I just called up a reasonably nice lady at Kellogg' Consumer Affairs Department at 800-962-1413 (thanks, Amren commenter for the number).
I had a nice little
I had just called to get a word in, is all. After I told her that we would buy no more Cheese-its or Special K, and switch to Cheerios, she kept up the BS a bit too long, so I had to repeat myself about the Cheerios a number of times to get her to hang up first. Ha!
(I also ran the numbers for her - worst case scenario, losing $20/week or so from each Breitbart reading junk-food eater times, what 45 million viewers of the site times 52 weeks in a year - multiplies out to some serious mullah. Yes, I know this is a rectal-extraction-based order-of-magnitude highball estimate.)
Full Disclosure: All this packaged crap is slowly killing us - so it's not like the family eats much of this stuff anyway. It's hard to boycott people when you never participate to begin with - one of the problems with being a minimalist.
Fuller Disclosure: Breitbart is pretty damn unreadable with my browswers anyway - all kinds of crap pops up and keeps moving the page around while I'm trying to read the damn article itself. It's almost worthless, but nothing against the content. In fact, come to think of it, maybe it's the Kelloggs ads to begin with that are dicking up the site.
I'm confused at this point, so I may just install Adblock while I'm having a snack of Cheerios.
Come on guys, it's all Adblock nowadays.
