    President Trump is not a conservative. And he is a long way from being a liberal/progressive. He has never been. He is neither partisan nor ideologue nor professional politician nor part of the permanent political class. He doesn't give a rat's ass about political correctness and he doesn't care who he offends with what he believes to be the truth.

    He is beholden to no political party, no particular constituency or demographic, has no monetary motives because he has more money than he will ever need for anything in his lifetime or that of his progeny. He is completely disdainful of a status quo that doesn't produce satisfactory results and "it has always been done that way" or "it has never been done that way" simply aren't in his wheel house of rules and regulations.

    He has an uncanny aptitude for recognizing the problem and what needs to happen to fix it, and he is fearless in setting objectives and going from Plan A to Plan B or Plan C etc, dealing, negotiating, enticing, until he find a way to get around obstacles and actually accomplish the goal. And he wants to actually accomplish goals and isn't into 'lip service' or 'manipulative' campaign promises that are too often put on the shelf and forgotten once a professional politician is in office.

    In my gut, even though he drives me nuts sometime with his cringeworthy remarks/tweets/FB posts etc. and even though I disagree with him on a policy matter or approach now and then, I do believe he does love America and what it stands for. And he presents and presented a vision for America and ALL Americans that nobody running for office has offered in my lifetime. He is unlike any other who has served in any important elected capacity in my lifetime.

    That he knows what kind of people will save our court system is reason enough to support him.

    Whether his motives are purely altruistic or just out of ego to see if he can make a difference, I don't know and don't care. All of it is why I and I think 60+ million others voted for him. And will most likely vote for him again.

    Hannity sees the same qualities in President Trump that I do. And I don't think either of them are going anywhere else anytime soon.

    I agree with most of what you say and I support Trump, but I am not going to get caught supporting the establishment anymore. Trump is a start and my aim is to not let people forget the ones we have the fight with are in government with him. the established, Two Partiers. Thanks Foxy.

    The Murdoch sons have their eyes on getting rid of Sean.

    Sean is criminalistic, like Trump and some of his supporters (look how many Mueller got). Criminals like criminals.

    Baloney. Sean Hannity is the flagship and highest earner for Fox News. With a very rare anomaly now and then, he consistently pulls higher ratings than ANYBODY else in cable news anywhere. And because he somehow managed to grow up without sowing any wild oats or veering off course at some point, he is pretty well bullet proof for any smear tactics. I'm pretty sure they'll give him anything he wants to keep him.

    Baloney yourself. :) Sean is a high-paid shrill, nothing more. He is so expendable. If you want a far-right accurate take on Trump, than follow Ann Coulter. The Murdochs are sharpening "you are the weakest link, Sean" axes.

    Beck and company do decent journalism on The Blaze though, but he doesn't have the staff to cover all the news. I don't trust Infowars to keep the conspiracy theories, etc. out of it and their journalism is often lacking.

    With the exception of a very few newspapers around the country and most of conservative talk radio, Fox News is the ONLY organization in the MSM who is doing decent journalism and doing their best to not spread gossip, innuendo, and flawed news that results from everybody parroting the same flawed news account somebody else put out. Fox News does get it wrong now and then, but I have never seen them defend their mistakes or fail to correct them. They are very good to get ALL the information into the story as it becomes available, they do give all points of view, and I haven't caught them deliberately putting out any fake news of any kind or omitting extenuating factors because it doesn't fit the narrative they are pushing. I can't say that about CNN, MSNBC, PBS, ABC, NBC, CBS, Huffpo, NY Tines, WAPO etc.

    The fake news and alt facts emanate from the Trump administration to be spread by far right media.

    Yup, the GOP got fascism, for sure.

    Hannity's philosophy is fascistic, so no matter where he goes, his philosophy goes with him.

    Fox, I think, will be far better off without him.

    Drudge is an excellent website to get access to many differing opinions/news accounts on the news of the day. It is one of the most visited websites--I think a LOT of the MSM checks them every morning to see what the news story of the day is going to be since Drudge so often is on the story before pretty much anybody else. :)

    RCP (Real Clear Politics) is another excellent website providing access to a really good cross section of news and commentary and includes a good mix of pro and cons on pretty much everything that is happening.

    But for television news, Fox News really is the only source providing consistent decent journalism, i.e. providing ALL the story, doing decent fact checking, and citing on the record sources as much as possible. All the rest are presenting the narrative they want to be true and downplay, quickly skim over, and/or omit or disparage anything that doesn't further that narrative, use a lot of uncorroborated anonymous sources and such. And that is propaganda, not journalism.

    Fox is not credible in terms of 'consistent decent journalism.' It is a pit like CNN and MSNBC of propaganda for the home team. RCP and PBS are good.
