Hannity Snaps on NYT Columnist After Saying Fox Host Doesn’t Deserve William F. Buckley Award

Fox News host Sean Hannity has been called a bully by some, and a defender of conservatism by others, there’s one thing everyone can agree on: he speaks his mind, and he goes after his “enemies” – perceived, or not.

Incidentally, Hannity was back fighting against CNN on Friday morning, retweeting:
