STEVEN D'SOUZA: Sean Hannity is an unabashed cheerleader for Donald Trump at a time when headlines are dominated by Trump and the Russian scandal, Hannity's primetime show on Fox News is a safe space for Trump supporters, where Hannity parrots Trump's attacks on the media and diverts attention to other issues.
The statement came as Angelo Carusone's organization posted a list of Hannity's advertisers. A similar campaign led to dozens of advertisers abandoning Bill O'Reilly, who was eventually let go.
