More companies stop advertising on Al Jazeera America.
155 companies have stopped advertising.
Two more companies have responded to communications from the Florida Family Association office stating that they will not advertise on Al Jazeera America. The email below from Ilawsuit.com stated "our ad was aired originally and then again without our permission or knowledge."
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 head of Hamas and supports the Muslim Brotherhood.
Florida Family Association tapes ten hours of programing on Al Jazeera America every day. The Florida Family Association office communicates with each advertiser no less than once per week. Top advertisers are strategically featured one at a time because there are so few of them.
Clear Choice Dental and iLawsuit.com responded to communications from the Florida Family Association office with emails posted below.

Please see response below from my Chief Marketing Officer. We have never intentionally advertised on Al Jazeera America, but as you can see it may have occurred inadvertently in a package buy. InterMedia is our ad buyer, and we have notified them that we do not wish to advertise on that station.

I assure you we have taken every step to ensure our ads are not airing on this network. I assure you we are in no way paying to have our ads run on this network. I share in your frustration and disappointment that our ad aired again.
We have notified Comcast that our ads appeared and that we never bought advertising on that network. We further notified Comcast to confirm our ads would not run there again.
Apparently somehow our ad was aired originally and then again without our permission or knowledge.
We are now looking at legal action and are diligently following up on this matter.
I sincerely appreciate you making me aware of this. Please notify me if you see our ads again and thank you for your patience.

Less than ten companies have advertised during any one week since October 6, 2013.
