Bashing President Donald Trump is good for ratings, but Fox News’ Sean Hannity has proven that the president can also be a ratings boon when given positive coverage.
Having played second fiddle to Bill O’Reilly for so many years, before being bumped to the 10 p.m. time slot, Hannity is now back to his 9 p.m. slot and atop the ratings game.
An outcome that preempted the left’s early celebration of MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow as heir apparent to O’Reilly’s top-rated cable news program perch.

Much like Trump, Hannity’s hard-hitting approach to countering the liberal media seems to be paying dividends.
This approach was seen on Hannity’s Twitter feed Friday when he offered a theory on CNN reporting that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation has yielded its first indictment.
According to Hannity, Mueller and the liberal media are “working hand in hand.”
The Fox News host suggested the indictment story is a distraction to cover up for a “HORRIBLE week” Mueller and the Democratic Party had because of the Fusion GPS dossier and Uranium One stories that broke last week.
As The Blaze noted, a CNN reporter said Friday that in typical cases, the person being indicted and their counsel are quickly informed of the indictment.
…but the person expected to be charged didn’t know of the grand jury’s decision.
All of which prompted this question from Hannity:
