I guess that little boycott worked…Glenn Beck’s show has been dropped by FAUX News, and he will stop using his little chalk board later this year. Who gets the chalk board you ask, well, some on FAUX News are musing about that too.
Nearly 400 advertisers who do business with Fox News refused to advertise on his show. Beck’s ratings declined the most of any Fox News show in the first quarter: down 37 percent with viewers ages 25 to 54, and 30 percent among all viewers, compared with the first quarter of 2010.
Remember these types of stories from 2009….well…it worked!
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.
