Sean Vanity Alert: Will Hannity Rip Off My Questions to Al-Husainy?; Hannity.com Bans Readers Over Plagiarism of Schlussel
By Debbie Schlussel
**** UPDATE #2: A reader informs me that nationally syndicated radio talk show host Michael Savage is the one who coined the name “Sean Vanity.” And, unlike Vanity, I give full credit. ****
**** UPDATE: Well, Hannity didn’t get a chance to rip me off more because Al-Husainy yelled and then hung up on Sean. That’s good. I hate to be a robbery victim, four days in a row. Three is enough. Hilarious that Hannity ended the segment with, “I report, you decide.” No, he didn’t report a thing. ****
Uh-oh. Plenty of readers are e-mailing me that Sean (Hannity) Vanity, Plagiarist Extraordinaire, is having Imam Husham Al-Husainy on his radio show in the 4:00 p.m. hour.
Damn! Why did I post that critique of Vanity’s weak interview with Al-Husainy last night and my 25 questions I would have asked him? You know for sure that Sean will rip them off from me. This site, after all, is the Official, Uncredited Hannity Show Prep Site. Taking bets from readers on how many of my questions for Al-Husainy Sean The Plagiarist Hannity will steal from me.
I will listen to see how much more he rips off from me. You can bet he will. Because without it, he’s got nothin’. It’s beyond hilarious that he calls himself “the right wing poster boy for what’s right and true in America.” Since when is theft & plagiarism “right and true”?
And Reader Paul tells me that the chat portion of his site, Hannity.com, has been erasing threads where plenty of my readers (a/k/a Sean Vanity’s former, now-disenchanted fans) are posting about how Sean ripped me off. All of those readers are getting banned for the reason of “Contempt of Host.” Yes, most thieves and plagiarists are, indeed, contemptful–not embarrassed–when they get caught.
Here’s what Paul writes:
THOUGHT YOU MIGHT GET A KICK OUT OF THIS (likely old news):
I searched Sean Hannity’s website looking for comments regarding the
obvious and noticed nothing. My assumption was they’re deleting any
So in an attempt to be objective I started a Thread called
Being I didn’t save it it said something along the lines of:
“I just signed up for this forum and noticed no postings about Debbie
Schlussel and her complaints against Sean? Curious if they’re being
removed or I’m simply missing them? It’d be interesting to hear Sean’s comments regarding the issue.”
ONE PERSON REPLIED AND THEY SAID SOMETHING ALONG THE LINES OF:
No one other then Debbies family and friends pay any attention to her.
I THEN REPLIED BACK:
Evidentally Sean does and he’s not a family member. Rush gives her
credit for her work. I’ll save you further embarassment by not mentioning others. Let’s stick to the Sean issue. Your reply was cute but flawed.
All within a half hour I checked back again and I couldn’t access the site. Check out the message I got:
You have been banned for the following reason:
contempt of host
Date the ban will be lifted: Never
