AP: List of Fox advertisers no longer airing commercials on Beck reaches 33

August 23, 2009 3:20 pm ET by Media Matters staff


From an August 23 Associated Press article:

Glenn Beck returns to Fox News Channel after a vacation on Monday with fewer companies willing to advertise on his show than when he left, part of the fallout from calling President Barack Obama a racist.

A total of 33 Fox advertisers, including Walmart, CVS Caremark, Clorox and Sprint, directed that their commercials not air on Beck's show, according to the companies and ColorofChange.org, a group that promotes political action among blacks and launched a campaign to get advertisers to abandon him. That's more than a dozen more than were identified a week ago.

While it's unclear what effect, if any, this will ultimately have on Fox and Beck, it is already making advertisers skittish about hawking their wares within the most opinionated cable TV shows.

The Clorox Co., a former Beck advertiser, now says that "we do not want to be associated with inflammatory speech used by either liberal or conservative talk show hosts." The maker of bleach and household cleaners said in a statement that is has decided not to advertise on political talk shows.

Time/Life's collection of Pat Boone's greatest hits?

9. Doubt it, Pirate
As I understand it, Whole Foods customers have been overwhelmingly composed of Progressives and Liberals.

14. I know. I was joking. That is why the CEO was such an idiot to write an OPED slamming HCR.

2. Political talk shows - that covers all of FOX.
So I expect there won't be ANY Clorox commercials on the FOX Opinion Channel.

5. shows how little demand there is for these right wing morons
and how much money is behind them by political interests to look as if they were popular.

I always thought the GOP was like a rich fancy peacock, spreading its feathers to appear larger than it is.
