Sean Hannity Just Retweeted A Fake Account, But Media Matters Has The Receipts

Sean Hannity Just Retweeted A Fake Account, But Media Matters Has The Receipts
Updated 6 months ago

Angelo Carusone is president of Media Matters, the non-profit research and information site dedicated to monitoring misinformation in the U.S. media. 

Carusone recently called out Sean Hannity for retweeting an account posing as... Angelo Carusone.

It all started with Hannity's coverage of the Roy Moore scandal. Four women have come forward saying they were pursued by Moore in the 1980s while in their teens (the youngest 14, the oldest 18) and he was in his mid-30s. Hannity angered many of his listeners when he commented that the "relationships" were consensual. Hannity did clarify his statement, saying, “That one line was absolutely wrong. I misspoke.” He went on to explain he was speaking of the older girls, 17 and 18, but not the 14-year-old. The age of consent in Alabama is 16.  

Things didn't stop there. As the show continued, Hannity questioned the authenticity of women coming forward with their stories by asking Mercedes Colwin, a Fox News legal analyst:

Now, I know, and this goes back to what you said, do people do it for money? Do people do it for political reasons? Is that more common than people would think?

Things went from bad to worse, and advertisers began listening to consumers and pulling advertising. 

Led by Carusone, Media Matters began contacting sponsors of Hannity's show:

And now, it's an all-out Twitter war:

Hannity also called for his supporters to boycott Keurig:

Carusone hit back with a few tweets of his own:

And then somehow the actor James Woods got involved:

In the meantime, four women are standing by their allegations that Roy Moore pursued them when they were in their teens and he was in his 30s, but, you know, keep fighting amongst yourselves over coffee, guys.
