Bill Hemmer announced the sad news this morning on ”America’s Newsroom,” which then aired a tribute package from Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity, his former co-host on ”Hannity & Colmes.” …

Although I didn’t agree with his politics, he didn’t stoop to the level of many of the Libs on FoxNews. RIP Mr Colmes.

You have no idea if he did or didn’t. Please be respectful and don’t say stupid things.

Disagreed with almost everything he said, but liked him anyway.

He brought a civility to debate that the left sorely needs right now. Alan Colmes leaves big shoes to fill.

R.I.P.

Never was a fan but he had some decency if not always the best arguments.
Most importantly, at this time, I express sympathy to his loving family.

May God have mercy on them all.

Holy cow.

That’s really sad. Only 66 too.

Seems like I haven’t seen him on TV in ages.

Totally agree, The Left could learn from his approach, I don't remember him appearing to be full of hate, like today's leftist's.

I’m sorry for his family.
I must admit though, after his comments about Mitt Romney’s dead child I swore I would never watch him again. And I never did.

Very sad news. He was a liberal, but seemingly a nice one.
