Good for Sean!
This is from 2006. Why post it now?
I stopped listening to Sean months ago.
I got tired of him telling us over and over that we had only 3 choices in the presidential race, and that all the guys not on his list ought to go away.
That, and Fox News blacklisting some of the candidates, was enough for me to tune them out. They are nothing but shills for the RINO’s.
Due to his recent statements on fox.
I stopped when he began the disgusting country music introductory.
Me, too! Rants with facts often incorrect, exaggerated or outdated. He and his TV show dim partner can go away and stay away. Both are using up good oxygen.
He has to remind us several time on every broadcast (radio AND tv) how long he has been on the air.
ENOUGH! We’ve got it, already! 20+ years.
Yes, and the obnoxious, empty platitudes” “You;re a great American. Yeah, your’re a great American, greetings.”
How on earth could anyone know that a stranger on the other end of the phone line is a “great American” or not?
Wait a sec..I thought Sean said that “He’s never had anything to do with Bain Capital”...
Bwah....This proves what he’s been saying is a load of crap. I’ll bet you that those 80 radio stations are in some of the nation’s largest media markets....and I’m sure Clear Channel (controlled by Bain Capital) is paying Sean a nice price to be on their stations...
Follow the money people..follow the money...
Waste of money.dont listen anymore
I stopped listening to him for the same reasons. No class, no facts, and often almost hit the screech level. A panic monger and a highbinder.
Sean’s one of my favorite talk show hosts-i listen almost every weekday-usually very informative.That being said,i must comment that it got really trite listening to him incessantly promote(bordered on slathering)RudyG ie:what a great job he did as mayor of NYC,and what a great pres he’d be.To be fair-he did have Fred and Mitt on a couple times,but obviously he preffered Rudy.
(musical intro fading).....cue Sean
Hey folks - unbelievable - great show we’ve got for you today. Tons of guests. I do not know how we’re going to get all of it in today.
Can you believe these liberals? Hoo boy.
But first let me tell you about what’s coming up on Hannity & Colmes tonight on the Fox News Channel.
Oh shoot - we’ve got a hard break here but when we come back I’ll actually start the show.
OK we’re back. Folks I’m telling you it is nuts out there. We’re going to get to your phone calls I promise but I have to tell you about (insert vanity project here).
OK - don’t forget to watch Hannity & Colmes tonight.
I want to get to my guest and then your phone calls and..
What? Oh - sorry the show’s run out of time. See you tomorrow.
LOL his show’s got a low CNR (Content to Noise Ratio).
Sean's show is owned by ABC networks and is distributed by them.
The Contract for Seans show is not with Sean it is with ABC. Sean is an employee of ABC. Sean didn't sign a contract with anyone but ABC.
Clear Channel's bigest stockholders are its founders the Mays familty from San Antonio Texas. Clear Channel lets its 1200 program directors program its stations.
By the way Clear Channel pays no money for airing the Sean Hannity Show. ABC retains the rights to 5 minutes of commerical content per hour in Seans show. ABC then sells that time, inserts the commericals into Seans show and the stations carrying Sean air the show and the network commericals. ABC gets the money from the commericals it airs in his show and a portion of that money is what pays Seans Salary. Sean has to negotiate with ABC to get a raise in salary.
On the other hand the backers of Rush's show were fearful it would not do well so they made him a deal. A small salary and half the profits of the show. Last year half the profits was about 150 million dollars.
Seans earnings for a year is less than Rush's earnings for a week.
