Hannity Before All Else

A Politico article shows the power of big media powerhouses. When Ted Cruz and Rand Paul announced their presidential candidacies, on both days reporters were told to hold off publishing their interviews until 10 p.m. This is because big man Sean Hannity's Fox News show airs at 10 and Cruz and Paul both pinky swore their rights to their first interviews to Hannity. Fun fact is that Hannity is the second-most popular talk radio host after Rush Limbaugh.

It's interesting to see how the popularity of a single reporter can affect the flow of information...
