, I almost kinda feel sorry for him at this point...


...nah, not really. He's a cunt

Because of that pressure, Color of Change announced today that Walmart, a key bank with GMAC Financial Services, Best Buy, CVS, Travelocity, Re-Bath, Broadview Security and Allergan have all backed out, bringing the list of former Glenn Beck advertisers to Twenty.

Other high-profile companies shaken loose from the Fox editorialist's fold include Lawyers.com, Procter & Gamble, Progressive Insurance, State Farm, S.C. Johnson, GEICO, Men's Wearhouse, Sargento, ConAgra, Roche, Sanofi-Aventis and RadioShack.

"We are heartened to see so many corporate citizens step up in support of our campaign against Glenn Beck," said James Rucker, executive director of Color of Change, in a media advisory. "Their action sends a clear a message to Glenn Beck: Broadcasters shouldn’t abuse the privilege they enjoy by spewing dangerous and racially charged hate language over the air. No matter their political affiliation, hate language doesn’t belong in our national dialogue."

Glenn Beck is a huge twat.

EDIT: Watching the clip, I find it pretty funny that he puts Socialism and Totalitarianism together.

Corporations? Standing up for something half decent, probably has more to do with not wanting to be associated with a racist, but still, funny news.

How long till Becks off the air you think?

He's not just a conservative. He's a Fox News conservative. Basically anyone who thinks freely is a socialist.

He's an American Conservative talk show host. He's pretty dumb, and makes racist accusations and then lies about them. He's also insane, and has been known to cry on the air.

The speed with which he can say something, on tape, and then immediately deny that he said it is frankly amazing.

Unfortunately he is. If you look at the current healthcare debate the majority (or certainly an extremely loud minority) of the anti-reform side are informed by Glenn Beck's ridiculous rants and lies about Eugenics.

Give it a bump around midnight.

I think Glenn Beck will suddenly lose all sense of sanity like the Howard Beale character in Network. And soon rile up a milita. (Maybe.)

Good. I want to see his show get cancelled. I used to tolerate him, but ever since he moved to Fox News, he's basically turned into another Sean Hannity.

Yeah, was watching stuff about it, the town hall meetings, most of the random people are just shouting arguements word for word that they heard on fox.

Their was also a letter or pamphlet or something that whent around that told conservatives they should arrive early in large groups and get up front near the speaker so when the conservative speaks it sounds like they have the most support.

Funny/stupid stuff.

Edit: to anthem, thats just sad, soviet style music, obama isn't anywhere near socialism, let alone the soviet stalinism.

Ugh, just let him be. Yes, he is an annoying, misinformed twat but getting this worked up about how wrong he is has to make him feel important in some way. He will eventually die out just like most other leeches that our media has found.

You would have gotten the same response from me no matter when you posted it.

Fox News gives conservatives a bad name. Nothing could ever give Fox News a bad name because it's already an over-biased conservative hell hole of an excuse for a news station.

Think you meant nothing could give fox a good name, and I'd agree. They claim to be unbiased, but I mean, thats clearly b.s., watch five minutes of it and you'll see why.

Fox News already has a bad name. I don't watch it, but I'm forced to listen to it whenever I'm downstairs, since my dad has it on pretty much all the time in his office. It's a hotbed of tinfoil hats.

It's also the stupidest ****ing argument ever to say Beck gives fox a bad name. They hired him. It's easy enough to say if whatever it is thats name has been soured isn't an inclusive organisation (i.e. you could say Hitler gave christianity a bad name, because one only needs to self-identify as christian in order to be christian).

But to be a presenter on fox you need to be HIRED by fox, and obviously fox hires only journalists it deems fit.
