His son, best-selling author Christopher Buckley, “expressed great dismay,” that the award would go to Hannity, according to Tapper. “Giving an award in his name to Hannity — a pugnacious talk radio host who has shared conspiracy theories on his popular cable news show — had caused hand wringing among some conservatives,” Tapper wrote. »
