On his Wednesday radio show, Sean Hannity, host of the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” hinted at the possibility that he has knowledge of left-wing activist organization Media Matters dealing with the Obama White House.

According to Hannity, there has been a shift from President Barack Obama’s persona during the 2008 presidential election to the Obama’s persona in the 2012 campaign, but the media has ignored it. (RELATED: More on Media Matters)

“You know this whole 2008 Obama versus 2012 Obama, you talk about a bait-and-switch,” Hannity said. “And where is your news media? Where are they doing their job? Now, thank God there’s Breitbart, there’s Drudge, there’s The Daily Caller, there’s NewsMax, there’s WorldNet. There’s still talk radio out there, you know in spite of the efforts of Media Matters and ThinkProgress. There’s still Fox News out there. We’re still here. They’ve tried their best. So far, no luck.”

On the topic of Media Matters, Hannity said he wanted more information about “secret meetings” that organization had conducted with the White House, adding that he has some inside information on the subject.

“I’d like to know more about the secret meetings they have with the White House representatives as Media Matters built their enemies list, of which I was named,” Hannity said. “I have some inside information that I can’t reveal at this moment about Media Matters and as it relates to me. Believe it or not, we have people in the White House that tell us things. And believe it or not, we have people all over the place that tell us things, on-the-inside kind of people.”

So what is that “inside information?” Hannity said he’s waiting for the right time and place to announce it.

“We’ll just wait for the right place, time, moment for such things,” he concluded. “Then we’ll discuss.”
