Beck Loses Advertisers Over "Obama Racist" Comments

Remember when the crying circus freak claimed a few weeks ago that President Obama is "a guy who has a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture," and "a racist?"

Remember how, just two days later, the civil rights group ColorOfChange.org urged its members to write to the companies that sponsor Beck's show to discontinue advertising on his show?

Well, it looks like a few of those companies have gotten the message.

TVNewser reports that three companies that had advertised on the Glenn Beck Program on Fox News Channel have pulled their ads from his show. The companies in question are Progressive Insurance, Lawyers.com, and Procter & Gamble.

The moral of the story? When you use inflammatory comments to get a rise out of your audience and your base of ignorant, right-wing nutbags, you just might lose not only current advertisers but future ones, as other companies start to think twice about being associated with Beck’s show.
