Maybe you've heard about James Rucker and the civil rights group ColorOfChange.org. Maybe you've heard about the dozens of company ads the TV crybaby has lost in the last month, thanks to his idiotic comments about President Obama. Well, Beck's lost eleven more companies due to his big mouth.

Eleven new companies whose ads were recently seen during Beck’s program—Binder & Binder, Capital One, The Dannon Company, Discover, HSBC, ICAN Benefit Group Insurance, Infiniti, Jelmar (manufacturer of CLR All-Purpose Cleaner), Jordan McKenna Debt Counseling Network, Mercedes-Benz and Simplex Healthcare (creator of the Diabetes Care Club) —have pledged to ColorOfChange.org to take steps to ensure that their ads don’t run on Beck’s show. Fifty-seven companies have now committed not to support Beck’s show since ColorOfChange.org launched its campaign four weeks ago after the Fox News Channel host called President Obama a “racist” who “has a deep-seated hatred for white people” during an appearance on Fox & Friends.
Here's the updated list of companies Beck has lost:

• * • Progressive Insurance
