Hmm. Have you watch Rachael Maddow recently? If going down a conspiracy theory route was the path to being fired, she'd have had advertisers dropping out a long time ago and would already be stacking shelves at the local store.

You really do not see a problem with an organized attempt to control the news in order to control what the public thinks?
That's not what's going on. What's happening is that Hannity jumped the shark. For about two years now he's been really into conspiracy theories, and he keeps going deeper and deeper down the rabbit hole. Lately, he's started lifting stuff from Infowars (including promoting them and Alex Jones as credible sources of news on his radio show), and he went into the Glenn Beck career suicide spiral.
He's completely lost touch with reality, to the point that his editors won't let him run with stories anymore.

Thank god, there needs to be less scumbags like him spouting fake news and alt right meat.
as the network swerves left to axe all conservative voices and join the ranks of the other so called "news" networks.
The controversial media mogul Rupert Murdoch introduced his “friend” Trump at a dinner in New York honouring American and Australian veterans of the Battle of the Coral Sea.
Trump said that Murdoch had asked him for annual donations to the American Australian Association.
Trump then told everyone he had obliged and donated via Murdoch, who owns a massive chunk of the media, including The Sun, The Times, the New York Post, the Wall Street Journal, 21st Century Fox and News Corp.
According to the Daily Mail, Trump said:
"I've been contributing to for years through Rupert. Every year he'd send me this letter – "Could you please give money?" I'd say, "What do I have to do with that, Rupert?" And I'd just keep sending him money, money.
And now I realise, that was money well-spent. That's great. Right, Rupert? For years I've been doing my thing for Rupert."
Fox News isn't doing as well as it once did -- it's not the "opposition network" anymore. It doesn't feel as good to be part of the establishment. It's not surprising Fox News is cutting the fat and trimming things around.
Hannity will likely move over to The Blaze or some other uber-conservative network.
Yeah, people don't want to buy products from companies that run ads on those types of people's shows. Despite Trump winning, the popular vote of people who actually voted didn't vote for him.

Guys you have to respect the market
It's not market driven, it's ideology driven. If it was market driven, then throughout the years of Obama, MSNBC and CNN would have been like Fox.

This post cracks me up. this is the way mainstream media is. To think that seth rich could have been murdered for political reasons is losing touch with reality. Now a botched robbery where nothing is taken that's the reality and you better like it. You wanna question it we will go after your advertising and then we will take your job. i mean you have went off script and therefore lost touch with reality.

You probably shouldn't refer to that lying shill Hannity as "news" as he himself has recently declared, "I never claimed to be a journalist."
