KSFO Down Another Advertiser

According to Spocko's Brain, KSFO hate radio has lost another advertiser. After being made aware of what the ABC/Disney outlet considered entertainment, the Michigan Economic Development Corporation decided to not run any additional ads on the station.

Here is part of the exchange between MEDC executives and bluestatedon as reported on Daily Kos.
After I read last week that the Michigan Economic Development Corporation had advertised on KSFO, I sent emails to James Epolito, MEDC President and CEO, and Lisa Dancsok, MEDC VP for Marketing, Communications and Legislative Affairs, to inform them of the situation. I received a personal response via email that evening from Ms. Dancsok, informing me that they were investigating the situation immediately.

Yesterday, I received a phone call from Jim Epolito himself. He'd already met with with Governor Granholm about the situation, and needless to say she was horrified that money had been spent on advertising on that station.
Pick a company from the list of KSFO advertisers and see if that organizations management isn't just as "horrified" by being associated with the extreme hate and violence filled rhetoric that constitutes "entertainment" on KSFO.
