Sean Hannity talks with Meagan Broussard

After her interview with ABC’s Chris Cuomo, Fox News’s Sean Hannity sat down with Meagan Broussard, one of women with whom Rep. Anthony Weiner had a sexting relationship.

Like ABC, Hannity got Broussard’s name from Andrew Breitbart — also a guest on “Hannity” last night — whose relentless coverage of this story culminated in Weiner’s public admission yesterday.

Hannity sat down with Broussard at the Fox News studios last night around 7pmET. The show aired short clips of the interview and will air the entirety, tonight.

This morning on “GMA”, conservative author Ann Coulter — also on “Hannity” last night — gave credit to Cuomo and his team for their reporting. “Congratulations to ABC. You guys own the Weiner story. You did all of the reporting.”

Bill O’Reilly & Ann Coulter Website Hacker Sentenced

The 23-year-old student hacker, Mitchell Frost, who hacked into the websites of Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly and fellow FNC personality and conservative pundit, Ann Coulter, was sentenced to 30 months in prison.

Along with the prison sentence, Frost has been ordered to pay restitution: $40,000 to O’Reilly and $10,000 to the University of Akron, where the student had been studying during the crime.

The Ohio student pleaded guilty in May to using school computers and networks to access the sites. Between August 2006 and March 2007, Frost hacked into┬áRudy Giuliani’s Joinrudy2008.com, Billoreilly.com and Anncoulter.com.

Red Eye’s Andy Levy Reveals His ‘Arenaphobia’

AndyLevy070110.jpg Fox News Channel’s late night show “Red Eye” has a cult following among many insomniacs. Part of that obsession is no doubt due to the program’s “ombudsman” Andy Levy.

Human EventsLisa De Pasquale subjects Levy to her “De Pasquale’s Dozen” line of questioning.

The questions are mostly fun, asking Levy what is on his summer reading list and what non-news websites he visits (the man loves MTA.info). But Levy also has a few words about another cable news personality:

4. Comedians like Joy Behar, Aisha Tyler and Whoopi Goldberg have criticized people like Ann Coulter for putting jokes into their speeches and writing. It’s ok for comedians to dabble in politics, but not the other way around. What role do you think humor has in politics?

LEVY: I think humor plays a huge role in politics-how could it not, with Joe Biden being Vice President? And I’m fine with that. (What I’m not fine with is you referring to Joy Behar as a comedian. It’s my understanding that comedians are supposed to be funny.)

Levy also discusses his tragic case of “arenaphobia” in the full interview.

Joy Behar: “I Don’t Want To Do Just a Liberal Show”

behar_6-12.jpgSoon-to-be HLN host Joy Behar gave some insight into what she envisions for her show, in an interview with HuffPost’s Danny Shea.

“I don’t want to do just a liberal show,” she said. “I interviewed Ann Coulter when I was sitting in for Larry King a couple of times, and we have a rapport. I like to talk to her. I think it’s interesting to me to talk to people who don’t agree with me all the time. Rush Limbaugh, let’s get him on the show! Even Dick Cheney is welcome on my show. I’ll have a faucet ready for him but he can come.”

And how about big interview of the day, Gov. Sarah Palin? “I’d love to have Sarah Palin on the show,” Behar said. “She would do very well with me, because I’m not out to get Sarah Palin.”

She also said King called her “as soon as he heard and congratulated me,” but the 9pmET ratings leader Sean Hannity “hasn’t called. “He doesn’t call, he doesn’t send me an email — what’s up with that?” she said.

Hannity Tells Grodin He’ll Get Waterboarded For Charity

hannity_4-23.bmpWhenever Charles Grodin stops by for an interview with FNC’s Sean Hannity, there’s going to be fireworks.

Grodin got in his usual cracks during his appearance last night — about Hannity’s make-up, and asking “Where’s Alan?” and “Are you dating Ann Coulter?”

But in a discussion about torture, Grodin asked Hannity if he would agree to be waterboarded, and it appears the FNC host agreed.

“I’ll do it for charity,” he said. “I’ll let you do it. I’ll do it for the troops families.”

It wouldn’t be the first time someone on FNC was waterboarded — correspondent Steve Harrigan underwent the tactic for a report in 2006.

Fox’s “Family Guy” Takes Shots at Fox News Channel

FamilyGuyFNC_3.26.bmpOn Sunday’s “Family Guy,” Lois Griffin becomes a reporter for Fox News Channel. And the show’s producers didn’t hold back in their stereotypical portrayal of FNC. Brian, the family dog, says Fox News is “evil and they distort the truth and they do the bidding of the Republican party.” On the other hand, while taking a tour of an animated Fox News, Stewie, finds, “This whole place feels like a warm blanket.”

There were also shots at Ann Coulter, Al Gore, and a twist involving Michael Moore, Rush Limbaugh and Fred Savage.

Also on Sunday’s show, a cameo from News Corp.’s departing president Peter Chernin. The LATimes’ reports today Chernin recorded his part last year which means this script has been in the works for some time.

The episode was the 15th most popular show in the A18-49 demo last week.

The entire show, after the jump, via Hulu…

Preaching To The Choir

huckabee_2-26.jpgFox News host Mike Huckabee addressed the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) today, and took some shots at his competitors, reports Politico. “It’s not MSNBC, but the MSBS channel,” he said.

“I’m in competition with the other cable networks, and one of them finally found religion,” said Huckabee. “I call them the ‘oh God’ network.”

Other speakers at CPAC over the next three days include Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Joe the Plumber and new RNC chair Michael Steele.

And speaking right now — MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough (and former MSNBC’er Tucker Carlson).

Note to Sean Hannity…

…from a TVNewser reader: “Can someone please tell Sean Hannity to stop clicking and banging his pen. It’s so loud and annoying when a guest is talking.”

The tip came just after Hannity’s interview with Ann Coulter.

Huckabee to Coulter: “Do You Think I’m Stupid?”

huckabee_1-12.bmpAnn Coulter appeared this weekend on FNC’s “Huckabee” and the former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee conducted one of the more contentious interviews he’s had (which still means it was fairly mild for a Coulter interview). He started by playing some of Coulter’s past statements about him, including “a stupid Christian,” “they’d like him better if he still weighed 600 pounds” and (gasp) “the Republican Jimmy Carter.”

“Do you think I’m stupid? Look at me in the face, Ann,” said Huckabee.

“No you are not, you are the wittiest and the quickest,” she said.

After discussing Coulter’s claims point-by-point, Huckabee said, “This a terrific book, the next time you write one you have to get all this stuff cleared up about me.”

Coulter on NBC: “I Am Very Happy To Be Here”

coulter_1-7.bmpBringing this whole potentially manufactured controversy story full circle, Ann Coulter was interviewed by Matt Lauer this morning on the Today show.

“It took the Drudge Report posting that for the Wednesday invitation but I am very happy to be here,” she said.

Again, after NBC canceled Monday and Drudge Report said Coulter was “banned for life,” Coulter went on “Hannity & Colmes” and knocked NBC’s offer, then went on CBS today and finally decided to go on NBC after all.

“Do you think though that much was made of this and maybe you helped fan the fire a little bit to make a controversy to sell the book?” asked Lauer.

She doesn’t really answer — but she does compare herself to Roland Burris.
