Sample Letter

You can use this form letter to write sponsors. You can also edit and use elements to form your own letter:

Dear OWN NETWORK Advertisers:

I am a loyal viewer of The Oprah Winfrey Network. Because of Oprah Winfrey’s apparent support of a one-sided, sensationalist documentary, I am making the informed decision not to support companies that advertise on OWN. I feel that you have the right to know why you may be losing my business.

Ms. Winfrey hosted a one-sided, horribly biased interview on HBO entitled, “After Neverland.” She interviewed three men: Dan Reed (Documentarian), Wade Robson and James Safechuck. The latter have accused music icon, the late Michael Jackson of sexually molesting them.

Oprah Winfrey failed (much like the documentary, Leaving Neverland) to vet, and properly question the accusers. She failed to present exculpatory evidence, which would have provided a counterpoint to the claims of Safechuck and Robson.

There’s enough legal evidence to prove that both Safechuck and Robson have repeatedly lied. The evidence is so overwhelming and easily found online that a teenager could find it. Oprah either knew about and suppressed this information, or she didn’t bother to do her due diligence as a journalist. It is dangerous for a trusted media icon such as Winfrey to present a biased propaganda piece as fact. It’s disheartening and it can even be considered offensive and prejudicial.

Until these issues are addressed and remedied, I will not watch The OWN Network. Furthermore, until your company discontinues your relationship with The OWN Network, I will not purchase your products or services.

How can this situation be remedied:

The OWN Network should produce and distribute an interview or documentary with all the counter arguments against these two accusers. This should be broadcast on The OWN Network. We are asking for fairness so the public can make an informed decision about who and what to believe. Your company can help facilitate this by directing the OWN Network to provide a fair and balanced program regarding these two accusers and their documentary.

Until then, please consider severing your ties with The OWN network and its individual programs and spend your advertising budget in areas that will help true victims of sexual abuse. It is never acceptable for a company to support the intentional distribution of misinformation and bias.

Sincerely,

Your Name
Your City/State
