Let’s take a look at ALL the text messages of every on camera news anchor or show host on both Cable and Network TV. But, it’s super easy to call out Hannity. Everyone on the left hates him and wants him silenced.
Fox News host Sean Hannity was taking orders from the White House even as he ranted about the “lunatics” supporting then-President Donald Trump, according to new details in a trove of text messages revealed by CNN.
Hannity and then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows exchanged 82 texts from Election Day 2020 up until Joe Biden’s inauguration as president, CNN reported.
Let’s check Paul Begala’s phone, or maybe Chris Cuomo’s for any text where they did the bidding of a White House staffer. People…EVERYONE DOES IT.
Yet, here’s a focus on one of the most prominent conservative show hosts on cable. An easy target.
Newsflash: TV talking heads have contacts, some of which are at the highest levels of government. How do you think they get stories for their broadcasts? How many times have you heard an on-camera personality say, “my sources tell me…”. Those sources are often press secretaries, advisors, and members of congress. It’s not shocking. What’s more, in this example of CNN highlighting Sean Hannity paying fealty to the Trump White House, what’s he really doing? He’s trying to get out the vote. For his own party. For a candidate he’d like to see elected. He can do that when he is a show host. He doesn’t pretend to be a straight news journalist like the aforementioned Cuomo.
Sean will be fine, of course. This kerfuffle is just one more example of the left wing media aiming for TV personalities that have the kind of ratings they only hoped they could have.
Rachel Maddow, can we see your text messages?
