Now This Is Newshounds At It's Best. I still love it when they tree douche-bags like this.
On your site you write:
"Earlier in the week, Sean Hannity denied, albeit in contradictory terms, ever having a relationship with neo Nazi/white supremacist Hal Turner. As I posted the night Hannity was confronted about Turner, the evidence conflicts with Hanniy’s claims. Now Turner has confirmed their friendship and their sympatico views in a blog post called, “About Sean Hannity and Me. . . . . Yes, we were friends and yes, Sean agreed with some of my views.”
Your source is the person you call a "neo-Nazi/white supremacist Hal Turner. Is this your journalistic standard to repeat the blog postings of people like this? Is your desire to smear Sean Hannity so great that you will take the word of such a person?
In the posting Newshounds quotes from their new friend and journalistic source Hal Turner when he writes the following:
"In 1993, My wife got pregnant and around a month later, Sean reported that he and his wife were expecting their first child. We got to talking about things expectant dads talk about and the relationship grew."
THERE IS A HUGE PROBLEM .... in 1993 Sean Hannity was NOT in NY, he was broadcasting in Atlanta until late 1996 when he was hired by Fox news.
There is ANOTHER HUGE PROBLEM ...Sean's wife was not pregnant, and did NOT get pregnant till 5 years later in 1998, his first child was born in Nov. 1998, So it would have been impossible for Hal Turner and Sean Hannity to be talking about the "things expectant dads talk about in 1993", and for the relationship to grow. Turner also claims that about this time Sean provided Turner with his private phone number at the Fox News Channel. This is also false, since the Fox News Channel did not exist until the fall of 1996, over 3 years later.
When Turner writes:
"My wife gave birth to our son in June 1994, Seans wife gave birth to their child about a month later".
You now know it is a TOTAL and COMPLETE lie, does Newshounds plan to fix the inaccurate statements of their new "STAR REPORTER"??
You further quote your "New Reporter"
"Over the course of the next three or four years, Sean and I spoke regularly off the air about our kids, politics and news of the day. My on-air calls to his show remained regular and welcome."
Clearly this would be impossible since Sean did not have children. As program Director for WABC I can confirm that Hal did call into shows many years ago, starting with The Bob Grant show. I can also tell you that it was Sean Hannity himself who stopped allowing his calls through, almost a decade ago, because Sean did NOT like the tone and message of the calls. He has done this on many occasions and I applaud him for it. Turner claims that I ordered Sean to distance himself from Turner sometime in 2000. This is simply not true. I never ordered Sean to distance himself from Turner, because Sean did so on his own many years earlier.
Clearly Sean's instincts to ban him were right over a decade ago based on your own reporting of what this person presently stands for. Sean should be applauded for standing on HIS PRINCIPLES. While the Sean Hannity Show prides itself on allowing all points of views to be heard, I have watched Sean ban extremists views many times. The question is where are your standards? Why would Newshounds source and repeat the writings of a person you yourself describe as "neo-Nazi/white supremacist"? Is your desire to hurt Sean Hannity so great that you are willing to sink this low?
I have a word document going back years where your site (and those who make comments) have regularly and routinely called Mr. Hannity every name in the book. Are you really proud of this? And by the way, Who is funding your site?
