Sean Hannity may think he has Fox News all wrapped up as one of their top remaining news hosts, but a Fox News guest has now come forward with accusations of of sexual harassment. Debbie Schlussel spoke with Pat Campbell of The Pat Campbell Podcast and has some interesting information to share.
Schlussel said that Sean Hannity sexually harassed her by trying to get her to go back to his hotel with him. She also mentioned the name of his executive producer, Bill Shine. She said both Shine and Sean Hannity, “treated me horribly and basically head faked me, and told me Oh, we’re going to double team this [Palestenian guy],” which seemed like a strange phrase to use. Later, whenever she tried to say something she was shut down and was told to “obey your host” and “we’re going to shut off your microphone,” (in her ear piece) if she didn’t do what they told her to do.
Schlussel said she was on the Sean Hannity show on Fox with another guest, a Palestinian man. The other guest did most of the speaking and she was hardly allowed to comment on anything at all. When she looked back at the tapes, Sean Hannity and the other guest had done most of the talking.
After the show, Debbie Schlussel said, it was made clear that if she didn’t go back to the hotel with Hannity that she knew she wasn’t going to be invited to come back on the show again.
Schlussel also mentioned Sean Hannity’s former executive producer and suggested that people should be asking why she quit. She says there is a “big story behind it…and it’s not above board.” This former executive producer of Hannity’s has never come forward with any sexual allegations but perhaps she will now, if something indeed did happen with Hannity, as Schlussel suggests.
Schlussel also mentions a previous “guest host” from the Fox News Show, Hannity, that is now deceased, who would call her up late at night. He would hit on her and she was never allowed on his radio show after she turned him down. It could be Alan Colmes, who passed away on February 23, 2017, that she’s referring to.
Debbie Schlussel is one Fox News guest that believes that there is a lot more going on at Fox News behind the scenes that has yet to come out. She believes that if people just ask the right questions of the right people, more will be revealed.
Schlussel said, “This kind of stuff is all over the place at Fox News and anything that has to do with Sean Hannity.”
The allegations against Sean Hannity come directly after Bill O’Reilly, one of Fox News’ top hosts was forced out and lost his job due to the many sexual harassment allegations that came forth. O’Reilly’s actions result in 21st Century Fox paying out approximately $13 million to the five women that made various sexual allegations. More than 50 advertisers pulled their advertising from the show and Roger E. Ailes was forced out of his position as chairman of Fox News.
Both O’Reilly and Ailes have not suffered financially in this whole fiasco and both have reportedly received payouts of their contracts that go into the tens of millions of dollars. O’Reilly still maintains that he is innocent.
O’Reilly will be going live with his podcast on his own website on Monday, April 24, 2017.
What do you think? Now that Schlussel has come out with her own story about Sean Hannity, will other women come forth? Will this be the beginning of the end of Sean Hannity’s career at Fox News?
Editor’s note: Fox News has reached out to the Inquisitr with a statement from Sean Hannity.
“LET ME BE CLEAR THE COMMENTS ABOUT ME ON A RADIO SHOW THIS WEEK by this individual ARE 100% false and a complete fabrication.
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.
This individual desperately seeks attention by any means necessary, including making unfounded personal attacks and using indefensible and outrageous political rhetoric.
My patience with this individual is over. I have retained a team of some of the finest and toughest lawyers in the country who are now in the process of laying out the legal course of action we will be taking against this individual.
In this fiercely divided & vindictive political climate I will no longer allow slander and lies about me to go unchallenged, as I see a coordinated effort afoot to now silence those with conservative views. I will fight every single lie about me by all legal means available to me as an American.”
