Why Stop At Glenn Beck?
The campaign to appeal to Beck's advertisers for his racist commentary has been a huge success. We need to keep the pressure on to ensure he doesn't come back from his sudden "vacation". However, why stop there? Bill O'Reilly and Rush have said far worse things and gotten away with it. Rush sang that disgustingly racists song on the air and O'Liely is partially responsible for killing Dr. Tiller. We should work as hard to campaign against these filthy racist liar's advertisers as well. And Rush, I know you are reading this. We are coming for you.

1. I felt that the boycott should have been against Fox News for hosting him
It's all well and good that Beck was boycotted, but if those same sponsors are still buying airtime during Fox News' other 23 daily hours, what's the net real benefit, other than letting Beck complain that he's the target of a Liberal-driven vendetta?
