Remember Glenn Beck? Remember Goldline?

Goldline International, Glenn Beck’s longtime sponsor, has been ordered by a Santa Monica court to refund $4.5 million to customers, set aside an additional $800,000 for future claims, and stop claiming that the government’s coming for their gold.

Adam Radinsky, the head of the consumer protection unit at the Santa Monica city attorney’s office said of the injunction:

This is a new day. Consumers in California and elsewhere, many of whom invested thousands of dollars and their life savings in the belief that the gold they were buying was a valuable and safe investment, will now get substantial relief. No one should have to suffer from predatory and deceitful sales practices. Whether they are buying gold or anything else, consumers expect a fair deal. We insisted that Goldline give them just that. We hope this case is a wake-up call to other large coin dealers and to other businesses. They need to know that it’s against the law to mislead consumers with false fears and misinformation. And consumers need to be especially careful when investing in this uniquely unregulated industry.

Yuri Beckelman, a former staffer for Weiner who worked on the Goldline investigation, felt vindicated by the injunction. He said in an email:

Goldline can try to spin it any way they want. But when you have to agree to change your business model and then pay a court ordered attorney to monitor your progress for the next five years, you’re admitting that what you were doing was wrong. While the millions in refunds Goldline was ordered to make will be meaningful to the people that were ripped off, the executives got off easy, and they know it.

Glenn Beck Demands Proof of Lies About George Soros

Forbes magazine rightfully stated that Fox News personality Glenn Beck had been “falsely vilifying” George Soros. Beck’s numerous conspiracy theories often include Soros, the financier, businessman and notable philanthropist. Beck didn’t agree with the statement about the false vilification and stated, “I’d like to know exactly what I lied about.”

Here you go:

BECK CLAIM: In 2004, Soros Called The Election “Not A Normal Election,” And Said That “In Periods Of Regime Change, Normal Rules Do Not Apply.” Accusing Soros of setting up a “shadow party” to interfere in the 2004 elections, Beck cited David Horowitz and Richard Poe’s The Shadow Party.

REALITY: Beck Used Comments From 1995 To Show That Soros “Didn’t Mince Words” In 2004. Those comments are actually from the 1995 book Soros on Soros: Staying Ahead of the Curve.

BECK CLAIM: Soros Advocated For “Globalization” By Saying, “The Main Obstacle Of A Stable And Just World Order Is The United States.” Citing Soros’ book, The Age of Fallibility: Consequences of the War on Terror.

REALITY: Soros Was Criticizing The Policies Of The Bush Administration And Said His Top Priority Was “[C]hanging The Attitude And Policies Of” The U.S.

BECK CLAIM: Soros Has “Waged A War Against Capitalism” Because He Said “It Poses Some Serious Threats.”

REALITY: Soros Was Explaining That Regulations Are Needed To Shield Individuals From Financial Bubbles.

BECK CLAIM: McCain-Feingold Legislation Was The Result Of 1994 Soros Speech.

REALITY: Feingold Campaigned On Campaign Finance Reform During His 1992 Election And Repeatedly Supported It In The Senate Prior To Soros’ Speech.

BECK CLAIM: Mccain-Feingold Bolstered 501(c)(3) Groups, “Which Can Advertise At Will.”

REALITY: 501(c)(3) Groups Are Banned From Political Advertising On Behalf Of Or In Opposition To Candidates.

BECK CLAIM: Kerry “Adopt[ed]” Soros’ Criticism Of The War On Terror.

REALITY: Beck Showed Kerry “Adopting” Position From Soros’ 2004 Book. The comment Beck attributed to Soros — “War is a false and misleading metaphor in the context of combating terrorism. Crimes require police work, not military action” — comes from Soros’ book that was published in 2004. [The Bubble of American Supremacy: Correcting the Misuse of American Power, Page 18]

REALITY: Beck’s Proof Of  Kerry “Adopting” That Position Included Comments Kerry Made In September 2003 — Before The Bubble Of American Supremacy Was Published.

BECK CLAIM: Soros “Set The Agenda” By Calling For “A Large Stimulus Package.”

REALITY: Obama, Congress, And Economists Had Already Called For Major Fiscal Stimulus. On November 5, 2008 — one day after Obama’s election and two-and-a-half weeks before Soros’ comments were published.

BECK CLAIM: Soros Manipulated Lawmakers To Pursue Cap And Trade. Discussing the Soros interview that was published on November 24, 2008

REALITY: Cap And Trade Has Been Debated In Congress For More Than 10 Years. Contrary to Beck’s claim that Soros manipulated Obama to introduce cap and trade legislation “days after” he was elected, Congress has been debating similar proposals for more than a decade. [The Washington Post, 8/19/01]

REALITY: Obama Supported A Cap And Trade Bill During The 2008 Election. In fact, then-Sen. Barack Obama supported legislation that would have created a cap-and-trade system while campaigning in 2008. [The Washington Post, 6/1/08]

BECK CLAIM: “Soros Was Asked If He Felt Guilt At All About Taking The Property From The Jews As A Teenager. He Responded, No.”

REALITY: Soros Said He “Had No Role In Taking Away That Property.” In an interview with Kroft, Soros explained that he felt no guilt because he “had no role in taking away that property.”

REALITY: Biographer Reported Soros “Collaborated With No One.” In Soros: The Life and Times of a Messianic Billionaire — a book cited by Beck during the program — Michael T. Kaufman detailed Soros’ reaction during the interview, as well as Soros’ actions in Nazi-occupied Hungary.

BECK CLAIM: Soros “Attended The Fabian Socialist London School Of Economics.” Beck said, “In 1947, the Soros family relocated from Hungary to England, where George attended the Fabian Socialist London School of Economics.” [Fox News, Glenn Beck, 11/9/10]

REALITY: LSE Is A Mainstream University That Many Prominent Conservatives Have Attended. While it is true that LSE was founded by four members of the Fabian Society in 1895, Beck’s suggestion that the school is a socialist indoctrination center is ridiculous.

BECK CLAIM: Soros Is Dangerous Because He Called For “A Managed Decline” Of The Dollar.

REALITY: Soros Said That “An Orderly Decline Of The Dollar Is Actually Desirable” To Boost Exports And Compensate For Decreased Consumer Spending. The comments Beck cited come from a 2009 interview Soros gave to the Financial Times, where Soros discussed concerns about the dollar’s relative strength to the value of other international currencies.

REALITY: Economist Paul Krugman Has Said, “The Truth Is That The Falling Dollar Is Good News.” In a New York Times column, Nobel laureate Paul Krugman

REALITY: Economist Nouriel Roubini Has Said: “[E]verybody Wants A Weaker Currency.” During an interview with Bloomberg Radio’s Surveillance, economist Nouriel Roubini was asked about the need for international currency coordination. Roubini said, “We’re not going to get the meeting because the reality is that everybody wants a weaker currency. The U.S. needs a weaker dollar to grow its exports. The Europeans needs a weaker euro to grow their exports. The Japanese need a weaker yen to grow their exports. Even the Swiss are intervening to prevent the Swiss franc from appreciating.”

REALITY: Economist Mark Zandi Has Said, “The Falling Dollar Has “Been Positive” And Was “A Real Boon To U.S. Businesses.” In a 2007 NPR interview, economist Mark Zandi was asked, “[H]ow is the fall of the dollar affecting the U.S. economy?” Zandi said that “on net, it’s been positive,” adding, “It’s been a real boon to U.S. business.”

BECK CLAIM: Soros “Collapses Regimes,” And America Is “His Target Now.”

REALITY: Soros Backed Groups That Were Nonviolently Opposed To Communist, Authoritarian, Or Corrupt Governments.

BECK CLAIM: Tides Foundation Gets “A Lot Of Their Funding” From Soros. Beck said: “And where does the Tides Foundation get a lot of their funding? George Soros.” [Fox News, Glenn Beck, 11/9/10]

REALITY: Tides Founder Says Soros’ Charity Funds “Far Less Than 5 Percent” Of Tides’ Budget. From a Politico op-ed by Tides founder Drummond Pike.

Glenn Beck Claims He’s “not into child pornography”

Glenn Beck suggests that he’s going to be set up and issues a strange disclaimer… Maybe it has something to do with his refusal to state publicly that he did not rape and murder a girl in 1990 (parody). Who knows…

From the November 12 edition of Premiere Radio Networks’ The Glenn Beck Program:

Glenn Beck’s Insane Airline Security Solution

BECK: You got a license to carry a gun, carry it on the plane

Here’s an idea… Why doesn’t Glenn Beck give this a try – try to carry a gun on a plane and let us know how that goes. What could go wrong? We’ll wait.

Glenn Beck Targets, Woman Gets Death Threats

This is how it goes and Fox News just stands idly by… Glenn Beck targets an innocent person and that person then receives death threats. But his supporters will turn a blind eye.

On October 25, 2010, Glenn Beck went after Kathy Tate-Bradish, who moderated an Illinois congressional debate with League of Women Voters Illinois Executive Director Jan Czarnik. Apparently Tate-Brandish declined a supposedly pre-planned request for the pledge of allegiance from a supporter of the Republican candidate. Czarnik later called the request “phony patriotism.”

But, Beck lashed out against Tate-Brandish in typical hate-fueled fashion with the following:

BECK: We wanted to look at the moderator, Kathy Tate-Bradish, from the League of Women Voters… Oh, she sounds so neutral and everything. I mean, she’s even neutral on the Pledge, apparently — just a typical woman voter trying to get the truth out. No, not so much — not so much.

She is on fire for Obama. She is a big-time Obama supporter. In fact, so much so, she’s part of his Organizing for America arm. Hmm. She’s even hosted a campaign event in her home in 2007, part of her post on OFA’s, Organizing for America Web site, “Hope Action Change.”

Tate-Brandish started receiving threats of violence soon thereafter.

Since then, death threats have appeared on “right-wing websites,” said Czarnik, who provided printouts to the FBI. She also reported menacing posts on Fox News Channel’s Facebook page and Beck’s website, The Blaze.

“We don’t say the Pledge of Allegiance at our events and we should be shot or hanged?” said Czarnik, who went to the FBI on Wednesday. “Who are these people?”

Joel Cheatwood, an executive who oversees Beck’s show, issued a statement after Fox News was contacted Thursday.

“We’re not going to comment on something that’s hypothetical as we have not heard about this complaint,” Cheatwood said.

If Beck were the student of history he wants his flock to believe, he would be giving a lesson on the Bellamy Salute and the how the current Pledge of Allegiance came to be. Perhaps he’s not the Nazi-hating, fascist-fearing goon he acts like… Would he still be up-in-arms if the attendees were forced to recite the pledge against their own free will?

How many times does this have to happen before Fox News does the responsible thing?

Attempted Cop Killer is Glenn Beck Fan

In the early morning hours of July 19, 2010, 45-year-old ex-felon Byron Williams allegedly became an attempted cop killer. California Highway Patrol officers were able to apprehend Williams after a lengthy gun fight on an Oakland, CA freeway. Only two of the ten CHP officers on scene were injured.

AFFIDAVIT: [Williams] “stated that his intention was to start a revolution by traveling to San Francisco and killing people of importance at the Tides Foundation and the ACLU.”

What does this have to do with Fox News?

Byron Williams is a devoted follower of Glenn Beck.

WILLIAMS: I would have never started watching Fox News if it wasn’t for the fact that Beck was on there. And it was the things that he did, it was the things he exposed that blew my mind.

According to Media Matters, Glenn Beck has attacked the Tides Foundation 29 times on his Fox News show.

Beck, it turned out, had attacked Tides 29 times on his Fox News show in the year-and-a-half leading up to the shooting.

Now, in exclusive interviews and written correspondence with journalist John Hamilton, Williams speaks for himself. He asks Hamilton to be his “media advocate” and repeatedly instructs him to watch specific broadcasts of Beck’s show for information on the conspiracy theory that drove him over the edge: an intricate plot involving Barack Obama, philanthropist George Soros, a Brazilian oil company, and the BP disaster.

Williams also points to other media figures — right-wing propagandist David Horowitz, and Internet conspiracist and repeated Fox News guest Alex Jones — as key sources of information to inspire his “revolution.”

In a separate exchange with Examiner.com’s Ed Walsh, Williams sought to defend Beck from “Obama and the liberals,” whom he said are afraid of Beck “because he often exposes things that are simply forbidden in news.” Williams said that Beck advocates non-violence and that he had already researched the conspiracy theories that informed his alleged plot — before seeing them “confirm[ed]” on Beck’s show.

In an interview at the Santa Rita Jail, Williams confirms his affinity for Beck and references, on numerous occasions, Beck’s conspiracy theory involving the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and connections to President Obama and George Soros.

WILLIAMS: I don’t think he’s a natural newscaster, you know what I mean? I look at it more like a schoolteacher on TV, you know? He’s got that big chalkboard and those little stickers, the decals. I like the way he does it.

Williams refers to those connected to this conspiracy theory (Obama, Soros, Petrobras, etc.) as Crime, Inc. So did Beck on June 21, 2010, in one of the videos Willaims repeatedly referenced.

Lewis Black: Glenn Beck Has Nazi Tourettes

It all makes sense… As Lewis Black points out, “This is a guy who uses more swastika props and video of the Nuremberg rallies than the History Channel.” The only reasonable explanation according to Black? “Glenn Beck Has Nazi Tourette’s.”

Christians Urged to Boycott of Glenn Beck

Since Glenn Beck began attacking churches that promote “social justice,” calling it “code language for Marxism,” Christians have been urged to boycott Glenn Beck. Last week Beck went so far as to call on Christians to leave their churches if they hear any preaching about social or economic justice, citing affiliations with Nazism and Communism.

Wantagh Memorial Congregational Church Pastor Ronald Garner put up the following sign in response to Beck’s statements.

GARNER: Wantagh Memorial Congregational Church is a very progressive church. We’re open and affirming in our denomination, which means we accept into the full life of our church gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people. We are a peace church, and so I just felt that it was a sign that should be in front of our building to say that Mr. Beck’s comments about the social justice being a perversion of the gospel was a total distortion of anybody that’s even given a cursory reading to the words of Jesus. [...]

I feel it was an unwarranted attack on Christians, and I felt like something needed to be said.

Rev. Jim Wallis, an evangelical leader in Washington. D.C., called on Christians to leave Glenn Beck. Wallis stated, “What he has said attacks the very heart of our Christian faith, and Christians should no longer watch his show… His show should now be in the same category as Howard Stern.”

Mr. Beck, in vilifying churches that promote “social justice,” managed to insult just about every mainline Protestant, Roman Catholic, African American, Hispanic and Asian congregation in the country – not to mention plenty of evangelical ones.

Even Mormon scholars in Mr. Beck’s own church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, said in interviews that Mr. Beck seems ignorant of just how central social justice teaching is to Mormonism.

Garner stated that, so far, he has only received positive responses to the sign above.

Glenn Beck Has Lost More Than 200 Sponsors

According to the Washington Post, more than 200 companies have pulled their ads from Glenn Beck’s show(s), including Apple who, apparently, has pulled all ads from FNC!

More than 200 companies have joined a boycott of Beck’s program, making it difficult for Fox to sell ads. The time has instead been sold to smaller firms offering such products as Kaopectate, Carbonite, 1-800-PetMeds and Goldline International. A handful of advertisers, such as Apple, have abandoned Fox altogether. Network executives say they believe they could charge higher rates if the host were more widely acceptable to advertisers.

There is a legitimate fear for Fox News staffers that Beck is becoming the face of the network. One Fox “journalist” stated that Beck “uses distorted or inflammatory rhetoric that undermines their credibility.”

Rush Limbaugh Questions Glenn Beck’s ‘Objective’ in Keynote Speech

You read that right, conservative radio personality Rush Limbaugh, like other conservative radio personality Mark Levin, has turned on his buddy, conservative radio personality Glenn Beck. Apparently Limbaugh didn’t entirely agree with Beck’s CPAC keynote speech and had this to say:

LIMBAUGH: I would not have said that the only people who can stop Obama should be excoriated for being just as bad…It would never occur to me to say that. I don’t know what the objective would be.

People are getting tired of Beck dividing, intentional or not, the Republican party.

Right Winger Mark Levin Goes After Glenn Beck

They’re going to start eating their own…

Conservative radio personality Mark Levin had some unkind words to say about fellow conservative radio personality Glenn Beck. Levin said, “Decide what you are. A circus clown, self-identified. Or a thoughtful and wise person. It’s hard to be both. You can’t wear the clown nose and not wear the clown nose at the same time.” He also had this to say:

I have no idea what philosophy Glenn Beck is promoting. And neither does he. It’s incoherent. One day it’s populist, the next it’s libertarian bordering on anarchy, next it’s conservative but not really, etc. And to what end? I believe he has announced that he is no longer going to endorse candidates because our problems are bigger than politics. Well, of course, our problems are not easily dissected into categories, but to reject politics is to reject the manner in which we try to organize ourselves. [..]

Finally, Beck is fond of congratulating himself for being the only or the first host to criticize George Bush’s spending. This is demonstrably false. … And as someone who fought liberal Republicans in the trenches when campaigning for Reagan in 1976 and 1980, I don’t need lectures from Beck, who was nowhere to be found, about big-spending Republicans.

Glenn Becks UK Show Without Sponsors for Almost a Week!

To all the challenged individuals who refuse to read and continually ask how the boycott is going  – here’s a question for you… Do you like apples?

Glenn Beck has lost 116 sponsors and his show in the UK has been without a single sponsor for SIX days!

How d’you like them apples??

The U.K. broadcast of Glenn Beck’s eponymous television program was forced to air free of paid advertisements on four consecutive days last week. This according to StopBeck.com, an extension of the anti-Beck campaign created by ColorOfChange.org. StopBeck.com confirmed that, with the latest group of defections from Beck’s overseas broadcast, Fox News Channel was forced to fill commercial breaks with news headlines and local weather updates from its U.K.-based sister network, Sky News, instead of paid advertisements.

The news comes on the heels of a new group of U.S. companies who have asked Fox News Channel to stop their ads from running or pledged not to run ads on the show going forward. The latest U.S. defections — Allstate Insurance, Anheuser-Busch, Best Western International, Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals (maker of Flomax), Brother International Corporation, Hear Music, Idaho Potato Commission, Intersections Inc., Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School, Marriott International, Nestlé USA, Republic of Macedonia, Starkist Co., United Healthcare, USFidelis, Volkswagen and Western Union — coupled with the international movement to bring the total number of companies distancing themselves from Beck to over one hundred.

“We’re incredibly thrilled that StopBeck.com has taken our campaign and successfully executed it internationally,” said James Rucker, Executive Director of ColorOfChange.org. “This is a huge blow against Glenn Beck. As we continue our fight against those that support Beck domestically, we will use this victory as further proof that more and more companies are taking a stand against his racial demagoguery.”

“People now on both sides of the Atlantic are using Twitter and other social media to let companies know that by advertising on Beck’s program, they are subsidizing hate,” said Angelo S. Carusone, lead organizer of StopBeck.com.  “Fox News’ willingness to use filler from Sky News, rather than address Beck’s fear mongering, raises real questions about the network’s priorities.”

Original Story

Our television media purchases are dictated by our marketing plan and are chosen based on time of day, such as early morning (6:00 – 10:00 a.m.) or primetime (8:00 to 11:00 p.m.); channel (ABC, Lifetime, ESPN, etc.) and audience demographics.

We do not dictate what program is on when our commercial airs. But we do frequently evaluate our media purchases to ensure that the programs we choose match our brand’s target demographics and overall advertising plan. In doing so, we have chosen to not air our commercial during Glenn Beck’s program going forward given a number of alternatives that meet our advertising plan’s criteria.

Thanks again for your inquiry.
