Contact the advertisers on The O'Reilly Factor about his comments

Reported by Chrish - January 24, 2007 -

We've been contacted by readers asking how they could voice their outrage over Bill O'Reilly's scurrilous remarks about kidnap victim Shawn Hornbeck and his family. We compiled a list of advertisers on The Factor that night, January 15th, and with the help of a reader (CW) came up with a list of contacts for your use.

Note: Amended 4/25/07, to remove Sears from the list. I inadvertantly misidentified their spokesman Ty Pennington (and his red toolbox) when he was actually plugging for Bayer aspirin. It was purely a mistake, which I regret.

The offending comments, spoken to FOX co-worker Greta Van Susteren on 1/15/07, are reproduced here for your convenience:

"The situation that Hearst found herself in was exciting. She had a boring life, she was a child of privilege, all of a sudden she's in with a bunch of charismatic thugs, and she enjoyed it. The situation here, for this kid, looks to me to be a lot more fun than what he had under his 'old' parents. He didn't have to go to school, he could run around and do whatever he wanted, ... And I think, when it all comes down, what's gonna happen is, there was an element here that this kid liked about his circumstances".
