But it gets better:Sean Hannity is taking a couple days off amid a growing advertiser boycott after pushing a conspiracy theory involving a slain Democratic National Committee staffer.

The "abrupt vacation" is what O'Reilly took, shortly before his exit from Fox.

Ciao, Sean.

Sean "The Despicable" Hannity prepares his cross, claiming victim status: The Fox News Channel host, who has seen at least seven advertisers jump ship recently, blamed progressive media.

There’s nothing that I did, nothing that I said, except they don’t like my position politically,” he told the Huffington Post.

“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.”


Fox News Channel was forced to retract a fake news story — perpetuated by Hannity — Tuesday suggesting Rich, a former Democratic National Committee staffer, was killed in retribution for providing thousands of internal DNC emails to WikiLeaks.

Rich was fatally shot on July 10, 2016, in Washington, D.C. Police said the 27-year-old was the victim of a botched robbery. His family has pleaded with talk show hosts to stop spreading conspiracy theories about him.

On his show Tuesday night, Hannity said he would drop the story “for now,” but pledged on Twitter later that “not only am I not stopping, I am working harder.”

As of Wednesday night, seven advertisers, including Cars.com, Casper, USAA and Crowne Plaza Hotels, had dropped Hannity.

 
The FNC host said some of the blame goes to Media Matters, which started a campaign called “Know What You’re Sponsoring” that listed Hannity’s advertisers.

“There is an attempt, at this moment in time, to absolutely shut down the Fox News Channel and render it, frankly, a shadow of its former self. I’m like the last, sole remaining person there from the old guard,” he told the Huffington Post, saying that pressuring advertisers can “silence the voice.”

Lie, distort, lie again, claim you're the victim, when you were the victimizer. It's the GOP way.

Been following the beat-down news in Montana (its border is 60 miles from our house) and several sources including Fox News (as WPriest noted) have reported there was no aggressive physicality from the Guardian reporter.  Just a guy doing his job, asking the question many people would have for any ACA trasher.   I'd say Gianforte is getting a break, keeping it a misdemeanor, since a body slam to the ground followed by head punches could inflict serious injury.  As Knicks said,

Amazing seeing folks defend a candidate who would rather commit assault on a reporter as opposed to answering a question about Trumpcare.


I hope Quist wins, mainly because the House needs more banjo players.  Remember Deliverance, where the banjo boy refused to accept money?

Civil suit coming? Also, the sheriff's office "investigating" the incident donated money to the Gianforte's campaign. Silence from the national GOP remains. Apparently winning is more important than defending the First Amendment to the GOPers.

Yankees starting pitching might be in a nice place if they can get Tanaka straightened out.

I wonder how robo-Trump will explain his candidate's assaulting a reporter for the gall of persistance in asking about the GOP "health plan."
https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/may/24/greg-gianforte-bodyslams-reporter-ben-jacobs-montana?CMP=edit_2221

Reporter apparently to the hospital after he was body-slammed and his glasses were broken. Police investigating.


Aggressive behavior BY THE LIBERAL REPORTER created the scene.....

NOT TRUE..as reported by FOX NEWS reporters who witnessed the incident.

Retract your falsehood, kid.

We realize, though, that you believe like Trump---that the "press is the enemy of the people".

Another thing you have backwards.

You are the low hanging fruit which despots look for when building their coalitions.

Muslim leaders clash in fiery debate on Sunrise

TWO prominent Australian Muslim leaders have clashed live on air during a fiery debate about extremism and Islam.
Appearing on Sunrise this morning, Dr Jamal Rifi and Imam Shaikh Mohammad Tawhidi condemned the terror attacks in Manchester which has claimed 22 lives.

Both leaders agreed the devastating act didn’t represent Islam, however this is where any common agreement ended.
Imam Tawhidi said the reality was young people were getting radicalised, even in Australia, “because of the Islamic scriptures that we have.”

“They push the Muslim youth to believe that if you go out there and you kill the infidel that’s how you will gain paradise,” the Imam said.
When Kochie asked if Australia is being infested by radical clerics the Imam replied it wasn’t just clerics, but followers as well.

Using an example of an ISIS poster available for a few dollars in shops across Melbourne, the Imam said not enough was being done to stop extremist behaviour.


#####

Ah yes, ISIS posters for the kiddies/adults...on sale in shops.
Could well 'legitimise' Islamic terrorists in the eyes of the impressionable, eh?

I think Anucha is the lowest point.

And then I think watching the Bulls select in the lottery two years in a row with our picks from the ill-fated Eddy Curry trade is the second lowest point.

How Melo is being handled by Phil is the third lowest point.

The Ewing trade is the fourth lowest point.

Dolan v Oakley is the fifth lowest point.

Other terrible moments this century:
- "Get in the truck"
- The Knicks embarrassing themselves in the Lebron sweepstakes
- Dolan v Oakley
- Tough to capture a singular terrible moment from the Layden era, which was entirely depressing. Probably the Eisley/Shandon debacle
- Amare punching the fire hydrant case in the playoffs
- Jerome James' existence as a Knick
- LB roadside interviews
- the anti-MSG protest which was planned for the day after Phil got hired was pretty ridiculous
- Fisher losing the locker room over his personal life
- Each petulant Charlie Rosen article, even stripped of the Melo comments (covered elsewhere) should be included on any list

What did I forget?

The Knicks are a terrible, terrible franchise.

What are the bright spots this century?

- We won 54 games that one year with all the vets and with Melo being third in the MVP race (even if we blew it in the playoffs)
- Porzingis looks promising
- David Lee was a nice pick I suppose
