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.”
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 Rudy Giuliani’s Joinrudy2008.com, Billoreilly.com and Anncoulter.com.
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 Events‘ Lisa 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.

“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.”
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.
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.”

On 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.”
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.

Fox 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.”
Ann 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.”
