I cannot believe it. Carbonite is now advertising on the Daily Kos!

The following is my email to the Carbonite company. . .

"You're now advertising on the DailyKos web site when you have not removed your advertising from the Glenn Beck show yet> Have you lost your mind? You are advertising to a very INFORMED group. We KNOW the hatred and bigotry spilled by the lips of Glenn Beck and, I think I am safe in speaking for this group, we want none of it. Furthermore, NONE of us will be purchasing your product until you withdraw your advertising from the Glenn Beck hatred hour.

The first email I sent was kind in asking you to stop advertising there but now I must confess that I think your company is filled with a bunch of jackasses to continue to advertise on that show after you have been made aware of the insulting and extremely dangerous manner of Glenn Beck."

I hope each and every one of you will also send an email to the corporate big heads. I suggest you be kinder than my latest volley.

In a related story, I noticed that usually dick headed Jowe Scarborough, this morning, also denounced the dangerous content of Glenn Becks show, even extolling Republicans to denounce the hate speech. And, in agreement, Mika piped in that Glenn had told her to shut-up on several occasions and, as she put it, "is no gentleman".

Maybe the tide is turning. Don't let up!

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.
