Skip to comments.** CBS 60 Minutes Advertiser Contact info **

The most important thing you can do is to contact CBS and voice your disgust about Dan Rather. Second, about CBS's anti-Bush taint, and third, send media links to the controversy to the advertisers and lodge a complaint with the advertisers that they must repudiate the 60 Minutes hit piece. Do they want their products associated with a politically motivated hatchet job which turns out to be a fraud?
CBS 60 Minutes Hit Piece on Bush
This should be enough to put a LOT of heat on CBS if you're willing to do the work. Complain to CBS advertisers. Most of these are advertisers that were involved with the 60 Minutes slam on Bush, but hey, complain to them and ask for them to pull their advertising from the Bush Hating CBS...

I went here and posted a meanie comment to all their news shows....It probably wont get read, but it made me feel better
Thank you for putting this information together.
Voice mail numbers are already full!
CBS is owned by Viacom, Chairman Sumner Redstone, who appears to have extensive democrat party affiliations, according to his biography on Viacom website.
Thanks for the sources...I also put in my letter to CBS about Dan groveling at the feet of Saddam Hussein....
I'm sending the following email:
>How could you possibly continue to support CBS's 60 minutes? The show has no objectivity, and your advertising dollars might as well be donations to the Democratic Party. I hope all conservatives and supporters of the President of the country during a time of war will remember that your product helps support attacks on the President masquerading as news stories.
Thanks for nothing.<

E-Mail to Home Depot:
Subject: Due to Your Support of 60 Minutes Lies I Quit as a Customer
CC: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org
I purchase around $1,000 to $2,000 a year from Home Depot
for home and for my business.
Due to your advertising support for 60 Minutes continued
panning of our President, and most particularly due to the
recent episode using visibly forged documents to criticize
George Bush's National Guard service, Sears and Lowe's will
now get all of my business instead.
You chose Rather and 60 Minutes; I choose to no longer purchase
from your corporation as a result.
BTW, this is part of a national boycott now being organized
on the internet. I am not the first of your customers to walk
and I will clearly not be the last.
I suggest that you take this issue up with Rather and 60 minutes;
Note: Jerry Shields is Senior Public Relations Manager
Diane Dayhoff is Vice President, Investor Relations, +1-770-384-2666
Home Depot sent this in response to my email....
Thank you for contacting homedepot.com!
We sincerely appreciate hearing from all of our customers and we thank you for your feedback and concerns.
As far as our advertising policy is concerned, for competitive business reasons The Home Depot advertises on programs that are most popular with the viewing public. We work hard to avoid programs that are inconsistent with our values, but as you probably know, it is impossible to preview content of any program prior to its broadcast.
The Home Depot is committed to building stronger communities. We are proud of our long tradition of supporting organizations working in the areas of affordable housing, disaster preparedness, at-risk youth and the environment. Over the last 12 years, The Home Depot has contributed nearly $200 million and tens of millions of volunteer hours to worthwhile causes.
We hope this answers your concerns. Thank you, again, for sharing your comments. We appreciate hearing from all of our customers.
I just switched to a new cell phone service and need to cancel my old one - Cingular. Perfect timing. I will tell them they lost my business due to their sponsorship of 60 Minutes. hehehehe
Ouch, this hurts.
