Hannity Mum On Olbermann Waterboarding Challenge
May 4, 2009 at 5:27 AM (PT)
PREMIERE/CITADEL/FOX NEWS CHANNEL host SEAN HANNITY has yet to respond to MSNBC's KEITH OLBERMANN regarding the latter's offer of $1,000 per second for families of U.S. troops if HANNITY lives up to his offhand agreement two weeks ago to be waterboarded for charity.
HANNITY, joking with guest CHARLES GRODIN on his FOX NEWS CHANNEL show, said that he would agree to be subjected to the controversial practice (GRODIN asked, "Are you busy on SUNDAY?"), an offer jumped upon by OLBERMANN, who said he would double the offer if HANNITY admits that he fears for his life and that waterboarding is torture. OLBERMANN, a cable news rival of HANNITY's, is pressing the issue and repeated his offer several times this week.
