As with other advertisers, the StopBeck effort reached out to Michelin. We kindly requested requested that they follow the responsible action of hundreds of other former advertisers and refrain from advertising on Glenn Beck’s show.
Well, your efforts worked! In a statement sent to the StopBeck effort, Michelin’s spokesperson advised that the ads were run in error and confirmed that no more Michelin ads will run on Glenn Beck’s show.
Our policy does not allow for advertising on shows such as Glen Beck [sic]. Thank you for alerting us to what More >
Jewish groups are condemning a recent string of antisemitic smears from Glenn Beck.
The Anti-Defamation league released a statement condemning the attacks as “over the top:”
New York, NY, November 11, 2010 … The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today criticized as “completely inappropriate and offensive” remarks by Glenn Beck on his radio and television programs, in which he inaccurately connected George Soros, who was then a young boy, to the actions of others in sending Jews to death camps during the Holocaust.
On his November 10 radio show, Beck described how Soros, who was born in Hungary to Orthodox Jewish parents, “used to go around More >
As of today, November 9, the broadcast of Glenn Beck’s show in the U.K. has run without any commercials for nearly nine 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 More >
As with other advertisers, the StopBeck effort reached out to ADT. We kindly requested 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 posted to their Twitter page, ADT advised:
Just one rub: ADT ads have actually run multiple times over the past couple weeks. So, we reached out to ADT for further clarification. Specifically, we wanted to confirmation that ADT’s ads would no longer run on Glenn Beck’s program. ADT’s spokesperson advised that ADT was More >
Based on his insulting rant last year, we already know how little Glenn Beck thinks of India. But, his latest screed about President Obama’s upcoming trip to India goes even further. In a long tirade, Glenn Beck worried that “Muslim nut jobs” who think Obama is a “sellout” Muslim might try to assassinate him in India.
And, tooting that racial dog whistle that Beck wears around his neck, he also compared President Obama to P.Diddy arriving with his “thugs.” From Glenn Beck’s November 4 radio show (emphasis added):
Glenn Beck: Is India not a hot bed for Islamic radicalism?
Mike Baker: I wouldn’t call it that. More >
A few weeks ago, we noted that Fox News seemingly snubbed Glenn Beck with their election promos. At the time, our detractors argued that Glenn Beck doesn’t engage in standard political coverage so there was no issue. Oh, really now?
You see: Fox News isn’t letting Glenn Beck participate in their election night coverage. But, instead of sitting this one out, Glenn Beck is holding his own competing coverage on his website. Yes. Really.
From his newsletter:
Get Glenn on Election Night: Insider Extreme is the only place you will be able to find Glenn on election night. Tune in at 7pm EST on Tuesday More >
For a moment, put aside the large number of NewsCorp ads that run on Glenn Beck’s sponsor dry show. Also, put aside the fact that Fox News has run free ads during Glenn Beck’s time slot just to fill ad ad space.
Lately, Fox News has been running ads on Glenn Beck’s show that shouldn’t be there.
We’re always active. If an ad appears from a company that committed to ceasing advertisements on Glenn Beck’s show, we reach out to them right away. Recently, ads from three advertisers that made this commitment reappeared on Glenn Beck’s program: MetLife, Travelzoo/Fly.com and Northland Juices. So, we More >

This will be the first chance I’ve gotten to interact with StopBeck effort participants, so I’m really looking forward to it.
Last week, Glenn Beck issued a call to action. He urged his radio listeners to give the Chamber of Commerce its biggest day in fundraising history. And, according to the Chamber, that’s exactly what happened.
Well, whatdya know, guess who just made a massive ad purchase on Glenn Beck’s non-Fox News businesses? The Chamber of Commerce!
It was a big ad buy too – filling up all three of Glenn Beck’s available advertising slots.
So, to summarize, Glenn Beck asks his fans to give money to an organization. That organization in turn gives a hefty portion of that money directly back to Glenn Beck More >
