When the issue came up of liberal groups calling up advertisers that sponsored conservative programs like Sean Hannity’s and getting to end their association with them; I really couldn’t believe it. The USAA one really hit me strange.
I mean, the majority of their clientele are veterans and their families, which would lead me to believe that someone slipped them an extra fifty in an envelope under the door in the middle of the night with the words “bitch about Sean Hannity” stuck to the outside of the envelope.
Liberals have a tactic of going after and shaming companies that advertise with Conservative media. They have gone after all of Sean Hannity’s advertisers and many of them dropped out. However, one Conservative activist group decided to get payback. They are now going after all of MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow’s advertisers.
Melanie Morgan of Media Equalizer wrote why they are doing this. “To counteract these fascistic tactics, #StoptheScalpings has decided to fight fire with fire. As long as Media Matters continues to attack conservatives, we will return them the same kindness,” wrote Morgan.
“#StopTheScalpings is part of the Media Equality Project, a new organization launched by Brian Maloney and Melanie Morgan, two longtime talk show hosts, political and media analysts.
The DNC, mainstream media, George Soros, and Media Matters for America, deemed Sean Hannity’s pursuit of the facts too close for comfort,” they wrote.
“In an effort to protect their ilk, and the secrets they keep, they have created a false narrative. They have defamed Hannity’s character, his work and political positions,” they wrote. The group posted the contact information of all of Rachel Maddow’s advertisers.
The founder of another group Media Research Campaign said the following. “Every network and cable news channel is today on notice that the MRC will be closely monitoring their leftist opinion programs and informing their advertisers and the American public when these programs and hosts go beyond political commentary and engage in smear, hate and political extremism,” said MRC founder Brent Bozell.
