A spokesperson for Fox News said that the network does not “condone any talent participating in campaign events,” calling hosts Sean Hannity and Jeanine Pirro’s appearances at President Donald Trump’s Monday night rally a “distraction.”
“FOX News does not condone any talent participating in campaign events,” Fox News spokesperson Carly Shanahan said in a statement to TPM. “We have an extraordinary team of journalists helming our coverage tonight and we are extremely proud of their work. This was an unfortunate distraction and has been addressed.”
She did not immediately add any clarification about how the network “addressed” the events, but Hannity tweeted soon after about his participation.
