In response to our Stop Supporting The Oâ€™Reilly Harassment Machine campaign, UPS told us yesterday that it was investigating whether to continue supporting Oâ€™Reillyâ€™s show. â€œWe are sensitive to the type of television programming where our messages and presence are associated and continually review choices to affect future decisions,â€ spokeswoman Susan Rosenberg told us.
Today UPS announced it will stop advertising on Oâ€™Reillyâ€™s show. Here is the statement UPS emailed out just moments ago:
Thank you for sending an e-mail expressing concern about UPS advertising during the Bill Oâ€™Reilly show on FOX News. We do consider such comments as we review ad placement decisions which involve a variety of news, entertainment and sports programming. At this time, we have no plans to continue advertising during this show.
