It never fails: right after I file my Talk Radio Watch column, a story comes in that would have been perfect to include.

This week, it was a piece at Yahoo! News, announcing that documents obtained through a Freedom of Information request revealed that “prime time shouter” Sean Hannity and his boss, Fox News chief Roger Ailes, were both licensed to carry handguns in New York City. We’re also informed that “Hannity’s license has been previously reported” by Yahoo! News, but hey, in case you missed it…

You have to keep reading past the first three paragraphs to learn that other “carry business” license holders include Howard Stern and Don Imus. I guess Yahoo! News doesn’t think the idea of either of those men walking the streets with loaded firearms would frighten its average reader. After all, Stern and Imus are models of sanity and serenity…

Yahoo! News says they’re still going through the 445-page (!) list to find “interesting or new names.” I’ll save them some work: Glenn Beck’s name will be on there, and I’m sure that will provide Yahoo! News’ with its next breathless headline.
