Advertisers Leave Hannity for His Use of Fake News

CBS News reported this evening,

The Chicago-based Cars.com said it had been watching Hannity’s show closely and decided to suspend its backing.

Peloton, an at-home cycling company, announced plans on Twitter to stop advertising on Hannity’s show.

CBS News reached out to Peloton for comment but has yet to receive a response.

Hannity has recently come under fire for giving coverage to conspiracy theories about the unsolved Washington, D.C. murder of a young DNC staffer, which Fox News later retracted.
