Spocko versus the Mouse

by Jay Stevens 

And you wonder why I dislike corporate power?

Take, for example, the case of Spocko the blogger. He objected to the violent ranting of a San-Francisco-based radio talk-show host broadcasting on a Disney-owned station. The blogger went on a one-man crusade and penned letters to sponsors of the station — AT&T, Netflix, Bank of America, eg — including snippets of the show’s rhetoric (on Pelosi, “we’ve got a bulleye painted on her big, wide laughing eyes”; on Indonesia, “Indonesia is just another enemy Muslim nation…You keep screwing around with stuff like this, we’re going to kill a bunch of you. Millions of you”).

Some of the sponsors dropped the show.

Disney-owned ABC took down Spocko’s site.

Read it all. Weep.

Firedoglake’s TRex urges us to get involved.
