Fox News host Sean Hannity shocked everyone this weekend when he suggested that he doesn’t want Donald Trump to grant several major news outlets White House press credentials.
Politico reported that Hannity agreed with Twitter user J.R. McClaren, who tweeted that CNN, The New York Times, the Washington Post and other news outlets “shown to have colluded by @wikileaks” should not be given press credentials to the White House.
“Amen,” Hannity wrote about the tweet, which talked about WikiLeaks’s publication of hacked emails that showed reporters corresponding with people in the DNC and in Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
Hannity railed against the mainstream media throughout the election for the way they treated Trump. He recently doubled down on CNN, which he has always said was in the tank for Clinton, going so far as to call CNN media reporter Brian Stelter “a [Fox News] stalker.” He initially criticized Stelter for calling the aftermath of the election a “national emergency” during a CNN segment.
