Hannity Lends a Hand

On reading of Jeanine Pirro‘s alleged fundraising travails in the Post Monday, Sean Hannity decided to get involved, and had Pirro as a guest on his ABC Radio Networks show yesterday:

HANNITY: Now let me ask you a question, OK? How much am I allowed to give to your campaign? Because I want to give the maximum.

PIRRO: Awwww. Thank you, Sean. Well, you know, because there’s a possible primary, it’s $4,200 a person for the, you know, the whole cycle. And that’s this year and next year. And certainly, you know, money is what we need to make sure that we can get our message out. I have been all over this state, Sean, and I am greeted with a great deal of enthusiasm, with energy, with people who say, “You know what? We need someone who’s going to listen to us!” I’m an upstate New Yorker, you know? When I was a kid, I worked in a dairy. And I really feel for upstate New York. It’s been ignored, and New York is not a doormat…

HANNITY:…Listen, I’m gonna have to run, but I want people to donate to your campaign. I read Fredric Dicker’s column, and you gotta, you know — I’m gonna give you a check for the maximum that I can give, and I really want other people — where is, how can people get in touch with you?

PIRRO: It’s JeaninePirro.com. It’s J-E-A-N-I-N-E — Pirro — P-I-R-R-O dot-com, and, Sean, thank you so much.

HANNITY: I’ll link that to my website, Hannity.com, because I’m gonna tell you right now, it is such a bunch of — I need people to get to know you. If they know you as well as I do, everybody’ll vote for you.

The liberal media-watcher that caught this exchange, Media Matters, seems to think it somehow demonstrates a bias of some sort over at Fox News.

But it’s also just the sort of thing Pirro needs. Though that promised link to Hannity’s home page doesn’t seem to be up yet.
