Popular Fox New host Sean Hannity wants his ex-colleague Bill O’Reilly to make a return to Fox News.
“We’ve been attacked for more than 20 years, each of us has,” O’Reilly said.
Hannity opined that it was 24 years “to be exact” and made this head-shaking statement: “By the way, I keep offering you, go back on Fox.”
“Why would I want to do that?” O’Reilly replied. “So I can have security guards go with me everywhere, like I used to?”
Answered Hannity: “No, so that you take the No. 1 slot. I can tell you it’s easier being No. 2. … We’ll end the year again No. 1 in all of cable, and with that comes all the crap associated with it.”
Said O’Reilly: “Your listeners should understand there is a price to pay for being a traditional conservative American in this country.”
