…it’s interesting to note that Whaleoil no longer carry’s the Canon logo when bragging about his media award. Has Canon asked him o remove it as well?

If we want a better democracy, it starts by having the civic ethics to not fund hate speech sites like Whaleoil.


  1. Does this also mean Fonterra are no longer going to pay Carrick Graham to disseminate his vile abuse of breastfeeding advocates?

  2. Keep it rolling, Even the US hate speech merchant Rush limbaugh is hurting due continuing losses of advertisers that do not want to be associated with right wing fuckwittery.

    Bravo Bomber.

  3. I wrote to 2 degrees, my phone company and congratulated them on their action of pulling their advertising from Whale Oil

  4. 1. You forgot to mention that 2 degrees are also boycotting you.

    2. Whale oil still has more readers than you.

    3. You can delete this if you like but the fact that you have deleted my post each time I have pointed out 2 degrees are also boycotting you shows that a) you know it is true and b) you are not being entirely balanced and honest with us.

    • Erm…advocate of Whaleshit website has the temerity to talk about ‘ balance ‘ .

      As for greater readership base A) bots B) subtract bots from declining support base for true numbers , please.

  5. Your final sentence is counter intuitive. Democracy is about allowing all voices a place, you needn’t agree but you must give them their space. Otherwise you just end up with group think.
