Radio host and Fox News personality Sean Hannity recently spoke on the air with an Obamacare operator. Apparently O-care operators speaking about their jobs to outside individuals is a no-no, because this particular operator told Hannity today that she had been fired. #MostTransparentAdministrationEver

Hannity has since offered to pay the operator a year’s salary, which is reportedly $26,000, even though she had only been working at that job since last month.

Hannity received a lot of Twitter applause for the classy move:

Of course, there are those, such as MSNBC’s Alex Wagner, who are blaming Hannity:

She of course forgot to mention a large part of the story.

Well done, Sean!

  • cmerlo1

    So, basically she was fired for bringing some transparency to ‘the most transparent administration in history’. Noted.

    • QueenB ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Exactly. She was fired for telling the truth. As we found out with that twitter guy this week, it’s the only way to get fired in this administration.

    • V the K

      She was actually fired by the private contractor who was running the phone center in Panama City Florida. The company running the site should be named and shamed.

      • twistedgenius

        Company is General Dynamics.

      • twistedgenius

        They bought out the old Sally Mae building here, employ about 1500-1600. I have a few friends that got jobs there, one has quit cause said it is horrible there.. They treat you worse than a prisoner. Another friend (liberal) loves it there.. go figure.. But she voted for Obama, bless her poor soul. (though her looks makes up for her stupidity).
        Funny thing about it.. They are located at the end of the railroad tracks..

        • Jeremy

          They are located at the end of the railroad tracks.
          How fitting for this worthless company.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            Great for the deliveries of BS needed for operations, though…

        • Jason Call

          They may be typical of a prevailing industry model. Are they called phone farms? All sorts of companies outsource telephone customer service to them. One such company in an Eastern Idaho town is well-known locally for its Gulag atmosphere and prodigious entry-level employee turnover. It apparently pays a yearly rate to the newspaper for the help-wanted ad, and seemingly everyone or their next of kin once worked there for two weeks, give or take.

        • IMPEACH_BOBO

          Now thats funny, they are at the end of the railroad tracks, tell them all to look out for that burning train called BOBOcare coming their way !!!! Hannity is a good guy, I think he feels a little guity for not telling this young bIack lady when he first got her on the phone that he was Hannity from FOX NEWS & that her answers to his questions would be on his show !! I heard the whole phone call the night Hannity played it & this young bIack lady was just being honest about what was going on with this POS site of BOBOcare !!!!

          Good for her & with Hannity giving her a years salary because she was fired for ribbing BOBOcare by BOBO’s minions !! She should look at it this way, when that burning train comes down to the end of the track she won’t have to be anywheres near this disaster of a train wreck when it hits !!!

    Class act Sean. Now that she no longer works for them, bring her on and air all of the dirty laundry.

    • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

      Tonight, he said on the radio this afternoon. He’s also helping her find another job.

      • Canadian in USA ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        Now, THAT is a class act.

      • Jeremy

        Yeah his producer helped set up an email so people can send in job offers for her.

  • sybilll

    I listened to it live, and all she did was tell the truth. Oh yea, he is also “gifting” the 26K to her, so it is tax free. Good for Sean.

    • TugboatPhil ✓Mate

      Same here. She seemed very respectful but didn’t seem to have much information for someone calling about Obamacare. I don’t think that was a coincidence. I believe that like most good scams, callers will be directed to websites, which will direct them to call or write. Anything to keep people from finding out what they’ll have to pay.

      • Jeremy

        agreed.I could tell she was very nice and friendly and it really angers me that the company fired her for doing her job.

        • nc ✓s & balances

          I also heard the live calls. Hannity always identified himself right away and told them they were on the radio, and got their consent. By the second day, the word went out “Don’t give any info to Hannity.”

          • Jeremy

            Yep.I heard the call the next day and the woman wouldn’t talk to him at all so,yeah a memo definitely went out.

    • rch926

      Tax free to an individual? No its not…its just like you neighbor writing you a check. He gets no write off from that…..get your head out

      • Doug Ferreri

        Actually it is tax free to her. You are right he gets no write off

      • Michael T. Wolke

        Your use of a harsh tone and suggestion that Sybill’s head is in an inappropriate place only make mistakes in your comment prove your lack of understanding her comment, your understanding of the IRS Gift Tax code and that you’re insecure enough to have to use such crude comment.

        1} The “tax free” comment is not about Sean receiving a tax credit for this action. It is a reference to the IRS Gift Tax Code that states the lady and her son are the recipients of the gift and do not have to pay taxes.

        2} Please read the following, go look in the mirror and wonder if you should make a crude comment to the person in the mirror or should have the courage to correct your poor inference to Sybill: the money received.

        3} I’m pretty sure where you believe Sybill’s head needs to be gotten out of; however, it seems that your head is in the wrong place or has yet to have been in any of the right places. You misunderstood the comment, do not know the IRS gift laws and must feel some superior position to make a crude comment.

  • JeffWRidge

    Of course, it’s Hannity’s fault. After all, he talked to her and Freedom of Speech is no longer respected by our government. It’s not like people should blame Obama for creating an atmosphere where government employees have to fear for their jobs if they speak to the wrong people.

  • seemorejustice

    She wasn’t fired for taking Sean’s phone call. She was fired for being HONEST! What does that tell you about those in charge of this asinine law?!

    • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

      She was fired for speaking freely, it is called the 1st Amendment.
      Being yourself and being free is no longer.

  • seemorejustice

    Isn’t this operator the kind of people Liberals talk about helping out? Okay Left, step up to the plate and put your money where your mouth is!

    • Johnny Right

      I think the country and even some of the MSM are waking up to the Spite House and the deception m.o.

    • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

      Libs:”Welfare, Food Stamps, and Obamaphones, anyone?”
      Hannity:”I’ll pay your salary for a year, and help you find a job.”
      Earline:”I’ll take the latter, and vote Tea Party….And SCREW OBAMASCAM!”
      Good choice. Jawamax 8<{D}

    • Koker

      No she is trying to make a honest living by working and making it on her own. She’s the kind of people libs hate!

    • ScottinVA

      No.. the Left will step up to the plate and put OUR money where their mouths are.

  • V the K

    Sean Hannity seems like a genuinely nice guy. His show is repetitive and he could lose an argument to a paper bag, but he seems like a genuinely nice guy.

    • Drewdxbarry

      nice try.

    • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

      What show are you speaking of?

      • V the K

        His radio show, mostly. For every hour on the radio, there’s about 24 minutes of commericials, 10 minutes of Hannity promoting his TV show/Freedom Concerts/next hour of his radio show, 3 minutes replaying prerecorded loops of Democrats saying idiotic things (e,g, Ed Schultz calling Laura Ingraham names and talking about ripping Dick Cheney’s heart out), 5 minutes of Hannity talking about himself (how he used to wash dishes and wait tables) or what his kids are doing, 3 minutes bantering with Linda or Sweet Baby James, 8 minutes spouting talking points at callers, 2 minutes of theme and bumper music, which only leaves five minutes for original, interesting content.

        And when he debates with liberals, he has this habit of reverting to talking points instead of attacking the liberals premise. When debating Obamacare, for example, he’ll always revert to “Obama said if you like your plan you can keep your plan,” and “Obama said it would cost less then a trillion dollars, now it’s three trillion.” Both of which are valid political points, but don’t get to the substance of why Obamacare is bad policy.

        • AMSilver

          I went to the debate Hannity had with that anti-Bush, anti-Iraq War mayor of Salt Lake City, and was really disappointed in Hannity’s performance. He didn’t attack the liberal premise (mainly that Bush lied to get us into the war), which should have been pretty easy given that the mayor had been sharing all this information at rallies around the country and therefore Sean had his whole playbook… Instead he focused on how the troops are awesome and attacking the war was mean to the troops. The left side of my brain hurt due to all the lost opportunities there were to make legitimate points and shred the opposition.

          • V the K

            That is exactly how I feel when I hear him. I remember him going toe-to-toe with Anthony Weiner during the Obamacare debate. Weiner kept screaming “Medicare” and claiming how popular it was. Hannity could have destroyed his whole argument by pointing out that Medicare was bankrupt, but instead he kept to his talking points.

    • Jason Call

      Has great hair.

      • V the K

        He’s a better looking man than Rachel Maddow.

    • Grassroots Gaston

      V the K – Yep! It’s bad when I scream at liberals on TV but even worse when I’m screaming at so called conservatives. The missed opportunities really piss me off.

  • HARP2

    Good for you Sean.

  • Kat

    Oh, so now calling a call center, asking the representative answering the phone if she agrees to be on the radio and then asking her a series of questions is “harassment?”

    Geesh. I’ve worked in call centers for 8 years. Alex Wagner wouldn’t last 10 minutes in that job.

    I’d like to point out here that Hannity said that this girl was “contracted” – which means that she’s employed by a temp agency. Temp agencies very often do not tell those they contract out any real details about the job until they show up for work. I’d wager the majority of the people with this job didn’t have a lot of knowledge about what they were getting into.

    Hannity is awesome for doing this for her. I’ve heard a lot from some parts of the right in the past few weeks about how we deserve our reputation for being stingy and cruel. These kinds of actions demonstrate that this is often not the case.

    Not that the media will notice. They’ll just blame Hannity for “harassing” her and making her lose her job.

  • Shlomo Schekelstein

    Want to really upset libs. Start a fundraiser for her.

  • Renny

    Told the yahoos who jumped on Sean for this that he’d help her ‘if’ she got fired. And he has. Good going, Sean.

  • Acethepug

    Alex Wagner, lying political hack, seems to think it was okay for the woman to be fired. What did she do wrong, oh useless hack? Why are you condemning Hannity and not the Obamacare organization that fired her?

    Hannity has the audacity to help the woman, while President Boyfriend does nothing, and Wagner pitches a snitfit.

    And yet no one fired or jailed over Fast and Furious, Benghazi, etc.

    I guess the only things this Administration cares about are those that offend them personally.

        • Dan Thorpe

          No it just shows Earline was an honest and decent person and those are the people that you should help. Sometimes especially on his show he can let the arguments get away from him, but he always lets Democrats/liberals have their fair say. What he did was not wrong, he was just getting questions answered from the people that are supposed to be helping the people that supposedly want “affordable health care.” I got the impression that Earline honestly had no idea what she did was right or wrong. The fact that she was fired was vindictiveness by this government contractor. As a conservative, I take the slings and arrows from people on the left because I am of strong character and I know what I stand for is right. It sounds like Earline is a good person and I am glad that Sean showed what a good person he is.

        • conservativechick

          That’s what a greedy liberal would do.

    • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty


    • conservativechick

      She was obviously an HONEST person trying to take responsibility for herself and her children. That’s why Sean helped her. She didn’t know he was going to GIFT her and her child $13,000.00 tax free, each. That’s the max where gov’t doesn’t get a penny!

  • neoface

    I think this woman should sue O’NOcare. She wasn’t told to lie and not to talk to Hannity. She shoud sue Obama personally for all he’s got.

  • HanaFiveO

    When is someone going to question why she was fired? #Waronwomen

    • John

      Dollars to doughnuts the IRS will audit her to try to deny her the gifts. This administration is that spiteful.

    Some guy from a radio station where this woman lives, called Sean on his radio program today to offer her a job as a call screener for a radio show.

  • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

    A great American, Sean has his detractors, of which I’m not one, but even his regular liberal callers love him, because he let’s them say their piece, doesn’t name call or insult.. and sends gifts to their families, children.. asks about them personally.. shows a human side I’ve never seen from the left..

    you can’t listen to his show and find him hateful, it simply isn’t there..

    But he’s the go to guy when Obama wants to slam the right’s radio pundits.. which shows Obama doesn’t know anything about him besides what his staff tells him..

    He’s been in the work till you drop class, and is proud he was one of us,.. and we’re proud of him right back.

    Great job Sean, God bless you and your loved ones..

    • nc ✓s & balances

      He was also one of the few who was clanging the alarm bells about Rev. Wright (he even interviewed him in 2007), Bill Ayers et al before BHO was first elected. He never let up but the cheerleading media wouldn’t listen.

    • Mr_Wrestling_XIII

      Well said. I don’t listen to talk radio all the time (I rather listen to music while driving), but each time I tune in, Sean has always been a class act. Huckabee, too. Levin is alright, but he always sounds like his head is about to explode, lol! Michael Savage, on the other hand, is kind of a dick to his callers, even to the ones that agrees with him!

      • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

        Never understood Savage’s appeal,.. he’s.. an iconoclast to be sure, kind of like Jerry Doyle, (who I have a lingering fondness for because of his Babylon 5 days), just does not run with the pack.. each have their fans, and to each their own..

        I listen to Rush, Sean, about 3 or 4 times a week.. Hugh Hewitt sometimes,.. usually agree, sometimes not, but always enjoy their shows.. Phil Valentine’s pretty Good..

        I usually listen to Glenn Beck in the morning, followed by Dana Loesch sometimes, my local guy Mark Belling (who has filled in for Rush on occasion) and then sometimes Hannity and Levin. That being said I like all of them. Obviously I am not spending 12 hours a day but other twitchy and The Blaze its how I stay informed. I do have to disagree a little bit about Levin, the only time he get really angry is when he needs to, as a constitution scholar I have to imagine that what this president does does make his head want to explode.

    Another LOW for the Obama administration. A very nice and eloquent spokeswoman tells the truth, which the WH doesn’t allow and she is canned. Hannity came through like the man he is.

  • stuckinIL4now

    Kudos to Hannity as a man of his word. At least half of that money can be considered a “gift” which Dirling does not have to report ro da’ gubmint or pay income taxes on which means she gets more than she would’ve gotten from her salary. On the other side, Alex Wagner should learn how to research if she’s going to continue to even pretend to be a journalist. I heard the call and Hannity did not harass the young woman. It was a cordial conversation at the end of which he told her to call him if she got fired for it, but far be it for a member of the slimestream media to actually report the facts instead of making up lies to fit the Obumuh/Dembecile-shilling narrative.

  • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

    #TeaPartyAngels Didn’t watch his show and don’t listen to Sean on Radio, but I know he’s just a big Boy Scout for helping that Operator.
