Fox News merges with Trump White House

Fox News has officially become State Run Media

'Special Guest' Sean Hannity to appear at Trump rally

(CNN) Fox News is apparently allowing host Sean Hannity to appear as a "special guest" at President Donald Trump's final rally of the midterm season.

Hannity's involvement was promoted in a Trump campaign press release on Sunday afternoon. Rush Limbaugh will also be there, the campaign said, promising "special guest appearances" by both men at the rally in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.

Monday's rally plan reaffirms how the Trump White House and parts of the conservative media ecosystem have effectively merged. Many Trump fans have cheered this development, but it opens up Hannity and Limbaugh to criticism. After all, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow was never a "special guest" at a Barack Obama speech. Fox's Bill O'Reilly was never a "special guest" at a George W. Bush event.

We live in a time in which decent and otherwise sensible people are surrendering too easily to the hectoring of morons or extremists.
