Total number of companies that refuse to have ads run on Glenn Beck: 300+

Your efforts are working: In addition to advertiser losses at home, the UK broadcast of Glenn Beck’s show has run for over a year without ads due to your efforts.

Notably: Reports by the New York Daily News, New York Times Magazine and The Washington Post demonstrate that the number of companies unwilling to advertise on Glenn Beck’s show continues to grow to this day…

  • Most recently, on March 23, 2011, New York Daily News reported that the total number of companies that refuse to run ads on Glenn Beck’s show is approaching 400.
  • On September 29, 2010, New York Times Magazine put that number at 296.
  • On March 15, 2010, The Washington Post reported that the number exceeded 200.

Keep it up!

To date (3/30/11), here is a list of statements from a fraction of the total number of advertisers that either pulled ads from or took proactive measures to ensure that their ads do not appear on the Glenn Beck Program in the United States, the U.K., or both. [Note: An advertiser's presence in this list does not suggest or imply endorsement of StopBeck effort. It merely states the simple truth that these companies do not advertise on Glenn Beck's program. For details about individual reasoning, please see the accompanying statement.]

—————

I want to recognize the following organizations’ contributions in holding Glenn Beck accountable for his irresponsible vitriol, propagation of sexism and preying on racial anxiety. So, thank you: Color of Change, SEIU and Media Matters.

And, of course, big thanks to all this participating in the StopBeck Effort.  Your tweets and emails do matter.

Onward we go..

    What is moral about taking what is not yours to take without ones’ permission to do so? Elfersdon is correct about America losing its faith in God. Morals came from faith whether you want to believe in a God or not. America has lost its moral ground and will continue to decline until it wakes up and works to regain it.

    The left is far more full of vitriol than Glenn Beck ever dreamed of being. Give me a break! It is okay if the left does it, and believe me, you all did during George Bush’s presidency. You are all hypocrits!

    While Glenn is somewhat entertaining. As a student of the tactics and operations of the far left from their very origins over the last 125 years or so, Glenn barely scratches the surface. The fundamental problem with all leftist is that they are oblivious to thier past. They cannont fathom the fact their slogans they view as reality, such as ”Truth To Power” originated in circles they despise. A pure fiction taken in the context of ignorance and reincarnated in a bliss of stupidity.  

    Not a very good standard to promote any moral code on any scale. The long history of destruction left behind in the wake of this anti-intellectual pogram lies the failures of Western Civilization today.

    Leading the charge on this degeneration of civil society are 1000′s of instances of foolish thinking as presented here on this site. If you can’t win in the battle of ideas, strong arming and thuggery is the definitive admission of a failed argument. Which of course is SOP of the left.
