DU this poll: sponsor wants feedback on right wing hate-talk host

This link http://www.srvy.net/x/1.p?21204084252656790296 with the smiling wingnut:

brings you to a feedback survey by Lifelock, a company that likes to advertise on the most extreme right wing talk shows, and it asks for your opinions of the host Roger Hedgecock, who in the last few months has blamed the Newtown, CT shooting on "liberals" and "political correctness", said public schools are "anti-white" and "teach hatred of white people", and accused President Obama of being a traitor by "switching sides in the war on terror". (Oh, he also blamed shark attacks on liberals.) This is a great chance to tell an advertiser what's what--they are literally asking for it! Let's do this!

For more info on Hedgecock, see my DU Journal, this blog or this list of videos.

3. The CEO of Lifelock posted his SS number on an advertisement.

Needless to say it didn't take hackers more than five minutes to break into his account and steal $500, humiliating the company in the process.

4. I didn't even know Lifelock was still in business..

I didn't even know Lifelock was still in business. I thought they'd been exposed as frauds for charging money for doing nothing more than what you could easily do yourself for free: lock your credit report.

LifeLock CEOís Identity Stolen 13 Times

Apparently, when you publish your Social Security number prominently on your website and billboards, people take it as an invitation to steal your identity.

LifeLock CEO Todd Davis, whose number is displayed in the companyís ubiquitous advertisements, has by now learned that lesson. Heís been a victim of identity theft at least 13 times, according to the Phoenix New Times.

Thatís 12 more times than has previously been known.

In June 2007, Threat Level reported that Davis had been the victim of identity theft after someone used his identity to obtain a $500 loan from a check-cashing company. Davis discovered the crime only after the company called his wifeís cellphone to recover the unpaid debt.
