Ten more companies pull ads from Glenn Beck‘s show on Fox News Channel, including DirecTV, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch‘s News Corp. This brings the total up to 46 companies, including one associated with the network.

Adding to an increasing list of companies distancing themselves from Fox News Channel’s Glenn Beck, ten new companies whose ads were recently seen during Beck’s program—Applebee’s, Bank of America, Bell & Howell, DirecTv, General Mills, Kraft, Regions Financial Corporation, SAM (Store and Move), Travelers Insurance and Vonage—have pledged to take steps to ensure that their ads don’t run on Beck’s show. Forty-six companies have now committed not to support Beck’s show since ColorOfChange.org launched its campaign three weeks ago after the Fox News Channel host called President Obama a “racist” who “has a deep-seated hatred for white people” during an appearance on Fox & Friends.

Three of the latest defections — Travelers Insurance, Bell & Howell and DirecTv — join the list of advertisers who claim to have already placed Glenn Beck’s program on a “do not air” list, but whose ads have been seen on Beck’s program, apparently against their wishes.

“We could not be happier with the results of our campaign so far,” said James Rucker, Executive Director of ColorOfChange.org. “All 46 companies that have distanced themselves from Glenn Beck should be applauded for their stance.”

“We are still reaching out to companies whose ads we see during Beck’s nightly program,” Rucker continued. “Based on the fact that many of the recent ads on Beck’s program are for gold coins and News Corp properties, it looks like Fox News Channel is struggling to place advertisements on Beck’s show.”

    thank you very much for your courage to stand up for the right things. i try not to listen nor take in stories from the stories tellers on fox tv, fox radio, ect. I have never in my life seen grown men and women that lie with a serious face. it must be a desease, human beings cannot be that evil coming from a great country as the United State of America. I will continue to Boycott all sponsers to Fox any thing.

  2. im happy they are pulling thier ads from becks show he is not what u call an american.. to sprew such hate on obama.. thats so uncalled for.. also Im going to boycott sponsors who are still sponsoring ads during becks show..

  3. I would like to see a more easily accessible and continuously updated running list of those companies that have pulled their ads and those that remain as supporters of the Glenn Beck show. Contact details would be helpful so that people may be able to thank those companies that have left and continue to pressure those that have not.

    Beck’s show is inexplicably popular, so pulling ads does represent some sacrifice by these companies during difficult times. They deserve our thanks and support. The last thing we want is to unknowingly pressure companies that have already abandoned him.

    Perhaps the color of change campaign has been successful because it is focused on possibly the worst element of Fox “News”, so it is easier for companies to respond. If one such pathetic character could be ousted, it may cause the others to tone down their most outrageous commentary.

  4. I would like to echo Mike’s request that there be a prominent, simple, accurate list of current sponsors of Glen Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and Sean Hannity, — along with their responses to the boycott (if any) — that would enable socially responsible citizens to “vote with their dollars”.

    Nevertheless, I thank you for doing whatever you can. Your contribution is extremely valuable…
