Fox News host Sean Hannity went off on The Washington Post after seeing their initial headline in regards to the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi that went viral before they changed the title.

In their obituaries, The Washington Post had an article titled “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, austere religious scholar at helm of Islamic State, dies at 48.”

The company was met with instant public uproar, leading the company to change their headline to say Baghdadi was an “extremist leader” in place of “austere religious scholar.”

But it was too late, as the company continued to face mounting criticism, including from Hannity, who called the headline “sick” and “repulsive” in an explosive statement.

He then taught WaPo a brief lesson on why their words of choice were inappropriate to the extreme. See Below

“An ‘austere religious scholar’? “Dead at 48′?
No—he was cornered by the greatest toughest best military heroes on earth!!” Hannity tweeted. “How about we killed the evil SOB. This is exactly why America will never trust these mainstream corrupt fake news outlets ever again.”

“Let me educate the Washington Post,” he continued. “Al-Baghdadi was the leader of ISIS… The terror organization that is responsible for killing hundreds of thousands of people. ISIS terrorists take pleasure in beheadings and burning people alive in cages…”

“They use cars and trucks to mow down innocent people. To describe Al-Baghdadi as an “austere religious scholar” is sick and repulsive,” Hannity declared. See Below
