"I believe no responsible company should advertise on Fox News due to its recent and on-going deplorable conduct."

Dear Fox Advertiser,

I agree with Tides Foundation CEO Drummond Pike:

"Businesses that pay to broadcast commercials on Fox News are subsidizing Glenn Beck's television show by continuing to pump money into the network. It has become clear that the only way to stop supporting Beck is to stop supporting Fox News.

"I respectfully request that you bring this matter of your company's sponsorship of hate speech leading to violence to the attention of your fellow directors as soon as possible. I believe no responsible company should advertise on Fox News due to its recent and on-going deplorable conduct."

Selected Fox News Advertisers:

* JP Morgan Chase & Co
* GEICO (Berkshire Hathaway)
* Zurich Financial
* Chrysler
* Direct Holdings Americas, Inc (Time-Life)
* GlaxoSmithKline
* AstraZeneca
* Lilly Corporate Center
* BP
* The Hartford Financial Services Group, Inc.


Steve...you're a moron. :):D I'm sure FOX is trembling at this one!!!!

Of course OS doesn't bother wondering why the Tides foundation feels a need to attack Glenn Beck. He doesn't bother to check out any of Beck's assertions regarding Tides. He only cares that his masters are being attacked/ investigated by somebody he has been told to hate.

Actually I'd drop him with some high velocity lead poisoning to his head.

Ol' Steve isn't upset about what he sees on FNC.

No, he's afraid that other people watch FNC.

And George Soros and his merry minions just can't have people forming their own thoughts by hearing both sides. Mao, Uncle Joe and Fidel didn't let people be heard, and look how well that turned out.

Let's join this weeks meeting at Geico:

CEO: OK people. What we have here is a proposal to pull our advertising from the cable news station who is beating all of the other cable news stations hand over fist combined. So, how does the board feel about pulling our advertising from Fox News?

Board: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHA!


CEO: Good. Then it's unanimous then.
