After everything that happened at Fox News it looks like there is a witch hunt going on there. This is all as a reaction to Donald Trump’s presidency. Now that Roger Ailes, the former chairman, has departed and Rupert Murdoch has relinquished control of the network, Fox News and its staff are now at the whim of James Murdoch, Murdoch’s son.
James, however, is known to have a more liberal bent than his father and Ailes. And, many fear that the network is the first stage of a makeover that will push it into a ‘’safer’’, more liberal direction. If we need any example of this it would be the fact of Bill O’Reilly’s leaving Fox News for good. But now, Sean Hannity is next. He 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’s executives. Reportedly, Murdoch is 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. But, Hannity is most definitely going to take a stand for his close friend Shine.
‘’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,’’ as a source said.
Gabriel Sherman, a writer for New York magazine, wrote an article detailing how the Murdoch son’s declined to write a support statement for him. Afterward, Hannity tweeted:
‘’ Gabe, I pray this in 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.’’
