Boycotts Against Conservative Hosts Could Hurt Liberal Hosts in the Long Run 5/30/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

The following is a rush transcript and may contain errors:

At the time of this recording Sean Hannity is still employed by Fox and I’m hoping he will be for a very long time. Hannity is a good guy, never met him, but he’s a good guy. I wanna discuss all of this boycott business that the left is engaging in about conservative TV and radio hosts. It’s not new, they’ve been doing this for years, from starting boycotts against Rush Limbaugh to the latest with Sean Hannity. In the long run, I believe all of the boycotting is gonna start hurting liberal TV and radio shows because we are getting in such an intense political climate with each side going after the other side and boycotting and harassing companies because they advertise on a show they don’t like politically, that what’s gonna happen is that a lot of these blue chip, big name advertisers are gonna stop advertising on anything political all together, and that’s not gonna help anyone. USAA has already cancelled advertisements on Hannity and then they announced they wouldn’t advertise on Rachel Maddow because they’re afraid cable news, right or left, is becoming too toxic to advertise on. The left should be careful what they wish for. They may get Hannity fired today, and then tomorrow it may be their show hosts that are losing advertisers. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.
