Profile in Cowardice: Sean Hannity deleted all of his references to Julian Assange, WikiLeaks on Twitter

Mod: Orwellian cable news phony Sean Hannity apparently believes it is possible to change the present by destroying all records of the past. He's deleted Twitter references to his one time man-love object Julian Assange.
  
Sean Hannity seems to have deleted all references to Julian Assange, WikiLeaks on his Twitter (The Week.com link): In just two years, Fox News host Sean Hannity went from inviting Julian Assange to fill in for him on his radio show to scrubbing all references to the WikiLeaks founder from his Twitter stream.

Assange was arrested Thursday in London, where he's been living in the Ecuadorian embassy in order to avoid extradition to Sweden and then, he feared, the United States. Hannity told Assange in a 2017 interview that he believed "every word he says," because "nothing he has published has ever been false."

Over the years, Hannity devoted several positive tweets to Assange and WikiLeaks, but observant Twitter users like Matthias Reynolds discovered on Thursday they are all gone. Hannity does have one related tweet still up: A link to a story on his website about Assange's arrest.

The Washington Post's Aaron Blake argues this could all just be a coincidence, saying Hannity's cleansing of all things pro-Assange and WikiLeaks "appears to have taken place as part of a mass deletion — not in response to Assange's arrest today."

Tweets about Assange and WikiLeaks may have gotten the boot, but Hannity did elect to keep about eight million references to Jussie Smollett, Hillary Clinton's emails, and "collusion delusion."

  1. The big problem is that the dump only got elected by the wikileaks dumps. I doubt he wants to prosecute assange to the point where assange decides to let it rip - tell all to the public/press.

    So, looks like the solution is a pardon. Or an unfortunate event.

    1. Pardons are not going to help Assange. Pardons don't come into the picture until someone has worked their way through the process and found guilty. And the whole purpose of Assange is to make him sing to further implicate Trump. Trump can't make that information go away.

  3. Another news item is playing gout in Illinois 2019 it states that if a candidate does not produce or show his or hers completed tax forms then they are barred from running as a candidate for any office that voters in the great state of Illinois might vote for or against.

    1. A lot of Trump voters will be disenfranchised because they won’t be able to spell his name and write it in.

  4. The rats are leaving the sinking ship? Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Republican senators running for re-election next year should not couple their messaging to President Trump but rather run “independent” campaigns built around how they’ve helped their states. The Kentucky Republican, who is himself up for reelection, said senators’ races are big enough that they can escape the gravity of the presidential race and establish themselves on their own. Mr. McConnell also said Republicans must — and can — reverse disastrous losses in the suburbs that cost them their House majority in November’s elections.“There’s no good reason for your typical suburban resident to be frightened by this Republican Senate,” he told reporters in a briefing on policy and politics as the 100-day mark of the new Congress approaches.

  5. Poster 6:38 AM - there is serious doubt any (djt) supporter (trump-pet) can read or write maybe they should revert to pictures next to the candidates running in the republican arena of fools? Like they do in developing countries around the world in 2020?

  9. What delete, just making space. Sean Hannity continues to believe Julian Assange, and why not? Assange, a journalist, appears to be telling the truth.

  14. (djt) operates his own private air force of hot air balloons filled with his version of B.S. and what he says as the tRuTh, to which he launches daily or hourly to fill his cheap ego and pump up his pants? https://www.sfgate.com/news/article/In-Shake-Up-Trump-Seeks-Hard-Line-on-Immigration-13751728.php

  15. Lol, the law does not allow and we can not spend the money to bus illegals to sanctuary cities, say the Democrat Socialist.
    Why not? the illegals will end up in sanctuary cities anyway because of No Laws upheld in these cities, seems like a good solution for those seeking asylum.
