81 87 advertisers pull their money from Glenn Beck show

UPDATE: Correction...as of this evening, 87 advertisers have ditched their sponsorship of Glenn Beck's show. Here's the list of advertisers who have NOT boycotted Beck's histrionics and hate-mongering--and sponsored his show tonight. In the order they appeared (hat tip to Media Matters):

Roche Diagnostics (Accu-Chek Aviva) | American Advisors Group | Rosland Capital Nestle (Nescafe Dolce Gusto) | Hear Music (Paul McCartney, "Good Evening New York City") | Merit Financial | Lifestyle Lift | LifeLock | News Corp. (The Wall Street Journal) | TaxMasters | Permier Bathrooms, Inc. | Freije Treatment Systems (EasyWater Systems) | Goldline International, Inc. | The Foundation for a Better Life

Since he called President Obama "a racist" who harbors a "deep-seated hatred for white people" in July 2009, Glenn Beck has yet to accept responsibility for his actions or apologize. In the wake of Beck's refusal to do the right thing, hundreds of thousands of Americans angered and offended by his indefensible comments have stepped in to do just that: hold Glenn Beck accountable.

More than 285,000 people have called on the Fox News program's sponsors to pull their support from Beck's show. And 81 advertisers have discontinued their commercials from airing during Beck's show.

Beck's racially divisive rhetoric, and falsehoods peddled as truth, have no place on a network that positions itself as a source of news. Journalistic integrity may not be at a high point in America right now, but Fox News really lowers the bar across the board. Scaring the American public with baseless conspiracy theories and outlandish accusations towards our President and other public figures and organizations that stand up for working people is unacceptable.

Companies that have NOT stepped away from Beck and Fox News, via Media Matters:

Rosland Capital | US Chamber of Congress | American Advisors Group | Goldline International, Inc. | TaxMasters | LifeLock | Clarity Media Group (The Weekly Standard) | Roche Diagnostics (Accu-Check Aviva) | USfidelis | Wholesale Direct Metals | Lifestyle Lift | Identity Guard | Superior Gold Group | Hear Music | IRSTaxAgreements.com | Sony Music Entertainment | Imperial Structured Settlements | National Review

Help keep these major advertisers from returning to the Fox News show. Hold Fox News and Glenn Beck accountable for Beck's race baiting and fear-mongering rhetoric.
