On the March 30th edition of Hannity, Sean Hannity claimed that Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards had uttered a “falsehood” about her organization performing mammograms. Hannity used an out of context interview to imply that Richards had said Planned Parenthood provides breast examinations, when she was clearly saying it provides access to them.
If Hannity, or somebody on his staff (even a trained monkey) would have taken one minute to visit the Planned Parenthood web site, they could have discovered that it does not regularly “provide” breast examinations. If you search the web site for “mammogram,” you’ll discover the organization does not provide breast cancer screenings, but (except for a few centers) provides access to them. Hannity could have made the same dishonest assertion if he’d called fire stations and asked, “Are you putting out any fires in the building today?”
He could then question the need for fire stations. Having easy access to (or specific knowledge of) the truth, but willfully disregarding it, is a lie.
