Advertisers begin to drop Hannity hours after he warns fans he’s under coordinated attack

He predicted it could happen, it’s what they did to O’Reilly and now it’s starting.

In response to Fox News host Sean Hannity’s quest to get to the bottom of DNC staffer Seth Rich’s murder last summer, ne of his main advertisers — cars.com — decided to leave the fold, claiming its decision had nothing to do with politics.

Right — and God didn’t make little green apples either. BuzzFeed News reported:

“Cars.com’s media buy strategies are designed to reach as many consumers as possible across a wide spectrum of media channels,” a spokesperson said in a statement to BuzzFeed News when asked about Hannity’s pushing the conspiracy theory.

“The fact that we advertise on a particular program doesn’t mean that we agree or disagree, or support or oppose, the content. We don’t have the ability to influence content at the time we make our advertising purchase. In this case, we’ve been watching closely and have recently made the decision to pull our advertising from Hannity,” the company said.


Speculation that Rich’s death may have been related to his work with the Democratic Party got an enormous boost last week with a report that the DNC staffer was in contact with WikiLeaks shortly before his death.

This suggested that the information Wikileaks published that was damaging to the party came from Rich.

Although Fox News joined other media outlets in reporting this development, the network later backed off the story and even published a retraction — not Hannity, although he admitted it could affect his future at Fox.

“I retracted nothing,” the conservative FNC host said.

He can’t say he wasn’t warned about the loss of sponsorships — Glenn Beck saw former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly’s ouster as the result of a coordinated effort from the left.

Hannity observed the same thing and tweeted:

Hannity observed the difference in what left-leaning programs and outlets can get away with as opposed to conservative ones, as well as the lies being reported about him with reference to the Rich murder case.

Hannity also called out liberal organizations for publishing his list of advertisers.

But two can play at that game. A Hannity fan published a list of advertisers and their phones numbers and asked people to call and voice their support. The Fox News host voiced his appreciation for this gesture.

Cars.com, however, looks like it could be the tip of the iceberg.


Last month, sexual harassment charges against Hannity surfaced — similar to those that led to the departure of O’Reilly and the late Fox News founder and CEO Roger Ailes. They proved groundless, but it was as though liberals were picking off FNC titans one-by-one.

And they are.

If the Seth Rich controversy brings Hannity’s dismissal to fruition, it will mean the complete destruction of the long-standing Fox News primetime lineup that propelled the network to the top of cable news programming and made it unbeatable.
