Blue Checkmark Mafia Goes Nuts Over Claim That Debbie Schlussel Accused Sean Hannity of Sexual Harassment; Debbie Schlussel Later Clarifies She's Not Accusing Him Of That

The John Ekdahl rule: From 7am to 12pm, the deranged leftist media goes crazy every day with some new #FakeNews. Then from 5pm to 8pm, they begrudgingly walk back their claims when people aren't online.

Debbie Schlussel claimed that Sean Hannity invited her to his hotel room and she declined and then she was never on his show again.

She later clarified she'd never accuse him of sexual harassment based on such facts. Even assuming they are facts, which I don't. More on that later.

Now, in an interview with LawNewz.com on Monday morning, Schlussel is denying that she was ever sexually harassed by Sean Hannity. While Schlussel stands by her description of the incident, Schlussel told us that she doesn’t believe what happened between the two amounted to sexual harassment by any legal definition.

"I would never accuse him of that. Sexual harassment has a special meaning under the law, and I would never accuse him of that," Schlussel, an attorney herself, said. Schlussel said the interaction happened in the early 2000’s when Hannity was in Detroit taping a show.

"He tried to get me to go back to the hotel after the show after he and his executive producer Bill Shine treated me horribly," she said on the radio program. Schlussel later clarified that it wasn’t his hotel room, but rather his hotel. She told LawNewz.com that she did go on the show following the incident, but after that was "banned from Fox News."

Now, on that "assuming the facts are true" caveat:

Following the radio interview on Friday, Hannity issued a strongly worded statement denying Schlussel’s claims saying he plans to take legal action against Schlussel for possible libel.

“LET ME BE CLEAR THE COMMENTS ABOUT ME ON A RADIO SHOW THIS WEEK by this individual ARE 100% false and a complete fabrication,” Hannity said in a statement obtained by LawNewz.com. “This individual is a serial harasser who has been lying about me for well over a decade. The individual has a history of making provably false statements against me in an effort to slander, smear and besmirch my reputation. The individual has not just slandered me over the years but many people who this individual disagrees with.”

Brit Hume had a disagreement about this with ABC News' political director Matt Dowd, who looks like a thumb and tweets anti-conservative bullshit all day while claiming to be politically neutral.


Matthew Dowd is right -- one should never proposition someone in the course of one's job duties.

Speaking of divorces and hot new relationships, Megyn Kelly will debut on NBC in June.

Sort of.

"She will start in May, and her Sunday show will premiere in June," a network insider told us. Kelly had been expected to start in July after her Fox contract expired, but she was just released from her Fox deal two weeks ago.

She will join Kate Snow as part of NBC News’ Sunday night programming....

But the former Fox News star's upcoming weekday morning program remains in shambles. We're told NBC is still scrambling to find a staff and executive producer for the weekday morning show, which will debut in the fall.

"It’s a very real problem. There’s no staff in place. They have no idea what they’re going to do with Megyn. Ideas range from talk show to studio audience to news show. It's a problem," another source said. Kelly's rep didn't comment.

Liberals don't even want to work with someone who has the slightest whiff of not being fully liberal. Megyn Kelly always struck me as a liberal Republican (at best), but that is a bridge too far for today's militant progressives.

Hell, the Murdoch Sons may be about to take Fox fully liberal in an effort to feel respectable socializing with their fellow monied liberals again.
