Sean Hannity has done everything in his power to help elect Roy Moore as the next Senator from Alabama, including completely trashing his accusers publicly each night on his Fox News broadcasts.
So when Hannity’s talent bookers approached Gloria Thacker Deason, one of the many women who claim that Moore pursued them when they were teenagers (and he was a 30 something lawyer), her attorney Paula Cobia knew just how to respond.
Deason was just 18 when she started dating Moore, but her accounts of her dates with the Senate hopeful include the details of the Mateus Rose´ wine that he plied her with. Since the legal drinking age in Alabama at the time was 19, that amounts to enabling under-age drinking, as any lawyer should have surely known.
Ms. Cobia had her client’s best interests at heart when she penned her brilliant and incisive reply to Hannity’s booker.
After thanking the booker for the invitation, she asked that a message be passed along to Sean Hannity.
“Please tell Sean Hannity that I would never submit a survivor of abuse to the inevitable on-camera bullying and persecution by him, Mr. Hannity chose to believe and support immediately after learning about the numerous accusations against him describing sexual assault, child molestation, and harassment.”
“Mr. Hannity has belitled, defamed and engaged in an on-air intimidation campaign against the victims of Mr. Moore. He is totally uninterested in discovering the truth. He gave Mr. Moore a lazy, softball interview which his own panel did not find credible In fact, the panel mocked Mr. Moore over his inconsistencies and lies. It is laughable top assume that Mr. Hannity is capable of conducting a fair and balanced interview. He is not known for journalistic integrity. He is merely seeking an opportunity to publicly attack and further defame Mr. Moore’s vulnerable victims. Well that’s not happening. Not on my watch.”
It certainly looks like Ms. Cobia has Sean Hannity’s number down pat. Hannity must think that everyone is so anxious to be on TV and have their 15 minutes of fame that they’ll abandon all reason and morality to do so. Fortunately, not everyone thinks like Sean Hannity.
