Hannity has come under fire as of late for peddling a conspiracy theory about the death of Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich and continuing to do so even after Rich’s family asked him to stop.

On Tuesday, Fox News retracted a story about Rich from their own site. Hannity later maintained that he “retracted nothing.”
