Hannity pondering bailing on Fox News because he no longer feels the network is loyal to Trump: report

Published

on

A new Vanity Fair analysis behind the scenes of Fox News reveals an interesting new piece of information: longtime Fox megastar conservative commentator Sean Hannity has told friends that he plans to leave the network after his current contract expires in 2021.

According to sources, Hannity is angry at the Murdochs, the powerful conservative family that owns the network, believing they are insufficiently loyal to President Donald Trump and secretly out to get him. He has been angry ever since the network ousted former Fox CEO Roger Ailes, who was accused of sexual harassment by multiple employees, and co-president Bill Shine, who served a brief stint in the White House after his departure.

“Sean doesn’t feel supported,” one Fox news staffersaid. “He has no relationship with Lachlan [Murdoch]. Sean thinks, Wait a second, I was hired to get ratings and I get ratings, but now people are embarrassed about me? He feels Fox spends a lot of time supporting Shepard Smith but his show makes no money. That’s annoying to him.”

Another source claimed that Hannity even “told Trump last year that the Murdochs hate Trump, and Hannity is the only one holding Fox together.”

Hannity’s discontent underscores a growing problem for Fox News’ owners: they are stuck between trying to please President Donald Trump and trying not to alienate mainstream corporate advertisers, who have increasingly denounced the most inflammatory rhetoric from personalities like Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and Tucker Carlson.

2020 Election

Democrats are on the verge of setting a ‘time bomb’ for any candidate who can defeat Trump

Published

If a new president takes over the White House in January 2021, he or she may quickly find that the Democratic Party that just won control of the executive branch left a loaded gun in the hands of the Republicans, who are all too eager to use it.

That should be the takeaway from reports about the budget negotiations between the House Democrats and the Trump administration. According to Bloomberg reporter Sahil Kapur, the parties are coalescing around an agreement to raise spending by $350 billion, offset that increase somewhat with about $75 billion, and extend the debt ceiling — now set to expire in the fall — to July 31, 2021.

Trump’s USDA plans to take 3 million Americans off of food stamps

Published

on

The US Department of Agriculture will propose a rule on Tuesday that would strengthen restrictions on food stamp recipients -- cutting approximately 3.1 million Americans from the program, according to Reuters.

Currently, 43 U.S. states allow residents to automatically become eligible for food stamps through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, known as SNAP, if they receive benefits from another federal program known as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, or TANF, according to the USDA.

Teeth ‘time capsule’ reveals that 2 million years ago, early humans breastfed for up to 6 years

Published

on

Humans’ distant ancestor Australopithecus africanus had a unique approach to raising their young, as shown in our new research published today in Nature.

Geochemical analysis of four teeth shows they exclusively breastfed infants for about 6-9 months, before supplementing breast milk with varying amounts of solid food until they were 5-6 years old. The balance between milk and solid food in this period varied cyclically, probably in response to seasonal changes in food availability.
