Yesterday, FTVLive told you that the Trump campaign sent out releases saying that Fox News host Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh were going to join President Trump at a campaign rally in Cape Girardeau.
After we posted the story, Fox News emailed FTVLIve and asked us to update the story with a tweet from Hannity that was posted after our story.
As a favor to Fox News, we posted Hannity’s tweet in which he said this:
We knew that despite what Hannity said in the tweet, we were sure he would go up on stage. In fact we offered $100 bets to 15 people. We said that if Hannity did not appear on stage they win $100, if he does, we win $100. Two people out of the 15 took us up on the best and it was an easy $200 bucks for us.
We have never met Sean Hannity and yet we absolutely were 100% sure that he would take the stage in Cape Girardeau. His ego is way too big for him to stay away from a screaming right wing crowd.
The question is, if we, who have never met Sean Hannity KNEW he would go on stage at the campaign rally, how the hell did the bosses at Fox News not know?
Not only did Hannity go on stage but he called the Journalists sitting in the back “Fake News.” Some of those Journalists were from Fox News.
Today Fox News released this statement, “FOX News does not condone any talent participating in campaign events. We have an extraordinary team of journalists helming our coverage tonight and we are extremely proud of their work. This was an unfortunate distraction and has been addressed.”
Unless they suspended Hannity for a month or fired him, then this is just a statement to try and save face and the fact that Sean Hannity runs Fox News and can do whatever the hell he wants.
People inside Fox News have contacted FTVLive and said that they are livid and have never been more embarrassed to work for the network. I can’t say that I blame them.
As for Hannity, he released a statement as well, but let’s just say the guy lies and anything he says can not be taken as the truth or be trusted. So, we will not include his statement here. We also believe it to be a total lie.
We updated the story yesterday as a favor to Fox News, even though we knew it was 100% bullshit and we were right. W
We will not used again to put out false information.
Fox News should be ashamed that they are letting Hannity drag down the entire network, just to appease Donald Trump.
I have friends at Fox News and I have never felt more sorry for them.
