Piece of Shit Sean Hannity Pulled From W.F. Buckley Award


<snip>Fox News Channel star anchor Sean Hannity will no longer receive the conservative Media Research Center's William F. Buckley Award for Media Excellence at its September 21 gala, sources familiar with the situation tell CNN.

Buckley, the founder of the National Review, who died in 2008, was hailed in his day as "arguably the most important public intellectual in the United States." Giving an award in his name to Hannity -- a pugnacious talk radio host who has shared conspiracy theories on his popular cable news show -- had caused hand wringing among some conservatives.

It also caused distress among Buckley's family -- in particular his only child, best-selling author Christopher Buckley.

A source familiar with the situation tells CNN that Christopher Buckley "expressed great dismay" at the announcement that the award would go to Hannity, who has spent a great deal of time insulting conservative intellectuals on Twitter, particularly since he became a strong supporter of Donald Trump.<snip>

1. No, no. You have it all wrong. Hannity couldn't fit it into his schedule or some other BS.

Someone else posted this on DU last night and I think Jake Tapper tweeted a snarky jab at him.

3. Giving that award to Hannity, is like William F Buckley giving an award to the John Birch society

A conspiracy enabler getting an excellence in journalism award is ridiculous.

I bet that murdered political aide's family that has something to say about that,

and thus we get this decision
