Hannity, Stop the Scalpings tweet list of Don Lemon’s advertisers

On Friday, Brian Maloney of Media Equalizer published a list of companies that advertise on Don Lemon’s CNN program.  Hannity helped spread the word by retweeting the account ‘Stop the Scalpings’ to his nearly 2.5 million followers.

Among the companies listed are:

  • Namely.com – maker of software for human resources professionals: 1-855-626-3591 @NamelyHR
  • Janssen Biotech Inc (a division of Johnson & Johnson): 1-800-526-7736
  • Astrazeneca – media relations: (302) 885-2766
  • Farmers Insurance: @WeAreFarmers / 1-888-668-4500
  • Sleep Number bed: 1-888-411-2188 / [email protected]
  • Choice Hotel @choicehotels / choicehotels.com :
    Customer relations: (800) 300-8800

There’s more, here, including Hulu, Zillow and Esurance (Allstate).

Response was pretty much what you’d expect:




One person suggested cable subscribers demand CNN be dropped from their lineup of programming:


Observing Lemon’s “long history of weirdness,” the site noted:

As conservative hosts continue to be held to a higher standard than others, it’s interesting to find out just how severe the imbalance really can be.

One major example is CNN’s Don Lemon. His on-air career history is filled with insensitive statements, bizarre gaffes and general weirdness. Where were the calls for his removal during these key moments?

That’s why the Media Equality Project and #StopTheScalpings have decided to highlight Lemon’s peculiar history and the resulting crickets heard from the same people calling for the heads of every conservative talker in the country.

We have also highlighted some of Lemon’s strangeness, fake news and bias here, here, here and here.

And of course, there’s Lemon’s now-infamous claim that a black hole may have swallowed Malaysian flight 370.

Lemon and his advertisers were also recently highlighted by the MRC, as we reported here.

It’s really no wonder CNN is now seen as the least-trusted name in cable news…
