Sean Hannity is the top-rated talk show host at Fox News.
Hannity’s monster ratings and support for President Trump mean Hannity is the number one target in conservative media for the Democrat Party mob.
And now Sean Hannity is facing one legal threat that could end his career at Fox News.
A left-wing activist group out in Washington State is suing Fox News for allegedly spreading misinformation about the coronavirus that could lead to viewers’ deaths.
Some liberals hope that if Joe Biden wins the election liberals will take over the Federal Communications Commission and crack down on conservative speech.
Against this looming threat to muzzle those that oppose the left, Sean Hannity is not taking anything for granted.
Hannity and other conservatives were outraged about an April 18 column in the New York Times by left-wing zealot Ginia Bellafante.
Bellafante told the story of a dedicated Fox News watcher named Joe Joyce.
Joyce booked a cruise on March 1 and later passed away after contracting the coronavirus.
Bellafante wrote that Joyce’s family blamed Fox News for misleading Joyce about the severity of the coronavirus and Bellafante even cited comments made by Hannity to bolster her argument.
This fake news smear job fell apart when the comments from Hannity that Bellafante cited came one week after Joyce booked the cruise.
After the error became obvious Hannity brought on attorney Charles Harder – who brought down the left-wing gossip site Gawker – to fire off a letter to the Times demanding a retraction and an apology.
“You falsely state and falsely imply a connection between Mr. Hannity’s on-air comments and Mr.Joyce’s decision to take a cruise,” the letter stated. “But what you fail to mention is that Mr. Hannity’s comments could not possibly have influenced Mr. Joyce’s decision because he embarked on his cruise on March 1 (according to your report), while Mr. Hannity made comments on March 9, which you claim influenced his decision.”
“Moreover, you were fully aware that this was the actual timeline, and in order to mislead your readers and support your false narrative, you withheld the date of Mr. Hannity’s comments from your story,” the letter continued.
“We demand that you promptly remove the foregoing false and defamatory statements from the Stories and any subsequent republications in print or any other medium, and publish a full, fair and conspicuous retraction, correction and apology as to each of the false and defamatory statements identified above, with as prominent placement as the original statements,” Harder argued.
The New York Times proved itself to be staffed and managed by fake news hacks when Senior Vice President & Deputy General Counsel David McCraw shot back with a simple answer of “no.”
“The columns are accurate, do not reasonably imply what you and Mr. Hannity allege they do, and constitute protected opinion,” McCraw raged. “In response to your request for an apology and retraction, our answer is ‘no.’”
Hannity’s letter indicated that if the Times did not take appropriate action within 24 hours that Hannity would have no choice but to file a lawsuit.
