Fox News doesn't condone Hannity speaking at Trump rally

Ahead of President Donald Trump's final election rally, the Fox News host said he wouldn't appear on stage with the President to help excite the Republican base before voters head to the polls Tuesday.

Whilst Trump's campaign had billed Hannity as a "special guest", Fox News said that this wasn't the case yesterday.

"We have an extraordinary team of journalists helming our coverage tonight and we are extremely proud of their work", the statement added. But Fox News addressed the incident on Election Day, calling it "an unfortunate distraction". Now, they should be furious that they ever at one point thought they could trust Sean Hannity, but what he did Monday night really shook them to their core, according to Fox employees who have now spoken to other media outlets about it. This was NOT planned. And his own onstage joke about the "fake news" in attendance was not meant to include his Fox News colleagues, Hannity wanted to clear up. "They do fantastic work day in and day out in a fair and balanced way and It is an honor to work with such great professionals".

Hannity went onstage at the Trump rally after tweeting earlier in the day that he was just there to interview the president. The opinionated host defended the move on Twitter as unplanned.

Hannity was rebuked by Fox in 2010 when it found that the Tea Party had advertised Hannity would be appearing at one of its fundraising rallies, where participants could pay a premium for seats near the set where Hannity was broadcasting his program.

As for Judge Jeanine Pirro, she has known President Donald Trump for several decades and reportedly considered becoming part of the administration.


Critics have claimed that Fox News Channel is less of a news organization than an arm of the Trump campaign, and Monday's rally gave them fresh ammunition.

Initially, Hannity and the network said that Hannity would simply air his show from the rally venue in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, and follow that with an interview with Trump.

Sean Hannity explained that he had not expected to be called upon during the rally.

The newspaper asked a Fox News spokesperson in April of 2018 whether Hannity was considered a journalist.

"If the Democrats think they are going to waste Taxpayer Money investigating us at the House level, then we will likewise be forced to consider investigating them for all of the leaks of Classified Information, and much else, at the Senate level".

It wasn't clear what exactly the woman was treated for, but she was described in news reports as "elderly".
