Before Keurig, and other major companies commit consumer suicide over their decision to pull their advertising from Sean Hannity’s Fox News show, over his interview with Roy Moore, the GOP candidate for U.S. Senate in Alabama, who is being accused of sexual misconduct that allegedly took place between 36-40 years ago, only 4 weeks before the election, they may want to consider the facts that many media outlets have uncovered about Moore’s accusers. These advertisers might also want to explain to consumers why they never pulled ads on shows that interviewed Bill Clinton, who’s been accused of rape and sexual assault by multiple women. These businesses may also want to explain why they never pulled their advertising from TV shows that interviewed Hillary Clinton, who’s been accused by more than one victim of threatening the women who bravely came forward to expose her husband’s sexual misconduct.

Moore is being accused of having pursued inappropriate sexual relationships with younger women while he was a district attorney in Alabama during the 1970s.
Moore vehemently denies the allegations, saying that he believes the timing of the accusations are aimed at undermining his candidacy.
Moore, who spoke with Hannity about the scandal on his radio show Friday, did admit however that after his return from the military, ‘I dated a lot of young ladies.’
Some of the sponsors announced their decision not to run advertisements on Hannity’s show via Twitter after the Fox News host asked his audience to give Moore the benefit of the doubt, according to CNBC News.
