Another major company drops advertisements on Sean Hannity show

Although Fox News’ Sean Hannity appeared to revel in his fans boycotting Kuerig and destroying their products, it didn’t prevent another major company from similarly dropping their ads from his show. It’s auto maker Volvo.

Why did they drop Hannity?

While the company didn’t put out a statement clarifying the reason behind their decision, they announced the decision on social media in response to a campaign orchestrated by left-wing activist organization Media Matters.

Angelo Carusone, the president of Media Matters, applauded the announcement from Volvo on his social media account. Media Matters had targeted Hannity for pushing the conspiracy theory over the death of DNC employee Seth Rich in May. They reignited their campaign when Hannity had Roy Moore on his radio show to defend himself against sexual harassment accusations.

“We have spoken with our media agency and have advised them to cease advertising on the show,” the Volvo Car USA account tweeted.

The Keurig boycott

Prior to Volvo’s announcement, Media Matters’ campaign had persuaded Kuerig to drop their advertisements until an online social media boycott caught their attention. They have since walked back their statement about dropping their Hannity ads.

The O’Reilly connection

In April, Glenn Beck obtained a document which appeared to link the campaign to fire Bill O’Reilly from Fox News because of sexual harassment claims against him, with Media Matters and Hillary Clinton. Carusone commented on that campaign as well.

BTW, media buyers/advertisers recognize problem of sexual harassment at Fox News and w/O’Reilly. Many expect more women will come forward.

Didn’t get chance to say this on air: Bill O’Reilly won’t be the only one to get fired. Fox News co-president Bill Shine will go too.

Bill Shine resigned the next month.
