"Olbermann reports the latest developments in our O’Reilly Harassment Machine campaign."
Last night on MSNBC’s Countdown, host Keith Olbermann discussed our Stop Supporting The O’Reilly Harassment Machine campaign. “Tonight begins the comeuppance,” Olbermann said in awarding Bill O’Reilly his “Worst Person in the World” honor:
ThinkProgress.org contacted the sponsors of O’Reilly’s TV program, asking — not if they support his right-wing stances, his hypocrisy, his racism, his misogyny, his fact-optional approach — but if they could stomach him time after time stalking people who had dared to criticize him in print or online. And tonight, UPS has said enough.
Today, we will expand the number of O’Reilly’s advertisers that we are contacting through our campaign. So even if you have already taken action, please consider doing so again. Thanks for all your support.
