MSM, Spocko, KSFO and Disney

Here is a link to the story that will run on the 11PM news in San Francisco.
At least two major corporations have pulled their advertisements from radio station KSFO-AM after bloggers publicized clips of broadcasts in which hosts took aim at politicians and a listener believed to be Muslim.

A series of remarks that aired on KSFO over the past year has sparked fury in the blogosphere. In recordings made by one blogger and posted online, talk show host Brian Sussman, who is a former CBS 5 weathercaster, grills a listener over whether the man is Muslim.
More advertisers will follow if you just give them a chance. Ask them why they support hate when there are other alternatives.
