NEW YORK (AP) — For Sean Hannity, the "witch hunt" is finally over. Rachel Maddow considers it the start of something.

The diametrically opposed opinion hosts vie for the distinction of most popular in cable news. And on Friday, they were the windows through which many Americans took in the news that special counsel Robert Mueller had concluded a nearly two-year investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 election.

Fox News Channel's Hannity says reports that there will be no additional indictments prove the probe was all a hoax.

MSNBC's Maddow says there is much more to learn. She didn't mention the lack of indictments until 16 minutes into her show.
