Hannity to Buchanan: ‘I Prefer the Old Crossfire Days’

Bill O’Reilly has Bernard Goldberg. And increasingly, Sean Hannity is bringing on former MSNBC political analyst Pat Buchanan as a media commentator.

He was back on Fox News last night during coverage of the Mississippi and Alabama primaries in a segment that seemed to be an attempt at a counterpoint to the criticism Rush Limbaugh continues to receive over the Sandra Fluke flap but sold as a discussion of a left wing media takeover. It began with a series of talk radio clips from left-leaning hosts, including Ed Schultz, who Buchanan referred to as “my friend from MSNBC.”

Hannity added about Schultz, “there’s a lot more out on him, which I’m sure people will be able to find, if they’re interested.”

“I prefer the old Crossfire days, Pat,” said Hannity concluding the segment. “I prefer more speech, passionate speech, debate, dialogue.” What Hannity didn’t mention was he used to host a Crossfire-like show, with Alan Colmes for 12 years.
