All major companies except Procter & Gamble stop advertising on Current TV before official name changed to Al Jazeera America.

One hundred eighteen (118) companies stop advertising.

All major companies except Procter & Gamble stop advertising on CurrentTV before official name change to Al Jazeera America.  

One hundred eighteen (118) companies stop advertising.   

CurrentTV officially became Al Jazeera America and started airing Al Jazeera content on August 20, 2013.

Al Jazeera America made their start with only one major company advertising on the network thanks to the support of thousands of Florida Family Association supporters.

Florida Family Association’s:

  • Weekly contact with top officials at the companies that advertised on Al Jazeera America influenced 106 companies to stop advertising.
  • Supporters who sent emails to companies that advertised on Al Jazeera America influenced 12 companies to stop advertising.
  • Overall efforts influenced 118 companies to stop advertising.  See list posted below.

Florida Family Association tapes fourteen hours of programing on Al Jazeera America (formerly CurrentTV) every day.  The Florida Family Association office communicates with each advertiser no less than once per week.  This monitoring effort and contact with companies influenced 105 companies to stop advertising on Al Jazeera America.

Companies that continue to advertise after receiving emails from the Florida Family Association office are categorized as a major corporation, smaller company or non-profit organization (free) and rated from most frequent to least frequent.  Florida Family Association features the top advertisers in email campaigns and web articles.  Major companies were targeted one at a time because there were so few of them.  Some smaller companies, even with frequent ads, may never be targeted with a campaign because of their inferior reputation.

Florida Family Association launched twelve email campaigns that were all successful in influencing the thirteen companies to stop advertising on Al Jazeera America thanks to thousands of emails sent by FFA supporters.  All of the following companies, targeted in an email campaign, stopped advertising:  ADT, Allstate, Chrysler Group (Dodge Dart, Fiat) E-Trade, Foster Grant, Hershey, KIA, Nestle (Gerber Life Insur.), Pfizer, Reckitt Benckiser plc, Red Lobster and Reputation.com. 

Procter & Gamble, the thirteenth email campaign, stopped advertising for several days after Florida Family  Association launched an online campaign regarding their advertising.   Unfortunately, Procter & Gamble  started  advertising Head & Shoulders and Gillette again after Florida Family Association deactivated the email campaign.  Procter & Gamble is the ONLY MAJOR company advertising on Al Jazeera America.

Additionally, many companies, more than for any other issue, contacted the Florida Family Association office to communicate their decision not to advertise again.  The companies that contacted Florida Family Association to communicate their intentions to pull off of Al Jazeera America include:  Approved Colleges, Binder & Binder, Craftmatic, Denny’s, DeVry University, Disaronno, Dream Brands, FabriClear, Harvest Direct, Heineken, iCan, Laser Spine Institute, Life Alert, National Collector’s Mint, Plymouth Direct, PODS, TD Ameritrade and The Tax Resolvers.

The use of advertising time by Al Jazeera America has been measured as follows: 18% for promotion of the channel and/or cable company, 7% for promotion of five non-profit organizations and 75% for advertising of fifteen small companies.  The breakdown for the channel's advertising time, as of August 20, 2013, is posted in the second table below.

IT IS IMPORTANT to encourage Corporate America NOT to advertise on Al Jazeera America because:

  • Cable companies will not make a profit from advertising if there are no companies advertising on the channel.
  • American consumer dollars used to pay for goods and services provided by Corporate America should not go to support Al Jazeera.
  • Corporate America brands appearing on the channel give implied approval to Al Jazeera.
  • The policies of Corporate America may eventually be challenged to conform to the standards of Al Jazeera in order to reach the growing Muslim population in the United States.

REGARDLESS OF HOW MUCH OIL MONEY Al Jazeera spends to keep their American channel alive Corporate America must be vigorously challenged not to support the channel for the above reasons.

Florida Family Association deeply appreciates the support of CreepingSharia and BareNakedIslam.com for posting Floridafamily.org reports regarding these web campaigns that influenced some many companies to stop advertising on Al Jazeera America.

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 CurrentTV channel in December 2012.  The CurrentTV name was changed to Al Jazeera America on August 20, 2013.
