  • Samantha Bee struggling to regain advertisers (13 sponsors dropped her)

    A new report shows Samantha Bee's late night show "Full Frontal" hasn't been able to regain its advertisers after the host attacked Ivanka Trump in May. The liberal comedian came under fire when she used an extreme vulgarity to slam Ivanka Trump in her monologue on May 30 over a photograph the first daughter shared on social media. "You know, Ivanka, that's a beautiful photo of you and your child...But let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dad's immigration practices, you feckless c---. He listens to you," Bee said. Bee apologized on a June 6...

    On Monday afternoon, America Live host Megyn Kelly spoke with Mark Stevens, the founder of the global marketing firm MSCO and an advertiser for Rush Limbaugh‘s radio program who says his company has been targeted by people who want to put him out of business for his connection to the outspoken conservative host. Earlier, Limbaugh had addressed the matter on his show, where he said that Stevens believes there is a coordinated attack on his business spearheaded by a group he wouldn’t name, but that Limbaugh was happy to — Media Matters.

    The corporate Goliath of the media world, Gannett Co., walks away tomorrow from nearly four decades of newspaper ownership in Hawaii after selling the spoils to the owner of its longtime rival Honolulu Star-Bulletin. According to industry analyst John Morton, "Gannett was essentially the winner in all this, but they elected to withdraw by selling." "At some point in a competitive situation, even when you have a company with very deep pockets, if they suspect that their opponent is going to stick in there even if it is losing money—it just might not be worth it for them to stay,"...
  • Letterman’s Sponsors Appear to Be Unperturbed (List of Advertisers)

    HOW much have opinions on Madison Avenue changed about “Late Show With David Letterman” since Mr. Letterman’s startling disclosures about his personal life? Well, one of the commercials that ran during the show on Tuesday night was from the Disney parks and resorts division of the Walt Disney Company. If so squeaky clean a marketer seemingly has no qualms about wishing upon a star like Mr. Letterman after last week’s events, it is unlikely other advertisers would — barring, agency executives and media experts say, any disturbing or scandalous additional disclosures. So long as viewers stick with Mr. Letterman, they...

    -snip- Embassy Suites, part of the Hilton Hotels Corp., pulled advertising on CBS' site because of complaints, company spokeswoman Kendra Walker told The company was not an advertiser on Letterman's show. "We received lots of e-mails from concerned guests and we assessed that the statement that he made was offensive enough to our guests and prospective guests that we elected to take the ads down," Walker said. She declined to release the cost of the ads. CBS declined to comment Tuesday. -snip

    ALBANY, N.Y. - Unwanted software slithered into Patti McMann's home computer over the Internet and unleashed an annoying barrage of pop-up ads that sometimes flashed on her screen faster than she could close them. Annoying, for sure. But the last straw came a year ago when the pop-ups began plugging such household names as J.C. Penney Co. and Capital One Financial Corp., companies McMann expected to know better. Didn't they realize that trying to reach people through spyware and its ad-delivering subset, called adware, would only alienate them? "It irritated the heck out of me," said McMann, a 45-year-old former...

    What large companies advertise in Newsweek? I think the most effective way to make our opinions of their slanted reporting widely known and to make the feel some pain for being so Anti-American would be to contact those advertisers that enable them by providing them with advertising revenue. A complaint campaign is in order, and those that don't drop their support need to feel the heat of a boycott. I firmly believe that voting with your wallet is one of the most effective ways of dealing with these people and companies.

    Zogby Now a PR Firm: Just yesterday I participated in the Nov. 10 Zogby On-line Poll (invitation only). Aside from being far more lengthy than usual, I was struck by the “advocacy” nature of the questions. Rather than being content to survey attitudes, it was very clear to me that Zogby was trying to influence and to change those attitudes, at least regarding what must be a new customer for them: The government of the Peoples Republic of Viet Nam. That was my conclusion, at least. Here are the questions regarding Viet Nam: you be the judge, but it looks...

    <p>The image was jolting: within the posting from the jihadi message was a photograph of a charred American corpse hanging upside down from a bridge over the Euphrates. But as disturbing as the image was, it was the sponsor of the page displaying the image that caused me the greatest concern. Right there on the screen beside the desecrated body of the American was an advertisement for the J.C. Penney Customer Appreciation Sale!</p>

    Coming up after these messages from our sponsors: more messages from our sponsors. Fearless Prediction: This fall one of the hapless makeover subjects in Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, the hit cable show on Bravo that also runs on NBC, will likely be deemed to have inadequately gleaming teeth. The solution? Crest Whitestrips. Procter & Gamble makes Crest, and it is now in talks with NBC to feature the strips in at least one episode of the new series as part of a broader ad deal. Brace yourself for more of the same: product pitches inside the shows themselves....
