Hit The New Republic in the Pocketbook

Bob at Confederate Yankee is fighting back against The New Republic and their continued obfuscation in the Scott Thomas Beauchamp incident. Chickenhawk Express is fully on board with this ...

From Confederate Yankee...
Advertising with The New Republic represents a tacit support of their on-going support of an obvious lie, a continuing, unapologetic assault on the reputation of an American Army unit presently deployed in combat.

Advertising in The New Republic sends a message that advertisers do not care about journalistic ethics, or what most would consider editorial fraud.

I would ask advertisers to pull all of their advertising from the print edition of The New Republic and until the senior editors responsible for this debacle are disciplined, with those at the top resigning.

The New Republic doesn't have an obligation to support the troops, or support the war in Iraq. It does have an obligation to retract stories for which they can provide no support.
