Hannity defends Fox News president Shine amid report


Now-possibly sensing his rising power as the last "name" operating at the right-wing cable news network-smug scarecrow Sean Hannity is making noises about how unhappy he'll be if the network kowtows to a recent class action lawsuit against it. Shine - a co-defendant in Julie Rodinsky's sexual discrimination suit, Andrea Tartaro's workplace harassment suit, and Kelly Wrights's racial discrimination suit - reportedly asked James and Lachlan Murdoch, Fox News' CEO and chairman, respectively, to release a public statement of support this week. (This is the one about racial discrimination, not sexual harassment, for those playing along at home.) NY magazine reported sources claiming that Shine asked the younger Murdochs to issue a statement of support for him, and was flatly turned down.

Sean Hannity got a little loopy on Twitter this afternoon, firing off a series of tweets in response to today's Daily Intelligencer piece about the latest signs of upheaval at Fox News.

Sherman's report notes that Shine's inability to change the culture of sexual harassment at Fox News may be the reason behind his lack of job security.

"Somebody HIGH UP AND INSIDE FNC is trying to get an innocent person fired. and Gabe I KNOW WHO it is".

The wheels are coming off the wagon at Fox News. In July, former Fox News chief Roger Ailes was sacked over his own sexual-harassment scandal.

Fox News host Sean Hannity warned on Twitter Thursday that the end of the Fox News channel could be at hand.

A Fox News spokesperson told NY magazine that the conversations did not took place and that Shine did not asked the younger Murdochs for a statement of support. "Best Sean", Hannity's tweet read. The Murdoch boys declined, leaving Shine's future in question. The lawsuit came on the heels of last week's ouster of longtime host Bill O'Reilly in the face of mounting sexual harassment charges. Bill Shine, who replaced Roger Ailes running the network, may be out any minute.

But the end of FNC "as we know it" didn't happen just today.
