Advertisers distance themselves from Hannity after Moore coverage

Though the host earned some praise for asking Moore about the specific allegations, critics of the interview said the host went too easy on Moore, and over the weekend, liberal group Media Matters resumed its campaign to pressure advertisers to boycott Hannity's Fox News show.

The coffee maker was immediately ridiculed by Hannity's loyal fans, many hoping to reduce Christmas sales of the company and other ways to "hurt their wallet".

Moore is under fire for allegedly having a relationship with a 14-year-old girl when he was in his 30s. The #BoycottKeurig hasthtag is now trending on Twitter and you can find some fun videos of people destroying their coffee makers if you've got some time to kill today. 'We are not running TV advertising on Hannity.

In time for the Christmas shopping season the Keurig company made a decision to alienate millions of conservatives. "Please reconsider", Media Matters President Angelo Carusone tweeted the company.
