Skip to comments.A List Of Companies Advertising In The New York Times
Posted on 06/30/2006 9:29:14 AM PDT by Sam Hill
As we noted a few months back, the New York Times is so proud of their ability to rise above such a parochial thing as patriotism that they have listed this as a great moment in their illustrious history:
This is certainly more true today than ever.
New York Times Timeline
The Times is widely denounced for an editorial praising an Austrian peace proposal that falls short of unconditional surrender. Adolph Ochs’s patriotism is questioned; The Herald begins a circulation drive with the slogan "Read an American Newspaper."
I've never been much for petitions or boycott campaigns. But it is long since time someone did something about the treasonous behavior of the New York Times.
To that end I propose that we should try to compile an exhaustive list companies who advertise in the New York Times.
Then, those who wish, will have a ready way to contact The NYT's sponsors.
A poster at Free Republic named Windchime began a list culled from the June 27, 2006 online edition of the New York Times:
It is a very good starting place.
If anyone comes across more, please post the name of the company and ideally an internet link for them, and I will update the list.
A "The Paper Of Treason" ping.
US Traitors Keller and Punch: "We are for terrorists, murder of Americans, and for reason against all Americans.
Without that, we are nothing."
The CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY (!)
reason -> treason
"The CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY (!)"
Isn't irony... ironic?
I would think at the very least they'd pull their ads.
Unless they are trying to recruit from the NYT's Al Qaeda subscribers.
(Which, come to think of it, might be their motivation after all.)
Smacks of the Valerie Pflame tradition at the CIA..... what better way to recruit more leftist wankers than to advertise in the bastion of liberal treason? The LAST place on earth outside of Al Qaeda that would be providing suitable recruits to the CIA is the NY Slimes. They'll just get more whiny useless liberal twits like this one (maybe that's exactly what certain people in the CIA want):
I think each Monday (over the weekend actually) I'll work on sending a few of this companies a little note. I don't have tons of spare time, but I do have enough to work on this project. Mondays will be my slam days! Hit them with faxes and emails and phone calls. Every Monday a different group. Nothing threatening, just clear.
I will no longer be using your services or purchasing your products until you withdraw you advertising from the NYT. The NYT has shown itself to place our country in jeopardy by disclosing high level national security information to terrorists and potential terrorists.
Anyone have thoughts on this or anything to add?
~~~Central Intelligence Agency
Actually, I think it's "Pinch," isn't it? "Punch" was his more moderate dad, I believe.
Excellent. Let the boycott go on. That's the least we can do for our men and women in uniform. I hope these companies start getting a flood of letters from current and potential customers about their enriching America's enemies.
Sounds good to me - I will be sending the same message.
Thanks for the list!
I'm boycotting all of them!
I'm giving up my car, my cell phone, my insurors, my bank accounts, my computer, my internet connection....
Why don't you use up to just one tenth of the brain God gave you? With multinationals, vertical integration and strategic partnerships between most players in all essential industries, it is literally impossible to boycott the NY Times's advertisers without living under a tree.
I was thinking I would voice my objection to the NYT, and ask where that particular company stands on the issue. I am not holding the commercial company responsible for the Slimes terrible position. However, I would like to see if any of these companies will reveal where they stand on the issue. I'll refrain from knowingly using their product or svc until I get a satisfactory response. If I get a snarky reply, then I may up my snarkmeter too. I"ll also remind those companies that I am thankful there are other choices for service/products and I'll my choices in the future will be influenced by this particular situation. I want to see where they stand on it. It should be interesting. Basically I will be saying the same thing.
What I was thinking was if we all hit the same group of companies on the same day, it might have more of an impact than hitting all of them with a smattering of outrage. Maybe we can focus energies on the same day to the same companies. I don't know. Boycotts don't usually work, but, well, we gotta do something!
I see you are a "git it done" kinda guy. A real ray of light in a dark room. Every avalanche starts with one snow flake.
