Sean Hannity is pissed off about his recent allegation that he sexually harassed Fox News guest Debbie Schlussel. Schlussel claimed in a recent radio interview that Hannity retaliated against her after she declined an invitation to go back to Hannity’s hotel room.
This all comes as Fox News is struggling to keep their reputation clean after having fired Bill O’Reilly and Roger Ailes both who were given substatial amounts of money after being let go. O’Reilly who had been an anchor on the show for twenty plus years was deep in a sexual harassment scandal by several women who accused the anchor of being sexually harassed by him. 21st Century Fox and O’Reilly paid out $13 million to the accusers to keep them quite but it didn’t seem to work. As for Ailes he was outed by Gretchen Carlson who sued the former Chairman at Fox for sexually harassing. It was said that Ailes wanted him and Carlson to have a sexual relationship and he tried to hold it over her head. (cue vomit, who would want to have sex with Roger Ailes?)
Now it seems that the focus is on conservative political commentator Hannity who in a statement said that he will fight the accusation being said about him. He reiterated that the accusations where made by an individual who “”for over a decade has made the most outrageous, unfair, untrue allegations against me.” While he fully intends to fight “every single lie” by “all legal means available,” he suggested the recent allegations were about more than just him.
He then took it further saying that this wasn’t just about him but about silencing “the voice of every outspoken conservative in this country.”
Let’s hope for Hannity’s sake that he is right and that some women out there do not have concerete evidence that he is in indeed a liar like O’Reilly. Perhaps many men like Hannity, O’Reilly, and Ailes and of course our current President, Donald Trump think it’s ok to speak to women the way we have heard that Ailes and O’Reilly have spoken to some women. If that is the case I hope Hannity goes down just like Ailes and O’Reilly, however it’s not like they are struggling as both men were let go with millions of dollars!
