NYT Reporter Hints: Hannity Should Be Dumped Next

Written by  Jackson Richman

New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters hinted on Thursday's Morning Joe that Fox News's Sean Hannity be fired next after the network showed anchor Bill O'Reilly the door, Wednesday, in response to sexual harassment allegations.

He lectured, "I think you have to look at somebody like Sean Hannity and question whether or not his almost propaganda-like attitude and programs every night is going to be acceptable in the minds of the family, which is clearly trying to shift the network."

Moments beforehand, Peters said: "It wasn't just a dollar figure thing here. Because those advertisers weren't really leaving Fox, just leaving The O'Reilly Factor and shifting to other parts of the network. The question is whether or not this is a broader change and the influence that the Murdoch children who were long suspicious of Roger Ailes."

Peters was part of a panel blasting not only O'Reilly, but also the network's existance. "The presence of Fox News and the presence of O'Reilly, the most popular cable show host on that channel, on any channel actually, to be honest about it, had an extraordinary impact on further dividing America politically, categorizing America politically," political commentator Mike Barnicle said.

This is the liberal progressives trying to shut down Fox. First it's O'Reilly, now this pos is putting Hannity's name out there. The conservative voice will not be silenced.

The liberal left continues to be Apoplectic. They will never except the Trump presidency.

Hannity is about the only one I watch, if you get rid of him you'll loss a lot of viewers

Hmmmmmm....sounds like another attempt to silence conservatives. I could be wrong and probably am since liberals are so kind, giving, understanding, gentle and reasonable people. Excuse me I have to run now and throw up....

You're not wrong! It's an all-out attack on the Conservative news people and it must be fought and stopped!

Jeremy Peters the proponent of 'purity of thought'. Whatever happened to the idea that not only should an individual have the right to an opinion or, a cable new network have the right to broadcast punditry of its choosing?

The vilest part of Peters' diatribe is his belief the public should not be permitted to listen to or watch commentators, pundits or news shows, unless those programs reflect Peters' ideology.
