Sean Hannity, Juan Williams, a Gun, and Fake News

This is crazy. It's faker than fake news.

From WND:

Read the following sensational “mainstream media” headlines firing up the news world tonight:
CNN: “Sources: Sean Hannity once pulled a gun on Juan Williams”

Slate: “Hannity Brought a Gun to Work at Fox News, Reportedly Pointed It at Colleague Juan Williams on Set”

New York Daily News: “Sean Hannity pointed gun at Fox News colleague Juan Williams on set”

From Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator:

Now comes this story that Hannity once “pulled a gun” on Juan after a debate on whatever.

...Hannity denies it. Juan (whom I have debated on Hannity’s radio show) denies it. And Fox News denies it.

To be accurate, here are the statements from each:

Juan Williams: “This incident is being sensationalized — everything was under total control throughout and I never felt like I was put in harm’s way. It was clear that Sean put my safety and security above all else and we continue to be great friends.”

Sean Hannity: “While discussing the issue of firearms, I showed my good friend Juan Williams my unloaded firearm in a professional and safe manner for educational purposes only. Every precautionary procedure that I have been trained in since the age of 11 was followed. I’ve had a conceal carry permit in five states for all of my adult life.

“Any other interpretation of this is outright false reporting.”

Fox News: “Sean Hannity has been trained in firearm safety since he was 11 years old and has a license to carry a gun in five states, including New York. The situation was thoroughly investigated and it was found that no one was put in any danger.”

This is so ridiculous.

The Leftist media keep sinking lower and lower. They will stop at nothing. It's really awful. They have gone insane.

Sean Hannity deserves an apology from each outlet that reported he "pulled a gun" on Juan Williams. That's completely different from showing him a gun.

Fake news.
