Liberals are out for blood and Hannity has decided to cover all his bases just in case.
Sean Hannity is a Conservative talk show host and political commentator who currently works for Fox News. Given recent events surrounding Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity has decided to come forward and confess that the only way to properly protect himself from the same smear related fate as his colleague is to hire a team of heavy-hitting attorneys to have his back.
Hannity said he could no longer remain silent and that he had hired a team of “the best attorneys in this country” to work on his behalf.

I have to start by addressing a well-orchestrated effort by the intolerant left in this country that is designed to silence every conservative voice by any means necessary. Now, I’m speaking out tonight so that you, our audience, will understand what is really happening and what is at stake when it comes to freedom of speech in this country. Now, these tactics are right out of Saul Alinsky’s “Rule for Radicals” playbook.
Now, I’ve worked in radio for 30 years. I’ve been right here at the Fox News Channel for 21-and-a-half years. I’m very proud of that and during this time, there’ve always been efforts and attempts to smear and slander and besmirch me and other conservatives. But it has never been as intense and completely insane as it is right now.
Now, I want you to understand, every single minute, every single second I am on the air — radio, TV — there is somebody likely being paid, recording and monitoring every single word that comes out of my mouth, all in the hopes that I may say something they can twist and distort and use against me and try to destroy my reputation and get my conservative voice off the air.
