Volvo pulls its ads from Hannity after Moore coverage

  • Sean Hannity of Fox News arrives in National Harbor Md. Hannity is getting a bruising reminder that this year's presidential campaign defies traditional political rules. The Fox News Channel and radio host had a nasty

Volvo is one of several companies, including Realtor.com and Keurig, to have pulled their ads from the show, in the wake of an online campaign by partisan campaign group Media Matters.

Under the hashtag #boycottkeurig and #IStandWithHannity fans fought back to Friday's announcement by Keurig, posting videos of themselves destroying their coffee makers.

Meanwhile, it will be interesting to see if the loss of advertising Mammon finally gets FOX to do what it would never do for the sake of truth or common decency: fire the professional liar Sean Hannity. According to a Washington Post story November 9, an Alabama woman said Moore made inappropriate advances and had sexual contact with her when she was 14.

Sean Hannity is singing a new tune after a softball interview with U.S. Senate hopeful Roy Moore on damning allegations of child molestation.

On Saturday, Keurig announced on Twitter that it would no longer advertise on Hannity's show.

Hannity said the allegations spelled out by each of the women "should be taken seriously".

After playing clips of Moore responding to the accusations, Hannity stated that Moore's answers about dating teenagers "seemed inconsistent".

In a memo to employees obtained by The Washington Post's Erik Wemple, CEO Bob Gamgort called Keurig's decision to explain its plan to "pause" its advertising with Hannity's show "highly unusual" and "outside of company protocols". It's unclear if 23 and Me and ELOQUII previously advertised on "Hannity", and the companies didn't immediately return requests for comment. By pulling their ads from Hannity's show, Volvo is sending the message that they do not want conservative drivers.

Facing an exodus of advertisers, the Fox News host gave the firebrand jurist until Wednesday night to disprove the harrowing claims of sexual misconduct five women have lodged against him. Fox News is owned by 21st Century Fox.
