In terms of the bottom line, CBS MoneyWatch wrote Monday that the global company shouldn't get too jittery about the protest, noting that the brand's devotees dwarf "Hannity"'s nightly audience of 3.2 million: "Even if all of those "Hannity" viewers owned a Keurig machine, it would still represent a fraction of Keurig's consumer base", said CBS.

"Thank you for your concern and for bringing this to our attention", Keurig responded to one user. "We are not running TV advertising on Hannity".

"I don't want people losing their jobs because sales dropped so dramatically because conservatives don't want to buy their machines", Hannity said, adding that he is going to give away "500 coffee machines" to his supporters.

In most situations such as this one, we would "pause" our advertising on that particular program and reevaluate our go-forward strategy at a later date. Moore also threatened to sue The Post.

After Hannity expressed his hope that Moore and others accused of assault were given the benefit of the doubt, Twitter user Angelo Carusone reached out to Keurig, saying, "you are now sponsoring Sean Hannity's show".

Players qualify for the final event of the year by accumulating enough points throughout the year to finish inside the top eight. The 36-year-old Federer broke the American in the first game and went on to take the first set 6-4 in just 36 minutes.

"And consensual, that's true", said Hannity.

People uploaded videos of themselves creatively destroying their Keurig coffee makers with the hashtag #BoycottKeurig. Three women interviewed by the Post said they were between 16 and 18 when Moore pursued them; A fourth, Leigh Corfman, says Moore initiated sexual contact with her when she was 14 and he was a 32-year-old assistant district attorney in Alabama.

"Yes of course. Frankly accusations from 40 yrs ago". All the Clinton's crap & this is justice? No!

The boycott echoes other recent backlashes over advertisers' decisions to pull ads due to political content, an issue that appears to be on the rise in the year since President Donald Trump won the 2016 election.

Just in time for Christmas!

Alabama battles back to beat Mississippi State
Although MSU did not walk away with the win, the game and the atmosphere will be remembered for a long time by fans on both sides. That was more than enough time for the Tide, who drove six plays and 68 yards in 44 seconds for the game-winning score.

Another sponsor targeted by Media Matters, Realtor.com, announced that it would not be running ads on Hannity in the future.

Amplifying those messages along with Hannity were Russian-linked social media accounts.

Hannity had propagated a widely discredited theory that Rich was shot and killed because he had supplied DNC emails to WikiLeaks. Right now we are #BoycottKeurig Send emails, call and/or post on their Twitter TL.

The ads were rescheduled to other Fox broadcasts. Gamgort reminded staffers that the company advertises on all the major cable channels, rather than just Fox News.

Another day, another advertising mess at Fox News.

Similarly, back in April, BMW, Mitsubishi, Hyundai and Lexus were some of the brands that pulled their ads from Bill O'Reilly's show The O'Reilly Factor, following a wave of sexual harassment allegations were made against him.
