    Maybe Brier and Smith were not available.

    Because honesty isn’t the point. Getting an audience loyal enough to dance to images of sugar plum fairies and Sean Hannitys as the whole thing spins into a raging volcano... that’s the point. With an average viewing age of what? 72 or 73? At all the cablers now it’s not surprising you want an iron grip while these poor souls are still alive.... not much time to extract $.50 and some denture cream.

    So, Friday night's extended simulcast was a marketing stunt?

    NBC News just confirmed that Hannity was Michael Cohen’s third client.

    And FNC still won't see this as a conflict of interest

    Laura Ingle reported in on FNC air first at the top of the 3pm hour. Shep Smith addressed "the elephant in the room" after her report. Shep said they are contacting his show's producers, and then read a statement from Hannity's publicist.

    ABC still employs George Stephanopoulos after years of "conflict of interest" with the network.

    You wish to explain the journalistic ethics you are citing as what a true journalistic "conflict" is???

    I can't wait!

    ... Yes. That's is the fact. We are surrounded by incompetency and lack of critical thinking.

    Hannity could potentially be part of the story. That’s the difference here. Stephanopoulos was formerly employed by the Clinton White House and gave to the Clinton foundation, and that’s the extent of the relationship.

    Of course this would be no big deal to you. I forgot that you are not politically affiliated and are independent minded (but all your opinions just “coincidentally” happen to jive with Trump).

    The reality is that Hannity owed it to his viewers to disclose he had also employed Cohen. That is all he had to say. By trying to keep his name out of it, brings a lot more suspicion now, and, rightful criticism of Fox News and Hannity's "journalistic" ethics. Clearly such a thing does not exist at Fox News. Stephanapouos never hid his past employment by the WH nor his donation to the Clinton Foundation, which despite what some people want to believe, is highly rated for doing what they say. Any comparison is a false comparison.

    It’s not the crime, it’s the coverup...

    Oh @Weeters you may want to drive this topic back on track. Also, shouldn't this be under the Network News or Cable News threads?

    I think he owed FNC a heads up more than anyone else. Now they're yet again in a position of having to navigate a sea of criticism hoping that this doesn't bring down their last remaining star. I get a sense one of those 'pre-planned vacations' could be announced any day if this story gets worse.

    For FOX to run a simulcast of FNC isn't that big a deal to me. An air strike (in partnership with 2 of our allies) doesn't warrant bringing out the big guns to report it.

    His problem is not disclosing his ties to Cohen originally, begging that they stay under wraps via Cohens lawyers and then finally having them revealed under orders from a judge.

    It’s just a tad bit unethical to do what he did especially the way he did it. The way he misrepresents himself regularly as a journalist should put him on the same plane as other journalists ethics wise.

    Something more has to be to this story... he was awfully scared over some minor non-client advice...
