    A source familiar with the convention's fundraising told The Hill on Thursday that the companies had never planned on sponsoring the convention and that the Bloomberg report was based on information from a year ago.

    Still, it reminds me of who to boycott. Sometimes our $$$ are all we have to tell companies what we think!

    They aren't sponsoring the Democratic convention either. Just a clickbait nonstory.
