Very Fake News: Juan Williams Slams CNN Report Claiming Sean Hannity ‘Pulled Gun’ on Him After ‘Argument’

Any news coming out of Fake News Station CNN is not to be trusted. They have proved that to the American people time and time again, and this time is no different.

Now, in attempt to even out the playing field, the network is working hard to smear Fox News’ Sean Hannity’s reputation by completely fabricating a story about him ‘pointing a gun at liberal Fox News contributor Juan Williams.’

No, this isn’t joke… although it does seems far fetched.

Dylan Byers, one of the media writers at CNN who works for media industry defender Brian Stelter, printed a story on Thursday alleging:

“Last year, after ending one of his many spirited on-air arguments with liberal contributor Juan Williams, Hannity pulled out a gun and pointed it directly at Williams.” Byers cited “three sources with knowledge of the incident” to make the claim.

“He even turned on the laser sight, causing a red dot to bob around on Williams’ body,” Byers wrote, adding in parentheses: “Hannity was just showing off, the sources said, but the unforeseen off-camera antic clearly disturbed Williams and others on set.”

Byers then strangely added in the next paragraph that the alleged incident was investigated, and it was determined that there was no wrongdoing.

“For the record: Hannity’s colleagues brought the Williams incident to the attention of Fox News executives, though it’s not clear whether anything came of it,” Byers wrote. “The sources said it went to Bill Shine, the network’s co-president and longtime Fox News executive, who is Hannity’s longtime friend and a former producer. A Fox News spokesperson said the incident was referred to the legal and human resources departments.”

Byers dug for quotes from Fox News, and Hannity and Williams themselves. Yet, much to his dismay, all of them stated that the incident is being way overblown by CNN.

“Sean Hannity has been trained in firearm safety since he was 11 years old and has a license to carry a gun in five states, including New York,” Fox News said in its statement. “The situation was thoroughly investigated and it was found that no one was put in any danger.”

Hannity blasted CNN’s interpretation of events as “outright false reporting.”

“While discussing the issue of firearms, I showed my good friend Juan Williams my unloaded firearm in a professional and safe manner for educational purposes only,” Hannity said. “Every precautionary procedure that I have been trained in since the age of 11 was followed. I’ve had a conceal carry permit in five states for all of my adult life. Any other interpretation of this is outright false reporting.”

The kicker? Williams himself himself said the incident is being blown way out of proportion.

“This incident is being sensationalized — everything was under total control throughout and I never felt like I was put in harm’s way,” Williams said, according to the CNN report. “It was clear that Sean put my safety and security above all else and we continue to be great friends.”

Williams even took to Twitter to defend Hannity:

In response to Williams’ Tweets, Hannity accepted:



Do you honestly think that if Williams really had a problem with Hannity, he would stand up for him in that manner?

Probably not.

Additionally, Byers continued in his story by alleging that Hannity’s recent studies of Mixed Martial Arts —  means he is “spoiling for a fight.”


“Off camera, he has become an avid student of Mixed Martial Arts,” Byers wrote. “He has a brown belt in Karate. He even has a personal sensei (martial arts teacher) who travels with him. Last year, Hannity and his sensei paid a visit to UFC champion Chuck Liddell to learn some new techniques. The visit was featured as a segment on Hannity’s show, which provides some insight into his passion for the hobby.”

But Hannity debunked Byers’ immediately after:



So, naturally, according to CNN — the network President Donald Trump has called “very fake news” — learning self defense and properly and safely handling a firearm in a way that makes nobody feel unsafe is now somehow a bad thing.

Even though both of the subjects of his story have defended the incident,Byers is avidly standing by his bizarre report.

Hannity responded:


And then Hannity delivered one last fatal blow:


What a LOSER Byers is!
