Tell Advertisers: Boycott Sean Hannity

To be delivered to Sean Hannity's Advertisers

Petition Statement

Sean Hannity peddles disinformation and discredited conspiracies in order to undermine the rule of law and advance the Trump administration's interests. He is functioning as a state aligned propaganda operation. 21st Century Fox won't hold him accountable on their own, so we need to take action. Companies sponsoring Sean Hannity's show are essentially supporting a Trump propaganda operation. They need to stop.
There are currently 2,333 signatures. NEW goal - We need 3,000 signatures!

Petition Background

At this point, if a company is sponsoring Sean Hannity's show, they are essentially supporting a Trump propaganda operation. It needs to stop.

Sean Hannity has a long record of right-wing chicanery, lies, and vitriol. But his program has morphed into something more dangerous than just partisan hackery -- he’s been exposed as a full-blown propagandist who conspires with the Trump administration to spread fabricated stories, smear detractors, and undercut the rule of law.

21st Century Fox (Fox News' parent company) won't hold him accountable. So, there are two options: 1) Do nothing; or 2) Take action to hold Hannity accountable.

Spreading misinformation is Hannity's business model, and now he’s doing it on behalf of the Trump administration. His propagandizing has become so odious that he was condemned by some of his coworkers, who reportedly told The Daily Beast that the host was "'embarrassing' the network" and that "some people need to be fired.

It's past time for Hannity to go. If Fox won’t fire Hannity, then advertisers should run as fast as they can, or else they run the risk of being complicit in his deceit and recklessness. Advertisers will get burned if they continue to associate with Hannity -- plain and simple.

It's up to this grassroots movement -- individuals, organizations, and hundreds of independent organizers -- to keep up the pressure. Together, their efforts and your participation will have a tremendous impact.
