Five major companies have decided to distance themselves from Fox News’ Sean Hannity show for his support for Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore.
Media Matters have received confirmations from 23andme, ELOQUII, Keurig, Nature’s Bounty, and realtor.com on their decision to pull ads from Hannity’s show.
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.

On Thursday, Hannity claimed that Moore’s accusers were lying and that they were doing it for money. Hannity stated, “Here’s some really fascinating questions. How do you know if it’s true? How do we — what’s true? What’s not true? How do you ascertain the truth? What happens when it’s 38 years later? It’s a serious topic, and — because if it’s true and people act like this, it’s disgusting, it’s despicable, it’s criminal.”
He continued, “This goes back to what you said. Do people do it for money, do they do it political reasons? How come — is that more common than people would think?..They will lie to make money.”
He also added that he thinks it’s a “he said, she said” situation. Hannity asserted, “But then also, are there false allegations? And when it’s ‘he said, she said’ or whatever, how do you tell the difference?”
He then tried to use the Ten Commandments from the Bible saying, “We do have Ten Commandments. One of the commandments is ‘thou shalt not bear false witness.’ We know human beings break, with regularity, the other nine commandments. Did they break this one?”
On Friday, Sean Hannity interviewed Roy Moore on his radio show, where Moore denied the accusations of sexual encounters with a 14-year-old girl when he was 32.
