Jake Tapper calls out Sean Hannity's hypocrisy on sexual harassment after Hannity hosted Bill O'Reilly

Tapper: Hannity said “the left has this selective moral outrage” but “that very same Sean Hannity hosted sexual harasser Bill O'Reilly”

From the October 10 edition of CNN's The Lead with Jake Tapper:

JAKE TAPPER (HOST): Those who express outrage at one sexual harasser and not another because of the first harasser's political views, that is morally bankrupt. This was a point made interestingly enough by Fox News anchor Sean Hannity last night. Saying the left has this selective moral outrage. It's a cogent point, except that very same Sean Hannity hosted sexual harasser Bill O'Reilly on his show two weeks ago. O'Reilly, of course, fired from Fox News channel after an investigation into multiple allegations of sexual harassment, including multiple settlements. Look, this shouldn't be hard, and it shouldn't be partisan. It doesn't matter if it's Harvey Weinstein, or Donald Trump, or Roger Ailes, or Bill Cosby, or Bill O'Reilly, or Bill Clinton. These accusations are all worthy of reporting and outrage. 


O'Reilly and Hannity's continuing collaboration is a disaster for Fox

Hannity goes rogue, helping O'Reilly attack the women who reported him for sexual harassment and asking him to return to Fox

Fox News goes all in promoting Bill O’Reilly’s return to the network on Hannity
