Fox News and Sean Hannity are under fire.
Liberals seized on the coronavirus pandemic to try and take down Fox News and muzzle Hannity.
And now Sean Hannity threatened this lawsuit to stop Fox News from canceling him.
During a recent broadcast Hannity attacked left-wing media personality Kara Swisher for a column she wrote blaming Hannity and other Fox News anchors for feeding loyal viewers like Swisher’s mother a steady diet of supposed “misinformation” about the coronavirus that Swisher argued would get them killed.
“But she was not concerned — and it was clear why. Her primary source of news is Fox. In those days she was telling me that the Covid-19 threat was overblown by the mainstream news media (note, her daughter is in the media). She told me that it wasn’t going to be that big a deal. She told me that it was just like the flu,” Swisher wrote.
Hannity fired back by threatening to sue the New York Times and other fake news outlets that tried to bully Fox News into taking hosts like Hannity off the air because of their coronavirus coverage.
“You have got one far-left media mob maniac over at The New York Times using the virus to attack her least favorite network, oh, and yours truly. Accusing Fox News of putting her mother and the elderly people at risk. Now, if she actually watched our coverage and cared about truth, actually she should put a correction in her newspaper. We would know that we’ve reported without fear from the very beginning — we have our own little timeline on Hannity.com,” Hannity declared.
“In order to help the media mob out, we put it all together for them, so they can’t plead ignorance when I think about suing them,” Hannity continued.
There are efforts on the left to try and sue Fox News over their coronavirus coverage.
The Washington League for Increased Transparency and Ethics filed a lawsuit in federal court seeking an injunction to block Fox News from “interfering with reasonable and necessary measures to contain the virus by publishing further false and deceptive content.”
Even though it is an obscure group out in Washington state, ideas on the left do not stay fringe for long.
Homosexual marriage and gender neutral bathrooms were ideas far outside the mainstream that quickly became accepted thought on the left.
Liberal groups now agitating for the government to bar Fox News and its popular hosts like Hannity from covering events and stories in ways that challenge the fake news media narrative will soon become commonplace among Democrat Party elected officials.
The next time the Democrats run government many conservatives believe the left will use the Federal Communications Commission to shut down Fox News and boot Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Mark Levin and Laura Ingraham off the air.
That is why Hannity is firing back with both barrels threatening to sue his liberal critics.
Hannity knows if he doesn’t draw the line now the left will only be emboldened to end his career once they control the levers of power.
