In a Twitter war of words, Fox News’ host Sean Hannity called out The New York Times as “fake news” on Saturday after it published a report claiming that he advises President Trump.

According to the report, “Presidents always deploy surrogates to appear on television to spout their talking points, but Mr. Trump has expanded on that by developing relationships with sympathetic media figures like Mr. Hannity who also serve as advisers. Mr. Hannity, the Fox News host, defends Mr. Trump’s most controversial behavior in public, but privately, according to people close to Mr. Trump, he urges the president not to get distracted, and advises him to focus on keeping pledges like repealing the Affordable Care Act.”

Hannity angrily tweeted at the Times, recalling that it “colluded with [Hillary Clinton] in 2016” and calling its story “total fake news speculation about me.”

Noting that his conversations should be private and that he has never talked to The New York Times, Hannity went on to ask, “Was I surveilled and unmasked by u/NSA?”

Confused about why he would be angry, one of the authors of the article, Times reporter Maggie Haberman responded to Hannity by tweeting that several people close to the president cited him as an adviser.

Apparently, not a fan of the newspaper, Hannity stated that he would never talk to the Times, adding that Trump knows “you are FAKE NEWS and I doubt he talks to [you] either.”

The other author of the piece, reporter Glenn Thrush responded to Hannity’s tweets as well, claiming, “I was once sitting with a Republican elected official preparing for an interview when he got an email from [you] giving him political advice.”

It was reported by The Hill that Trump gave Haberman and Thrush an exclusive interview earlier this month in the Oval Office.
