How White folks fight back when one of Their own is verbally attacked. (3072 hits)

Dear Corporate Advertiser of Bill O'Reilly,

Wittingly or unwittingly, you are helping to fund and support Bill O'Reilly's unethical and harassing practice of "ambush journalism." Most recently, O'Reilly sent two men from his team to stalk a young woman while she was on vacation simply because she wrote a blog post criticizing O'Reilly's insensitivity toward rape victims. O'Reilly's operatives tailed the car of ThinkProgress.org's managing editor Amanda Terkel for two hours, and then accosted her in public with hostile questions, claiming she was causing "pain and suffering" for the families of rape victims.

If O'Reilly wanted statements from his opponents, there are alternative, more responsible ways of eliciting responses. Amanda was never asked to appear on The O'Reilly Factor, nor did the show ever reach out to ThinkProgress.org for comment prior to their decision to stalk her. Amanda is just the latest in a long line of O'Reilly's victims, many of whom have been accosted or confronted with hostile questions at or near their private residences.

Please use your influence as a corporate advertiser of The O'Reilly Factor to end this practice. I'm asking that you issue a clear statement in opposition to O'Reilly's brand of "ambush journalism." Thank you for your time.

Obviously the insult to First Lady Michelle Obama would never get to a stalking point due to her position but nevertheless, white folks mobilize intellectually. what do we do ?argue on a blog about ignoring the attacker. Wow.

Marta, when I saw this report and the interview with this female reporter, I thought of a great idea to pass on to those who advertise on The Factor. Ask them why is it that Fox-O'Reilly has it set up so that the viewers can turn the channel when their products are being shown but not while O'Reilly's is pushing his products? And, even more has the advertizers counted how many of the emails on The Factor is about his procucts and what he has to say as to the time given for them to pay (top $)for this to be shown to his viewers?

Or, in other words ask them why are they paying good money for Bill O'Reilly to sell his own products?Actually O'Reilly brags about getting his time free as he says he gives some of the money he earns from them paying for his chance to do this because he gives to charity!!! Something like this should WAKE the advertisers UP(smile)
