Fox's Sean Hannity forced to change phone number

Reported by Chrish - August 12, 2005

Personally we at News Hounds don't condone the publishing of private contact information of people with whom we disagree or just plain loathe. We generally leave such behavior to radical right-wingers who use harrassment as a tactic to intimidate and/or frighten.

Apparently some on the left are beginning to think they have to fight fire with fire, what's good for the goose, eye for an eye, etc. etc.. Thanks to gmailer Jared S. for sending on this piece, where Sean Hannity gets a taste of nastiness served up to him for a change.

FOX UNPLUGGED
Indie rockers force Hannity to change number
By Mike Miliard

A few weeks ago, we introduced you to Brooklyn indie agit-popsters Kids Against Combs, who’d just finished an album that used the private phone number of Fox News loudmouth Sean Hannity as its title.

Sean Hannity (631) 673-8003 was set to be released on July 21 by 10-34 Records. But, according to a press release sent out last week by the band, Kids Against Combs and 10-34 were issued papers on July 15 from Hannity’s attorneys, "threatening to sue both parties if they proceeded with releasing an album named after Hannity’s home phone number and containing the political pundit’s home address in the CD’s liner notes." (The digits, meanwhile, are now disconnected; "changed to an unlisted number," says the recording.)

Read the rest.

Is this wrong? We report, you decide.
