ColorOfChange.org gets big results in call for advertisers to drop Fox’s Glen Beck
An organized movement is claiming success in getting advertisers to pull commercials from the Fox News cable network’s “Glen Beck” show after the host made on-air assertions that President Barack Obama is a “racist” and has “a deep-seated hatred for white people.”
Since the advocacy Web site, ColorOfChange.org, created a petition directed to advertisers appearing on “Glen Beck,” more than 45,000 have signed on urging advertisers to remove their ads. Among the companies that have agreed to do so are Procter & Gamble, Walmart, Geico Insurance, Men’s Wearhouse, Sargento Cheese, Lawyers.com and Progressive Insurance.
