The Dems’ Imam: Why is Sean Hannity Deliberately Ripping Me Off?

By Debbie Schlussel
**** UPDATE: Top Conservative Blogger Rips Sean Hannity’s Plagiarism of Schlussel on Al-Husainy; VIDEO: NYTimes Best-Selling Islam Expert Cites Schlussel on Al-Husainy ****
Below is the original, unabridged version of the column on Imam Husham Al-Husainy that ran in Tuesday’s New York Post. Readers of my work and of this site know that I risked my life to go undercover to Hezbollah events and rallies in Dearbornistan to bring you exclusive info on Al-Husainy, the man who delivered the invocation on Friday at the Democratic National Committee Winter Meeting. And that I’ve been writing about Al-Husainy since the beginning of year and before (in the Wall Street Journal).
Sean Hannity knows it, too. And so does his FOX News Channel executive producer, John Finley (direct line: (212) 301-3194).

Sean Hannity Rips Off My Work on Imam Husham Al-Husainy

Yet, while admittedly reading my exclusive work on Al-Husainy, they chose to deliberately steal my work on FOX News’ “Hannity & Colmes,” uncredited for two nights in a row. Tonight will make three. (See video from Nights One and Two of the Hannity Rip-off of Schlussel.)
They also chose not only to rip me off and use my work uncredited, but to repeatedly have on others who are clueless about the Imam to use my work, too. Last night, Mark Steyn ripped me off on the show. Thanks, Mark. If Sean, Alan Colmes or Finley were really truly interested in discussing this imam accurately and getting the message out about him, they’d have actually had someone who knows about him on the show–ME.
The first night, Tuesday Night, I contacted Sean on his cellphone. He was, as usual, “too busy” and couldn’t be bothered to do the right thing. He admitted he knew he used my work uncredited, and I managed to get him to promise to have me on to discuss my original work, he said, “if we talk about this again on the show.” I also suggested having Al-Husainy, himself, on along with myself, since I’m only the single commentator who actually knows something–actually, a lot–about him. Sean promised that if they had the imam on, he and John Finley would have me on, too.
But, as is usual for Sean these days, he did not keep his word. Last night, not only did they rip my work off again, but they questioned it (without mentioning my name or allowing me to be on to defend it). Suddenly, Hannity was saying Al-Husainy “reportedly” was at pro-Hezbollah rallies, and Colmes claimed, “We’ve been unable to confirm that,” and questioned my New York Post column’s accuracy.
Well, that’s interesting to me–they never attempted to “confirm” this in the least. Since I’m the source of the info–I WAS THERE AT THOSE RALLIES and wrote about it in the New York Post column they ripped off–why didn’t they contact me? I have pictures, etc. And why can’t they have me on instead of Steyn and another person who are clueless on this? And are they now questioning the accuracy of their fellow News Corp property, the New York Post? I’m sure Rupert Murdoch would love to know that Hannity & Colmes believe his other news property is an inaccurate news source.
Tonight, they are having Imam Al-Husainy on, without me, also contrary to Sean’s promise. Why can’t Sean Hannity keep his word? And why is he ripping off my work? I called him after last night’s show–the second time he deliberately ripped me off on this particular topic–and politely asked why he did not have me on to defend my exclusive work and/or give me credit. He did not answer. He just hung up. He just can’t be bothered.
Sean’s viewers and listeners are noting this deliberate rip-off of my work, as many have sent me and him e-mails about it. His current and former nationally syndicated radio show producers both e-mailed Sean with my work and asked him to give me credit and have me on. But he won’t listen to them either. For whatever illegitimate reason, Sean Hannity would rather rip me off and deny me what I rightfully deserve for my hard work.
That’s Sean Hannity for you. This is not the first time he’s done this to me, just the latest. Real conservatives believe in property rights, and they don’t steal from others. But those apparently aren’t the beliefs of Sean Hannity and his producer John Finley. And if I’m not good enough to have on the show anymore, then my work (uncredited) is not good enough either, and I’d appreciate it if they’d quit stealing from me. Conversely, if my work is good enough for their show (and we know that it is, or they wouldn’t keep ripping it off), then I should be good enough, too.
Sean was all over Jayson Blair when he plagiarized (and fabricated) at the New York Times. But when the shoe’s on the other foot . . . .
Call ((212) 301-3194) and E-mail John Finley (I have–he won’t return my calls; but continues to use my work), and ask him why they are deliberately ripping off my hard work. Call ((212) 301-3289) and E-mail FOX News Senior Vice President Bill Shine (Sean’s boss and good friend) and ask him why they are deliberately keeping me from getting credit for and defending my work. Neither Finley nor Shine has returned a single call or e-mail of mine regarding this, because they know they ripped me off. Otherwise, they’d deny it.
Fair and Balanced? In my case, it’s more like just plain Stolen.

The Democrat’s Strange New Imam
By Debbie Schlussel
Is the Democratic National Committee’s chosen Islamic clergy an insight into the party’s direction?
If the use of extremist Imam Husham Al-Husainy to deliver the invocation at the DNC’s Winter Meeting Friday is any indication, it’s a frightening path.
Al-Husainy’s words asking God to “help us stop . . . occupation and oppression” were jarring enough, since his words likely refer to either American soldiers in Iraq or Jews in Israel, since in the past he’s referred to both as “occupiers” and “oppressors.” But his statements and activity since he’s been in the United States make those words even more ominous.
Al-Husainy heads the Karbalaa Islamic Education Center mosque in Dearborn, Michigan, one of the three largest Shi’ite mosques in North America. He has a long record of support for prominent Islamists at war with the United States and Israel.
His ties to Iran are frightening. Al-Husainy was an advisor to the late Mohammed Bakr Al-Hakim, leader of the Iran-backed Supreme Council for the Islamic Revolution.
Al-Husainy is also an open supporter of the late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, under whose hegemony American hostages were held for 444 days in Iran from 1979-1981. In 2004, upon the death of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, Al-Husainy led a protest march through Dearborn memorializing him. At the march, Al-Husainy and his followers held posters bearing the enlarged photo of Khomeini.
An open supporter of Hezbollah, he led rallies last summer through Dearborn, arm in arm with his friend, Neturei Karta Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss. Swastikas and anti-American, anti-Semitic posters were displayed by protesters, many of whom were Al-Husainy’s congregants. Al-Husainy said of Weiss–who attended Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s Holocaust denial conference–”We make a great team, don’t we?”
He asked that rhetorical question at an anti-Semitic rally of 3,000 Hezbollah supporters at Dearborn’s Bint Jebail Cultural Center, named for the Hezbollah stronghold in South Lebanon, from rockets rained on Israel. I was there and watched as Al-Husainy was among several who delivered hate-filled, anti-American rhetoric. I watched him cheer others on when they called for the hastened destruction of the Jews and when one speaker said Americans and Jews are “diseased.”
Then, there are Al-Husainy’s multiple anti-Semitic, anti-American conspiracy theories. In one interview, he said:

Saddam . . . he handed Iraq to the coalition. I believe he is an agent of America. . . . Saddam created a bunch of gangs who have no faith . . . . We also think some outsiders, with some Iraqis, and, by the way, I don’t want to exclude the Zionists. I think some extremists from the Mossad came in and took a chance to have some revenge, because we don’t know who killed [Imam Mohammed Bakr] Al-Hakim or Sergio Vieira De Mello, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.

In another interview quoted in the L.A. Times, Al-Husainy said that the current chaos in Iraq is the result of an intentional Jewish Zionist conspiracy theory:

the Zionist special group [opposes] the improvement of the relationship between Christians and Muslims.
America itself is a victim of a special-interest group that doesn’t want it to have a good relationship with the Muslim world.

While always an extremist, Al-Husainy was initially a supporter of America’s War in Iraq. He was photographed in Detroit papers being hugged by President Bush in Spring 2003. But by Summer 2004, he was protesting President Bush and demanding that U.S. troops pull out of Iraq. It was a time of heightened violence against Americans perpetrated by Muqtada Al-Sadr’s Jaish Al-Mahdi, with whom Al-Husainy and his congregants are sympathetic. By removing Saddam, America cleared the path for Al-Husainy’s extremist brand of Shi’ism to take over Iraq.
Conspiracy theories against America and the Jews, support for Ayatollah Khomeini and participants in a Holocaust conference–it used to be that these things would disqualify someone from a prominent role at Democratic Party events.
So what’s changed?
It appears to be the Democrats’ opposition to President Bush in Iraq. And with the choice of Al-Husainy to deliver their opening prayer, they apparently want America to lose at all cost.

Debbie–
I understand the PR aspects of wanting to be on Sean’s show, but, let’s face it, this guy has always been a lightweight. Thanks for letting us know he also steals the work of others, even if that practice is sadly becoming far too common on both sides of the fence.
Hannity’s claims to fame are that he is not quite as irritating (nor as bright) as Michael Medved, and that he pretty much walked into a huge syndication deal. Sean doesn’t have to think too much, since about all he does is parrot Republican party talking points, and pass valuable air time with such washed up politico-celebs as Newt Gingrich and Bill Bennett.
It is always stirring to hear from the former speaker who had the world on a string, and lost it, about as much as it is to listen to the gambling-addicted chain-smoking pompous fallen moralist.
And, don’t you just hate the grating repetition, that started every new hour of his show, when Sean plays a sliced and diced version of Gretchen Peters’ “Independence Day,” as sung by Martina McBride?
This may come as a shock to many of Sean’s somnolent fans, but the song is about a woman who burns down her house to kill her abusive husband. It was, stupidly enough, adopted by some as a post 9/11 anthem, because of three lines
“Let freedom ring!”
“Let the whole world know that today is a day of reckoning”
“Let the guilty pay!”
Only in America would a song condoning homicidal arson be used to rally us against terrorists who performed the same act on a much grander scale. And only in America would a clueless jerk play it three times a day, five days a week, for this purpose on nationally syndicated radio.
Talk radio, except for Michael Savage and a very few others is not what it used to be…

Red Ryder on February 8, 2007 at 8:45 am

I don’t understand why Sean doesn’t acknowledge you at the beginning of the segment. It just doesn’t make sense. Sean also is deadset in his belief that it’s only ‘radical Islam’, not Islam that is the problem. Anytime someone brings up Islam, not ‘radical Islam’ as the problem, Sean obfuscates or changes the subject immediately. Why does he do this? Because that is Bush’s position, i.e. religion of peace, tiny minority, hijacked, and mustn’t betray him? Bush is very stubborn, while it is obvious his democracy ‘light unto the Muslim nations’ has been a failure because Islam will never allow manmade law (it’s as simple as that), Bush refuses to believe that. Sean, likewise, is set with his ‘radical Islam’ theory. Despite thousands of examples to the contrary (including a book of hate that provides absolute proof of Islam’s imperialistic and violent mandate), he won’t have any of it.

Debbie:
Thank you so much for both putting in the dangerous work on the Imman and for pointing out the unconservative behavior from Hannity.
I would be admittedly be scared to do what you did even though I am not recognizable (not too many tv/radio appearances in my past) and I am a 6’3″ man. Your ventures into Dearbornistan do exhibit bravery, and thus merit commendation, not mere credit as a source.
Know that your readers very much appreciate you. I learn more from reading your site and JihadWatch/DhimmiWatch in one day than I do from any other source.
I will do my part to follow-up with Fox/Hannity on this.
Thanks again.

JSobieski on February 8, 2007 at 8:51 am

Hannity/Colmes is a waste of time. Shud be called Two Guys and No Brains. Hannity had Chuck Norris sit in for him one night and Norris was clueless. I only watch the show to see how high Colmes has his hair fluffed up.

TheOmegaMan on February 8, 2007 at 8:59 am

I noticed your name was not mentioned on H&C and wondered about it. Readers of your blog already knew all about the Imam al-Huseiny at the Democrat retreat. Sean is really just a pretty face. Not the brightest. It’s all about him. Sean’s counterpart MUST be as hideously unsightly as Alan Colmes or Sean might feel threatened because all he has is his looks. Colmes is another idiot. Putting aside his unfortunate appearance Alan has never once said anything of value. He’s just a glib knee-jerk who does not offer anything interesting or thought-provoking. Alan’s idea of incisiveness is to say “Aren’t you being hypocritical? Gotcha!” I don’t really watch H&C anymore–Sean just wants to be loved and Alan is happy just to have a job. (How’s that for counterintuitive casting–actually putting Alan’s face on TV? Bold.)

John Sobieski: brilliant thesis.
One problem: they had Hirsi Ali on the other night, and she said that Islam itself, not radical Islam, is the problem. This didn’t seem to bother Hannity at all.
I think the real problem is that he didn’t attribute the story to Debbie when he first discussed it, and to give credit now would constitute a loss of face. It’s pride, plain and simple.
As for Mark Steyn, he’s just commenting on this topic, not really reporting.
Debbie: it was Colmes who said they can’t confirm that al-Husainy was at a pro-Hezbollah rally. Since you have the photos, wrote about it at the time, and were there, I think they should ask you about it.
Please put up all your photos right now, so that we can see them in advance of al-Husainy appearance on Fox. Then, if they want to use them, they’ll have to credit you.
WRONG. SEAN ALSO SAID, “REPORTEDLY,” WHERE AS THE NIGHT BEFORE THEY RIPPED ME OFF STRAIGHT. THEY WERE DISTANCING THEMSELVES FROM MY WORK, B/C THEY KNOW THAT THEIR PLAGIARISM OF MY WORK CONSTITUTED A LACK OF INDEPENDENT SOURCING, WHICH I TOLD SEAN AND HIS PRODUCER THEY COULD NOT DO, B/C I WAS THERE–THEY WERE NOT. AS FOR PIX, O’REILLY RIPPED OFF A PHOTO I HAD OF AL-ARIAN AND THE BUSHES FROM ME. O’REILLY’S PRODUCER–THE FORMER MS. FALAFEL, ANDREA MACKRIS–ASKED ME FOR THE PHOTO, AND WHEN I SAID NO (B/C O’REILLY WOULDN’T HAVE ME ON), THEY STOLE IT ANYWAY.

Mark Steyn always makes an show worthwhile viewing.
I BEG TO DIFFER. WATCH THE VIDEO. MARK STEYN–IN ADDITION TO RIPPING ME OFF–DIDN’T KNOW WHAT HE WAS TALKING ABOUT REGARDING AL-HUSAINY. HE ADDED NOTHING. WITHOUT THE ENGLISH ACCENT, YOU’D BE LESS IMPRESSED.

I’m sorry you did not get credit for your excellent work.
Despite that, I hope you continue to do what you do.

Sean Hannity is a knob, and perpetual seeker of publicity and praise from whomever will give it to him. He lost all credibility the day he went down to Georgia to personally cover that ridiculous “Runaway Bride” story. Seeing him sit there panering to that nerd-Husband and his family made me want to vomit. I swore off both him and Fox News from that point on (except for the Saturday morning business shows which are the only worth watching anymore on that network).

David Svendsen on February 8, 2007 at 12:33 pm

Debbie:
I love what you do, but there is no reason for you to start a fight with Steyn on this issue. I am not aware of any evidence that he knowingly participated in an effort not to credit you. I don’t think he was aware that you were the original source for the story—Fox invited Steyn to talk on this topic, not vice versa. If he had been aware that the particular factual proposition would be questioned (e.g. what was said at the rally), I think Steyn would have looked it up.
Shame on Fox and on Hannity for not having you as a guest. However, if Fox is going to resort to a standby list for Jihad issues, Steyn is probably better than anyone else on the list. Steyn at least has some familiarity with the Koran.
Steyn’s book America Alone is the most “mainstream” of the books that are actually useful to combat Jihad (Robert is still looked at as an oddity, although I think that is changing). Moreover, it is the best book on Slow Jihad that I am aware of.
My point is the anti-jihad brigades need as many useful voices as possible, and unlike Hannity, Steyn is insightful and he understands Islam more than many.
It pains the cause to see you go after Steyn, unless of course there is evidence to suggest that his role was not innocent.
Once again, keep up the great work. You are a brave woman.
IF HE KNEW HE WAS ON TO TALK ABOUT THIS IMAM AND LOOKED IT UP, AS YOU CLAIM, THEN WHERE DO YOU THINK HE GOT THE INFO FROM ABOUT THE HEZBOLLAH RALLIES? THERE’S ONLY ONE SOURCE–ME. AND HE USED THE FACT THAT THE GUY LED THE RALLIES. SO WHERE DID HE GET THAT FROM?
DEBBIE SCHLUSSEL

JSobieski on February 8, 2007 at 12:56 pm

I agree that Steyn is a good guy, and he has really spiked interest in the whole subject. He couldn’t be expected to know about the source of this material.
That said, it’s crazy that you, who knows more about al-Husainy than anyone, is excluded from the discussion. It’s like discussing physics and not inviting Einstein, or architecture and excluding Frank Lloyd Wright (or modern dance and exluding Jerome Robbins for you girly-men out there).

sonomaca on February 8, 2007 at 1:22 pm

Anoyone who knows Sean from his old radio shows know he is a suck-up phony. I’ve ment him in person, away from one of his events, and he can’t be bothered to say “hi”. I’ve heard this from someone else as well. He is a media-whore, and never sticks his neck out.
I like Steyn, and hope this was an oversight. He may have thought this news had become “common knowledge”. Hopefully, he corrects his oversight, though. I used to think people thought he was more intellectual b/c of his accent, too! But after reading “America Alone”, I think he is highly intellectual and also happens to have an annoying English accent.
Cheers!

RW_Wacko on February 8, 2007 at 1:52 pm

Welcome to the Sean’s World. Come on we all know the game now. Hannity takes his talking points from the GOP and anything that makes the GOP look bad and Georgie Bush bad cannot be allowed. Thus when it was found out that G.W. also had meetings with said cleric it had to be hushed up. Hannity has no values he is just the pretty boy they stick up there to push their message (what ever that is for the night). Anything real or attempting to get to the bottom of the problem cannot be allowed.
You rock the boat too much becuase you might speak the truth about Islam. The same has happened to others like Robert Spencer etc. Hannity is not a conservative but a republican tool and hack.
There is a difference.
Keep up the good work and forget them for in the end they will be proven to be hacks and the real cream will rise to the top. The word is getting out on Hannity for what and who he is. In fact Fox news in general has been a disapointment overall. The only reason people cling to them is because CNN and MSNBC suck even more.

greatcometof1577 on February 8, 2007 at 2:24 pm

In other words….
Debbie Schlussel….you are a “Bad American”.
Just Kidding!
But we all know Sean Hannity is a “Good American”
Right!…Its like Kindergarten. Maybe if you write him a note in crayon and draw a pretty flower in margin he will let you on the show.

greatcometof1577 on February 8, 2007 at 2:35 pm

Debbie, it seems pretty obvious to me that Sean Hannity is only interested in this story in so far as it allows him to bash the Democrats (which is all he is interested in). Since your site does mention the fact that Pres. Bush was hugging the very same Imam a year back it is ‘embarassing’ as far as Hannity is concerned. This seems to me to be the obvious reason why he doesn’t give you credit for this story or why he hasn’t invited you to discuss this topic on air.

Razdan on February 8, 2007 at 2:47 pm

Well, I’ve done my part with the emails. It will be interesting to see what they do with them, since I’m guessing that several readers did the same. Am I expecting a reply? No. But should I recieve one, I will be delighted to forward it on to you! Just one more disappointment for this life-long conservative – (sigh!) I always expected so much better from one of (I thought) my own than I did from the liberals who I find to be very flexible for the highest bidder.

Hilltopbabe on February 8, 2007 at 2:49 pm

I may have missed this, but the question has to be how did this Dearborn imam get to address the Democrats? To me, the best guess is Congressman John Dingell, who represents Dearborn. He is the senior Democrat in the House now, so he is listened to with great respect. During Hezbollah’s war against Israel, he declined to take sides. So the Muslim vote is clearly influencing attitudes and aiding their infiltration with their views in very high places. Can John Dingell be ignorant of the imam’s past? If he was not the person who recommended the speaker, with his knowledge should he not have objected?

So long Sean, we thought we knew you pretty well; but in reality, we hardly knew ye at all.

SeanÖYOUR THEFT is obvious.
Time to be a man and own up. Give Debbie her due! You should be downright ASHAMED at ìripping offî someone as HARD-WORKING as Debbie!
She invests all the time, exposes herself to personal riskÖdoes all that hard workÖand then you steal it.
Have you no shame, man?
I guess youíre too proud to do the right thingñ
I wonder now WHO ELSE has been ìripped offî?
I am much more surprised regarding Mark SteynÖand his theft. Very sad indeed~

The Canadien on February 8, 2007 at 4:27 pm

I watched the H&C segment with Mark Steyn. He stole nothing, so that charge is totally baseless. The reference to demonstrations that Debbie picked up on was made by Sean Hannity earlier in the discussion. Hannity said he was reading from “reports.” That’s all Mark Steyn knew and his commentary flowed from that.
It is a mystery why H&C don’t have Debbie the eye witness on the show.
WRONG, MARK STEYN TALKED ABOUT THE IMAM LEADING HEZBO RALLIES. WHERE DID HE GET THAT FROM? ME. WHEN COLMES CALLED HIM ON IT CLAIMING THEY WERE “UNABLE TO CONFIRM IT,” STEYN WAS CLUELESS AS TO HOW TO RESPOND B/C THAT INFO WAS FROM ME. DANIEL PIPES DID THE SAME THING, AGAIN, TODAY, ON SEAN VANITY’S RADIO SHOW–WHERE PIPES WAS EQUALLY CLUELESS ABOUT THIS GUY–AS SEAN CONTINUES TO BE, AND WHERE SEAN CONTINUED HIS THIEVERY AND REFUSAL TO GIVE ME CREDIT OR HAVE ME ON.

Debbie, I got a call this morning from Dick Morris’ fundraising effort. While at present I am not financially able to contribute to his effort, I did let the caller know just how utterly disappointed I was in Sean about this affair and asked that she relay that info to Dick Morris who has Sean’s ear.
One other minor item, if I may. Your replies in ALL CAPS are a tad bit jarring and makes you sound far too angry (although in this instance, I agree you have every right to be so).
However, may I suggest it would be better if you could use perhaps bold italics or something other than all caps for your replies?
Just a thought.

[WRONG, MARK STEYN TALKED ABOUT THE IMAM LEADING HEZBO RALLIES. WHERE DID HE GET THAT FROM? ME]
Mark Steyn on H&C:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxbLTi_fdP4
He got it from Sean who stole it from you. Remember Ann Coulter also said the Iman led Hezbo rallies after Sean said it. But I would agree that H&C should get you on to confirm the allegations, otherwise Sean and guests like Mark Steyn are making themselves look foolish by appearing to bark up the wrong tree.

Norman Blitzer on February 8, 2007 at 9:04 pm

So, someone in the big ole media can’t credit a source while little ole me can link back to you and also mention your name? This is pathetic. He’s being an ass.

Mark on February 8, 2007 at 9:54 pm

The stuff that happens behind the scenes–what an education! You kicked butt on Paula Zahn last week Debbie–and I am going to hope that Hannity walks his talk on this and does what he said he would do–that he will credit your work and have you on. I would so love to see you take on a moron like Al-Husainy–that would be such a treat.
I watched scum Al-Husainy on there tonight and Hannity was seemingly on the attack. I was at the gym so I could only read the subtitles–and I was well informed on this islamo-sleaze because of your site. I had no idea that Hannity would back stab you like that–that it had happened before too. It really aggravates me.
Take solace Debbie–you ARE breaking through and will have to be a regular guest on these programs real soon. You can’t be held back. Fox wil hear from us. Hannity will pay a price for this screw job–because the people I know who “respect” him–will not put up with kind of duplicity. Thanks for letting us know about the contacts and what went on here–we will get the word out there.
Hannity–now do right you backstabber!!

BB on February 8, 2007 at 11:51 pm

Debbie, you are a GREAT American!
I did my part and sent two emails to Fox.
I have listened to Hannity many times, and every time he comes on the radio, I listen less and less. Now I know why. The guy is not entertaining, but he is repetitious in extreme. Rush seems to be a Republican mouthpiece, but at least he can entertain.
How about a photo of you in a Burka? Those beautiful eyes of yours, why I’d recognize them!

Dr.Dale on February 9, 2007 at 2:42 am

Dear Debbie;
Good afternoon! I hope you are feeling well today.
Last night, on your behalf, I sent an E-mail to S.Hannity’s producer, stating in so many words that I am boycotting his show until they both make amends to you. Publicly.
In my opinion they committed a blatant act of thievery, made worse by their appearent lack of conscience, or regret.
I have been a fan of your’s for about six months. I read your Blog several times a week. Consequently, I have known the truth about Al-Husainy, and many other things, for a long time. I appreciate your intelligence; sense of humor; and hard work.
Thank you;
EJO

EJO on February 9, 2007 at 12:04 pm

Debbie: for whatever it’s worth, I think Sean credited you for a brief moment during his al-Husainy segment on tonite’s “Hannity and Friends”
[RTH: NOPE. HE DID NOT CREDIT ME, EVER. THAT WAS MICHAEL REAGAN, A REAL MENSCH, WHO DID IT ON "HANNITY'S SCHLUSSEL'S AMERICA." AND SEAN WINCED. DS]

Release The Hounds! on February 12, 2007 at 12:24 am

Debbie,
This is a disgrace. You’ve tried to reason with Hannity and his producer to no avail. They refused to respond to you.
Take my advice and sue Hannity, his producer, Fox News, and News Corp. Your name and reputation is at stake here.
Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes should also be contacted as well. Let all parties know that you will contact H&C’s sponsor Pacific Life corporate office 800-800-7646) and let them know that you refuse to do business with them. See how fast Fox responds.

Fox on February 14, 2007 at 2:23 am

Representing someone else’s work as their own may be fraud or unfair competition by Fox? Can this be brought before the FTC or FCC? Fraud and unfair competition could be grounds to strip Fox of broadcasting licenses?
Russia may keep files on plagiarism by professors. Speculation on this hypothesis is considered at the link at my name.

Old Atlantic on February 23, 2007 at 11:51 am

For the record, I believe Steyn is from New Zealand (not England).

bleechers on April 25, 2007 at 6:48 pm

Fox news is a stalinist organization. Any criticism of them gets you black balled. It happened to debbie and it happened to michael savage. Sean vannity has no personality, is a big bor and should be no where near a micraphone. The queer is coming out with a book and there printing almost two million copies. My god this country has some real ignorant people in it. They all make me want to puke.

tyler on February 17, 2010 at 7:26 pm

Thanks for all of your hard work on this site. Debby really likes setting aside time for investigation and it’s really easy to see why. We all notice all concerning the lively method you render priceless information by means of this web site and therefore increase participation from people on this idea and our own girl is understanding a whole lot. Have fun with the rest of the new year. You are always conducting a dazzling job.
