Who’s still running ads during Glenn Beck’s show?

Dear Daniel,

At least 120 advertisers have reportedly dropped their ads from Glenn Beck’s Fox News program since he called President Obama a “racist” who has a “deep-seated hatred for white people” last summer.

Since that time, Beck has not slowed his demonizing on-air rampages. Recently, he suggested that the progressive movement and the Democratic leadership are “wielding a gun [that] they’re ready to use against the American people.”

Over 6,000 people joined you in petitioning Beck’s sponsors last week. Now, we need to send a message to Fox’s remaining advertisers: Put your money where your mouth is.


The Ad Council is one of several dozen brands that has recently advertised on The Glenn Beck Show. In fact, on Wednesday they ran a PSA on behalf of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s campaign for child seat safety.

Will you call The Ad Council at 212-984-1923 and ask them to stop supporting Glenn Beck’s brand of hate? (You’ll be connected with the Manager of Corporate Communications). Report back to us on how the call went: http://action.seiu.org/page/s/stopbeckads4.

Beck’s ratings only matter to Fox if his numbers convince advertisers to purchase time on his program. With your help, we can make sure some of these sponsors know that it is never okay to support hate.

Help convince The Ad Council to end their support for Glenn Beck’s broadcast of hate.
Call 212-984-1923, and then report back on how the call went:


In Solidarity,

Michelle Ringuette
