Thousands Come out to Watch Hannity Talk Water in Valley Field

Posted:

24 hours before, all that occupied a Westside fallowed field was dirt.

Just one day later, it was a much different story.

"If I was in their position, I would be here too," Fox News Channel Anchor Sean Hannity said.

A sea of fed up farmers and farm workers flooded the field Thursday as Fox News anchor Sean Hannity broadcasted his national show near Lemoore, putting the Central Valley's water crisis on center state.

"Heartbreaking stories of people who for generations have owned farms and they're now waiting in line to get food themselves after they spent decades feeding us. It's the least we can do," Hannity said.

"It's disappointing when you have a food source as abundant as this area is," Westside farmer Dan Errotaberre said.

Errotaberre knows the issue first hand.

"I had to leave out 1,200 acres. I simply couldn't farm. And so the remaining acres have to, I'm hoping carry the farm," he said.

Thousands packed the dusty field to get a glimpse of the national television anchor and hope the attention opens up the eyes of both the President and the rest of the country.

"I'm hoping that for one minute people can put aside any petty partisanship they might have and realize this is about sustaining the entire country," Hannity said.

One more thing to note, Congressman Jim Costa was one of Hannity's guests on Thursday's show.

But when he got on stage he was heckled and booed by many in the crowd, calling him a "sellout".

But Costa maintains he is behind the cause 100% and did what he needed to do to get at least some of the water turned back on.
