The news about Sean Hannity doesn’t get much traction at Fox

Much of the media world scrambled to cover the revelation this week that the congressional committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection is seeking the cooperation of Fox News host Sean Hannity. But his employer wasn’t part of that rush.

The unexpected request — revealed by the committee Tuesday along with text messages Hannity sent to President Donald Trump’s aides last year expressing concern before the riot about the White House’s plans for that day — generated a flood of news articles as well as hours of panel discussions and analysis on Fox News’s cable rivals, CNN and MSNBC.

But it was quieter on the network on which Hannity has starred for the past 25 years. Over three days, Fox News journalists collectively devoted 88 seconds to the news.

Fox News’s coverage has consisted of brief mentions during news reports hosted by anchors Bret Baier, Dana Perino and Shannon Bream, the last after midnight on Wednesday. It has offered no discussion, no interviews and no statements from Hannity.
