Hannity can pull out a real gun, point it at a real live human being and - crickets... Fox has no problem calling out Snoop Dogg though

Part of me wants to use the word ironic, but it's not at all ironic - it's just indicative


It's a bit different publishing a video and broadcasting it mimicking shooting the President and showing a friend your firearm don't you think?

There is a difference but neither is a big deal.

Now, pointing your gun at a friend would be considered, by some, worse than either of those two things.

What is wrong with someone stating that, if that was the case, that they disapprove?

The 'friend' didn't disapprove.
The issue here is not actually the event, it is the ridiculous headline at CNN.
It is clearly an attempt to sensationalise an event to attack a rival network. Then the story doesn't quite match, but hey the headline is great click bait and so many don't even read the story so job done. Narrative pushed.

CNN

Sean Hannity once pulled a gun on Juan Williams


Note how theheadline was also changed by the OP

Hannity Pulled Gun On Liberal Fox News Co-Worker


Fake News narrative.

Hannity didn't pull a gun on Williams.

What the friend thinks doesn't matter. His friend could have known that the gun was empty and felt safe but it is still broke gun safety rules held by others.

It is their problem but it doesn't mean that it didn't happen

..and it's a non story that has been pushed into the spotlight as propaganda.
The sensationalism employed has, fortunately, been debunked.

I thought people are expected to move past the title and actually think about the content of the op. "Debunking" a tongue in cheek title doesn't do anything to the rest of the op.

That's interesting but it doesn't really add anything does it? Except that apparently whatever the martial art Hannity has been studying is, it's not Karate. The CNN article had all same information, including the statments and they were hardly "buried" unless you have the attention span of a toddler and can't manage to read through five relatively short paragraphs. Ironically, the statements from Fox, Hannity and Williams appear in the Breitbart article a paragraph later. Guess the Breitbart hack "buried" them too — and further at that?

What is missing from the statements though?

There's no actual denial that the specifics of the incident are wrong, chiefly that Hannity took out his firearm and for whatever reason, pointed it at Williams.

Also, the Breitbart writer might want to figure out what quotes are for. He's got argument in quotes despite the fact that the word argument appears no where in the CNN article.

The real kicker is the embedded tweet from Hannity which contains a link to the Breitbart article:


@CNN I have YEARS OF TAPE talking about gun safety. Years. www.breitbart.com...
10:53 PM - 16 Mar 2017


That's kinda the point isn't it? Hannity does all this blabbering about gun safety and he's in a news room acting like a jackass in front of his co-workers, ignoring the very first rule of gun safety.

Showing a friend? Pointing an actual gun while the laser site is on your torso...

Then - art

Yes. Huge difference. The gun can actually kill someone. Art can make you think

Yes it was designed to make you think - about killing the President.

I wonder how long it will be before we have a "Minister of Information" deciding what "news" is worthy of being disseminated on Only state approved media.


I would have said not long except for one thing: there's been enough of a voice coming from the right (still growing) that's been willing to confront all this nonsense out loud and very publicly. I think if push comes to shove (and that part seems likely) it will turn into America against the One Man Orange Clown Car and his Keystone Cops entourage

Of course, I've been wrong before. Recently :-)

But I've seen enough to give me hope

Indeed :-)

Literally - or figuratively? How many of the Nekked Emperor's fanboys understand this? Trump himself doesn't even seem to understand:


It’s not exactly news that President Trump would prefer a more circumscribed news media, which he has described as “the enemy of the American people.” And despite his previous success as an entertainer, he apparently doesn’t think much of artists’ freedom of expression, either. Early on March 15, as is his wont, Trump tweeted grumpily, “Can you imagine what the outcry would be if @SnoopDogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time!”


Of course Snoop Dogg has the right to depict Trump’s assassination

What would you recommend UK? :-)

Speaking of ART, I hope you are right!

But as I adjust to this surrealistic American drama; it reminds me of how much I enjoy watching the insane people raving on the street corners. Odd comparison but that's the way I roll.

The story comes from CNN. Why are you giving it any credit?

I'm right there with you - I live for surreal. Gawd! This has been nothing but a front row seat to the best show in town. Minus the actual harm done to actual human beings. Which is why it took me a little bit to get my sea legs with all this - and there's no time for resting yet

I hope I'm right too. If nothing else the blood is flowing again in this tired, complacent constituency

I wouldn't recommend anything.
Snoop Dogger or whether his name is can say what he wants, I just find it particularly pathetic and far more of an issue than Hannity showing his firearm to a friend.
I think this story is already consigned to yet another example of CNN fake news, so it hardly matters now.

Curious - why is it more of an issue? Serious question

I know you understand what fake news is UK - so, hilarious statement. I imagine you getting a cookie every time you say something like this. Or a pellet - like a chicken that pecks at the right door

Ok...I had sex with my wife. CNN reports "Man rapes Wife". Wife says "No he didn't...we had sex".

So who is the lying piece of crap that should be prosecuted?
1. The man
2. CNN
3. The woman

Nobody.

Nobody is being prosecuted here either.

That being said you're example is a bit off. Maybe a better example is CNN reporting you raping your neighbor (same sex) and it turns out you are just fond of each other and CNN was wrong. You are still going to get people who see that as wrong (morally) and they have every right to feel that way.
