Verizon Wireless Stops Advertising on Glenn Beck

According to Credo Action, Verizon Wireless has become the latest advertiser to dump Glenn Beck. In an email, the group confirmed that the nation’s largest wireless telecommunications network has stopped advertising on Beck’s Fox News program. Even a week of vacation has not completely slowed the steam of the Beck advertiser defections.

Becky Bond, the Political Director for Credo Action said, “I'm delighted to let you know that we received confirmation today that Verizon Wireless is no longer advertising on the Glenn Beck show. ColorOfChange.org has done amazing work to bring national awareness to Beck's race-baiting commentary on FOX News Channel. In the last few weeks, over 20 companies including Wal-Mart, CVS, Best Buy, and Travelocity have confirmed with ColorOfChange.org that they have ceased advertising on the show or placed Glenn Beck's program on a "do not air" list.”

This is an interesting development as the brass at Fox News were hoping that a week off would help cool some of the heat Beck generated with his advertisers when he called President Obama a racist. Once again, it is important to point out that Verizon Wireless did not quit advertising on Fox News, but they requested that their ads are not shown during Beck’s show.

Glenn Beck's popularity continues to grow in spite of the Obama administration's efforts to curtail advertisers. Beck is beating CNN and MSNBC by two to one and is pulling ahead of Sean Hannity. FOX news continues to dominate any news media outlet and has democrats befuddled. Guess the truth will always prevail. Go Glenn!

Do you have a source to support your claim that the Obama administration if behind the effort to curtail advertisers?  If so, can you please post it?
