A Florida-based pro-family organization is spearheading a campaign to convince advertisers to stop sponsoring programing on a broadcasting network that disparages Christianity and advocates for Islamists.

Among conservatives, MSNBC has a reputation of being the most left-wing of all mainstream media outlets, with a veritable "who's who" of far-left radicals like Chris Matthews, Ed Schultz, and Rachel Maddow. David Caton, president of the Florida Family Association (FFA), says MSNBC routinely denigrates Christianity, distorts the truth, and advocates for Islamists.

Caton, David (FFA)"Clearly MSNBC is the most dishonest, most anti-Christian, and most pro-Islamist news network out there, bar none," Caton contends. "And they lead by such a wide gap from even CNN."

He cites several examples of MSNBC's questionable reporting.

"Probably the most infamous one was with Chris Matthews comparing the religious right to the Taliban," the FFA president notes. "Here you have other commentators claiming that the Book of Revelation is a fake book. They fired Pat Buchanan because of the book he wrote and the Christian sentiments that he expressed in his book."

So Caton has been encouraging believers to contact MSNBC advertisers about its biased reporting. As a result, 43 companies discontinued their sponsorship of four prominent MSNBC shows during the last monitoring period.

"We believe over the next six months to a year we will see a large percentage of companies that agree with our position and pull off MSNBC," the conservative advocate predicts.

Caton adds that he is pleased to see that MSNBC continues to trail the Fox News Channel in viewership by a wide margin.
