Orbitz to Dumbest Website on Internet: Pound Sand


FAIL.
The dumbest website on the internet, Media Matters, tried to coerce travel giant Orbitz into pulling their ads from FOX News.

Orbitz told them to pound sand.

Mediaite reported:

The effort by liberal media watchdog group Media Matters to convince half a dozen leading national advertisers to pull their dollars from the Fox News Channel got a high-profile snub Thursday when Orbitz, the travel company, not only declined to participate, but fired back at Media Matters, calling the “Drop Fox” campaign a “smear effort.”

According to the Drop Fox website, Orbitz is one of seven key advertisers targeted, including Best Western, Priceline, Delta Airlines, Ocean Spray, Netflix and Southwest Airlines…

…Orbitz shot back, describing Media Matters as “a political organization that has been funded pretty extensively to go after one network, and we aren’t going to engage in that fight,” Orbitz spokesman Brian Hoyt told The Hollywood Reporter:

“We have a strict policy of tolerance and non-discrimination, and that means we don’t favor one political side over another. Tolerance is a two-way street,” he said. “We’re going to advertise on conservative TV stations, liberal TV stations and — if there are any out there — unbiased news broadcasts.”
