“Jimmy @Acosta sorry your precious feelings are hurt & that people see through your lying bullshit for what it is. FAKE NEWS,” Hannity wrote on Twitter.
Hannity’s tweet was an apparent response to an earlier tweet in which Acosta accused the Fox News host of being “a propagandist for profit” and “injecting poison into the nation’s political bloodstream.”
“Hannity is a propagandist for profit, peddling lies every night. He says he’s just a talk show host, not a journalist,” Acosta wrote. “But he’s injecting poison into the nation’s political bloodstream warping public attitudes about the press. I’m confident in the long run the truth will prevail.”
