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

Liberty Medical

ExtenZe

News Corp. (The Wall Street Journal)

Rosland Capital

LifeLock

Conservatives for Patient’s Rights

If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
