The company announced Saturday it had pulled advertising from "Hannity" after several Twitter users questioned the company's support for the host, citing Hannity's coverage of sexual misconduct allegations against Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore of Alabama.
Companies including the Keurig coffee machine makers and Volvo vehicle manufacturers have pulled their adverts from Hannity's show in the wake of his comments about Moore. "We accept the apology of the Keurig CEO, and look forward to enjoying a nice cup of apolitical Joe".
On Tuesday night, Hannity rowed back on that stance.
"You know I do not and will never rush to judgment, because we have seen the media and politicians get it wrong so many times", he said.
Hannity rushed to Roy Moore's defense last week, inviting him on his radio show barely 24 hours after the Washington Post's bombshell Thursday article detailing accusations by a woman who says she was just 14 when Moore sexually assaulted her. Hannity tried to give Moore the opportunity to flatly deny all he allegations against him, but Moore did the opposite. Three other women interviewed by The Post said Moore pursued them when they were between the ages of 16 and 18 and he was in his early 30s.
Roy Moore has griped that the media only wants to talk about the allegations that he dated teenagers.
Moore had denied knowing his fifth accuser, Brenda Young Nelson, however in a press conference Monday in New York, Nelson had held up her 1977 high school yearbook showing Moore's signature. "We will continue to place ads across a broad range of networks, including Fox News and its top shows".
"The American people deserve 100 percent truth and honesty", Hannity added. We needed to correct answers first time on issues of this serious.
Hannity's final word: "Judge Moore, you owe that to the people of Alabama, the Republican Party that you represent and to the country which is suffering under so many problems".
