Fox says Hannity won't be a guest at Trump rally

Fox News primetime host Sean Hannity defended his controversial decision to campaign on stage with President Donald Trump at a Missouri rally on the eve of the midterm elections, and said he hadn't meant to call his Fox colleagues "fake news" when he bashed the media at the event.

Hannity, the channel's most popular personality, had insisted all day that he wouldn't campaign, before appearing on the podium in a Missouri arena after being called to the stage by Trump.

But, approximately 12 hours after Hannity posted his tweet, he was campaigning on stage with Trump in one of the clearest demonstrations yet of the cozy relationship between the network and the Trump White House. And it made clear the extent to which Trump has remade his party to his own specifications, as he suggested that those who survived were indebted to him, a president who prizes loyalty above all else.

Is this your first day at Fox News and you didn't know what the network was? "We have an extraordinary team of journalists helming our coverage tonight and we are extremely proud of their work", the statement read. But Fox News addressed the incident on Election Day, calling it "an unfortunate distraction".

"There's a woman on Saturday night who treats us very well", Trump said, praising Pirro's fiery opening monologues as "always brilliant".

Fox News responded to Fox anchor Sean Hannity's appearance at a "Make America Great Again" rally on Monday night, in which Hannity appeared onstage with President Donald Trump. "I think that's going to bring a lot of people together, it's going to start", said the President. The New York Times noted that Hawley was given only five minutes to speak while right-wing radio jockey Rush Limbaugh was given ten minutes.

Democrats could derail Mr Trump's legislative agenda for the next two years should they win control of the House or the Senate.

Since Trump has entered the Oval Office, they've become even closer.

As observers pointed out, Fox News journalists were among the "people in the back" that Hannity insulted.

The Fox News employees all spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the matter. "I am covering the final rally for the show".

The Trump campaign had promoted Hannity over the weekend as a "special guest" at Trump's final rally before Tuesday's midterm election.

"It disturbs me to my core", another Fox News staffer agreed. When the POTUS invited me on stage to give a few remarks last night, I was surprised, yet honored by the president's request.

A spokeswoman for the parent company referred an inquiry to Fox News, which did not elaborate on whether Hannity had been reprimanded in any other fashion. "They do incredible work day in and day out in a fair and balanced way and It is an honor to work with such great professionals", he wrote.

Hannity was rebuked by Fox in 2010 when the Tea Party advertised he would be appearing at one of its rallies.

"They can play that game, but we can play it better".

The newspaper asked a Fox News spokesperson in April of 2018 whether Hannity was considered a journalist. Following Hannity's brief remarks, Trump introduced Jeanine Pirro.
