Advertisers Pull Ads From Sean Hannity’s Fox News Show

Companies started pulling advertisements from Sean Hannity’s Fox News show on Wednesday as he continued promoting a conspiracy theory about Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich’s death. Cars.com, the automotive classifieds site, was the first to release a statement on its decision to remove ads. “The fact that we advertise on a particular program doesn’t mean that we agree or disagree, or support or oppose, the content.

David Hogg just won his first major victory against Fox News

The modern Republican Party thrives on lies and cruelty. They make their arguments in bad faith, with nothing but their own profit and power in mind. It’s this toxic ethos that has led to their recent, inexcusable mistreatment survivors of the horrific Parkland school shooting. After their teachers and classmates were brutally gunned down by a shooter wielding an AR-15-style rifle, the students became activists pushing for immediate, meaningful gun reform.

Apparently, she and her NRA-beholden bosses are so worried about the Parkland teens…
