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.

Published

On Wednesday, The Daily Beast reported that the Nevada-based company that was fined for improperly holding an indoor Trump rally in defiance of state public health restrictions is trying to profit off of the COVID-19 pandemic — selling people a technology to protect them from the virus even while facilitating events likely to spread it.

"Along with inviting the Trump campaign to use one of its warehouses for a rally 100 times larger than the current Nevada limit of 50 people for public gatherings, Xtreme Manufacturing has been producing and marketing a walk-through enclosure that delivers a decontaminating mist," reported Michael Daly. "'The Xtreme Opti-Clean Cube will help reduce cross-contamination risks and alleviate the spread of viruses for those entering any building, construction site or public venue,' says a video posted by the very company that put more than 5,600 people at risk."

Trump bashed for ‘cruel and sad’ attack on Cindy McCain: ‘Truly no bottom to your disgusting piggery’

Published

on

President Donald Trump bashed Sen. John McCain's widow for endorsing his rival Joe Biden, and his attack flopped.

Cindy McCain appeared on various TV news programs to announce that she'll endorse the president's Democratic challenger, and Trump insisted he barely knew the Republican senator's widow.

I hardly know Cindy McCain other than having put her on a Committee at her husband’s request. Joe Biden was John McCain’s lapdog. So many BAD decisions on Endless Wars & the V.A., which I brought from a horror show to HIGH APPROVAL. Never a fan of John. Cindy can have Sleepy Joe!
