#BoycottKeurig trending after company pulls ads from Sean Hannity Show

"We worked with our media partner and FOX news to stop our ad from airing during the Sean Hannity Show", Keurig responded.

Moore has denied the allegations from four women that he tried to have sexual or romantic relationships with them decades ago when he was in his 30s and they were merely teens.

Several companies made a decision to pull their ads from Fox News host Sean Hannity's show following pressure after his interview of Alabama GOP senate candidate Roy Moore on Friday. None of the companies directly blamed Hannity's coverage of Moore, but most made the announcements on Twitter in response to complaints about the show's stance on the allegations.

'My son was tortured', alleges accused juvenile's father; CBI denies
They also alleged a larger conspiracy behind the murder and said that they want the CBI to file a charge sheet soon. The suspect student was produced before the juvenile court on Wednesday which allowed the police to question him.

After his comments, Keurig pulled its ads from Fox. In covering the allegations, Hannity―along with one of his guests, attorney Mercedes Colwin―questioned the motives of Moore's accuser, speculating that she might have been lying and that she might be doing so for money. The #BoycottKeurig hasthtag is now trending on Twitter and you can find some fun videos of people destroying their coffee makers if you've got some time to kill today.

"Every single person in this country deserves the presumption of innocence", Hannity said.

Hannity said Moore should be given the benefit of the doubt.

Senate GOP Unveils Tax Bill With More Pain for Blue States
Some Republicans are predicting doom and gloom if they walk into an election year with nothing done. Where the Senate and House bills diverge on pass-through policy is how tax relief is determined.

In one instance, Angelo Carusone, Media Matters' president, tagged a sponsor of Hannity's show while claiming that Hannity defends "sexually preying on children". "We are not running TV advertising on Hannity".

In an interview on Fox News in September, former host Bill O'Reilly's lamented the advertising boycott that helped push him out following reports of repeated sexual harassment, and complimented Hannity's ability to ward off a similar boycott.

It's unclear whether the decision by several advertisers to pull their ads will result in any serious repercussions for the show.
