Fox’s Hannity Smackdown

sean-hannity-0111If you doubted that the ouster of Fox News founder Roger Ailes was a marked turn to the left for the network, you may want to sit down for this.

Oh, you thought it was all about sexual harassment?

Well, the very liberal Murdock brothers are in town and it’s looking more like they’re ordering right-wingers out by sundown.

Hot Air:

You’ll find the Hannity bit in Trump’s new eight-minute ad at exactly 6:00 of the clip below.

Fox is upset, but it’s not clear why.

The Erik Wemple Blog has asked Fox News whether Hannity had to secure permission from Fox News to participate in the ad, whether other opinionators at Fox News could do likewise and whether Hannity wrote his talking points or read a script provided by the Trump campaign. We haven’t yet heard back. That said, Hannity has been more transparent than many of his peers in cable TV of late, giving interviews to this blog and BuzzFeed as well as answering queries on Twitter.

“We had no knowledge that Sean Hannity was participating in this,” says a Fox News spokesperson, “and he will not be doing anything along these lines for the remainder of the election.”

[Watch beginning at 6:00]

The eternal defense of Hannity’s shilling for Trump is that he’s not a journalist and makes no bones about his preferences. It’s not unethical for him to be partial because he’s not claiming impartiality to begin with.  [read it all]

All very true, but I disagree that it is unclear why Fox 0.2 is trying to goad Hannity, which seems the obvious case.

It should be very clear to Allahpundit and anyone else who didn’t see the handwriting on the wall with the sudden departure of Greta Van Susteren on Ailes’ heels in July.

Especially now that we know Van Susteren was immediately pulled from the lineup after notifying Fox of her intention to leave with Ailes.

That was a terrific “gold watch” for Greta’s 14 years of service and bringing the network wheelbarrows of cash.

So Hannity’s unwarranted smackdown seems intentional in light of Van Susteren’s mistreatment.

Number One Son, James Murdock, is already known as a problem child with ethics issues, and the arrival of the über liberal trust fund babies in this universe of relatively free expression cannot be a good omen for the network’s future.

Are we looking at the Second Coming of MSNBC?
