I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of paying for propaganda. So, I’m starting a list of companies that sponsor distortion, lies and half-truths that are doing more harm to America than good. I really don’t care what political view the CEOs and executives of these companies have. I am generally conservative in my views, but today’s conservatism has moved so much to the right that I can’t identify with it anymore. I want truth in news, not hyperbole. I want valid research and reporting, not constant and continual unresolved controversy. I’m fed up with pundits and talk show hosts who pretend to read the minds of our leaders or who opine on motives of congress. I want a congress that actually attempts to do what’s good for America instead of what some company or lobbyist wants. As far as I can tell, President Obama is attempting to do what’s right and good for America, but the spin, lies and total ignorance propagated over cable and written news media is astounding and impeding or completely blocking good, valid initiatives. I’ve had it.
Therefore, I’m starting a list of sponsors that I am not going to pay or promote so they in turn can pay for propaganda. They need to pay attention to what and where they are putting their name.
Fox News Web Site Sponsors (starting at the top of the propagandist who gives a platform to Hannity, O’Rielly, Glen Beck, etal):
Nationwide Insurance, http://www.nationwide.com/
People Magazine (People.com), http://www.people.com/people/
SixFlags, http://www.sixflags.com/discoverykingdom/ (watch for annoying popups)
LaQuinta Inns & Suites, http://www.lq.com/
Maybe you can drop them a note at their web sites saying you’re boycotting them too. More later…
