Did Schlussel Smear Hannity?

By on 3.19.10 | 2:22PM

Regarding this morning's item on Sean Hannity's Freedom Concerts, it seems that much of Debbie Schlussel's report was very misleading. A knowledgeable source tells me: "The reason so little has been paid out from the charity is that the vast majority of the kids the money WILL go to are right now not in college.  When they turn 18 they will get the money for college.  But because these are the children of Iraq and Afghanistan vets, their kids are mostly not of college age yet."

As for Hannity's private plane, my source says "he pays for it himself," and adds that "he personally has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars of his own money to the Freedom Alliance."

I'm told Freedom Alliance will issue a statement on this today; I'll update this post with their statement as soon as I get it. UPDATE: Freedom Alliance's statement is here.
