And he’s calling again for Hannity to invite him for a chat on the air.
“I’m very worried that the hostility whipped up by Trump and some in conservative media will result in somebody getting hurt,” Acosta tweeted. “We should not treat our fellow Americans this way.”
Hannity, however, wasn’t having it.
“The people of this country, they’re screaming at you for a reason,” Hannity said on his show. “They don’t like your unfair, abusively bias treatment of the president of the United States.”
Acosta replied on Twitter:
Hannity is a propagandist for profit, peddling lies every night. He says he’s just a talk show host, not a journalist. But he’s injecting poison into the nation’s political bloodstream warping public attitudes about the press. I’m confident in the long run the truth will prevail.

That’s when Avenatti stepped in:
Hey @seanhannity – stop playing whiffle ball with the WH’s hand picked guests and climb in the hardball box with some guests that might actually punch back. Taking shots at @cnn and @Acosta proves nothing. Let’s go big boy – time to prove you are not a …. #Basta https://t.co/1Xw42iyVDM

Avenatti has been angling for an appearance on Hannity’s Fox News program, no doubt knowing that Trump is a frequent viewer. He’s also called for Hannity to debate him live for a full hour.
Hannity hasn’t bitten:
