The USAA financial services firm says it will reverse its decision to stop advertising on Sean Hannity’s Fox News Channel program. The change in heart came after receiving heavy criticism from many of the military members and veterans that it serves.
On Tuesday, the company also decided to begin advertising again on other programs where it had recently suspended its ads, such as “Hardball” and “The Rachel Maddow Show” on MSNBC, and Jake Tapper’s “The Lead” on CNN.
USAA was one of 10 companies that had pulled ads from “Hannity,” who had been attacked for reporting a story involving the death of Democratic National Committee staff member, Seth Rich. Hannity has ceased reporting on the story out of respect for Rich’s family.
USAA said it will review its overall advertising policy as they continue to advertise on the aforementioned shows.
