A U.K. campaign group called Stop Funding Hate has called on major advertisers to boycott certain newspapers, notably The Daily Mail, The Daily Express and The Sun. This mirrors the actions of a similar group in the U.S. called Sleeping Giants who have been particularly focused on Breitbart. The groups' point is that the titles they're campaigning against spread hate and division; the opposing point is that whether we agree or disagree with the positions taken up by the owners and editors of these and other papers they should surely be free to express their point of view, always assuming they act within the law (which admittedly they sometimes don't).
