Glenn Beck lost yet another advertiser today. Bringing the total to 299 advertisers that already disassociated themselves from Glenn Beck’s reckless vitriol and willful deceit. So, if I was Glenn Beck, I wouldn’t be making it harder for my few remaining advertisers to stick with me.
So, Glenn Beck’s remaining advertisers would be wise to keep his words in mind:
“They’re [Obama administration] gonna need a cookie. Because, right now, blood’s gonna start shooting out of their eyes. Look what the [Obama] administration has done just to my sponsors. See my list of who supports me? The commercials. So, they have my list. We More >
Following up on yesterday’s tirade, Glenn Beck talked again about the advertisers boycotting his show:
As with other advertisers, participants in the StopBeck effort immediately reached out to Paramount. We kindly requested that they follow the responsible action of hundreds of other former advertisers and refrain from advertising on Glenn Beck’s show.
Your tweets must have had some effect, because no further ads appeared on Glenn Beck’s program. And, this morning in a statement sent to the StopBeck effort, Paramount Pictures advised that they have no additional commercials scheduled on Glenn Beck’s program:
“Thank you for contacting us with your concerns. We have carefully More >
Glenn Beck claims that 298 advertisers boycotting his show (Update: 299 now) is irrelevant and insignificant. If that’s true, then why does Glenn Beck bother launching screeds like this one from his show today: (more…)
This chart gives perspective on some of Glenn Beck’s topics. From it, you can get a sense of what he spends his time talking about. For comparison, I looked at other shows on Fox News, CNN and MSNBC. Even by Fox News’ standards, Glenn Beck’s topic selections are somewhat out there. (more…)
Constant Contact’s ads recently started running on Glenn Beck’s program on Fox News.
As with other advertisers, the StopBeck effort reached out to Constant Contact. We kindly requested that they follow the responsible action of hundreds of other former advertisers and refrain from advertising on Glenn Beck’s show.
In a statement sent to the StopBeck effort, Constant Contact advised that they have pulled their ads from Glenn Beck’s show:
Our ads are no longer running during Glenn Beck’s program, and we will not be advertising on his show in the foreseeable future.
Great work all!
Your tweets and emails do matter. Many thanks for your continued More >
Yesterday, Michelle Obama was on the Tom Joyner show. She thanked folks for their prayers, saying:
And let me just tell your listeners that it means all the world to us to know that there are prayer circles out there and people who are keeping the spirits clean around us.
This morning, Glenn Beck warped this fairly benign statement into a claim that Michelle Obama is mixing voodoo magic into her Christianity; he also suggests that she’s summoning demons. Here’s the audio of Glenn’s conversation with a caller:
This latest smear is part of a continued trend against Michelle Obama. Recently, Glenn Beck More >
As of October 9, the broadcast of Glenn Beck’s show in the U.K. has run without any commercials for nearly eight months thanks to your efforts.
The Fox News Channel is broadcast in the U.K, which means Glenn Beck is as well. Along with the StopBeck – UK Effort, participants in the StopBeck Effort reached out and urged advertisers to stop sponsoring Mr. Beck’s vitriol, sexism and preying on racial anxieties. Once aware of the reckless vitriol they More >
Glenn Beck is like a babbling brook of gibberish. Seriously, I challenge anyone to decode this… (more…)
Well, this morning, I noticed that Fox News is not following Glenn Beck on Twitter. Fox News follows 42 people, which includes their significant personalities, their shows and some of their lesser known personalities – except for Glenn Beck.*
Ouch. Another byproduct of the increasing friction between Fox and Glenn Beck? Or, maybe, they’re just not interested in the same kind of “white power” tweets that Glenn Beck is?
