Independent Journal Review: “Fox News host Sean Hannity is going on vacation for the remainder of the week amid controversy over his decision to promote unconfirmed reports linking murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich and his unproven communication with WikiLeaks. It’s unclear if the vacation was preplanned.
“The Five” co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle announced on Wednesday she would be filling in for Hannity during his absence.”

Earlier this week on Deadline: “Hannity said yesterday that his heart was “not troubled in the least” over reports of FNC staffers being ashamed of his beating of the drum that the 27-year old Rich may have been murdered by potentially politically connected operatives for allegedly communicating with WikiLeaks.”

Later on Fox News: “On May 16, a story was posted on the Fox News website on the investigation into the 2016 murder of DNC Staffer Seth Rich. The article was not initially subjected to the high degree of editorial scrutiny we require for all our reporting. Upon appropriate review, the article was found not to meet those standards and has since been removed.”

NYT has been focused on the ownership change at Fox, the sons creating a warmer Fox. The point being Fox News has changed. Murdoch’s sons have taken over, they’re millennials, Starbucks global warming, fuzzy workplace libs. There has been conforming. The company lost advertising revenue, tens of thousands of people were complaining. It’s now in 3rd place.

Anyway, seems to me Hannity always took a long Memorial Day weekend. Obviously Fox is now getting more stiff looks.
