Hi everyone! Glad to see people here.Dec 11, 2016: Breitbart Google Ads
This takes less than 1 minute, but the consequences for Breitbart could be massive if enough people reach out to Google.
Here is the info if you want to participate.
Inspired by Kellogg's and other companies pulling their advertising from Breitbart, here's a fun action to take. From your laptop or phone, follow these directions and pass it along. Instructions below are for phones.
(1) Go to www.Breitbart.com
(2) Find a Google AdSense ad. It will have a teal triangle and an x in the upper right corner.
(3) Click on the triangle.
(4) Click "Why this Ad?"
(5) On the Google page that loads, Click "learn more" in the text toward the bottom.
(6) A page loads called About Google Ads.
Scroll down and click to "Leave feedback on the website you just saw."
(7) You are given a choice between "the website" and "the ads". Choose "the website".
(8) Check the box saying that the website (Breitbart) promotes racial intolerance. If you like, add a comment.
(9) Click submit!
If Google kicks Breitbart out of its ad network it will make a big difference to the company's bottom line. So tell Google to Dump Breitbart.http://www.breitbart.com/
Comments are required when you do this through a laptop. I put this:
Breitbart and its hateful views should not be supported by Google's ad network.
Someone on FB wrote this out:
I've come across many articles on this site that unduly focus on the race, religion, or national origin of persons accused of crimes, as if to suggest that people who are Black, Muslim, Mexican, etc. are disproportionately criminals. Typically these articles provide questionable statistics or at best no context for why a national "news" organization would engage in small-scale crime reporting alongside national political coverage. The site also traffics in articles with very misleading headlines that predispose the reader to respond with anger. It would be hard to call these headlines intolerant on their own, and many are primarily aimed at political leaders, but there's a pattern of them generating anger towards people of color and organizations like the NAACP that promote the advancement of historically marginalized people. Folks on my social media outlets are using articles from this site to promote white supremacy, and I'm fearful.
A group called Sleeping Giants has helped get Kellogg's and other companies to pull their ads from the site
