Hannity goes after writer who savaged Colmes after his death

Fox News host Sean Hannity lambasted an opinion writer who published a column earlier Friday blasting the late Alan Colmes at Slate, a liberal news outlet.

“Only mean soulless assholes could ever write and print something this viscious, cruel, and heartless. You r so ignorant, wrong, and hateful!” Hannity tweeted.

Colmes was a Fox News personality who came at it from the liberal side. Despite bringing a decidedly different perspective to the right-leaning network, staff writer Issac Chotiner said he did not do a good job advocating for progressive ideas.

“Colmes was the most absurd, useless, and mocked television personality in America for many years, precisely because he was nice. In the context of Fox News, being a nice guy — and a ‘liberal’ nice guy at that — meant being a buffoon, and a patsy. Colmes not only played the part to perfection — he defined it,” Chotiner wrote.

“While Colmes may not have been a genius, he wasn’t a complete moron either; in short, he was smart enough to know he was being used, and to take the money that his services demanded. If this is something less than morally reprehensible, it is still pretty gross,” Chotiner added.

The article also harped on Colmes’ role as the co-host of “Hannity & Colmes,” the precursor to Hannity’s current weeknight show.

“Yes, the two men appeared to have equal time during each segment, and yes, there was often a liberal guest and a conservative one,” Chotiner stated. “But the show, by design, was conservative, and often in racist or homophobic or Islamophobic ways.”
