Fox News star and talk-radio host Sean Hannity on Wednesday offered a guest-hosting radio gig to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. After the notorious leaks publisher indicated on Twitter that he’d like to start a podcast or radio show, Hannity replied, “If you would like to fill in for me one day I am on over 550 stations and 14 plus million listeners.” Assange later told CNN that is taking the offer seriously. “I’m looking into it,” he said. “My physical circumstances means that nothing is easy.”
Assange is currently holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. His relationship with Hannity hasn’t always been so cozy: long before Assange and WikiLeaks became overtly anti-Clinton during the 2016 election, the Fox News host said Assange was “waging war against the U.S.” and putting American lives in “jeopardy” by publishing classified diplomatic cables. Hannity also wondered on-air why the Obama administration had not “arrested” Assange for his actions. Read more at CNN.
