Donald Trump just got some really bad news.
There are major changes taking place at Fox News.
And Sean Hannity made one on-air confession that could spell the end of Fox News as you know it.
During a recent broadcast, Hannity had Fox News contributor Geraldo Rivera on to discuss the state of play of the various investigations swirling around Capitol Hill.
Those included Attorney General William Barr and United States Attorney John Durham’s investigation into the origin of the Russian collusion hoax.
Geraldo made a point to note that despite whatever devastating findings Barr and Durham turn up, only Hannity will cover them.
The rest of the fake and corrupt news media will sweep whatever crimes Barack Obama and his henchmen committed under the rug.
Hannity took those comments as an opportunity to point out that Fox News Channel is undergoing quite a sea of change during the so-called “straight news” programming.
The top-rated cable news host explained to Rivera that there were plenty of hosts and on-air talent that would fit in well at CNN or MSNBC.
“By the way, we are hardly a channel of agreement,” Hannity declared. “We have a few resistance people on the channel if we’re gonna be honest, Geraldo!”
“I mean total resistance, not half-resistance,” Hannity concluded.
Hannity could have been referring to “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace.
Wallace is an institution in the Washington establishment and Fox News always holds his work out to quiet critics that they are “state TV.”
But in recent days Wallace strayed far from fair and balanced journalism into spouting off anti-Trump fake news.
The latest example was Wallace blatantly misrepresenting the testimony of special envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker.
Wallace claimed Volker’s closed-door deposition to the House Intelligence Committee as “devastating” for President Trump.
“This 11-page opening statement is quite devastating to the president and Rudy Giuliani’s case,” Wallace told Fox News host and left-wing loon Shepard Smith. It basically says that Volker, who all sides agree was an honest broker in this whole thing, was very disturbed by the information, he thought disinformation, that various Ukrainian officials were sending to Rudy Giuliani, the president’s private lawyer.
But Wallace cherry-picked parts of Volker’s opening statement that boosted the pro-impeachment narrative.
Volker’s testimony actually blew the impeachment narrative out of the water by undercutting the idea there was a “quid pro quo” in Donald Trump withholding military aide to Ukraine in exchange for an investigation into Joe Biden.
“As you will see from the extensive text messages I am providing, which convey a sense of real-time dialogue with several different actors, Vice President Biden was never a topic of discussion,” Volker told lawmakers.
“[A]t no time was I aware of or took part in an effort to urge Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Biden,” Volker continued.
Had Wallace been interested in covering the news, he would have presented the complete picture from Volker’s opening statement.
Instead, Wallace – as well as other on-air talent at Fox News like Smith and legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano – threw in with the anti-Trump resistance to try and remove the President from office.
