On Thursday, a reporter from New York Times said that Sean Hannity, the conservative TV host might be the next Fox News employee to be ejected from the network, after Bill O’Reilly’s shocking decision to his job after allegations of sexual harassment.
Times reported Jeremy Peters pointed a report from 2010 about Fox, which included a quote where it is said that few of the Murdock family didn’t like how the network was being run. Fox is owned by a corporation that is managed by top executives Rupert Murdoch and his two sons.
Peters said, “I think you have to look at somebody like Sean Hannity and question whether or not his almost propaganda-like attitude and programming every night is going to be acceptable in the minds of the family which is clearly trying to shift the network in another direction.”
The host Hannity is mostly known as the biggest President Trump’s champion in TV news, and almost never could be heard from him any criticism about the White House. Now that O’Reilly left Fox, Hannity is the longest running host in the prime-time lineup.
Last summer, Roger Ailes was also pressured to leave the network after multiple women blamed him for sexual harassment. The network’s reorganization is now led by Lachlan and James Murdoch, who were trying to reposition the top-rank cable news channel, widely known for its conservative bent.
