Shakedown: Soros-Backed Group Now Trying to Take Down Hannity

After taking down Bill O’Reilly with a string a fraudulent lawsuits and attempting to force Rush Limbaugh’s advertisers to bail, Soros-backed leftist group Media Matters is at it again.

Now they’ve published a list of over 150 companies that advertise on Sean Hannity’s show and are encouraging leftist sympathizers to barrage them with threats of boycott unless they yank their ads.

One of those advertisers, Cars.com, has already relented.

Hannity is the last man standing in what was Fox News for 20 years.

But now he’s pushing back and calling the leftist spade a spade.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

A number of companies have pulled ads from Fox News host Sean Hannity’s show Hannity after he pledged to continue investigating circumstances surrounding the death of murdered DNC employee Seth Rich.

Companies including Cars.com, Peloton, and Leesa Sleep have all given in to pressure to cease advertising on the show over Hannity’s pursuit of now retracted claims made by Fox News that murdered DNC employee Seth Rich had contact with Wikileaks before his death.

On Tuesday evening, Hannity invited internet entrepreneur Kim Dotcom onto his show to discuss his claim that Seth Rich had provided Wikileaks with internal Democratic party emails.

However, after Rich’s family sent a letter to Fox demanding that Hannity not host KimDotcom, the appearance was cancelled, with Hannity saying he made the decision “out of respect for the family’s wishes.”

“I totally and completely understand how upset and how hard this is on this family, especially over the recent coverage of Seth’s death,” he said. “I’ve been communicating with them. I got a very heartfelt note. I also sent them a heartfelt note back.”

“However, out of respect for the family’s wishes, for now, I am not discussing this matter at this time,” Hannity continued, although he later contended that he had “retracted nothing” and would continue to “try to get to the truth.”

In a series of tweets on Wednesday, Hannity accused figures including George Soros, David Brock of Media Matters, and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton of “liberal fascism,” after his advertisers were reportedly “inundated with emails” from left-wing groups asking them to stop advertising on the show.
