Sean Hannity calls Obama "N" word on radio show, ratings triple

By Darnell Washington, Newsophile Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- Days after conservative radio show host Sean Hannity referred to Barack Obama as "that niggardly Democrat," ratings for his three-hour broadcast almost immediately tripled, reported a media ratings service.

However, when forced by the FCC to define the term as meaning "stingy or miserly" and that he meant that Obama was being 'niggardly' with the truth on certain issues, ratings immediately plummeted to some of the lowest levels in the show's history.

Fans immediately lambasted Hannity online for 'getting us all riled up for no good reason.'

Neither Hannity nor ABC Radio Networks were willing to comment for this story.
