Advertisers ditch Carlson and Pirro’s Fox News shows

A number of advertisers are distancing themselves from the Fox News Channel shows featuring Tucker Carlson and Jeanine Pirro after the two high-profile hosts were accused of making bigoted statements.

Carlson is under fire for misogynistic, homophobic and racist comments unearthed from past radio appearances. Pirro came under scrutiny for comments she made about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), who is Muslim. Both have pushed back against the criticism, but multiple companies have reportedly pulled their support this week. Targeting advertisers with boycott campaigns is a frequent tactic of the networks’ critics.

SHEEX, a bedding company, has made the decision to cease advertising on his television program, ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight.’”

Pharmaceutical company Astra Zeneca tweeted Monday that it had ceased advertising on Carlson’s show and would not resume in the future.

Novo Nordisk, another pharmaceutical company, told The Post it was “reevaluating” its ads on Pirro’s show.

NerdWallet also told the Hollywood Reporter that “we’re no longer advertising on this show and don’t have plans to in the future.”

ThinkProgress reported that Botox manufacturer Allergan and GreatCall, a health technology company, would not advertise their products on her show going forward. GreatCall spokeswoman Elyse Dasko confirmed the decision to The Post.

Representatives for Letgo, Allergan, and NerdWallet did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment.

Was this some kind of revelation to advertisers? All of a sudden they discover Carlson is pond scum and Pirro is a bigoted shrew? Gimme a break. Can't wait for them to figure out that Pirro's ex-husband spent time in prison.

That seems to be a common thread with all these trumpers, bottom feeders and prison.

Sander's worked as carpenter(like Jesus) and freelance writer for over a decade.

I dislike Sander's politics , but I see no reason to post lying memes about him.

Don't give the leaving advertisers more credit than they deserve. As clearwaters said, they know what they are buying into, and leave only for appearances. More than a few will quietly return to advertising on the show(s) when the spotlight moves. It is nothing more than a shell game to most companies.

Nah, I think it's particularly relevant. From the Snopes article, how one conservative put it.


"According to liberals with IQs smaller than their sock size, conservative presidential candidates absolutely LOATHE women, hate them with a passion even.

Those mean, old, white guys — which is a hilarious stereotype given there’s latinos, blacks, and women in the top spots for the GOP — want nothing more than to destroy women’s health care by defunding the ghoulish Planned Parenthood, and encourage rape culture with their antiquated views on gender roles.

None of this is actually true, of course, but when have facts ever got in the way of the liberal agenda?

What should really make you scratch your head is how lefties will rake conservatives over the coals for the things mentioned above, yet say absolutely nothing about this atrocious Bernie Sanders quote:"


I can see that YOU might not think it's relevant.

The Causes of Breast Cancer and other Cancers?

Let's Ask Bernie!

He rambles a lot, but this pretty much sums it up if you want the condensed version.

http://time.com/4249034/bernie-sanders-alternative-medicine-cancer/

"From linking sexual abstinence to cancer to blaming disease on the “ails of society,” Sanders has sometimes professed opinions on health as alternative as his political ideas. He penned essays in his twenties arguing that sexual repression causes cancer in women, and suggested through his late forties that the disease has psychosomatic causes."

That's the short version.

There was nothing bad in the post. Here it is in the original. I don't delete, but I did in this case. It was too messy anyhow. In this case it's best. Nothing got lost. If it came back it'd just add to the confusion.

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Why, thank you, Ziemia.

From the article, Bernie Speak:

"How much guilt, nervousness have you imbued in your daughter with regard to sex? If she is 16, 3 years beyond puberty and the time which nature set forth for childbearing, and spent a night out with her boyfriend, what is your reaction? Do you take her to a psychiatrist because she is “maladjusted,” or a “prostitute,” or are you happy that she has found someone with whom she can share love? Are you concerned about HER happiness, or about your “reputation” in the community.

With regard to the schools that you send your children to, are you concerned that many of these institutions serve no other function than to squash the life, joy and curiosity out of kids. When a doctor writes that the cancer personality “represses hate, anger, dissatisfaction and grudges, or on the other hand, is a ‘good’ person, who is consumed with self pity, suffers in stoic silence”, do you know what he is talking about, and what this has to do with children, parents, and schools."
