While not everyone was in favor of the proposed show, Conservative American TV and radio host Sean Hannity described the show as a "great idea" and even offered to allow Assange take over his job for a day. "If you would like to fill in for me one day I am on over 550 stations and 14 plus million listeners,” he tweeted.
Replying to Hannity's offer, Assange responded: "Great! Now if only MSNBC et al had the same courage to have people host they don't always agree with!"
He also told CNN that he's "looking into" ways of guest hosting the show.
