Who is this guy sean hannity--from Wikipedia

He worked as a general contractor, and volunteer talk show host at UC Santa Barbara in 1989. He later joined WVNN in Athens, Alabama, and shortly afterward, WGST in Atlanta. In 1996, he was hired by Fox and was accompanied by Alan Colmes when he received his show Hannity & Colmes. Leaving WGST, he worked at WABC in New York until 2013, where he was on air full-time. Since 2014, he has worked at WOR. After Colmes announced his departure in January 2008, he merged his Hannity & Colmes show into Hannity. Hannity has received several awards and honors, including an honorary degree from Liberty University. He has written three best-selling books: Let Freedom Ring: Winning the War of Liberty over Liberalism; Deliver Us from Evil: Defeating Terrorism, Despotism, and Liberalism; and Conservative Victory: Defeating Obama's Radical Agenda. Hannity has promoted falsehoods and conspiracy theories, such as casting doubt on Barack Obama's birthplace, promoting conspiracy theories about the murder of Seth Rich, and reporting false stories about Hillary Clinton's health. He was an early supporter of Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election. Since Trump's election, Hannity has often acted as a conduit for Trump's messaging, criticizing the media and attacking the special counsel inquiry. Some White House advisors have characterized Hannity as the "shadow" chief-of-staff.[4] According to Forbes, by 2018 Hannity had become one of the most-watched hosts in cable news and most-listened-to hosts in talk radio due to his close friendship and access to President Donald Trump.[5] Contents 1 Early life and education 2 Career 2.1 Television 2.2 Radio 2.3 Books 2.4 Movies 2.5 Freedom Concerts 2.6 Real estate holdings 3 Political commentary, controversies, and criticism 3.1 Birtherism 3.2 2016 presidential campaign 3.2.1 Candidacy of Donald Trump 3.2.2 Conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton 3.2.3 Murder of Seth Rich conspiracy theories 3.2.4 Claims about election fraud 3.3 WikiLeaks 3.4 Relationship with Donald Trump and Michael Cohen 3.5 Criticism of FBI, DOJ, and special counsel 3.6 Uranium One 3.7 Deep state 3.8 Comments on sexual harassment 3.9 LGBT rights 3.10 Immigration 3.11 Islam 3.12 Torture 3.13 Climate change 3.14 Death panels 3.15 Roy Moore comments and advertiser boycott 3.16 Jake Tapper
