Queer eye advertisers targeted

The conservative Montana Family Coalition really don't like the show Queer Eye for the Straight Guy - they think it's trash and want it taken off TV, as if they never heard of a remote control and the ability to TiVo stuff they'd rather like to see.

Julie Millam, the coalition's executive director, managed to spew this hurtful garbage:
"To me, that's not a reality show about gay people," Millam said. "A really good reality show for gay people would be five gay men dying of AIDS."

Now the group plan to launch a campaign to get the show off the air - but instead of targeting the TV network, they will target advertisers who air commercials during the show, boycotting their products and mailing them complaints.
