The American Prospect's Robert Kuttner takes it to FOX's Sean Hannity ...

The real good stuff starts at about 2:30 into the clip. Rather than saying "Here are the facts ..." Hannity is reduced to crying "I don't care ..." and "you've got to convince the American people ..." Kuttner really gets Hannity's goat when he says Hannity's position on the economy makes him a "fool," which drives Hannity into an emotional meltdown.

It's taken about 10 years, but we're finally starting to see progressives stand up for themselves in front of people like Hannity. And while it's not always pretty (confrontation rarely is), it's absolutely necessary when you're dealing with media thugs like Hannity.

Kudos to Kuttner for doing the "in the trenches" work that needs to be done.
