Quiz: Was Hannity talking about Michael Cohen or Hillary Clinton?

Stormy Daniels enters federal court in the Manhattan borough of New York City New York U.S Quiz: Was Hannity talking about Michael Cohen or Hillary Clinton?

Yes, Cohen is "the Atticus Finch of getting women to shut up about affairs - allegedly", he said, but if you listen to Hannity, it's clear "this isn't some tawdry woman-silencing hush deal".

That's the refrain from Sean Hannity, after lawyers for President Donald Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, revealed in court on Monday that the Fox News host is one of only three clients that Cohen represented this year and last.

Trump allies say Hannity is one of just a handful of people who can speak candidly with the president and debate him on issues as an equal.

But Hannity, an entertainer at heart, blurs the lines all the time - for example by calling his show "real news" and by asserting that he has anonymous sources. Cohen was appearing in a Manhattan courtroom just days after the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided both his home and office as part of their criminal probe. Hannity has regularly defended Cohen amid his mounting legal conflicts without disclosing their relationship.

"Hannity doesn't believe his friendship with Cohen rose to that level", Kurtz said of Hannity's choice to neither disclose the relationship nor recuse himself from reporting on Cohen.

"Hannity's producers are working to contact him", Smith continued.

So what it looks like, of course, is that Cohen could have similarly helped Hannity silence a woman who might have told an embarrassing story. I have occasionally had brief discussions with him about legal questions about which I wanted his input and perspective. Several commentators taking a journalism-is-as-journalism-does tack have used Hannity's current quandary as an opportunity to restate ethical boundaries and to take Fox News to task.
