Fox News said they were unaware that Michael Cohen was also Sean Hannity’s lawyer. But they said he still has their full support. Fox News codifies its false reporting with their support. That is why and this is how we must boycott Fox News.
Sean Hannity may believe that he has gotten away with the latest discovery that he is but a tool of the Donald Trump administration. But we won’t let him. Informed Comment’s Juan Cole wrote it best.
Fox Cable News is a project of far rightwing Australian-origin billionaire Rupert Murdoch to push television news in the United States in the direction of white nationalism, white grievance, romanticism about the business class, defense of neocolonialism, and punitive attitudes toward workers and the dissident middle class. It has a firm editorial line, which is set in explicit memos to on screen presenters. Its stars have been serial sex abusers like Roger Ailes and Bill O’Reilly. Hannity has emerged as the last Great White Hope among the bullies of cable news, and that he is corrupt and dishonest should come as no surprise.
What to do about all this? Most of the people reading this don’t watch Fox anyway (and by the way there are some excellent reporters employed by this corporation and the local stations are often quite good).
The only thing that has been shown to work is a consumer boycott of advertisers. That is what got rid of the odious O’Reilly.
Note that I am not calling for a boycott of Hannity advertisers because I dislike him personally or because I disagree with his politics.
He has revealed himself to be corrupt and dishonest with his viewers on a basic level that should be unacceptable even in a generally corrupt company like Fox Cable News.
So how do we boycott Fox News and Sean Hannity’s show? Here is the list. Voice your concern and urge them to pull their ads;
