Beck Watch: Boycott Decimates Advertisers


Five hundred and sixty thousand dollars. That’s what ColorofChange estimates Glenn Beck has cost Fox News since the beginning of the Beck boycott last month. Despite lackluster boycott publicity and the much-ballyhooed 9/12 march on Washington, 62 national advertisers appear to have dropped the show since August. 

Here’s the list of who’s still hangin’ in there 

Lear Capital

Liberty Medical

ExtenZe

News Corp. (The Wall Street Journal)

Rosland Capital

LifeLock

Conservatives for Patient’s Rights

Clarity Media Group (The Weekly Standard)

Roche Diagnostics (Accu-Chek Aviva)

Citrix (GoToMeeting)

Merit Financial

Goldline International, Inc

Carbonite

THE BIG QUESTION...

as we head into 2020 is whether politics and media will be a billionaires’ game, or a playing field where the rest of us have a shot.

Please join us with a tax-deductible, year-end donation so we can keep going after the big stories without fear, favor, or false equivalency.
