Advertisers ditch Fox News’ ‘Hannity’ after Moore abuse claims

Advertisers began fleeing from Fox News’ “Hannity” following the conservative host’s much-criticized coverage of Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore’s sexual misconduct allegations.

Two companies — Realtor.com and Keurig — announced Saturday that they will no longer advertise on the show, according to The Hill.

Neither company attributed the decision to Sean Hannity’s coverage of the Moore scandal.

But they each affirmed their position in response to Twitter users complaining about Hannity’s kid-glove treatment of the GOP Senate hopeful accused of preying on younger women.

“We are adjusting our media buy to no longer include this show placement. – MS,” according to The Hill.

Keurig, meanwhile, said in a tweet to the head of the liberal group Media Matters for America that the company is pulling its ad from Hannity’s show.

“Thank you for your concern and for bringing this to our attention,” Keurig wrote. “We worked with our media partner and FOX news to stop our ad from airing during the Sean Hannity Show.”
