MRC's Bozell: Comedy Central's 'JC' Has No Advertiser Support
Of the more than 300 corporate sponsors who have sponsored Comedy Central in the past, not a single one has indicated their intention to buy advertising time on the planned "JC" program should it ever be set to go to broadcast.

"The sponsors understand what the programming department at Comedy Central does not: Religious bigotry is bad business," Bozell noted in a statement.

There is no valid business reason for airing 'JC,'" the Media Research Center founder argued.
