Dear Messrs. Iger, McPherson, and Westin:
We are writing to urge ABC/Disney to stop airing the violent hate speech and racist fearmongering of extreme right-wing radio talk show hosts Melanie Morgan and Brian Sussman on KSFO radio in San Francisco. Morgan, Sussman, and their associates have no right to advocate torture and murder on airwaves that are owned by the American people and licensed to ABC/Disney.
We wonder why ABC/Disney and its sponsors would want to continue to be associated with such extremist views.
