Today marks the end of ColorofChange.org’s campaign against Glenn Beck.
It was almost two years ago when Beck went on “Fox & Friends” and said that Pres. Obama had “a deep-seeded hatred for white people.”
That marked the begining of a campaign to get advertisers to remove ads from Beck’s Fox News show. ColorofChange.org claims the campaign resulted in the the departure of over 300 advertisers from Beck’s show. “We are happy to see Glenn Beck’s show come to an end,” said Rashad Robinson, executive director of ColorofChange.org.
The group ran a full-page ad in Wednesday’s New York Daily News addressed to News Corp. chairman Rupert Murdoch and Fox News CEO Roger Ailes asking the executives to end what it claims is a “longstanding pattern of Fox News and Fox Business commentators perpetuating race-based fears.”
