The far-right nut Glenn Beck, who made unbelievably stupid and racial comments about President Obama(comments that defy even unreasonable logic) has had even more sponsorships pull out of his dreadful, integrity-challenged show (although, admittedly, it is popular among the far-right numb skulls). Glenn Beck calling anyone racist is like O.J. Simpson saying he is searching for the real killers.
This is from The Glenn Beck Sucks Blog:
The Thursday Glenn Beck show was the same right-wing propaganda as Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, so I did not review it. But I do have more good news. SpendOnLife.com has pulled all of its advertising from FoxNews.com and ended their relationship with them. So they not only pulled their ads from the Glenn Beck show, they are off of FOX altogether.
And more good news, ten more advertisers have pulled their ads from Glenn Beck’s show, including DirecTV. This brings the total up to 48 companies who have pulled out so far. The companies who said they will pull their ads are: Applebee’s, Bank of America, Bell & Howell, DirecTv, General Mills, Kraft, Regions Financial Corporation, SAM, Travelers Insurance and Vonage. They have pledged to take steps to ensure that their ads don’t run on Beck’s show.
Three of the latest defections — Travelers Insurance, Bell & Howell and DirecTv — join the list of advertisers who claim to have already placed Glenn Beck’s program on a “do not air” list, but whose ads have been seen on Beck’s program, apparently against their wishes.
“We could not be happier with the results of our campaign so far,” said James Rucker, Executive Director of ColorOfChange.org. “All 48 companies that have distanced themselves from Glenn Beck should be applauded for their stance.”
“We are still reaching out to companies whose ads we see during Beck’s nightly program,” Rucker continued. “Based on the fact that many of the recent ads on Beck’s program are for gold coins and News Corp properties, it looks like Fox News Channel is struggling to place advertisements on Beck’s show.”
Hopefully these sponsors will be able to spark Fox News to encourage some kind of change from their out-of-control host.
