In his opening monologue tonight, Sean Hannity reacted to President-elect Donald Trump's news conference, calling it "the single greatest beat down of the alt-left, abusively biased mainstream media in the history of the country."

Hannity praised the president-elect for going after CNN and BuzzFeed over their unsubstantiated coverage of Trump's deep ties with Russia.

He said the media going after Trump with unverified reports shows once again that journalism in America is dead.

"Do you remember any instance where Barack Obama was treated like this by the left-wing media?" Hannity asked.

He said that the president-elect should be prepared for increasingly hostile attacks from the "dishonest press" throughout his presidency.

"My advice tonight for the president-elect: You've got to ignore these people in the press. If that's how they're going to treat you, then they don't deserve all the access they think they deserve."
