Hillary Clinton attack dog David Brock targeted Fox News host Sean Hannity last week – but an announcement Tuesday proves he missed his shot.
Hannity came out unscathed after the liberal group Media Matters, run by Brock, attempted to bully Hannity’s sponsors into dropping advertisements from his show.
While a small fraction of his advertisers gave into Brock’s political agenda, one group just revealed their regret in pulling out of Hannity’s advertisements and are begging to return.

The USAA financial services firm is reinstating its advertising on Sean Hannity’s Fox News Channel program after receiving heavy criticism for its initial decision from many of the military members and veterans that it serves.
At the time, the USAA said the company’s policy was to avoid politically opinionated shows.
But many of USAA’s customers reacted angrily, and it didn’t help when the company’s advertising on other opinion shows was pointed out.
USAA said it wasn’t trying to favor one set of political views over another.

“We heard concerns from many members who watch and listen to these programs,” USAA said in a statement on Tuesday. “Our goal in advertising has always been to reach members of the military community who would benefit from USAA’s well-known commitment to service. Today, the lines between news and editorial are increasingly blurred.”
The advertising is returning while the company reviews its policy about avoiding the opinion shows.
Brent Bozell, president of the conservative Media Research Center, said he wasn’t surprised by USAA’s decision, “given the avalanche” of protests. His group was behind mobilizing that backlash, and said its members generated more than 1,600 phone calls to USAA within 48 hours.

“They did the right think in going back on that show,” he said, “and so long as the other side isn’t participating in personal smears, they should participate on those shows, too.”
Clinton and her cronies are desperately trying to sabotage the entire conservative landscape in America – but the passion of veterans and military members has proven stronger than the Clinton cartel.
