Sean Hannity has a surprising reaction to MSNBC host’s blog controversy

Fox News host Sean Hannity had a surprising reaction to the controversy around MSNBC host Joy Reid and her past blog posts – he says she deserves a second chance.

Here’s Hannity’s statement

The talk radio and cable news opinion host posted a statement about Reid on his website Friday after recent revelations from her controversial blog website surfaced.

“Over the last few days the conversation surrounding the comments made by TV personalities has dominated the news cycle,” Hannity said in the statement. “We have covered them as well, going over previous tweets, statements and on air opinions. One of these individuals, MSNBC’s Joy Reid, has now apologized for her previous blogs and commentary.”

Reid had first apologized when the posts were uncovered, then blamed a hacker, but recently apologized again without mentioning the dubious hacker when more posts were published.

“It’s good to see Joy (who is no fan of mine) starting to take responsibility for her past remarks,” he continued. “My suggestion is that she follows up with the groups and people who she offended, and learn from all of this. Her apology should be accepted, and she should be given a chance to make it right, and not fired.”

“We have all fallen short”

“Someone needs to take the lead in cable news and stop the ‘crush, fire them, and destroy hosts you may disagree with’ environment,” Hannity added. “I guess as the number one rated host in cable, I’ll start.”

“I am grateful for this microphone and the platform given to me everyday by my audience,” he said. “I am a believer in the freedom of speech for all Americans. I am also a believer in second chances.”

“And as someone who believes in forgiveness,” he concluded, “I have to say, we have all fallen short.”

Crush, fire and destroy

Hannity was referring to the campaign mounted by left-wing organizations to drive his advertisers away over various stories they painted as controversial. One such controversy exploded when Hannity pressed on with a false story about the death of DNC staffer Seth Rich – Fox News later retracted the story and the family has since sued the news network.

Here’s the CNN news video about the story:

Why the Mueller Investigation Is Constitutional

Likewise, the denunciations of Mueller by Rudy Giuliani, Devin Nunes, and Sean Hannity can generally be ignored, even when they deliver them in lower-case letters. But when a noted scholar of constitutional law raises similar, though far more rational, arguments, attention must be paid.

Mike Rowe gets tough with sanctimonious Fox News-hating ‘fan’ after appearance on Tucker irks him

A fan named “John Ray” slammed Mike Rowe for making an appearance on Fox News, declaring that his “cozying up to the right wing” was doing nothing but “pissing off people who would otherwise love you.”

“I totally get that you think they are ‘furthering your cause’, but they’re not,” John Ray wrote in what Rowe called a “love note” after he spoke on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” last week.

“All you are doing is pissing off people who would otherwise love you. I’ve been with you from the beginning, but this ‘cozying up to the right wing’ stuff is getting increasingly hard to take. And that includes the Koch boys,” Ray wrote.  “Please, go back to being ‘just Mike’, so *everyone* can support you.”

Rowe shared the criticism on Facebook but minced no words in knocking Ray off his soapbox as he explained that he  never claimed to be impartial, only “partial to people who are willing to work hard and master a skill that’s in demand.”

Rowe wrote:

Look, I get that you don’t like Fox, or Tucker, or Hannity, or Charles Koch. I’ve visited your page, and I can understand why you can only take so much of my “cozying up to the right.” What I don’t understand, is your sanctimony. Where were your words of encouragement when I appeared on MSNBC, Meet the Press, NPR, GMA, The Today Show, or Real Time with Bill Maher? Where were your positive comments when I had a weekly show on CNN for the better part of two years? When I appear on liberal platforms, as I often do, why do you never thank me for “cozying up to the Left?”

I welcome your criticism John, sincerely, as well as your advice, but please, spare me the whole, “I’ve been with you from the beginning” routine. If your contempt for Tucker exceeds your fondness for me, then you’re no friend of mine; you’re simply an enemy of Tucker’s. And if you can’t see the difference, then your liberal arrogance is no different from the conservative hubris of my many right wing pals who came here to tell me – even though they “loved” me – that they might have to unlike my page because I popped up on a channel they despise. Like yours, their threats are those of a kidnapper, trying to ransom an item of no value.

 

Ray’s “assumptions are rooted in a fundamental misperception,” Rowe noted, explaining that he is the same person and has not changed.

The “Dirty Jobs” star also called out the so-called fan for dissing his appearance on Fox News Channel, noting how much exposure the segment got for Rowe’s foundation.

“Last night’s appearance on Tucker Carlson flooded my website with scholarship applications. On this page alone, the clip has been shared over 16,000 times, and viewed by over 2 million people in just 14 hours. How does this fail to ‘further my cause?’ Moreover, what is the actual downside? The loss of a few thousand fair weather fans? Give me a break,” Rowe said. “I’ve raised over $5 million dollars for scholarships by discussing my foundation in this fashion, with a variety of people of all political persuasions.”

Rowe’s new show “Somebody’s Gotta Do It” launched into a new season Saturday on TBN.

Leftist bashes Mike Rowe for Fox News appearance. He exposes man’s absurdity with perfect response.

A fan of Mike Rowe’s lashed out at him on Friday after Rowe appeared on Fox News Thursday evening. During that appearance, which came on Tucker Carlson’s show, Rowe perfectly diagnosed the problems he sees in America today.

But his being on Fox News was just too much for one fan.

What did the fan say?

According to a fan named “John Ray,” Rowe’s appearance on Fox News and his “cozying up to the right wing” is doing nothing but “pissing off people who would otherwise love you.”

“I totally get that you think they are ‘furthering your cause’, but they’re not,” John Ray wrote. “All you are doing is pissing off people who would otherwise love you. I’ve been with you from the beginning, but this ‘cozying up to the right wing’ stuff is getting increasingly hard to take. And that includes the Koch boys.”

“Please, go back to being ‘just Mike’, so *everyone* can support you,” the fan added.

How did Rowe respond?

Rowe began by pushing back at John Ray’s criticism that he is not being impartial by appearing on Fox. Rowe said he never claimed to be impartial, only “partial to people who are willing to work hard and master a skill that’s in demand.”

Rowe explained:

Look, I get that you don’t like Fox, or Tucker, or Hannity, or Charles Koch. I’ve visited your page, and I can understand why you can only take so much of my “cozying up to the right.” What I don’t understand, is your sanctimony. Where were your words of encouragement when I appeared on MSNBC, Meet the Press, NPR, GMA, The Today Show, or Real Time with Bill Maher? Where were your positive comments when I had a weekly show on CNN for the better part of two years? When I appear on liberal platforms, as I often do, why do you never thank me for “cozying up to the Left?”

I welcome your criticism John, sincerely, as well as your advice, but please, spare me the whole, “I’ve been with you from the beginning” routine. If your contempt for Tucker exceeds your fondness for me, then you’re no friend of mine; you’re simply an enemy of Tucker’s.

Like yours, their threats are those of a kidnapper, trying to ransom an item of no value.

In the end, Rowe explained John Ray’s “assumptions are rooted in a fundamental misperception.” Rowe explained he’s the same person today as he was a decade ago on “Dirty Jobs.”

As for his appearance on Fox News? Rowe said it brought a tremendous amount of attention to his foundation.

“Last night’s appearance on Tucker Carlson flooded my website with scholarship applications. On this page alone, the clip has been shared over 16,000 times, and viewed by over 2 million people in just 14 hours. How does this fail to ‘further my cause?’ Moreover, what is the actual downside? The loss of a few thousand fair weather fans? Give me a break,” Rowe said. “I’ve raised over $5 million dollars for scholarships by discussing my foundation in this fashion, with a variety of people of all political persuasions.”
