Glenn Beck Lost Twenty Companies As They Pulled Their Ads From TV Show

August 17, 2009

This is awesome news!!

I am so proud that the values we share as Americans rise above the vile and mean-spirited rants from Glenn Beck.  The FAUX  News host uses his alcoholic and drug damaged brain to spew off for ratings.  But American companies have said no more!   We now even have Wal-Mart saying enough!  That was a shocker to see.  Ally Bank is also to be commended for doing the correct thing.  Best Buy is my favorite toy store (for adults) and so I am most pleased to see they too have made the ethical choice not to spend money on Beck’s hate-filled tirades. 

Eight more Glenn Beck advertisers, including Wal-Mart – the world’s largest retailer – have confirmed to ColorOfChange.org that they pulled their ads from the controversial Fox News Channel broadcaster’s eponymous show. Allergan (maker of Restasis), Ally Bank (a unit of GMAC Financial Services), Best Buy, Broadview Security, CVS, Re-Bath, Travelocity and Wal-Mart join the dozen other companies who previously distanced themselves from Beck.

Twenty companies have pulled their ads from Beck’s showin just the last two weeks. The moves come after the Fox News host called President Obama a “racist” who “has a deep-seated hatred for white people” during an appearance on Fox & Friends. Previous companies who pulled their ads include ConAgra, GEICO, Lawyers.com, Men’s Wearhouse, Procter & Gamble, Progressive Insurance, RadioShack, Roche, SC Johnson, Sanofi-Aventis, Sargento, and State Farm Insurance.

“We are heartened to see so many corporate citizens step up in support of our campaign against Glenn Beck,” said James Rucker, executive director of ColorOfChange.org. “Their action sends a clear a message to Glenn Beck: Broadcasters shouldn’t abuse the privilege they enjoy by spewing dangerous and racially charged hate language over the air. No matter their political affiliation, hate language doesn’t belong in our national dialogue.”

    Thanks for commenting.

    Thought I would let you know that now there are at least 57 companies that you need to boycott.
