SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Yesterday, a CNN reporter and crew in London -- well, they were accused of creating fake news after they were filmed seemingly staging a group of anti-terror Muslim demonstrators behind a camera shot in order to create a pro-Muslim narrative. Now, CNN, they're vehemently denying this saying what you can obviously see, saying, quote, "staging." Well the network is calling the story nonsense. They told FoxNews.com "This story is nonsense. The group of demonstrators that was at the police cordon was being allowed through by officers so they could show their signs to the gathered media. The CNN crew along with other media present simply filmed them doing so." OK, you really believe that?
