Fox News host Bret Baier distanced himself from fellow network star Sean Hannity on Tuesday, drawing a clear distinction between his news program and the opinion side of the Fox News Channel.
“Sean Hannity’s show is not ‘Special Report,'” said Baier, referencing his own program. “The problem sometimes is that Fox gets painted with a broad brush.”
Baier made the remarks during a panel hosted by Washington Post political reporter Dan Balz. Despite the comment, Baier still praised “Hannity,” the network’s highest-rated show.
“I think Sean Hannity, for what — his opinion, he does an amazing job with bringing forward his thoughts on things, similar to an opinion page of a newspaper,” he said.
