Fox News Star & Syndicated Radio Host Sean Hannity Accused of Sexual Harassment by Attorney/Blogger Debbie Schlussel
SORRY, NOT SURE IF I BUY THIS ONE, NOW IT LOOKS LIKE A WITCH HUNT TO DESTROY FOX NEWS …
In the latest attack again Conservatives and FOX News, stars, Sean Hannity is being accused of sexual harassment by attorney/blogger Debbie Schlussel. According to Schlussel Hannity repeatedly invited her back to his hotel room during an event they were at together in Detroit. Honestly, it is hard to believe that some one with an impeccable record like Hannity could have done this. Or is this the leanght that some are willing to go to destroy another’s career. So Schlussel thinks that using the term “double team” was a weird phrase to use. REALLY? Interesting, I use the term all the time and so do many others. Note to Ms. Schlussel, it is a term used in sports all the time. Remend me to never have a conversation with this individual or ever be in her presence.
Sorry, the timing seems to be to coincidental after the outing of Bill O’Reilly and its obvious that Fox hater and those with a previous bone to pick and agenda smell blood in the water. Hannity has no record of anything like this. Sorry, this is a case of an individual looking to pile on and make something out of nothing.
Former Fox News contributor Debbie Schlussel claims that host Sean Hannity sexually harassed her.
Schlussel said on the Pat Campbell Podcast Friday that Hannity repeatedly invited her back to his hotel room during an event they were at together in Detroit. Schlussel did not say on the podcast when the event took place.
“He had some event at a bookstore where he signed his book for people standing in line. He asked me to come meet him at this book signing,” Schlussel said on the podcast.
“So I met him there and it was very awkward. He had me stand up there with him while he signed books and I felt very weird. These people don’t know me and they didn’t come for me to sign their books. So then I left to get ready for the show and he said, ‘Why don’t you come back with me to my hotel?’ and I said no, I have to get ready for the show.”
“Sean came up to me and said we’re gonna double-team, which was a weird phrase to use, this Palestinian guy that I was up against on the show,” Schlussel said.
“And then every time I tried to open my mouth and say something, they yelled at me and said, ‘obey your host, you can’t say anything or else we’re gonna shut off your microphone.’”
After the show, Schlussel claims Hannity invited her back to his hotel room again. She says she declined once again.
Sean Hannity’s adamantly denied the the sexual harassment allegation“LET ME BE CLEAR”:
“LET ME BE CLEAR – THE COMMENTS ABOUT ME ON A RADIO SHOW THIS WEEK by this individual are 100% false and a complete fabrication.
This individual is a serial harasser who has been lying about me for well over a decade. The individual has a history of making provably false statements against me in an effort to slander, smear and besmirch my reputation.
The individual has not just slandered me over the years but many people who this individual disagrees with.
This individual desperately seeks attention by any means necessary, including making unfounded personal attacks and using indefensible and outrageous political rhetoric.
My patience with this individual is over. I have retained a team of some of the finest and toughest lawyers in the country who are now in the process of laying out the legal course of action we will be taking against this individual.
In this fiercely divided & vindictive political climate, I will no longer allow slander and lies about me to go unchallenged, as I see a coordinated effort afoot to now silence those with conservative views. I will fight every single lie about me by all legal means available to me as an American.”
I GUESS THIS WAS ONE WAY OF ENDING O’REILLY’S REIGN AS THE #1 CABLE TV NEWS SHOW …
For over 20 years at Fox News and 15 years as the #1 cable news show in America, Bill O’Reilly is out at Fox following a myriad of sexual harassment allegations against him. According to past NY Time reports, 21st Century Fox had repeatedly stood by him even as he and the company reached settlements with five women who had complained about sexual harassment or other inappropriate behavior by him. The parent company fears there may be more. It is both hard and sad to believe the story of the rise and meteoric fall of Bill O’Reilly. How does one go from #1 and #1 by a mile and forever to out immediately? The allegations are there of sexual harassment and the stories are their of the LEFT’s agenda to destroy anyone on the right. My belief is like many stories like this, the truth lies some where in-between. I do not condone sexual harassment in any shape or form, but the LEFT needs to stop their selective approach to who they attack and try to destroy. Can we say Bill Clinton? Mum was the word from the liberal media and the LEFT when it came to the not sexual harassment claims, but sexual assault and even rape.
Bill O’Reilly’s reign as the top-rated host in cable news came to an abrupt and embarrassing end on Wednesday as Fox News forced him out after the disclosure of a series of sexual harassment allegations against him and an internal investigation that turned up even more.
Mr. O’Reilly and his employers came under intense pressure after an article by The New York Times on April 1 revealed how Fox News and its parent company, 21st Century Fox, had repeatedly stood by him even as he and the company reached settlements with five women who had complained about sexual harassment or other inappropriate behavior by him. The agreements totaled about $13 million.
Since then, more than 50 advertisers had abandoned his show, and women’s rights groups had called for him to be fired. Inside the company, women expressed outrage and questioned whether top executives were serious about maintaining a culture based on “trust and respect,” as they had promised last summer when another sexual harassment scandal led to the ouster of Roger E. Ailes as chairman of Fox News.
Bill O’Reilly … The Spin Stops Here, literally
There is a note to the LEFT, Bill O’Reilly was far from a conservative as you claim. He was more a a centrist. In my opinion the story is a sad one all the way around as I believe their is truth on all sides. O’Reilly has an ego the size of Texas, it would be naive to think he did not say certain things and it appears that Fox News had an environment conducive to this type of behavior. Then again, she network tries to promote attractive individuals. No one knows the full truth. Upon being let go from Fox, O’Reilly issued a statement.
“Over the past 20 years at Fox News, I have been extremely proud to launch and lead one of the most successful news programs in history, which has consistently informed and entertained millions of Americans and significantly contributed to building Fox into the dominant news network in television,” O’Reilly said.
“It is tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded claims. But that is the unfortunate reality many of us in the public eye must live with today. I will always look back on my time at Fox with great pride in the unprecedented success we achieved and with my deepest gratitude to all my dedicated viewers. I wish only the best for Fox News Channel.”
To end, I will say this probably could have been handled much better by all involved.

Mark Levin on Fox & Freinds Weekend Says the Evidence is Overwhelming of Obama Wiretapped Trump (VIDEO)
CONSERVATIVE TALK RADIO HOST, THE GREAT ONE MARK LEVIN, SAYS EVIDENCE OVERWHELMING …
On Fox & Friends Sunday, Conservative radio talk show host provided the step by step evidence that the Obama administration wiretapped Trump and stated that the evidence was overwhelming. A sitting president is investigating a presidential candidate of the other party. Hmm, how Nixonian. One thing is for certain, this needs to be investigated. The sad reality is the MSM will just run cover for Obama, when they should actually be trying to find the truth.
Sunday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” while discussing President Donald Trump’s tweets accusing the former Obama administration of wiretapping Trump Tower before the election, conservative radio talk show host Mark Levin broke down the wiretapping reporting.
Levin said, “Well, a pleasure to be here. The evidence is overwhelming. This is not about President Trump’s tweeting. This is about the Obama administration spying, and the question is not whether it spied. We know they went to the FISA court twice. The question is who they did spy on and the extent of the spying that is the Trump campaign, the Trump transition, Trump surrogates.”
Fox News Chris Wallace Says, “I Feel Like Tonight Donald Trump Became the President of the United States” (VIDEO) (Update: MSM Praises Trump Speech)
FOX NEWS CHRIS WALLACE PRAISES PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP’S SPEECH IN ADDRESS TO CONGRESS …
Following President Donald Trump’s first Address to Congress, Chris Wallace, the host of FOX News Sunday, had nothing but praise as he analyzed the speech. Wallace, who is no Trump cheerleader at Fox said, “it was by far the best speech that Donald Trump ever gave.” He further went on to say that “it was one of the best speeches in that setting that he ever heard any president give.”
Wallace then said, “I want to say this right, but I feel like tonight, Donald Trump became the president of the United States.” You could see the head of Dana Pirino, former GWB press secretary and Fox News host, in the background nodding with approval. What Wallace said was no disrespect to President Trump. Wallace went on to follow up and say, “Yes, of course he got it 35 or 38 or 40 days ago when he was sworn in, but so many Democrats didn’t recognize him. I think tonight whether you agree or disagree with him, he became the president of the United States and everyone is going to have to accept that fact.”
UPDATE I: From The Washington Examiner, Media applaud Trump’s first joint session speech.
Journalists applauded President Trump’s first joint session address on Tuesday, calling it presidential and predicting that it will be popular beyond his core base of supporters.
“This will be, I think, a very well-received speech for Donald Trump,” said liberal MSNBC host Rachel Maddow after the speech. She said part of the reason was “because of expectations” for Trump are lower, since he is not a typical politician.
In his speech, Trump maintained his campaign message to push for American interests on international trade and foreign policy, while calling on unity between Republicans and Democrats.
Chris Matthews said that Trump’s message of “economic nationalism” was likely to resonate. “I think left, right and center, people have a sense of righteous indignation,” he said. “It’s probably the reason [Trump] was elected in [swing states] Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Ohio.”
“This is Trump at his most presidential — his most effective speech yet,” said ABC White House correspondent Jonathan Karl on Twitter.
Los Angeles Times White House Correspondent Mike Memoli said on Twitter that Trump’s speech was “playing out well” for Trump.
