Advertisements

UPS has decided that they will no longer advertise on FNC, despite them being the far and away cable news ratings leader. They cite "political controversies" as the reason. Well, those of use who support FNC can show our support by contacting UPS and telling them that as long as they refuse to advertise on FNC, we will no longer use the services that UPS provides.

It's a win/win; the left can boycott companies that advertise on Beck and we can boycott the one company that has pulled out of FNC all together. Democracy at it's finest. Below is the contact info for UPS:

UPS: Contact UPS: United States

Well now that's your god given right, isn't it? Besides, it's not like there's not FedEx for all your delivery needs.

I tend to use Fedex for my business... but I may have to start using UPS a bit more.... unless you have a business that utilizes UPS and ships thousands of dollars each quarter (like mine does) they probably won't care if you boycott.

A large selection (33 total) of advertisers have pulled their advertising from Becks show over the past few weeks and I fully support this move.

Good for UPS. FNC is a joke anyways. However, you certainly have a right to your backwards opinion

If you boycott UPS, they can always seek gov't money to make up for the shortfall.
