Clorox blatantly lies to defend its advertising at Huffingtonpost.com.
Florida Family Association sent out email alerts the week of September 18, 2017 which reported that Clorox was a top advertiser at Huffingtonpost.com. Thousands of people sent emails to encourage Clorox to stop supporting HuffPost’s propaganda with its advertising dollars.
Denise Hahn, Clorox Consumer Affairs Operations Manager responded to the emails it received with the following email message:
Thank you for reaching out to The Clorox Company about our advertising. We appreciate receiving feedback from our consumers and want to thank you for taking the time to share your opinions. The Clorox Company and our Family of Brands set strict criteria and standards around where our ads are placed to ensure that the media environment and corresponding content reflect our standards. For example, we do not advertise in or on politically focused programs, publications or websites, etc. While we do advertise on Huffington Post, we don’t place our ads in any of the political sections. But in this digital age, it can be difficult to track where our ads may appear. We would welcome you letting us know if you do see one of our ads in an inappropriate context.
However, Clorox is LYING to the public about placement of its ads at Huffingtonpost.com. The following photos of Huffingtonpost.com on a mobile device prove it.
This photo of a cell phone taken on September 21, 2017 8:57 PM shows Clorox’s Liquidplumr at the top of the home page which includes ALL of Huffingtonpost.com’s political trash and social propaganda.
And this cell phone photo was taken two minutes later in the middle of the home page just above a political attack article.
There were several more Clorox ads posted on the home page that were not photographed.
Furthermore, AdChoices does not give advertisers the flexibility to choose to opt out of articles with specific content.
Clorox’s above statement is a blatant lie.
Seventeen examples of Huffington Post’s Islamist propaganda articles are posted at the bottom of this article.
Clorox certainly has the right to advertise in whatever forum it chooses. You have the same right to voice concern regarding the content on such forums and choose to spend your money elsewhere
Florida Family Association has prepared an email for you to send to urge Clorox directors to stop supporting Huffingtonpost.com propaganda with its advertising dollars.
This email will open in your email browser unlike most email campaigns. This is because Clorox is blocking emails from Florida Family Association’s email delivery server. If the above link does not open in your email browser or if the email is returned to you please prepare an email using the suggested subject line, content and email addresses provided below.
Cannot believe that Clorox is lying to defend advertising support of Huffingtonpost.com propaganda.
I was very disappointed to learn that Clorox is blatantly lying about its advertising at Huffingtonpost.com who calls American military racists, fundraises for CAIR, defends the Muslim Brotherhood and publishes Islamist propaganda.
Please stop supporting Huffington Post propaganda with Clorox advertising dollars.
