BREAKING: Hannity and Acosta Clash Over His New Book

On Friday, Fox News host Sean Hannity and CNN correspondent Jim Acosta traded barbs on social media, leading to a heated exchange.

Acosta started things off by claiming to have heard Hannity “is taking some shots at me over my book,” while also alleging to have offered the Fox News host the chance to interview him regarding his recently released book, which he said was declined.

Hannity took to social media to reply, claiming representatives for Acosta “have BEEN BEGGING” to have the CNN employee appear on the program, stating, “Sorry, I won’t subject my audience to conspiracy theory fake news.”

“Go hawk that garbage on the lowest rated cable channel [you] work for,” added Hannity.

As always, Acosta’s remarks drew criticism from social media commenters, many of who thanked Hannity for sparing them having to listen to Acosta advertise his book.
