Seems “the president is a racist” doesn’t work to well for people trying to sell you soap, legal services and car insurance.
After Glenn Beck called the president a racist Nazi, some of his advertisers decided that bottomless white rage is off-brand: Lawyers.com, Procter & Gamble and Progressive Insurance ads no longer appear during his show.
The three companies were responding to a pressure campaign started by Color of Change. A Fox News spokeswoman told TVNewser that the companies simply moved their spots to other Fox News shows, “so there has been no revenue lost” as a result of Beck’s ongoing on-air self-immolation. Only souls.
