Ann Coulter's latest bigoted and hateful diatribe has justifiably evoked rage and disgust throughout the progressive community, and every aspect of the subject has been diaried extensively in the last 48 hours.

One of the best ways to communicate one's distaste for Coulter's repeated incidents of hate speech is to respectfully but firmly let her advertisers know you are deeply troubled by their indirect support of bigotry through their advertising on Coulter's website.

A list of Coulter's advertisers with contact information is detailed below. Please note that web advertisers place ads in rotations, often only visible during specific time periods, and thus this list may not be complete. UPDATE: Go to www.anncoulter.com and hit your refresh button to view the various ads at the top. If you find new advertisers (or it appears those on the list below have pulled out), send me a screen capture of the page to the email addy in my profile and I will update the diary accordingly.

More on the flip.

UPDATE2: Please bear in mind this diary is not a call to boycott. Many of these companies and their management likely have no idea their ads are on Coulter's site. Such ads are placed by advertising agencies on hundreds of sites. The purpose here is to create awareness such that these companies will willingly withdraw the ads and their financial support.

Remember, if you plan to contact any of these companies, keep your communication succinct and respectful. Make sure your message has a professional tone. Ask them politely to consider withdrawal of advertising from AnnCoulter.com. If you are a customer or shareholder of any of these companies, be sure to state that fact, as it will carry more weight with your message.

Update 4: Several additional advertisers have appeared today on the Coulter site. Interestingly, there appear to have been no Toyota ads placed in rotation in the last 48 hours, so I am pulling them off the list. Companies which appear to have pulled their ads yet subsequently re-appear will be placed back on the list in future diaries.
Shown below is a list of new companies (contact info for these will be posted shortly):

Power Chord Academy, a band camp for kids
AT&T/Cingular
Wall Street Journal
AMD/Dreamworks
DogPile.com
ConsumerGain.com
InsightExpress.com
Greyhound Bus Lines, info provided by a diary reader but he/she was unable to get a screen capture. If others can verify Greyhound please note it in the comments and email me the screen capture.

Here's the primary list. If you personally have better contacts for key personnel in these firms please share them in the comments.

Verizon Communications

Kudos to Verizon. A Kossack reported recieving this message from Verizon today:

"Thank you for expressing your concern regarding Verizon advertising on the Ann Coulter Web site.

Verizon's traditoinal business purchases Internet advertising in many ways. One is via a network that places ads automatically in various spheres of influence.  Although our online agency has been instructed not to place ads on sites where extreme positions are expressed, this site was erroneously selected via that network.  Verizon Wireless has no ads on that site.

We have instructed that the ads be removed from the site in question and expect they will be removed expeditiously."

Thanks, Verizon! Another excellent example of great corporate responsiveness. I'm switching to them when my current cell contract expires.

You must add at least one tag to this diary before publishing it.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:
Are you sure you want to remove this diary from your hotlist?
Are you sure you want to remove your recommendation? You can only recommend a diary once, so you will not be able to re-recommend it afterwards.
Rescue this diary, and add a note:
Are you sure you want to remove this diary from Rescue?
Choose where to republish this diary. The diary will be added to the queue for that group. Publish it from the queue to make it appear.

You must be a member of a group to use this feature.
