I’m a big supporter of journalism and a free press as vital supports not only to strengthen democracy, but also to inform our civic lives. But journalism should come with a duty of care.

Noting his particularly misogynistic statements, the petition asks five major corporations led by female CEOs to pull their advertising dollars from his show. Here’s to hoping that Progressive Insurance, Sleep Number, General Motors, Enterprise Holdings and GSK all agree to #DropTucker.
