Advertisers on the O'Reilly Factor, update 7/07
Reported by Chrish - July 23, 2007 -
We've received numerous requests for an updated list of companies advertising on FNC's the O'Reilly Factor. Here's what we came up with for the week ending 7/21/07:
First and foremost we ask that you prove O'Reilly wrong, that we are not hate-filled nor barbarians. A quick note observing that Bill O'Reilly fosters divisiveness and demonizes people with whom he disagrees ideologically, most recently equating millions of liberal DailyKOS readers to Nazis and KKK members, should do it. Thanks.
The most frequently seen advertiser was BMW (6 times) Frankly, they seem impossible to contact in any meaningful way, but if you have the time try http://www.bmw.com/ and let us know if you find someone.
Time Warner Cable and DirecTV both advertised 5 times. Since News Corp owns both FOX News Channel and DirecTV I think you'll agree it's pointless to contact them. Time Warner Cable, however, states on their website, under "Diversity":
"My goal for Time Warner Cable is to create a company that values true diversity, with an open environment that allows us to blend the experiences, cultures, influences, languages, and perspectives of our employees and our customers." Glenn Britt, President and CEO
Time Warner Cable is committed to diversity in our workforce, our suppliers and in our values of social responsibility. Embracing diversity just makes good business sense. By valuing the uniqueness of our employees, customers and partners, we are promoting a culture of excellence that fosters innovation, creativity and customer focus.
They might be dismayed to learn of the extreme vitriol and hatred shown by Bill O'Reilly for Democrats, liberals, progressives, and supporters of secular government. You can make them aware of his views at
Time Warner Cable Inc.
290 Harbor Dr.
Stamford, CT 06902-7441
Dell Computer and Lincoln-Mercury (a division of Ford) appeared 4 times. Chevrolet also appeared 4 times, twice for trucks, twice in conjunction with the On-Star program.
Dell is notoriously difficult to deal with; perhaps you've heard your own version of "Dell hell." Try writing to corporate headquarters,
Dell Computer Corp.
2300 Greenlawn Blvd
Round Rock, TX 78664
OnStar, on the other hand, appears very user friendly. They are a wholly-owned subsidiary of General Motors. Contact
Bill's Clothing is provided by John H. Daniel and Skip Gambert and Associates, 4 days a week (in summer, how nice for him.) Their professional reputations are above reproach and their products only the finest for Mr. Bill, so perhaps these gentlemen are unaware of O'Reilly's vicious behavior towards his fellow citizens while wearing their fine garments. Please accord them the mannerly treatment they are accustomed to (unless BillO is ripping their heads off over some minor mishap.)

UBS, Hefty Bags, CapitolOne, AT&T/Blackberry, One-A-Day Mens' Vitamins, Lending Tree, Mercedes Benz, Terminix, Nissan, American Movie Channel, and Michael Moore's "Sicko".
Contact Michael Moore and ask him what the hell he was thinking (but since his website currently sports a large "Take a Republican to see Sicko" banner, we can guess.)
AT&T was named one of the 2006 Top Companies for Minorities by The Diversity Network, as seen in Fortune Magazine, and claims on their website
"AT&T believes that diversity and inclusion make a better environment, both in the workplace and marketplace, benefiting the company's business and the communities it serves. As a global company touching diverse customers and markets, AT&T values individual perspectives and connects with customers through multicultural outreach."
Surely they'd be unhappy to learn that they are sponsoring an intolerant pundit who compares millions of liberals to Nazis and KKK members, based on the comments of a few. Contact
AT&T Corporate Citizenship
National Broadcast Media
I didn't see anything on the Terminix website that said they only service neo-cons and faux conservatives, so they might be interested to know they are sponsoring someone who is intolerant of people more liberal than he. Contact them at
The Terminix International Company L.P.

CapitolOne claims ""Do the right thing." That’s one of our guiding principles." but unless you want to do business with them they don't want to hear from you.

and let her know the O'Reilly Factor does not value honesty or integrity, misrepresenting and maligning millions of DailyKOS readers and contributors for the words of a few.
Lowe's, who previously pulled their advertising from the O'Reilly Factor for his egregious comments about kidnap victim Shawn Hornbeck, should be easy to convince to remove their sponsorship again. firstname.lastname@example.org.
