Ted Koppel, a decorated and semi-retired news broadcaster whose journalistic career has spanned six decades, this week mounted a special report for CBS Sunday Morning, where he's a senior contributor. The topic was "The great divide: Politics in the Age of Trump." In the piece, he lamented the media forces that seek to polarize people for their own gain—and to the country's detriment.

Of course, no talk of this subject is complete without a critique of Fox News, and in particular its most partisan loudmouth, Sean Hannity. In a stunning interview segment, Hannity made the mistake of putting a brash rhetorical question to Koppel: "You think we're bad for America? You think I'm bad for America?"

Koppel's response: "Yeah." Dude, my man is ice-cold. Watch Hannity's face.

Now, if Ted could just convince all the other 77-year-olds out there that Hannity is a hack ideologue, he might wipe out the Fox News audience as we know it.
