MINNEAPOLIS, April 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As one of the corporate sponsors of the Davis and Emmer show on News Talk AM 1130, Atomic Data would like to respond to the recent controversy surrounding remarks made by Bob Davis regarding gun control and the Newtown tragedy victims.
At Atomic Data, our corporate mission is to empower people through the use of technology. Technology that facilitates civil, informed, and respectful discussions and decision making amongst businesses, students, communities, and government. We fully understand that people will disagree, and we understand that everyone in this country has a right to speak out, but we don't believe, as Bob Davis seems to, that being mean and resentful is a "liberty." It's disrespectful, and, in Bob's case, it crossed the line of civility.
When you're the kind of company that strives everyday to support community organizations of all kinds, we simply cannot support the kind of things Mr. Davis has been saying on the air. Atomic Data would like to go on the record here: We are all for vigorous debate. But we try to listen as much as we talk, and to be respectful to those with whom we disagree. We strongly believe that nobody needs to be mean – not Bob, not us, not anybody.
At the end of the day, everything we do is for the betterment of our children, spouses, and communities. We feel that over the past several months, Mr. Davis has gone against this deeply held philosophy. As a result, we are pulling our support of the Davis and Emmer show, effective immediately.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please direct them to [email protected]
