You may have heard by now that the Bill O'Reilly comedy hour has been getting hammered pretty hard lately for stalking and accosting a female blogger, Amanda Terkel, who dared to write a piece critical of BillO the Clown.

ThinkProgress, which employs Ms. Terkel, has been hosting a letter-writing campaign to O'Reilly's advertisers this week to highlight BillO's shameful tactics.  I joined in and just got this response from UPS:

Thank you for sending an e-mail expressing concern about UPS advertising during the Bill O'Reilly show on FOX News. We do consider such comments as we review ad placement decisions which involve a variety of news, entertainment and sports programming. At this time, we have no plans to continue advertising during this show.

After I got the email from UPS, I checked over at ThinkProgress.  They just confirmed that UPS is indeed pulling its advertising.

Update: Be sure to write to UPS to thank them for paying attention to our concerns.

Update 2: My first time on the rec list!  Thanks everyone!  Let's keep bringing the fight to O'Reilly.

Update 3: Some things to know about UPS:

-- Brown deeply rooted in going green: Some of the many ways UPS conserves

-- UPS Completes Deployment of 300 New "Green" Trucks

-- UPS "Global Volunteer Month Environmental Challenge" Awards $70,000 to Keep America Beautiful Affiliates

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.
