If Sean Hannity doesn’t get an apology from a CNN figure who’s been going after him over Democrat presidential nominee HillaryClinton’s health for months, he implied that he planned to sue him and the network for slander.
On his Thursday radio show, Hannity ripped into CNN media analyst Brian Stelter, who’s been accusing the conservative icon of conspiracy theorizing for months over Clinton’s murky health situation, and said he might consider a lawsuit.
“What does — how do I get an apology from CNN?” Hannity said. “Should I — I would love to sue them for slander when they say, ‘Oh, he wants Hillary on her deathbed and dead,’ when I said just the opposite.”
Hannity was referring to comments by Stelter — an unabashed Clinton supporter who’s frequently gone after anybody who doesn’t buy the Democrat nominee’s supposed clean bill of health.
“These are people who bring up rumors and innuendo about Clinton’s health, and have been doing it for years,” Stetler said in a Wednesday appearance on PBS’ “Charlie Rose” (via The Blaze).
“I’m not saying Hannity or (radio host Rush) Limbaugh fit into these necessarily, but they — some of these figures want her to be sick,” he continued. “They want her to be dying. They want her to be on her death bed.”
Apparently, the fact that they just want her to stop lying never occurred to Stetler. Nevertheless, Hannity has given as good as he’s gotten, calling Stetler’s show “Reliable Sources” a “sort of like Media Matters show.”
“(Stelter) allowed this arrogant professor from the Kennedy School of Journalism to talk about Trump being a demagogue, and demagogues like Trump become dictators — that’s the type of coverage that CNN offers in this presidential race,” Hannity said, “as they literally kiss Hillary Clinton’s a** and Obama’s a** everyday.”
We’d like to see a lawsuit, although I don’t think you’re going to get much out of CNN (at this point, Sean’s suit may be what finally discloses that CNN’s total remaining “assets” amount to 600 portraits of Ted Turner, signed and framed, and 1.2 million losing Georgia state lottery scratch-off tickets.)
