Hannity responded Monday, calling Schultz a "buffoon."

"I've had enough with NBC News. Over the past couple of weeks they spent countless segments attacking little old me," Hannity said before playing a clip form the "Ed Show." "Here is just one example of leftwing loudmouth, kind of a buffoon, Ed Schultz criticizing this show's coverage, of which I'm proud of, of the Bundy ranch standoff with the feds."

Hannity also suggested that some reporters at NBC are ashamed to work with Schultz.

"If I was a network exec at NBC news I might be ashamed of having this man work for me," Hannity said. "I wonder how Tom Brokaw, Brian Williams, and Matt Lauer feel about that guy that works for their news brand. Pretty unbelievable."

Hannity also slammed Al Sharpton, who recently criticized the Fox host for supporting Tea Party groups.

"Let's just stop for one little minute here and look at the guy right there, Al Sharpton, making his assertions," Hannity said, referencing reports that Sharpton was an FBI informant. "Mob rat, Al Sharpton? Maybe you should take a good, hard look in the mirror because a few weeks ago we got our hands on that little video right there. Young Al Sharpton seen, undercover footage, allegedly being offered to buy cocaine."
