From the December 14 edition of Premiere Radio Networks' The Sean Hannity Show:

BILL O'REILLY: Donald Trump is not a standard issue politician and the establishment in Washington hates him because if he's successful that opens the door to other non-traditional politicians to achieve power. 

...

MSNBC makes it's money on liberal people, and to be fair Fox makes its money on conservative people. So that's where their programming goes. But lost in all of this is the individual search for truth. Donald Trump, every single day of his life has to face accusations. Both you and I have to face them as well and you know how debilitating they are psychologically and emotionally. And the tactic is break him and if we can't break him emotionally, then we'll make it so that he can't win reelection. That is the media tactic. It doesn't matter what's true. It's the allegation du jour.

...

SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Ask me what I do for a living and I will say I am a talk show host. Now, part of being a talk show host as you know is there are days I report news straight up and down if it's a war, if it's a hurricane, if it's some type of violent protest, I'm right down the middle, throwing to reporters, asking objective questions. Other times we do investigative reporting. I think we did a pretty good job vetting Obama when very few would, exposing the deep state when others ignored these important issues, this abuse of power. I give very strong opinion, that's part of being a talk show host, sometimes we talk about sports, sometimes we do pop culture. But at the end of the day what I do as the entire newspaper.

...

O'REILLY: I'm worried about Trump himself, I'm worried about the human being. I mean how much can you take? Because you know the toll it's taken on you, I know the toll it's taken on me to be hated and attacked every single day.
