Florida Family Association has hired Aerial Messages, Inc. to fly a banner stating PROCTER & GAMBLE SPONSORS JIHAD TV before the Green Bay vs. Cincinnati game on Sunday, September 22, 2013 from 9 am to 1 pm. Many people have nicknamed Al Jazeera America as Jihad TV. The Los Angeles Times reported on August 15, 2013 that “some derisively label the network ‘Jihad TV.’"
Procter & Gamble is airing NFL and Green Bay Packer sanctioned Gillette advertisements on Al Jazeera America. Florida Family Association is targeting Green Bay Packer fans, Cincinnati citizens and Sunday morning church goers with the banner to draw attention to this situation. Procter & Gamble is also airing NFL and Pittsburgh Steeler sanctioned Head and Shoulders advertisements on Al Jazeera America.
Florida Family Association informed Procter & Gamble that they will issue a news release at 3:00 PM on Wednesday, September 18, 2013 regarding the project.

More than sixty companies advertised during the first week that Florida Family Association started contacting advertisers in January 2013.

The names of the 128 companies are posted here at this Floridafamily.org article.
Al Jazeera is a news company that is owned by a non-democratic, monarch styled emirate who does not afford citizens freedom of the press, espouses Islamic Sharia law, backs the leader of Hamas and supports the Muslim Brotherhood. Al Jazeera, headquartered in the Middle East (Doha, Qatar), purchased the Current TV channel at the end of 2012 and officially changed its name to Al Jazeera America on August 20, 2013.
The Wall Street Journal reports: More due diligence might have included a review of the close journalistic coverage over the years of the Al Jazeera Arabic and English broadcasts, which discloses the unsurprising fact that the network reflects the interests of the government that runs it—making it akin to the Vladimir Putin Russia Today and the Beijing Xinhua. The emir of Qatar, Hamid bin Khalifa Al Thani, appointed his cousin as chairman of Al Jazeera. The emir was last in the news for donating $400 million to Hamas.
Yusuf al-Qaradawi hosts the most popular show called al-Sharia wa al-ayah ("Shariah and Life") on Al Jazeera. Qaradawi prayed in a January 9, 2009 sermon during the Gaza War, shown on Al-Jazeera, "Oh Allah, take your enemies, the enemies of Islam. Oh Allah, take the Jews, the treacherous aggressors. Oh Allah, take this profligate, cunning, arrogant band of people. Oh Allah, they have spread much tyranny and corruption in the land. Pour Your wrath upon them, oh our God. Lie in wait for them. Oh Allah, You annihilated the people of Thamoud (Sodom)at the hand of a tyrant, and You annihilated the people of 'Aad with a fierce, icy gale, and You destroyed the Pharaoh and his soldiers - oh Allah, take this oppressive, tyrannical band of people. Oh Allah, take this oppressive, Jewish Zionist band of people. Oh Allah, do not spare a single one of them. Oh Allah, count their numbers, and kill them, down to the very last one."
Procter & Gamble certainly has the right to choose where it spends their advertising dollars. Consumers too have a right to express their objections regarding the same and choose products from companies that do not spend their consumer dollars with Al Jazeera.
There were NO NEW major companies advertising on Al Jazeera America. Procter & Gamble is the only major corporation advertising on the channel.
