And then I read that Kellogg's is pulling its ads from Breitbart News. Their reasoning turned my boycotting frown upside down:
"We regularly work with our media-buying partners to ensure our ads do not appear on sites that aren't aligned with our values as a company," Kellogg's said in a statement. "We recently reviewed the list of sites where our ads can be placed and decided to discontinue advertising on Breitbart.com. We are working to remove our ads from that site."CNN/Money goes on to describe Steve Bannon's hissy fit, which includes calling his views mainstream America and calling for a boycott of his own.
And so, denizens, here's something wonderful for you to do. Buy some Frosted Flakes or Rice Krispies or TBG's favorite, Special K. Indulge in a box of Pop Tarts. Can't eat that stuff? No problem. Personalize a box for someone who can
Surrounded by healthy eaters? How about some Pringles socks or a Corn Flakes cup?
Have I just solved half your gift giving problems by directing you to their website?
That was not my intent, but feel free to thank me.
What I wanted to do was give you a feel good moment, to counter a Breitbart-fueled revenge campaign. The other side makes most of the noise. It's up to us to talk back. So......
After you've shopped, or even if you don't, why not go to Kellogg's Contact Us page and thank them for standing up for real mainstream America, the America that is inclusive and respectful and kind.
I felt better afterwards.
