Glenn Beck crawls back to FOX Noise today after a management-induced vacation with 36 fewer companies willing to advertise on his show than when he left. All dumped him in response to calling President Obama a “racist.”

According to ColorofChange.org, a group that promotes political action,  launched the ad boycott campaign to get advertisers to abandon him. 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.

The Clorox Co., the maker of bleach and household cleaners and a former Beck advertiser, released a statement saying:

“We do not want to be associated with inflammatory speech used by either liberal or conservative talk show hosts.”

Beck, a radical, rightwing Republican and Mormon, as a well as a recovering alcoholic, has made a career of making incendiary comments such as, “the US needs to be saved by another successful Osama bin Laden attack, to protect us from illegal immigrants.

    CNN is to blame for Beck being on cable TV.

    It was CNN who gave him a program that no one watched for 2 years. He went to FOX and found his true voice and an audience of 3 million loyalists.

    One of the many reasons I detest CNN. Frankly, I think Beck needs to be institutionalized. He is a dangerous individual. Lock his ass up.

    Beck is a sniveling whack job who, like Limbaugh, managed to find a media pathway to the village and entertain the villagers with his insanity. FOX is a cesspoll of people like Beck. This is where they go to gather and die. These people are no longer part of the human race.

    I stopped watching CNN a few weeks ago and the only thing I miss is their financial show on Saturday mornings. Otherwise to hell with them.

    I’m glad Beck lost 33 advertisers. I’m proud I signed that petition.

  4. Walk on Socks says:

    I may Tivo Beck’s show today just to see if he’s on his best behavior or if he’s back to his usual shenanigans.

  5. Estacada says:

    Fuck You, Glenn Beck.

    And FOX and CNN, too.

    Keep this in mind the next time someone says boycotts don’t work.

  7. Aunt Peg says:

    I remember seeing Beck on CNN a few years ago.

    He struck me as a bore and not very educated. I was surprised how someone like him could get a TV show of his own but what do I know? FOX has O’Reilly?

    That is the funniest picture I have seen in my life. If you despise Glenn “sniff-sniff, I just love America” Beck as much as I do, then you would understand why. We have to put up with the Mormon right here in AZ and they make me sick. They just love this asshole. Christopher, would you mind if I copied the pic and made it my new avatar on AzCentral.com?

  9. TOM339 says:

    Discover Card
    Applebees
    Binder & Binder

    These three national firms are still advertising on Beck’s Monday program.

    Apparently, they didn’t get the memo or they agree with Beck’s assertion that Obama is a racist and hires radical, Black Panthers, to work for him.

    So, what about them?
