Boycott Chris Matthews

It looks like the MSNBC host has gone too far with that mouth of his... over at "An Open Letter to Chris Matthews," organizers are demanding an apology from Hardball's front man, and calling for a boycott of the show. In the past few weeks, he's equated Michael Moore with Osama bin Laden and made homophobic slurs with Don Imus... plus the number of other quotes that blogger Dale Strayton gathered, which PEEK reported on.

Figuring that the way to target the show's boycott is through its advertising, they've listed the show's advertisers and contact information, including Toyota, TurboTax and Verizon. Additionally, they've provided MSNBC executive contact information. Don't let Matthews get away with this kind of slandering and slurring: visit the Open Letter To Chris Matthews for more information today.
