- EchoStar/DISH Network
"As an equal opportunity employer, EchoStar's corporate culture does not reflect or support Dr. Laura's views. EchoStar supports the right of free speech guaranteed under the First Amendment but we also assert our right to choose where to place our advertising dollars."
- Ohio State Lottery
"The Dr. Laura show is a red flag program on WKRC that we do not advertise on."

- "All of us here are just as outraged to be advertising in the midst of such bigotry. I assure you, that by no means do we share Dr. Schlessinger's views. In fact, we have pulled out all advertisements from running with her show again."
- BoxLot: "We're going to be more intelligent about selectively excluding hateful and bigoted people like her from our advertising mix."
