Orbitz Snubs Media Matters’ ‘Drop Fox’ Campaign: ‘We Aren’t Going To Engage In That Fight’

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.”

I think Drop Fox is one of the most exciting things happening right now.

As near as I can find, Orbitz 's largest investor is Travelport, owned by Blackstone Group, which is now public but was co-founded by Peter G. Peterson. He's the right wing billionaire ideologue who has his filthy fingers in a lot of right wing astroturf groups and funding organizations for extreme right wing positions and politicians.

You want to be unemployed instantly in Orbitz, then cross Peterson. He and Rupert Murdoch are joined at the hip in their commitment to make the world safe and prosperous for the extremely rich.

Follow the money.
