Hannity defends Fox News president Shine amid report

Minutes later, he added, "Somebody HIGH UP AND INSIDE FNC is trying to get an innocent person fired".

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.

The host then continued to discuss the story, even going as far as to claim Shine was being sabotaged by someone within Fox News.

The polarizing host fired off a series of tweets on Thursday afternoon amid rumors Bill Shine was potentially losing support from the Murdochs - particularly James and Lachlan.

It's not Fox News co-president Bill Shine fans should be the most anxious about, but the "Fair and Balanced to President Donald Trump" Sean Hannity.

As you may have noticed, Fox News isn't exactly in the best place optics-wise at the moment.

On Thursday, New York Magazine's Gabriel Sherman reported that Fox News co-president Bill Shine may be next on the chopping block as the network reacts to mounting lawsuits related to the company's culture of sexual and racial harassment. "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. "Best Sean." He followed up by tweeting #istandwithbill. And Gabe I KNOW WHO it is.

Shine was elevated to the position of co-president after Roger Ailes was ousted previous year. Ailes was accused of sexual harassment by former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson, then removed after the company started an internal probe into the matter and found other salacious allegations, all of which the executive denied. Ditto for Bill O'Reilly and, if Gabe Sherman is right, Bill Shine is next.

'I pray this is NOT true because if it is, that's the total end of the FNC as we know it. Fox News continues to be the most-watched cable news network and is typically among the leaders in all of cable, not just news.
