In a seemingly drama that happened on air after Michael Cohen, was forced to reveal the name of a “publicly prominent individual” that he represented in the person of Fox News‘ Sean Hannity, anesteemed attorney and political commentator Alan Dershowitz attacked Hannity openly.
Dershowitz without skipping a beat took it to the embattled Fox News host for not disclosing his relationship with Michael Cohen, despite reporting on him for weeks.
“I really think you should have disclosed your relationship with Cohen,” Dershowitz said.
The statement was a humiliating moment for Hannity – to get called out for this glaring conflict of interest that any reporter would know undermines his or her journalistic ethics. Of course, the word “reporter” is used lightly when describing Hannity.
