People Don’t Need ‘Fake News’ Corporate Media Anymore; Landscape Shifting to Breitbart, Drudge, Talk Radio
“Sean Hannity talked about the 2016 election with SiriusXM host Matt Boyle on Monday’s Breitbart News Daily.
Hannity said that what we learned about the “radical Left colluding-with-Clinton campaign media” from the WikiLeaks revelations was “spectacular.”
“It is the most underreported story out there,” he declared. “They’re not going to cover the fact that they themselves colluded with Clinton, helped Clinton, in some cases, gave questions to her or sought questions for Trump or for Cruz through the DNC, John Harwood advising the Clinton campaign, moderating a debate. It’s pretty spectacular on Election Night that one of the moderators, Martha Raddatz, cried when Donald Trump had won the election.”
“I mean, they lie. They’re corrupt. They’re dishonest. They collude. They’re all in this hyperventilating mode about ‘fake news’ now, but they are fake news. That’s them. It’s now on display for the world to see,” Hannity charged.
“I just keep pointing out to people – look, people don’t need them any more. They’re done. I suggested the other day that if any of these organizations were involved in collusion with the Clinton campaign, why do they get a seat in the White House press office? Why does Donald Trump need a White House press office? He doesn’t. You know, you can have a pool person that’s standing by if, God forbid, there’s any bad news about the president that the country needs to know, but his own staff could tweet it out, for crying out loud,” he said.”
“Things have changed dramatically, with Breitbart, and Drudge, and cable news, and talk radio, and social media – Twitter, Instagram, Facebook. People are getting information very differently than they did,” Hannity reflected.
He thought the media lost a vital share of their remaining credibility by getting the 2016 election so completely wrong, remembering how author Ann Coulter was almost “laughed off the stage” on Bill Maher’s HBO program during the summer for saying that Trump had the best chance of winning the election.”
