Has Hannity Lost His Clout With The White House?

Reported by Deborah - June 8, 2005

Cavuto, all flushed with the success of getting an exclusive interview with George W. Bush, made an appearance on H&C tonight to share his awe and wonder of such a momentus experience.As Melanie reported tonight, the interview held no surprises and was essentially an opportunity to repair Bush's crumbling image.

Hannity had the last interview with GW during the campaign when he was the White House golden messenger boy of the moment. Now Hannity's moment may be over and there was an edge to his tone tonight when he congratulated Cavuto saying that the interview "was quite a coup".

The conversation between Hannity and Cavuto took viewers back to the days of the campaign. We heard the Bush keywords like upbeat, likable, Reagan-like, driven and resolute. Then Cavuto did the routine about Bush not being driven by polls and of course, he mentioned his religion and belief that "he is here now for a reason".

comment: Not too long ago, Hannity was the White House's first stop when they needed to send a message. A lot has happened since the election and Hannity has been tarnished by his over the top coverage of the Swift Boat Vets, Terri Schiavo, and most recently the Minute Men.
Hannity's relentless battering of the Clintons probably didn't help much either. Tonight Hannity had to be satisfied with constant repeats of he and Rosie O'Donnell while Cavuto got to travel around to all the Fox shows with his big interview. Sooo sad!
