Who sponsors "The Factor"?

How can I find out what products and services sponsor "The O'Reilly Factor" on Fox?

I'm planning to organize a targeted boycott of "The Factor" and need accurate, up-to-date information about what products and services sponsor the show. However, I live in Canada and don't get Fox News and online clips of The Factor don't usually include the commercials. Google turned up an article that lists some sponsors as of January 2007, but I'd like to be able to verify that information and keep tabs on new sponsors and those who drop out.

Best answer: -
The link to NewsHounds.us provides a list of sponsors, amended on April 25, 2007, so I think they must periodically update their list.

Also, maybe the people at Oreilly-sucks.com could be helpful; if not the owners, then maybe those posting to their forum...

MediaMatters might be a good place to check out, although they seem to only list corporate contact information for Fox News (such as on this item.)

As NYScott mentioned, NewsHounds.us is probably your best bet, but don't forget to check out Sweet Jesus I Hate Bill O'Reilly ("an organization of hope") on principle alone.

Response by poster: Thanks for the links. An ideal solution would be for me to be able to monitor the show myself. Is there any way I can stream the actual feed online?

I've never seen The Factor, so I'm not trying to make any political statement here, but I think it's funny that you're trying to boycott a show that you can't even watch. FWIW, I'm boycotting all television from Quebec myself. Damn quebeckers.

Response by poster: I can see the humour in your observation, terceiro. I don't get the show pumped into my living room, but I follow The Factor closely online and I'm familiar with both O'Reilly and his television and radio shows. Unfortunately, not having it as part of my cable line-up means I'm not familiar with the show's sponsors, hence my question.
