Trump to spend Election Day out of public eye

Trump to spend Election Day out of public eye

After years of condemning other members of the media as biased leftists, Fox News' Sean Hannity chose to abandon any illusion that he's "fair and balanced" on Monday night when he appeared on stage with President Donald Trump at a rally in Missouri.

However, in a TV interview on Monday, the United States leader said he wished he had taken a softer tone in his first two years as president.

Hannity said he had no idea he would be would be speaking, although the Trump campaign had said Saturday he would be a "special guest".

Hannity and Pirro spent the night broadcasting from the rally while simultaneously hyping the crowd ahead of Trump's arrival.

In another tweet, Hannity asserted, "And to be clear, I was not referring to my journalist colleagues at FOX News in those remarks".

In 2010, when Fox News executives learned Hannity planned to broadcast his show from a Tea Party rally in Cincinnati, the network took action.

"FOX News does not condone any talent participating in campaign events. Doctor? Please. Thank you", Trump said, pointing toward a portion of the crowd in Show Me Center in Cape Girardeau.

Hannity, the channel's most popular personality, had insisted all day that he wouldn't campaign, before appearing on the podium in a Missouri arena after being called to the stage by Trump.

In a statement, Fox News called their participation just one day before the midterm election "an unfortunate distraction". "They've been with us from the beginning". Pirro, a former NY state attorney general who has a weekend show on Fox, spoke after him.

In addition, the last few months of Trump's administration have seen tragedy and terror at the hands of a crazed mail bomber and a synagogue shooter in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania - events that may be fresh in voters' minds as they go to the polls on Tuesday.

"We were all told that Hannity was going to interview the president, but no one that I spoke with expected what happened last night", added a third senior Fox News employee.

Hannity, in his response to the criticism on Twitter, also failed to acknowledge the fact that he could have also taken the stage and delivered a series of non-partisan remarks.

Fox News did not respond to a request for comment.

He warned earlier on the telephone town hall to get out and vote because "the press is very much considering it a referendum on me and us as a movement". "Anyone doing business with Fox News should worry about the network's inability to enforce even the most bare minimum standards". Fox has not addressed the question publicly.

Fox News draws a distinction between its opinion and news sides of the house.
