Angie's List Sponsors Hate Radio Demagogue Mark Levin

My friend was driving me to the grocery store early this evening. The radio was on FM but we got stuck in a traffic jam so to hear if there was a cause for the jam, we switched to 640 am in Atlanta.

I 'd heard radio demagogue Mark Levin briefly a couple of times. I know an older lady (in NJ) who'd began listening to his garbage back in 2008 or so and has since become frightened beyond reason because of the poisonous propaganda Levin spews.

What my friend and I heard on Levin's 7/13/2012 program was beyond disgusting. Misinforming the undereducated with lies is Levin's M.O..

My friend and I were shocked to hear Angie's list is a sponsor of Levin.

Anyhow, I can't remember the last time I ever felt compelled to write a company about their commercials. BTW, I LIKE Angie's List and have been a contributing member for a few years. I recently wrote a 5* review of the wonderful animal clinic which has treated our pets for 5 years.

Anyhow, here is the letter I just emailed to Angie's list:

A friend and myself were stuck in traffic this evening about 7:00pm, a time when traffic jams in our Atlanta neighborhood are unusual. We switched car radio to AM station 640 to try to catch a traffic report.

'Mark Levin', a radio personality I know about but had heard on the radio only a couple of times, briefly, accused the President of the United States of being a liar and 'an agent of Marxism whose goal is to destroy America'. We were shocked by how many falsehoods or and ignorant statements Levin included in 15-20 minutes of his program.

However my friend and I were more shocked to discover Angie's List is a prominent sponsor of Mark Levin's hate radio program.

My friend is also an Angie's List member. Both of us are about 60 and are patriotic, middle class Americans.

Have Angie's list corporate officers ever listened to Mark Levin's radio program? Mark Levin's poisonous propaganda far exceeds controversial 'free speech' content.

It's hard to believe that a responsible American company would sponsor a hateful, possibly even dangerous demagogue like Levin.

I have used Angie's List as a resource to hire home service companies as well as professionals including doctors, dentists and veterinarians. I have enjoyed writing reviews in order to help fellow members.

However, if the management of Angie's List continue to support 'hate radio' with the money you collect from List members such as myself then I will have to discontinue my Angie's List membership in the future.

Sincerely,

Real Men Love Cats

Cool guys who loved domestic felines include Marlon Brando, Albert Einstein and more.

Marlon Brando and cat.

Yes, that’s right: A 20th century symbol of everything rebellious and macho, whose sex appeal wafted off the silver screen in movies including The Wild One, had a very big -- and very soft -- spot in his heart for cats, judging from all the photos of Brando with felines of various sizes.

Hot Coffee: Just When I Was Ready to Cancel HBO

ABC, MSNBC and other big profit making channels don't 'do' investigative journalism or air documentaries which might inform people and shake up people's assumptions.

Today I happened upon a great documentary on one of the HBO channels. Hot Coffee was eye-opening. The Supreme Court's decision by the Supreme Court on the Citizens United case may appear to be a nail in the coffin of Democracy. But there are heroes who are fighting corruption. We should all be grateful to Minnesota for having elected Senator Al Franken.

Watch Hot Coffee on On Demand or online. It is anything but boring. Author John Grisham, among others, appears in the documentary to comment on how corporations are state by state buying judges. It shows how our votes have consequences. And why we need to show up at the polls for issues such as 'Tort Reform'.

Excerpt:

Is Justice Being Served?

Seinfeld mocked it. Letterman ranked it in his top ten list. And more than fifteen years later, its infamy continues. Everyone knows the McDonald’s coffee case. It has been routinely cited as an example of how citizens have taken advantage of America’s legal system, but is that a fair rendition of the facts? Hot Coffee reveals what really happened to Stella Liebeck, the Albuquerque woman who spilled coffee on herself and sued McDonald’s, while exploring how and why the case garnered so much media attention, who funded the effort and to what end. After seeing this film, you will decide who really profited from spilling hot coffee.
