Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement in response to reports that advertisers on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show were caving to pressure from left wing political activists.
“The companies pulling ads from Sean Hannity’s show are trusting fake news over what actually took place. Instead of actually listening to what was a thorough, straightforward interview of a public figure in a highly charged atmosphere, these companies are acting simply on the word of political activists with an extreme agenda. Executives at these companies would never make a business or financial decision on rumor or innuendo, they’d rely on facts. They need to listen to the interview and then immediately resume their sponsorship of a show that has covered this story with honesty and balance.”
