Did Hannity Dump Colmes To Get Rudy?

rudy_gushes_nyp.jpgRudy Giuliani on Fox News’ Hannity and Colmes last night:

“We still have to formally announce it and do a few more things, but this about as close as you’re going to get. … Today, we just took another step toward running for president. It’s a big step, an important one.”

How did the show get the interview? An unconfirmed but interesting tip:

To get an easy interview, Rudy Giuliani cut a secret deal with Fox News to be interviewed last night ONLY BY SEAN HANNITY. Alan Colmes sat in the studio and didn’t participate.

UPDATE: Not true, says Fox News.
