There have been new reports circling around that conservative “fat cats” are currently in the process of bringing together a new TV network, and as of right now, some big names are already in mind.
For starters, the first person that comes to our minds who also happens to be a free agent is O’Reilly, and so is Tomi Lahren.
According to Sean Hannity, Fox News boxing out Bill Shine will be the end of the network, so is it possible that a new network anchored by Hannity, Tomi Lahren and O’Reilly could give Fox News a run for its money?
We believe that it is possible.
Inside sources have been spreding rumors that Fox News has started moving a bit too far to the left with their most recent decisions which ended up leaving O’Reilly jobless, and applying pressure on Bill Shine.
The sources also added that a meeting is going to take place at any time, with two prominent high-powered television executives and some underperforming conservative networks as well as people who have an interest and the ability to fund a new network.
The aim of this whole plan is to put the old “crew” together, as there are a number of conservative powerhouses to pick from that could star on a new network.
The news came and spread fast after the New York Times painted a picture of a Fox News as a network in a changing phase, now that Murdoch’s sons James and Lachlan are slowly starting to take control of everything, aiming to get rid of the anti-politically correct environment and create a “warmer and fuzzier workplace”.
The piece struck fear into the minds of some Fox News’ hardcore conservatives with talk of the sons wanting to rid the company “of the old-guard culture on which their father built his empire” and bringing “a warmer and fuzzier workplace” that would move away from an “anti-politically correct environment.”
Reports from Thursday coming from Gabe Sherman of New York Magazine claim that “sweeping management changes” may be coming from Fox News, which could clearly be seen when Shine made a request asking the Murdoch sons to release a statement in support of him amid the whole rolling lawsuits and scandals, but he was vigorously denied. After this was made public, Hannity immediately stood up in defense of Shine.
“I just don’t see Fox News and Sean having a long relationship. If Sean becomes available, you have 100 percent turnover in primetime and a huge opportunity,” stated a television executive who demanded that his identity to not be made public.
“I’m working on it (the new conservative channel) hot and heavy,” the source said. “It’s live, it’s real.” The new channel could start working within the next 10-10 months according to the executive.
