Advertisers Wisen-Up, Pulling $ From Glenn Beck

Filed under: Politics — Dr. Christopher Blackwell @ 02:30

Go to fullsize image  Three companies who run ads during Fox News’ Glenn Beck Show– NexisLexis Law Groups, Proctor & Gamble, and Progressive Insurance — today distanced themselves from Beck. LexisNexis has pulled its advertising from Beck and says it has no plans to advertise on the program in the future. Both Proctor & Gamble and Progressive Insurance called the Beck advertising placements an error that they would correct immediately.  The decision by the three companies comes as  after the controversial news host called President Obama a “racist” who “has a deep-seated hatred for white people” on “Fox & Friends” last week.
