More on NBC - try a Google Search on "Boycott NBC"

If we could get all these groups together we might actually get somewhere with a boycott of NBC! The posts below aren't even the tip of the iceberg! One thing I found interesting is that a boycott was proposed a while back because of an incest joke about Michael Jackson... No comments from the peanut gallery please. Newt called for a boycott a while back also. I say quite a bit of discussion about it but obviously it didn't get too far. I guess too many love their television programs more than they love their principles.

Boycott NBC: Not by coincidence, the network bashing Christianity
By Michael Gaynor
NBC contemptuously and contemptibly chooses to bash Christianity and to ridicule Christian beliefs and values for profit and fun. It is a network that good people of all faiths should shun, unless and until it really repents what it has done and swears to refrain from doing it again. In "The Lord's Prayer," Jesus said, "Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil." Like some noxious NBC programming. NBC, the acronym for National Broadcasting Company, is determined to mock Christianity. So boycott NBC as long as it remains the Network Bashing Christianity!

Boycott NBC?
December 07, 2007 07:07 PM EST views: 199 There is no question that NBC is one of the most liberal broadcast networks around. Over on MSNBC, they have Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann. They have given, not sold but given, Al Gore more than 35 hours of time to peddle his global warming propaganda with no such allowance for the other side.

Boycott NBC and Its Affiliates!
I’m not quick to call for a boycott but this situation certainly calls for one.
NBC has decided to not air advertising this Christmas season because it is too controversial. The controversy - skimpy Victoria’s Secret ads? PETA animal rights ads? Anti-abortion ads? No. The controversy is thanking our American troops for protecting our security and freedoms.

Gillespie: ‘It Is Beyond Me’ Why Republicans Won’t Boycott NBC»
Yesterday, Bush counselor Ed Gillespie sent an angry letter to NBC president Steve Capus demanding that the network run a correction for what he called the network’s “selective editing” of an interview with President Bush. NBC pointed out that the full interview “has been available, unedited, in its entirety, for the past day, on our website.”
Gillespie — and the rest of the right wing — was not mollified. Appearing on Glenn Beck’s radio show today, Gillespie continued to attack NBC. When Beck asked why conservatives continue to appear on the network, Gillespie replied, “It is beyond me frankly”:

By now, we have all heard about the charges that were brought against Michael Jackson years ago, which were then dropped by the people who filed charges against him. NBC, however, felt the need to re-try Michael and find him guilty and depict him as a child molestor in November 10th's episode of Saturday Night Live. If you were unfortunate to see this episode, you were more than likely as disgusted and upset as the signers of this petition were. One can only think that NBC did this in an effort to hurt Michael's career.

Boycott NBC
The recent decision by NBC news to broadcast portions of the video provided them by Cho Seung-Hui, the mass murderer behind the killing of 32 innocent students and teachers at Virginia Tech University is deplorable. The airing of his self-promoting propaganda only serves to disrespect the victims, further victimizes their families and endangers the community at large.

Newt calls for NBC boycott, why bother?
December 7, 2007 · Print This Article
Today on FoxNews Newt Gingrich called for a boycott of NBC because of its refusal to allow a paid ad by Freedoms Watch that calls for supporting the troops. While I applaud the former speaker I have to ask, who watches NBC now?
I would stop watching NBC but I had already done so. I will admit I tuned in to NBC for Sunday Night Football the first week of the season but when they had Keith Olbermann on the halftime show I turned it off and haven’t watched since. Asking people to boycott watching NBC is like asking people to boycott jumping off cliffs. You can’t stop doing what you don’t do now.
