There’s been a lot of controversy in media lately as Sean Hannity has become a target for the left.
One of his advertisers dropped him but now is coming back.

USAA Backtracks, Will Resume Advertisements on ‘Hannity’
The Associated Press (AP) reported on Tuesday afternoon that, after severe backlash from conservatives and military supporters, the military financial services organization USAA will resume showing advertisements on conservative talk radio host Sean Hannity’s Fox News Channel show.
“The USAA financial services firm says it is reinstating its advertising on Sean Hannity’s Fox News Channel program after receiving heavy criticism from many of the military members and veterans that it serves,” the AP wrote.
In response, Media Research Center president Brent Bozell declared: “It goes without saying that USAA has not experienced this kind of customer outrage in its entire history.”…
The Media Research Center’s Tim Graham wrote on Friday that this claim that they had advertised on “opinion shows” in error was dubious at best. USAA had prominently advertised on the eponymous shows of MSNBC pundits Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O’Donnell.
Here’s more from the AP story on the announcement:
USAA was one of 10 companies that had pulled ads from “Hannity,” who had been attacked for reporting a discredited story involving the death of a Democratic National Committee staff member. Hannity has said he will no longer talk about conspiracy theories on Seth Rich’s death last year.
USAA said it is continuing the commercials while reviewing its overall advertising policy.
One simple way to deal with this is for the left to just ignore shows they don’t like but that’s nearly impossible for them. They want to silence people with whom they disagree.
