This would be funny if it weren’t so ironically hypocritical. There was reporter Jeremy Peters, of the New York Times—appearing on MSNBC—piously condemning “Sean Hannity’s incredibly inappropriate role as an adviser to Donald Trump who is essentially giving him tens of millions of dollars of free advertising.”
