  • Sean Hannity Warns: 'End of Fox News Channel' if Bill Shine is Replaced

In response to a report by New York Magazine's Gabriel Sherman which said that Shine is anxious he may lose his job, Hannity tweeted, "Gabe I pray this is NOT true because if it is, that's the total end of the FNC as we know it. Done".

He is the last man standing at Fox News Channel but Sean Hannity could walk if his long time friend and increasingly besieged FNC co-President Bill Shine doesn't start seeing some support from the Murdoch family.

Now that schadenfreude is the only joy most of us have left, we take it where we can get it. Take, for instance, the continued crumbling of the fortifications at Fox News, which, in the space of a year, has lost not only its CEO, but also the majority of its top-tier talent.

Spokespeople for Shine and the Murdochs denied that Shine asked for a statement of support.

Sherman's report notes that Shine's inability to change the culture of sexual harassment at Fox News may be the reason behind his lack of job security. "Done. Best Sean", Hannity tweeted, with a link to Gabe Sherman's NY magazine story citing unnamed sources who claimed that Shine has become anxious about what he perceives as lack of public support for him from 21st Century Fox leaders Rupert, Lachlan and James Murdoch. Citing anonymous sources NY magazine is reporting that Shine recently asked 21st Century Fox CEO James Murdoc for a statement of support. "Best Sean", Hannity's tweet read. "I think the rank and file believe he will be replaced, but who knows?" this person said. Shine was promoted to co-president and head of news and programming in August, a position he stands accused of using to demote women who refused Ailes's sexual advances. The lawsuit came on the heels of last week's ouster of longtime host Bill "O'Reilly in the face of mounting sexual harassment charges".

Roger Ailes is gone.

'I pray this is NOT true because if it is, that's the total end of the FNC as we know it.

Fox News on Friday declined to comment on speculation about Shine.
