Posted on 05/08/2012 10:18:24 AM PDT by tcrlaf
Catholic League president Bill Donohue declared an early victory in his campaign against the Daily Show for a joke about a "vagina manger," after Delta Airlines pulled its advertising from the program.
Donohue also pledged in a press release to continue his campaign. His next target: Kellogg's, whose executives can expect to receive photographs of the obscene stunt.
Delta spokeswoman Leslie Parker confirmed to BuzzFeed that the airline pulled its advertising last week. Parker said that "We are constantly evaluating our advertising strategy and at this time no longer advertise during The Daily Show," and denied that the decision had anything to do with "any opinions expressed" by the show.

And Delta doesn't DARE admit the boycott is what caused them to pull the ads. Can you just IMAGINE the left media sh**-storm that would ensue?
I don’t like this censorship crap on either side but I understand they do it to us all the time
Thank you Bill Donohue!
Well... I hope the Daily Show’s advertisers understand that many of us boycott without much fanfare. We cross you off the list and don’t go back.
Why not Vagina Koran? Or, Vagina Mohammad? Remember when the very mention of a person named Mohammad in a bear suit was stopped by Muslims?
Vagina manager? What’s that? I’ve been a vagina massager, but never a manager, them things is utterly unmanageable!
This is not censorship and neither was it censorship when MediaMatters convinced some not to advertise on Rush. IIRC, only governments can engage in censorship.
It’s business and the perception of the public.
Boycotts and embargos are private actions implicitly authorized, even encouraged by the 1st, 9th, 10th amendments.
Which religion is it that requires a personal pilgrimage to a shrine in some dusty middle-eastern city, and then kissing a stone inside a giant metal vagina?
Has that been a subject of mockery yet on the Daily Show?
good to see. keep it up.
whenever they cross the line, push on their advertisers
it’s one of the few ways to stop them... by draining their support
That's not a vagina.
It's a dilated sphincter, discharging its evil contents into the world.
A city council in California tried to extend the Media Matters “boycott” to prohibiting stations in the community from broadcasting such programming. Additionally, there were calls to the FCC to ban Rush so there were attempts in censorship in that case.
Government restriction of speech is censorship. And it was politically based, not because of the word “slut” being used.
You neglected to mention that city is segregated and any lowly kufir non-muslims who’d dare enter would be put to death.
Not "vagina manager" (that would be a pimp). Vagina manger. I think it's something that would give a vagina the mange, so probably Jon Stewart.
Yikes! I guess my mind refused to accept that reading.
It’s not a box an animal would eat from?
I suppose that is the makings of a vulgar joke.
