Bozell: 'Terrible Liars' at USAA Claim ‘Hannity’ Ad Pulled Because They Don't Advertise on ‘Opinion Shows’

Media Research Center President Brent Bozell exposed USAA’s spokesmen as “terrible liars” for claiming they pulled their advertisements on “Hannity” because USAA doesn’t advertise on opinion shows – when, in fact, they advertise on far-left media.

In a statement released Thursday, Bozell condemned USAA’s “obnoxious and shameful” hypocrisy, especially given that Sean Hannity, like USAA, serves and supports the U.S. military:

“USAA is dishonest and their spokesmen are terrible liars. First they pander to the far-left by announcing they were pulling advertising from Sean Hannity's TV show, and when there is an uproar against them, they state on Twitter that they don't advertise on 'opinion shows.'

That is dishonest. They advertised on MSNBC Hardball just last night. We have several other examples of USAA advertising on left-wing shows that would clearly violate their stated 'policy.'

“USAA's customers -- so many of them veterans who have no greater champion than Sean Hannity -- have every right to be outraged. USAA owes them specifically, and the public at large an explanation. This duplicity is obnoxious and shameful.”

In a statement issued earlier in the day, Bozell said that the unwarranted boycott is part of liberals’ efforts to silence conservative views and re-establish a monopoly of the information the American public can access.
