The liberal “buycott” machine went into motion over the weekend pressuring at least five advertisers to flee a popular Fox News show because Alabama Senator Roy Moore appeared on it to give his point-of-view on recent allegations of sexual misconduct.
Keurig, Realtor.com, 23 and Me, Eloquii and Nature’s Bounty all pulled their ads from the television show, in response to Fox host Sean Hannity’s coverage of the sexual misconduct allegations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore.
Angelo, thank you for your concern and for bringing this to our attention. We worked with our media partner and FOX news to stop our ad from airing during the Sean Hannity Show.

Other advertisers, including E-Trade, also pulled advertisements after the progressive-activist Media Matters pressured them.
Hannity did not defend Moore in the interview. The host asked hard-hitting questions and let the candidate answer them. It was up to the audience to decide if Moore was telling the truth or not, but that’s not good enough for the foaming-at-the-mount anti-Conservative mob at Media Matters:
While Hannity did provide a bare minimum amount of due diligence by asking Moore to answer specific questions about the allegations in the Post’s report, he failed to hold Moore to account for his answers…
Throwing my Keurig unit and all the coffee in the trash was the first thing I did today after getting back to London where I base. @seanhannity made it very clear he was NOT defending Moore…and his exclusive interview was not to clear him BUT to interrogate him thoroughly.

So Keurig and e-Trade dropped Hannity because he didn’t ask good follow-up questions? Bologna. They pulled their ads because they felt pressure from a small, but very vocal, activist liberal faction. The coffee-maker manufacturer and others have pronounced Roy Moore guilty until proven innocent. J’accuse might have gotten your head chopped off in the French Revolution, but this is America! Liberals have defended the Clintons from every sexual, criminal and unethical allegation, but not Moore. No. It’s “off with your head” for the left-wing extremists.
Caruso has been on a militant anti-Fox News bender. His teeth-gnashing, sneering, hateful social media posts have lately been chock-full of rage against Hannity. Now he’s going after all of the show’s sponsors.
Your participation matters. Here's the list of the companies that financially support @seanhannity's bigotry, lies and attacks on women who speak out against sexual misconduct: https://t.co/t8qllogMIi

Actions have consequences and the companies that have convicted Hannity will soon understand why other advertisers avoid making foolish political statements with their advertising dollars.
@Keurig I had no idea you were so political. I thought you just made coffee makers. Why won't you support @seanhannity and others who care about America? I'm going to get ride of my keurig and find a different coffee maker. #BoycottKeurig

Yes of course. Frankly accusations from 40 yrs ago. Guilty. Where's the justice? Innocent until proven guilty please! All the Clinton's crap & this is justice? No! Hell no!#IStandWithHannity #BoycottKeurig https://t.co/sOCEQ8shEj

And last, but not least, an honest assessment of why no one should have bought one of these awful coffee makers in the first place:
I dunno about all this #BoycottKeurig shit but we all gotta admit that though Keurig makes a MUCH easier cup of coffee, it’s nowhere near as flavorful as a traditional coffee maker. Keurig basically makes coffee-flavored water.
