Air America Radio advertiser blacklist?

Media Matters for America - a George Soros-funded group that occasionally gets things very wrong and which has deleted several non-abusive, fact-filled comments I left there - has released a supposed [JPEG file] "blacklist" of advertisers who do not want their commercials played on Air America Radio. The main company that requested that is Hewlett Packard, and a list of a hundred others is provided below: Allstate, American Heart Association, GE, Frito-Lay, Office Depot, NYSE, Procter and Gamble, Pier 1 Imports, Red Lobster, the list goes on and on. The letter is dated October 25, 2006 and covers October 30 to December 24. And, it covers all affiliates, not just on AAR shows run on those affiliates.

Our liberal readers should note that this is just a business decision, perhaps relating to AAR's recent bankruptcy filing, and no doubt has nothing to do with politics.
