I responded to this here:
Basically, I read that UPS was boycotting Fox News (in total). It annoyed me and mentioned it on my Facebook page. One of my friends on Facebook then copied and pasted it and added on which in turn got added on and pretty soon all kinds of quotes were being attributed to me.
This is what I actually said: (from Facebook)
UPS has apparently pulled all their ads from Fox News. Will have to see if this is the case. I don't like to see companies trying to push their ideology on others.
And I told our guys to look at seeing if Fed Ex is cheaper (we rarely look at this sort of thing since it's all basically the same) and it turned out they were slightly cheaper so we use them for fulfilmment (for now anyway).
But since there was so little "story" to this, each retelling of it kept getting crazier and crazier until it turned into some thing about Glenn Beck (a show I don't watch).
For the record, I don't watch much TV which includes Fox News. I occasionally watch Special Report and Hardball (which is on MSNBC) and House and Simpsons and Family Guy. But beyond that, I just don't have much time for TV.
The issue has been debated endlessly already by people who take politics a lot more seriously than I do. My thing was simply that all things being equal, if I have two shippers to choose from I'll go with the one that doesn't use their ad dollars as a means to protest something. Just my personal opinion, others may disagree.
