It appears that JetBlue airlines is sponsoring the Daily Kos convention of the Nutroots. Nothing all that wrong on the surface. Except that JetBlue is the only sponsor of the convention of lefty bloggers. So, why the fuss.
As Dean Barnett http://hughhewitt.com points out that JetBlue is not a Democrat or liberal airline. Thus, will they sponsor a convention of righty bloggers?
No one knows because when a producer for the O'Reily Factor http://FoxNews.com confronted the new CEO of JetBlue in a recent episode of the Factor.
Here is why this is a story.
When an airline flown by many Americans and non-Americans openly supports a fringe group not just in political money but a sponsorship, it makes those who do not support the views on the Daily Kos wonder what are the values and views of the airline that they choose to fly on? If JetBlue sponsors the convention of some of the most vile bloggers, does JetBlue think those views are a-ok?
Here is another problem, the new CEO should not avoid answering pointed questions. By doing that, it keeps a potential non-story going.
As they say at Fox News Channel, I report, you decide. But I will not cloud your judgement except to say I will think twice before ever flying on JetBlue.
