Sean! Stop pinching the Fox logo! Ouch!

After his recent adventures in trying to revive a fact-free conspiracy claim that a murdered DNC staffer was the real source of hacked documents given to Wikileaks, thereby making the Trump-Russia scandal vanish in a puff of illogic, Sean Hannity will be taking a couple of days off to cool his heels. But don’t worry, Fox News viewers — this is absolutely nothing like Bill O’Reilly’s “vacation” where Fox sent him to go live at a nice farm upstate. Hannity will definitely be back after the holiday weekend, says Fox News, which apparently hopes taking the man’s big dumb mouth off the air for a few days will slow or stop a growing advertiser boycott.

On Tuesday, the day after FoxNews.com pulled its May 17 story claiming “new evidence” linked DNC staffer Seth Rich with the leaks, Hannity said on his radio show that he would “retract nothing,” but by Tuesday evening on Fox News, Hannity had decided, out of “respect” for the Rich family, to stop promoting the story “for now.” He then went back to Twitter to hint that he still had oodles of important evidence to share about Rich (and his supposed assassination by Hillary Clinton death squads), but has to sit on it for now because he’s such a goddamn gentleman and because liberal fascists are out to get him kicked off the air, as liberal fascists do. By Wednesday, at least seven advertisers had pulled their ads from the Hannity show, and Kimberly Guilfoyle, co-host of “The Five,” announced she’d be filling in for Hannity Thursday and Friday. It’s unclear whether Hannity would be hosting his radio show, which runs at 6:00 Eastern, for those two days.

After online speculation that Hannity might be getting the same vacation-leading-to-a-firing treatment O’Reilly did, Fox News issued a statement explaining that everything was perfectly normal and that Hannity really was just on vacation, you fools:

Like the rest of the country, Sean Hannity is taking a vacation for Memorial Day weekend and will be back on Tuesday […] Those who suggest otherwise are going to look foolish.

Hanitty himself offered a similar sentiment on the Twitters, laughing at all you morons who think a mere advertiser boycott could bring him down:

We’re perfectly willing to believe Hannity will be back, since so far he hasn’t actually run up any huge legal fees for Fox like Pussgrab O’Reilly did. But it’s worth noting that when O’Reilly went away for “a month,” Fox issued a statement guaranteeing he’d be returning, and O’Reilly said it was just his ordinary vacay, nothing to see here. Gosh, similar language, too:

I often takes some time off around this time of the year. I grab some vacation, because it’s spring and Easter time. Last fall, I booked a trip that should be terrific. Not gonna tell you where it is, but we have a contest [online]… I’ll have a full report when I return.

And nobody ever won that guessing contest, sadface :(

In an interview with Huffington Post Wednesday, Hannity said even though he’s the target of a liberal witch-hunt, he regrets nothing:

“There’s nothing that I did, nothing that I said, except they don’t like my position politically,” he said. “They’ll try to ratchet up the intensity of their rationale. It does not justify an attempt to get me fired. And that’s what this is. This is an attempt to take me out. This is a kill shot.”

He also insisted his decision to temporarily stop pursuing the Rich story on Fox was entirely his own, because nobody pushes around Sean Goddamn Hannity, see? He’s Irish, and you don’t make him mad, see? Sean Hannity is a FREE MAN!

“I did it out of my own heart,” he said. “Nobody tells me what to say on my show. They never have and frankly they never will. I’m not that type of person you can say, ‘Go on air and say this.’ That’s been the beauty of Fox News all these years. They leave me alone.”

We’d like to think that he was then gassed, taken to an island, and informed he would henceforth be called “Number Six.”

Despite Hannity’s protestations, CNN’s Dylan Byers reports Hannity may have had just a skosh of help in making up his mind all by himself:

[Four] sources at Fox told CNNMoney that Hannity did face internal pressure to back off the Rich story, even if he made the decision to do so on his own. Suzanne Scott, the network’s president of programming, and other executives met with Hannity on Tuesday and encouraged him to stop advancing the theory.

Fox News did not comment, and Hannity did not respond to a request for comment […]

Fox News staffers have told CNNMoney that they are frustrated and embarrassed by Hannity’s peddling of the conspiracy. “It is disappointing because it drags the rest of us down,” one senior Fox News employee said earlier this week.

While the sudden vacation (and the denials it means anything) are very similar to the process of making Bill O’Reilly an unperson, at least with Hannity we’ll know by Tuesday whether Fox decides he’s still a profitable asset. If you’re in the mood to let advertisers know you aren’t a fan of fake news, the list of Hannity advertisers is still up at Media Matters. Heck, if an advertising boycott really does drive him from Fox, at least Hannity can take some satisfaction in having been right for once.

Be seeing you, Mr. Hannity.

    Not many people know this, but this “break” is actually for a little personal maintenance. Hannity’s tonsorial splendor is preserved by coating his head liberally (pun intended) in chickenshit and then sprayed with several coats of industrial strength shellac.

    OT: This Week’s round of “Evil or Stupid?”

    “Listen, I lost my sister to breast cancer,” an emotional Meadows told reporters. “I lost my dad to lung cancer. If anybody is sensitive to preexisting conditions, it’s me. I’m not going to make a political decision today that affects somebody’s sister or father because I wouldn’t do it to myself.”

    Meadows pledged to conduct his own analysis of the CBO’s numbers and to add needed funds to the high-risk pools to ensure that people with preexisting conditions can get covered.

    “In the end, we’ve got to make sure there’s enough funding there to handle preexisting conditions and drive down premiums,” he said. “And if we can’t do those three things, then we will have failed.”

        There can’t be much of a market for Alfa-Romeos among the junkyard alpha dogs.

    The primetime ratings for Fox are in the toilet. Now is the time to write every one Hannity’s advertisers and tell them that despite their protestations to the contrary, their sponsorship of the Hannity program is most certainly an endorsement of the views expressed on his show. They are trying to appeal to an audience that share’s Hannity’s views. Further, does anyone believe a Hannity viewer is going to buy an Alfa Romeo?

    • snark-lurker

      I donut know how that works, advertising to non-buyers, unless…unless they are giving financial support to propaganda..

    This will be the Fox (News) in charge of the henhouse.

  • ken_kukec

    “… he was then gassed, taken to an island, and informed he would henceforth be called ‘Number Six.’”

    Which is a major promotion from his former title, “Number Two.”

    • ConnieHinesDorothyProvine

      Hannity has #2 for brains.

    • Chris

      Extra points for The Prisoner reference.

  • William

    So like one Fox- molester took a dirt nap, another got shit-canned, a third just went to his snowflake safe place and then there is the lawsuits and payoffs for the harassment and workplace douchebaggery, and the month isn’t even over. https://media.tenor.co/images/8f427d1aa3d65fbefc07c4668c6338bb/tenor.gif

  • Randy Riddle

    “We’re perfectly willing to believe Hannity will be back, since so far he hasn’t actually run up any huge legal fees for Fox like Pussgrab O’Reilly did.”

    Not all legal settlements need to be made public.

  • marxalot

    I’d say “hey Hannity, go screw,” but that implies the cooperation of another human person.

    • DrBigHead

      And I don’t think I hate anyone that much.

    I’ve said it before (after Bill, then Jesse Watters)…what every Fox employee looks like when they’re told to take a vacation… https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b0c214e655f82fb1ec19176209bb73fa8fbd6617c6122c79a903c9dac51520e1.png

      There was a very, very early Conan episode, where he had Robert Duvall on, and at the time he had a recurring bit with Abe Vigoda which would basically be Abe shouting “‘I’m not dead!!” as he rode around on something. So he said he had the uncut version of the scene, and he had gotten Duvall and Vigoda to actually shoot new material and they’d cut it in, so the scene now went:

      Sal: Can’t you get me off, Tom? For old time’s sake?
      Tom: Sorry, Sal.
      Sal: No, seriously, couldn’t you?
      Tom: I really can’t.
      Sal: What if we went for Mexican food?
      Tom: Weeellll…. I really do like enchiladas….
      Sal: We could get margaritas!
      Tom: Uh……no, sorry, Sal, no can do.

      I still laugh every time I think about it.

    Little bit of a story; there’s a board game called Dungeon Petz, where players are raising monsters to sell off to dungeon lords for money and points. If a monster isn’t taken care of well enough, you lose it. The game manual specially says that monsters never die; they, “go to the farm”. The very next line instructs you to put out more meat for sale the round after a monster, “goes to the farm”

    Don’t know why I’m suddenly reminded of that. And has anybody seen Bill O’Reilly lately?…

      Wow. Weak and incomplete. They forgot Christopher Stevens. Why are they trying to help the Clinton’s hide. Cucks???

      • mary5920

        They forgot Howdy Doody and Mr. Bluster.

        • CindyinEncinitas

          And Col. Mustard.

    • Bigby

      I’d forgotten all about that rubbish tontine, but all the mysterious deaths, I daresay there’s not much mystery. They’re just desperate to sell newspapers.
      Gloucester fell off the roof mucking about with the aerial, Wens and Bux died in their sleep at the pensioners’ home, and as for Stilton, there’s no nice way to put it…auto-erotic asphyxiation.
      You’re joking!
      No.
      Stilton was always quite keen on that.
      Remember? Always looking for something sturdy to loop his Sam Brown over?
      I do seem to recall an awful lot of loose doorknobs.
      Oh, plus what he named his plane.
      I always thought that had something to do with the engine.
      Well, here’s to you, “Choke and Stroke”.
      To “Choke and Stroke!”
      And here’s to the old Double Deuce…

      • BearDeLaOursistance

        Aw, they don’t know what goes on here, they can’t even read English. All those dirty beaners care about is takin American jobs!

        — Hey relax Hannity. It wasn’t all that long ago that everybody hated the Irish for swarming over here in potato boats and taking all the jobs.

        Yeah, the — wait, what?

      Vince Foster didn’t make #1? WTF’s a guy gotta do to be #1?! I mean, didn’t they kill him on the WH lawn and use a human cannon to launch his dead carcass to that national park? That’s pretty spectacular….

  • OrdinaryJoe

    Didn’t O’Liely go on vacation too?

    • katkelly57

      Yep….as did Ailes, don’t expect a postcard from him though.

    i don’t care. the beer’s on me. just that this guy will not be wasting bandwidth for atleast a couple of days is cause for celebration in and by itself.

  • AnnieGetYerFun

    Wow, can you guys imagine if Fox became a real news network, like the Murdoch boys want? That would be so weird.

    As someone who’s been the target of a “kill shot”, fuck you Seanny. Oh, and when is that live waterboarding scheduled? Pansy ass coward.

    • Cat Cafe for the Investigation

      Yes, I thought the same thing. What a giggling buffoon. Weakling.

    • Miss Dill

      And a really poor choice of words considering the way Mr. Rich was murdered. I say this out of respect for the victim and family, not to be snarky. I can’t imagine doing what people like Hannity do for a living.

  • sadboy

    Dig the Prisoner reference, Dok! Looking forward to the prospect of Hannity on an island where nobody has a name and he can be chased around by a giant floating testicle all day.

    • GHERKINS OF RESTIVENESS!

      chased around by a giant floating testicle

      Roger Ailes lives on!!!1

      • Ferroequinologist Ron

        So THAT’S why it was a sort of pasty white.

  • Mehmeisterjr

    Fox News staffers have told CNNMoney that they are frustrated and embarrassed by Hannity’s peddling of the conspiracy. “It is disappointing because it drags the rest of us down,” one senior Fox News employee said earlier this week.

    He drags you down by one tenth of a centimeter, Murdoch munchers.

    • chicken thief

      Like Jeffrey Dahmer drug down other mass murders like Ted Bundy – “I didn’t eat my victims goddamnit! Don’t compare me to him!!!”

    Liberal Fascism
    1)A Illogical word created by Right-Wingers in an attempt to cover-up Fascism’s Right-wing roots.

    2)Also the title of a illogical book that makes a poor attempt to connect liberalism to Fascism.

    3)A word that would make a person with the most basic knowledge of Politics laugh at you.
    Liberal Fascism is a failed attempt to demonize a ideology that Democracy was founded on.
    http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Liberal%20Fascism

  • whitroth

    Liberal fascism? Is this like where we say Nasty Things about you, and make rude and crude remarks, and suggest you might have done criminal things?

    Sorry, I’m more worried about Real Fascists (who, in spite of the alt-wrong, were *not* socialists, but had to be, because nobody on the right *ever* did anything wrong), who might, like, lock me up or shoot me or my kids or friends….

    Jonah Goldberg fans are so stupid, it’s ridiculous.

    • Gorillionaire

      In my experience, they have been genuinely too stupid to argue with.

  • Ferroequinologist Ron

    Except of course that Hannity would have blabbed EVERYTHING to Number Two, probably without prompting. In fact, they’d likely throw him out of the village because he wouldn’t shut up.

  • chicken thief

    “I’m not that type of person you can say, ‘Go on air and say this.’ ”

    Hannity said, with fingers crossed behind his back.

  • Gregory Brown

    Great Patrick McGoohan “The Prisoner” ref, Dok!

    Maybe Hannity is going to meet up with Trump so he can give a real tongue bath instead of his usual verbal one

  • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

    ““There’s nothing that I did, nothing that I said, except they don’t like my position politically,” he said. “They’ll try to ratchet up the intensity of their rationale. It does not justify an attempt to get me fired. And that’s what this is. This is an attempt to take me out. This is a kill shot.”

    I don’t watch Hannity, but I wonder what Obama, Lynch, Susan Rice, and everybody else Hannity’s ever bitched about feel about this quote.
    (Has hannity ever advocated for someone he disagrees with be fired? I’m betting the nickel I have that he has).

    ETA: And he DID say and do things – i.e. put a grieving family through more grief. Lying fucker.
    Moar ETA: Also, he lied and insinuated with no evidence.

    • Dinz6315

      “Kill shot” seems a poor choice of words if you claim to care about the feelings of Seth Rich’s family. You puerile nitwit.
      Sean, not you, TX Dept.

      • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

        yeah, I was thinking that too.

    • britishvoiceman

      Don’t you just love it when right-wingers claim there’s no evidence of collusion between the Trump team and Russia, but happily repeat any ridiculous BS rumor from Alex Jones, Breitbart, etc.?

  • John Resistant Tovarich Smith

    I think I won the O’Reilly vacation contest. I picked “Oblivion”.

  • Canis the Grey

    With all his advertisers deciding this arsehole is bad for business, just who does Hannity think he is to question the will of the free market?

  • moeman

    Is it me or does shamnitty have a really large head?

    • Parakeetist

      Something he pulled out of his ass.

    • JoeChristmas

      It’s like calling everybody besides Fox, “Fake News”

    • britishvoiceman

      An oxymoron, but let’s not forget that many Fox viewers think Hitler was a socialist.

  • JoeChristmas

    But Fox was cool with calling Obama a America hating Muslim Kenyan for eight years.

  • mailman27

    Loved The Prisoner.

  • tman2

    After he is fired, maybe Hannity will have time to earn a college degree.

    • phoenix00

      Maybe even a waterboarding or two? Or is that against the not-commenting rules?

    • therealcharlesdarwin

      He can spend more time looking for the whitey tape.

    • Mack N. Nietzsche

      Well, he’ll have to finish Kindergarten first.

  • i’mjustaskingthequestion

    I had no respect for this man and the views he peddles. But this…now that lack of respect had developed into a respect singularity, sucking up all the respect around it. There is a physical net loss of respect in the universe because of his existence.

    Aside from the fact that this conspiracy theory involved the death of a real live (now dead) young man. The stupidity of the story. The fact that its totally debunked, all for the purpose of duping the stupid. He knows its bullshit. He’s openly lying to the camera. All the while knowing that what he says persuades people. I’m no expert, but I think that makes him an asshole.

    Sean Hanitty was conceived when Rush Limbaugh jizz slammed into a reptile egg. I’m not making fun of Hanitty. That’s really how it happened.

    Most of my hillbilly cuzin friends on FB plopped loud, all-caps growdies over the Killing of O’Reilly. Every single one of them called a time of death for Fox News with the certainty of a procedural crime drama coroner; they nailed the drama, but can’t develop a likable character beyond an apathetic Quincy. I don’t think Fox has many viewers who would storm out over Hannity so soon after that.

    • Al Swearengen

      Yep, they’re clampin’ their tricornes, cowboy hats, feed caps, and KKK hoods down tight and gettin’ ready for battle because important people are gettin’ hurt!
