Color CNN's Brian Stelter unimpressed.

On Monday, Fox News confirmed that host Sean Hannity is having a sit-down interview with President Trump while he's in Singapore for the summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Considering Trump and Hannity are close and reportedly even talk before going to bed, Stelter noted on Twitter that this isn't that big of a coup. "If you're talking with your biggest supporter on TV, an informal adviser to your [White House], someone who's been called your 'shadow chief of staff,' someone you've shared a lawyer with ... is it really an 'interview?' Maybe a 'chat among friends?'"
