The Murdoch boys are looking to continue their razing of Fox News and rebuilding the network from the ground up.
Bill O’Reilly was just sent packing, Roger Ailes is dead and sexpot Megyn Kelly has moved onto a new gig with NBC.
Sean Hannity still remains but that may not be the case for much longer. Hannity has seriously pissed off the Deep State and the Trump-Russia conspiracy theorists for his reporting on issues that are taboo.
It was Hannity who used his show to shine a spotlight on the Obama regime cockroaches who were using the surveillance state apparatus – ostensibly a defense against terrorism – for political means.
Despite Hannity’s dogged efforts to expose Susan Rice and others who abused their power to surveil the Trump campaign and possibly other Republicans, he was a lone voice in the wilderness. But as so often happens when one speaks truth to power, they quickly find themselves in peril.
Which is where Hannity is now.
Hannity’s cardinal sin was to draw attention to the unsolved murder of former DNC employee Seth Rich who was gunned down in cold blood last July. Rich was killed right before the DNC emails that showed how the DNC was working to screw Bernie Sanders out of the nomination and other dirty dealings were released by WikiLeaks.
It has long been speculated that he was the leaker and that there was no Russian hacking at all – an idea given credence that the FBI did not examine the DNC servers in what would be a case of major foreign espionage if true.
The Seth Rich story is inflammatory because if he was indeed the leaker, then the entire Russian hack hoax collapses in on itself and there have been serious crimes committed including murder and obstruction of justice at the highest levels.
The entire establishment media went after Hannity over his efforts to get to the bottom of the Seth Rich case, including promoting a story about a private investigator who claimed to have knowledge that Rich indeed sent the material to WikiLeaks.
The pushback was immediate and withering and Fox quickly retracted the explosive story, hanging Hannity out to dry.
Now the left is utilizing the same tactics that they used to get rid of O’Reilly – launching a coordinated campaign to go after Hannity’s advertisers to force his removal from the network which appears to be in the process of a major transformation.
And who but the George Soros-David Brock attack dog Media Matters to lead the way with their standard economic terrorism.

Hannity defended himself by coming out and stating that the network was attempting to silence him.

The Washington Examiner reports “Sean Hannity: There is an effort ‘to silence me’ on Fox News”:
Sean Hannity claimed during his opinion news program Tuesday evening that there is an effort to “silence” him from making certain comments on air.
“As for my job here at the Fox News Channel — there is an effort now abound to silence me,” Hannity told viewers late Tuesday. “Media Matters is attacking my advertising base,” he added, referring to a progressive watchdog group.
“That is what we have called on this program as liberal fascism. Attack, boycott, all in an effort to silence conservatives. I serve at the pleasure of the Fox News Channel. I’m here to do my job every night,” Hannity said.
Earlier in the program, Hannity announced he would no longer be discussing the murder of Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich as a result of speaking with the man’s family.
The instruments to force the silencing of Hannity and others who were asking inconvenient questions about Seth Rich were the dead man’s own family. Democratic damage control operatives flew into action immediately after the news broke that he was the DNC leaker and eventually the family was chosen to shame those like Hannity into silence.
Also, to provide the excuse for the boycotts under the pretense of fake news – something that Media Matters is a master at – so look for the knives to be out for Hannity.
Hey, who can blame the family for wanting to put the issue to rest despite serious questions that remain about Rich’s death and how it has been treated by authorities. In addition to a need for closure there should be a healthy fear of those who killed the former DNC employee and what they might do next.
It has the stench of a coverup and in this humble author’s opinion Hannity was absolutely correct to pursue it just like the Susan Rice unmasking of individuals in intelligence reports. The Rice story has completely disappeared and it would be hard to believe that it will ever come up again if a big name likeHannity is made an example of.
