10 Conservative Sites Blacklisted With Breitbart

A few months ago, brands started coming under fire on Twitter for having ads appear on the conservative news site Breitbart. In response, many did pull ads, including advertisers like Allstate and Modcloth. Brands have started taking blacklisting to a new level, including many more conservative sites which should not be lumped in with Breitbart.

“We have had some clients asking if we can ensure their ads do not run on Breitbart or other specific websites, and we have proactively reached out to others to let them know our options when it comes to blocking specific properties and allowing them to review our blacklist,” Marcus Pratt, vice president of insights and technology at Mediasmith, told Digiday. The site also linked to a blacklist reportedly from Mediasmith, which included a broad swath of reputable websites.

    It’s nice of them to let us know that they don’t want our business.

      My thoughts exactly, these companies are only hurting themselves, they don’t seem to understand the illegal voters and dead voters won’t be buying their products.

    This crap works both ways, and hopefully good citizens will make that known.

    I guess feeding the NeverTrump crocodile didn’t save the mainstream conservative sites after all.

    The best thing companies can do is not blacklist anyone.

    Why? Because they’ll piss off a few people that way, but not many. Your typical consumer, even the left-leaning ones, are not likely to be upset because ACME is adverting on National Review.

    But if ACME blacklist enough conservative sites such as National Review, that could produce a widespread conservative consumer revolt.

    This is a very important issue that conservatives need to address. Many ad firms are run by left leaning types that convince companies to blacklist conservative sites while advocating for large contributions to great causes that are administered exclusively by and for leftists ; conservatives or possible conservatives get nothing but contribute to the revenue of leftists. i.e Kelloggs
