Ready to Fight
Photo credit: Fox News Sean Hannity is fighting-mad and he’s ready to take-on his liberal opponents in a big way. Although, given the recent turmoil at Fox News, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone.
With the recent departure of fellow pundit Bill O’Reilly and the sudden resignation of Co-President and longtime friend, Bill Shine, it was unlikely that Hannity could be silent any longer.
Hannity threatened recently, to file lawsuits against former Fox contributor, Debbie Schlussel, who made subtle statements alluding that Hannity had sexually harassed her. While Schlussel came out and said that was not what she intended to convey, the damage was already done. One does have to question why she would say anything at all about the incident if she wasn’t trying to smear his reputation.
But, regardless of her reasons, Hannity is following through on his threats. In a released statement, the Fox News host said he “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 a series of angry tweets over the weekend, Hannity remarked that this situation was way bigger than…

Hannity tweeted specifically that he “has spent a lot of time with an army of attorneys,” discussing various forms of lawsuits such as “libel, defamation, and slander.” He also urged his followers to “stay tuned.” When Twitter users began suggesting names of who Hannity should sue, he alluded to there being a much bigger problem, posting that “IP addresses are traceable.”
Just days before Bill Shine resigned from Fox, Hannity tweeted, as if he knew what was happening, that Shine’s departure would “be the end of Fox News Channel as we know it.”
Hannity, like O’Reilly and Shine, has denied any allegations of wrongdoing at the network, maintaining that this is an orchestrated campaign to destroy the top-rated conservative network.
Nonetheless, his final tweet was an undeniable challenge to those who might be seeking to topple the popular conservative host:
“There is Zero chance they can stop me with lies, attacks, slander defamation, and NOW sabotage. I have a massive army, ALL OVER THIS. SOON!!”
