Hannity defends Fox News president Shine amid report

Shine's reported request followed weeks of intense scrutiny of the network after the recent ousting of Fox's most popular host, Bill O'Reilly, amid a sexual harassment scandal.

The tweet came in response to a Daily Intelligencerstory in NY magazine that suggested Bill Shine - the co-president of Fox News - may be losing support among the network brass and could be on his way out.

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 also said that if Shine is let go, "that's the total end of the FNC as we know it". His promotion to co-president of Fox News last fall has raised questions about how the Murdochs, who run parent company 21st Century Fox, have made a decision to handle the network. Since Ailes's ouster, the network has been run in part by co-president Bill Shine, a longtime executive who has received support from the Murdochs.

But privately, Shine is expressing concern about his future at the network. 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. In July, former Fox News chief Roger Ailes was sacked over his own sexual-harassment scandal. "I think the rank and file believe he will be replaced, but who knows?" this person said. But life at Fox News is not back to normal. "Done. Best Sean", he wrote on Twitter, later apologizing for the typo.
