Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity are allegedly in talks about teaming up to join Sinclair Broadcasting. It might not happen, however, because there is reportedly some bad blood between them from their years at Fox, according to Gabriel Sherman, a fairly far-left contributor to MSNBC and an editor for New York Magazine.

Besides the lack of friendship between the two, Hannity isn’t in trouble at the moment and he’s pulling in some of the best ratings on Fox because of Trump’s tenure. Despite his popularity, there are rumors that once the Murdochs secure Sky News, Hannity is toast. James Murdoch reportedly wants Fox to become “more respectable” and more like CNN.

Gabriel Sherman is the well-connected journalist who foretold several of the events that began a transformation at Fox, including accusations against Ailes, reports of Ailes’ imminent departure, and the problems affecting O’Reilly and Bill Shine. Many believe the Murdochs talk directly to him. Sherman mentioned the possible new changes Sunday on Joy Reid’s MSNBC show and said O’Reilly is anxious to get back on air.

“My sources in and around Fox say that [Hannity] and Bill O’Reilly are potentially in talks to take their shows to Sinclair,” Sherman said. “Bill O’Reilly has wanted to get back into the game.”“So Sinclair has really wants to build the future of a conservative media empire and poaching Fox’s biggest names would help them do that,” he explained. “This, again, is the groundwork for what I think will be the next conservative media platform in the post-Roger Ailes era.”

Sherman has been tweeting about it since the show. He added that O’Reilly is also in talks with Newsmax TV. But, Sinclair will have a very broad reach.It is believed Trump gave them the go-ahead to buy the Tribune holdings.

Sherman led the gossip and some factual stories about Roger Ailes and what many believe was an overly-hyped lawsuit by Gretchen Carlson. Ailes was said to have blamed Sherman for attempting to take him down and Fox.

The tweets Sherman put out received very negative responses from his readers, many want to know how to stop Sinclair. They don’t believe conservatives should be allowed to have a network or any voice in the public sphere. It’s particularly odd since they would never watch those shows. It doesn’t affect them unless they’re into thought control over the general populace.
