Accuracy in Media

Sean Hannity set Twitter ablaze on Wednesday night when he accused fellow Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly of supporting Hillary Clinton, after Kelly criticized GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump for avoiding “unsafe spaces” and only doing softball interviews with the likes of Hannity and other pro-Trump supporters in the media.

Kelly didn’t respond to the tweet, which has been deleted.

What set Hannity off was this comment that Kelly made on her show, which immediately precedes Hannity’s show:

“Donald Trump, with all due respect to my friend at 10, will go on Hannity, and pretty much only Hannity, and will not venture out to the unsafe spaces these days, which doesn’t exactly expand the tent.”

Trump has done numerous interviews on Fox News with Hannity, Bill O’Reilly and Fox and Friends, but has turned down Kelly’s recent requests to appear on her program, which may be due to the rocky relationship that she and Trump have had. Or it might be due to the fact that she is a hard-nosed interviewer and would be far tougher on Trump than would her Fox News colleagues. Trump last appeared on Kelly’s program in May, before he clinched the nomination.

Kelly said that both Trump and Clinton are in a “presidential protection program,” and that’s why Hillary is doing interviews with Mary J. Blige, Entertainment Tonight and and the Steve Harvey show—which gave Clinton the questions Harvey was going to ask in advance.

With just 33 days left until Election Day, it’s unlikely that Clinton or Trump will sit down for a no-holds-barred interview to answer the questions that are still unanswered, leaving some voters in the lurch on November 8.

    In Sean Hannity’s world, anyone who doesn’t kneel down in front of the spray-tanned narcissist is someone supporting his opponent. Hannity is almost as immature as Drumpf is. Almost.

    I think Sean Hannity finds it completely inconceivable that anybody with brains in their head would find him so . . . down right easy to disagree with. That’s what happens when people become so inarguably and downright disagreeable to their core. Maybe I misspoke. Does Hannity have a core that’s not been preprogrammed by the far kook right?

    Hillary wants an “unaware and compliant” citizenry, those two below, certainly qualify!
