...and Wal Mart makes 20 ! !

Now it is an even twenty advertisers that have made the rather wise decision to take their business away from the loony, dangerous, weeping, magic underwear sporting Glenn Beck.

From accusing Obama of eugenics (and weeping) and calling him a racist who hates white people (and weeping), Glenn has gone way past crazytown and right into the area of dangerous incitement of violence.

Sure, he has the right to say whatever woo woo nutter things he can come up with on his show, but that doesn't mean that mainstream advertisers have to support it.

And damn.....when Wal Mart says you are too right wing fringe for them.....then it might be time to step back, take a breath, and ask your masters in Salt Lake what exactly you should do next.



From colorofchange.org

Eight more Glenn Beck advertisers, including Wal-Mart – the world’s largest retailer – have confirmed to ColorOfChange.org that they pulled their ads from the controversial Fox News Channel broadcaster’s eponymous show. Allergan (maker of Restasis), Ally Bank (a unit of GMAC Financial Services), Best Buy, Broadview Security, CVS, Re-Bath, Travelocity and Wal-Mart join the dozen other companies who previously distanced themselves from Beck.

Twenty companies have pulled their ads from Beck’s show in just the last two weeks. The moves come after the Fox News host called President Obama a “racist” who “has a deep-seated hatred for white people” during an appearance on Fox & Friends. Previous companies who pulled their ads include ConAgra, GEICO, Lawyers.com, Men’s Wearhouse, Procter & Gamble, Progressive Insurance, RadioShack, Roche, SC Johnson, Sanofi-Aventis, Sargento, and State Farm Insurance.

I agree Peach. 20 is a great solid number. The more the merrier though.
