Hannity Implodes


New York Daily News: "In a fitting coda to 2012, we've learned that the ratings for rock-ribbed conservative Sean Hannity cratered after Barack Obama won his second term, with viewers tuning out the Fox News Channel talk-show host in droves."

"According to Nielsen numbers, Hannity lost around half of his audience in the weeks after the election, while his Fox News colleague Bill O'Reilly -- who steadfastly refuses to identify himself politically as a conservative -- retained around 70% of his audience."

but he hides behind the "Independent" label out of embarrassment for his ideology.

40. Same with Lou Dobbs

The only network that will have them is Faux, and virtually every single speaking point they have mirrors every other conservative pundit, but they would have people believe that they aren't conservatives. Very telling that.

since Pres Obama won re-election that the original audience would keep tuning in for the Hate Fest?

7. I'm surprised too, but it makes sense in a way.

They were lied to - Hannity, Rush, Rove and all of the other Rainmen mumbling about "Romney blowout: 310, 322" for all of October.

Watching conservative boards back in 2011 and early 2012 - many of these people though the Teahadists had it wrapped up after Nov 2010. A clear message was sent in Nov 2012, that they are in a bubble of wishful thinking and out of step with the majority of the country and never saw it coming, mind boggling as that is..

My guess is that they may or may not recognize that they have had smoke blown up their collective skirts from the Faux crowd - but either way, they are burned out on politics in general and tuning out.

No one likes being lied to. No one likes being suckered. No one can long tolerate whiney wankers.

Thus, Hannity, Felafel Boy, Rush and their ilk are toast...

20. Couldn't be happier! Hannity is Chief of Lobotomy at the Limbaugh Institute of Conservative Studies

This guy is simply unwatchable and listening to him regurgitate the SAME thing over and over again is intolerable. It's the same "radical leftist -insert name- has -insert event- to damage America. Or the CONSTANT "Great American" circle jerk.

Add in the fact Hannity is responsible of giving us the guy that sounds like a Castrated Beldar Conehead (Mark Levin); he deserves this slow descent into irrelevance. Couldn't have happened to a "Greater American"

21. I can't say I'm surprised by this.

A lot of the wingnut wackadoodles are pretty burned out on politics right now. They're also extremely disillusioned, especially after people like Hannity sold them a bill of goods that the 2012 election was in the tank for Romney.....a guaranteed victory.

No one likes having smoke blown up their backside, even the Teahadis. It seems like some of them have figured out they were suckered by Hannity, Rove, Dick Morris, etc.

23. I can't express how much I'm shocked to hear this.

You'd think that with PBO winning re-election, the Republicans would be craving an outlet to turn to every night to vent their frustration. It really couldn't have happened to a much nicer guy than Hannity. This is what he deserves for his fear-mongering with the so-called New Black Panther Party and shilling for the R&R boys. Let's see if this is a good omen for America to get back on the correct path again.

In my mind's eye there is a big Hannity-shaped balloon, the rubber band has been removed from the valve, and the deflating blobbus scuds around in lowering and wobbly circles, with the expected attendant sound effects. . .

34. I'm still in shock that O'Reilly even has a career

He started his career in my town, he's not the brightest light in the string, he never was particularly political here and was kind of a jerk nobody liked much. Just another opportunist asshat w/o a soul trying to get rich, I doubt he really cares. If the tides change he could have a conversion to being a lib in a heartbeat, IMO.
