If you watch FOX News, you would think that Bill O'Reilly's
despicable smear heroic efforts against JetBlue for sponsoring YearlyKos have succeeded. Well, you would be wrong. On tonight's "Factor," BillO claimed that JetBlue has decided to pull out of the event. The only problem? It's not true. BillO says there is no room in America for Kos and has compared it to the KKK and the Nazis, but he's not a hater....No, no, no...
So, many of you may have seen the erroneous report that JetBlue has canceled the YearlyKos sponsorship. Well, like nearly everything you see on the Faux News channel, that report is out and out false.
Here are the facts:
- JetBlue confirmed that it will remain a sponsor of the YearlyKos Convention. As a sponsor, it donated 10 free roundtrip JetBlue tickets for speakers and staff to fly to and from the convention.
- JetBlue has confirmed that its logo will remain on the YearlyKos frontpage as an in-kind sponsor.
JetBlue has acted as real heroes here. They have put up with 1,000's of vicious, hateful emails as a result of Faux News's false reporting. And yet they are standing by us.
Please show JetBlue some love. The netroots needs corporate sponsors like them -- please show them that sponsoring the netroots is worth it.
