Sean Hannity Displays Hypocrisy On NSA Surveillance (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Sean Hannity sure has changed his tune.

The rambunctious Fox News host on Monday lashed into the Obama administration over the revelations of widespread Internet and phone surveillance by the National Security Agency, warning that "anarchy and tyranny will follow."

But back in 2006, when a similar NSA spying scandal was unearthed during President George W. Bush's administration, Hannity wasn't so concerned. He came out as a staunch defender of the NSA then, saying it was "staggering to me we are even debating the use of these techniques in this country even at this time."

Media Matters put together a mashup of Hannity's comments, comparing his position then and now.
