Hannity in New Time Slot Debut: ‘Tonight Begins a New Chapter in the Cable News Wars’

Sean Hannity kicked off his 9 pm debut tonight by saying, “Tonight begins a new chapter in the cable news wars.”

Cable news junkies might remember that Hannity actually was in the 9 pm slot for a while until a primetime shakeup a few years ago. But now that he’s back at 9, Hannity laid out a mission statement for what he wants to do with his program going forward.

He railed against the Democrats and the liberal media, saying that he wants to be “offering solutions on a regular basis” for the forgotten men and women of America.

Hannity said there are a lot of people in the media who want him to “fail” and to “silence” him, saying, “I’m not doing the show for media critics, I never will. I am doing this show for all of you and the forgotten men and women in this country.”
