CNN Anchor Mocks Hannity: ‘I’m John Berman and Michael Cohen Is Not My Attorney’
It’s going to be that kind of day.
Less than 24 hours after it was revealed that pro-Trump Fox News host was the mysterious third client of Trump attorney Michael Cohen, CNN anchor John Berman began his program with a snarky reference to the blockbuster news.
“Good morning, everyone,” the host said. “I’m John Berman, and Michael Cohen is not my attorney.”
He continued, “We have new developments in the bizarre legal linkage between the investigation surrounding the president and Fox News don’t-call-him-a-journalist-except-sometimes Sean Hannity.”
Following Cohen’s outing of Hannity as a client, journalists and media figures have hit both the conservative commentator and Fox News over Hannity not disclosing that information as he railed against the FBI’s raid against Cohen last week, stating that this failure to disclose constitutes a serious breach of journalistic ethics. Hannity even took heat on his own program last night when famed attorney Alan Dershowitz called out the Fox News host for not publicly disclosing his relationship with Cohen.
