During the presidential election, the mainstream media was convinced Hillary Clinton was going to win by a landslide. Not surprising since the liberal networks blatantly pandered for Hillary throughout the campaign. Sean Hannity, however, wasn’t so easily persuaded and challenged even his own bosses.
This week, it was revealed that some Fox News executives were so furious at Hannity for refusing to say that Clinton would beat Donald Trump that they were considering firing him.
“As most of the publications themselves clearly state, the sample obviously can’t be representative of the electorate because they only reflect the views of those Internet users who have chosen to participate…Another problem — we know some campaigns/groups of supporters encourage people to vote in online polls and flood the results,” said executive Dana Blanton. “These quickie click items do not meet our editorial standards.”
Hannity refused to back down, nonetheless.
“You’ve got this list of polls, Donald Trump wins. You watch TV, Hillary Clinton wins,” the Fox News host said. Brian Kilmeade then backed him up, saying, “The online polls show you guys won in overwhelming margins.”
In the end, Hannity was right and was able to keep his job.
