CNN host launched this smear campaign to get Sean Hannity fired
Anti-Trump forces in the media have Sean Hannity in their sights.
One anti-Trump and anti-Fox activist is springing into action.
And he hatched this scheme to get Hannity fired.
CNN’s Brian Stelter is a far-left activist who routinely peddles conspiracy theories on air.
He constantly pushes misinformation and conspiracies about Trump colluding with Russia despite providing no evidence to back up his claims.
Now he is trying to get Sean Hannity fired because he hates Fox News and does not believe Trump supporters should be allowed to hold platforms to defend the President.
Stelter went to town on the non-story that Hannity consulted with Trump attorney Michael Cohen on a few occasions on legal matters despite not retaining him as his attorney.
The CNN host speculated that Hannity’s headaches should cause Rupert Murdoch’s liberal leaning children to step in and take Hannity off the air.
He wrote in his Reliable Sources newsletter:
“With Hannity’s high ratings come huge headaches for Fox News. Especially right now. Here are some of the Q’s that Fox is not yet answering:
— Did Hannity disclose his Cohen connection to his bosses? When?
— On the air Monday night, Hannity said “my discussions” with Cohen “never rose to any level that I needed to tell anyone that I was asking him questions.” Does Fox management agree?
— In any case, why didn’t he disclose it to his viewers, just to be on the safe side? Alan Dershowitz chastised Hannity for this ON Hannity’s show Monday night…
— For that matter, why isn’t Hannity more upfront about all the times he speaks and meets with the president?
— Who oversees Hannity’s on-air content and off-air connections? Is there a head of standards involved? Hannity seems to have an unusual, even shocking amount of autonomy.
— Will Fox take disciplinary action against Hannity?”
— Admittedly I haven’t asked Fox PR this one, but it’s rattling around in my mind: Are the Murdochs really comfortable with all of this? Paging James Murdoch…
CNN and Stelter want Hannity off the air for good.
Mentioning James Murdoch was done intentionally.
He is known to be a liberal-minded globalist.
Stelter is trying to paint Hannity as a figure who would embarrass Murdoch in his worldly circle and nudge him into firing the popular Fox host.
By silencing Trump supporters, anti-Trump activists like Stelter believe they can control the narrative surrounding the President with no push back.
