As advertisers flee, panicked Hannity launches pathetic ugly smear against boycott leader

https://shareblue.com/as-advertisers-flee-panicked-hannity-launches-pathetic-ugly-smear-against-boycott-leader/

Instead of calming nervous advertisers, Sean Hannity's wild attacks on his critics will likely prompt more brands to flee his show.

Flailing wildly on his program Monday night, Fox News host Sean Hannity desperately tried to slow the advertising exodus that has gripped his program in recent days.

Specifically, Hannity launched a 20-minute tirade against Media Matters, which has been leading a campaign to contact Hannity’s advertisers to urge them to stop supporting his toxic program.

The latest push to persuade advertisers came after Hannity suggested some of Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore’s accusers in Alabama might be lying about their claims he pursued them sexually when he was in his 30s and they were in their teens. Hannity also suggested some women might be lying in order to make money off their claims.

The campaign is working, as Hannity has lost nearly a dozen advertisers, including Hebrew National, ReddiWip, Marie Callender’s, Volvo, HelloFresh, Hubble Contacts, UNTUCKit, Volvo, the Society for Human Resource Management, Cadillac, and E-Trade.

News that Keurig was withdrawing its sponsorship of the program outraged Hannity fans, who launched their own bizarre “boycott,” by destroying their $120 Keurig coffee makers in protest.

Note that Fox saw its advertising revenue plummet 17 percent in September, compared to September 2016 — and that was before its primetime host started defending an alleged child molester.


Oh yeah, it is a beautiful day that warms the soul. Hit them where it really hurts, in their revenue streams.

The psychology of smashing $120 coffee machines because the company opposed child molestation is simply

I might pick up some Green Mountain K cups for my office machine even though I don't want to drink it. I'll share it with my coworkers.

2. The year over year comparison is a foolish inclusion

Things in september 2016 are vastly different from september 2017 and it occurs every freakin' election cycle. But it's painted as though things are terrible because of it when it's just a normal thing.

4. Hmmm

What do the nut jobs plan to do to their whipped cream? Sine they’re gonna toss their Marie Callender pies they won’t need the whipped cream, I guess. I doubt they buy Hebrew national hotdogs, being Jewish food and all. Do nut jobs own Volvos? Sure would love to see them torch their cars.

Maybe they turn on Hannity for allowing Jew food to be advertised on his show is he a secret Jew lover?

6. Cadillac and E-trade though?

I feel like wealthy conservatives should go out and buy a nice new Caddy and smash it on video in protest.

E-Trade investors will lose money when Trump crashes the economy anyway.

7. Is there any good news anywhere for any "conservative?"

It seems that maybe their well earned comeuppance is at hand.
