'Hannity' fans destroying Keurig coffee makers to protest withdrawn ads

Six companies, including the popular beverage company Keurig, responded they are no longer advertising on Hannity. During a speech in September 2016, Clinton said, "You could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables".

You are likely aware that Keurig became the focus of some media attention over the weekend related to a tweet issued from our official Twitter account on Friday.

The coffee brand publicly announced its decision to cut advertising on Sean Hannity's show over the weekend. She told The Post that Moore took her to his house and touched her sexually.

Media Matters has been targeting Hannity's sponsors since the spring, but the latest efforts come after Hannity questioned the motives of the four women who accused Moore of propositioning them when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s, and urged against a rush to judgment on the Repbulican candidate.

Hannity jumped into the social media fray Sunday and said he would buy 500 replacement coffeemakers from a different brand for those who destroyed their Keurig machines.

Hannity said he misspoke and his comment was misinterpreted.

Give me a chance to think about it and regroup.' Because I don't even know if I went through the seven stages of grief yet. I'm probably on step three. "With all the familiar faces and friends, it's been good to have those guys around".

Carbon emissions back on the rise
China's emissions added up to 28 percent of global emissions, which is expected to grow by 3.5 percent in 2017. The US emissions are projected to decline by 0.4% this year when its GDP will grow by about 2.2%.

Indian students in United States doubled in last decade
The top states all saw an increase this year. "This may be a good wake-up call for some schools to review their approach". While overall fresh enrolment has fallen, the number of worldwide students studying on American campuses has increased.

Meanwhile, Moore has said the allegations against him are "fake news", and that a lawsuit will be filed over the Washington Post report that detailed alleged incidents. One woman, Leigh Corfman, told The Post that Moore had a sexual encounter with her when she was 14 and he was 32.

Hannity's supporters then began tweeting in defense of the Fox News host, and some attached videos of themselves destroying their Keurig machines under the hashtag #BoycottKeurig. Innocent until proven guilty please! Back in August, the liberal site called upon companies to withdraw their advertisements after Hannity defended President Donald Trump for his response to the deadly, race-fueled rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Amplifying those messages along with Hannity were Russian-linked social media accounts. District of Columbia police say Rich died in a botched robbery near his home in Washington a year ago.

None of the five companies that pulled ads directly cited Hannity's coverage, but most of their statements were made in Twitter threads responding to complaints about the companies' relationship with the Fox host. The website's parent company is owned by Rupert Murdoch - the head of Fox News and it's subsidiaries.

Another day, another advertising mess at Fox News. Fox News swiftly ended its association with O'Reilly three weeks after the sexual harassment claims against him were revealed.
