A List Of Companies Advertising In The New York Times
Sweetness & Light ^ | June 30, 2006 | N/A

Posted on 06/30/2006 9:29:14 AM PDT by Sam Hill

As we noted a few months back, the New York Times is so proud of their ability to rise above such a parochial thing as patriotism that they have listed this as a great moment in their illustrious history:

New York Times Timeline

1918
September

The Times is widely denounced for an editorial praising an Austrian peace proposal that falls short of unconditional surrender. Adolph Ochs’s patriotism is questioned; The Herald begins a circulation drive with the slogan "Read an American Newspaper."

This is certainly more true today than ever.

I've never been much for petitions or boycott campaigns. But it is long since time someone did something about the treasonous behavior of the New York Times.

To that end I propose that we should try to compile an exhaustive list companies who advertise in the New York Times.

Then, those who wish, will have a ready way to contact The NYT's sponsors.

A poster at Free Republic named Windchime began a list culled from the June 27, 2006 online edition of the New York Times: 

50 Pine Street

About

American Express

Bankrate.com

Benzel-Busch Motor Car Corp.-

Brown Harris Stevens

C/Net

Canon

Central Intelligence Agency

Chase

Citibank

Citi Habitats New York

Continental Airlines

Credit Protect X3

Crestor

Dell

E-Trade Financial

Eberhart Rentals

Edmunds.com

Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center

Fidelity

Halstead Property

Hewlett Packard

Houlihan Lawrence Real Estate Centers

K. Hovnanian's  Builders

Lenovo

Manhattan Mortgage

Mercedes Benz Tri-State Dealers

Miller Samuel Real Estate Appraisers & Consultants

NY City Department of Education

Pair Networks

Quebec

Related Rentals

Rockrose Development Corp.

Samsung

Scottrade

State Farm

T Mobile

It is a very good starting place.

If anyone comes across more, please post the name of the company and ideally an internet link for them, and I will update the list.

This episode may be more in line with other behaviors of the NY Times than people realize. IIRC, the "Austrian Peace Proposal" of 1918 was a sham obviously designed to bring a cease-fire that would allow the Central Powers to keep all of their territorial gains, at just the point when they were on the verge of losing the war. An "American" advocating on behalf of that proposal was about as sensible and patriotic as an "American" advocating in Feb. 1945 that the Allies sue for "peace" with the Axis and leave Hitler and Tojo in place with their remaining conquests.

"1918 September The Times is widely denounced for an editorial praising an Austrian peace proposal that falls short of unconditional surrender. Adolph Ochs’s patriotism is questioned; The Herald begins a circulation drive with the slogan "Read an American Newspaper."

"The CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY (!)"

Isn't irony... ironic?

I would think at the very least they'd pull their ads.

Unless they are trying to recruit from the NYT's Al Qaeda subscribers.

(Which, come to think of it, might be their motivation after all.)

re: CIA

Smacks of the Valerie Pflame tradition at the CIA..... what better way to recruit more leftist wankers than to advertise in the bastion of liberal treason? The LAST place on earth outside of Al Qaeda that would be providing suitable recruits to the CIA is the NY Slimes. They'll just get more whiny useless liberal twits like this one (maybe that's exactly what certain people in the CIA want):

I think each Monday (over the weekend actually) I'll work on sending a few of this companies a little note. I don't have tons of spare time, but I do have enough to work on this project. Mondays will be my slam days! Hit them with faxes and emails and phone calls. Every Monday a different group. Nothing threatening, just clear.

Yeah, but what do you plan to say? Good for you though, I am just confused on what the assertive statement is that should be reiterated by all who contact them. Here is my stab:

I will no longer be using your services or purchasing your products until you withdraw you advertising from the NYT. The NYT has shown itself to place our country in jeopardy by disclosing high level national security information to terrorists and potential terrorists.

Anyone have thoughts on this or anything to add?

Excellent. Let the boycott go on. That's the least we can do for our men and women in uniform. I hope these companies start getting a flood of letters from current and potential customers about their enriching America's enemies.

Thanks for the list!
I'm boycotting all of them!
I'm giving up my car, my cell phone, my insurors, my bank accounts, my computer, my internet connection....

Why don't you use up to just one tenth of the brain God gave you? With multinationals, vertical integration and strategic partnerships between most players in all essential industries, it is literally impossible to boycott the NY Times's advertisers without living under a tree.

You're wasting:
bandwidth,
brain power,
time.

I was thinking I would voice my objection to the NYT, and ask where that particular company stands on the issue. I am not holding the commercial company responsible for the Slimes terrible position. However, I would like to see if any of these companies will reveal where they stand on the issue. I'll refrain from knowingly using their product or svc until I get a satisfactory response. If I get a snarky reply, then I may up my snarkmeter too. I"ll also remind those companies that I am thankful there are other choices for service/products and I'll my choices in the future will be influenced by this particular situation. I want to see where they stand on it. It should be interesting. Basically I will be saying the same thing.

What I was thinking was if we all hit the same group of companies on the same day, it might have more of an impact than hitting all of them with a smattering of outrage. Maybe we can focus energies on the same day to the same companies. I don't know. Boycotts don't usually work, but, well, we gotta do something!

I sent several e-mails very similar to your suggested wording to four top corporate NY Times advertisers yesterday.I intend to follow up with others.To those who wish to do so, I would suggest using your own words (not form letters)If enough people do this,it might be enough of a bracer in corporate ad offices to have an impact.

With your sort of thinking we'd still be far off the shores of the Pacific coast in Columbus's ships. Or if you were black, you'd still be in the fields working for nothing.

One simple action can change a world my friend.

I give to you a small mustard seed of faith for something in your life that you believe to be completely impossible and I guarantee that if it is the will of God, it will materialize ten fold through one small action of yours--the first step being faith, the second step being the completion of one task in the direction of whatever this thing is for you. Bless you.

I am having a hard time finding contact info. for Google. Does anyone know where I can find this?

Also, what is most effective, calls, letters, emails? Does anyone know? I know with our Senators it was telephone calls (at least from what I remember. They have an immediate impact).

a little OT, but proof that all over the country, people are getting fed up with "agenda driven news":

Our local birdcage liner has lately been trying to make mountains out of various molehills. They decided to go after one of our Representatives. The Rep's dad owns a local business, for over 25 years. After the paper's attempted hatchet job on his son, the owner wrote a letter to the editor, telling him that his business would no longer advertise in the paper. He said they would honor their contract, but only to meet the letter of the law.

Today, I heard a radio commercial for this local business. The dad-owner finished the commercial by saying "And don't bother to look for our ads in the local paper, we'll spend our advertising dollars elsewhere". It was pretty cool!

CIA posts job advertisements, and they have some independent contracting authority, but I think they usually do that sort of thing through a company owned by one of their supplemental employee retirement investment funds.

Hey, take a look at the NYT Board of Directors

There's a world of info in their site at http://www.nytco.com/company-directors.html  These are the folks who facilitate Sulzburger's Treason:  They all have other business and professional relationships worth noting.

Brenda C. Barnes was elected to the Board of Directors of The New York Times Company in 1998.

This ol'gal has/had employment/board relationships with Sara Lee Corp, Kellogg Graduate School of Management and North Central College,  Staples, Inc,  Augustana College,  Center for Executive Women, Northwestern University, Pepsi-Cola, Wilson Sporting Goods, Frito-Lay, etc.

Raul E. Cesan was elected to the Board of Directors of The New York Times Company in 1999.

Bubba here  has/had employment/board relationships with  Commercial Worldwide LLC, and Schering-Plough.  No word on his affiliation with leftwing pressure groups or universities.  

Ms. Lynn Dolnick was elected to the Board of Directors of The New York Times Company in 2005.

Amazingly this woman spent 20 years or so hanging around the National Zoo in Washington DC..

Michael Golden was elected to the Board of Directors of The New York Times Company in 1997.

His employment/business and other relationships focus on  the International Herald Tribune,  The New York Times Company,  Tennis,  McCall's, and Child. He packed Family Circle in the list as well.  Before getting mixed up with the "newsies" at the NYT, he worked in a series of editorial and management posts at The Chattanooga (Tenn.) Times.  (Anyone know what it means when you "work in a series"?  Is that good or bad ~ hope it's not catching eh!

William E. Kennard was elected to the Board of Directors of The New York Times Company in 2001.

His employment/relationships history is more interesting than the others.  He was with The Carlyle Group, and Chairman of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission from November 1997 to January 2001 (which means he's a hardcore Clintonista Fur Shur)..  He also got mixed up with a law firm DBA  Verner, Liipfert, Bernhard, McPherson and Hand. (Guess he didn't get his name on the door.)  He also is on the board of directors of  Sprint Nextel Corporation.  My experience with Sprint is that it has the worst service and billing operation in the cellphone industry. 

James M. Kilts was elected to the Board of Directors of The New York Times Company in 2005.

His employment/relationships list includes  Proctor & Gamble, and Gillette.  He's on the board of  MetLife, Inc. and serves on the International Advisory Board of Citigroup; then we come to Nabisco Holdings; Worldwide Food;  Kraft USA, Oscar Mayer; and Philip Morris Companies.  (Looks like to be patriotic you gotta give up cheese and crackers, nasty sausages, smoking and shaving; but that's a sacrifice many of us need to make.)

David E. Liddle was elected to the Board of Directors of The New York Times Company in 2000.

This guy comes to us from suburban San Fran and Silicon Valley.  He worked with/for/on  U.S. Venture Partners, and Interval Research Corporation. He founded Metaphor Computer Systems and once worked for  Xerox Corporation and IBM.

Ellen R. Marram was elected to the Board of Directors of The New York Times Company in 1998.  She seems to be the only woman on the board who posts a picture showing her at near her current true age.

She was at North Castle Partners, LLC. Electronic Food & Drink Exchange,  Tropicana Beverage Group Nabisco Biscuit Company, Standard Brands Incorporated (owned primarily by Senator Lugar's mother once upon a time),  Johnson & Johnson and Lever Brothers. 

She's also on the board of Ford Motor Company and Eli Lilly and Company. Everybody recall how Ford's lawyers made settlements with SUV rollover victims that were sealed.  That way nobody at Firestone would get the quality control information that would have informed them that their tires had a problem.  Watch this woman close ~ all those folks at Ford giving direction to counsel for the company have blood on their hands as a consequence of that scandal.  Her Republican and Indiana connections suggest that someone's going to have to take Lugar into a small, dark room with a chair, some cuffs, and a well trained interrogator.  Some nasty stuff's gotta' be going on between him and the NYT with this gal on the scene.

 Thomas Middelhoff was elected to the Board of Directors of The New York Times Company in 2003.

Wonder if this guy is the middle man between the NYT and political interests in Deutschland.  Could be.  Take a look at his employment and interpersonal relationships.  He was at  KarstadtQuelle AG, Investcorp Ltd.,  Bertelsmann AG,  Thomas Cook AG (joint venture between KarstadtQuelle and Lufthansa).

Unaccountably he's wrapped up in  APCOA Parking AG.  Then there's Polestar Corporation,Fitch Ratings,  Fimalac, S.A., and popping up in the FORMER GERMAN DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC, he's on the board of  Bewerbungskomitee Leipzig 2012 which wants to host the 2012 Olympics.

Janet L. Robinson became president and chief executive officer of The New York Times Company on December 27, 2004.

Her experience before getting to work on the NYT proper was with Golf Digest and Tennis.  Anyone interested in a career in journalism might keep that in mind. 

Earlier she was a public school teacher in Newport, Rhode Island, and Somerset, Massachusetts.  I think we're getting somewhere in this if we want to know what some of the fundamental weaknesses are at the NYT.

Arthur Sulzberger, Jr. was named chairman of The New York Times Company on October 16, 1997. A

Before coming to The Times, Mr. Sulzberger was a reporter with The Raleigh (N.C.) Times from 1974 to 1976, and a London correspondent for The Associated Press from 1976 to 1978.  This may well explain why the NYT was one of the earliest newspapers to condemn the Duke Lacrosse Team.  He does not appear to have had any gainful employment at anywhere any honest person would care to work in his entire life.  It's good to be rich.

Cathy J. Sulzberger was elected to the Board of Directors of The New York Times Company in 2002.

Her career is so pitiful that I'm not going to bother noticing it.

 Doreen A. Toben was elected to the Board of Directors of The New York Times Company in April 2004.

This one is a Verizon person.  Before that she was an AT&T person.  She worked at Bell Atlantic, JP Morgan Chase, etc.  She has a truly unbelievable career progression, but here she is "directing" the NYT, enabling "Pinch" to do his thing and destroy America's defense systems.

Good stuff.

As you have probably gathered a lot of the people on the list are Sulzbergers or extended family.

Michael Golden, for instance, is a cousin. The paper is sort of overseen by the cousins.

Some say they installed Golden in there to look after Pinch, after the Jayson Blair/Raines calamities.

It was pretty obvious the relatives run the newspaper, but still, why do they keep "Pinch" on the job?

He would seem to be the least capable of the lot.

Presumably his "share" is a tad larger than the others eh!

But I suspect he might be on a tight leash. And that leash might be getting tighter.
