Sean Hannity “Coached” Schiavo Guests?

hannity3.jpgOn the March 31st edition of Hannity & Colmes, Terri Schiavo’s former nurses, Trudy Capone and Carla Sauer Iyer, argued that their patient wasn’t brain-dead. Lloyd Grove has the rest of the story: “Between commercials, according to an off-air audiotape obtained by investigative comedian Harry Shearer for last Sunday’s episode of his weekly radio program, ‘Le Show,’ Hannity coached the women on exactly how to respond when liberal co-host Alan Colmes cross-examined them.

‘Just say, ‘I’m here to tell what I saw,” Hannity can be heard instructing his guests. ‘No matter what the question, ‘I’m here to tell you what I saw. I’m here to tell you what I saw.”

Hannity adds helpfully: ‘Say, ‘I’m not going to be distracted by silliness.’ How’s that? Does that help you? Look into that camera. Look at me when I’m talking.’”
