If you saw our ad on Tucker Carlson’s show, you’re right to be upset. We are too. While we did place our ad with Fox, we did not know it would air on a show so repugnant and at odds with our mission and values. We are blacklisting the show going forward. We are deeply sorry.

It’s striking how the word “blacklisting” has gone from in the 1970s being a terrible McCarthyite offense against freedom to something that corporations now proudly advertise that they do to show how wokely virtuous they are.
