity that his show and brand of journalism were harming the country.

"Really?" the Fox News host asked.

But Koppel was undeterred by Hannity's veneer of innocence and instead emphasized his ability to manipulate the emotions of his viewers.

National Football League teams to vote on whether Raiders will move to Las Vegas
This is the third National Football League team relocation recently, as the Rams, Chargers, and now Raiders are all moving. The Raiders have been on the move quite a bit in their almost six decades as a pro football franchise.

Koppel interviewed Hannity for a segment on the deepening political divide in America on "CBS Sunday Morning" when the discussion turned to conservative talk radio and the spoon-feeding of information to viewers.

"I'm not Ted Koppel". The FCC, which was believed to have been under pressure from then President Ronald Reagan, eliminated the Doctrine in 1987.

"No, let me finish the sentence before you do that."

Following the airing of the interview on CBS, Hannity fired back on Twitter alleging the interview had been cut significantly from 45 minutes to less than two, and called the segment "fake edited news".

"Yeah", Koppel replied to Hannity's question.

Hannity didn't indicate that his words were edited to make them appear misleading; he just seemed upset that so much got left on the cutting-room floor.

Hannity then said, "You are selling the American people short".
