In an odd in-family Murdoch battle, a Wall Street Journal editor dubbed Sean Hannity “Fox News’ dumbest anchor,” which led to a series of Tweets by Hannity insulting that editor including the choice term “dumbass” and even a little harsher. (That’s a warning, by the way, if you want to look away.)

Bret Stephens of the WSJ posted this:

Hannity sent out a string of Tweets questioning the WSJ and the Republican Party for allowing Donald Trump’s rise. (He supports Trump, by the way.) Here’s a sampling:

Later, Stephens followed up with this:

And this led to Hannity’s retort:

Hannity, who was an Atlanta radio host on 640/WGST-AM before he joined Fox News two decades ago, is heard locally on News 95.5 and AM 750 WSB and on Fox News nightly at 10 pm.
