Sean Hannity Threatens To Leave As Fox News Is Sinking Fast

"SNIP.....


Fox News Is A Raging Dumpster Fire Of A TV Network

Vanity Fair reported:


While Fox’s prime-time shows generate the lion’s share of the network’s ratings and ad revenues, there have been increasing issues with lost advertising. Many blue-chip companies don’t want to buy time on those shows because of the divisive pro-Trump content. “Executives are very worried Fox & Friends will be next. If advertisers start bailing on them, they’re screwed,” an insider said.

….

According to sources, Hannity is still angry over the Murdochs’ firing of Fox News C.E.O. Roger Ailes and co-president Bill Shine, Hannity’s close friend and former producer. Hannity believes the Murdochs are out to get Trump. “Hannity told Trump last year that the Murdochs hate Trump, and Hannity is the only one holding Fox together,” a source who heard the conversation told me. Hannity has told friends that he intends to leave Fox when his contract expires in early 2021, two people who’ve spoken with him said.


Could Sean Hannity Be A Future Host On Trump TV?

The timing of Sean Hannity’s potential departure from Fox News matches up with Trump’s possible exit from the White House if he loses in 2020. Trump TV was an idea that was kicked around by the Trumps when they expected to lose the 2016 election, so it is almost too perfect that Trump TV could put into action if Trump gets booted out of the White House next year.

1. Watch him join fat Donnie's iadministration very soon

Taking over as press secretary.

But if there is a fat donnie network I hope the major carriers refuse to carry it or charge premium carriage rates to get it on your cable and satellite package. Like hbo, Netflix etc. pay up suckers if you want the propaganda of gate.

2. Learn the Megan Kelly lesson, Sean

Propagandists have ONE place they can spew their venom: Fox.

Leave, and you have nowhere to go but into webcast irrelevance like Glenn Beck, where your only audience is Incels.

Elderly rubes can't operate a smart phone, much less a computer. Just like your pal President Asshole.

32. Like Tucker, who tanked all previous TV gigs (the ones he landed despite his lack of any

discernible talent)... but shit floats (to the top!) at Fox, especially for those going full MAGAt.

18. Wow. That was a nice phrase to read: ". . .Trump gets booted out of the White House next year.". . .

I hadn't reflected on that yet: he'll be gone next year. Makes it sound so much closer.

27. Trump might find it difficult to find cable providers willing to carry a radioactive station like

his would clearly be and he would not have the pull to get them to carry it like Murdoch had to get them to carry his shit station.

38. About the only exemption to that kind of thing is for people in prison for murder I

believe but otherwise the answer is generally yes unless of course its included in part of a plea deal.

The rating services rank Fox News the #1 cable show by far.
