Major Advertisers Fleeing Breitbart In Droves

Major Advertisers Fleeing Breitbart In Droves


MAJOR ADVERTISERS ARE
PULLING OUT OF PLACING ADS ON BREITBART, A RIGHT-WING
PUBLICATION THAT DOES RAISE A FEW EYEBROWS, INCLUDING THOSE
AMONG BIG CORPORATIONS THAT DON’T WANT TO PLACE THEIR ADS ON
CONTROVERSIAL WEBSITES. THAT INTERNAL EMAIL WAS PROVIDED TO BUZZFEED AND I THINK IT IS
SUPER INTERESTING. THERE IS A MOVEMENT ON TWITTER WHERE IF
THERE IS A MAJOR ADVERTISER FEATURED ON BREITBART’S WEBSITE
PEOPLE ON TWITTER THAT ARE PART OF THIS ORGANIZATION WILL START
SHAMING THE COMPANY BEHIND THE ADS. A LOT OF TIMES WHAT HAPPENS
IS COMPANIES WILL HIRE A THIRD PARTY WHO HAS A LOT OF DIFFERENT
CLIENTS, AND THAT COMPANY, IN THIS CASE OMD, WILL GO AHEAD AND PLACE ADS ON VARIOUS WEBSITES. SO SOMETIMES THE COMPANIES DON’T
EVEN KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON.>>MOST OFTEN COMPANIES DON’T
KNOW. THEY JUST GO TO HEAVILY TRAFFICKED SITES.>>EXACTLY. IN THIS CASE THEY
ARE THINKING MAYBE WE DON’T WANT TO HAVE HER ADS ON BREITBART. JUST TO GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT THIS CAMPAIGN ON TWITTER LOOKS LIKE. I LIKE THE FACT THAT
THEY WANT TO BE POLITE AND NOT OFFENSIVE. I LIKE THIS CAMPAIGN
AND I LIKE THAT IT IS EFFECTIVE.>>IT IS A SUPER CONSTRUCTIVE
WAY TO USE THE POWER OF SOCIAL MEDIA TO EFFECT SOME CHANGE. IF ENOUGH COMPANIES BLOCK
BREITBART THEN THEY COULD FEEL THAT, AND THAT IS GOOD.>>BUT WE ARE TYPICAL LIBERALS
WHO JUST WANT TO CENSOR PEOPLE AND DO AWAY WITH THEIR FREE SPEECH. SCREW THE FREE MARKET AND ALLOW
COMPANIES TO ADVERTISE WHERE THEY SEE FIT. I LOVE THAT AND I LOVE IT THERE
IS A LITTLE BIT OF POSITIVE NEWS OUT THERE TODAY.>>AND IT IS A REALLY EFFECTIVE
WAY TO DO IT. IT IS NOT REALLY SHAMING, IT BRINGS ñ THE SHAME
IS INTERNAL. WE ARE NOT SAYING SHAME ON YOU.>>THAT IS EXACTLY HOW TO HANDLE
IT. AND THAT IS THE RIGHT WAY. DUCKETT OVERLY EMOTIONAL, DON’T GET ANGRY, DON’T GET OFFENSIVE. JUST LET THEM KNOW THIS IS WHERE YOU ARE ADVERTISING, ARE YOU
COMFORTABLE WITH THAT? AND A LOT OF COMPANIES ARE NOT.

  1. It's not about shaming. Most of these companies don't know their ads are on Breitbart. And they don't know what kind of content Breitbart distributes. So taking a screenshot of an ad next to a nasty Breit headline and sending it to the company so they know their brand is next to the garbage is a badass idea.

  2. Shout out the TYT trolls. In this video, you managed to get here before everyone else like the obsessive losers you are. TYT thanks you for the views and the comments.

  3. *It doesn't matter. It's Robert Mercer that is the principle founding source for Breitbart, not the advertisers.* Robert Mercer, as a Billionaire has plenty of money to fund Breitbart. Robert Mercer has already donated a large sum of money to the DNC (Democratic National Committee) over the years, in case you don't know. And Robert Mercer is the guy who had supported Trump through a large swath of money via SuperPAC, and most memebers of Trump's team are recommended by Robert Mercer.

  4. About time. And it's totally okay to punch a nazi. You just have to let them swing first, so you can salve your conscience with 'it was self defense'. See World War II for further details.

  5. Do Beitbart readers really have that much disposable income that it's worth advertising on their site? Half their readership is composed of unemployed or underemployed white males still living at home who want to blame their problems on other people. "It's not my fault I don't have a job. It's the Jews fault, it's the Muslims fault, the gays fault, the transgenders fault etc etc. Really, It's all a conspiracy to make me sit at home on my ass and do nothing with my life."

  6. Good. Alt-Reich Bannon is all the time complaining about corporate media. It's time those corporations realize they've made deals with the devil & pull out.

  7. I know the guy that started this movement, lol. He posts on gamefaqs.

    Pretty funny. Something so small can be this damaging.

  8. Apparently, malware wormers still have no qualms with giving Breitbart business. And Brietbart still has no qualms taking their money…

  9. ohhh thats rich Ana kasparian telling another human to not be emotional hahaha like when she was but hurt and crying when trump won or said that she was way better than any woman who voted for trump. im blinded by all the virtue signaling. give it a rest your a joke

  10. I'm a social democrat, but please do not use Buzzford as a source or citation. They aren't trusted Besides, they aren't a news source– they are an infotainment site just like CNN. They want clicks and revenue instead of trying to truly be journalist. Journalism is starting to become a joke and it needs reversed or it will go away completely. I'm ore to the left of the average American, just look at my picture. I just hate sites like Buzzfeed being taken credibly. We need real journalism now more than ever. That goes to you too, TYT. I expect to be attacked, so give it your est shot I guess.

  11. Hehe we really do spend days debating whether it is ok to punch a Nazi – though in the end we tend to agree that it is and any assault charges gained are a badge of honour.

  12. Breitbart is the mouthpiece of the Trump presidency. Advertising is of no consequence. The money and influence will go Breitbart one way or another. There are plenty of billionaires out there who see Trump as means to their end.

  13. 2:16 to 2:50 is an excellent example of facism every single word is a demonstration of what it is to be a low functioning narcissistic.

  14. Gee and this is such a great idea I see NO repercussions such as Steve Bannon using his newfound political powers to destroy, deport, and screw over said companies….

  15. not ok to punch a Nazi. Of course, if they're rounding up people for extermination it's fine to resist. But not just because you don't like them and their views. In America, we value free speech enough to defend the right for people to say things even that we find objectionable.

  16. "progessives debate for days whether its ok to punch a nazi or not". ya you idiot, it shouldnt take you days, thats the problem, you dont have a right to punch other people in the face.

  17. "progessives debate for days whether its ok to punch a nazi or not" nope. liberals do. slight difference. Progressives, hard leftists etc would agree that punching nazis is essential for your everyday health.

  18. Hilarious Ana thinks debating whether to physically assault a non violent person over his thoughts is noble.
    Just another example of how far into their echo chamber regressives are.

  19. companies can advertise where they see fit. But we're entitled to shout at them and they're entitled to change their mind when they remember that they're sacrificing larger demographics in favour of smaller ones. Say what you want about hardcore capitalists they'll kill your grandma for spare change but they won't want to be perceived as racist as long as racism is still pretty damn unpopular. At least among the majority.

  20. There would be less nazis if it were socially acceptable to punch them. They are essentially cowards.. It would drive them back underground where they belong.

  21. So Anna thinks its ok to punch a nazi? And she thinks it is a compliment to say that progressives debate about punching nazis instead of outright rejecting it? Wow.

  22. Dear Young Turks,
    I love your show and I love the great job you do, but I think this isn't your best piece.
    Regardless of what you may think about Breitbart, it is a very dangerous development when pressure is being applied on businesse not to buy from websites who's views doesn't match your own.
    Yes, sure. To hell with breitbart, but as far as I know they're not in the business of mass murder like the leaders of government you guys keep electing. I would much rather see companies shamed who buy from or sell to the government of the united states and not only when bribery is involved.
    Besides, I just checked the website and many of the Ads I see are from google adsense, so based on the pages you've visited previously you will be seeing targeted ads to your interest.
    Hard to shame everybody who ever placed their ads there.
    And btw: that IS a form of censorship.

  23. inbred ,gunnuts ,bible thumpers ,racist,fact free thats a republican bretbair fans bretbair is fake news sad !!!!!

  24. Its amazing that all the haters can't hear the sarcasm in her voice. Regardless, we're all human with faults. No one is perfect but the difference with Libs is that we have a basic understanding of what it means to have a true Civilized Society.

  25. I am very disappointed to hear that Breitbart had major advertisers. Even multinational companies should draw the line somewhere.

  26. "Breitbart did nazi this coming" – Video Description

    A NAZI JOKE! Quick, someone call the Wall Street Journal, we have a serious problem!

  27. 2 Reasons I could never be a Giant:
    1) I- like every self-respecting internet user should- have an ad blocker.
    2) It would mean going to breitbart.com

  28. So many unemployed people that shouldnt waste 8 hours/day on silencing other peoples and companies voice instead GET A FUCKING JOB.
    This is what happens when you take social justice courses you become a welfare bum with no real education and rioting in the streets.

  29. The only debate we should have about punching Nazis is if a punch is damaging enough. I personally prefer shooting them.

  30. Bannon looks like the drunk guy sitting at the end of the bar at the Moose Lodge every time I go, even if it's been weeks! The same dirty hair and gross khakis- only thing missing is the plaid fleece jacket that smells like kerosene. Gross!

  31. Sleeping Giant is an anonymous group. Who funds them? The Saudis? Some communist group against freedom of speech?

    They've targeted Breitbart and therebel.media Is this because the editors are Jewish? Is Sleeping Giant anti-Jewish? Are they run by Antifa? The group who won't let people speak at universities? Therebel.media and Breitbart speak for minorities who don't get a chance to speak. They are mutli racial and muti religious news organizations.

    See therebel.media for more information. Judge for yourselves about groups wanting to shut down legal free speech. What they say by their campaign and these companies is that viewers of Breitbart and therebel.media are offensive.

    Watch Dave Ruben's reasons for leaving the Young Turks. They do not support free speech. They do not let viewers think for themselves.
