HERSHEY'S PULLS ADVERTISING

from

Al Jazeera America

The well known chocolate candies sound innocent and tasty, right?

As some of you may already know, the Florida Family Association brought to our attention in their May 2013 Newsletter, that the Hershey Company was a top advertiser on Al Jazeera America. This is the TV station previously owned by Al Gore and he sold it to Al Jazeera. The name of this TV Station in the U. S. is Current TV. Florida Family Association launched an email campaign aimed at several key executives of The Hershey Company requesting they reconsider their advertising on Current TV.

Because of the strong, grassroots email, phone & snail mail campaign, we are happy to report to you that The Hershey Company has reconsidered their advertising on Current TV. As of this writing, they have suspended their advertising.  

Each voice can make a difference. We at ACT! Space Coast will do our best to keep you posted on this and other similar situations. The individual consumer can still have power to influence. Keep it up!
