NEW YORK (AP) — Sean Hannity says he “never pointed” a gun at Fox News colleague Juan Williams, despite a CNN report to the contrary.

CNN reported Thursday that Hannity pointed a gun directly at Williams and turned on the laser sight off-air following a heated segment last year.

But Hannity told the New York Daily News that he had been discussing guns and “showed my good friend Juan Williams my unloaded firearm in a professional and safe manner for educational purposes only.”

Williams said on Twitter that he and Hannity are “great friends” and the “incident is being sensationalized.” He says “everything was under total control throughout and I never felt like I was put in harm’s way.”

Fox News tells the Daily News “no one was put in any danger.”

    I guess CNN’s desperation is getting even more extreme for them to resort to this!

      They are trying to maintain the same degree of lunacy as the “Moonbats Spouting Nothing But C-r-a-p” — the commentators at “MSNBC.”

      Conservative Republicans in all positions of influence, be it governmental office or otherwise, should wake up and realize that all the tauntings, tantrums, and fake swill that the corrupted media (from national to local) continue to spew out daily is being done so for the purpose of distraction. They wish simply to thwart constructive efforts and conservative momentum and they are finding success….how better to do so than to tie up governmental leadership and persons of influence by having them chase wisps of smoke where there is no fire. Hannity does not owe them, nor do others, any explanation for their activities, neither the time of day. These distractions are proving to be of some success as they result in a massive wasting of time and productivity which would be better spent pursuing and pushing through the administrations productive agenda.

      FakeNews, taunts, and tantrums have been the mainstay of those who oppose a successful America for decades….having only these sideshow tactics, their pockets and ambitions have become as empty and debilitatingly bankrupt as their pursuits and policies.

      It wouldn’t shock me if they took someone saying “If obama upped and drop dead tomorrow, i would raise a beer and celebrate” and twist it into them making a death threat against obama..

    CNN apparently doesn’t like to publicly air comments about their reportage on their website. No Wonder given this kind of reporting.

    If Sean Hannity ever said anything bad about CNN I think they should report on that on their website too. And if anybody ever said anything bad about anybody else they should include that too, just to ensure wide coverage.

    Am I through? No. I’ve got a lot more ideas, but CNN isn’t getting them for free.

      IMO the reason they stopped allowing people to comment on a lot of their articles was they were seeing too many people DISAGREE with the liberalism they were spouting.. So stopped doing it, so they wouldn’t have to see people disagree with them..

    I can think of three nice things to say about CNN:

    1. They gave jobs to otherwise unemployed reporters.
    2. I don’t have to watch them if I don’t want to.
    3. Neither does anybody else.

    I knew I wasn’t through.

      Absolutely MichaelJ. CNN long ago stopped being a “news” organization and became a propaganda tool for left wing causes and activists. Their commentators are so blatantly biased, it is too frustrating to watch.

    Anything to further the anti 2d Amendment movement. I feel certain that if Sean had actually pointed a pistol at Juan and “illuminated the target” with a laser that we could have heard Juan down here in Texas without the need for TV, radio or any audio amplification…

      Heck, IMO if Sean had actually done as CNN said, THEY would have been the one’s reporting on it, right after they mentioned “we are suspending Sean Hannity for a month without pay, cause of”..

    Another example of CNN lying, unverified, fake news reporting. These guys lie even when they don’t have to. These jerks are the laughing stock of the Main Stream Media.

    Translation: Having thrown away what little credibility they ever had when they decided to go all-in as propaganda SHILLS for the left, they are NOW attacking those who tell the truth in a PATHETIC attempt to discredit the truth-tellers in hopes of making themselves look less CRAVEN and BIASED than they really are.

    It’s very difficult to keep a civil tongue with these anti-Trump and nation decisive news people. However with CNN I’ll make an exception. They are just vacuous wicked anti-american morons.

    The time is coming when the PRESS will have to put up or be FINED BIG TIME. when it is proven someone in the press has lied they should be fined and lose their right to publish news. This period in our history will go down as the age of liars. I know longer buy newspapers or magazines. I check the Factor on FOX. Bill backs his word with facts. And am selective on the computer. The major news outlets have recently had to fire their big guns for lying. It is no longer a disgrace for lying, it goes with our new society.

    Slander and liable laws already exist. ITS BECAUSE OF the fact, THAT THEY are not enforced enough which is why so many in the press keep getting away with outright lies.
