I'm going to write a letter tomorrow and send it to as many of these as I can find an address for.

Screw Disney and ABC. Lies and propoganda.

I feel that if I boycotted any company that made any sort of positive remark toward anti-gun stuff, or ever had anything to do with it... I'd be stuck manufacturing my own everything.

King of the Hill-Episode Hillennium: CHAPPY: I'm not panicking. You wanna know why? Because Chappy takes care of Chappy. Want a piece of corn bread? Make it myself with no electric tools.
HANK: Must be the elbow grease that makes it taste so good, huh?
CHAPPY: That or the lard. Render it myself.
HANK: You're like a pioneer, Chappy.
CHAPPY: I live in a shack, I poop in an outhouse, I eat what I kill. Let the grid go down, Lord, I don't need it.
HANK: Uh... there isn't a Mrs. Chappy, is there, Chappy?

yep

Life on Mars just had it's series finale. Eli Stone's toast except for the last 4 episodes to burn off.

I don't count "ABC Show X" as sponsors. That's like calling your employed wife your sponsor. You are one legally bound unit.

I already avoid Disney movies like the plague, I don't deal with their sponsors except maybe Universal Studios movies, and I'm not a Nielsen respondent.

I'll keep watching Better off Ted, Castle, Greek (ABC Family), Grey's Antatomy, and Private Practice though.

The only network I have sworn off is CBS, for canceling entertaining shows.

That was a retarded episode.... Lets put a guy in a small room and have a gun man bust into the little room and start shooting at people. This must be solid proof that guns are ineffective self defense tools since the person getting ambushed couldn't draw and shoot the already shooting attacker in time. :rolleyes:

Remember the connection between the Moonies and Proctor and Gamble (http://www.straightdope.com/columns/read/520/is-procter-gamble-run-by-satanists)?

Companies are very sensitive to bad PR. Convincing them that sponsoring such dreck is 'bad' will be the trick, since pretty much all TV is dreck.

At least try. If it doesn't make a difference after you've tried you'll be satisfied knowing you did what you could. A defeatist attitude isn't going to do any good.

Yes, I realy, realy, . . . .really do.

Has tact always been your strong suit, or is this a new development for you?

Corporations that advertise on major networks are responsible to their shareholders to show a profit, etc. They spend hundreds of thousands, to millions of dollars for 15, and 30 second spots, and they usually have some choices in what sort of programming they are sponsoring.

If the corporate sponsors have been deluged with calls and emails from irate former consumers, swearing never to buy their product or service again, the companies will become very reluctant to sponsor certain anti-constitutional programming again.

The networks then have a strong disincentive to create such programming in the future, for the simple reason that it is not profitable, because they, too, are responsible to their shareholders to show a profit.

Simple economics.

There, I tried not to waste too much more space posting that explanation.
