False news report-RADICAL RIGHT -- FORD MOTOR CO. CAVES TO RIGHT WING'S HOMOPHOBIC AGENDA:


Ford Motor Company has announced that "it will cut back on advertising in
gay-oriented publications" after the right-wing American Family Association
(AFA) threatened a boycott of the company for Ford's "track record for
supporting the homosexual agenda." In the past, Ford received praise from
gay rights organizations, promoting LGBT workplace diversity and donating to
gay causes, including the Human Rights Campaign. While Jaguar and Land Rover
ads will be pulled from gay publications, a Ford spokesperson could not
confirm whether donations to LGBT organizations will continue. AFA chairman,
Donald E. Wildmon, was pleased with Ford's decision: "They've heard our
concerns," he said. "They are acting on our concerns." The right-wing
Christian organization, Focus on the Family, was less successful in
convincing its banker, Wells Fargo, to change its agenda. Focus has fired
Wells Fargo after the banking company's decision to make a matching grant to
the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD).
