That smashing sound you hear is thousands of Keurig coffee makers being destroyed by angry Sean Hannity fans. Their protest is in reaction to another attempt by the left to knock the knees out from under conservative television pundits. Sean Hannity is the latest target of such attacks.
The New York Times has the story:
On Thursday, the Fox News host spoke about the allegations against Roy Moore, the Alabama senate candidate who, The Washington Post had reported that day, made sexual advances toward teenage girls when he was in his early 30s, including a 14-year-old.
Mr. Hannity, describing those actions on his radio show while speaking with a co-host, Lynda McLaughlin, seemed to justify Mr. Moore’s reported conduct by calling one of the encounters “consensual.”
Liberals are offended by this video of a Keurig being thrown off of a building.

Later, on his television show, Mr. Hannity said that the statement “was absolutely wrong” and that he “misspoke.” He then brought up the possibility of accusers lying for money, or for political purposes.
On Friday, Angelo Carusone, the president of Media Matters for America, the partisan watchdog organization that has campaigned against Mr. Hannity since at least May, began to criticize advertisers for sponsoring his show in light of his comments about Mr. Moore.
Keurig responded to Mr. Carusone, and said that it had stopped an ad from airing during Mr. Hannity’s show. It was one of five companies to indicate that it would pull advertising, including Realtor.com and the vitamin company Nature’s Bounty.
And thus, the destroying of coffee makers and calls for boycotts ensued. What do you think? A liberal hit job?
