Fox News doesn’t condone Hannity appearance with Trump

"By the way, all those people in the back are fake news", Hannity, who is not a journalist, said to cheers.

Hannity broadcast his show from the site of the rally Monday, where he exhorted viewers to vote Republican and echoed a Trump campaign theme seen on banners: "Promises made, promises kept". Fox News' Jeanine Pirro appeared onstage with the president as well, as did veteran talk radio host Rush Limbaugh.

"While we often hear that all politics is local, there's just no getting away from the fact that Trump's policies are on the ballot", said host Laura Ingraham on Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle" during her opening monologue, in which she focused on protecting and preserving America's and Americans' future.

Almost 40 percent of voters cast their ballots to express opposition to the president, according to AP VoteCast, a national survey of the electorate, while about 25 percent said they voted to express support for Trump.

The network had tried earlier on Monday to establish distance between Hannity and Trump's campaign, which had billed Hannity as a "special guest" at the rally.

Ironically, Hannity had promised on Monday morning that he would only be interviewing Trump at the Missouri rally, writing, "I will not be on stage campaigning with the President".

Hannity was rebuked by Fox in 2010 when it found that the Tea Party had advertised Hannity would be appearing at one of its fundraising rallies, where participants could pay a premium for seats near the set where Hannity was broadcasting his program.

Cubs second baseman Javier Baez and right fielder Jason Heyward were also finalists at their positions but didn't win the award. First baseman Matt Olson and third baseman Matt Chapman were recognized for the Athletics, and second baseman D.J.

This is Mr. Trump's 11th rally in six days, and his second in Missouri. "They've been with us from the beginning".

"To be clear, I was not referring to my journalist colleagues at FOX News in those remarks".

Monday's rally appearance was not shown on Fox News Channel, but was aired on C-SPAN. A Fox spokeswoman said she didn't know how that impression had been created.

Some surprised journalists at other news organizations didn't hesitate to make their feelings known on social media.

Hannity in 2016 appeared in a promotional video for the Trump campaign, but Fox News at the time issued a statement saying that executives had not been aware of it, noting he would not appear in any more through the remainder of the election.

"People throughout the company think a new line was crossed", one senior Fox News employee told CNN Business, one of a half-dozen Fox employees who spoke anonymously to the rival network.
