    Well I hate to break it to you but there are left wing shady fringe groups who use paranoia and scare tactics. you can't just go after the right wing ones Mario.

    Glee is on FOX Perez. Come on. It is simply a ruse to create animosity toward a network that the PEW people think is more fair than any other. Which network made Chris Coffer the gay posterboy? I'm booking on Orbitz from now on!

    This is dumb. Orbitz is the gayest travel company out there.

    Orbitz has a new friend in me. Thanks for telling me about them wanker.

    The only ones that should be apologizing is Courage Campaign. I could never have respect for a company that talks like that. Shame on them using the anti-gay card. Courage Campaign sounds pretty cowardly to me.

    You are absolutely ridiculous! So what if Orbitz has an ad on Fox? It's their right and choice to do that! They shouldn't have to remove it just because some group asked them to! I'm all for equality, but I think things are going too far and getting too out of hand. Get over it.

    I love your site Perez but in this I disagree, using bully tactics is not the way to go. All networks have a right to free speech we may not agree with that but I am grateful that is the case in this country. What are the anti-gay comments? I watch both CNN and Fox (alot!!) and don't see the outright gay comments. So let's comment on what is what Fox is a conservative channel and for that reason alone is why this group was going after Orbitz.

    I think Fox is a private company and can do and say whatever the hell they want. Get off your high horse. The first amendment is the freedom of speech. So Orbitz can say whatever they want. Of course unless you want to throw out the Constitution and become a communist country where no one can speak their mind at all. Including you Perez.

    VERY COOL! Good for Orbitz. They show their commercials where they will actually be seen… which is why they don't advertise on here ;)

    Maybe if you apologized to them for a couple of months they might throw you a crumb, but I doubt it.

    Fox news is not anti gay! If you are going to accuse them of this please give examples. Where is the evidence? You cannot accuse without proof.

    if orbitz wants to do that, its their biz. those who do not agree cannot avoid using them. easy enough. maybe it will be a bad decision for them.
    note. i beleive when p say fox, he means fox news.

    Re: davezee – d oyou think sean hannity, laura ingraham, & glen beck are for gay marriage, of course not.
    let orbitz advertise there, and if there ar those who disagree, then don't use their service. simple as that.

    This "they have a right to do what they want" argument is ridiculous. I have a right to leave all the lights on in my house then go drive a Hummer across America. Doesn't mean I should! You make a choice. Orbitz chooses to pay Bill O'Reilly's salary so he can compare me marrying my boyfriend to me marrying a goat, and Mike Huckabee to compare homosexuality to drug addiction you can cure. How is that a good thing? Millions of people watch Bill O'Reilly, then turn around and regurgitate whatever homophobic garbage he says at their 14-year-old closeted gay kid. Ads and viewers are the only currency these people deal in. Over 300 advertisers refused to advertise on Glenn Beck and now he's off the air because he's fucking crazy. The same with Lou Dobbs. There are a zillion TV stations, newspapers, billboards, radio stations, blogs, magaines, Hulu ads, and probably other venues I'm forgetting for Orbitz to reach conservative viewers. Courage is asking them to stop funding ONE. You either want the homophobia to stop or you don't. Make a choice.

    Perez, Orbitz could not be gayer. You are just a hysterical bully.



  15. 15

    Completely ridiculous…..I babysit for one of the head honcho's at Orbitz and he's stood up for the company from all this anti-gay BS. They have gay people in their ads and are completely fine with the gay/lesbian/transexual community…and I've heard that from the mouth of someone who is a VP of the company. He is also getting Orbitz to promote volunteer vacations to help local communities including brad pitts organization to rebuild NOLA. This is completely wrong…..

    FOX "NEWS" - NOT FOX…

    They are different entities w/different management. Get your facts straight please.

    Pun intended, haha! ;)



  17. 17

    Orbitz is one of the biggest advertisers in LOGO TV! The even paid big bucks for ”The Drag Race” so so shut to fuck up!!



  18. 18

    Fox has GLEE — the gayest show on tv. Who is that non-profit to demand that Orbitz removes ads? Who do they think they are? They need to back off and stop trying to be bullies.



  19. 19

    GET OVER IT!!!!
    Not everyone is going to agree with everything you say or respond in a manner that suits YOU.
    I am all for equality BUT I am sick and tired of hearing about people like you being offended and demanding apologies left and right. You are single-handedly torpedoing your cause.

    GROW UP. Live and let live, and practice what you preach.

    "Anti-Gay Fox". Oh yeah, that darn network that airs more gay programming and employs more gay actors than any other? That anti-gay network Perez?? You are such a dumbass. How dare this bullshit group try to tell a company where they can and can't advertise. Good for Orbitz, I like them better now.Re: adam12 – Homophobia starts with people like you spouting your agenda and hating anyone who doesn't agree. Having opposing viewpoints is our right, NOT homophobia. I support gay rights, I DO NOT support gays scare-tactic approach to attempt shame anyone who doesn't agree with them. That's nothing but bullying from the other side.
