I've been saying this for months. Conservative radio host John Ziegler accuses Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, and even Matt Drudge, of supporting the unelectable Donald Trump in order to keep up ratings.

"Liberals are going to be very happy with what Sean Hannity did in his own self-interest."

Ziegler is telling the truth. Everyone on the conservative media side wants a Hillary Clinton presidency, so they can rail against her with hours of the Hillary Hate conspiracy theories that their audience craves:

Let's face it, the conservative media wins no matter what now. If it's Trump versus Hillary, everybody's going to get great ratings during the Fall. I believe Trump will lose to Hillary, that gives at least four more years of easy content for the conservative media.

Look, the conservative media supposedly campaigned against Obama, but nobody made more money, in the Obama administration, other than maybe gun manufacturers, than Fox News Channel and Matt Drudge.

I've been saying since at least February that conservative media desperately needs a Democrat in the White House in order to survive the next four years. Without hate, grieveances, and a bunker mentality, they can't maintain an audience. Hugh Hewitt can whine all he wants about the Supreme Court and "our national defense," but if a Republican is in the White House, even Trump, what will he have to talk about on his show? Melania's dresses? Much better for him and the other AM radio Conservo-jocks that they have fake Hillary Clinton scandals to scream over the airwaves.
