Since Andrew Breitbart’s passing, in my opinion, Breitbart has become an overrun site with wannabe talk show hosts and sleazy lawyers…they are like jealous sorority girls.
Savage has a legitimate gripe, insofar as Breitbart has a rooting interest in Hannity’s success.
Hannity promotes Breitbart and its reporters. Breitbart, in turn, promotes Hannity.
It’s an echo chamber, not unlike what exists on the Left w/ MSNBC and Politico.
Not surprisingly, Breitbart has tried to put the best possible spin on Hannity’s ratings decline.
Longtime listeners will note the many recent format changes:
(1) Now-almost daily appearances by “insider” Jamie Dupree.
(2) The new weekly segment with North Dakota employers.
(3) More on-air interaction with his snarky young staff– this being the most obvious sign of Hannity’s struggles.
Consultants encourage Hannity and others to engage in more “spontaneous”, “behind-the-scenes” banter with producers.
