FAKE NEWS: CNN Accuses Hannity of Pointing a Pistol at Juan Williams

CNN Accuses Hannity of Pointing a Pistol at Juan Williams

CNN, the network that’s redefining “fake news,” is up to its old tricks again. This time, the network published a story claiming Fox News host Sean Hannity once pulled a gun on Fox News contributor Juan Williams after one of their segments.

The piece claimed three witnesses saw the Fox News host point a gun at Williams in October.

The story begins by trashing Hannity and then claimed that he pulled out a gun and “pointed it directly at Williams.”

“He even turned on the laser sight, causing a red dot to bob around on Williams’ body,” the story continued.

The piece said witnesses claimed Hannity was “showing off,” but the incident “clearly disturbed Williams and others on set.”

The witnesses were not identified and the incident was not caught on film.

It should be noted that Hannity is trained with firearms and licensed to carry a gun in New York state.

Had Hannity actually threatened Williams with the gun, it could be considered “menacing,” which is a felony under New York law.

Fox News said in a statement to CNN that the incident was reported to management at Fox and was “thoroughly investigated and it was found that no one was put in any danger.”

Williams even defended Hannity, saying the situation was being blown out of proportion.

“This incident is being sensationalized — everything was under total control throughout and I never felt like I was put in harm’s way,” Williams posted to Twitter.

“It was clear that Sean put my safety and security above all else and we continue to be great friends,” he said.

Hannity just called it like he saw it — another opportunity for CNN to run with fake news.

The article looks to be more of a hit piece on Hannity with its author, Dylan Byers, constantly attacking the news host at every opportunity.

It certainly looks hate-driven when Hannity and Williams both claim the incident is being exaggerated.

It simply doesn’t get much more worse than this.

It’s amazing that a news organization failing in the ratings because of its reputation for publishing fake news would allow pieces like this to run. It makes no sense until you see CNN for what it is — nothing but a mouthpiece for the Democrat Party.
