Juan Williams Slams CNN Report Claiming Sean Hannity ‘Pulled Gun’ on Him After ‘Argument’

Matthew Boyle,

The fake news establishment media at CNN is at it again. Now they are attacking Fox News host Sean Hannity, smearing his reputation with a phony story about him allegedly pointing a gun at liberal Fox News contributor Juan Williams.

Dylan Byers, one of the media writers at CNN who works for media industry defender Brian Stelter, printed a story on Thursday alleging: “Last year, after ending one of his many spirited on-air arguments with liberal contributor Juan Williams, Hannity pulled out a gun and pointed it directly at Williams.” Byers cited “three sources with knowledge of the incident” to make the claim.

“He even turned on the laser sight, causing a red dot to bob around on Williams’ body,” Byers wrote, adding in parentheses: “Hannity was just showing off, the sources said, but the unforeseen off-camera antic clearly disturbed Williams and others on set.”

Byers added in the next paragraph that the alleged incident was investigated, and it was determined nothing bad happened.

“For the record: Hannity’s colleagues brought the Williams incident to the attention of Fox News executives, though it’s not clear whether anything came of it,” Byers wrote. “The sources said it went to Bill Shine, the network’s co-president and longtime Fox News executive, who is Hannity’s longtime friend and a former producer. A Fox News spokesperson said the incident was referred to the legal and human resources departments.”

Byers buried deep in the story the actual quotes from Fox News itself, and Hannity and Williams themselves. All of them say are saying the incident is being way overblown by CNN, which is one of Fox’s competitors, is lagging behind Fox in the ratings, and is constantly under fire for printing fake news stories like this one.

“Sean Hannity has been trained in firearm safety since he was 11 years old and has a license to carry a gun in five states, including New York,” Fox News said in its statement. “The situation was thoroughly investigated and it was found that no one was put in any danger.”

Hannity himself says that CNN’s interpretation of events is “outright false reporting.”

“While discussing the issue of firearms, I showed my good friend Juan Williams my unloaded firearm in a professional and safe manner for educational purposes only,” Hannity said. “Every precautionary procedure that I have been trained in since the age of 11 was followed. I’ve had a conceal carry permit in five states for all of my adult life. Any other interpretation of this is outright false reporting.”

The kicker is Williams himself says the whole thing is being blown way out of proportion.

“This incident is being sensationalized — everything was under total control throughout and I never felt like I was put in harm’s way,” Williams said, according to the CNN report. “It was clear that Sean put my safety and security above all else and we continue to be great friends.”

    Know your enemies. Though the names are familiar, I’ve provided links to their images.

    Fox may have investigated the issue, but I’m not satisfied from a firearm safety point of view. A laser sight on a gun, even if the gun is verified empty, in my opinion it is not appropriate to point the gun at someone to demonstrate the laser. If it’s a grip laser, removal of the magazine, barrel, and slide on a semi-automatic would render the gun safe for such demonstrations, you’ll still have the frame and grips. On a revolver with an empty cylinder, and the cylinder removed on a single action, or swung out to the side on a double action, should render the gun safe for such demonstrations, providing the cylinder doesn’t interfere with the laser projection. Under the barrel/frame lasers can similarly be demonstrated in most cases by removing the magazine, slide, and barrel, or by verifying empty and removing the cylinder or swinging the cylinder to the side out of the gun.

    Interestingly, on the first page of the Google search results looking for accidents involving demonstrations or testing of Laser Sights, I came across two accidents, one fatal.

    The media is inimical to Republicans, Conservatives, Christians, and others not flaming liberal. Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, is increasingly allowing the media to get the upper hand during the press briefings. When told by an ABC reporter, and I use the term loosely, that the CIA said there is no evidence that Trump was wiretapped, Sean told him that the media is fomenting problems by selective reporting, saying that the CIA also said there is no evidence that Russia had anything to do with biasing or hacking the election, yet the media failed to report that. The reporter ignored that and aggressively continued with the “Trump is lying” narrative since the CIA (one person) said there is no evidence. Sean then read him 7 minutes worth of excerpts from the media detailing the evolution of the surveillance on Trump during the election, including very liberal media sources, and the reporter then again renewed his tirade about the CIA spokesperson saying that there is no evidence of wiretapping.

    The media needs put in their place. These badgering reporters should not be allowed in the press briefings.

    Compare this with obama era press briefings. These two involve Russia and Syria. In the first, the Russian reporter asks reasonable questions, and the press secretary becomes downright belligerent and insulting. Listen to the AP reporter Matt Lee’s comments towards the end, in support of the Russian reporter. The second one is Matt Lee again questioning the press representative about the U.S. contradictions on Russia/Syria.
