Hannity accused Fox News colleague Megyn Kelly of backing Hillary Clinton on Wednesday, Oct. 5, 2016. The spat began Wednesday night on Kelly’s program, when the anchor criticized both GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump and the Democratic candidate, Clinton, of avoiding tough media interviews. Kelly said Trump “will go on Hannity and pretty much only Hannity.” Hannity responded on Twitter that Kelly “clearly” supports Clinton. (AP Photo/Rick Scuteri, File)

Fox News pushed back against rumors that Sean Hannity will be taken off the air


Fox News pushed back against the rumors that its most recognizable anchor, Sean Hannity, will be removed from the airwaves after Memorial Day, reports Business Insider

“Like the rest of the country, Sean Hannity is taking a vacation for Memorial Day weekend and will be back on Tuesday,” read a statement by the company. “Those who suggest otherwise are going to look foolish.”

Hannity has been in the hot seat this past week for clinging to a since-retracted story about the murder of late DNC staffer Seth Rich that was first reported by a local Fox affiliate in Washington. Hannity drew a lot of attention to the story and spent a lot of time tweeting his thoughts on the matter. 

Fox News later retracted the story about Rich, but Hannity stuck to his guns and continued to discuss the matter, prompting some advertisers to pull spots from his show. 

Hannity has made his feelings about the situation known on social media.
