UPS Announces It Will Stop Advertising On Bill O’Reilly’s Show

In response to our Stop Supporting The O’Reilly Harassment Machine campaign, UPS told us yesterday that it was investigating whether to continue supporting O’Reilly’s show. “We are sensitive to the type of television programming where our messages and presence are associated and continually review choices to affect future decisions,” spokeswoman Susan Rosenberg told us.

Today UPS announced it will stop advertising on O’Reilly’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 O’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.

Think Progress
I love Ford’s reply.

  1. Michael Moore is the only that even comes close, but he’s not “batshit” crazy. Th neo-cons listed above are serious about what they say and how they say it. Olbermann is (mostly) serious, but he doesn’t claim to be a news investigator/reporter. He is and says he is a political pundit and the views expressed are his ‘opinion’. The difference is that those on the right are calling themselves news people, bringing you the facts, when in fact they’re also political pundits bringing you opinion disguised as (T)ruth.
