I did it!!!! Singlehandedly...

AutoZone has pulled its ads! All because I emailed them....or at least it feels that way. This is empowering.

1. Awesome!

I'm hoping my letters of protest are having some effect too! Solidarity against the SOB's, woo hoo!

2. Good work!

and keep up the pressure, everyone! Businesses don't like to lose money, and the loss of their good name and the public goodwill that follows is positively nightmarish for any profit-making enterprise.

5. I do a lot of my own vehicle maintenance.




Now I will be more inclined to do business with AZ.




FWIW ... we should let these businesses know they have gained new happy customers for doing the right thing.

16. Why do all sponsors have the same response

When it comes to Limbaugh, they all seem to say their ads are run in "error." I recall other sponsors -- when called on the carpet -- responding the same way.

18. Not A Chance

 

Every compnay knows EXACTLY where their ads are running. They account for every penny and demand to see "traffic logs" to see when and where the ads are placed. I'm in the biz and these are ad agency buys, every second of air time is accounted for.
