Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity is one of Donald Trump’s biggest on-air boosters.
But is there a rupture in the relationship?
And now Sean Hannity said one shocking thing behind closed doors.
As part of Dominion Voting Systems’ $1.6 billion defamation suit against Fox News the company put together a court filing that the liberal media seized on to attack Fox News.
Fox News responded to the filing by explaining that Dominion’s brief consisted of carefully selected quotes taken out of context to fit an anti-Fox narrative.
One of the quotes that caught everyone’s attention was Fox News founder Rupert Murdoch’s email to former RINO Speaker of the House and Fox News board member Paul Ryan.
In the email Murdoch claimed Sean Hannity had “been privately disgusted by Trump for weeks, but was scared to lose viewers.”
The corporate media tried to make this seem like Hannity went on the air and endorsed the claim made by Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani that Dominion voting machines changed votes even though that was never the case.
Donald Trump reacted to the story by not going after Hannity but instead attacking Murdoch.
“Why is Rupert Murdoch throwing his anchors under the table, which also happens to be killing his case and infuriating his viewers, who will again be leaving in droves – they already are. There is MASSIVE evidence of voter fraud & irregularities in the 2020 Presidential Election. Just look at the documentary ‘2000 MULES’ and you will see large scale ballot stuffing caught on government cameras, or votes cast without Legislatures approval, or just recently, the FBI/Twitter Files Scandal. RIGGED!!!” Trump wrote on Truth Social.
Trump is furious with Murdoch because Murdoch banned Trump from appearing on Fox News even though Trump is the frontrunner for the GOP presidential nomination.
“There was so much Voter Fraud & Irregularities in the 2020 Presidential Election that it amazes me how weak and ineffective FoxNews is at portraying itself in the lawsuit against them. They look too scared and frightened to reveal the massive amounts of voter fraud & Irregularities already found, and it would actually help them in the lawsuit. Instead FoxNews wants to silence its anchors and reporters, the reason so many of their viewers fled. The Election was that of a Third World Country!” Trump added.
There is a clear rupture between Trump and Fox News.
Rupert Murdoch clearly wanted to use Fox News to push the GOP away from Trump following the 2020 election.
But the 2022 midterms finally served as the breaking point.
After a series of Trump-endorsed candidates lost key races Murdoch said enough was enough and informed Trump that Fox News would not back his re-election campaign.
The initial rupture between Trump and Fox came in 2020.
Liberal activists in the press seized on this lawsuit to try and blow the rift wide open by claiming Hannity lied to viewers about what he really thought about Trump.
But that is not really the case.
