Pinch Sulzberger where it hurts

Fedora, a diligent researcher at Free Republic, documents the New York Times history of revealing state military secrets.  
 
In his press conference today, the President indicated he believed an investigation has been launched into the latest, most serious of these leaks——the revelation of methods in NSA's surveillance of contacts between terrorists abroad and their cohorts here.
 
It is time for those who advertise in the NYT and therefore underwrite , however unwittingly, this perfidy to take a stand: Are they for weakening the ability of the US to protect us (and their businesses) or not?
 
I propose they review their advertising budgets, and divert a sizable amount normally spent at the Grey Lady to charitable organizations dedicated to the well being of our servicemen and women and their families, whose burden has been made more difficult by this latest leak. If they find this not to their taste, perhaps we can organize pickets outside their establishments to let consumers know that they care so little about the issue that they are unwilling to take even this small step to express their disapproval of the NYT's outrageous effort to undercut the War on Terror.
 
If the NYT doesn't care and it's advertisers think that's fine, they are moving themselves into the Ground Zero of consumer sentiment.
