Hannity's freak out is over New York Magazine's Gabriel Sherman saying on Twitter that Shine may not have the support of the Murdochs. (This is the one about racial discrimination, not sexual harassment, for those playing along at home.) NY magazine reported sources claiming that Shine asked the younger Murdochs to issue a statement of support for him, and was flatly turned down.

The chaos continues within the subterranean Fox News bunker as executives, anchors, and staffers grapple with the continuing fallout of the network's ongoing sexual-harassment scandal.

The wheels are coming off the wagon at Fox News. Shine was promoted to co-president and head of news and programming in August, a position he stands accused of using to demote women who refused Ailes's sexual advances. He also tweeted: "I pray this is NOT true because if it is, that's the total end of the FNC as we know it. Done".

Literally the only remaining member of the primetime line-up of this time previous year, Hannity's high stakes remarks and sharp elbows behind the scenes come with an added edge now. "Done. Best Sean", he wrote on Twitter, later apologizing for the typo.

Hannity declined to say who within the company might be trying to smear Shine, but he offered up a hashtag in support.

In response to a report by New York Magazine's Gabriel Sherman which said that Shine is anxious he may lose his job, Hannity tweeted, "Gabe I pray this is NOT true because if it is, that's the total end of the FNC as we know it. Done". And Gabe I KNOW WHO it is.

The billion-dollar question hanging over Fox News is who knew what, and when. Shine and Abernethy were appointed by Murdoch to take over as network co-presidents after Ailes' departure. "I'll change it. #Istandwithshine", he added.

Shine was one of several executives mentioned in a class-action lawsuit filed Tuesday by 11 former and current Fox News employees and contributors claiming racial discrimination within the company.
