Tucker Carlson: Why The Patriot Post Refuses Advertising

Ads not only clutter websites and emails but infringe on free speech when advertisers boycott.

This week, there was yet another example of why The Patriot Post has refused, since our inception, to take revenue from advertisers.

Tucker Carlson and Fox News are being boycotted by, among other corporate advertisers, IHOP, the United Explorer credit card, Just For Men, Jaguar Land Rover, Ancestry.com, and Voya Financial. That boycott is because of Carlson’s opposition to illegal immigration, and it’s typical of a growing trend in strong-arm tactics being used by Moveon.org, Media Matters, and other leftist organizations.

The most obvious evidence that The Patriot Post is not subject to such leftist extortion is that our homepage and editions are not cluttered with the often-offensive ads plastered on virtually all mainstream media news sites and in their emails.

Notably, those publications also collect information on your patterns of use and consumer interests, which they then sell to marketers. Unlike the MSM news platforms, we do not violate your privacy. We do not share any information about you to any third party. We are a certified “Ad Free” website and have a very strong and unambiguous privacy policy.

However, there is a more subtle and far more invasive reason The Patriot Post refuses advertising requests: Depending on ad revenue adulterates editorial content and perspective. In short, it infringes on free speech.

As outlined on our Mission and Objective page, The Patriot Post’s budget is funded solely by the voluntary financial support of our fellow Patriots. We are not sustained by any political, special interest, or parent organization, and we do not accept advertising to ensure our advocacy and editorial content is not restrained by commercial influence.
