    So, the number of corporate sponsors that have pulled their advertising dollars from The Glenn Beck Program grew to 20 on Tuesday. Walmart, Best Buy and Travelocity joined the list of companies that, depending on your point of view, should be classified as either responsible corporate citizens or easily bullied cowards.

    Personally I'm a big fan of Glenn Beck...so I'm interested in this.

    Amazing what the media can do. Hopefully it doesn't impact him long term. All he said was what most of us already knew.....

    How could these companies be considered to be practicing "Good Citizenship?"

    Anyway, I have joined the boycott of the advertisers who pulled their time on the Glenn Beck show. It will be difficult to totally avoid Walmart and Best Buy but I am going to do my best. I usually now shop online but sometimes you just can't wait and there are not many options to Worst Buy.

    Here is a list of Proctor & Gamble products and one person's (not me) alternatives at Target that saved them a lot of money:

    I'll have to get the list of companies boycotting Glen Beck, so I can boycott them. It is purely amazing how the liberals are totally against free speech all of a sudden. On an another note, Cindy Sheepan is going to the Vineyard to protest the Messiah's Iraq policies. Notice the lack of media overage now compared to when she was in Texas.

    There are (way too) many threads on this on FreeRepublic. Just search on "Beck."

    There is also a website:

    Here is their latest update:

    Agreed. This is just providing more exposure for Glenn Beck...these advertisers are just going to LOSE money - whereas Beck will be gaining a much bigger audience (those who want to see what he's all about). Personally I'm glad he's on Fox now - it was BS he was on CNN to begin with. He's finally where he belongs.

    "Glenn Beck, Lou Dobbs[​IMG], Neil Cavuto, Bill Oreilly[​IMG]......all good in my book."

    What about Sean Hannity, Rush, Micheal Savage...all are great Americans.

    Glenn Beck to Leave Fox News Program

    Updated: Glenn Beck is out at Fox News Channel.

    Beck’s Mercury Radio Arts and FNC have reached a deal which will see Beck “transition off of his daily program” later in 2011.

    Beck’s much-reported troubles with the advertising community are believed to play a role in the decision.

    I'd like to personally thank the guy for doing a fantastic job. Besides the Tea Party I believe he and Fox are solely responsible for awakening the sleeping giant.

    You can't tell me pressure from Soros had nothing to do with this.

    Isnt his show something like third in ratings? Seems strange to cancel a show that has that high of an audience.

    I may get hammered for this but I don't care for any talking head who IMO is way too far to the right or left. Although I tend to be conservative the Rush/Beck types annoy me almost as much as the Olberman/Maddow commentators. They see EVERYTHING according to the far right/left wing ideology of their respective political party.

    I like his radio show, I havent really watched the tv show that much. He does lose me when he starts getting to religious though. If I wanted a sermon I would go to church on Sunday morning instead of sleeping in.

    so a group called ColorofChange.org doesn't like what Beck said, launches a email campaign and all his sponsors sacrifice him on the alter of political correctness
    :tounge_smile:

    but Olbermann brings on this nit-wit Garafalo calling conservatives "tea-bagging, racist rednecks" and corporate America is OK with that ?
