The mainstream media has been pushing a conspiracy theory about Russia and the election since November. Yet now Sean Hannity is being targeted for pushing “conspiracies” about the death of DNC worker Seth Rich.
The left is systematically using the same method they used to get O’Reilly off the air by targeting his advertisers. It’s the exact same playbook.
It Begins: Hannity Loses First Advertiser Following Seth Rich Controversy
Following nearly a week of publicizing a debunked conspiracy theory on the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich, Fox News host Sean Hannity has seen his first advertiser flee.
According to BuzzFeed, Cars.com has pulled its advertising from Hannity following his recent pushing of the conspiracy.
Below is the statement provided to BuzzFeed:
“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.
The left won’t be happy until there are no more conservative voices on television.
This is a war over who controls the narrative.
