Office Depot and Office Max started advertising again on the Sean Hannity Show after Florida Family Association launched an email campaign in response to Media Matters’ claim that the company had recently stopped advertising.
Media Matters’ web site reported that "Office Depot/Office Max ceased advertising” on the Sean Hannity Show. Mediamatters.org reported as its source two Twitter posts. Jeffrey Levin @jilevin tweeted on December 12, 2017 "Dear @officedepot, Please don’t further enrich @seanhannity. Our children deserve better. Please stop advertising on his show." Office Depot replied with its tweet on December 13, 2017 which states “Thank you for reaching out & expressing your concern. We can confirm that we are not advertising on Hannity.” Both of these tweets are posted here at Twitter.com.
Florida Family Association sent an email to the CEO and Marketing Vice President of Office Depot on December 20, 2017 to ask if it was true that Media Matters had influenced Office Depot to stop advertising on the Sean Hannity Show. Office Depot did not respond to Florida Family Association’s inquiry. Office Depot responded to Media Matters’ communications but not Florida Family Association’s.
Florida Family Association sent out an email alert on January 8, 2018 titled “Media Matters reports that Office Depot and Office Max ‘ceased advertising’ on the Sean Hannity Show.” The alert encouraged people to send emails and make Facebook posts that urged Office Depot and Office Max to continue to advertise on the Sean Hannity Show. The emails and Facebook posts expressed disappointment that Office Depot and Office Max had surrendered to leftist propaganda regarding Sean Hannity.
Thousands of people sent emails and many posted Facebook messages to encourage Office Depot and Office Max to continue to advertise on Hannity.
Monitoring records prepared by Florida Family Association indicate that Office Depot and Office Max have advertised numerous times during the past two weeks. Mediamatters.org erroneously reports as of February 16, 2018 that Office Depot and Office Max have stopped advertising
Florida Family Association is defending Sean Hannity against the George Soros funded Media Matters’ attack on his advertisers. Florida Family Association stands with Sean Hannity because Sean stands for our values. Next to Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity is perhaps the strongest conservative voice in the media today. Sean is a true American patriot. Hannity has reported important news that no other cable news host has produced. He has relentlessly stood for traditional Judeo Christian values.
Florida Family Association will continue to monitor Mediamatters.org and challenge companies that it claims have stopped advertising on the Sean Hannity Show.
