Fox News doesn't condone Sean Hannity appearance with Trump

TONIGHT, 9:00pm ET: Hannity One-on-One With President Trump on Election Eve

President Trump Fox News host Sean Hannity and conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh will all appear at a campaign

For a grand finale to his campaign blitz Monday night, President Trump invited his advisers, including press secretary Sarah Sanders and Kellyanne Conway, and Trump's favorite Fox News pundits, Sean Hannity and Judge Jeanine Pirro, on stage in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, to sing his praises.

"Fox News does not condone any talent participating in campaign events", Fox News said in a statement obtained by EW. Hannity himself had tweeted: "To be clear, I will not be on stage campaigning with the president".

When Hannity took the stage, he delighted the crowd by calling the reporters in the back of the room "fake news".

Fox News, with its conservative-leaning talk shows, some of which are unabashedly pro-Trump like Hannity's, has long had a unique relationship with the Trump administration.

In his original Tweet, Hannity had echoed the sentiments of his employer, saying that he would only be broadcasting his normal show from the rally.

In October, Fox said Hannitys show was the most-watched cable-news program for the seventh consecutive month.

It's considered standard for employees of news organizations not to engage in political campaign activities so their outlets do not appear unfair; some journalists go so far as to not vote at all for this reason.

Hannity being at the rally was announced ahead of time, though not the extent of his participation in it. "The press is very much considering it a referendum on me and us as a movement".

He wasn't the only Fox News host to appear on stage at the rally.

Eagles-Saints and Steelers-Jaguars among Week 11 changes — NFL Flex

"It disturbs me to my core", another Fox News staffer agreed.

"To be clear, I will not be on stage campaigning with the President".

The latest incident wasnt the first time Fox News has had to chide Hannity for his closeness to the president.

What was so disgusting about Fox News on Monday night was the way Hannity operated straight out of the propaganda handbook using techniques to mock and vilify opponents that had been used by the publicity machines of fascist leaders since the 1930s in Europe during the early days of electronic mass communications.

One Fox News employee described to CNN Business the scene at the NY headquarters of Fox News at the time, as a number of journalists inside the company's news division watched the episode unfold live.

Hannity said on Tuesday that he was not referring to Fox News journalists when he made the comment. "Anyone doing business with Fox News should worry about the network's inability to enforce even the most bare minimum standards".

President Trump is holding his final midterm rally in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, just nine hours before the polls open in the state.

Fox News draws a distinction between its opinion and news sides of the house.
