Fake News: CNN Falsely Claims Sean Hannity Pulled Gun On Juan Williams

‘It’s not news, it’s’ is becoming a parody of itself, and rivalling The Onion for satire. Seriously, it’s getting out of control.


, one of the media writers at CNN who works for media industry defender Brian Stelter, printed a story on Thursday alleging: “Last year, after ending one of his many spirited on-air arguments with liberal contributor , Hannity pulled out a and pointed it directly at Williams.” Byers cited “three sources with knowledge of the incident” to make the claim.

“He even turned on the laser sight, causing a red dot to bob around on Williams’ body,” Byers wrote, adding in parentheses: “Hannity was just showing off, the sources said, but the unforeseen off-camera antic clearly disturbed Williams and others on set.”

Byers added in the next paragraph that the alleged incident was investigated, and it was determined nothing bad happened.

So yeah, is a violent sociopath white guy who threatened innocent unarmed ‘gentle giant’ black guy Juan Williams. Seems legit. Except …

Whoops. .

This is not going to help Jake Tapper’s relationship with his son at all.

“[He] now does an impression where whenever I’m bothering him he says, ‘fake news,’” Tapper said.

Hannity also addressed CNN example of the new standard for ‘journalism’ in the US:

‘Very fake news’ CNN also said Hannity has a brown belt in Karate.

Now, you’d think that after your report got shredded for the mythology it is by both subjects of your report, alleged assailant and alleged victim, that you’d back away. Especially after the laughable karate bit, right?
