White House Playboy reporter Brian Karem said Friday that Fox News host Sean Hannity doesn’t have the journalistic ability to work at a community newspaper, after Hannity blamed Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., for inciting Thursday's shooting at Maryland newspaper. “Sean Hannity doesn’t have the ability to work at a community newspaper. He doesn’t have the talent for it, he doesn’t have the temerity for it,” Karem told CNN. “His display on television shows you exactly what he’s made of.”
“[Hannity] couldn’t make it in a community journalism newsroom,” said Karem, who knew four of the five people killed in Thursday’s shooting. “So he can kiss my big fat ‘ask me no more questions I’ll tell you know more lies.’”
Hannity responded Thursday night to the shooting at the local Annapolis newspaper the Capital Gazette where five people were killed, claiming that Waters and former President Barack Obama promoted this type of violent behavior by calling for people to confront those they disagree with.
