Report: New White House communications chief Bill Shine used his Fox News expertise on President Trump's Supreme Court announcement
“Shine brought in all new lights,” a person briefed on the production tells Fox News expert Gabriel Sherman. “He gave Trump what’s called a ‘downlight.’ Trump’s a little fat, but that made him look younger.” Sherman also reports that Shine, the former Fox News executive who was ousted for allegedly facilitating sexual harassment at the cable news network, rewarded Sean Hannity by timing Monday's announcement to the beginning of the Hannity show at 9 p.m. ET. Thanks to the announcement, Hannity beat The Bachelorette to become Monday's most-watched show with 5.82 million viewers.
