Volvo Just Pulled Its Ads From Hannity After Moore Coverage: Report
joining the weave of companies breaking ties with right-wing propagandist Sean Hannity, Volvo has pulled its advertisements from his show on Fox News after his coverage of sexual misconduct allegations made against Roy Moore, The Hill reports.
Volvo is the latest advertiser to pull its ads from “Hannity” in the wake of the prime-time host’s coverage of Moore, the Alabama Senate special election candidate accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women. Keurig and Realtor.com both said they were pulling their ads in recent days.
None of the advertisers said they were pulling their ads because of Hannity’s coverage of the allegations, including from a woman who says she was 14 at the time. However, the decisions come amid an online campaign targeting advertisers for Hannity’s show.
Since the news broke, Hannity interviewed Moore on his radio program since where he denied a report in The Washington Post that he had sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl in 1979, but admitted that he may have dated teenagers in his 30s.
Volvo’s decision comes the same day another woman came forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against Moore. Beverly Young Nelson alleged Monday that Moore had sexually assaulted her when she was 16.
