Weekly Advertiser Wrap-Up
Here’s this week’s summary of all advertisers I’ve logged this week watching Fox News Channel.

Over 2100 commercials logged the week ending Saturday, February 24, 2018

   • Included Bayer AG (a German pharmaceutical company) this week because many of their products have generic or name brand alternatives. A detailed explanation is here Advertiser Spotlight – Bayer AG pharmaceuticals.
   • Merged Angie’s List, HomeAdvisor, and into its parent company IAC (InterActive Corp) which moves it into one of top advertisers this week.
   • Merged GEICO and Duracell (parent company Berkshire Hathaway) moving it to one of the top advertisers this week.
   • Merged AT&T and DirecTV (parent company AT&T)
