Look, I know what you think of Sean Hannity and I am not saying you’re not right, but what I am saying is that, as you’ve probably figured out by now, I worked extensively in the TV business and I know lotsa stuff and this I do know. Bill O’Reilly is a creepy asshole in real life but Sean is a quiet, unassuming nice guy.
Oh, and also? I have it on excellent authority that Ryan Adams is a first rate stinker as well.
So when Ryan went on Twitter to condemn Sean with “Your entire soul is controlled by fear and by hate. Evolve little chicken man. See reality” , Sean’s response was to invite Ryan on to his Fox News program which Ryan promptly turned down. Now, I don’t know you but I know I would turn Sean down under similar circumstances. It’s like having a fight with a lion and the lion saying, “Hey, come into my cage and let’s discuss it”.
Hannity’s response on his show was a little more to the point: “Come on the program, stop being a wimp, he’s hiding behind his rock star makeup like a little gutless little coward that he is.”
Ryan is a pussy and a pussy who is past his prime as well, his 2011 Ashes And Fire was a complete dog and his solo show at Carnegie Hall, while not the disaster Conor was, was nothing special. And really, calling somebody a soulless terrorist ain’t gonna make you many friends whether or not Sean is one. I think Sean is a bit of a dick myself, but so what?
The correct response to Sean was as follows: “I will not go on to your show. What have I to gain by meeting you on your own ground? Rather, I will meet you in a different forum. On CNN or Meet The Press. Somewhere I might be able to actually speak without being shouted down and off the show. It seems to me, Sean, you are more then willing to give people a chance for a conversation with you on your show with your producers. I might be a rock star but I’m not that stupid.”
On the other hand, nobody wants to be in the business of defending Ryan Adams.
