From the "Barbara Walters 'offended' by BFIP" thread

Quote:
This is the full list of all the TV commercials I saw on The View last week, the week before the Nurse-In in NY, from Monday May 30 to Friday June 3, 2005. (This includes the ads I listed in my previous two posts on this thread. ) I hope I haven't made too many mistakes!

If you have been offended by Barbara Walters bashing nursing in public,

or upset when a View host announced how wonderful it is that Elisabeth is starting to give her baby formula, and encouraged the audience to applaud,

or are sick of Star Jones bashing breastfeeding on the show, etc. etc.

you can tell the advertisers what you think!!!!

Listed by name of Parent Company
