This Granny is Waging Counter Attack Against Advertisers Quitting Glenn Beck

I just read one of my "Twitter" messages and saw something that was disturbing and caught my eye:


Is Fox News Having Trouble Filling Glenn Beck’s Ad Slots?
Filing In For Michelangelo Signorile, Lizz Winstead Interviews Angelo of the StopBeck Effort

"For a moment, put aside the large number of NewsCorp ads that run on Glenn Beck’s sponsor dry show. Also, put aside the fact that Fox News has run free ads during Glenn Beck’s time slot just to fill ad ad space. Lately, Fox News has been running ads on Glenn Beck’s show that shouldn’t be there.

We’re always active. If an ad appears from a company that committed to ceasing advertisements on Glenn Beck’s show, we reach out to them right away. Recently, ads from three advertisers that made this commitment reappeared on Glenn Beck’s program: MetLife, Travelzoo/Fly.com and Northland Juices. So, we contacted them to see what’s up. All three advertised reaffirmed their commitment and advised that the ads were run in error."

Another webpage by this StopBeck Effort claims that there are over 100 other former advertisers and:

"Also, it has been reported that the Glenn Beck show is losing more than 50% of its weekly ad revenue as a result of this boycott. Notably: The New York Times recently reported that 296 companies refuse to have their advertisements run on Glenn Beck’s program. The report also explained that Fox News was having difficulty selling ads on O’Reilly and Fox & Friends on the days that Glenn Beck is scheduled to appear. Several months ago, The Washington Post reported that the number of companies that refuse to run ads on Glenn Beck’s show exceeds 200. http://stopbeck.com/dropped-sponsors/

Here is the list the supplied:

Notes: Roche has reneged on their commitment to cease sponsoring Glenn Beck.

  1. Waitrose has removed all advertising from the Fox News Channel in protest over Glenn Beck.
  2. Metropolitan Talent Management will not purchase any ads on the Fox News Channel in protest over Glenn Beck.
  3. Jack Daniels is pulling their ads from all political shows.
  4. Alpro Soya has pulled their advertisements from all of Fox News.
  5. Apple has removed all advertising from the Fox News Channel in protest over.
  6. Beginning April 5, Nutrisystem ceased honoring their commitment not to advertise on Glenn Beck’s program. Please contact them and urge them to honor their original commitment.

WOW! If this is true, I think all of Glenn's supporters need to launch a counter attack on all of these sponsors. We need to immediately begin writing letters, making phone calls, protesting outside their places of business . . . After all, isn't this the same strategy that the left is using? If they are so afraid of that minority, what will they do when, We, The People, the MAJORITY, stand up to them?

Who's with me on this? This old granny is going to battle and this is one that I know I will have your support! Glenn has stood by us, Fox News has stood by us and now it's time for us to stand by them.

Let's go America. Get your helmets and your boots on. Hup, 2, 3, 4 ... Leftist threats will be no more!
