Links to Sinclair Advertisers

Remember in days past when puritanical mothers would band together and boycott companies who advertised on such sexually explicit shows as "Married With Children" or child brainwashing shows like "The Simpsons" or wrong-message-sending shows like "Murphy Brown"? Well, now it's our turn. Daily Kos, posted this list of Sinclair advertisers, and we've provided the links. We are asking our readers to contact these companies and object to the Sinclair Broadcasting Group's airing of "Stolen Honor," described by the Sinclair CEO as "an in-kind donation to George Bush." So make your voice heard already!

Halls Fruit Breezers, Sylvan Learning Centers, Kentucky Fried Chicken, ITT Technical Institute, Ford Motor Company, Yahoo DSL, Isuzu, Hardees, Taco Bell, Century 21, Prudential, Cnn.com, General Motors, Geico, Pepsi, Mountain Dew, Titan TV, Iams, Miller Lite, Ringling Brothers, Oak Express, ABC Solutions, Kentucky Lottery, Florida Lottery, NFL, Lincoln Mercury, H&R Block, Pontiac, Arby's
A couple of others:
ZigZagZone -- send e-mail to smitty@zigzagzone.com
Warner Bros -- send e-mail to faces@thewb.com (many Sinclair affiliates are WB stations).

You can also go to the "Boycott Sinclair" website for an even more comprehensive list of advertisers and e-mail addresses.

The Peach suggests that readers e-mail, phone, or write these companies and request that they withdraw their advertising or programming from SBG affiliates. Readers should also remind these sponsors that, in fact, SBG doesn't provide viewers with news, but instead acts as another arm of the pro-Bush, Republican propoganda machine. If they want to keep their business with Sinclair, then we don't want what they are selling. Amen!!

I'm delighted to discover that the only product in this list I come close to using is Yahoo DSL. (I use Yahoo's free e-mail, not their DSL services, actually, but I'm considering a change now anyway.) These folks are disgusting.
