We’ve been avoiding writing updates about the massive blackhole that’s formed beneath Glenn Beck‘s desk. It’s quickly sucking every advertiser from “The Glenn Beck Program”, aided by ColorOfChange, the 600,000 member strong African-American online political organization.
Today we learned that 11 more advertisers have pledged not to give their money to Beck’s show, according to CoC:
“Eleven new companies whose ads were recently seen during Beck’s program— Binder & Binder, Capital One, The Dannon Company, Discover, HSBC, ICAN Benefit Group Insurance, Infiniti, Jelmar (manufacturer of CLR All-Purpose Cleaner), Jordan McKenna Debt Counseling Network, Mercedes-Benz and Simplex Healthcare (creator of the Diabetes Care Club) — have pledged to ColorOfChange.org to take steps to ensure that their ads don’t run on Beck’s show.”
The ColorOfChange campaign began after Beck called President Obama a racist who “has a deep-seated hatred for white people” during a segment on Fox & Friends.
Beck, who just returned from a week-long vacation, probably expected this to have gone away by now. On the contrary steam appears to be building toward his eventual dismissal from FOX, though that’s just speculation on our part.
