Video: Opening Segment from Hannity's 'Behind the Bias: The History of Liberal Media'

On Friday night, the Fox News Channel debuted a Hannity special, 'Behind the Bias: The History of Liberal Media.' The promo declared: "Double standards? Groundless attacks? Blatant bias? Sean calls out the mainstream media! Don't miss Behind the Bias: The History of Liberal Media."

The Media Research Center made available to Fox News Channel producers video clips from our archive going back more than 20 years and they are scattered throughout the hour - as are soundbites from MRC President Brent Bozell.

The hour began with what Sean Hannity described as "how and why this bias began," illustrated with several classic examples of left-wing journalistic advocacy and/or denigration of conservatives. Watch that segment, about seven minutes in length.

The Hannity show page on has video of all the segments from the April 22 program.
