I don’t know if the recent shakeup over at Fox News has got everyone on edge or not, but Sean Hannity carried on a conversation with a New York Magazine reporter over Twitter that seemed to indicate he has some concerns.
After CEO Roger Ailes was forced to step down, due to multiple complaints and lawsuits for sexual harassment, 21st Century Fox top boss, Rupert Murdoch, and his sons, James and Lachlan, took over control of Fox News. It was a new day, after that.
From The Hill:
Hannity was referring to rumors that Bill Shine, the network’s co-president, is concerned about his future at the network. New York Magazine reported that Shine sought a statement of support from the sons of Rupert Murdoch, Fox’s owner, but was denied.
As a close ally of Ailes’, Shine has every reason to be nervous. The Murdoch sons seem to be on a mission to totally remake the image of Fox News, and perhaps, even the direction.
