Is Sean Hannity a Journalist? Role of TV Hosts Is Key in Fox News Lawsuit.

From a Washington Post story by Jeremy Barr headlined “Is Sean Hannity a journalist? Role of hosts is key in Fox News lawsuit.”:

Sean Hannity does not consider himself a journalist. “I’m a member of the press,” he said on his Fox News show last year, “but I don’t claim to be a journalist.”

His boss, however, feels differently. “Ultimately, they’re journalists,” Fox Corp chief executive Lachlan Murdoch said of Hannity and his fellow prime-time opinion hosts in a deposition in December. “They report a strong opinion.”
