Sean Hannity Revels In Viewer Boycott Of Advertiser Who Pulled Out Of His Show

Carlos Garcia, TheBlaze

Fox News host Sean Hannity thanked his supporters on social media for beginning a boycott of Keurig products and posting videos of themselves destroying their products after the company pulled its ads from his show.

Why did Keurig pull their ads from Hannity’s show?

Left-wing activist organization Media Matters pressured Hannity’s advertisers to abandon his show after he allowed Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore to defend himself from allegations that he had inappropriate sexual behavior with a 14-year-old in 1979.

Media Matters tried unsuccessfully before to get Hannity tossed off the air over his coverage of the conspiracy theory surrounding the murder of a DNC employee.

After being pressured on social media, Keurig indicated Saturday that it would remove its ads from Hannity’s show.

“Angelo, thank you for your concern and for bringing this to our attention,” Keurig  tweeted to Angelo Carusone, Media Matters’ president. “We worked with our media partner and FOX news to stop our ad from airing during the Sean Hannity Show.”

4,000 Years Of Price Control

Tablets, said to be 200 years older than the Babylonian Code of Hammurabi ... show that the ancient kingdom of Eshnunna had wage control and price control. The news ought not to have come as a surprise. For the code of Hammurabi itself (unearthed in 1902), which was promulgated earlier than 2000 B.C., fixed prices, wages, interest rates, and fees. This makes price control at least about 4,000 years old. ...

 

Ironically, it is those who now wish to return to this ancient totalitarian device who are fondest of calling themselves “progressives.” They are also fond of saying that those who believe in economic liberty “are living in the nineteenth century.” These controlists have yet to learn that they themselves are still living, as the discoveries in Babylonia attest, in the nineteenth century—B.C.!
