    Popular Fox News host Sean Hannity is reportedly in the doghouse with executives at the conservative-leaning cable network for charging admission to attend a scheduled taping of his show from a Tea Party rally at the University of Cincinnati yesterday — with the proceeds going to the rally's organizers. Fox honchos were reportedly so angry when they learned of the arrangement that they pulled the plug on the event and ordered Hannity to return to the network's headquarters to tape the show at his studio there. (Nor was that taping without controversy, as one of Hannity's guests, Col. Oliver North, who was convicted on three felony charges for his role in the 1980s Iran-Contra scandal, described President Obama's governing philosophy as "anti-American." )

    But according to Murdock, they are not shills for the tea baggers. He had no idea.

    Isn't he getting enough from those concerts for the children of soldiers?

    Of course, Republicans admire someone who can get as much as possible, no matter how they do it.

    Hannity should be ashamed of himself for spending all that money that was supposed to go to the family's of fallen hero's.

    He is a piece of shit. Let freedom ring my ass.

    Let Freedom ring to Hannity must mean the sound of MONEY 'Kachinging' in the Hannity 'pot of retirement'. What a sleezy maneuver,people like Hannity sure stoop to new lows for their agendas. They all eventually expose what type of person they really are.

    The old "I'll support you all" (thinks to themselves) as long as you make me rich.

    Coming to think of it, many politicians seem to have the same philosophy.

    BTW, I am for the people challenging their government, nothing wrong, in my opinion, with the tea party movement, many times the opponents just like spinning the movement names into something evil, good thing they didn't do that prior to the revolutionary war, but after all is said and done, maybe we would have been better off, we ended up being ruled by a 'KING' anyway. 'Kings' do what they want regardless of the peons opinion, right?

    Hannity is part of the problem. Any self-respecting member of the Tea Party movement should distance themselves as far from Hannity as possible.
