As part of what can only be interpreted as a liberal reaction to Donald Trump’s presidency, there is currently a witch hunt going on at Fox News. Now that former chairman Roger Ailes has departed and Rupert Murdoch has relinquished control of the network, Fox News and its staff are now at the whim of Murdoch’s son James Murduch.
James is known to have a more liberal bent than his father and Ailes, and many fear that the network is the first stages of a makeover that will push it into a “safer,” more liberal direction. The first evidence of this could be seen with the shocking departure of longtime host Bill O’Reilly. Now Sean Hannity just received his own bad news.
According to reports, Sean Hannity is one of the two people who are next in line to get fired by Fox News’ executives. James Murdoch is reportedly planning to use the Bill O’Reilly ouster as an excuse to let go of Fox News’ co-president Bill Shine in a power grab.
Hannity is willing to take a stand for his close ally Shine. Said a source, “Sean is willing to take a bullet for Bill out of loyalty and he knows he’s holding a lot of chips there right now too. If he threatens to leave, and he could, then that really could be the end of the place as we know it.”
New York magazine’s Gabriel Sherman wrote an article detailing how the Murdoch sons’ declined to write a support statement for him. Tweeted Hannity afterwards, “Gabe, I pray this is NOT true because if it is, that’s the total end of the FNC as we know it. Done. Somebody HIGH UP AND INSIDE FNC is trying to get an innocent person fired. And Gabe I KNOW WHO it is. Best Sean. I’ll change it. #Istandwithshine.”Do you think Hannity will be gone from Fox News soon?
