Russell Brand’s Battle Against Fox News Doesn’t Stop at Sean Hannity
A recent squabble between the British comedian and Fox News’ Sean Hannity got quite a bit of attention, but Russell Brand’s scathing critique of Fox News did not begin with Hannity, nor is it likely to end with him. With episode titles ranging from “Does Fox News Want Us to Be Racist?” to “Why Does Fox News Love Guns So Much?” the “Trews” host doesn’t beat around the bush when it comes to his utter dislike of the media organization.
Watch some of Brand’s videos on Fox News below, including a hilarious breakdown of Bill O’Reilly’s hypocritical advice to solve poverty and a debate about whether Jesus would “side with Fox” in the Hobby Lobby case.
