Back when it took a little more effort to organize One Million Insert-Group-Here, companies took news of boycotts a little more seriously. Now that kittens and baby polar bears can have more than a million Facebook friends and anyone can make the news, it might take more than cage rattling to get a firm to back down. This time it's the Parents Television Council (PTC) shaking fists at Chrysler because of The Pentastar's advertising during NBC's "The Playboy Club".
Parents Television Council
Parents Television Council has it out for General Motors, Toyota, Volkswagen, DaimlerChrysler and Nissan due to the companies' support of "edgy" television shows over more wholesome content. Ford, on the other hand, got props from PTC thanks to its sponsorship of American Idol.
