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.
I love Ford’s reply.

Now this is progress.
There are no words for how much I despise O’Reilly, Beck and Hannity.
@nyokki: Don’t forget Ann Coulter. She tags the same line of lies/bullshit/bile/manipulation.
@Puulaahi: Yes, though I was strictly speaking of those w/ television shows. Otherwise I’d have to add in Limbaugh and countless others.
Ann Coulter’s an official talking head for Fox. So’s michelle malkin. Both of those gals are batshit crazy.
@tiki god: lol I forgot about them. There’s a lot of them isn’t there? Who do we have on the left that is that batshit crazy?
@nyokki: Michael Moore. Brian Williams? Al Roker? Keith Olbermann? Stephen Colbert? John Stewart? LOL I dunno. Someone has to fight the Faux News BS.
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.
First we’ll shut down O’Reilly, then we’ll take on Limbaugh. Little fish first, then the big, fat, bloated assholes. This is a great start!
