Sports readers like conservative Hannity


I thought that Mike McFeely was a sports columnist, not a political commentator. I was surprised by his reference to Sean Hannity in his sports column in the Dec. 17 edition of The Forum: “Getting such an admission from a follower of the Purple might be akin to right-wing crackpot Sean Hannity praising Barack Obama.”

Hannity is conservative, knowledgeable, intelligent and opinionated, but never a crackpot. He provides much-needed balance to the liberal media, something The Forum could use a bit more of.

McFeely just lost one of his readers. I would bet I am not the only politically conservative sports reader who was offended by McFeely’s comment.
