Sean Hannity: Yes, I Talked To George Zimmerman

Conservative talk jock Sean Hannity confirmed Tuesday night on his Fox News show that he spoke recently by phone with George Zimmerman, the Florida man accused of killing unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin in an incident that set off a national firestorm.

Earlier in the day, two lawyers who had been representing Zimmerman said they lost contact with their client and heard rumors that he had been talking to the Fox host.

Hannity acknowledged he’s been in contact with Zimmerman but agreed to not report on their conversation.
