Sponsors still dropping Beck like a bad muffler

Posted By on Tue, Aug 18, 2009 at 11:01 AM

OK, this is starting to get silly. Boomer With Attitude blog posts seem to be evolving into an ongoing tally of sponsors who’ve dumped Glenn Beck, but whaddaya gonna do?

Advertisers from all over the spectrum of U.S. businesses are dropping Beck like a tasered monkey, and we can hardly keep up. Yesterday, we told you that GMAC Financial had asked FoxNews to redistribute their bought ad space away from Beck’s show, bringing yesterday’s total to 11 ex-sponsors. Well, today you can add Walmart, Best Buy, CVS, Allergan, Broadview Security, Re-Bath and Travelocity to the list, boosting the grand total to ... ta-daa — 18 sponsors that don’t want to be associated with Glenn “Obama’s a racist ... I didn’t say that!” Beck. At least someone’s paying a price for spreading astonishingly ignorant views. Now, when’s somebody going to do the same for dim-witted Sean Hannity?

That hurts my feelings!
