Fox News' Hannity Fights Back, Rallies Reverse Boycott Of Keurig Brand

Fox News' Hannity Fights Back, Rallies Reverse Boycott Of Keurig Brand

MMFA's "Stop Sean Hannity" campaign prominently featured a list of all of Hannity's advertisers and warned the companies that they "will get burned if they continue to associate with Hannity". During a speech in September 2016, Clinton said, "You could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables". The hashtag #standwithannity and the variant #istandwithhannity, #boycottkeurig, and #keurig are among the top trending hashtags promoted by these accounts.

"Thank you for your concern and for bringing this to our attention", Keurig wrote on Twitter to Media Matters for America president Angelo Carusone.

Keurig is among five U.S. firms that said they would pull ads from The Sean Hannity Show after the host was accused of going easy on an alleged abuser.

The coffee brand publicly announced its decision to cut advertising on Sean Hannity's show over the weekend.

The 55-year-old has even promised to give away 500 coffee machines to replace those from Keurig which have been destroyed. It is unclear if the angry "Hannity" fans are a large enough group to hurt the company's coffee sales. She told The Post that Moore took her to his house and touched her sexually. Three other women said he dated or asked them out on dates when they were teens and he was in his early 30s.

"I am humbled and speechless and frankly laughing my ass off", Hannity said in a tweet. Moore has vehemently and repeatedly denied the allegations. (It's hard to imagine any were frugal enough to wait till they ran out of K-cups to chuck their coffee makers out the window, though.) While Hannity fans work out their frustrations on a machine they'll probably miss later, "The unstated promise is that you'd have no more need for any future Keurig products of any sort", Glickman rightly notes. Guilty. Where's the justice?

"Thank you, @Keurig, for doing the right thing and pulling your ads from Hannity's show". It came as left-wing media watchdog Media Matters urged critics to pressure sponsors to pull their ads. District of Columbia police say Rich died in a botched robbery near his home in Washington previous year.

The host's handling of the news coverage received backlash online, and prompted Keurig along with five other sponsors to pull their ads. Gamgort reminded staffers that the company advertises on all the major cable channels, rather than just Fox News. The Murdochs decided that if new accusations emerged, the ongoing publicity would make O'Reilly "untenable in advertisers' eyes", The Post's Paul Farhi reported.
