Skip to comments.Hannity goes for Brokeback (Hannity Has a Dating Service?)
Posted on 11/28/2006 10:38:15 AM PST by shrinkermd
HAVE I EVER wondered what a wonderful world it would be if only my fans could get together, talk about how great I am and fall in love over their joint love for me? Sure, but unlike Fox News commentator Sean Hannity, I haven't done anything about it. At Hannity.com, in addition to enjoying the book club (Newt Gingrich, Jeff Foxworthy), song club (Charlie Daniels Band, Martina McBride), photos (Hannity's Insanity in Phoenix) and comic books ("Liberality for All" is set in 2021 and has a bionic Hannity, G. Gordon Liddy, Oliver North and a man born on Sept. 11, 2001, fighting to save a U.S. controlled by the U.N., including Ambassador Osama bin Laden), visitors can log on to Hannidate.
Conservatives need late-night, out-of-town hookups just as much as liberals. They also, it seems, need some hot man-on-man action. If you pull down the menu on Hannidate, you can select "I am a male, seeking a male." This was surprising because not even eHarmony allows same-sex pairings. Stranger still for a Fox News commentator's site, you can select ZIP Codes in Beverly Hills, Provincetown and San Francisco.

Yes. Ruth's is over priced but it's good.
That's not all the rubber has met, apparently.
I wish there was a location closer to me.
At least we now know how he selects his, "Man in the street," for interviews.
The one in Cleveland closed, leaving the closest one in Columbus, about 2 and half hours away.
Haven't listened. What has he said about it?
I don't know if he retains a programmer, but all that book revenue should be good for something besides getting a groupie like "Carpet Kitten".
It was further down in the LA Times Article
"Figuring this was an embarrassing oversight by the Hannity.com administrator who must have bought the dating service software from some liberal company, I immediately contacted Hannity, hoping he'd panic and cry and possibly use his bionic powers. But it turns out Hannity was well aware of the gay Hannidate feature and is fine with it. "Hannidate is open to everyone," he informed me. "Even lonely L.A. Times reporters." He may be soft on gays, but Hannity can still hit a lonely, empty-desked, downsizing liberal newspaper where it hurts."
Well, she did.
Nearest one to me is in Cary, NC, about 1-1/2 hours from me.
Holy cow, it appears I lost my bet in post #2.
Looks like more a result of Hannity's careless greed than any pro-gay agenda. It's more proof to me that Hannity's not real bright. (OTOH, he's a match for colmes and most lefties)
Good point. I heard that interview. Hewitt showed the creep for what he is. For some reason, libs like playing "gotcha" with conservatives. I can't believe Hannity chose this option. I agree with others it was prob a case of outsourcing to someone who used a set menu.
Because during the Ask Dr. Hannity segment of his show he'd get singles bemoaning their lonely hearts and he figured since he had so many millions of fans of like mind he'd create a place on his forum for them to connect. I didn't realize it had morphed into a dating site, but hey, it doesn't surprise me. But being such a supposedly morality driven guy I didn't realize he was so gay friendly. Wonder if he's softening up on abortion too.
You still may be right and he will close the homosexual dating option; however, only under duress. I still say the problem here is one of good manners and taste; hence, he has made his Web site "tacky" by trying to trade on something better sourced elsewhere.
True. Perfect for expense accounts.
Conservatives do not approve of a gay lifestyle.
He never mentions the threat to our society that homosexuality does.
"For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some have been led astray from the faith in their greed, and have pierced themselves through with many sorrows."

Too bad FR has no search engine for dating purposes...
It does, but we only invite the good looking people...:-)
Who cares? What difference does it make?
A night of brown meat all the way around.
OK, I'll stop...;^)
He also labeled those pursuing the story as hypocrites.
Just curious, what other American radio talk shows have you heard?
I'm way more upset at him over holding a fundraiser for Arnold Schwartzenkennedy in October!!!
I'm sure Hannity bought some online dating server software and had his admin, a contractor, or his ISP (however he works this) set it up for him. Unfortunately, they apparently didn't configure it correctly for his needs.
Now, now, he claims to be libertarian, not gay-friendly, on the issue. How that is compatiable with his Christian beliefs is anyone's guess.
But, then again, he has openly stated he wouldn't hesitate to vote for Rudolph Gulliani, who is pro-abortion and in favor of the homosexual agenda. Thank God, Ann Coulter was H&C recently when he was discussing a Gulliani candidacy and stated she wouldn't even consider voting for Gulliani.
He's right about the second part. They are hypocrites.
I agree,but what was he thinking in the first place? This is getting ridiculous.
did he actually say he was a libertarian?
Sometimes I think he and Rush took the election results a little too personally, as if it offended them that they could not deliver the votes the way they are trumped up as being able to do so.
I do appreciate all Sean did in the last presidential election, but his radio show . . . no. If others find it interesting, fine. I think it's just Rush Lite and Rush Rehash.
But I tune in occasionally and find . . . car giveaways? What's up with that?
If you're correct, fronting a commercial dating service is what's stupid b/c he apparently is giving the impression that his service hooks you up with like-minded Hannity fans, not the general universe of people to be met at match.com or wherever.
I signed up for Hannidate many moons ago, and was amazed at how many spam services (I'm Inga looking for American husband) sent me e-mails through it.
And after the hot action, a nice cuddle while reading Hannity's book to each other!
I never heard Dr. Keyes' radio program. He did have a program on MSNBC for a short time that I thought was pretty good. I remember sending an e-mail and telling him/them just that.
If you get a chance, you might be interested in the line up on Townhall.com. The guys there are pretty sharp--Dennis Prager and Michael Medved being my favorites but I also like Bennett and Hewitt and even Gallagher in small doses.
Oy! The guy's basically a simpleton. I couldn't understand his appeal until a woman here explained it to me. But I didn't think women watched political slugfest shows.
I used to listen to Rush through WLS-AM Chicago's website.
I haven't done so recently since I'm normally out at lunch and can catch him in my car on the way.
When you go to register, it asks for your marital status. If you answer married or separated, you get an e-mail telling you that the service is for single and divorced people only.
Don't bother replying to the e-mail. The mail box is full and has been for several weeks.

The issue now, and it explains the direction FOX has been going, is that a Foreign National has controlling stock in FOX, not Murdock.
Fox is now turning into a lobby for the MSM.
I like Hannity, but he has lost his edge, not ruthless enough.
But only if you each buy your own copy! No sharing!
It'll be gone, and he'll show pretty clear embarrassment and apologize. Then he'll remark about how homosexuality is so commonplace now that dating software has it as a default option.
Hannity has moved from the conservative radio show host to the the money-whore stage of his career, what with the books, the tours, the GM promotion and now this ridiculous dating service, anything Hannity is $'s FOR Hannity. Of course, the "Mrs." will peal off half of that when she finds he's been using the service himself.
The entertainment bell curve will show that his popularity (and credibility) will begin to nosedive soon.
Oh, don't get me started on Flipper. She and "Dr. Hannity" were the last straws for me listening to that show.
