Why stop with Beck?

Glenn Beck, the unstable B.S. artist who FoxNews has the Audacity of Dopes to call an actual journalist, is back on the air today, after the network forced him to take a weeklong “vacation.” FoxNews’ edict came after an uproar over comments Beck made that Pres. Obama “hates white people,” which resulted in the loss of (so far) 33 sponsors for Beck’s show. It will be interesting to see if Beck dials down the crazy, now that he’s been smacked down.

Meanwhile, more sponsors are said to be readying to drop his show, and now there are rumblings among progressives that someone should organize a campaign to convince sponsors to dump FoxNews altogether. I say why wait till someone organizes a campaign? If you, like I do, feel that FoxNews’ outright, endlessly repeated lies are beyond the pale (that's as politely as I can put it), then go ahead and contact the network’s sponsors and let them know how you feel.

Huffington Post, which refers to Beck’s program as “psychic exile Glen Beck's race-baiting carnival sideshow,” today offers a partial but lengthy list of FoxNews’ sponsors for you to choose from. Call 'em, boycott 'em, or both, it’s up to you — after all, it’s a free country. Here’s the list:
