Sean Hannity: “This is way way way bigger than any one individual”

Have you ever noticed that many news shows and websites have nearly identical headlines and talking points about the same story? That might be because of DNC affiliate and George Soros-funded David Brock’s organization Media Matters, among other partisan think-tanks, control the narrative. Media Matters often brags about having their memos and talking points circulated among the mainstream media. During the 2016 Presidential Campaign, David Brock was funding accounts to attack Trump supporters and defend Hillary Clinton on Reddit, 4chan, Twitter, Facebook, and in comments of news websites through a Super PAC called “Correct The Record.” While Media Matters, Correct The Record, and Share Blue may not be the top of the left-wing pyramid, they are an open and public piece of a shadowy and organized puzzle, one that Fox News host Sean Hannity may have begun to solve.

After weeks of speculation, Fox News finally got rid of its most popular host, Bill O’Reilly. The longtime host has been vacationing in Italy while his network determines his future with Fox, which has now been confirmed.

Rupert Murdoch, executive chairman of Fox News and its parent company, 21st Century Fox, made the announcement Tuesday.

“After a thorough and careful review of the allegations, the Company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Bill O’Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News Channel,” the statement reads.

While many saw this as a slippery slope for the destruction of strong conservative figures, I was happy to see Bill go. Little did I know, they were right. They came for conservative conspiracy theorist and radio host Alex Jones next as he went to court and ultimately lost primary custody of his children to his divorced wife. The slippery slope is now becoming a mudslide as Fox News has been hit with more accusations of sexual harassment, including of their ratings-dominating Sean Hannity. Sean Hannity immediately fired back attempting to put a stop to this slippery slope, and on Twitter threatened to sue those attempting to “slander” him. Things escalated on Twitter when Sean Hannity responded to a tweet about Fox News being in turmoil.

On Sunday, Sean Hannity announced he is apparently is following through with promise to sue.

The real story comes in a later tweet when Sean Hannity replied to a supporter who said “If she backs off & claims poverty, then go after attorney.”

“This is way bigger than any one individual.” Could it be that Sean Hannity has found the nerve of the left, the ones coordinating the constant assault on the Right and on President Trump? Or could it be that Sean Hannity found the conservatives attempting to break away and form a new conservative network, alleging that Fox News has moved too far to the left? Mediaite reported

On the heels of major shakeups at the Fox News Network, an alternative conservative network is being actively discussed amongst conservative fat cats.

A well-placed source close to the proposal tellsMediaite that serious discussions are underway to create an alternative conservative cable network on the belief that the Fox News Network is moving too far to the left. The source, who is engaged in the talks, says a meeting is planned for today with two prominent high-powered television executives, some underperforming conservative networks and people who have an interest and the ability to fund a new network.

This news comes on the heels of a long profile in last weekend’s New York Times which paints a picture of a changing Fox News Network with Murdoch’s sons, James and Lachlan, CEO and co-chairman of parent company 21st Century Fox, at the helm. The piece struck fear into the minds of some Fox News’ hardcore conservatives with talk of the sons wanting to rid the company “of the old-guard culture on which their father built his empire” and bringing “a warmer and fuzzier workplace” that would move away from an “anti-politically correct environment.”

On Thursday, New York Magazine‘s Gabe Sherman, a constant thorn in the side of Fox News, reported that “sweeping management changes” may be coming to the network as well. Sherman’s report cited three anonymous sources that contend that the network’s co-President Bill Shine recently asked the Murdoch sons to release a statement in support of him amid the roiling lawsuits and scandals. Both Fox News and 21 Century Fox have vigorously denied that Shine made such a request but the report by Sherman prompted a rather mysterious tweet about the “total end of the FNC as we know it” by the network’s biggest remaining star, Sean Hannity.

“I’m working on it (the new conservative channel) hot and heavy,” the source said. “It’s live, it’s real.” The new channel could come to fruition within the next 10 to 12 months, the executive said.

It is no surprise that a savvy investor would see the turmoil within Fox News as a major opportunity. As The Times piece noted, analysts estimate that Fox News produced 25 percent of 21st Century Fox’s operating income last year or a whopping $6.6 billion. Conservative news remains a cash cow for investors, but the media landscape is quickly changing with younger viewers “cutting the cord” and turning to alternative over-the-top live streaming platforms like Hulu, Amazon, Roku and YouTube TV. Could a conservative alternative channel with some big names have an edge on the 20-year-old conservative network? Stay tuned. Our source is convinced it can happen.

The most alarming part of the Mediaite story is that there is big money involved, enough so that this network could come to fruition within a year. If Fox News is crippled by the time this network launches, Fox News may no longer be the #1 news network among conservatives. One America News Network CEO Robert Herring tweeted that he would happily sign on conservative talent.

Could it be that some conservatives are attempting to sabotage Fox News to take a larger piece of the conservative news pie? Could it be the left with Media Matters and organized coordination with the DNC? Could it be a mix of both? Sean Hannity is seemingly on the trail.
